    I can see a "you're not very big" chant becoming fashionable at our next visit to Tineycastle.


    That would really annoy them.

    They've just released for sale "Premium Seat" season tickets in the middle of the main stand.
    695, wider seats, one invite to the Directors' suite per season.

    The 810 were seats that gave access to their various lounges and cost 1500 - 2500.

    They only get platinum grade seats amongst the plebs.

    I take it these plusher seats will be about the same width as our standard seats?

    Required because of the availability of chips, perhaps?

    Premium Seats.

    Why does that make me think of their Upper and Lower Tier seats... in a Single Tier stand.

    The size thing will hurt them badly as a support.

    Not from the drawings I saw when the thing was proposed. The Upper Tier is currently under construction. The Lower Tier can only start when the old Main Stand is demolished/falls down.

    It may appear to be a single tier but it is being constructed as two tiers.

THEY SING ABOUT BEING THEE WEE TEAM !!!! , for the last 50 YEARS , is that not quite ironic ha ha . sorry for hijacking but I point this out to EVERY ****my bow Strongbow follower I have the misfortune to meet, and when the penny drops ( singing their stupid song in their heads) you know when they get to the "WEE FITBA TEAM " bit , it's just priceless. Again sorry for thread hijack but thought I would share.

    It's just a modern version of a pig shelter with seats and an indoor/outdoor feel.

    Noticed they where saying that season tickets were hitting 13k mark, and if this continues they will have to fill in there corners or put another tier on the wheatfield stand, I thought it wasn't possible for them to fill in the corners.

    I'm not even sure how they'd fund another tier or filling in the corners, they haven't got the funding to complete the one they have started building. Additionally an increase in season tickets doesn't necessarily translate in to bigger crowds over the season as there's a good chance the new season ticket holders were previously walk ups. It's only at the end of the season when you measure actual demand can you tell whether expansion is needed, and probably more than one seasons figures before you commit.

    Saying that's, it is Hearts so why let common sense dictate their actions, wait a minute while I get some popcorn.

    Fill in the corners and watch the game through the floodlight supports which also hold all the stands up? Hope they go ahead with that one.

    Exactly. Their corners are the supports for the stand roofs. Nothing can go in there. They don't seem to think much over there.

    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 always wondered why that new fangled Chip and Pin thing was invented.

    To the point of this thread. Does anyone have an exact number to put on their capacity? Even a ballpark exact number?

    Ach, it's just a giggle, mate.

    Was with a Hibby pal yesterday who works with some Jambos regularly. Said Jambos are wetting themselves as they think the capacity is going to bigger than ours and are going on about it on and off to him. If it was then, to me, that's just life, big deal. I informed my mate it isn't going to be, and he saw this the same as me - an opportunity to watch them wriggle and anguish over something that means the world to them. If it's under 19,000 they will be devastated.

    I went to the open day last year and the password for the press wi-if was on a piece of paper stuck to the wall. I duly took a note of it for the coming season

    Tut, tut. Yes, it's on the wall in the press lounge. The range in the main stand is quite limited. I think this is the idea. However, the press WiFi at St James' Park reaches the entire stadium so I always make a note of that the first game of the season I am in the press so that you can still get a signal at half-time when 52,000 people start trying to check their coupons online and the cell gets filled.

    Is it true they ordered the wrong turnstiles and now need to raise more cash?

    I would guess so .... its pretty obvious when you go to the Wongadome that their seats are narrower than Easter Road's, not to mention there is clearly less leg room .... they currently have a 15,000 capacity 'stadium' made to accommodate 16,700 or so by fitting it out with the narrowest seats they can get away with.

    Perhaps these 'posh' seats in the new mega stand should be advertised as 'The Easter Road experience'

    Yes, but far closer to the second than the first.
