That's a bit extreme AP, though it sounds like you were sorely provoked.
yep, never have had so much as a bad word with a steward as far as I can recall for probably 25 years, so was very surprised / annoyed, and his hands are hanging from my rear view mirror in my car as we speak :)

Which block GOG ?, maybe it was the same jobsworth :)
125. Someone was in my seat but I didn't mind and went somewhere else but he wasn't having any of it. Basically laughed in his face when he told me to sit in my allocated seat and told him I had no chance. He said I'll be kicked out if I "laugh or look at him like that again" or if I didn't comply so I went back into the concourse, had another cider before coming back out and standing where I was before. Bet they didn't feel so brave with the Man Utd fans on Sunday.

I was in 125 as well, was he a short stocky older chap ?

As for the seats in the ground ,if you are over 6ft tall it was virtually impossible to sit down due to lack of leg room.
This would suggest in the premier league, supporters must be under 6ft or stand up at games.

Indeed, had more room at Brentford. I was surprised at how narrow the rows were.

I stood the whole time and only briefly sat down at HT. I'm glad the stewards where we were didn't make us sit down as it would have been quite uncomfortable and I just about scrape 6ft.

Might explain why an end that doesn't appear that big can accomodate so many people

One of our number (occasional Exewebber M Earl) ended up being moved to the disabled section as he was too tall for the seats.

Obviously it was much bigger but the anfield road end in itself wasn't particularly impressive. The club have been accused of being unambitious in terms of the new grandstand but I would imagine if it gets built it will be more comfortable to sit in than the Liverpool away end.
