Emailed the club yesterday asking about moving our season ticket seats for next season, not hoping for much luck but thought it was worth a shot anyway. Got a response this morning saying that the best option is to renew my current seat and then when the renewal period closes, information will be sent out to season ticket holders explaining the process on how to relocate and how to go about it! So it looks like they are going to be open to moving seats in the summer which can only be good news and hopefully help with the atmosphere etc
They just want your money first. They really dont want to start moving people around.

I'm a Cockney Malteser
I think what we forget is that the stadium is designed so the noise travels to the pitch

I sat for one game right near the touchline in the east stand and the atmosphere generated from the south stand is much louder there than if you are actually sat in it (I'm in block 322 normally - so near/where the songs normally seem to start from)
Agree, as I thought we were quite loud on Wednesday and I was standing in row 6.
 
As usual I was in 256 Wednesday evening and the atmosphere was a lot better.Plenty of faces I haven’t seen before ( odd you would think for a big CL night) Whoever the newcomers were I wish they were there every game.

Just looking through the Destination Tottenham book.
In picture of the South Stand in the game vs EFC (was 1-0 at the time) i can see myself (with the help of a magnifying glass).
Everyone else around me is sitting down, im standing up, arms open wide giving it large.

Silly old sod.

I don't know if a link has been posted but I just watched the Richard Hammond show so thought I'd share. I didn't know the H Club transformed into an NFL TV studio/commentary box for the Handegg games.
Some interesting bits in here...

Yes mate. Watched that. There was nothing earth shattering but was interesting and I really enjoyed it.

I've seen myself in a few photographs in the match day programme.
The pics were taken at:
Home to Chelsea - Aug '78
Away to Villa - March '79
Away to Coventry March '89
 

Select Car Leasing, using road safety campaigner’s THINK! crash map, analysed the before and after data to see how a landmark can have an impact on car accidents in the surrounding area.

Counting the numbers of accidents on Tottenham High Road, Northumberland Park and Worcester Avenue before and after construction began in 2015, their study found that there had been a 39% rise.

There was a total of 17 accidents (8.5 per year) in 2013 and 2014 before they broke ground, with that figure rising to 47 accidents (11.8 per year) between 2015 and 2018.

Figures are believed to have risen due to people trying to get a glimpse of the new place during its construction.

Not quite the same thing but I've definitely noticed an increase in people driving like complete pricks after the match. Generally locals frustrated at the people flow and road closures. Area around Bruce Grove especially bad, matter of time before some pedestrians get injured in my opinion.

Probably the "boy racers", some with back firing motors.
Been an upsurge of them in recent years, usually of mediterranean appearance.
Many are from enfield/edmonton sides i've been told.

They're wankers. :dembelefingers:
