I have no desire to get between you and faraway but, from my seat in W1, I counted in front of me at least 40 empty seats in my area and I am in the 1st row against the partition. I could also see a dozen plus seats in front of the police box in the main stand. Plenty of seats also along the front of the south stand. Suggest you visit the ref website for spec savers  :rolleyes:

Who gives a fluck, we're on our way .

Forget the game and how many empty seats there were. SAINTS ARE BACK. Great night in the Bankhouse. Big thanks to Jack and his staff and Gordan Scott and fellow directors and especially the players for coming down. The singing was deafing. Coys

Not a great game by any means, but perhaps not as bad as we might think. We were in control throughout and, if Morgan's first-half shot had gone in as it deserved to, we might have been judging the game quite differently. Thought Gary Mackenzie was excellent. Seemed to get every high ball the Livi players threw towards our box.

Winning cups is great, but they are one-offs. There is nothing as satisfying as the excitement and enjoyment of seeing the team play to a very high standard throughout a whole season. Congratulations and huge thanks to JR, JF and the players for their efforts in keeping us up last season and giving us such a fantastic time this season. It will live long in the memory.

Another excellent post-match summary by JR, though he couldn't keep the smile off his face this time, and good to put a face to the voice behind the microphone. Well done, Jimbo!

Looking forward to a summer of speculation about JR's future (he WILL stay, won't he?) and seeing which players he will bring in for our Premiership campaign. 

COYS!!

Anyone see the Chairman yesterday? Hope he enjoyed it - deserves a huge amount of credit imo for backing Jack emoji106.png

Gordon was in the Bankhouse last night. He looked every bit a happy and satisfied man. I grabbed a quick chat with him, but was a bit pished so was just slabbering shite. Happy shite, though:)

Huge credit to the players and management team for coming to the pub to celebrate with the supporters last night. That was undoubtedly the highlight of the day. They were absolutely brilliant, and the reception each of them received as they arrived was outstanding. The place was rocking!

The match itself was a bit of a fraught affair, but we never looked like losing it. The result was all that mattered, and I'll happily take a shitfest to clinch a title.

Feeling a bit rough, this morning:lol:

We didn't even try to get in there since we knew it would be jumping as it is the pub to go to after a special game. Shame the old Hole in the Wall pub is no more since the space outside helped to make a good street party with the Argyll  :cheers   The owner of the Court Bar had a black and white strip suit on :lol:  and it was brilliant. I'm sure someone will have his picture on here soon.

Lol.

It was a great day with a big crowd. Loved it. I was in W2 where I normally sit and my potential need to visit Spec savers aside I saw no blocks of empty seats in the Family, Main or West Stand but happy to concede to others who did. (After all Nelson reputedly saw no ships at the battle of Trafalgar).I'm sure the worst they might be accusing me of is poor eyesight or being misguided in my intentions or maybe some kind of party pooper.whoch I am not. I hope the party continues on Tuesday when I am back to see the Falkirk game.

I'm not suggesting that the club was "at it" in any way. I was / am pondering how stands and/or sections marked as sold our on the website and notified to fans as such might then come to have the number of spaces the attendance figures suggest and you report.  

Assuming  the attendance figures collected by the automatic computerised entry system are correct then my main point is that somehow we might have missed out on people attending through advising potential customers that the three stands were sold out. I.E. Some fans may not have managed to buy tickets,particularly those who live away from Paisley. I applaud the club for making the decision to allow segregated sharing of the north Stand.

Not putting this out there to be a smart ass. Our ticket system is improving but it may be that it and the system of communication could still be improved ahead of potentially/likely higher demand for seats next season.

I was at the ticket office at 2:35 for a ticket for the Falkirk Away game yesterday and they were telling people that all the Home stands had sold out but they were allowing Home support into the North Stand.

And no idea why but there were about 8 seats around me in W3 that are season ticket seats that were all empty.

There were loads of empty seats in the Main Stand. You could see groups of empty white seats and plenty along the front rows.

Just because tickets are sold doesn't mean everyone is going to turn up. Out of 6,000 plus people, a fair amount are going to be sick, have to work unexpectedly etc etc and so won't come.

A good many of these were season ticket holders.

Erm, to the game itself................................

After the early Morgan effort it was all a bit low key with Livi slowing the game down from within the first 10 minutes. For a big physical team prepared to dish it out they went to ground easily and played dead,

We were always the team more likely to score but as we got to the final 10 minutes it became a bit nervy until ET when we camped in their half to see the game out.

It's a squad game these days so let's hear it for everyone from Jack Ross down to the unused subs like Ross Stewart, maybe he'll get an outing in one of the remaining matches! :clapping

Samson will want to add to his shut-out record.

ET?
