After a fairly decent set of friendly results AND new manager, just wondering how many will be at ER against st mudden.
I would hope we should see around 14k.

Any1 know how many ST have been sold?

Not heard a peep from Easter Road so I can only assume that they are down on last year.

For selfish reasons I hope it's only about 11k.

Gonna take my 4 year old nephew through for his first game and planning on sitting in the usually empty South Stand section to give a bit of room for running around for when the boredom kicks in.

Dunno what he'll do when I'm running about having fun right enough.

Expect Saturday will be a slightly up on that.

Dunno why :confused:

Our ability to come away with two credible draws against EPL opposition during the last few days should give an air of expectancy going forward to Saturday.

Plus we've only had one pre SPL game at home this season compared to 3 (4 if you include Murrayfield) last season so there will be quite a number of fans who will be seeing Hibs for the first time this season on Saturday.

So much shoddy reporting that you can't believe anything you read unless it's on HIbs.net. Even on the Sky Sports News SPL roundup it shows Wotherspoons goal while claiming we beat Hamilton 2-1. Next clip is Motherwell apparently scoring at Easter Road against St Johnstone. :grr:

TBF, 5,000 was about usual for a home game around that time, even the previous season when we were still in the premier. Late 70's - early 80's was the low point in football attendance generally, and certainly at Hibs.

I'm not sure it has anything to do with journalism rather that all the data appears from a single source i.e. the figure was quoted on most of the online sites. I checked at least 3.

Yep, all the papers including Indy today quoted the 6,350 figure. It's a bit strange that there's 3 different totals though. One possibility is the 13,400 figure was based on Yam/Tic methodology, ie seasons sold plus walk ups & lower figure, 12,300 is actual attendance. Quite possible a lot of people away on holiday at moment.

Scotland on Sunday said 6,500:faf:
Whatever happened to quality Scottish journalism?

That was just the west stand, there were NO empty seats around me at all and the East looked full, with the Famous five pretty much the same plus extras in the south, why would they open the south if there was not a demand for attendance. ???

The point is, 'in the auld days', any worthwhile journo would have taken the trouble to check.

Correct. The 'home' end was basically full....if we can fill it for St Mirren then there is clearly extra demand going untapped for Cat A games at least.

I struggle to understand the 'don't build a stand, build a team' argument as Hibs seem to be capable of filling their three sides of the stadium already...if we were to go on a bit of a run then I think it's clear to see we need extra capacity for the home support. I suppose the South might be able to cover that for non Cat A games but I really think we should just get on with finishing the stadium. Once it's done it's done and then full focus and all revenue can and will be directed to the team to ensure we do use the extra spaces generated.
