I think this coming season will be our most difficult so far in the Championship, being our first full season in the Championship, with no more disruptions due to Covid. 

Would expect the 2 teams relegated from the Premiership to be favourites for promotion and play off place which leaves the other 8 teams battling for 6 places to avoid relegation and relegation play offs, so it's going to be a tough season.

Hopefully we will be able to sign, or get a loanee striker in the Jack Hamilton mould and make a better start to the season than we did last season. But again would expect our aim to be an 8th place finish, anything higher will be a bonus. We have shown we are capable of competing in this league and looking forward to see how any new signings will fit into our style of play.

Agree with most of this, but decent goalscoring striker, as we have found out are like hens teeth, got lucky with Hamilton, think we may need to get lucky again

 Don't make many comments on Pie, but glad to see others feel like me about Hammy. Tends to leave wingers too much room, keeps backing off expecting someone else to do the tackling. And prone to the odd push in the back, leading to a penalty.

I’m not getting this weak link stuff on Hammy. He’s been a very good player for us and still has years in him. Each to their own of course.

Always thought Hammy was a confidence player, the better the team played, the better he played, but I always thought he tended to drift inside, leaving space in behind, but certainly more good games for us than bad

I think in the Q&A Mike Caird said it was around 450 the past campaign

That’s some hike in season ticket prices. I do understand the many factors why, and we were probably too cheap before, but over 25% increase for an adult ticket is a very big jump. It won’t stop me buying one but it may stop others.

It's not 25% when you factor in the 4 extra league games.

180/14= £12.86 per league game

250/18= £13.88 per league game

I make that about an 8% increase per game for new season ticket holders

Yes I understand that but it was £180 the season before which was in theory for 18 games. As I said, an increase was inevitable for a multitude of reasons but psychologically it may put a few people off to see such a large increase even though the unit cost per game is only marginally more.

Last year's season ticket price announcement wasn't made until the 27 game schedule had been announced. We knew we were only getting 14 league games for our £180

Is it not only 230 for new season tickets instead of 250??

That makes is about £12.77 a game and is better value per game,

In our debut season in the Championship an Adult Season Ticket was £220, so the season ticket has went up £10 over 2 Seasons.

Whilst £180 for those renewing or £230 for new is a lot of money for some people, if you consider Montrose are charging £240 and East Fife are £245 for League One then it’s pretty good and certainly the cheapest in the Championship by far for those who have announced their prices. (Ayr £260, Killie £350 new / £300 renewing, Partick £360 new / £290 renewing)

I thought it was £180 for season 19-20 so I feel even more of a tit for looking like I was criticising the increase 😄

As i read it, those that paid for season ticket last season will pay the same £180 this season. Those that weren't a season ticket holder last season will pay £230.

Only used adult as example. Quite happy to stand corrected if I have got it completely wrong.

Good news for me as I don’t get up to Arbroath much and I can continue to watch online. I’ll be buying a season ticket.
