For many years as a youngster, I enjoyed watching Fulham from the Hammersmith End terraces. It was a throwback to the good old days.

Of course, when we were promoted to the Premier League, the terraces were living on borrowed time. The Taylor Report – to my mind a terrible over-reaction to the tragic events at Hillsborough twenty years ago – outlawed terraces at top-flight football.

But, for many years now, a campaign has been underway to reintroduce safe standing, along the lines of the German model, back to English football. The FSF have been vocal in their support, Everton have said they would consider it and a number of MPs have signed an Early Day Motion supporting it. This article has the story in fascinating detail.
