I stand corrected, we did, although Hibs lost tens of thousand of pounds in unsold seats that day.
Did there being 1800 instead of 3500 Celtc fans there affect the result? I honestly don't know.
Yeah it's a tricky one, you can't really say with any certainty either way, what little data we do have so far would indicate it does have a positive effect. Comes down to a choice between guaranteed cash in the bank versus marginal gains which will have the potential to equate to points on the board. I think we just have to make a judgement call maybe game-by-game or season by season as to what is best for the club at that moment in time.
I find anyone supporting the old firm outside of Glasgow weird tbh. There is no reason for it all unless itís a family thing, and even then itís weird. Support your local team from grassroots to top level.
Agreed, I find it quite annoying actually.
I remember seeing a post on twitter from a Celtic fan slating the Hibs support for poor attendance post league cup semi at Hampden, how we were an embarrassment for not selling out our allocation.
Imagine my shock when I click on his profile to see he's from Edinburgh. The old firm and irony don't go.
