What do you think the attendance will be?

Not sure it will be too large. Circa 12,500 will be my guess.

We had 10k home fans against dundee so add another 2k plus 3500 dons fans

15500 at least

Having now looked at the current sold stats, 15k+ really doesn't look too unlikely.

Bring them on. :flag:

More than 14,000 but less than 16,000.

I reckon we will have made more from these two games than last season's cup runs (barring the semi and the final) by quite a bit already.

Hopefully 15/16k. It looks like there aren't too many seats left in the East so it would be great if we could sell it out again tomorrow :flag:

C'mon the Hibees. Big game and fantastic opportunity to get far in this tournament, 1st things 1st though.. and we usually are p!sh against the dons but hopefully back at ER & with 2 new players, we can put on a performance and win the tie today.

Im going for 15120.

Does anyone know why the front few rows in all three home stands are not actually used? There must be around 1500-2000 seats.

Im not so sure about these figures. Season tickets not valid and i know an awful amount of people who are not going today on account of the way we are playing.
Hope im wrong.

I'm friggin sick, always get the payment plan and get the top up free. This year I could afford paying it in a oner in July so missed out. An adult and two concessions isnae cheap!!!
No wonder crowds are pish, if you haven't got a ST it's a bit of a dilemma wether to spend half the admission money in the pub or not. One that I'm running through my head now :)

With Pat filling the team full with Irish, its caught the imagination of the folk from over the water. The ferry's from the emerald isle have been stowed out with Hibby's all night, i'm thinking 20k plus?

Seen on Yakback that the attendance is a smidgen over 15k. Just shy of 12k Hibs fans, based on that.

If that's true, then that's about 8,500 Hibs fans for a home game in the Scottish Cup against Aberdeen.

That is absolutely gash, so much so that I'm having difficulty believing it. Tickets were reasonably priced and we got about 1500 more home fans than that for a home game against St Mirren earlier in the season FFS.

If we get to the final, everyone who was there should deserve a ticket to game for making the effort to go to the game.

Can't believe there was less than 12,000 at the game today :confused:

Although, we heard all week that the sheep had sold out, and that was clearly incorrect as there were big gaps in their end (although fair play, great support from them today).

But less that 9000 Hibs fans for a Scottish Cup tie at home at a decent k.o. time - POOR SHOW :bitchy:

Anyone care to tell me where 8500 more would fit in our ends (assuming sheep sold 3500)?

In the huge gaps there were?

The West and FF looked as it would for a run of the mill SPL game.

Nah that's wouldn't be fair. Might have been the only game they've been to all season!

Many others might have made it along if the game hadn't been shifted to an obscure ko time.

Pray tell, how is 3.30 an "obscure kick off time"?? It was 3.30pm, not 3.30 am FFS.

Maybe obscure's the wrong word. What I was getting at is 330 is a rarely used ko time; when did we last ko at that time. How often does a game ko at that time?

Not very often, but I'm sure it was - in theory - a far preferable ko time to the 12.15/12.45 slot on a Sunday. The day change might have scuppered it for some folk, but the ko time can't have been much of a factor.

However you look at it, < 9,000 Hibs fans for a SC 5th round against Aberdeen with adults only (I say that in context of course) 20 a head, is pish.

I wouldn't take it personally. Some ST holders possibly couldn't afford to go, some maybe couldn't be bother because our football's been poor, some maybe couldn't make the day/time etc etc.

We played Hearts in the last round at 3.30pm on a Sunday and there was a much bigger Hibs support.

I don't believe the BBC attendance although I appreciate it was probably supplied by Hibs.

Rodders trying to con the sheep out of gate money?

Nothing to do with your post DH or aimed at you in particular in any way but there are Hibs supporters out there who aren't going to Hibs matches but are the first to greet about the club / team / performance. The quicker they get their butts back to ER the quicker we will improve.

Plenty of stickers on the lamp posts on Easter Road and a few on the bridge that was all I saw.
