I'd question your eyesight more than the stadium if that's your beef with it. Not denying the entire place could do with a revamp btw. I've stood in the east, west and north stand and nowt wrong with the view - you get a lot more interesting perspectives than at grounds like Wigan, Hull etc.
I will jump for joy when Peter Box is six feet under.

Bit of a myth there dazzle old boy, you might get some sympathy if you actually took enough fans to block their view down that side, but don't let that stop you from having a good old moan.

What absolute tosh chissit- you cannot see the whole field from the side in front of the prefab buildings. The kids definitely can't. They spent most of Friday running up and down to be able to follow play. They used to be allowed to sit on the wall to be able to see better- now they can't. The dugouts are in the way of seeing the top corner- and most of the players and extra staff don't actually sit in the things anyway- instead they stand up in front of them further blocking the view.
Has always been thus.

It isn't best view but you can see most of the middle of the pitch, just not the corners, touchline, dead ball line etc, but it's either that or stand behind the sticks, which although offers the best view of the pitch, is not to mine, and a lot of other people's liking.
It's worse since the dugouts were put there, like Jools says with everyone stood up it makes it even harder to see that side of the pitch.
but like at cas, your right next to the action and you do feel a part of it.

Not at all Durham. I'm a realist.
