Reading wont bring many so segregation shouldnt be an issue although it got lively at the Forest game in that corner

I was in a meeting with some other fans from around the Championship yesterday and there is a problem at certainly one or two grounds with fans sitting near to away areas. A couple of clubs are now being far more careful about who can occupy those blocks of seats or even closing them off completely.

Which clubs are those?

Understand that, but closing half the south stand seems a little excessive!

Tsk, Mr. Bumpkin. All know the beating heart of the club resides in the North Stand. Most of us there have been watching the Boro longer than those in the South Stand have been alive.

Interesting, I suppose no one needs the aggro but wouldn’t the easy answer be hire more stewards?

Since one ticket is thirty quid and a steward makes a tenner an hour for three hours seems simple maths, as opposed to closing a whole block. Seems a shame if that’s the part of the stadium most people would like to go to, and empty seats on TV are never a great look.

Would be the worst job in the world holding the line between away and home fans though, I wouldn’t fancy it!

The biggest premiership derby games seem to be able to cope with little or no gaps between opposing fans for e.g. Arsenal v spurs.

And we wonder why there's 2 empty blocks .. what happened when Crooks scored the section sat on the end immediately ran towards the Reading Supporters rather than celebrate the goal
