Does anybody know what is happening regarding the Cricket Field Stand after the Fulham game, is it to stay open to home supporters.

Yes there is a further four game package for 60 (15 per game)

I don't know any more but I can see it being open for the remainder of the season with the potential exception of the Leeds & Blackburn games.

I'm surprised they haven't let PNE use the full stand as it's a while since they played us and would have likely sold out their allocation. From a financial viewpoint it must be better for PNE to pay 28 each for 4000 seats than for just 2000 - with us selling 1000-1500 remaining seats at 15 each.

We are rich and dont need the money.

Our lowest home support (excluding away fans) is 14,232 against Brentford and the highest being 15,870 vs Bolton, if we continue to win games then it will be proved to be the correct decision as i'd expect a crowd of 19,000+ against PNE, possibly touching 20,000 if this CFS multi ticket is a massive success.

Including the PNE game in the multi ticket is a very smart move as i think the uptake will be much greater than if it wasn't.

Again hats off to Mr Baldwin

Those thinking North End would shift 4000 would possibly be in for a shock as well if they had all the stand. Around 2500 will be plenty for them.

I think they'd sell 2,500 but the upper limit would be 3,000 unless their form drastically improved, which kind of proves the decision to split the CFS is the correct one.

They have home games against Bolton and Blackburn but this is the first big away trip of the season for them, if the team isn't winning it will make no difference.

I would certainly hope that we will be in that stand when we play the horse supporters. The noise we will generate against them, and the liklihood of a huge home support should preclude them being in there! Every chance we can give ourselves we should. I want to humiliate them, out sing, out play, intimidate them. Our players should not have to walk towards the uglys! Another 1,000 seats for Burnley supporters on that day please BFC!!!
That simply is a no brainer..
I work quite a few weekends but have bought the Fishwick flexi, it represents great value and great initiative from the club.

There was a bit of trouble in that stand when we played Rovers in the PL 5 years ago if memory serves and I imagine the police will have that in mind when they decide whether or not to allow home fans in there for the return game.

28-10-2015, 04:14 PM
I just can't see us being in there for the Rovers game

28-10-2015, 04:33 PM
I think the first thing to do is ensure that Burnley fans are in there up to the Blackburn game and see what happens then.

One thing is certain, those who are going in are very positive about it and their views are very much the most important.

"There was a bit of trouble in that stand when we played Rovers in the PL 5 years ago if memory serves and I imagine the police will have that in mind when they decide whether or not to allow home fans in there for the return game"

Let's get one thing straIght- the only bother there has ever been in the CFS since it was first "reopened" was when Lancashires finest took it upon themselves to smash a few skulls with their batons when fans were slow at leaving after the Blackburn game. Absolutely disgraceful.

Same game where rovers fans were allowed bottles of beer in the stand?!? I understand the concourse probably did get tight, but to make them arrive so early and then allow them to drink as much as they wanted in the stand (leaving bottles of beer in the stand) was not clever. There's also a much better and proper divison between the two sets of fans, and the door underneath has been seriously downsized and wouldn't present the opportunity to whoever to open it again.

The police tried to cover their aggression by starting a manhunt for some fans, who were arrested and interviewed for swearing! Surprise surprise none charged.

I don't think they should open the stand for that game.

For the first time in years, I went in the CFS stand v Notlob. I personally thought the atmosphere was superb, and could well be influential in games against the likes of R*v*rs, PNE and dirty leeds. I wish the great unwashed would sit down occasionally though. >:)

The 2010 incident was this, where i believe fans were goading each other and police decided to use heavy tactics to get the Burnley fans to leave.

Correct or not you decide. - view external link (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqPz-xd94z0)

Presumably the same was happening to the Rovers fans at the other side of the segregation?
