They're the only club in the football league on the dole. What they think is irrelevant. It's like one of the lazy, work shy swines from Canning Town having the cheek to complain about how shit the NHS is.

Wankers.

Try and use the Sainsburys lorry goods entrance as overspill space (would mean Whitehorse end couldn't use Park Road turnstiles). CPFC already have use of this area because the away team bus parks here.
Never made sense to me to build a shiny new stadium and then have the TV camera's face the Arthur.

If they can make the roof fascia bright, fresh, red and blue stripes, smart square white clock in the centre and fill every seat in the front 10 rows, it'll look fine on tv

I think and hope major crowd safety problems like crushing are unlikely in the Arthur because it's so big and open. But it's pretty poor, and I agree with the West Ham fan's points. Most fans I know prefer to sit anywhere but the Arthur.

The 'auditorium' itself is fine, you won't get crushed in the aisles or the seats. The concourse is a different matter but some fans need to look at their own conduct and subsequently their role in any crushing out there. As do the stewards. You can often enter the turnstiles to be met by three lines of steps filled completely by arse-crack-displaying fat fcks stuffing their faces with burger and booze whilst sat down (picture a 1% demo outside the Bank of England) causing crushing back towards the turnstiles (which is probably what West Ham Wayne was describing).

And since great 2011 swap debacle, it is even worse for home fans than away fans, by orders of magnitude.

Quite .....but for home fans why can the club not put in facilities like food and toilets in a new area behind the old disabled area behind the not used Sky TV boxes..... Massive under used area!

Been in the Arthur for the 15 years I've been going to Palace, it is now a disgrace it hasn't changed. It's awful for us supporters who go week in, week out.

Crush at half time to go to the toilet orngrt a drink. The club should sell less tickets in the stand to make it safe and almost comfortable.

The club has packed more seats in this year along the side fence lower down ....... How does it pass a safety certificate going from the massive side stairs .....to one row wide ( if that ) crossway-walkway to the first back to the front walkway.

Agree - it must be possible for some of this space to be 'pinched' for the Artur Wait - the space is massive!

‘Improvements’ to the Arthur concourse are in the development plans

Nothing detailed yet as far as I can see

I know for a fact that plans were worked on/drawn up around four years ago for a supporters club building for this area ......give us something simple in the meantime Palace!

TBH I've been going in the AW on and off for 40 odd years and I know it's a shithole... but I kind of like it that way. Definitely need more toilets though.

But I like that it's old and knackered and the complete opposite to most of the modern day soulless grounds you get now.

Basic and adequate, very good view of proceedings - that's the main thing.
