    Evening all. I've just purchased 2 tickets in block a north stand upper for the Everton game. I've never sat there before and they say they are restricted view seats. Can anybody tell me how restricted they are? Cheers.

    I don't think so Rev, I think that they are restricted because of one of the bl00dy great pillars holding up the roof of the East stand, which will obscure the Park Lane goal area. I think that Spurs only define restricted view seats as those which are in line of sight of one of the goals, so imo markyboy will have to do a lot of jumping around once the ball gets near Park Lane.

    Nah, I've sat in restricted view before near east meeting Paxton and just had a skinny pole in my way when looking left. Not saying it won't be a fat pillar but you might be alright.

    North Stand Upper having restricted viewing?
    Are you sure the tickets aren't for the East Stand Upper?
    That's where the pillars are and even there the view isn't that restricted unless you're nose-to-nose with it.
    There shouldn't be anything in your way on the North Stand unless you're right at the top where the roof [and dust] is.
    The only thing you may be restricted in viewing is the Jumbotron.

    I think if you go on the club website there is a virtual stadium view that you can use to check out the view from pretty much anywhere. I seem to recall this anyway.

    guys, i didn't want to start a new thread, but i'm going to buy tickets tomorrow for the FA cup game, where would be good to sit? I haven't been to the lane for 12 years and only being 23 now, i have no clue where is good to sit and where is not?

    I want more the atmosphere than what kind of view im going to get, (i don't want restricted view seats)

    I hear Park Lane end is the ebst but will that still be the case for this FA cup game? and what are the chances of a non-member getting two seats down there?

    cheers guys

    Park Lane is always the best place to sit..

    Shouldn't be too difficult getting two seats there.

    I've bought restricted view seats in the East Stand before and didn't find the viewing quality much different to the normal seating in the North and West Stands.

    On the whole, I favour the upper north, but I'll take restricted view if the price is good.
