When will we have a review of the need for all-seater stadia? Properly managed standing areas work perfectly well in other countries and the main reason they were brought in was atrocious policing - nothing to do whether or not fans were standing. If the Leppings Lane end was all-seater there would still have been a disaster if they squashed too many people in!

Grrr....

Never.

TPTB, none of whom are interested in Football and if they had ever been to a game would certainly never have been standing, are convinced that terracing kills people.

Add to that the attitude of the Hillsborough "Families" Groups who despite probably not reflecting the views of the average Liverpool supporter, let alone the rest of the Country, will command large amounts of media attention. It will never happen.

Its also not in the interests of the Big Clubs, as they may have to spend money to put terracing in, and then charge less for it, and in any case having seats pretty much allows them to charge what they like for watching.
