  1. It is probably too late to get the game moved to Murrayfield to accommodate the hordes too. As I stated earlier this week SMFC ticketing arrangements are a shambles at the moment and the Jambos aren’t much better. In no way am I pointing the finger at the office staff - the problems are with the hierarchy who appear to be quite happy to preside over the ongoing fiasco.
  2. Using my bus pass to get the game so via Glasgow it is - after all you can take the boy out of Paisley but you can’t……etc, etc.
  3. I agree with your comments on the way the club is managed at the moment. I have now arranged to have someone collect the tickets and I will go to the game via Glasgow to pick them up.
  4. Hearts have cash turnstiles for home fans but not providing one for away fans is another example of how clubs treat all fans. Maybe their interest free loans mean that for a little while clubs can turn down additional income. There are ways to eliminate potential loss of tickets in the post - the initial issue of SMFC season tickets was by barcoded emails.
  5. The ticket office have the tickets but they just won’t post them out so that really isn’t the fault of Hearts. I have bought batches of tickets in the past for several away games and have always had them delivered promptly so it does appear that there has been a change of policy by SMFC about posting tickets out. Like I stated in my original post I was making the point that clubs generally need to up their attitude towards fans e.g. issuing of e-tickets would solve the situation I referred to. I wouldn’t imagine that members of Wick Loyal or Lerwick Emerald supporter clubs would be too pleased if they were told that the had to pick up tickets in person for any match
  6. I have decided against my better judgement to head to Tynecastle on Saturday. Called the ticket office only to be told that they don’t/can’t post tickets out, they aren’t available online, no cash turnstiles and that I would need to collect them in person which would entail a roughly a 120 mile round trip to do this. It really shouldn’t be that difficult to purchase tickets. Clubs, not just ours, need to waken up and realise that we are customers and we can walk away as a few have done since the pandemic started.
  7. Invested some of yesterday’s win but missed out a six timer then got a nice wee cash out from a free bet on the Liverpool demolition of United.
  8. I may be missing something I.e I might be getting it totally wrong, in relation to the ticket sales for this game. I see that tickets will on sale on the day from both the main stand office and for the first time at the west stand kiosk. So can anyone one including supporters of ‘them yin’s’ can just rock up on Sunday and by a ticket for the main and west stands. If so it makes for an interesting Sunday afternoon and a complete mockery of the idea of keeping fans apart. I know that there are always some away supporters who find their way into the home area but this looks like a free for all with these arrangements.
  9. Must have been my £3 stake that had them scared sh1tless !
  10. It was a wee bit of fun yesterday and I thought it was beat until Ritchie whacked the Spurs guy with quite literally the last kick of the match. One thing that is a pain when you are betting like this is when refs play the advantage rule when there has been an obvious foul. I find that it does add a wee bit of interest on a TV game but bet365 are frustrating since they remove the cash out option at times for what seems like fairly random reasons e.g I was only waiting on 2 or 3 free kicks with about 10 mins to go but the cash out option wasn’t available.
  11. Nice one. My bet on this match came up in the final seconds due to Matt Ritchie fouling someone. If I had known Shelvey was going to be involved I would have added a red card too.
  12. Good article on Jamie from the Irish section of the Times today ... Jamie McGrath coming of age in Ireland’s new generation Paul Rowan Thursday October 14 2021, 12.01am, The Times Such is the nature of St Mirren’s operations that their players who earn international recognition generally do so at under-age level, before their services are required elsewhere, but the Ireland international Jamie McGrath is proving an exception. McGrath picked up his fifth cap against Qatar on Tuesday night and in the aftermath inevitably faced questions about whether his future lay away from one of the less fashionable SPL clubs. “I’m happy where I am,” McGrath replied. “I have a year left on my contract, up until next summer. So we’ll see what happens, but I love every minute there. It’s a great bunch of lads and the gaffer has been brilliant for me as well. I can’t speak highly enough of him.” That was a reference to fellow Irishman Jim Goodwin, who signed him last year. McGrath goes back considerably further with the Ireland manager Stephen Kenny – who once managed Dunfermline and then hooked up with the attacking midfielder at Dundalk for a highly successful spell before both men moved on. McGrath’s lengthy apprenticeship in the League of Ireland and a determination to complete his business degree studies at a Dublin university means he is now regarded as coming player, even at the relatively old age of 25. Kenny himself – who reached a Scottish Cup final in 2007 with Dunfermline but was relegated in the same season before being sacked – is not one to stick his nose up at players from smaller clubs, and nor can he afford to either. Whereas Ireland once was able to boast of a number of Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal players capable of giving a game to some of the best teams in Europe, now more ingenuity is required and McGrath hasn’t looked out of place so far. “I don’t think Stephen Kenny cares who you play for,” McGrath says, “As long as you are doing well he will give you a chance. During the last lockdown I put a lot of hard work in. I came home for about three months and worked my socks off. It’s nice to get the rewards. Hopefully this is just the start.” At one point he felt he was being left behind by some of his peers, but what McGrath has had at clubs he has played for is plenty of game time and along with that has come a plethora of goals, including 17 in 46 appearances for St Mirren last season. He hasn’t been quite so prolific so far in this one for his club, but for Ireland he has already contributed with an assist against Portugal last month and won the penalty on Tuesday that was converted by Callum Robinson, even though McGrath is the regular spot kick-taker for his club. “I had a brief discussion with Callum, but he was on a mission so I didn’t want to stop him,” McGrath said as his team-mate went on to score a hat-trick, his fifth goal in three days for his country. Playing in a wide position rather than the central role for his club, McGrath also played a part in the neat build-up for Robinson’s first goal “I’m not playing as an out-and-out winger, so that suits me as well. I have the freedom to come in and join in if I want. I really enjoy that position.” McGrath is already proving a firm favourite back in Ireland, blessed with boy-next-door charm and genuine humility, which probably comes partly from growing up in rural Co Meath. From Lansdowne Road, McGrath heads to Ross County on Saturday, with St Mirren on a run of five games unbeaten. On a previous weekend, McGrath entertained a handful of Ireland fans he met on the plane coming to Glasgow for a music festival after the September international window. He showed them some of his favourite spots in Glasgow after they had been reacquainted watching Snow Patrol. Just another face in the crowd, but perhaps not for long.
  13. Why could Biton not have booted someone after his booking …. Ruined my freebie bet🤨
  14. Just saw this today. Wild night in Foxbar, especially for those charged with ‘nobbing’ !
