While possibly unpopular to those who (myself included) who like to swap ends based on where we’re attacking, my logic is that you keep anyone generating atmosphere in the JC for the whole game.

I’d possibly consider making entry on the Pop side a pound or two cheaper as well. More options for fans and people we’re trying to attract.
To be honest you dont even need a millionaire owner to do that, its already ready to be put in place if the club wanted to take that route as all you simply need to do is close the get next to the bar and then the gate next to the left of jack carr stand as i remember it being in place when we played tranmere.

The only issue that comes with that is accessibility to food and drinks, with current losses I wouldnt think it would be a smart business move until we start playing well and getting gates of 1.100+ avg everygame again (except tuesday nights).

Rather than move stands, dugouts etc - next season how about widening the pitch by 6/7 yards so that the Pop Side is actually pitch side?
A good idea that should be implemented asap…it’s not worked in the any of the Watson years from 2018 onwards has it? 🙈🙈

It could definitely work. Doubt planning would be an issue either.

But I'd love to see a lift/ a ramp, you've probably got the space to have a gentle gradient ramp on either side. Take some seats out the front and have elevated disabled viewing section as opposed to the token bus shelter in the away end.

This would be great. I suspect there would be a little funding available somewhere too to help towards the costs.

Maybe moving those big blue bins would help too.
