Will they be made to face the pitch is the more pressing question.

Luton had fans looking like they were closer than I would have imagined in their midweek game too.

Arsenal has them spread out in midweek and it looked odd seeing the same distance between them around the stadium

Fuck me, that’s unbelievable. What’s the point if all 2000 can seat cheek by jowl.

I was assuming that they would be 'socially distanced' in the crowd. ie Each person sat 2m from the next.

Surely that must be a gross misreading of the regulations? Can't be within the rules?

TBF it may be a slightly misleading picture, seen this before where the photo "collapses" distances due to perspective (bamboo can probably explain this). This is from the BBC website from today, clearly shows spacing between fans

That would make sense. The photo I enclosed is from the back of the daily mail if anyone wants to do a comparison

That would also make sense. The Mail have been distorting perspective on the front and back pages for years

No need for me to explain. You were pretty much bang on the money Paul. Even though the "spacing" is evident in the image, it still doesn't look very "social distancey".

Anything on an angle or parallax will generally always make things look closer together. Depth of field is used this way in photography to create interesting and slightly abstract images where you may have an object in focus, in the fore, mid and background. Usually a longer focal length and the angle of inclination will bring about this forced perspective.

Of course, it can also be used in media publications to make celebs look like they were seen out together or for "shocking" stories of fans being too close together. Many lap it up because we live in a fast disposable world, so won't take a moment to have a second look or consider why the image was used. There also is the matter that there will always be a story to be made from any image - which also gives us a reminder of how opinions can be independent or forced depending on how that story is initially led.

Well described Boo and based on that photo they may as well try and get all 2000 in the DRS and no need to open the Town end
