It has caused one or two issues as there is a lot of people up there who have either not got reserved seats or have them in other areas of the stand, with space being more limited now the ones with the reserved seats are obviously wanting to use their own to be sure of having a seat, a few have got there to find their own seat already taken and the ones in them have usually been accommodating and moved somewhere else but others haven't meaning there's been exchanges.

Obviously the simple answer is for everyone to sit in their own seats but this would cause the singers to be split up, and i doubt many would want that to happen.

It hasn't been handled very well i don't think, apart from the letters sent out there has been no mention of it on the website/social media and it's just a case of everyone for themselves towards the back now.

Enough space if everyone is separated yeah but folk come up the back to be with the singers. Problem now is there isn't enough in the back rows as the ones who were on the back 4 rows now have to fit in with the ones who were already there making it a bit of a squeeze.

Why not just sit to one side where there's plenty of room for everyone to congregate together.

I'm one of the displaced. I can't say I'm entirely happy as yes it wasn't mentioned before the letters and we've been told to relocate elsewhere yet the same town displaced fans have been rewarded with priority on away tickets. Not much of a reward some would say but still they've been recognised.
Knowing th stadium like I do I went to the ticket office before the Widnes game knowing exactly which seats almost similar to mine were unoccupied only to find these 3 seats on the aisle actually allocated yet they've not been sat in in the years prior but I still couldn't have them. I looked at the scr en of availability and unless I wanted to be near the front or block 4 or block 7 I wouldn't be able to get seats together. So from a prime half way aisle seats to 20 yard seats while all and sundry sit at the top of block 5 and it being pot luck. I took the only half way seats I could which mean me and my lad are separated. Y t those 3 seats still remain empty.
It has become a squeeze up there despite folk saying there's plenty of empty seats but some folk prefer half way to further down.

The problem being wishy that those theee empty seats- and lots of similar ones are seats of those who have moved to sit with the singers - at their request!
A further problem will be when it comes to renewals those who want to book the same seats- even if they never sit in them will get priority. Leaving those who have been displaced to wait to see what's left.
not sure how the club can deal with this- other than upset other fans by denying them the chance to book their usual seats.
Best you can do is go the day after seat renewals are no longer held.

Thing is there's others also vying for those seats. I've said to them that unless it's a bargain price again I can see a few newcomers not renewing so we might be in with a chance.
As for how the club could sort this why not a seat amnesty for those that want to congregate to sing allocating a block towards aisle 29 so that the singers allocated seats are close together easing the confusion of the seats often left empty but are still reserved. It would free up seats on the Middle aisle for the displaced. It would end the free for all that happens now as the last two matches I've seen groups having to constantly move as despite the giants reserved stickers just plonk themselves only to be then moved. One family I saw moved 5 times last match. And it's because there's been the mentality that you can sit where you want .

Because most of us up there have reserved seats, problem is people who don't sitting in reserved seats, this has never been a problem before but now there's 4 rows of displaced fans who still want to sit by their mates/family/singers having to be fitted in.

Surely it's up to the club to sort it out rather than just saying 'move somewhere else'.
