Stands - Chelsea v Liverpool

Do you think it is time for safe standing to return to English football?

We've all been there at a football match, everyone is standing up, supporting the team and singing in unison when the stewards tell you to sit down.

Bang goes the atmosphere, despite everyone standing up for corners, free-kicks and any time the ball goes anywhere near the box.

And despite paying a load of money to go and see your team in England's top flight, you're made to sit still and like a naughty child.

The Football Supporters Federation have been asking since 2002 for safe standing to be introduced back into English football and seen support from the likes of Celtic, Arsene Wenger and Crystal Palace. 

And our pals over at Copa90 have got there own campaign to push to get the FA onside and allow fans to stand, like they can do in Germany's Bundesliga. 

If you've seen any photos or videos of German football, be well aware of Borussia Dortmund's famous 'Yellow Wall' or FC St Pauli's fans creating an incredible atmosphere all because they were stood up. In fact, 25,000 fans stand in the southern terrance at the Wesfalenstadion no problem, but no Premier League club has a section for safe standing.
