    I know it’s been discussed to death but…. Knock the west stand down but retain the lower tier seating. The two aren’t connected anyway.

    put some portaloos and a couple of burger vans on the back by wall and hey presto you are away.3000 odd seats back in use

    if you are feeling flush knock a pre fabric roof up quickly.

    The problem with that is it's too simple and the common sense thing to do. I still think there's more to the north side of the west stand than portaloo issues. I don't think a reason's ever been given by the club has it for why they don't use it? If the reason is that there's no call for it as we don't get enough fans, I'd say do what you are saying, put the away fans in there, put a tin roof on it, and have home fans in the north. I find it a bit farcical that the north end of the East stand is off limits too - especially since the North has got smaller in allocation. As for stewards, just stretch them across the bottom of the north for now and house home fans in there and have segregation. The majority of fans don't want to invade the pitch or fight, so how many additional stewards do we need if the west stand is now not in use? Another 3 perhaps, to go with those stewards that would normally be in the West stand? I really think the whole thing has been overthought and is easily resolved.
