    East Lothian Saint got a reaction from shull in QoS Game   
    On way home after a great day out. Immense first half. Thought Josh Todd was A1. Smith and Morgan were sublime. Central defence coped well and McCart looked the part. Todd going off kinda ruined the tempo and when Riley was substituted we looked vulnerable. Big Ross Stewart didn't have the same presence and we defended too deep. Still we weathered the storm and James McFadden can safely be called wee fat McFadden the spent force. Well done boys. 3 points you can't get any better

    Whilst I agree, I must point out that what I meant was Smith would replace Eckersley in the Team but Smith and Stellios may change position . Ekersley and Stelios were both playing last Week. So whilst I agree with your assessment I never said Smith would play left back. I knew what I meant even if It wasn't clear to those not on my wavelength. Not many are to be fair.

    Not daft at all . There's no comparison between being at a game and watching on the TV. Being at the game every time for me .

    There are always some dafties who will make the effort. My two daughters and I are on the Edinburgh train en route to Paisley for the match. What a cruel dad. If you feel sorry for them you can buy them a drink in the 1877 club. Crowd will be at least 3. COYS

    Feck no game today. The wife's trying to give me odd jobs but i'm tempted to slope off down the pub and watch the bigot brothers game. Probably not a good move. Hopefully JR has made a better move with Jamie McCart. He made 9 first team starts for Inverness last year and came on as sub twice. He has premier league experience and listening to Jack he will slot straight into the squad and probably the first team. A very pro-active move from the club and JR who seems to like McCart and has been monitoring his progress. Hanging about with Brendan Rodgers seems to have given JR some influence there. We'll obviously see tomorrow but with Whyte away on loan it looks like McCart will slot into the Buchanan spot and it will be  Smith taking on Eckersly's role. That would leave no defensive subs so he could leave out Smith or Irvine and go back to a 4-4-2. should be interesting to see how they line up but I think the McCart signing makes me a lot more positive about tomorrow now, JR is leading from the from the front by sorting out the back. In JR we trust. Role on tomorrow, Tickets and trains sorted. Come on Jamie, COYS. Come on Joomla Jack. We're on our way!!!!!!

    Whyte isn't even a defender , he's a midfielder. If we'd played Whyte at CB tomorrow and lost, then everyone would have been on JRs case , especially when you consider that if McCart hadn't signed with us he would be playing for ICT , Dundee Utd or Raith, who were all lining up to sign him ,  this weekend . We nicked in and nabbed him simply because we need what he can bring to the team at this point in time !

    My daughter sent me this and said it had just been released as the official team photo. I fell for it and was moaning why weren't the muppets looking at the camera. Wondered if they were ashamed to show their faces after Saturday, Good to see they behaved themselves for your Pics Shull where they all look proud to be Buddies.

    For my 2p worth, I arrive at 2-45 to see a queue of about 70 yards long for the cabin and it was also about 4 people wide. After10 min of not moving the word went out that the turnstiles nearest to me was taking cash.  Mad dash toward it and I got to within 15yards from the gate. It was turning so slowly I was starting to think it has broken down. Got in at 3-15 so it took me 20mins to move 15yards at a cash turnstile. There were long queue at the home end but at least they had the option of buying a ticket in advance. I read that some buds got their ticket at the main ticket office and fair do to them for having brains   If I had stayed in the queue for a ticket, it would have certainly be after 3-15 before I would have got in. As for phoning to complain, you would likely get more joy from complaining to Ryanair than getting a response from a football club

