The Albion considers safe standing sections

Hi all,
Apologies for having been inactive on the forum for the past few months. Was away doing fieldwork and then life simply got busy.

Many of you have probably seen this already, but thought that I would share the link to a BBC article about interest in having safe standing sections at the Amex:

The club I support here in the States, Seattle Sounders, has a number of sections designated as standing sections, including the section where we have our season tickets. I definitely enjoy the experience more when standing, perhaps because it helps to make me feel more actively engaged. Anyway, would be interested to hear the thoughts of other forum members.

I think it's a great thing. There should be sections for those who want to stand, so there's choice, instead of being dictated to, by rules that don't apply.

Standing was blamed for deaths when we all know the truth now.
