  1. Any output or clarity from the club advising those who sit centrally in the main stand if they will and where they might be relocated to - in order to comply with the ‘red zone’ requirements?

    We sit in M7, however I understand that it was only M4, M5 & M6 that was affected?

    I am not sure if away fans are allowed into the St. Johnstone game - wondering if those affected may just get moved to the away end on that basis?

  2. I thought McAllister did very well when he came on, also whilst it took the two of them a wee while to settle down I also thought McPherson andHenderson were ok - McGrath showed flashes of his class.

    We were a bit unlucky today, I felt we were snatching a bit at things and just generally a bit out of sorts, we are crying out for width and need someone calmer up front (Dennis) to put the ball in the net.

    One or two wee tweaks, a bit more time together and with a wee bit of luck we’ll be ok this season.

  3. The issues with the generator etc go back years . We have had the same CEO for 6 years.    
    Legend an all that but ……….

    Good point on the generator, normally kit like that has an inspection, maintenance and testing routine - if you do all that when it’s needed it will either kick in automatically (if it’s programmed to do so or manually).

    Furthermore where is it sited and how relevant is this to the main stand red zone?

    I suspect a number of main stand fans will be ‘repositioned’ for the fakes game, best the club identify who is being moved and advise them of their alternative seat (elsewhere in main stand or away end) ASAP - to prevent further bad press.
  4. is that just cause yer a tight fisted jock?

    Hope you enjoyed your eldorado last night? Yes you are correct to an extent - value did come into my thinking, when I buy something I either want it to last or in this case to be shown off (as current) and because the strips are ‘late’ my boy can’t show it off.

    2 paracetamol, glass of water and a couple of extra hours in bed - you should be fine then….
  5. Do we have an idea of how many tickets we have sold for taking fans through tomorrow. It doesnt look as if their will be a big home support by all accounts 

    Hard to say, however I’ve just had a look at the Livi site on my phone and it looks to me that we have roughly sold about 60 - 70% of the stand that runs the length of the pitch, we are in area M which is towards the right hand side (I bought them on Monday) and the only areas available to us now is R with plenty of seats and Q with practically nowt.

    Looks as if we’re bringing a big crowd through!!

  6. Worrying thought

    Interesting though that on kids kits it’s different sponsor and you can buy strips without sponsor on.

    Getting strips 7 games in to a season however from Saints ?

    Your last point is fair - we are near end of August now and up here the good weather is almost gone, if I bought my son a strip he’s not really going to be able to show it off.

    Now if the strips were available say 6 weeks ago he would have got all the summer holidays out of it.

    Appreciate (whilst I don’t know the detail) that Skyview ‘moved the goalposts’ - no pun intended, which has had a fairly big impact, are/were Skyview in breach of an existing contract or was the contract up for renewal and we got caught out (commercially)? Where I am going with this is - if it’s the former - could we go after Skyview legally for breach of contract and collateral damage (the strip sales)?

    Probably not going to get him his strip now which is a shame because the home one is a cracker.
  7. Let's face after last night's ticket announcement all it would have took would have been for someone this morning to jump in a car from Livingston to Paisley to bring the tickets here and they could have been on sale this afternoon & tonight.

    Spot on, I’m aiming at Livi here, but you’re right - get the tickets couriered through and get them on sale ASAP - it’s in everyone’s best interests.

    The Livi ticket system is so bad - I’ve paid but can’t download to phone - looks like I’ll have to try to print.

    I’d have much rather just went to our own ticket office!!
  8. Gave up with it, I might take a walk down to the ticket office and buy from a human.

    The only reason I never gave up was fear of missing out - lots of the seats in the section I was choosing (M I think) we’re gone (around 70% as of this morning), the other section - can’t remember what one it was was around 40% so not quite so bad!!
  9. I would consider myself fairly tech savvy / computer literate - to all buds buying a ticket via the Livi site - be very patient and ultimately be prepared to completely lose the rag!!

    Just took me 1/2 an hour, absolutely mind blowing, I eventually got there, look out for the fun pitfalls of having to register every person for every seat - an extreme thrill in my case as my son has exact same name……

    Finally got this done, can’t face the final hurdle of navigating the ticketus email of printing our downloading the ticket.

    Seriously though - if I didn’t need my st Mirren fix I would have chucked it. Livi website is awful.

  10. I see the SLO has posted on Facebook today that "quite a few St Mirren fans" have been asking for more info for this game and have been contacting Livingston too there seems to be some sort of panic about tickets for this game.

    Don't see what the panic is even if rules were still 2000(which is 5000 from tomorrow) that is more than enough for a Livingston v St Mirren match.

    I’m quite keen to go to this with my boy - I see there is nothing up on the official site.

    Got to agree, there should be no issues getting a seat for this match!!
  11. I received a call last night from Campbell. A few people now couldn't make it and we were next in like in the ballot. This will be my son's first ever game. We are sitting in the north stand rather than where our season tickets will be, but I am so excited to be getting him to his first game. It was a nice wee surprise last night at like 9pm.

    Genuinely happy to hear this, hope you and the lad have a cracking day and he see’s a win for his first game!!
  12. Having read the "non update" update yeaterday, I'm wondering whether the Main Stand will actually be open for the St Johnstone game. The "infrastructure issues" might be cover for the players continuing to use the main stand. And yet they continue to sell STs for the Main Stand?
    I'm finding it deeply ironic that a club that is now majority fan owned - is almost non existent in its communications with fans. No contact from the club to individual ST holders on the Hearts ballot, and none again if you were unsuccessful. Embarrasing, really.

    If I don’t get in my seat for the fakes game I want my money back - I don’t think the club are telling the truth!!
  13. Firstname-Surname-2222

    (2222 being your 4 digit ST purchase number, which is also your initial password.)

    Thanks BEK - Just logged in and it worked, would never have known to apply my new 4 digit order number as the suffix!!

    For all other buddies locked out of today’s game or just watching on st Mirren tv - the log in has changed!!
  14. No nerve touched.

    On the last email confirming my purchase, the login details were included.

    Ah - right ok, so here’s the thing, I’m sure I read something had changed (log in wise), I’ve not attempted to log in yet since last season, I’m barred from the match today and I’ve got the fear that if I try to log in and don’t get in it will literally tip me I’ve the edge St Mirren wise - I’ve had a belly full of it this week!!

    So in essence I haven’t bought today’s match - so no log in details!!

    I’ll maybe try it after my morning coffee…
