Where's the need to moan? Most folk will still travel - we're probably getting decent money from BT. Glad they're showing it. Now lets pump them

Do you think most folk would still travel???

Dunfermline away in September top of the league after 6/7 games of season approx 1400 away fans.

Dunfermline away in January top of the league after 22 games of season approx 600 away fans.

Apparently no trains depart Dundee after scheduled match finishing time 4 supporters buses at Dunfermline plus 1 extra arranged 33 seater if same situation at Dundee that would mean around 250 fans on Supporters buses would 1000 fans travel up in cars??? Not a chance.

If there was ever a game for the club to put on free buses, it's this one. Either that or use the smisa pot.

Pish!! But the price you pay for being a top team!! Lets just get on with it and get as many through there as possible. Club should certainly put on buses.

It's getting out of work on time to get the bus that's the hassle.

Exactly and driving round about rush hour all you need is a minor bump and you've got a problem. Will certainly take hundreds off our support.

Does anyone remember a relegation shootout against Dundee in the old FineFare Premier League where the club laid on free buses?

 Perhaps we should all write to the St Mirren SLO and pitch the idea. Do the club make any money direct from this game being on BT Sport or is it just lumped into the overall league prize money?

Yep,  It was the week after beating Celtic 3-0 at the Piggery, April 1990.

3000 Saints fans made the trip. Dundee scored in the 1st minute then Billy Dodds missed a penalty.  Saints scorers were Geordie Shaw and Brian Martin.

Was flying down for this game but hadn't booked anything thankfully. Might fly to Aberdeen and travel down but it looks like a night in Dundee whatever. Probably visit Paisley on the Saturday and catch up with my lunatic cousin

We had 778 fans in Dunfermline on Friday, 1,400 at the Saturday game. 

I'm sure if the club and supporters buses run a few extra, we'll still see big numbers at Dundee United. I'll guess we'll take over 1,000
