On another thread had a chat about people's spots on the Bank. It's amazing we get the choice of terracing still which gives you truly free access to an entire stand that you can change mid game if you so wish. Where's your normal spot? And does it correspond with the old Bank?

I've usually gone pretty central towards the back, good view, good noise and goals look great from directly behind the goal. You don't get full on wind or rain in your face from the sides either... Negatives are it flattens the view of play and you miss out on some of the intricate stuff sometimes. The very back you end up getting crushed so the sweet spot for me is one block down. If I can't get behind the goal at an away game it feels weird and annoys me.

Looking forward to being back there soon :cool:

I stand near the bottom of the heart, and to the left of the goal. Not too great for seeing what's going on at the other end of the pitch. And of course, if you have problems with an idiot standing within earshot and you don't want the hassle of challenging them it's easy to move.

When I rarely get to a home game directly behind goal to the right of the heart when looking down at the pitch. Back in my yoof, cowshed normally towards away end side.

Still stand more or less in the same place on The Big Bank where I did when I first started going. In those days I watched the first half in The Cowshed and then on The Big Bank second half. Don’t know why I get drawn to the same spot after all these years but I expect we all have our favourite spot to watch the beautiful game……
