Just when are sheff actually going to drop points, its getting bloody anoying,we go up one and down one,who cracks first,cant see us catching any one else but Wednesday,still points to play for but the pressure is mounting, we have to stop leaking goals to crap teams, we got away with it against Burton, and last night,almost dropped two points,thanks to a defence that is getting gung -ho. We have to get tighter when playing the better teams because we may not get the chance of scoring to many goals . How ever well done 3 points again,heart in mouth time,what chance 3 in a row? PS good day to my chum MST.
JT would fit the bill coyw

PS for MST.reading a post further down you said I could not have sat in J/H sand since 2006 as no drums and no wooden seats are in there, think that's what you said, well last time !def last time!,i sat in there was a cup game against Blackpool, Tom ince played think we won 1-0 or had replay cap game,long after 2006 and we sat in wooden seats, and there were drummers, 3 drunks one large drum, who had about 30 minute half time break,for guess what? up by the tunnel, high up . Just thought I would mention it .

Bishop, All, we may have to accept the fact that most of the times we start to play better when we lose a goal or concede an equaliser. If you look back to all the games we won or draw in the past months, most of them we come from behind. When we take the lead, e.g. to Brighton, we are more likely to lose! I know the logic is completely wrong but that is a fact!! So I don't care if means we have a better chance of winning...but I agree, we need better organisation at the back.

Read my post again Bish; I never wrote there were no wooden seats so don't know where you got that from.

For Bishop - apologies to everyone else. Also Bishop, I always thought you were George South now you have just admitted it in your post above....
season ticket recently returned to London and attended match at Wigan, tickets bought for Forest game and intention for many more, and likely to book season ticket for myself and son next season. Hoping for advice on which stand to book for season ticket, in past always at Johnny Haynes stand but at Saturday's game tried for Riverside, never been a holder before wondering what opinion is... Also: cannot seem to find pricing for 18-21 youths to know better pricing next year for both of us depending on the stand chosen. Much thanks, COYW
Best atmosphere in in the Hammy end but it depends on what your looking for, view is good from H3 - H 6 from most rows but I think its best from Row H and above the tickets are also cheaper than the JH and Riverside.

Thanks for the reply, have on occasion sat in Hammersmith but always too low down, bad view of the game, does the view compare to JH or Riverside at all if high enough? Would enjoy the atmosphere more, but worried about not getting the best footballing view

Watching from behind a goal is totally different from the side and takes a little getting use to but the higher up you are the better, if you are use to a side view then I would go for Riverside which has less atmosphere and is more expensive but has better seating than the JH

JH seating is fine and identical to Riverside if you sit in the new seats that are situated where the enclosure used to be. I sit in block EL row EE which is still well covered but three or four rows nearer the pitch you will get wet when it rains. I've sat there since we moved back from Loftus Road and remain there because I have made friends with people around me but given the choice now, I would move further back to say row BB. EL is pretty close to the half way line by the way.

great, thanks for the responses guys! Any tip on the pricing at all for the different stands? Am now currently thinking trialling sitting further back in Hammersmith before making a decision

you forgot to say the J-H stand is like sitting in a cow shed,seats that could have come from the ark,drunk drummers,go for the Riverside so much more Fulhamish better looking all round.

George you clearly haven't sat there for years!! There are 20 rows of plastic seats in front of the wooden ones (where I sit) now and I can assure you the atmosphere in the Stevenage Road stand is a lot, lot better than the library that is the Riverside;-))

Not were I sat it was not,near to the tunnel towards the top all wood, birds crap every were, 3 drunks at the back banging a drum ,first and last time for my group in that section.

As for atmosphere it debatable, managers have complained over the years it don't excist at the cottage,never noticed it In J-H stand, must have been the drumming, Krupa they aint.

Spent a couple of years in JH, but too many miserable and negative folks. Some of the language was truly foul, racism and sexism still alive and kickin' in JH. To make matters worse, the wooden seats were awful, hardly any leg room, I'd end up with welts in my shins. Have also sat in Riverside, an atmosphere-free zone. Now in the Hammy End, much more atmos, and fans a lot more positive - and a heck of a lot cheaper.

The Riverside has the best view but the moaning annoy's. Johnny Haynes also good and has the most food places and toilets but has the Sun in your eyes in the arvo, also lots of uprights which is in your view. Hammy good view from behind goal.

Sorry Baccus MST don't agree with you but wont say it,he did remind me I cant have been for a long while ,glad you reminded him.

I agree with the moaning Minnie's in the JH but you get them in all parts of the ground I would guess.
Also agree about the sun but only before the clocks go back and lunchtime kick-offs - clappers make excellent sun shields;-).
Haven't seen or heard a drum in the JH since the '90's.
Don't use the toilet after first entering the ground and never buy food or drink so neither for or against that.
You have to believe me when I say that I DO NOT sit in a wooden seat, it is plastic like the rest of the stadium and that's a fact. If you don't know that then you could not have sat in that stand since before we moved back to CC which was around 2006 I believe.
Each to his own I guess. I like sitting in the centre of the pitch and the atmosphere is definitely far better than the Riverside. The wooden seats are still there but there are half as many plastic seats now.
