Exactly right. They haven't even filled the West Stand up so there's no point opening the entire stadium and pay more staff to work. They have certainly had the South Stand open for cup games last season but only one bar and it was always dead.

Plus it looks better since they moved the TV gantry to the East stand as it'll look like close to a full house ?

I figure this isn't on riverside live is it? Cup games don't get streamed?

You're right. There are no cup games on the website. Is it streamed on any of the betting sites? Seem to remeber that some of the sites streamed all the early rounds.

Anyone seen on twitter the club have mucked Red Faction about with tickets?

Aye, it's a disgrace. Club are discriminating against them as they're allowing other people who aren't South Stand STH to sit in the block they were going to be based in. Atmosphere will be dead now and it will probs cause friction between them and the club.

Very strange, think he's come around a little more in the last few tweets.

Safety is paramount, of course. The club would be much more liable to abuse if they allowed things to go on and something bad happened. If they fear something will happen, then fair enough, they need to take action. I know the stewards and police will have their say on this.

But communication is dreadful though, if nothing else. They spend ages developing this relationship with these fans who do their utmost to create an amazing atmosphere at the stadium, put together displays and all sorts... and then being throw them under a bus at a moment's notice. It baffles the mind. Imagine the stadium without the Red Faction... Christ.

Dijksteel   Wood   Friend   Bola

 

     Malley   Howson   Saville

 

Tavernier    Fletcher     Browne

 

I’d like to see Howson/McNair tried in the holding-midfield role, Howson especially is much better on the ball than Clayts and his defending has improved massively in my opinion. 

Fletch fully deserves a chance to be our first choice striker, his finishing and movement has looked very good (should be on 3 goals right now) Britt has worked hard but been on the edge of games. 

I think Marcus Browne has to be our set LW this season. We can’t play Fletch in that position as he offers no defensive help to the LB whatsoever and leaves us exposed. Browne has a lot of potential and for me has to start at Blackburn too.

    • If we can afford Hughton we can afford Karanka. I don't care about the dangers of nostalgia, just give me that beautiful man back. 
    • Bola and Dijksteel are very raw but certainly have potential. Sorry for repeating this point for about the third time on here, but them two would massively benefit from a top quality coach who will drill them defensively - someone akin to Karanka. If the plan is to buying young talent and improve them, like we are led to believe, with good coaching and game time then having Woodgate as our manager completely undermines it.
    • 2-0 to us. Bounce back from the Leeds result (I hope).
    • Either way he was cack. Relegation season if I remember right (09)?
    • Sorry to leave you waiting, work has been a bit hectic. I've broken your points into 3 areas.  1. The point I'm trying (and failing) to make is that from Woodgate's original press conference it seems he has a preferred style that he would like to play. This style is his ultimate end goal, how he would like us to play. This is obviously not going to happen overnight, hence why we have spent the pre-season and first few games playing "his style". It is my opinon that this is laying the foundations for us to play this way. At the present moment in time I do not feel the squad can competently play this style and as such we have reverted back to a style that the players have a familiarity with, that they can play. When Jokanovic took over Fulham, I'd argue that the free flowing style they went up with was certainly not how they started playing under Jokanovic in his first 6 months in charge. But I'd almost guarantee that he was training the group of players he had certain elements of his preferred style.  2. I'm one of the first to acknowledge that we weren't going to be signing 10 players due to our financial constraints. But to answer your question I do feel that if we had got another couple of wide players in, we may have seen Woodgate persist with "his style". I do also feel however that to get to this end point in style it would take more than just the summer window and the upcoming window. By saying this about signings I'm not admitting that we would be a swash buckling side that would sweep all before them, but it would be seen as another piece of the puzzle to help us towards Woodgate's style. Again adding to the foundations that are slowly been knitted together, like the fact we played a certain way during pre-season and the first couple of games.  Basically what I'm trying to get across is that I feel we are aiming for a certain style of play and that we are adding bit by bit certain elements of this style. Whether it is the pressing element, like we saw in the Luton, Brentford, Hull and Bristol City games (in my opinion), interestingly we played a 4-3-3 in 3/4 of those games. Or whether it is by the need of having more squad depth to allow us to try and play a 4-3-3 on a more frequent basis. 3. I've kind of half answered this in the bit above. It is of my opinion that we would see a 4-3-3 a lot more often this season if we had signed another winger (or 2) in the summer. The fact that we didn't for me is a key reason in us playing a back 5 often. I also feel a big problem is our total lack of creativity in the team. I also do not feel that we are a player or 2 away from implementing Woodgate's system. Jokanovic signed 11 permanent players in his first full season at Fulham, I don't think we need quite as many but certainly there are key positions we need filling. A striker who will press, wingers/inside forwards, a play maker in the middle, a defensive midfielder and for me a centre half that is comfortable with the ball at their feet.
