  1. Weather/wind will play its part today. Whoever takes advantage of it will go through I think.
  2. TV money more than makes up for anything lost at the gate. Home crowd/advantage will be needed I think. Very tough tie.
  3. That’s a belter. Our worst league crowd is still 300 more than your best crowd [emoji23]
  4. 2,800 home tickets sold by last night. Some may be waiting for a couple of hundred SS tickets to be released on Thursday night however at the current rate of sales, doubt we’ll sell anymore than 4,000 which would give us a 6,000 crowd plus TV money. Not too bad but expected a few more sold by now. Maybe being live on BBC is a factor after all... On the game, can’t risk Durnan & Buchanan on their own so would definitely have some protection in there, Gary Miller maybe.

  6. Not quite, club had already reserved those first couple of front row seats prior to Thursday morning. Would assume they are for club use on the night. I know for previous TV games they have had a pipe band in etc and always sat them over in that section.
  7. So I’m right then? If 4200 is the paying figure versus Dumbarton but 3800 are physically in the stadium, then 4200 is the attendance. I’d be shocked however if hundreds of ST holders don’t turn up on a fortnightly basis.
  8. Don’t understand the calls for giving Hearts more than the NS. Based on previous matches with the ugly sisters, us selling out the SS & 1/2 of the WS would only give us around 3,900 tickets. We’ve had that in versus Dumbarton, never mind a high profile cup tie. Will we sell out almost 6000 tickets? Unlikely but would wager we’ll have a good go at it and as someone said above, 4500-5000 home fans wouldn’t be a shock. Any money “lost” by not selling an extra 1000 seats will be made back by the TV money. Home support advantage could be a big help on the night.
  9. Linlithgow Rose selling tickets today for the home end.....just saying.
  10. Hospitality, post match, always hinges on the 90mins that’s been witnessed. Will either be a continuation of a good day out or as you’ve said, you’re desperate to hit the town centre pubs. Disagree that for the ordinary fan, hospitality is best avoided. I’ve had some brilliant days in hospitality as I’ve been with my mates, ie like minded people. We are booked in a box for the Raith game in December and have no doubt it’ll be a good afternoon with the guys. I’ve also attended when I’ve been invited by a company or a sponsor. It’s not the same, as you may not be surrounded by supporters, but would say the quality of the day is still very good. As you say though, the down side is some may only be there to be sociable and as such, the passion levels for the game are a pretty slim.
  11. The Clyde punters are doing some whining here aren’t they. Play with the big boys and you pay big boy prices.
  12. Enjoy your big day out. One to tell the grandkids.
  13. 3-1 home win. Sammon, Longridge & McManus. Att; 4,000.
