I said in the first half that the Annan #11 looked decent, have now discovered that he is former "mini Messi" Chris Johnston. Glad to see my eye for a pler remains intact.

Some lad in front of me screamed "AWAY BACK TAE MIDDLE EARTH FRODO" at him and that made my day.

We've successfully limped through the group despite that minter on Wednesday - so I guess that was the only objective. There was no dramatic improvement today against the lowest ranked team in the group but we looked solid and always in control.

Donnelly getting 90 mins is probably the biggest positive out of the game today and I thought Amaluzor settled into a decent first start, even if I detect a hint of the Seedorf's about him (and he should have had a 2nd obviously)

Two things worth the admission money - Van Veen getting booked for launching it into the press box and Ricky Lamie looking a class above his opponents.

Maybe we can send him and Lawless on a quest.

Any excuse to re-post this one...

I've just about stopped laughing at Van Veen leathering the ball into the POD for no reason.

He seems to get very frustrated very easily. I think he goes down a bit too easy anaw.

Van Veen is going to go about 10 games without scoring and break his duck by lobbing someone from about 40 yards

*glances nervously at Zander Clark*

Noticed on the email about hibs tickets that they anticipate we will be in our normal season tickets stand for the match, what’s happening with the south stand, away fans coming?

As @santheman said, I believe they are expecting around 2000 to 2500 max for away fans in the coming months. Don't know if that will apply to the hibs game as it is so close but the next home game is against Dundee at the end of August (assuming no home game in the League Cup).

 

Also of note, the Main stand is getting redone next summer with all the wooden and pod seats being replaced with actual seats similar to the rest of the stadium. Also they plan to get rid of a portion of the wee garden and build an extention/additional support for the disabled area. They had planned for some of it to happen before the season started but it took to long. The dressing rooms have been upgraded/changed to be more suitable as a professional football club.

2,000 away out of 4,500???
Surely we have enough to take up at least 3,000 tickets for our first home league game, poor if not.

Will the main stand be fully open next week? If not are they planning on splitting the south stand for home/away?

Confirmed by the horse's mouth today that it will apply to the Hibs game all going well with no last minute hitches.

Burrows' reply guys are generally a mess but he addressed that point here.

I’m guessing it’s easier to get bigger numbers now. If Airdrie was anything to go by anyway as it was pretty much sit wherever you want with very little distancing.

Stands to reason that by going to 1m we can get double in easily in each stand plus the main can be used in full again judging by the fact the players were back at the dugout again.

Unless you were put In the South Upper and the security kept pestering people to move even if they were only 1 seat to the left or right.....

Very happy to hear that, the club are very good towards the disabled fanbase.
