If you want support from the rest of us to keep your seats you need to put some effort in.
Just as well I'm not in the back of block E then isn't it!

The most sensible suggestion I've seen to date would be to move the studio and fill the corner with seats to join the HF and the Arthur together and people wanting to join these groups could fill the corner, gives them room to expand without all the s**t that's going on at the moment. The TV cameras will go to them wherever they sit, and if the noise is going to spread it can spread through 2 stands. But no the HF want block E!
Planning permission has already been granted (subject to Mayoral approval) for 683 additional seats in the corner between the LH and the AW. The approved plan is here:

To view the link you have to Register or Login

The top section of the new seating involves relocating the Sky "studio" which is rarely used (even when Sky are showing our games they invariably use an external studio). However the box is a Premier League requirement, so redevelopment of the top section of the corner would have to wait for the main stand redevelopment. No reason however why, say, 300 seats (rail seats?) in the lower part of the corner section could not be put in for next season with a temporary roof at the level of the bottom of the Sky studio?

Could be a viable alternative to moving ahead straight away with Block E and would test the HF's capacity to link with the AW to create an expanded corner cauldron of noise. Admittedly the sight lines from that corner may not be great, but the HF focus is on supporting not having the best view.

I am not suggesting that the central singing section idea be abandoned. The support for the idea appears widespread, but timing is important and the name of the game at the moment is getting the HF back in, but with a clear understanding that the central singing section will come in alongside rail seating.

You can always get what you want. Accept it.
It is only the anti-HF that has resorted to childish name-calling though.

Wow - Not at all - I don't deny that there is good support but at the same time I can't ignore you suggesting that the rednblue's support reflects their 6k subscribers.

This is the solution

Never understood why the back of the Arthur isn't the main area, acoustics are amazing

The old terracing there was fantastic, and in those days the average crowd was between 6-10k!

If people really engage their brains for just a minute they will realise that no one is against improving the atmosphere in the ground but it is not right or fair to shove people out of their seats who have been there for years to accomplish it. That is bullying. All of this throwing toys out of pram stuff by rejecting what they had combined with a poor team performance killing the support has left a bad taste of what the HF are all about - themselves or the club?
