This is now becoming a complete farce.  The next 2 home fixtures are against clubs who will bring barely a handful of fans and certainly not enough to require the double parking of coaches on Leppings Lane, which was probably the biggest issue which the report concluded was allegedly causing problems with egress from the ground.  So to ban ticket sales in the North Stand is patently ridiculous.

I have put this on the Luton thread but this is probably more appropriate.

we have to at least try and make our voices heard 

 

sent to SYP police commissioner via his website 

 

Dear Mr Billings
Are you aware of the ridicule and vitriol that is being aimed at SYP as a result of the draconian and senseless actions taken in relation to the free movement of people around the Hillsborough stadium and the banning of the sale of tickets for the North stand?
This is not to mention the ridiculous decision to funnel thousands of fans in one direction onto an open main artery dual carriageway? God knows what will happen at night games on Penistone Road and these actions have CREATED a public safety issue.
As commissioner this is done in your name and you will be one of those held responsible when the inevitable happens.

This needs solving, just reading Hootie's experience, is gut wrenching enough. There will be others with with mobility issues, getting out must be a bloody trauma. Let alone getting in. 

 

I just for the life of me, still can understand why they are driving circa 8k fans from the north out, directly onto a dual carriage way. 

 

Thete must be some form of compromise.

Agreed, in much the same way as if Husband accepts that Wifey takes a condom out on a girls night out with her to save the marriage - its an agreement to a relatively benign action but its pretty obvious where its leading and agreement is essentially condoning something much greater than that initial act.

From a purely personal point of view, my friend and I have season tickets in the North. However, we take my dad or our daughters to several matches over the season. When we do this, we move seats to a nearby part of the North so we can all sit together as we are surrounded by season ticket holders where we sit. 

 

Presumably, now no extra tickets are available, we will have to move to either the kop or upgrade to the South by paying more money every time we want to do this. It's a farce and the club are going to lose lots of casual fans due to this.
