 Anyone know what the attendance was? What a difference a winning team makes. As said before, we’re never going to get a great atmosphere at home but all credit to the guys along the end for giving it a go. Pity the enthusiasm doesn’t reach the middle of the stand.
 

When the young kids came along and tried to create an atmosphere the centre stand happy clappers and moaning farts made complaints to the stewards and club etc because their miserable bitter auld farts and the club didn’t help either chasing the kids away

Not quite correct as I saw it. They were initially allowed to do their thing in that area, now known as the family friendly section. I certainly never saw anyone complaining about them. They're may have been some auld farts muttering under their breath but that would have been it. I can't recall the opposition but the match which changed it was when they attempted to sit right next to the taped off section between home and away fans, possibly for some winding up. That was when they were moved by stewards, probably on the instruction of the polis match commander. They then tried to sit behind the away dugout, which would have been interesting, but were again moved by stewards.

At Clitonhill, when the drum tried to play it was shouted down by the young guys behind the goals with a chant of who’s the banker with the drum. Then some older guys who were with them gave a few shouts of [email protected]*% off to Livi!!

It definitely wasn’t centre stand moaners.... although I do sit there, and I hate drums at games...... and Plastic flags being left on seats!

Each to their own though, there’s plenty room in the main stand and if there’s young guys and gals that want to do the Dumbarton thing then more power to them. They’ll find their own place to do it.

Does anything think the club are missing a trick with hospitality? £100 a head (not including vat) for a buffet meal is rather expensive? I go to hospitality at montrose regularly and its £75 a head (not including vat) for a 3 course meal and wine and drinks. Sold out most weekends.

Even with the £10 season ticket discount, the increase in price over the last few seasons is not justified and I'm out.

Yeah agree don’t think it’s value for money really. I know they have to turn a profit but a buffet doesn’t feel value for the cash.

Having listened to the interview with the East Fife manager I have to say that this was one of the most shameful interviews I have heard. Beaten 4-0 and not a single good word about the opposition. Instead he blames it all on the referee saying that the first two goals should not have been allowed. I have watched the highlights several times now and there definitely  was no foul In the lead up to the first goal. With regard to the second goal, Smith definitely was in the penalty box. I could not see from the angle whether he dived or not.

I have to say that if I were the manager of a team who had been beaten so comprehensively I would at least have given the opposition some credit. A disgraceful interview.

Done it a couple of times in the season and it is overpriced for what is on offer. The fact that you are not seated at a meal is a bit of a downer considering the price. This is a no brainer for reducing the price and increasing the volume of customer uptake as their overheads are minimal.

Surely it is more than a buffet meal,  is there not a free bar, half time refreshments and option of drowning your sorrows after the game, which you have just watched from the comfort of an executive box...

Aye,read his report in local paper,never once did he give Airdrie any credit ,on the other hand our manager said that when we got beat 4-1 it flattered us could have been more .Tell it as it was Mr Young you were well and truly beaten ,second to every ball ,.Airdrie played very well first half ,probably the best we have played for a while .

Let him be, if he is believes his own bullshit he will fail to recognise his teams weaknesses and therefore not work to improve them, so they will continue to decline and cease to be a genuine contender.  Shame though, I would have liked to see them take a point off Falkirk.

Great work by the Airdrie Community Trust with their Festive Friends Christmas party in the community today. 

Has the hospitality always been that price for that offer? I've noticed as well we've started charging for the match day mascot which surely must have an affect on uptake?

Was that last year. Just seems a total rip off
