    Away fans don' seem to struggle to make a noise in that stand when it has been handed over in full for previous cup games , we have the wrong type of match going fans to make an atmosphere, not the wrong type of stadium.

    I think a North Stand like this is more likely/feasible in our stadium, although a replica of the South Stand is even more likely.

    i remember reading on here that a single tier was possible. can't remember who posted it though. a two tired option would be good. but id have a big lower tier and smaller second tier.

    i hope not. it would be a complete waste imo. we'd have the exact same problems we have now - no home end, broken up tiers.

    Think its the lower tier thats the problem being below ground level any change would need to be built up from the bottom reqiuiring closure, where a bigger second tier can be built behind like the south stand was.
    Sure somebody that knows about engineering a stand will be along to put me right though.

    That's because there are 1700 away fans in the SSC 3rd tier who want to sing.

    If 2000 City fans in SS level 1 sang together on a regular basis, it would sound superb.

    All you need to do is Google Bayern fans at home.

    1 lower tier behind the goal that constantly sings and get's behind the team.

    Bayern roughly have the same stadium layout

    But yes, our fans certainly need to up their game.

    I was referring to the occasions in the cup when we have handed over the entire stand , those fans had no issue creating an atmosphere in there

    When 3000 away fans fill the away end, they create an atmosphere. Especially when the 3rd tier of the away end is full.

    My point is, when you have 100's and 1000's of fans who want to sing, no matter where you put them in a stadium, they will always create an atmosphere.

    Hence why we need a proper and dedicated singing section, where 1-2 blocks, roughly 500-1000 fans can sing and create an atmosphere together.
