    No one is allowed to dis LD.

    The only points I don't agree is the singing section. It's not to say they are not away season ticket holders.

    Don't think you can buy a kids away season ticket without an adult purchasing one.

    Novel idea.

    Stick in, train, and become a first team squad member.

    Guaranteed tickets, easy peasy. Easier than going on line to try and get them!!

    You're a charmer, unless you are suggesting some way of getting a ticket for Tiny through pyrotechnics. I wouldn't put it beyond the club that if you have lit some fireworks at a game you qualify for tickets

    Alternatively there are people who get peed off when their club does thing they do wrong and don't mind voicing an opinion in a reverent way on a message board. Of course there are those that just post abuse at other members of a message board without knowing them.

    Missed out on a ticket last month and same again today, I'm annoyed and frustrated however this is just a bit embarrassing.

    At the end of the day there are ~13,000 season ticket holders (and countless others) fighting for a far fewer number of tickets. I think the e-ticketing system has major flaws however these 2 derbies have been the only times it has failed me in particular. There are possibly 'fairer' ways to distribute the tickets among more 'loyal' fans but there will always be a huge number of Hibs supporters who don't get to go to games like this. Like I said, I'm frustrated but it's an understandable situation and I'm more than happy to cheer us on from the pub on the 21st.

    It's also worth remembering that it's only around 5/6 years ago that we were getting given just half the Roseburn end and struggling to sell that. I'm glad we as a club are in a position where there is such excitement and demand for tickets in the lead up to these fixtures, even if it means I miss out from time to time.

    I've been very lucky and have got tickets either with loyalty points or by making sure I give myself the best possible chance on the online shambles. I'm so glad I ignored the club advice and logged in at 11.31. Also glad we persevered after the official site said sold out and got another few tickets.

    13K ST holders, 5K of which only backed the club after a Scottish Cup win and promotion. Seems fair to give them same priority as those who backed the club during relegation I suppose ..... 🤔

    As I mentioned before, I took the hump the last time we were there.

    As a "football watching experience" it was pitiful, and I have zero confidence that this time it will be any better.

    Hibs at Tynecastle was always one of my favourite fixtures, always a big one to look forward to, even if many of the games over the years haven't been great. But the last time we were there I just came away wondering what kind of f*****g mug I was for shelling out what I did, to get a restricted view ticket, to have stood outside the ground for 40 minutes, to have missed the only interesting incident (a criminal refereeing mistake that robbed my team) in the most diabolical game of football ever seen - two teams horribly short on technical ability hoofing each other around a bog.

    Baws to getting het up trying to get a ticket for more of that.

    I'm quite content tonight. I might watch the game on the telly, I might not.

    Fair play to all of you clamouring to get tickets for this one.

    The scabbiest of victories and it will have all been well worth it, and those of us who have missed out (either deliberately in my case or not in some others) will be gutted we've missed it.

    That's just plain stupid. By your reasoning the fact that I have been a regular at ER since 1973 and got my first ST in 1987 means that I should get priority over someone who started watching Hibs in 74 and got their first ST after 88? Also I think it is fabulous that folk have really bought into buying STs and attending games again. Perhaps you would like us to go back to crowds of 8000 again. I am delighted that we are having issues with ticket sales. I have been to Tynie since my first away derby in 83 loads of times and some games we didn't sell the whole end. It is unfortunate that people who go to other away games can't get tickets and it needs sorted, I just don't think we will ever please everyone. Anyway rant over and I am now out of these debates.

    We won't, we can't.

    To flip that around, we've got to choose who we are going to piss off, implement a system on that basis, and stick to it. Those who are sufficiently pissed off might drift away, new folk coming in will be happy with it. Them's the breaks, but it will seem fairer the longer it is in place. OF fans are happy with their ballots, Jambos are happy with their established loyalty point system. Either of these systems work fine.

    I don't think that what we have right now is quite right though.

    Not entirely stupid as loyalty points were introduced at the time of relegation then scrapped ....

    And to suggest I would be happy to see lower crowds is just daft

    Additional steps:
    1. Dry your eyes. You'll never see the telephone keypad or web browser clearly if crying your eyes out.
    2. Sour grapes - avoid at all costs as sensitive .net types are susceptible to a sore tummy.
    3. Don't worry too much about 0.8% of tickets going to a group (of season ticket holders) the club deem worthy of receiving them. The effort they have put in to establish a signing section and countless hours organising displays has been rewarded with a measly 30 tickets out of 3600. Most of the songs at the game will be influenced by them, whether started by them on the night or was a song introduced by them. Clearly the club believe they enhance our support.

    Have a great night whether at the game or tuning in to TV/Interweb.

    Take care now.

    I'm sure the fear of missing out a victory, particularly in the cup, after watching Hibs fail to score and get beaten so many times over the decades at that dump is what keeps most of us going. I've never missed out when I wanted to go but I must admit the way the club are dealing with this issue and the feeling that support away from home isn't valued has me thinking in the same vein. I never missed many away games when we had Loyalty Points and have been to hundreds of away games over the years. The withdrawal of that scheme and its general mismanagement put me off going as much.

    10. Threaten to not buy a season ticket next year unless you are not allowed a chance of a ticket at every big game (attendance at other away games not necessary)

    I was lucky too. Doesn't stop me questioning some of the decisions the club are making on ticketing.
