    Heart of Midlothian
  1. Favourite quirks of Scottish stadiums.

    By the same logic the “Lisbon Lions” Stand at parkhead should be the Heart of Midlothian Stand after a similar event in 1998 We could name the other end the “Hibernian” end to commemorate 1902 and then name the north Stand “Chloe” for shits and giggles
  2. Technically that should be in the “most tin pot things you’ve seen in the League Cup” thread Which would basically encompass the last two decades in their entirety
  3. Offensive Behaviour at Football Act cave in.

    This presupposes that there has been a change in behaviour that can be reverted That’s hardly self evident
  4. Offensive Behaviour at Football Act cave in.

    Errr... Precisely The relatively small proportion of charges under the "Religion" category suggest that in practice this act isn't about sectarian bigoted arseholes but arseholes at the football in general. Veering off, as many are, into discussions on sectarianism in other aspects of West of Scotland society is something of a red herring
  5. The Cricket Thread

    Every time England get things wrong there's calls to change absolutely everything get things right in 4 years time. Just got gubbed in an away ashes series? It's clear that we need the Kookabura ball in county cricket, We should stage Durham vs Lancs in Dubai etc... Made an arse of a tour to the subcontinent? rearrange the whole English game to suit young spinners! Of course nothing gets done because other priorities soon move up the list Except, seemingly, the fall out from the humiliation in the 2015 world cup . The ECB would appear to have made a concerted effort to focus efforts on 2019 and stuck to it.
  6. This Given that it's now back to being a single entity league structure there's no reason not to have divisions one through four
  7. Offensive Behaviour at Football Act cave in.

    Facts and figures on how the act is actually being used which hopefully can help inform debate http://www.gov.scot/Publications/2017/06/7620/4 Although the last reported year is exceptional given that it included the mass pitch invasion and breakdown of public order at the Hibs vs Rangers final Nonetheless to characterise this act as being exclusively about sectarianism and principally targeting the old firm wasn’t correct to begin with and is even less so now The proportion of charges filed under “Religion” has steadily fallen from 40% when the act first appeared to 15%
  8. Attendances - Best in Europe

    Most clubs in Scotland seem to have a fairly flat pricing policy. Maybe the same price throughout or maybe an extra couple of quid for the main Stand compared to behind the goals Hearts vary from £19 to £30 for category B which is a huge variation by Scottish standards But in other bits of Europe the prices are even more spread out. I just checked and tickets for Vitesse Arnhem vs SC Herrenveen are available between €17 and €55
  9. Attendances - Best in Europe

    And child tickets would appear to be included in the UEFA benchmark of average gate revenue per fan As well as corporate tickets, OAPs, Students, Comps etc... Which would explain the figure dipping below £20

    That’s what your mum said
  11. Heart of Midlothian Season 2017/2018

    That’s the kind of honking patter that Hibs boys come up with But somehow you make it work Well done
  12. The Aberdeen Mega-Hyper New Stadium Thread

    But Brechin and Elgin are still OK, right
  13. The Aberdeen Mega-Hyper New Stadium Thread

    Cambuslang, Straiton, Hermiston Gait, Aurora.... I think Dundee May be the only real City in Scotland not to have seen one of these scams
