Kop

Recommended Posts

I get it wasn’t the most glamorous of cup ties today, but I just don’t get why the club would not open the Kop and instead have us not kicking towards our own fans at any point during the game. (Bar the sideways passing!)

 

Surely if it meant opening it up, but lowering the ticket prices, then that should happen. It might still only bring the same revenue in, but at least the players wouldn’t be kicking towards a sea of blue seats. 

 

Am I missing something? (Maybe there’s logic) 

 

Side note - fair play to Luton, that was a cracking following!

Probably because the view from the North is better, however I do love the kop.

Stupid idea empty kop. No atmosphere from our fans, and giving them full end created "home" atmosphere for them.

Although the performance was hardly inspiring.

Yet another useless ref also!

Should have been Kop and South

 

Cup games where fans get displaced round the ground always get poor atmosphere

Hillsboroughs atmosphere is rarely anything other than poor anyway, Kop or no Kop

Just gave your post a smiley, then thought actually it's not funny, so you got a positive instead..

I was shocked to see Kop shut - can never remember that having happened in my lifetime tbh. It does not atmosphere psrticularly against s strong Luton following.

it is our home end after all.

Said the same in another thread. Must be strange for the players attacking an empty kop

If we had a Kop with no restricted viewing, it would be open. 

 

Those pillars infuriate me. 

 

Don’t know what you’re on about lol
