I was at a wedding this weekend, so I fear that the dots in front of my eyes would distort the count.

I would doubt it.

Probably looking at an attendance of about 15000 which is still decent.

Think the weather could be a factor as well, it looks like it could be bloody Baltic after weeks of decent temperatures at our home games, that could put off a few who don't have a cozy coat :greengrin

For the stmirren game I counted the east stand on the thursday lunchtime. There was 1142 remaining in the east and we went on to have 14485 at the game.

I've counted the east in the last 10 minutes (48 hours earlier than i counted the St Mirren game) and it looks like this -

37 - 263
38 - 78
39 - 101
40 - 68
41 - 26
42 - 44
43 - 69
44 - 386
45 - 284

1319 remaining

So 177 seats short of the st mirren game with 48 extra hours to sell them.

The dot count doesn't work, approx 10% season ticket holders miss each game (that came from Leanne) and the exec seats top tier centre are usually about 75% empty

It doesn't work in so far as it doesn't tell you the exact attendance on the day, but it does work in telling you the exact number of seats sold and any still available for purchase.

There is no mechanism for identifying whether more or less than Leanne's average 10% of season ticket holders show up on the day, so it's the best we have.

Good to know it's 10% though. That means we can subtract roughly 1,100 from the number of tickets sold in the home stands to estimate the attendance.

There are just over 100 coming from various British Legions, Royal Navy club and other ex-service associations. There are also more severely disabled supporters from Erskine going to be in BTG during the game.

East looking identical to the St Mirren game then, so expect a crowd upwards of 14,500 with Falkirk bringing a bigger crowd than St Mirren.

I'm amazed every home game that the attendances are still so high.


I thought there'd be an initial boost then they would settle in to around 11-12,000 (still better than last season).

I think we will get lower crowds for the games next Saturday against QOTS and on Saturday December 10th against Dumbarton but hopefully they will still be decent attendances.

Doesn't look to be as busy as the previous home matches this season. I'm surprised because Falkirk to me are one of the big games in this league and I for one am desperate to see us put one over Houston after last years antics.

Still time for the seats to sell so I'm hoping for a late rush, would like a big noisy support for this one. :thumbsup:

It looks like a number of factors are going to conspire to keep the crowd under what it might have been for this one.

A few will be in London
The natural drop off I expected after the initial cup final euphoria had worn off
Falkirk aren't looking like the challenge they might have been .... still a tough game though
The weather forecast for Saturday is terrible
Some folk will be at the Rugby ..... oh dear!

Serious question ...... do the police ask the RFU to schedule games so they don't clash with Hearts being at home? If they do it seems a bit unfair on Hibs from a commercial point of view.

I don't think there's ever been any consideration given to Scotland rugby matches clashing with Hibs or Hearts games. Tomorrow's game with Australia is a sell-out and will definitely take a few off our crowd. I'm working this weekend so unable to go to either game, although I'd have plumped for Easter Road.

The forecast I saw yesterday showed heavy rain lingering over Edinburgh on Saturday and lasting for the whole of the afternoon. As I read your reply the forecast came on the TV and now its changed, it looks like the rain will clear in the morning and Edinburgh will be ok apart from the chance of the odd rain shower.

Anyone in London for tonight's game could easily make it back to Edinburgh by 3pm and anyone preferring rugby over a Hibs home game should give themselves a shake.

There will be a "false" rush shortly when the ticket office print off blocks of tickets for the pods.

Usually in less frequented sections, like sections 1,9, 25,37 and 45.

In in the days when the police knew how to handle crowds there was one Saturday when Scotland played Wales in front of 80,000 ,we had a cup tie against Aberdeen with 30,000(including quite a few Taffs who had decided to follow the red scarves to a different ground)and Hearts had over 40'000 for their cup tie with Rangers.No bother anywhere.

It will probably depend on how many Falkirk supporters are confident enough to come through for the match.

It may also depend on how many Hibs fans can avoid the lure of staying in London or watch the bloody egg chasers?

It really ought to be 16,000 but Inthink it will be nearer to 15,000.

I remember that though I think the rugby was against France. We lost 4-3 to sheep having been 4-0 down & sheep keeper, Reggie Morrison was MOTM. The answer to OP however is yes. Crowd control for both PBS & Rugby is (or was) managed by Torphicen St while ER is managed by Leith. Therefore they prefer to keep Yams/egg chasers separate.

It's looking like another bumper crowd today. A good number of walk ups could make it a huge home crowd. I hope so as this is a crucial win for us to keep us from DUFC.

Hope to see ER rocking today to give the team another push towards the title.

I'm lucky in that international football has never really done it for me. In addition, I hate the small minded west coast orientated football authorities and therefore pretty much anything to do with Scottish football that isn't Hibs. I would have giggled had Scotland been crushed by anybody else bar England, but as they are just as obnoxious in their own way, I content myself with a smile of disdain and a patronizing "will they ever learn" shake of the head.

A long way of saying that I find myself in fine fettle for this championship contest, with zero emotional baggage from other footballing sources.
