Where is your preferred seat when watching Notts?

Recommended Posts

@liampie and, @SteGee got me thinking. Where does everyone prefer to sit when watching Notts?

I've watched Notts in every stand, although the Derek Pavis stand tended to be where I went with my family. Early 2013, I switched to the KOP and, I haven't looked back. Personally, I have found it to be far more friendlier as nobody really talked in the Pavis. It came across as unpleasant at times at times, when more mature fans didn't like my children singing when young.

I wouldn't have been far from @magpiejue, as I sat near the home dugout.

I spent about 7 games in 2016 (I think) in the Family Stand, due to a bad dislocation and, I actually found it more enjoyable than the Pavis. Mind, people do awfully swear a lot and, shout more nonsense than I have ever heard in the KOP.

i sit at the back of the kop, but i have moved a few seats down during last season.

when i can renew my season ticket i will look at getting a more central seat in the mid area if i can.

I used to sit in the Sirrel when I was a kid, it was quite sparsely populated and quiet for the most of it. I then moved to the Kop, it's definitely better for atmosphere, but I just prefer the angle you get watching the game side on as opposed to behind a goal. I don't have a season ticket, but when I go now I tend to get as close to the halfway line as possible in the Pavis.

Meadow Lane End now, never liked the Main Stand or the Spion Kop. My spiritual home will always be Z block, County Road Stand and I suppose I'm now the closest I can get to it!!

I used to sit in Z block, on the side closer to the halfway line. In terms of the perspective I've always preferred watching football from the sidelines, but at Meadow Lane I like the overall experience of the Kop. It's very OTT to have most of the Sirrel stand empty just because of a couple of hundred away fans, but there's no denying that the atmosphere has improved massively since we got the Kop back. It's a fantastic stand.

Post-corona we'll probably start off being dotted around all four stands, so some of us will have the chance to test a new view pretty soon.
