    So Rangers can get full capacity on Tuesday but we can only get 5000 odd on Sunday. It's this game I'm most disappointed about. Hibs should have given everything to get all season ticket holders at this game. That would only be just over 50% the day before restrictions are lifted.
    Who's decision is it to have only 2 stands open? Hibs or the Council?
    That is a very good question,could it be hibs,the new chief executive said on the Scottish news last night that there was work going on in the south and north stands,maybe hibs have decided to not open the famous five and the south stand.

    Have the club given any explanation as to why the Famous Five stand hasn't been used so far and doesn't appear to be open for our first league game? If not, they need to be explaining that asap.

    I see it as a good sign, as per the current rules they've applied for more above the current automatically allowed limit, they've been able show they can accommodate that number and still keep segregation under current rules.

    The new limit is 5000, that'll make no difference but the removal of segregation rules will mean many more in, what's left? Face masks when moving about?,,, that element will be based on observed compliance previously (as per the Liverpool test events Sturgeon talked about) .

    I think the majority at Easter Road were more compliant than I've seen in some of the other games on TV so hopefully not too much of a negative effect.

    All rhat said.... Edinburgh Council. :-/

    I know we are dealing in hypotheticals, but surely that would be a case for more anger if it were to be true. The stands have been closed for over a year and for people to have paid money for season tickets in these stands missing out due to maintenance that would be pretty poor imo. I think itís more likely the councils decision but like others iíd be very interested to hear why.

    Tuesday is next week and is after the restriction change.

    Capacities are still restricted on the Sunday as they are on Saturday - will be same at Livi v Aberdeen.

    They deliberately change these rules on a Monday so that hospitality / business etc have most of the week to gear up - if we were to have larger capacities on Sunday the rules would have needed changed this week.

    Granted the Daily Record isn't exactly an extra relaible source of information I can see the two Glasgow clubs definitely getting the thumbs up for full capacity crowds. If this is the case what are the chances Edinburgh City Council will do the same for us???

    Some people need to calm down a bit I think.

    Letís at least see what the Hibs/the council have to say first. Thereís been absolutely nothing to suggest Hibs are about to get shafted. No need to get the war cryís going.




    By all means have a wee banner protest and light a couple of fireworks, if that's what floats your boat, but storming the City Chambers seems a wee bit over the top.

    I don't agree with anything illegal or potentially violent taking place but I do think there needs to be peaceful protests taking place, however things turning violent will achieve nothing.

    I suppose you could do that. There is no one actually working in the Council offices just now as they are all working from home, but batter in if you think it'll help.

    No chance that the Daily Record are playing the populist card trying to force the Council/ Government decision

    I think Hibs should threaten to take Edinburgh council to court over the restrictions being placed on us. It is not our fault that Tynecastle only has a few main exits. We should not be restricted because of their failings.

    Unless I'm having a whoosh moment, that would be a stupid waste of time, energy and money.

    Iíve had my tantrum about it yesterday and I still find it outrageous we need to apply to have more than 5,000 (where has that figure come from? Why 5,000 and not % of stadium capacity?)

    Having slept on it though, there probably isnít any sense wasting any time worrying about it until we see what happens at our first game after the new rules are in place.

    If we donít get a full stadium, no decent explanation as to why not and the club keep on arse kissing the council then Iíll be up there rioting with that poster who keeps suggesting it. Well I wonít actually do the rioting part, I will main about it loads on here though.

    Considering we applied for 9000 tickets for a recent game I doubt this is the case.

    We donít know what, if any, restrictions will be placed on us yet. Itís not inconceivable that the council - after Monday - approve our applications.

    Thereís a lot of angst about something that hasnít happened yet. It might happen, but equally it might all be ok.

    I agree with you but I do get the frustration.

    Feels a bit like thereís nothing in the rules to stop us getting a full house but they still want us to beg.

    If there were clear and transparent reasoning behind it or if we were told the criteria for a full house being approved or not then I think people would be a lot more understanding.

    Just now though we are effectively left waiting on a decision being made on whats perceived to be a whim of someone at Edinburgh council who I think very few people have any faith in.

    I believe peaceful and legal direct action is the only way forward in dealing with this now if we continue to get a raw deal from the council after Monday.

    They won't be interested in a few people moaning on an internet message board.

    We're getting our angst in early because it wouldn't be a surprise if we get shafted by the council. Like Bingo says, very few have faith in the council (and their decision making abilities).

    Hibs have thanked the council each time capacities have been announced.

    You think we've been getting a raw deal but the club don't seem to.

    I know who I believe.

    You donít think the club are getting a raw deal getting 25% capacity whilst England had full crowds in May and have full crowds now?

    I don't see the relevance - Hibs aren't in England.

    Could be easily solved if the club or council explained the numbers approved.

    Social distancing couldnít be the reason when thereís 2 empty stands that could have had people socially distanced in.

    Weíll never know though.
