Owen Coyle it was, who was supposed to have suggested that part of the Cricket Field Stand should be open to home fans so the teams would come out to the sound mainly of Burnley fans rather than the travelling contingent.
That would be good motivation for our lads it was felt just before kick-off and at half-time.
Last season of course, with demand for tickets high following our first season in the Premier League and our first in the top flight for 33 years, it was decided to do just that and because of the overspill house some of our fans in the Cricket Field End. They occupied the end nearest the James Hargreaves Stand and thus those seats also behind the tunnel where the teams currently come out.
A large number of fans took up the offer and the atmosphere generated by the Burnley section in the Cricket Field end added to the 'Fortress Turf Moor' effect especially in the first part of the season until our form deteriorated following Coyle's departure.
However the club have since announced on the Official Site:
'Supporters are made aware that season ticket sales are currently suspended for the David Fishwick (Cricket Field) stand, pending a final decision from the board of directors.
'Should home fans not occupy this stand in the 2010/11 campaign, a free upgrade will be offered to those who have already renewed."
Season tickets were on sale in the David Fishwick Stand for £348 before the Early Bird deadline at the end of March compared to up to £426 in the Bob Lord and James Hargreaves stands.
However only about 300 fans appear to have taken up the offer leading the club to question it's continued viability.
