Yep, I think tonight's attendance (19,316) at Tynecastle officially confirms our suspicions that we definitely have the bigger stadium capacity.
But, of course, we have yet to get the Jambos dubious take on this figure. Let's also keep in mind their 18,555 against Celtic at Tynie too.
I'm sure there will be mass denial on Sickback.

Section directly behind the goal that wasn’t sold. And obviously the ones where the tv box was. Not sure there was 700 tho.

Big team my arse. Everyone knows ER has been and still is the bigger football stadium in Edinburgh. Also their midfield is s***.

The difference between tonight’s “attendance” and the Celtic attendance can *probably* be partially explained by the fact HoMFC only give a full away stand in the league to us. A fair number of seats are out of action due to segregation. It is also the reason why the TV box was in the opposite stand at the Celtic game.

All in, there were less HoMFC fans there tonight than versus the Green Bigots.

Won't get a mention over there. Somehow I don't think the Sky studio took up 700 seats so it obviously less than the 20k+ they claim. Anyone able to give a decent estimate as to how many seats were taken up by the studio?

Attendance is only one measure. Only 18500 had an unobstructed view. Shambles of a ground, shambles of a club.

Why is that section directly behind the goal not sold but is so at the opposite end?

Their capacity is only 19514. Trust me. They claimed a sell out tonight as the Sky studio occupied 200 seats. They had the pie and chip lounges open tonight in the tram shelter at ridiculous amount per head so no empty swaths of seats like most weeks.

19,316 - sorry don't believe that.

Sounded like a library for most of the game. On telly, you could hear the Hibs fans pretty well, but virtually nothing from the home support.

They only found their voice halfway through the second half when the had their five minutes of pressure - a few "this is our story.....", the odd "hell hole, hell hole......"

But they were quiet for most of it. Not surprising - watching that team every week would hurt your eyes.

I hope they enjoyed their time at Murrayfield, as they will NEVER have a home crowd over 20,000 again.

Considering it needs to fit the biggest rrrrrrs in Andy Walker mibbie its a more sizeable structure than folks think.

It's an uncomfortable truth for them but the reality is that even with their new "super stand", tynecastle is still only the second biggest football stadium in Edinburgh. And believe me it's a fact that very much sticks in their craw! Rather inconvenient to their whole "Big team, wee team" fantasy and their unhealthy obsession with getting one over on us in everything they do.

When the plans for the new stand were announced it was all about how they would get one up on hibs and finally have the bigger stadium - that has not materialised and it's a sickner. Tynecastle is a dull dingy colour, tacky and cheap looking, nothing attractive about it whatsoever. It will always be inferior to ER. But hey! Least they have the "biggest glass wall in Edinburgh" eh :rolleyes::faf:

£15M + is a small price to pay to leapfrog Kilmarnock (18,128) to now have the 6th largest stadium in Scotland.

Major refurbishment needed in the Roseburn end but I am sure this will be ignored for DECADES to come.

Must be a H & S issue. Not familiar with all requirements for a safety licence to be issued but there were enough issues last night for the whole matter to be reviewed.

What Insurance company in their right mind would cover that shambles last night?

Don't know about Killie fans but as we entered the holding pen just outside the Roseburn last night I couldn't help noticing the magnificent windows in the new stand. You can actually see through them. AND they've got seats in the hospitality area as well. I don't know if they're a matching set but just imagine actual seats in a hospitality area.

If hearts install safe standing in all their "lower" sections then that would bump the capacity up.

Not really, certainly not significantly. The safe standing rails include seats and hahahahahahearts already have the minimum seat size acceptable.

Yes but I'm sure safe standing allows 2 standing to one sitting when in use.

This would have caused the plum to have some kind of episode I expect. He has been popping up trying to convince anyone who will listen that Tiny is now bigger than ER.

BUT He also has his chief article of faith which he ritually chants at all games about it being a 'sell out'.

Imagine his anguish at announcing a sell out capacity crowd at Tiny which is over 1000 seats smaller than ER.

If we were to be generous to the yams in this season of goodwill we could say Tiny might hold a few hundred more people if they were able to actually sell all the limited view seats. However given the old official capacity of 17,420 they appear to have blown £15m on 2k extra seats, a school view lounge and some deep fat fryers.

This is a brilliant strategy which will take 20-25 years to pay for itself (assuming capacity crowds flocking to the nihilistic hoofball every single week). After that they will apparently really be able to start to spent big... on the other three corrugated iron bus shelters which will have fallen to pieces in the meantime.

It’s on their wicki page saying the PBS holds 20099 but as 400 in their new stand can’t see the pitch , the only way they will get above 20k is for a firework display 😂😂
Imagine spending 15m on a new stand , that makes over a thousand seats restricted view .

Even if 20,099 is true it does not match our 20,193 against Celtic recently.

No wonder their stadium announcer, who was so bullish and bombastic before the monstrosity was started (still nowhere near finished), is much more coy in his language now, and their various publicity stooges ( AllisBarry et al) were happy to swallow the big stadium myth hook line and sinker.

Twangers, the lot of them
