If only, wasn't the excuse something about them fading over time?

Makes much more sense to use stark white seats to show how empty the place can get during games.

Even with that badge it looks better than the green turnout...

The colour difference between that and the TURF won’t have accentuate the distance to the stands now mind...

How much are the STs for the carpet area ? Well up for one of them, it'd be like QPR away '88 FA cup.
