Two draws last season home & away so maybe not as clear cut - you did win 3 nil late in the season but our lot had chucked in the towel at that point

We will likely only get the main stand at Firhill. It only holds just over 2000 so prepare for plenty moaning and begging over LPs.

Did you not call this on Sunday?

Think I mentioned this and potentially Easter Road. Love going to Firhill though, barring the twin arse cheeks drawing each other it couldn't be better!

Had hoped we'd end up with an away Highland tie as I'm based in Inverness.

 

Partick is always appealing to me. It's my favourite Weegie game but then I'm biased. My Great-Grandfather is in The Jags Hall of Fame having been in the 1921 Cup Winning side. After he left Thistle he moved to Edinburgh to be the Janny at the Vicky Baths in Leith. Despite living in Leith he was a proud Jambo and so started our family tradition of supporting the Famous.  

We still have his Winners medal and a letter from the Chairman of Shitebernian FC offering a contract to join them.  I am so proud that my Great-Grandfather coined the phrase FTH almost 100 years ago

One of the extremely few times I could actually stomach a Hibs win, if we get through of course.

Seems like the Vermin's easy passage to Cup Finals has been cancelled by their Tic Overlords, in retribution over McGinn.

Almost a perfect draw, home tie would’ve been better though. Need to be on our A game at firhill Partick caused us a bit of bother last season in our first couple of ties.

Getting married on the Saturday so a wee shift to the Sunday would make it a fine weekend for this Glasgow based Jambo. 

 

Might still be able to make a late kick off on the Saturday though.

Good draw for us. Would’ve rather we got it at Tynie but we can’t have everything.

About 2,400 tickets

Googled their ground says that original capacity of the colin weir stand was 6000 but reduced 

to about 3000  dunno how that works but less now.

the jackie husband stand holds 6263 and the north stand (partick singing section ) holds 2014 , cant see them

selling over 8000 tickets.

You’ve got to think this one will go to Loyalty Points. 

 

Short of Thistle giving us the big stand, we’ll shift every ticket for this one.

That 0-0 in 2005 was the coldest I had been at a game ever.  Bought a daft wee pair of gloves out a corner shop on the way to the ground and was tempted to stay in the pub before it.  Remember that big LUMP Armand One they had up front.

It will certainly be that, mate. We will shift them all but We could be a Monday night game which will slow the stampede, so to speak.

The same stuff arises in these situations about TV. Don't like it myself, when you think back to some cracking SC QFs at Tynecastle...or away !

I suppose it is what it is but still think it dilutes the feeling of the whole thing.

Anyhoo, high LP threshold to start !

By going to the Livi and Talbot cup games as well as a few other league home games you'll probably have enough LP's.

 

Tough titties to the stay away from earlier round brigade.

I remember skipping school for the ‘74 replay because it was played in the afternoon due to power strikes so no floodlights were allowed to be used.

My one LP that I have, may not be enough. I've resigned myself to the fact I'll be watching it on the TV. :(

 

 

 

Considering I don't live in Scotland, I've probably still got one LP more than some, who'll be trying for Semi tickets should we progress.

Unless Thistle give us the biggest stand or give us the main stand plus the stand behind the goal we are looking at a high LP requirement.

I would guess about 80pts needed if our normal allocation applies.

Yes on paper it looks good but these are the cup games I fear most.

 

Not me. I fear the better teams more. I consider myself privileged to have been there to see us beat Celtic at Hampden in 2012, as more often than not, we lose that game.

If we get an allocation of 2000 the threshold will be 60-80 loyalty points.

I think I remember the 1974 games! The replay was at Maryhill in either a Tuesday or Wednesday AFTERNOON! Huge crowd c. 14,000, majority were Hearts fans! 

PS evening matches were banned due to power shortages hence a midweek afternoon!!

I still think we’d shift our allocation if the game was moved to the Monday night. 

 

You'd be more likely to see a general sale in that instance, but I doubt they’ll shift our game for TV.

Partick have shown in the past that they’re quite willing to shift their own fans out of whatever the big stand is at Firhill when the Old adorn rock up. 

 

Decently priced tickets would see us easily shift a good 5 or 6 thousand.

Im only on 79 points...but if history is anything to go by.....loads will be said about points and tickets but everyone that wants one will get one I think, they will move the home support around to suit, not going to turn money away if we can fill a stand or two

I can remember being at that 1984 tie.    Not the game though.    The 1994 tie as well.    Mo Johnston got the goal.    It was the tie before the Wayne Foster tie at Shitesville.

I reckon we'll get the old stand plus the one behind the goals. That's about 4k?

What’s wrong with a cheeky offer to switch the tie to Tynie, more money for Thistle?!

If it’s at a wierd time (Sunday morning or Monday night) we’ll get the usual 2500 and there’ll be scramble for them.

 

We will never get the wee stand at the end cos they always keep it for their ‘choir’

 

But if it is a Friday night or an afternoon KO HMFC should push for the big stand and we’ll sell 5000 no problem imo

Our cup crowds have been much better recently.

Can't have been that many ST holders who haven't turned up for cup ties recently.

Compared to some clubs our fans have been top notch.

We are going to need more than the usual allocation to meet demand.

It depends what appetite the home support have for this match.

The pricing will have a big impact on demand from the home support .

The 'money spinner' replay will be at Tynecastle anyway. Not fair to have both legs in Edinburgh.

Agree our support has been excellent for the 2 home ties...well priced which helps....but there's been a few on here saying they won't pay extra for cup games ...but will be 1st in line to get tickets because of their lps when it gets to latter stages of the cup and walk up fans who have contributed to the cup crowds will be left on the sidelines...not every supporter can be a season ticket holder for whatever reason.......but supporters who have been at both cup games should get a chance to buy tickets also....
