I do agree - it might need a wee bit of snazzy progamming but surely it is possible for next year to have the system not allow you to leave a single seat except at the sides until there are no pairs available.? ie you wouldn't be able to buy one in the middle of three which were available?

 

 

Pretty basic you'd have thought 

 

In theory, if everyone renews then it's hard to grow your numbers as it's almost all single seats that would be available. 

Pretty much rules out a family. 

Mates might just split up but you can't fire your 8 year old son 30 seats away from you. 🙄

Not sure the relevance of the self satisfied, smug smile tbh. In July 2017 we announced that sales were 300 short of 14k, being the record total from 16/17. AB's target in 2017 was to increase the ST base to 14.2k. I'm sure she will feel that losing circa 1k ST holders since she appointed Levein, was not part of the business plan. Sales are certainly higher than I, and others, expected, and that is all credit to those who renew, but our potential is not being realised . When a new manager, from outwith the club, is appointed, the ST base will start to increase.

Enzo, we know you hate Levein with a passion but you’re not taking all factors for the anticipated drop into account. 

 

One big big thing you’ve conveniently ignored to suit your agenda is that season ticket holders from the old stand could renew in the new stand with no increase. This has been staggered but now I think they have to pay full whack which is a big increase. 

 

Although sales are down, our income is up and that must be a positive. At least for Hearts fans without a burning hatred for the manager.

I thought we were comparing to last year though? You've moved the goalposts.


I do agree though that we would have wanted more, and we surely would have had more had we not fallen away on the pitch once the injuries kicked in. However, around 13,000 is a great base, and more than almost everyone (including happy clappers like me) were predicting.

 

So can't we just be happy about that and get back to this being a thread about counting the seats sold, not how many might or should have been sold?

What a positive number in light of the indifferent season we had.  Forget those who said the numbers would be down, the continued backing by the fans is the real story.

 

Great username btw 👍

We are one of the few teams in Scotland whose fans stick by the team through thick and thin. It is sad that other fans think thousands of fans will not renew after a few average seasons. It is sort of chat you expect from Hibees.

 

Cheers mate 👍

I still think the single seats are a problem as well, not many pairs left in the 3 stands. 

 

More so as if folk renew, the single seats are still an issue season after season. 

Spot on.

Positive news about Hearts does not make Enzo happy. He needs to find a negative angle in everything.

People who quote one of my, and others posts, from about 3 months ago, with a smarmy, self satisfied, smug attachment, shouldn't be surprised when actual facts are presented to them. I have already stated that sales have been surprisingly high, but the 1k + drop since the new stand opened will certainly concern AB, even if it doesn't cut any ice with you.

I'm have already stated the 1k + drop since the new stand opened wasn't also evident last year, even though it was, then I made a claim that sales would drop substantially more this year which has proven as factually incorrect as possible, but my inflated self importance can't bear to acknowledge how certifiable my prediction was, nor did it prevent me from shitting all over a thread about season tickets with endless sack Levein diarrhea while making that prediction.

 

Tidied this up a bit. With actual facts.

That's not what happened with Hibs. Was down on the same time last year I think read at end June, despite the new manager apparently having a good end to the season.

 

We're a team that can always pull a good season out of the hat no matter who the manager is and no matter how we did the previous season. That's why people keep coming back. No-one wants to miss that good season.

People come back so they can meet their mates for a beer on a Saturday afternoon. It certainly isn't to watch any team that Levein puts out. The good seasons coincide, historically, with periods when he is nowhere near our club.

Jings. A lot* of Hearts fans will completely disagree with you. Craig Levein. Part of the 85/86 team. More than that, one of the people who helped drag the club back from the depths in the early 80s. That's twice he's done that now by the way. Mainstay of our all-conquering Tennents Sixes team. Ever present in our record 22 in a row derby run. Virtually unbeatable in derbies with him as player and manager. Part of the team that was within a post's width of getting to a UEFA Cup semi final. Manager for the one and only time we qualified for the Europa League group stages. The only Hearts manager in recent memory to make us best of the rest twice in a row. DoF when we escaped admin and won the championship and got into Europe within 2 seasons. 

 

*All

Aye. People shell out up to £500 to meet up with their mates for a beer.

You've already made an idiot of yourself a number of times on this thread and now you're latching on to this  1k down as a comfort blanket over and over again . 

Lets just wait until the season starts and see where the numbers are and even that may not  be that relevant if revenue is up .

Aye, all shite when he's about. 

 

Rebuilding the whole club and pissing the championship over rangers and Hibs was shite. 

 

22 in a row was shite 

 

Being a league challenger was shite. 

Beating teams like bayerm, a Madrid were shite. 

Getting to the europa league stages is shite. 

Even last years start and making our first final in 6 years was shite. 

2x 3rd place finishes was shite. 

 

The 4-0 win v celtic was particularly shite. Hated that game. 

 

 

All shite.

When I started this thread it was as a rallying call and it still is. 

 

For those how didn’t/will not renew until Levein is gone then what the hell is wrong with you?!?!?  As I stated you buy to support the club not the manager. Levein is in situ and will not be moving oh and by the way, I was the one who started the ‘Levein’s time is up’ thread back in February so I’m not his biggest fan. 

 

We we have had some truly awful managers but the team and club are always there. For the love of **** we were at a cup final and semi final last year. We came very close in the final and ran the best team in the country, with a budget 5/6 times of ours, very close and only lost to cheating bar stewards dive and 1 switch off in concentration over 90 minutes. 

 

If you want to progress then the club needs your hard earned.

I'm sure some people would be happy to move along one or two seats in order to make more blocks of seats available.

Maybe something the club could look at for next season

Scary that the demons sell more than all the other clubs put together, bar sevco.

 

Something to throw into the mix in the Euro threads when people say they don’t want them, and others, to win as they would earn more money !

 

In the demons’ case, that argument amounts to **** all !

They make those millions anyway.

Correct. I mentioned the 27 July figure in my earlier post. So, you agree that 13.7 - 12.7 (19 July) is a like for like decrease of 1k?  There isn't really that much to disagree with, however hard you try. We sold a few hundred more, after 27 July 2017 and will probably do the same again this year.
