I was outside of the said clique today but what you need to understand being ex-clique is you often can’t hear random chants being started when you’re in the area. In defence of the lads that keep it going up there.Thought it was funny today whenever someone started a chant who isn't in "the drum clique", that entire area refused to join in the chant.
These seats are for wheelchair users - with a few odd full seats for their carer.On the front row there are lots seat backs but no seats,(I’ve no idea of the reason why)I assume you were looking from the IP Stand CB ?
It would appear from that vantage point that they are empty seats.
Makes sense now.These seats are for wheelchair users - with a few odd full seats for their carer.
I would when they keep on saying how many were sold you only had to look at the away end nowhere near capacityIt's not the club's fault if the safety certificate is lower these days than it used to be. The capacity is about 8200 these days but obviously Colchester did not sell all their tickets.
You could easily fit 5000/6000 on the bank, but again if the authorities restrict the numbers what are the club to do.
As someone who was there throughout the dark days i would hardly call nearly 8000 a farce!
It's nothing to do with 'capacity', if we got a few of those Japanese train 'pushers' in we probably could have got several hundred more on the BB and into the away end, but it's to do with how many people the Safety Certificate allows you to have in each stand. There is a formula of people per sg m works out your 'capacity', not how many you can pack in like sardines. Colchester obviously brought far less than the capacity for the areas they were allocated and those empty spaces would have counted against capacity plus, not all the disabled + carer spaces were taken in both home & away ends, so there's another 20 or 30 off your 'capacity', it soon starts adding up. But hey ho, let's not let facts get in the way of a chance to run ECFC down eh?I would when they keep on saying how many were sold you only had to look at the away end nowhere near capacity
The club got it wrong end of
