It’s a shame 5000 piece of shit Hearts fans didn’t get to see their team get bent over and fucked senseless on Saturday. 

When did Hearts last take 5000 to Pitodrie?

Hearts are found what Hearts do. Have a decent first round of fixtures following promotion until they get sussed out and their results start to drop.

Gordon is a godsend to them in goals and no doubt helps. Hearts will likely be relegated against once he’s unable to be between the sticks

Never. It’s what Neilson said they would have brought.

Would stick with 10,000 and only let a handful of away supporters in, especially from the arse cheeks.

Didn't look like there were 11,000 empty seats today but the sight of so many heading for home before full time and with winter arriving yes I think a high chance of not needing to lie about the crowd size at the next home game.

If I was in charge of Hibs I'd be demanding an equal allocation.

We don't get that, then we don't play.

Simple as that.

It’s not difficult.

Give them 50%.
Leave a couple of sections next to the segregation line & sell them last.
if they don’t sell them say 5-7 days before the final, hand them on to the Tims who will sell them. 

Only in Scotland would the football authorities make such a rip roaring cunt of a simple task.

And also, this reserving ends for both sets of the scum has to be stopped. 
On what logical basis would you make Hibs have the West end of Hamdump when they’re coming from the east side?

We must be the only country that has designated sections for club sides at our national stadium. 

Been like that since I was a kid. "Rangers end" and "Celtic end"

Exactly 

50/50 for a defined period. Then return any you can't sell for the opposition team to sell 

Pretty fucking simple

That’s up to the clubs to challenge.

I’d love it if we played the Tims in a final & Cormack publicly harangued the SFA to give us the East side of the ground on sensible geographical & logistical grounds.

If the SFA say no, demand the reasons why & publicly embarrass the SFA by saying why.

The “because that’s the way it’s always been”  & “that’s where they’ve always sat” doesn’t wash.

It’s a microcosm of the way that the football authorities think and behave in Scotland.

Fuck the SFA

It will never change. SPFL and SFA love it the way it is.  So do the chairmen. Who could forget our old chairman Stewart Milne saying it was great that Rangers were back in the top flight. Dons had won a league cup and had a couple semi decent title challenges while they were fucked, but thank god they came back. 

Shite

Our club cares too much about doing things ‘properly’ to rock the boat like that.

Does the end really matter? I've sat on either side when we've played the differing cheeks.

It honestly doesn't bother me.

50/50 allocation has to be offered though

IIRC it was our vote which guaranteed newco would not be allowed into the SPL.......and as there was no mechanism for placing them in the Championship they had to start in the third division.

Of course there was no mechanism to admit them anywhere in the professional leagues at all given that they were a brand new entity and didn't have the requisite 3 years minimum audited accounts amongst other criteria........but let's just gloss over that little fact and pretend there's nothing to see at all

It just lends further leverage to the ridiculous bias in Scottish football. I'm sure Hibs fans would love to sit in the same end where they won the Scottish Cup in 2016... but as a rule they cannot against Celtic because Celtic get their own section. And their own changing room. I guess its just a small part of a bigger problem

Yes it should matter. Hampden has been our national stadium for well over a century now. Given that Queens Park owned it until very recently, it could never be considered a totally neutral venue.....but you don't  hear of Queen's Park ever having a "home end". 

If the arse cheeks reach cup finals together in future I don't give a shite if they choose to stick to the ends they consider their "own" 

But if only one gets there, there should be the toss of a coin to decide which end of the ground each support gets. And the starting position should be that each club gets a 50/50 split of available tickets unless they specifically request a smaller allocation at that point. If a club hasn't sold it's full allocation with 7 days to go until the final then at that point the tickets left should be offered to the opposing club.

I get the emotional pull of it guys. I'm just saying that fundamentally, I'm not bothered about which end I sit in. 

The allocation (stadium end) should be based on who's drawn out first, so whether it was   Celtic v Hibs or Hibs v Celtic, hoe team drawn out first gets a pre-set end. the problem is if the draw ended up Rangers v Celtic or Celtic v Rangers depending on which end 

The 50/50 allocation should also mean that the split occurs from the halfway point of the North Stand

Totally agree but the corrupt cunts would be delighted if Hibs did that - they'd likely just reinstate Sevco

The point is that no club should have a designated "end" at a national stadium
