This,in a microcosm reflects Europe on a grander scale, autocratic, unanswerable, undemocratic. AND THIS IS NOT ECO-FRIENDLY!!!

I went to Selhurst Park a number of years ago and saw woodwen chairs, thought how fantastic the history in them, shame to see what our forefathers history disappear from the game.

If they have to change all wooden seats its more than 2000.
It's 3000 in Bob Lord and 5000 in CF.
Lets say at a cost of 20quid a seat with fitting etc and labour.
That's gonna be a lot of money.
Presumably its fire regulations...
But we all know what happens when plastic burns

Supply all the away fans with a plastic cushion
at 2 quid a go, refundable if returned undamaged
at the end of the game.We will make a few quid at the same time.

The wooden seats look a lot heavier than plastic ones and the metal fixings look like solid iron, think the ruling is more to do with missile throwing than fire regs. I’m sure security will search all fans to prevent flares from being brought into the ground.
Remember England fans ripping up Lansdowne Road many years ago, sure they were wooden chairs, but I’ve also seen mass ‘frisbee’ throwing at matches on YouTube, pity some fans can’t behave themselves.
