I thought that it looked better than it did from our previous home game. Defo more grass but I don't know what it's like underfoot. Few folk on here have commented that it's quite a hard surface. 

Yup more grass on it for sure but looks very firm. I assume more grass would soften it a little.

 

Warm up areas could do with being moved but there may be a reason they dont do this.

When we spunk out £1m for a quality hybrid pitch and get it turned into a tattie field.

I'll not bother moaning, though.

 

Didn't see any great improvement  to be honest,

Not a disgrace but playing very hard so bobbles are exaggerated.

For the money that’s been spent it’s horrendous

The money spent wasnt just on the green grass, most was spent on the bits we cant see.

 

It will get better.

The pitch is a disgrace, although I see it as a metaphor.

 

The green grass shoots are Stendel and the mud and lumps is budge, levein and the old regime.  Good times are returning and the losers are leaving the club one by one.

State of the art.

State of the money we spent on it. 

State of berra after getting his studs stuck in it. 

 

State of the concert we had on it. 

 

If Metallica had ****ed the pitch up, i could deal with it.

Looked and played better than I expected. It’ll get better as spring hits. 
 

Still no idea who is to blame but kudos to the groundkeepers for effort and time to

get it as playable as possible.

The stung for a million is shite. The majority of those costs are the injection of the fibres and ground works, drainage,undersoil heating etc

 

The actual grass is the issue and has been explained already.

 

It will improve in fact has already.

I hope you’re right, I haven’t seen any threads or comments stating scientifically why it will improve, but during the Hibs game, it was noticeable to myself that the pitch right in front of section A was shot to pieces, and the fringe show was nowhere near that part of the pitch, it’s not impressive.

Sorry but the Club have given no adequate explanation as to why the grass/pitch is in such terrible condition.

All they said at the AGM was that they had no complaints from opposition teams and it was to be over seeded.

Some time the pitch will improve but with respect it should never have got in that horrendous condition.

No it shouldnt have but that was a management decision and its done now. A few weeks time the grass will be lovely once more.

Forget the concert... concerts happen on football pitches all the time...something fundamentally wrong with it... hopefully company who supplied it are monitoring the situation and taking the necessary action!

@kila posted 3 pics of 3 different games over a month up to the At Johnstone game.

May have been yourself, who mentioned winter seed put put down. Other than that, your "done to death" is ott.

What was the cause?

I hope you are correct in that it will improve, I didn't see enough today, 3 weeks on from Aberdeen.

Players were getting caught up in it today.

 

Lewis Moore changing his boots during the game ( in the 2nd half), he must have been finding it pretty inconsistent.

Incorrect - Shite weather/lack of sunlight was given as one contributing factor at the AGM

The strip in front of where we sit (front of main stand right up at the Gorgie Road end) is awful. Garuccio had about 3 balls that bobbled just as they reached him. He hit the first one first time and it ballooned away and he got pelters. The other two he took an extra touch to control it and took all the pace out the move. All down to the pitch. Most of the pitch looks better but this bit is dire

Why did we go for a hybrid version over normal grass?

Has it fulfilled the need/wish that drove the decision/expense?

If not, why not?

 

Grass will be better in March.....😁

I was merely pointing out that what you said was incorrect. They did actually offer reasons at the AGM as to why it wasn’t looking great.
 

My view though seen as you asked..... The EPL teams all have lights which cover their entire pitch at night. Presumably very expensive to buy/hire/operate so we have to make do with a few covering only a few sections of the pitch at a time. If we could invest a bit more (within reason) then I would say it would be money well spent

Or in Tottenhams case a whole new pitch ready to reel out when required 👍

I suspect the first question needs to be...Have we followed our installers reccomendations for maintenance and bedding in?

What were they again. I genuinely only recall the "no players, ours or others, have complained"  line. Of s=course I am not helped by the fact thaover a month after the AGM I have seen no report of it on the club website.

I said the Club did not give ADEQUATE reasons for the pitch being in such a horrendous condition - if they are blaming the weather and lack of sunlight they are flying a kite! 
The weather and sunlight are no worse than last winter where the pitch was in good condition. We also did not cover the pitch with lights last winter.

The question that needs to be answered is whether the Club have maintained the pitch in accordance with instructions for a hybrid pitch - I get the feeling they will stonewall on that.

Thanks. I had for some reason forgotten the "reasons" given.

At least the claim the absence of seats was due to the weather (and shipping delays) was withdrawn in about 24 hours!

Just for context, the players also complain about the pitch, it’s no just fans.
