They've only been given two blocks.

Club should stop running scared of trouble and open up Zoo Corner and BPE for online sale. There are only single seats above row F outside of Block 1 already

Starnes really is a Smarmy fcuker ain't he?

"At Liverpool they had restricted view and severely restricted view seats, it's not just something that Argyle have experienced."

Well yes Starnes, but at Anfield you knew in advance you were buying a restricted view ticket!

Just the latest example of Brent's social engineering of a community leisure activity, for which he has no mandate, other than his underwriting role. It's about time these unelected finance/insurance people were shown the door. Reprehensible.

Which begs the question what would be the point in keeping the temp seats in place when most of them wont be used. Exeter arent a big club so naturally their away following is shit.

Plymouth Argyle has apologised to disabled fans after some had their view blocked at last week's FA Cup replay by a temporary stand.

More than 1,800 seats were installed along the Mayflower Terrace, at the foot of Home Park's Grandstand, ahead of the Liverpool clash.

Retaining the temporary seating - hailed by fans for increasing attendance - is a possibility for the Devon Derby against Exeter City on February 11.

But some members of the Plymouth Argyle Disabled Supporters Association (Padsa) say they were unable to see the far touchline.

The club says it has met with Padsa and taken "constructive criticism" on board should the seating remain in place for the clash with Exeter City.

Padsa secretary Steve Helley said: "We turned up on the night not knowing anything about this. We knew there was going to be temporary seating, but we were quite horrified to see that around a third of the pitch was restricted view.

"Some of our members went home in disgust and watched the rest on the TV. Others sat in the stand watching it on their phones."

Mr Helley wants assurances that disabled fans will get a better view at the next home match.

"They are going to have to come up with some ideas," he said. "The ball is firmly back in Argyle's court at the moment, we are waiting to hear what they say."

"We certainly didn't make a profit from it. It was really just to try to get another 2,000 fans in the ground if we could."

Chief executive Martyn Starnes said: "We put the temporary seats in in good faith and it was a cost to the club.

"We did our up-most to make sure our fans could see as much as possible and other agencies checked it with us.

"We felt it would be satisfactory but we knew it wouldn't be perfect.

"At Liverpool they had restricted view and severely restricted view seats, it's not just something that Argyle have experienced.

"Clearly we regret the situation where anybody has not enjoyed the game as much as we would have liked but we have met with the PADSA since.

"The meeting was amicable and the criticism was constructive, which we will take on board for the next game against Exeter.

"We need to explore how we can help the fans to have a less restricted view, one idea is a raised platform so they have a higher sight line."

A final decision as to whether the seats will be in use for next months' Exeter match is not yet confirmed.

Mr Starnes told Herald Sport: "I wouldn't rule anything out but it was hugely expensive to bring the seats in.

Neil Hendy, Labour councillor for Efford, was at the match with his father, former Padsa chairman Barry Hendy.

"This is a clear lack of consideration for the disabled, many of whom were away to Liverpool and then really enjoying the build-up and looking forward to a big game at Home Park," Cllr Hendy said.

"I feel if the temporary seating had been erected elsewhere in the ground, it would have caused a riot if they had restricted their view. How is it justified to inflict this on the disabled supporters?

"I have been involved with the Padsa organisation for several years and hoped they would do more. I feel as a city councillor it is my duty to support the disabled as well as able bodied people."

Yeah it was a strange one. If they were all at ground level a few seats would have had restricted viewing cos of the dugouts, but nowhere near as bad as restricting all of the Lower Mayflower AND the disabled stand.

We shouldn't be surprised though. If there's a fuckup to be had Argyle are sure to find it.

The previous set of temporary seats, were, in my opinion, installed much better. They certainly looked a lot better than this lot.

Maybe, well probably, because it was a rush job!

For fans who can not log in

THE Argyle Ticket Office is in the process of contacting all supporters with memberships, or already-purchased tickets for our Disabled Stand and Mayflower seating, with a view to relocating them to a preferred position within Home Park for our forthcoming Devon Derby against Exeter.

The club is aware that fans in the aforementioned areas had impediments to their view of the pitch when we played Liverpool, and are keen to ensure this situation is not repeated.

We have begun this process to ensure everyone is contacted in sufficient time, so that alternative seats can be arranged for the Exeter match, which takes place at Home Park on Saturday, February 11.
