Agree another poor attendance.Its must be deflating for the club that we cant pull in at least 2k with a team who in the main are playing  good football and flying high in the league.Although I,m with you on increasing  the stream price not so sure it would bring in a whole lot more to the games on a Saturday.Seem to be a total apathy from kdy/fife public unless its a local derby/ big game when the cant be bothered,s turn up

What was the attendance given as today? I wasn't there due to illness, but honestly, we don't have a core fan base above 2k anymore. We haven't for quite a while now. Raising the stream prices won't do much. Alot of people still don't want to be in crowded places etc.

Crowd was 1650 and your right, still some folk avoiding crowds. When the streams stop I do think it will increase attendance slightly

Aye, pretty sure crowds are down everywhere. Last two away games: QoS was 980 and Hamilton was 1303... say 100-200 of us for the Dumfries trio, 300-350 for Hamilton

I’d agree, I’d love us to get better home attendances but I’m not sure it’s a realistic proposition. I wasn’t there today, I’m on holiday, but I watched on the stream. I’d be interested to see what the average age of our season ticket holders is. It’s a sad fact of life that more and more young people need to work weekends with their work. I’ve worked the majority of Saturday’s for the last decade - it prevents me from getting a season ticket and from attending most home games. I now do the schedules at work so can pick and choose my games, within reason, as I see fit. I’d far rather choose to give myself weekends off that coincide with away days - I have the Falkirk and Arbroath days off - as it’s such a better use of my time than attending a home game. 
 

im in the market for a Monday - Friday job but they are few and far between if I want to maintain or improve my current salary - I imagine a lot of people, mostly young people, are in the same position.

Its £20 to get in, it’s baltic and we huffed and puffed to a win. 1600 crowd is decent enough.

I wouldn't say there's many more less than pre-pandemic for us. It's frustrating as at times we're a fucking great team to watch. There's far too much of an attitude of distain towards going to games from people in Scotland. Most of the time, you mention about how you support your local team and get a "I'd never do that with mine. They're shite". You'll obviously get people who rule it out with work as Hank Scorpio says, but there's a lot of folk who outright refuse to go. What doesn't help is that the cost creeps up (as does everything with inflation) while the wages for your average person remain the same.

It's not just the side of the crowd it's the lack of atmosphere also. The last few games have been so flat. 

Hard in all seater stadiums though it really is. 4200 at Killie yesterday and it was flat too. 1400 at Gayfield last Saturday and it was just so much better, sounds so cliche but in recent weeks the second half under the lights have been fantastic too. Even coming as an away fan a month or so back as soon as I sat down and we weren’t playing great I just couldn’t be arsed 😂

As someone who lives 40 odd mile from Starks Park these days I'm loving being able to stream the games. Driving a 80 mile round trip, not being able to have a drink and sitting myself in the cold for 2 hours or sitting in my warm house with a beer, with football on laptop and horse racing and sky sprts news on TV in background? It is a no contest really. I agree the price of streams should go up. They should cost the same as tne entrance fee to the ground imo.

Yeah looking forward to getting up there in a couple of weeks. Should be a great atmosphere that day.

Hopefully. Segregation been changed so we get pleash end now and right up the whole sea side terrace. Raith fans will get harbour end up to the corner flag. At the Ayr game a month or so back was a lot of good GIRFUYs in the second half from both sets of fans, both goals in the second half with fans right next to each other. Instead of the half and half it’s been before. 
 

Raith still best team I’ve seen us play made us look hopeless. Kind of hoping for a shite day weather wise in 2 weeks time to be honest because Raith looked very good ball on deck. Shite weather and us launching it up at you seems like it could be useful.
