    I imagine the directors seats will be among the 810 exec seats?

    Would make sense. So there still about 1000 short of our capacity. I wonder how theyl explain the drop from the expected over 20k.

    They will do their best to avoid explaining it.

    However I think we shouldn't be churlish, when finished Tiny will be one of the best sub 20k stadiums in Scotland. It will be almost as good as Rugby Park for example.

    Surely to allow all of their 400,000 fans a chance to watch the "famous" they should ditch season ticket sales, ban away fans and free up capacity so each fan can see one home game per season.

    Whatever the capacity of the polished turd bowl, it still is the largest bus shelter in the world, ratified I am sure by Guinness Book of World Records.

    Wouldn't it be funny if the capacity was actually smaller than Rugby Park as well...

    A yam on kickback has done a dot count now that the seat plan is out. ---------------- Got my computer to count the dots on eTicketing: Section N Lower: 244 Upper: 898 Section P Lower: 280 Upper: 473 Section Q Lower: 280 Upper: 557 Premium Middle Upper: 225 Section R Lower: 180 Upper: 633 Section S Lower: 280 Upper: 500 Section T Lower: 310 Upper: 898 Total eTicketing dots: 5758 Hospitality is another 810 seats, so that brings the total to 6568. Throw in the other three stands and it is 19,377. Presumably the director seats etc will bring the total to over 20,000. ----------------- Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Quality absolute Quailty Ozy!!

    The hordes will not be happy!

    12 million plus for a single tier stand which will hold less than 20K.

    That a helluva lot of dosh for an extra 2500 seats. BOOM!!

    We won't know the capacity until the jobs complete. Going by where I sat at Saints semi they'll be cramming in extra singles and doubles in any old nook and crannie. The odd stool, bean-bag and pouffe here and there chucked wherever they think those will go for them.

    How many Directors seats are there at ER? Even 500 sounds like quite a lot. Of course they might need more given half the EC will be stuffing their mouies with chips down there every second week.

    Most of the 810 Yam lounge dwellers are allocated seats in the Platinum section . The Sky loungers seem to have separate section behind the directors box.

    Its detailed on the Hearts web page but per usual it is very complex.

    It also quotes prices for season membership of the lounges and goes on to say they will not be available until next January.

    Wonder why they would delay the use of these lounges??

    Money issues I would suggest!!

    Pleasing all the same though!! I wonder when the penny will drop over PBS way?

    Use? They are not first in line to get fitted out. Changing rooms for the teams and toilets for the cave dwellers have to be done first.

    Easily done. Big teams do it. It's not really for the likes of us

    It'll no matter what they're capacity is as they'll still say they're ****hole holds more than the holy ground. They are the scientologists of world football.

    For me it will matter to them and to them big time. Spending all that money to increase the capacity by only a couple of thousand and with a smaller capacity than us.

    Scott Wilson will be spewing following his comments about having a bigger stadium!!

    All very pleasing!!

    When the clown show finally ends and a structure is finally up they will presumably insure it - yes I know it's the poppy thieves - when they do they have to disclose the true capacity for public liability cover at least.

    I'm sure it will leak out but in the end it will be possible to truly count if they ever fit the rest out just add that into what has already been disclosed above. Won't be extra thousands though.

    Didn't know that but not surprised. Any link to his comments.

    He lived in the same neighbourhood as me when I was growing up and I'm sure his hoose was bigger than mine.

    It's just a guestimate but they're right in front of the press seats and I'd say there's about 140-150 seats for directors/sponsors/girlfriends/family/etc.

    In case you didn't know the new stand will have Wifi, and you can get a phone signal.

    Well F me old boots! We really are the wee team. 'Wifi n fone signals n that'! Quite why they (fans) need to get the trumpets and streamers out for that is classic yam behaviour.

    If you can use the wifi to order this chip thing they've discovered then I fear for the rest of Scottish football. We'll never keep up.

    I hear they are going to be the first club in Scotland to take advantage of a Mr Thomas Crapper's new invention the flushing water closet as well.

    Um... our main stand has WiFi (password protected, to be fair) and has done for about six years.

    I think we're in danger of being obsessed about them being obsessed with us.
    Hearts fans that I know aren't bothered about about capacity relative to us. They're just happy to finally have 4 matching stands to form a proper arena.
    Anyway, our bigger ground only gives us kudos if we can regularly sell all our tickets, otherwise it just means we have more unsold seats than them.

    Eh!

    Are the really. I know plenty of yams who all think their new mega stand will bring their capacity beyond ours! When they a usually find out they will not be happy!

    I want us to be better than them in every single way!

    Even when we play them I want to win everything!
