Noticed on Hambone that Hickey was wearing number 51.  Surely that alone should guarantee 15,000 sales.

Is section X available to fans?? Sat in x for years and loved ours seats until last year we were advised they wanted to take over the section for hospitality so we moved to P but didn’t like it much especially proximity to away fans. changed back to Y this year. I presumed all of X was hospitality now or has this changed again certainly never looked that busy last year for a lot of games

Very good sales given the season we've just had. Surprisingly good. 

 

We have a fantastic support. It's been dreary of late but I'm already excited for what's to come next season. If you're swaying about renewing or perhaps buying a ST for the first time, and can afford to.. just get it done. Mon' the hearts!

2 more renewed yesterday. Wanted to move seats but couldn't be bothered buying and then having to go through the moving process so just bought the new seats online yesterday. Don't know how much of a message it sent to Ann about the delay in buying but fingers crossed for a more successful league campaign next time round

It used to be said that our hardcore fan base even when things were shit was 6,000-7,000.

 

I think that was true as recently as around 13-15 years ago.

 

Can we now saying that that hardcore fan base is now consolidating around c. 11,000?

well done everyone, that's actually really impressive. Maybe goes to show as well that there have been a lot of threads about hearts and management and positions and football - but supporting hearts doesn't mean we have to support every decision, every signing, every player, every result - the fans make the team not the players. Well done all, looking forward to another season of football

I’d agree with that I think. I remember sitting there with a black balloon protesting about the proposed sale of Tynecastle, and there didn’t seem to be much of a crowd. Fast forward a few years and we were selling out Tynecastle to keep the lights on when in administration.

Can't actually remember the opponents. It was a less than optimistic and defiant crowd though. Bad, bad times. Contrast that to the bullish determination and the way we rallied in the administration period. The game v St Mirren where we needed to sell out.

Sure there was a save our hearts march from Saughton park before the black balloon game.

 

It was a very grim period. I actually felt lower during those days than I did at any point during administration. Don’t know if that’s a personal thing, a bit younger then etc, but I can vividly remember the feeling of hopelessness as losing Tynecastle Park was a stark reality.

 

Horrible, dark days.

Not sure what constitutes hardcore, but we never got less than 10k for a league match 15 years ago. In 2003-4, our lowest crowd was our first game in the cup (v Berwick), 8,500.

I'd say you have to go back to pre 85-86 days to go as low as 6k-7k die-hards.

 

Equally, I'd say 11,000 is conservative for the current figure.

Nope, you deluded monster. It's 10-15% less than the previous season.

That would make it 837 in the first week purely on the basis of the dot count.

 

If @The Gasman was correct in suggesting that the club hadn't counted the seats reserved for financing when they first announced the 10,500 figure last Monday, then the first week's sales were probably closer to 1,175.

 

However, given that the "financing" seats would normally have been sold during the renewal period, the 837 would be a more representative figure for sales when comparing with previous seasons.

 

My running sales estimate is now at 11,432, with the club's figure (including wheelchairs and hospitality?) at 11,657.

Didn't do the walk. I lived opposite the stadium at the time. Agree with how you describe the atmosphere though. Despondency and helplessness are the words I would use to describe how I felt, and what I felt from others’ demeanours. 

 

When we went in to admin min it was totally different. I felt like it was hard, but we had been offered an alternative to rally behind. Bought shares and tickets, put money in to fundraisers and then FoH from day one. Didn’t feel anything like as desperate as when Robinson tried to sink us.

another 343 to hit 12k then. My guess is as they slow down we will make that around the end of the month

No doubt the answer will be on this thread but are tickets for new ST holders just sent out?  I got an adult and an U13 and while the confirmation email states 'proof of ID for U13 may be required' it doesn't actually say for sure and there's no mention of the next steps. 

 

Not a big deal but thought I'd ask in case someone knew. We had STs in the championship season but can't remember if I had to pick them up and show proof of age for the wee man. 

 

Cheers.

It was even worse than that - 80-81 of thereabouts we very often had less than 4,000 in the ground! Changed days. Think that was the season we got dumped out of the Scottish Cup at home by Forfar and John Fairgreave, a fine sports writer, called for Tynecastle to be concreted over and used as a car park.

Can mind one game (Killie if I recall) ,nearing the end of the season, where we had already been relegated and all of us at the School End laying out on the terracing at half-time to sunbath. I mind being pissed off having to stand up for the 2nd half cos both the ****ers infront of me stood up for the game.  Bassas !!

Plenty of room for a game of fives if we'd wanted. Several games all at the same time, in fact. Least it only took about a minute to get out of the ground at the end?

There was a march yes. in fact it was that day I decided to call my brother in Germany and try to get him to record a version of the Hearts song, runrig style with guitars and pipes. I sent him a copy of the Macrae's batallion book to inspire him. Basically he told me it was a crap idea (he was probably right) but the book inspired him to write Hearts of Glory.

 

The march was fairly low key, but the fans weren't wholly united at the time as we all knew things were bad but there wasn't one idea for how to change things (for example I thought we should start a fund to purchase a stadium should we go bust, but was in a small minority with that one).  Bad times but out of those desperate days the Foundation grew.

John Fairgrieve chaired (or presented at) a meeting at I think what became the West End club (might have been the Liberal Club then) to try and save Hearts who were clearly in big trouble financially. I went along but have only hazy memories (probably pissed)
