Would be a move back in time to when those who wanted to stand at Selhurst had to go behind the goal. And if you wanted to sit you had to go along the side of the pitch.
I was annoyed when they installed seats without consultation in front portion of the Arthur, forcing me to move to Holmesdale to continue to stand. But you soon get used to your new matchday environment.

FWIW I agree with Yoda.

Safe standing will come, and the right time to install it is the Summer break when the new Main Stand is about to open.

Plenty of people on all four sides of the ground will want or need to move at that time for various reasons:

- The front 6 rows of the Whitehorse will disappear

- The away section in the Arthur Wait will have to increase to 3000

- Season ticket holders from various stands will want to move about, some to the new stand, some to other locations

Palace are already trying to price out people without kids from the Whitehorse End, by making the adult price in line with the Lower Holmesdale (unless you are buying kids tickets)

Having a stadium wide reshuffle at such a time would be the time to do it - when there are 8,000 extra seats to play with. Renewing season ticket holders should get first dibs on standing places

The difficult decision is how to allocate the standing positions?

Renewing season ticket holders should get first dibs, just make it clear the central few blocks are 'singing' blocks.

Completely disagree. There is a massive push and demand for rail seating to come in by disaffected fanbases across England. Fan groups are working hard to get this in - even with Liverpool on board and helping to lead the charge. Meanwhile Spurs have designed their new stadium around the ability to be able to use safe standing. We'd be crazy to delay.

Palace can't be complacent here and hold off. Loads of clubs will have it and be enjoying the benefits by then; if it's coming in we need to act fast to keep up with other clubs, otherwise we're falling behind.

Let's get it in ASAP and give all Palace fans the chance to embrace it and let's also make sure that those who can't enjoy it are looked after too.

Although I agree with the sentiments you can't just rush something like this, as it's not even been agreed yet by the government and even if it is you can virtually guarantee it will be limited and on a trial basis.

Yep, agree with that, but I'm saying that once it gets the green light, let's get it in.

Too often as fans on here we get bogged down in the ins and outs, but really need to be leading on this with the fan culture and atmosphere we have. Once it's over the line, let's get it in or we'll be pipped to the post by clubs across the country when we've been one of the most vocal on the issue.
