TBV in the West or North

Serious question this one people...

After Saturday there was some really good feedback about being in W block in the west, its a question that has been bugging me all weekend and on this issue I don't know which way to turn do we go back to W Block full time or do we continue to use the North when possible?

I have listed below the pros of each how I see it....

Back in W Block
  • Fans are closer together
  • Helps galvanise the rest of the West Stand as seen on Saturday
  • Less of a headache for the club
  • SAVES the club money
  • Significant reduction in ejections and trouble
  • Permanent home no moving for any match no matter what the size of away following
  • Better match views and facility's IMO

Stay in the North Bank
  • The acoustics are superb
  • Traditional home of SUFC fans dating back
  • Can be well heard by the rest of the ground
  • Having SUFC shooting towards home fans both halves

Whatever the general consensus is I will speak with the club about, at the end of the day we want whats best for the atmosphere at Roots Hall but at the same time we don't want to be costing the club money for no real gain.
