Mine was a senior chap £12.00 yesterday and with an electronic QR code entrance so who knows what will happen if we go back to cash? I suspect ours will be up from last years £10/16.00 going by the average cost of the season tickets per game. I think I paid £153.00 for a reserved seat last season so that's already a hefty increase to £195.00  Of course I was willing to pay it just to get out on a Saturday again but I can see a negative reaction on the horizon.

It's true everybody is in favour of Equality until it costs them money....

 

My personal opinion is it should be one price for all, be it 14 quid a ticket,  a seat is a seat etc..

I can see the point of equality as well and I would have no problem paying the same as other adults. I would hope that age benefit would be extended to youngsters mind you. There used to be a long argument about the "buroo" gate back in the day.

Any further info? Just going for that smug ITK vibe? Absolutely can't stand posts like this.

Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

On one hand people are moaning because of the lack of info but the second anyone puts their head above the parapet with any snippets of info they have heard they get shot down for being “ITK.”

It’s no wonder so many folk have stopped using this page.

You are joking right? 

It's not the information, it's the way it's disseminated.  The total "I know something you all don't" crap. I doubt deals at our level are falling apart because someone has written the sentence "I've been told robert has signed for Burnley after his trial and theres a fee"

How do you want info to be released, clubs won't say until deals are done,   if we get a whisper of interesting news or gossip....  That's gold for a football supporter.....

 

That's what football is all about ffs,   the Pre or post match discussions are far better than the 90 minutes..

While I agree, there's ways and means. The way Ayr Diamond does it is the merest crumbs and it's done that way completely intentionally. It's like that fat, annoying lassie you went to school with on Facebook posting "I'm absolutely raging" and then when asked why by someone, replies "I'll DM you". That's your equivalency.

Interesting article on DTV (notITK).  Ian Murray's post match interview states he hoped to have a couple of new players in the next 2 or 3 days,  and confident that we will have a full squad for the Montrose game in a fortnight..

 

as stated previously with a striker proposed to come in today,   Yes I would take one, but think another midfielder and  right winger are more priority,    also hopefully if we can get enough cover then we can send Ritchie out on loan, no offence to the guy but he is 2 yards too slow for this level and is clearly not trusted or rated by Murray..

Honestly, I'd rather have a good rumor than nothing, even if its ends up being mince about west ham strikers, because it gives something to look at/talk about/have a moan at if nothing else.

Adarkwa signed for QPR the other day, so I think we can rule him getting unveiled later today. 😄

He’s stuck at Chiswick Roundabout with the West Ham striker. 
 

Scenes when it’s Jack McKay.

Extended trial is a load of crap. Either sign him or don't rather than leave us in limbo.

I genuinely think this story is a load of nonsense. Absolute spin Doctor stuff from agents etc trying to get him a deal elsewhere. He hardly set the world on fire with us. Celtic didn't see enough to sigh him and I cannot buy for one second that Burnley would sign him. He's not good enough. End of. Just my humble opinion of course. 

As for this striker we are supposed to be signing, it's not unexpected at all. We are still short up front from last seasons numbers.

I thought he would have been OK at our level , worth another season at least. But agree it's probably just paper talk stoked up by his agent.
