1 week and no new rumours post on the rumours page. I hear a rumour which is more a report that United have put in for safe standing at OT can you can confirm this rumour Ed's?

{Ed001's Note - it was done in December. It is a trial in the north-east corner for up to 1,500 rail seats.}

What do you make of it Ed001?

{Ed001's Note - it is not to my liking, but the rail seats are the best solution to persistent standing. Problem is people look at it through eyes tinged with nostalgia and forget how crap standing actually is for the majority. If you are short you can't see anything, which makes it crap for kids. If you are a woman, you have to put up with pervie men rubbing up against you and touching you, as you can't see which knobber done it. It is difficult to get in or out, etc. All they really need to do is allow people to move around to sit with friends etc to improve the atmosphere that people moan about. However that is not going to fix the poor atmosphere and neither is standing because times have changed and people are not the same as they were. The atmosphere will never be like it was.

Like I said though, the rail seats is a decent halfway house to put in places where people insist on standing.}

Cheers for the in depth reply Ed. Interesting take on it. I mainly go to games at FC United and Chester and am used to standing so when I go to OT and sit I find it almost like sit back and entertain me or not as fan involved but that's just what I am used too. Can understand it not being bear for other fans who are used to and like sitting to watch but nice United have gone half way on it.

{Ed001's Note - I am used to standing as well, but it excludes over 50% of the population.}
