    Motherwell away (28th October)

    Just realised that on the same day we are travelling for Motherwell away (probably most by train,) that at least 14,000 huns from that same direction will be descending on our city.

    Should make Haymarket/Waverley/Motherwell train stations fun places to be...

    I'm still amazed the Edinburgh Police (Police Scotland) are allowing hearts to give the huns such a big away allocation.

    It's bad enough dealing with 3000 of them

    Hopefully they'll get the same short sharp treatment we get when we travel west, but I won't hold my breath

    "probably most by train" Really? I'd have thought a small minority usually travel by train to away days.

    A lot will probably be from Edinburgh and the surrounding towns anyway.

    Come on HC, you’re usually the man in the know

    I would expect that to be a PATG as well.

    that will definitely be pay at the gate. what would be the point, of tickets for Killie? would likely make less numbers to go. imho

    Do you want to live in a state where the police decide attendances?

    The police 'allow' 50,000 of them to gather in Glasgow every other week, don't see why they would have a problem with 14,000 of them in Edinburgh, and if there's any problems its their job to deal with it.

    Going to a match because you think your team's going to win is a terrible excuse.

    Regardless of the outcome of tonight's matches, Saturday is another huge game with plenty at stake. A win keeps us in touch with those above us with s chance to cement that further with a game against Killie next midweek. A 3pm Saturday at Motherwellbus always an appealing one for Hibs fans, but with the feel good factor from last night and the fact it's a top 6 clash should see a bumper following behind the goal. Can't wait.

    Thinking of taking the wee guy to this, does anybody know if the tickets are allocated seats if bought online ?

    Nearly as bad as not bothering cos you think they'll probably lose.

    Yes, you're allocated a Block, Row and Seat number with the tickets bought online, it will be the same if you PATG, you'll get a ticket with an allocated seat on it.

    Decided to purchase in advance. Anticipate a large walk up for this one and saves a bit of queuing on the day.

    Getting to Motherwell by train is a real pain, unless you can get a direct train and avoid a change of stations in Glasgow.

    There is a direct train at 1:12 pm arriving at 1:53 pm.

    Coming back is not so easy. There is one at 5:16 pm arriving at 6:00 pm, which is a bit tight. The next one does not leave until 7:16 pm.

    The timing should avoid any visiting Huns.

    How long is the walk from the ground to the station? I know I could google map it but they have you walking at a snails pace. If the match finishes around 4:50/55 that likely to be enough time to walk at a fast pace?

    About ten minute walk. Cutting it fine.

    They use to run football specials straight to Motherwell, in years gone by.

    Funnily enough, they didn't actually get you there much quicker.

    Motherwell by train can be a great day. I vaguely remember us getting the wrong train home and finishing a top class session in Lockerbie.

    Any update on tickets sold?

    Lower tier only still ?

    Looking forward to this.

    Any recommendations for driving in/parking etc?
    First time taking the car to a Motherwell game, if I remember right I saw a lot of Hibbees just using street parking last time I was there, is this as good as any? Thanks in advance
