Arthur is years away from redevelopment so they should refurb it as a matter of priority now. I guess that with the owners who used to sit in the AW having moved to the other side it kind of gets forgotten.

It feels like the Arthur is the forgotten stand. Try going right to the back and you had better hope the ball doesn't go in the air. I would like to know what interim improvements are planned for the Arthur?

The Arthur is a disgrace. An utter disgrace. Everything from the seating, to the sight lines when further back, the serious overcrowding, the toilets.......But I can't see it being sorted without a real overhaul. The bigger joke being that away fans of course pay 'only' £30.

I sat in an almost identical spot for the West Ham game. The view really isn't good enough for a Premier League ground. I have no idea how people right up the back see anything or put up with it either.

The problem is that massive gantry thing filling up about a third of your view.

You wouldn't pay 5quid for that view. Truly is appalling.

The situation in the Arthur and the ground development in general is an area that I am fed up with waiting to be resolved. I don't sit there but I have done and it was appalling in the Championship with 15k, goodness knows what it's like now.

We should be hugely embarrassed to charge anybody £30 for these seats, home or away.

Those seats should be sold at a massive discount with **RESTRICTED VIEW** plastered across the top of them. Embarrassing. Away fans must think its a right dump

I paid 40 odd quid for a seat near the back of the Arthur last season. Couldnt see the other side of the pitch. Piss everywhere in toilets and had to queue nearly 10 minutes. 2 quid for a slightly warm cup of tea. The stand and service is a utter disgrace.

Trouble is some tourists will pay that money not knowing what to expect so the club just take the money.

Part of the blame should be laid at the Premier League/Sky/BT though. They requested all these pathetic structures to be put in place. The cabin in the Holmesdale corner that is only used rarely by BT was meant for Sky who didn't use it once I believe and also displaced quite a few disabled fans.

The small gantry in the middle of the Holmesdale has also meant the HF can't display the banners that they used to because of opposition from the club/council all for a 15 second shot for the lineups at the start of the game.

And that Arthur gantry is the biggest pisstake off them all.
