  1. No-one I've spoken to who usually doesn't go has bought any of the games.
  2. I'd imagine zero neutrals but more Hamilton fans than we'd usually get on a Wednesday night. I'm pretty sure they had around 50 fans the night they deservedly beat us at Pittodrie with their fat striker scoring a van Bastenesque volley.
  3. Hopefully they can play some booing and casual racism over the tannoy if that's the case.
  4. Yeah. Although it may be ok using Hedges. I don't think we look as good with him at RWB as he is constantly cutting in. We did score heaps agaonst Hamilton and Ross County with him there though! Leigh can fill that void when fully fit. Unfortunately this injury to Hayes has come too early for him.
  5. The cynic in me would say they are desperate to get fans in the door because the corporate aspect is a major earner for the club. That will be the next stage after fan entry I'd imagine. He'll know his stuff as that's one of the aspects we've done well as a club over the years. Even if the oil industry is on our doorstep. I'm certain we've sold more season tickets than previous seasons and I'd wager we're getting more away tickets sold than usual (ignore the ugly sister games which will be on Sky. That will be a big hit). We also don't have to pay the policing costs etc that we'd usually have to cover on a match day.
  6. Burt would be a strange signing. Especially due to the numbers we have along with a chairman pleading for fan entry to ensure the club's survival etc
  7. Chalk and cheese between those halves of football. Set up the way we did in the second half on Sunday (which I expect we will) and we could be in for a world of pain. Credit to Accies for the second half performance. Were unlucky not to go in at half time with two goals.
  8. Inviting pressure. Accies throwing everyone forward and we're inviting pressure. We clear it to the lone striker who is isolated. Ball just comes back. Pull your head out of your arse Derek.
  9. That goal has been coming. No surprise we've looked woeful since going back to the long ball shite that's been unsuccessful the last two years. How that is a penalty but the one on Saturday wasn't though ..
  10. Comfortable 4-0 Dons win. Ride doesn't seem to know how to park the bus and we're playing good stuff.
  11. Yip, exactly. I went as far as also getting AberDNA to help out where I could. Will be thinking twice next time if we're going to continue going down this route.
  12. A couple of long term injuries and a general lack of confidence. Looks like he's added consistency to his game now.
  13. None. It's all season ticket holders. Another successful event would lead to more chance of getting more fans through the door.
  14. I think it's pretty obvious why they're not letting fans through the door this Saturday/Sunday Al. It's very easy for the council to make these statements. Just like the SNP and labour can do to the government in Westminster. This is the same government who have put many barriers in front of the club previously.
  15. Would rather the club didn't get the council involved in it for tat political shite.
  16. I'm not sure if this is allowed with the current restrictions but if it is then he should absolutely be keeping the third choice keeper Ritchie out after training and practicing his finishing. Hedges played the first chance in with a bit too much power but Wright could have easily put that in with his left. Made it harder using his right.
  17. Greenfield too early. I clicked before getting to the final line.
  18. Correct. Edit. I did say if. I'm more disappointed than anything.
  19. I wouldn't say they were well organised or strong at all. Countless times we couldn't beat the first man and missed three sitters. The kept trying to play out from the back. None of their centre halves seemed to have it in them and neither of their cm's were making it any easier for them. That's a game we should have won but I'm far from bitter. If I'm annoyed it's due to our failure to score guilt edged chances.
  20. At least Hibs drew and Celtic lost. On to the next one.
  21. No excuse for not beating that shite and by the end of the game we were lucky to leave with a point thanks to Joe Lewis. This one was on Wright. Two guilt edged opportunities. Lots of good link up play between Watkins, Hedges and Wright but if neither of them can put the ball in the net then it's mostly for nothing. Players were knackered near the end due to the intense pressing in the first half and it showed. United could be nervously looking over their shoulder by Christmas. Look a much worse team than St Mirren.
