“Standing areas will only increase hooliganism, and the likelihood of Hillsborough type tragedies.Are we going to have an away standing area as well as a home standing area.As we are seeing an escalation in racism, objects thrown and general misbehaviour, this is not a good idea.For those of us who actually prefer to sit, at least it will remove the most boorish people who usually stand up in the seats anyway into a sepaarte section.”

Have a look at this short film:http://tinyurl.com/cft3c5hAs for a waste of money, safe standing areas at Pride Park will generate MORE cash for the club, not less:http://tinyurl.com/c2b6hcyAs for German fans being more civilised than British fans, the vast majority there are like here, just interested in having a good time at the game. They have their dim-wits as we do however.”
