    More than willing to pay an extra £20 on my season in order to see a huge reduction in tickets given to that mob from Ibrox but to make it permanent. The Blue pound as they call it would not be required.

    Huns are foaming at the mouth, and it’s absolutely glorious: https://www.followfollow.com/forum/t...tickets.25764/
    What is hilarious about the whole thing is that the absolutely genuinely seem to think they are some sort of special case

    Somebody should explain to them that in the real world they are just another club, though to be fair a deeply unpleasant one, and how it works is that when clubs like us are on a bit of a downer crowd wise we will happily suck every last quid out of their glory hunting hordes. When we aren't they are going to have to take what we give them and suck it up like good little Huns.

    Something else that they and their east end business partners need to realise is that for clubs like Hibs, Hearts and Aberdeen 2 visits each from the arse cheeks in a season is no longer a significant factor in our financial good health .... for Hibs that adds up to 16,000 fans in total and though nobody will deny that that is a fair wedge of cash ( £448,000 if they all paid £28 to get in ) its small potatoes compared to our overall income these days.

    In fact you would also have to factor in that if the arse cheeks were replaced in the premiership by say Dunfermline and Dundee Utd they would probably bring a total of 4,000 between them to their 4 games at Easter Road, paying £22 each to get in adding up to £88,000, so that reduces the £448,000 to more like £360,000

    If you then factor in the massively increased police and stewarding bill Hibs no doubt have to pay, especially when the Huns visit, that makes a fair dent in that £360,000 as well, lets say as much as £75,000 extra for the 4 visits from the uglies, which reduces that £360,000 to £285,000

    So Sevco's value to Hibs in a season is probably around £180,000 ...... roughly what it costs us to keep Lewis Stevenson on the park

    F***ing morons, they seem to miss the point that we only get a poxy 900 seats at the bigotfest arena when we play them but think they are entitled to a full stand from us, bams, let's hope they don't turn up and refuse to take there 500 tickets for the game.

    If we hadn't' given them the whole stand since the we day built it then they wouldn't expect it now, I think we should cut the allocation, however I do think if they were to give us 3900 tickets for Ibrox theres not a chance we'd sell out.

    Section 51 was always used for the player comps but this has now been shifted to the upper tier of the West. Hopefully this is more eveident to those in the East. I think even with hospitality full that there was capacity in the top tier.

    It’s seems a good policy as there are 250 seats that can now be sold as premium seats to increase revenue.

    Demand for the Sevco game will follow our chances. If we’re still in with chance of 3rd or 2nd, it will sell out easily. Celtic match only has a few days to go, Sevco a few weeks.

    How many did we sell for the cup game many moons ago, took a good crowd through that day, we are looking good just now and probably would sell 3000 for a league game just now against them, Hibs should roll with the good just now and cut the allocation for them, they will moan about it and threaten to not come back but they would given the chance, they treat us like Tom kike when through there, lets for once return the favour on them, 500 tickets should be the amount they get for the game, f*** them.

    Exactly - what do we have to lose? Absolutely nothing.

    If you mean the Cup game in 2006 where we won 3-0 (again), then we took 6,400. We had the whole Broomloan Upper Tier and 3 out of 5 sections in the Lower Tier.


    As an aside, for some reason they sold seats in two sections pf the Broomloan Lower to their own Fans, despite the rest of the ground not even being sold out. There was quite a bit of 'goading' going on that day ;-)

    After the damage the caused in the last game at ER we should offer them a beam back only and leave the seats empty.

    . You can't just ban away fans from purchasing tickets, plus it would be madness to knock back the money for even half the stand.

    Expect the Celtic game to sell out within the next 24hrs, about 60 seats left in the East, 18 'normal' seats left in the West (plus about 30 premium) and the usual 10 or so left in the South.


    Hibs should announce on Friday that they are reducing the allocation for Rangers/Killie games.

    Apologies if already been mentioned ....
    I know we’ve played games before , with hibs fans in the south and the fans have mixed outside the ground after 90mins . If/ when we sell out half the stand against the the rangers , I take it the police will lock the zombies in for at least 30mins after the final whistle ??

    The Hibs fans from the South Stand will exit via the East Stand. The barrier will be up to let the Zombies get away and we will have to go the long way around to get to Leith Walk. Unlike at Ibrox where the Hibs fans will be kept in and then have to queue for three quarters of an hour at the subway station.

    Are we the only team where the home fans are the ones that are disadvantaged at full time ?
    What a moment this is!

    I'd say the Huns fans are pretty disadvantaged every full time at Castle Greyskull these days, can't buy a win in Glasgow.

    Maybe keep them in if they have a smaller allocation

    It has never happened. A few years back I had a South Stand season ticket and we were kept back to let the Sheep fans get away. That was before the exit via the East was created. The police were particularly aggressive and wouldn’t even let anyone through to the toilet.

    The numbskull in charge kept blethering about it being a Category 1 match, despite the fact that I was there with a Category 2 season ticket. Where did L&B Police find them?

    In fairness the policing category doesn’t have anything to do with the ticketing category.

    I doubt Sevco would fill the whole south stand anyway finishing 5th

    Judging from the ticket sales, I could see a total lol scenario of us giving Killie a larger allocation than the Huns, due to a smaller ticket uptake from our own fans 😂😂🤣

    Fair point, but Hibs will need to make a decision soon on tickets for the Rangers game, a wee win on Saturday, should take care of that
