  1. Looking at Twitter, there’s talk that names and addresses were needed to purchase tickets (as per SFA rules) - if that’s the case, I imagine the intention is to know who’s sitting where, so no way of moving to unallocated seating. Selfishly, I have three together (two adults and a 5 year old) - what’s the solution in an unallocated seating world if I can only get individual seats on arrival? Getting there early isn’t necessarily a fail safe option given I was 45 mins early at Dens and saw groups struggle to find seats together.
  2. I’d be surprised if there’s no on-the-day demand for tickets, but it’ll be Dundee’s call on whether they’ll offer it. Assume the club will do a late opening on Thursday as well.
  3. Because he was injured. Went down at the same time as Mullen’s penalty claim and body language suggested he was done.
  4. Only if you plan to pass something off as fact ;) Anyway, mon eh Saints!
  5. Nope. I quoted your assertion that MacKenzie was only playing because OK wanted to give him a chance of earning a deal. I've then been pretty clear that that's bollocks, and the selection will be because OK believes it's the best way of winning the game. Last I checked, I wasn't Oran Kearney. For what it's worth, I agree that Baird and MacKenzie offer different things, but are broadly similar in terms of overall ability. Not that you were making that argument in the first place.
  6. So OK's picking what he believes is the best team for the situation then? Not that he's allowing MacKenzie a chance to earn a deal? Neither Kemp nor myself were making any comments on whether GMacK is better than Baird - simply that OK's not going to be gambling with team selection at this stage just because he has an out of contract centre half just back from a long term injury that he'd like to assess before the end of the season. Contract status will have sod all to do with who starts between now and a week on Monday at the very earliest.
  7. Far more logical possibility than seeing if someone's worth a deal in a game that could see us go tenth...
  8. Collum‘s an odd one - thought he had a fine game in general, yet still leaves you with the feeling that he has to be seen. Over-ruling the West Stand linesman twice on the positioning of Dundee free kicks was a personal favourite. Performance-wise, I didn’t think we were wonderful but everyone showed the desire that’s been missing from other games. Thought Dreyer was a nuisance, probably his best game for us, and Muzek looked more comfortable out wide. Mackenzie strolled it, and to get 90 mins under his belt was an added bonus! While Wednesday isn’t a write-off, Saturday is another massive game - could be within a point of Accies after it, then there’s a real chance of salvaging this clusterf**k of a season.
  9. It wouldn’t surprise me if the club use the coin-throwing as an excuse to end the W7 project/experiment. That’s why I don’t doubt that the culprit would’ve been turned in if known to the ‘regulars’. What it’ll also do is gloss over the fact that the club wilfully handed over 1,800 extra seats to fans who glorify the killing of innocent people based on religion, purely for financial reasons. I noticed there was no Panda Club on Saturday, or any of our ‘award-winning’ pre-match family entertainment in place as a result. Given our stay in the top flight looks like it could well be short lived, I hope the board feel the sell-out was worth it.
  10. Strolled it. And Baird looked really good alongside him. Early days, and easy to be motivated for a game like that, but could be a fantastic addition.
  11. Yeah, that’s probably right - maybe I’m clutching at straws for positives. He doesn’t look mobile enough to play up on his own, but 4-4-2 just doesn’t suit the players we have. At least with Mullen you get a worker.
  12. Been a long time since I left a game as deflated as today. Far too many individual errors, but it’s tough to legislate for Kwepawa having the kind of nightmare he had today - he had to get hooked at half time, keeping him on for 3 minutes only served to humiliate the guy. Brock-Madsen was frustrating up front - I’d have been as well playing there in the first half, but he started to impose himself on their centre halves in the second half - shame it was too late by then. Don’t know where we go from here - we’re clearly miles off where we need to be, but I’m not sure I trust us to bring the required quality in.
  13. Or we’re playing great football, having a successful season and have to turn away our own support to accommodate the Old Firm. Spending more doesn’t guarantee quality - I still remember Mo Camara!
  14. For full disclosure, this is the first season I’ve sat in the South Stand, along with my son (previously, I’d have been in the West, and non-plussed by this). Especially the last two home games, it was great seeing so many younger fans enjoy the experience - clubs like ours need to keep them on board to prosper, not accept that short term profit is the way forward. I get it’s a business decision, but to talk about six figure sums (profit to invest in the squad) alongside a safe standing area (presumably funded from club funds) can’t stack up either.
  15. No guarantees that would’ve still been the same, as that data would be three years old now. The feeling around the place is totally different now. I’ll never be willing to accept that we HAVE to roll over and accept the Old Firm dollar just to compete. That’s why nothing ever changes for the benefit of Scottish football as a whole. GLS talks about a six-figure sum - how much of that disappears to increased police and stewarding costs now away fans book-end the stadium?
