I see Morton have started work on converting the 'Cowshed', once again away supports will get part of the terracing.
I know its a bit pie in the sky as we don't own the stadium and we have bigger problems with the shambles on the park. But I just wish somehow we could find a way to fund converting the East Stand to terracing with a segregation fence down the middle. What a difference it would make attending home games with a bit of atmosphere again!
<> Morton's idea is a good one - sometimes when the away fans are put in their main stand at the end it's a bit of a squeeze. Bigger supports are put in the Dublin end (behind the goal) but if it's raining it's a disaster over there. In the Cowshed achieves an atmosphere plus dry heads if it pi55es down.
As for ourselves as you say the biggest obstacle is the stadium not being owned by us - it would need to be removeable/replaceable seats for the football and of course concerts. And just how many of our fans would go over there given the present crowds? There's the added costs of stewarding, opening toilets/kiosk at each game etc... I can see where you are coming from but at present TW would probably tell us to move from the far end of the main stand to nearer the away fans in the main stand if we want some atmosphere!
I still recall the days at Broomfield before the seg fence - as shared on here before the most memorable "event" was when we were playing St Johnstone and the OB decided to go for their tea break at half time - got very interesting! <>
