Tynecastle a football stadium and the pitch should have been tip top condition for the first League game, any other event should have been at the end off the season,who ever agreed to this event should be embarrassed unless a substantial amount of money changed hands,what would have happened say if  the ref had Sayed it was unplayable,brines a few years ago postponed a game v hearts at Ross county a lot better than Tynecastle,I have no problem with the event or events but at the right time.

Hearts obviously did not expect the pitch to be affected in the way it was. There is no way that we would have allowed this to happen if we knew that the pitch would be damaged in the way it was.

 

I suspect we have learnt from this and if we are to hold such events in the future, we will no doubt seek further guidance about how to protect the pitch to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

 

Thankfully, we have a top groundsman, it will be repaired and the grass will grow back.

 

We learn from it and move on.

I'm nothing like an expert (you should see my grass!) , but our pitch is still 96% grass so they didn't realise covering it for a couple of days wouldn't make it go yellow is beyond me.

Or they knew it would have a discolouring effect but were advised that it would have no effect to how the pitch holds up or plays on, so felt one game with discoloured grass is fine. They just didn't expect how some fans would treat it as the sky falling in.

Having had to put up with having a garden for many years...  I can assure everyone, grass grows.

Mind when Liverpool played a friendly at Murrayfield. In 2019.

I was on the war of two halves 3.30 showing yesterday and the pitch looked a lot better than Saturday. Took a couple of pictures on my phone but seem to be too big to upload.

I was at “A War of Two Halves” at 3.30 yesterday. And the pitch is looking much better. 

 

I have a picture I shall post after some sleep.

No surprise that it's recovered so quickly.  One game, dry them and move on.  Least of our feckin worries...  :rolleyes5:

If it makes sound business sense to have these concerts in terms of longer term higher revenue, increasing the likelihood of more on field success for the team, then I'm happy to suffer a shitty looking pitch at the beginning of each season.

Still say they should have painted it green, would have looked better and the pant wetters and media wouldn't have noticed it. 

 

Be perfect in two weeks when we play again.

Bare patches still all over the pitch but the experts on here say it will be perfect for the next game - I bow to their greenkeeping expertise.  👍

Jesus ****ing Christ, give it a rest.  That's the response from the pitch after 5 days, there are a further 14 until our next home game.  It will be back to 100% by then.

My opinion is the turf will not thicken into the perfect surface it was prior to the concert in time for the next game.

I’ll be delighted to be proved wrong.

The stadium was in good condition (maybe not "tip top") but better than it has been in the recent past

Would be difficult to hold the opening event of the festival at any other time.

We did make a substantial profit

The game was never in danger of being called off.

The game v RC you refer to was playable but Brines decided to be a prick, but I don't see the relevance here

How much did we make exactly - was a figure confirmed?

Says the person battering their keyboard in caps about the state of the pitch. The person who would piss and moan on this thread rather than believe what the club are saying and look at pictures showing how much the grass has returned in a short period of time.

 

Our next home game is on the 31st of August. That is 15 days away. The pitch will be perfectly fine by then. Chill out.

Not seen any official figures but it would be a decent amount, well worth the price of a wee bit brown grass

Mental crying about the pitch.

Was at the game on Saturday and I didn't think the ball was affected at all 

Looks pish but don't really care to be honest.

You don’t think your reaction to a minor and very temporary problem has been hugely over the top? .  
 

As I’ve said before it did look shit, shitter than I’m sure the club anticipated. There is no long term damage. Lesson learned - not sure what’s gained by continually trying to batter the club for an error in judgement.

Show me the post where I was battering my keyboard in “caps”??

My opinion (and I’m entitled to it) is that the pitch will not be back to its perfect state for the next home game as some are suggesting - let’s revisit this then.

No they don’t seem to have announced how money was made which would have helped deflect the criticism of the state of the pitch.

One other thing it’s not just a “bit of brown grass” it’s bare sandy areas all over the pitch.
