    The attendance last night at Murrayfield for the rugby was 53K. That’s 21K more than the attendance at Hampden.

    Crazy thing is that I’m genuinely not surprised one bit with vast difference between the attendances at both Hampden & Murrayfield last night. It’s clear as day that folk would rather go and watch a meaningless rugby friendly against an “average opponent” with Scotland fielding a very young / 2nd string side over the national football team who’s game had way more importance to it due to needing a win to stand any chance of qualifying automatically for Euro 2020.
    My pal got tickets for his wife & bairn to go to Murrayfield. Prices were £15 & £1. That might go some way to explaining the difference in attendance size.

    Scottish football imagines it can charge premium prices for second rate product. It can't. At least not if it wants to grow it can't.

    Scotland international attendances have consistently been among the highest in Europe for many years despite a ***** product and ***** prices.

    The fact that people are finally voting with their feet should scare the SFA into doing something, but they won't.

    The attendance on Monday will be higher as folk want to See the Belgian superstars.

    That's a very sappy post #metoo sentiment. Such men were described as "whipped" back in the day. Nowadays 'the future is female'. If your missus wasn't on a pedestal before I'm dann sure she is now.

    Wedding anniversaries aren't something to celebrate. They are a time of mourning. Any right thinking man should be drowning his sorrows in regret at his lost freedom!
    Was mine yesterday, I did wonder why I was drinking more than normal!!!

    So true!

    Robertson is one of the best left backs in the world though - would anyone dispute that?

    I had a free ticket and free transport for tomorrow's game, but I've offered it to a friend. I just can't face it.

    Yep. SFA should look more towards SRU than just copy what the FA do.

    SFA are offering no student tickets, pensioner tickets and kids tickets are 15 and under with adults being £27/£30.

    SRU were offering U12 tickets, U18 tickets, concessions/students and adult tickets starting from £15.

    End result being 21,000 more went to a rugby friendly than they did for a European football qualifier.

    It's a term that only applies to non-Scottish athletes irregardless of ability.

    Do SFA not offer cheaper kids tickets for behind the goal? They certainly did when I went through a number of years back. Just checked and £8 for kids tickets which isn't too bad.

    What is true is the crowd was bad enough for Russia what is Hampden going to look like for both San Marino and Kazakhstan at home.
