Recommendations to sit

Hi,

Pretty much, my boyfriend is absolutely obsessed with Palace but never gets to see them these days. So for his 21st birthday, one of the things I'll be doing is getting tickets to see a game (I know a contact). I'm more accustomed to Craven Cottage than Selhurst so I'm wondering; where is the best place to sit? Any birthday recommendations for anything else Palace-related would also be appreciated!

Thanks

Nobody going to answer?

I'll have a stab. Holmesdale Upper Tier, best view in English football (in my opinion).

If you and your boyfriend like it a bit more raucous and don't mind standing up, then Holmesdale Lower.

I don't like the Arthur much because the sun makes you squint.

I like the shabbiness of the Main Stand (on the outside at least) but the pillars get in the way.

It must be 30 years since I watched a game in the Whitehorse Lane end.

Main stand is pretty peaceful the few times I've sat there but pillars can be a slight issue, though I've never had too much trouble.

You sound like a nice girlfriend - good work!

Definitely lower or upper Holmesdale I'd say.

Anywhere you can get a ticket these days, which tends to be the Arthur Wait stand. A sort of cattle shed with away fans at one end.

Give it 4 games and there might be an empty seat on the bench.

I can't believe it took seven posts.

You really are an embarrassment.

As for seating, as said before.

Lower Holmesdale for atmosphere, upper for view.

Old/Main stand obstructed views bur not the end of the world, friendly and good bar.
