It is interesting - was it the entire lower tier right around the ground?
They were not locked up so we were actually safe standing as the seats were upright and you had to pull them down to sit down.
So, how was that for a safe standing experience?
We all stand just about every match anyway but the only real difference is the safety rail.
Law change or no law change. How can it possibly be less safe to stand with a rail than stand without them?
Rail "seats" are here.

My only concern is it would be difficult to get out in a hurry if needed. But then they've got tighter security than any ground I've been to.
They really should put in big bold letters on the ticket that you aren't allowed to take bags in though.

Think the club could perhaps look at saving the tickets at the front to sell to older folk who can't stand the whole game. Might be a bit tricky to set up.

Once the standing is official then you can set aside blocks for sitting and it doesn't have to be at the front.
I didn't think it made it any more difficult to get out than at a normal away game - just about everyone stands every game away from the Riverside anyway. Sometimes gaps between seats are wider than that (a surprise), sometimes narrower.
The seats themselves were proper seats, often rail seats have been small, uncomfortable metal ledges when used in Germany.

Rob - that's kind of self fulfilling. As soon as the people on the front couple of rows stand, no one else has a choice as they can't see unless they stand.

Like the other poster above, I would sit if I had a chance. Quite a lot of people sat down in my section of the stand at Cardiff, when people weren't standing up in front.

Yep, what we have at the moment is enforced standing, and it's a pain.

I was in Block 113 behind the goal but the view was as good as Iíve ever been at a ground. Itís not like all other new stadia. You really do feel like youíre closer to the action - certainly more so than at quite a few stadia I could mention.

It does have rail seats which are installed and ready to go should they be given the green light to implement 'safe standing' - It was specifically built with this in mind.

I believe it would be 2 people standing to each retracted seat. You would still need a ticket to stand in a specific row/spot etc