    I  was outside the ground at 14:10 and joined the queue to buy tickets.  Tickets were being sold from one ticket outlet with one person serving ie taking cash, giving out change then handing over tickets. Progress was slow. As I got near the front of the queue a side hatch to the ticket outlet opened and a second person started selling tickets. 
    Once I got my ticket I went to the turnstile queue (maybe after the 10 min wait in the ticket queue).  This queue was relatively short but slow moving.  At the turnstile there was someone standing behind the grill and I gave them my ticket. They handed it back and told me to scan it. Where? I asked. They pointed to a small plastic contraption hanging from the grill.  I placed my ticket under the grill and nothing happened.  I was told  to use the other end and not the end I had placed under the scanner. Again nothing happened. I was then told to turn it over and hey presto I was then told to push through the turnstile to gain entry.  My first thought was if they have to explain this rigmarole to everyone then it would take a long time to process the queue that was forming at an alarming rate.
    There was nothing to indicate at any point that the ticket had to be scanned and not just handed over to the staff at the turnstile.
    The scanner is not like the ones St Mirren use where you insert a ticket into a slot - it is more like one you would find in Tesco where you wave it about until you get a hit.  There were no instructions on the ticket or on the scanners or outside as how to place your ticket to have it scanned.  It probably took me just over 15 mins to get in after arriving at 14:10. Meanwhile the ticket queue (singular) now had hundreds in it.
    The people responsible for the fiasco were solely Dunfermline Athletic FC.
    1. There should have been more than one ticket booth.
    2. There should have been more than 1 person selling tickets initially and far more as the queues grew. They could have given staff a pile of tickets to sell going down the queue.
    3. The stewards at the turnstiles could have been shouting instructions that tickets were to be scanned and how to go about it.
    4. Instructions should be posted on the outside walls before entering the turnstiles.
    5. But even simpler was the person at the turnstile should simply have scanned each ticket instead of wasting time giving explanations on how to go about it.

    Have Dunfermline Athletic apologised ?
    Has our Club spoken to Dunfermline, on our behalf ?
    Maybe today.
    Dunfermline Athletic are 100 % to blame.
    It should have been pay cash at the gate.
    No ticket should have been issued till their new system had been tested many many times.
    And tickets should have been on sale at St Mirren Park for the previous 7 days.
    Tickets for the future Match at East End Park should be heavily discounted for all Saints Fans as compensation.

    Sorry we missed you Ian.  The Elizabethan was a brisk 10 minute stroll away except for maybe the "the old obese f**ker at the back of the stand screaming at the ref "  that oaky mentioned who may have done it in 20 barring heart attacks, seizures etc. We kept a seat for you and your good lady but it turned out the organisation at pub was run by the same crew that were stewarding the ground.
    At 1.15pm we were told they couldn't take any more food orders because people had sat at the two big tables and they were dealing with their order first. Maybe it was the old obese F**ker and his mates who had ordered an awful lot of food but It was quite bizarre that a pub/restaurant that clearly advertises its speciality in serving food couldn't cope when lots of tables were spare. It wasn't football traffic they were turning away, it was old wrinkly regulars who looked like they had eaten there every Saturday for the last 70 years.  Maybe Dunfermilne is a really quite place that is only able to cope with crowds smaller than 4 men and a dug. 
    Anyway after meeting our friends and having a small refreshment we did the 10 minute brisk walk having chosen to leave it late. Why sit in a poxy football stadium watching an empty pitch staring at obese old F**kers when you can have a pint instead. A day out at the football is not just about the football for some of us. If our entry had been delayed because of like minded supporters and I missed the start. Fair do's I would accept that. It's a risk of the strategy I adopt.
    The reason most of us missed the start of the match was not because of the time we turned up but because the stewards were inept. The system the club had employed was seriously flawed and the chief stewards couldn't deal with a situation and system that was clearly adding to the problem. Fans who's tickets didn't open the turnstiles were being sent by the turnstile operator (not really a good description of someone who couldn't open an automated turnstile) to the steward who would open another gate, tear the stub from their ticket and let them in manually.
    About 1 in 5 tickets didn't work which meant every one behind the stranded defunct ticket holder had to back out the turnstile and move back the queue to get out. This was even more complicated if the said useless ticket holder was was an old obese F**ker.
    The organisation was a complete shambles and the chaos was exacerbated by inept leadership amongst the stewards who would have been better deployed at gates tearing off ticket stubs instead of watching people sometimes going through turnstiles that didn't work 20% of the time.
    Being late wasn't the problem. The issue was Dunfermilne FC ,who like the Elizabethan weren't geared up to deal with anything more than the statutory 4 men and a dug and if they had been the only ones who had turned up and they had deviated from their normal routine, let's say the dog stopped for a pish at a different spot than normal, it would probably have flummoxed the head steward and two of the men and probably the dug would have missed the start of the match as well.
    The only thing more pathetic than the stewarding fiasco was Oaksy's suggestion than late coming fans are somehow inferior to the punctual ones like him, unless they are old, obese f**kers of course.
