season tickets
« on: May 13, 2019, 11:01:08 AM »
sitting in the JH stand as I do, before the game I started looking around and wondered if the putney end would be able to accomdate all the people from the Riverside.... and then the penny dropped, where will they put the chairman and his failing entourage... and presumably they will come back to the JH where Tommy Trinder used to sit. In which case where will they put the dislodged press and where will they host the pre  and post match and half time tea.

I do hope this does not mean we will be disruppted too. Perhaps they can decamp to the cottage?
Hopwever I have the feeling m,y 60 year tenure in my current seat may be in danger! Maybe that is why there is such a delay because they do not know what to do with the press/directors box.

There was some vague references in the match programme on Sunday by the Chairman which suggested some delay in the progress of the new stand. He promised a full report soon.

My view is that if the demolition team are not working at the Cottage this morning then the project is already running late.

The more you think about all of this the more you think it will be delayed for another season and will eventually mean us moving from the Cottage during construction.

Never got to read the programme as I threw it away in disgust after the game, but rumours are flying around in that we will be playing at Loftus Rd for a season.

FST meeting notes have always said that the club intends to maintain Craven Cottage as our home during the works. Even without the riverside stand, i think the cottage is bigger capacity wise than Loftus Road anyway.

Totally agree it won’t be easy. In fact I would say it would be impossible. Where do the away supporters go if you put the riversides in the Putney end?

If we lose the usual PL cheap seaters that will be 7-8k gone from our 24.5k capacity.

Hammersmith, Stevenage & Putney, (with reduced away fans/game due to lower capacity overall), will do the job imo.
 
Think it could work

ALGO1, I also sit in the JH stand just behind the press box and just like you looked around and thought this is where the Directors and Co will be sitting next season and having been there many years would be very upset at a move. Something you forgot to mention re the central area of the JH stand is that the dugout will probably right in front of the stand and therefore a number of people who now sit in the old Enclosure area will also be asked to move.

The more I think about it, although I don't like it, another move to QPR looks on the cards!

I guess I will but not looking forward to it at all. Last time we were there I went from Cottage terraces to a Loftus Road seat, the Cottage terracing was much more comfortable.

I am on Riverside and if we move to Loftus Road, I will take a membership at best and perhaps will attend more away games than 'home' games ....

To be honest, after I posted I did think about the dugouts but decided that I had depressed myself enough.

I think the whole thing is a ridiculous state of affairs. If they know they want the new stand then at that point it would have seemed prudent to decide how it would happen. The directors could go in the cottage and it is possible the dugouts could remain on the other side with a little imagination... however it just seems to me a ground share is most likely. I think if w would have stayed in the prem we could have gone to  stamford bridge because of its additional size, but in this divison loftus road is more likely.

However, surely a proper statement should have been forthcoming.

The whole thing is a dog’s breakfast. You couldn’t make it up.  If, and it’s a huge if, the development goes ahead then a ground share at QPR would mean I would not renew my season two tickets. I kept them last time and didn’t enjoy the experience.

Good job we got relegated then as it will mean smaller crowds which will allow the redevelopment going ahead with lesser impact

Sorry but someone’s position is surely under threat for this mess up.
The lack of communication is the worst thing , but the fact the stand has been drawn up and redrawn, contractors negotiated etc since 2012 and with the Khans since 2013, without s definitive seating rearrangements or placements defined is absolutely shambolic.

Yes they are dealing with it, but at the detriment to fans for next season.

Obviously something isn’t right. Call it off and do it for definite next summer, with everything sorted

Why don't we move to Griffin Park for a season or two? I'm sure we'd be welcomed with open arms!

I think it has been a glinch in the Riverside development that is taking them longer to sort out.
