    Makes complete sense and is the obvious solution.

    The easy and obvious solution is to simply make the game unallocated seating as a one-off and for season ticket holders to show a bit of understanding that they may not get the precise seat they want. That would virtually guarantee that nobody gets separated.
    Someone in charge needs to calm down a wee bit and make the obvious decision.

    Well for now it would be the one who doesn't want me to spend as much from the counter at half time!

    But seriously, how can the club f**k up something so simple... And even then, mistakes happen, but it's then how you deal with the aftermath that counts. Thus far, the club is failing badly at both. It's embarrassing.

    I'm in a similar boats, managed to get two of my three tickets (myself and one of my sons), but my other son's seat sold. So what's the solution? We already have two of the three tickets, one of us sitting elsewhere isn't an option unless the club think it's suitable for ) me to leave two under 6 year olds alone, or me and one of them sit together and send the other under 6 year old to sit alone.

    Clearly neither option appropriate, and there are no other seats of three together anywhere around, so what's the solution from the club? Emailed Tony Fitzpatrick, and awaiting reply...

    What a shambles from our club, as usual sadly.

    The first was also a shambles albeit a great finish in off the bar.
    This was the 3rd or 4th time in the first 10 minutes that we hadn't closed players down.

    Yes, but that was the case 2 months ago against Celtic too then nothing afterward. Horribly, it's not just fight we need, but the ability to pick up points to go along with the fight. We've yet again thrown that away today.

    It's okay Doakes, I have more legal knowledge in my little finger than he has or ever will have in his lifetime. And that's fact, not opinion. I've also been a company secretary in the past and have a pretty good idea of obligations. That's why I feel utterly comfortable with what I originally said, and stand by it.

    It's ludicrous  to be defending the board in this. We as fans have the right to protest and project our views against the board if we see fit. Surely free speech is a fundamental right? 
    If they don't like whats being said against them then tough. They just need to deal with it. Are they going to throw everyone out if we start singing "Sack the board"? 
    This is even more relevant in this instance where the club is part fan owned. It makes the whole situation even more farcical.

    Feck me! Have some really been so indoctrinated that they actually believe the club have a right to remove banners that they don't like? Banners that are not abusive but informative. The banner in question merely displayed the truth. no harm. No foul.
    Only a self righteous idiot would think the powers that be should have the right to prevent free speech. This attempt at sanitising so many walks of life is crazy.
    Absolute Horseshit.

    Here's the thing. I get the club wanting to check a banner to make sure it isn't something that could be regarded as offensive or criminal in nature, but beyond that it is none of their damn business what message the fans want to project, they have absolutely NO business taking any action or confiscating a banner like this. None.

    I did leave early and was in Car Park at 10 past 7.
    It was pretty packed then.
    Surely it is very easy to issue so many pay at the gate passes, and once they are gone then  Car Park Season Ticket Holders only after that.
    Simple arithmetic would solve the problem

    On another point from last night, our club's organisation relating to the car park was an utter disgrace. Fans with passes not being left in a queue of cars and missing kickoff because they let in too many pay on the day vehicles leaving not enough for those that have paid for annual passes. The club needs to look at this seriously. I missed the first 5 minutes of the game because of them (and in case anybody says I should have left earlier, I was within 2 minutes of the ground at 7:15pm, it was the police and stewards that caused the delays and holdups through incompetence.

    I see the second half differently to a lot on here. I believe it would have been nothing other than stupidity to have gone attacking against the 10 men, because Celtic playing on the break or against an open and non-compact Saints would, in my opinion, very likely have nicked a goal or two with their strength and speed. We needed to remain compact and use the extra man not to attack, but to continually use two men to press the Celtic player in possession whilst WE continued to play on the break trying to make runs if they left themselves short at the back, and with luck get a chance or two to nick a goal. That is what Kearney set the team out to do, and he did it successfully. The reason we didn't get two or three more direct chances to score were NOT because of the formation or tactics, but because when we did get forward, which we did on three or four occasions including the free kick, our players either took a touch too many or didn't play an obvious pass when they should have.

    It was a great job all round, both from the set tactics, and from the players in executing them.
