    Demand was high because the team was playing very well. Also for "OF" read Rangers, who weren't so good at the time.
    Did we not do it for the 2-0 win v Celtic last season also? So not just v Sevco. And I agree if the demand isnít there to at least partially fill the empty sections itís probably not worth doing.

    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.

    No. We played just as well in the previous season with them having the full stand.

    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.
