Gaps? Not where I was. Also people standing on the yellow lines.
Hard to see how any more could have fitted in.
‘Not where I was’, which was presumably on the bank, and also presumably towards the middle? Which means you couldn’t see the edges, which invariably are sparsely populated.

Three similar fouls down the back of Achilles on Jevani, Josh and Tim
not a single one given and of course the one on Tim let to the second goal.
On the whole I thought Ipswich were effective and fair but strong tacklers, but the three tackles you mentioned looked to be deliberate attempts to inflict injury. Not a coincidence that they all happened after the ball had been played and the ref was presumably focusing on where the ball was going.

I was nearer to the Stadium Way part of the Bank and there was plenty of space. I wonder if the 10% reduction the club has made is a figure set by officialdom or if we decided on the figure? If there is any leeway could he figure be dropped by a few percent? Also has the club reduced capacity in all stands or just on the Bank?

To paraphrase again what Justin Quick told the Trust AGM, the Club recognise that if we are to regualarly have crowds of 6,500 plus the Club need to invest in staff and infrastructure to support those numbers. They are clearly not there yet.

It is however difficult logistically in that people arrive at the ground very late, rush to the bars etc at half time, and on both occasions all want excellent, cheap food and drink immediately. We need to learn a trick or two from how theatres and rock gigs organise interval drinks etc.

I was at the other end. I may be a boring old fart these days but I wouldn't want any more in there.
