100%. A lot of folk saying “we must sell all our tickets now or we will look daft” and I couldnae disagree any more. If we don’t sell the tickets then so what? We are putting down a marker here, we are sending a message that we don’t need their money/bile (delete as appropriate). If we cannot take a (small) financial hit when us fans are pumping fortunes into the club, when can we? 
 

We need the space to grow our support. Maybe the likes of St Johnstone and Livingston should start thinking long term

about how to grow their own support, instead of dropping their kegs four times a year for short term gain. 

Absolutely, it should also be about showing we are not prepared to put up with the sectarian bile that is spouted by both sides of the Glasgow teams . Hearst made there intent on this subject quite clear when dealing with our own support however that view was never extended to real problem in the Scottish game. All clubs should be standing up and calling this out , however it seems sadly cash is still king

You seem absolutely raging with anger. Some people don’t take their kids to old firm games. That’s not a myth, it’s a fact. Hope that news doesn’t tip you over the edge. 

Yeah I’m that raging I’ve not been bothered to reply for over 24 hours, are you raging at songs with bad words in them ?

I read an article or watched a YouTube video about the Ghosts maoning. Saying they had 11,000 enquiries. Yeah and they made a big noise, We do not need any away fans to sell out Tynie. I would give them 10 free tickets or they can **** off.

We do, but we certainly don't need to be giving Rangers and Celtic the full Roseburn.

Hope I'm wrong but I think we will go back to normal due to poor sales.

Absolutely no chance, 1000 tickets will become the norm for OF fans, and they will just need to suck it up, you satisfy the demands of your own fans before all others

Hearts and the FOH want this club to grow, and the 

club will never grow or get bigger if you restrict your fan base from attending its biggest matches

Would love to see them restricted to 1,000 every time they come but our support isn’t there, yet, to make that happen. We are currently third in the league with a much better team than the last couple of seasons yet last two home games have had circa 17-17.5k home fans.  We need to find another 1-1.5k for the OF games to make the decision financially justifiable. Not sure where they are going to come from for games that usually have a lower actual home crowd than the other league matches. Hibs game would take care of itself I think.  Thousand fans four times a season is a financial hit of about £100k just in gate money.

Why are tickets not on sale now, did the club not used to put tickets up for sale for matches much further ahead

They should have been on sale at least a week ago.  Especially if we want a sell out.  Seems odd.

This is true. However, if and when we do have ‘difficult’ seasons we will likely not sell enough on our own to fill most of the stadium and will look to sell more to the OF.

Market forces and all that

See The Rangers have 3 stands at livi today, so glad can control their allocation 

 

 

Sitting in your own stadium watching and listening to that must be absolutely soul destroying.

Looks like they've smuggled in a few extra thousand on TV as well, all standing walking around looking for a space and stewards in with them.

Maybe delaying so there is less chance of rangers fan buying tickets in our end? Not sure that would even work but yeah rather silly they aren't on sale yet, it's less than 2 weeks away!

I just hope those that lobbied the hardest for the reduced away fan allocation will now lobby their friends and relatives just as hard to attend, to make up some of the shortfall.

Yes here is hoping. The club have done as the majority of fans have asked them to.

 

I will be buying 2 extra tickets today.

A shortfall v Ranger at Tynie. Never saw that one for a while, even when we were Dugshite Hearts under CL we still sold out.

How will we struggle and need to get friends involved ? Those same friends can't get into the ground as we are selling huge numbers for B gamesbreaking club records. Most of the away sides will get under a thousand tickets. Near 18,000 for the St Mirren game alone.

Come on now , you made a mistake surely. Can only sell tckets when they are available and they are now. We have a run of games coming up in a short space of time, the actual issue will be can walk ups afford to go to so many games before Christmas and New Year.

Selling out shouldn't be an issue as we are just selling the same as we have been doing for most the home games anyway. 

 

Looks like K is being used as segregation.

 

Obviously might get some who won't take their kids, early kick off etc but overall we should be fine.

Good, **** them and **** their sister club celtic.  
 

 

It’s simple, we will give you the stand and happily take your money when we can’t fill the seats ourselves.  As soon as we can fill those seats you can go and **** yourselfs.  The end.

We're not St ****ing Mirren, we don't need to hand over our souls to these pricks just to exist.

Bazzas right boot

I wouldn't give them more even if we could. 

 

In the sc were we beat them 1-0 under Stendel , we could have given them half the stadium. 

 

We should never do that. 

 

In fact it would be funny in a way  to see the seethe if we only gave them the two sections and the rest of the stand was empty. 

 

Covered it with a big flag.

If we do need to put up with their away supports attitude and scuminess, then we reduce them into a small section where they can be abused by the mass home support.

Section N would be ideal but that already has its , cough Brittish support.

You have to have a past history to buy tickets, hopefully none of our lot,who have the same beliefs let’s say, get them tickets. 
I might pop round tomorrow and buy two just to help us sell out.

Aye, they'd get on too well😂😂

 

2 sections is fine. 

 

If we sell put-great. 

If not-tough titties, still 2 sections.

Their behaviour and abusive attitude along with sneaking in, needs to be stopped. Herding them into the smallest area will be the only way to deal with the issues they bring.

Not many seats available in gorgie, wheatfield or main, sporadic single seats mostly. I think well shift the seats in the roseburn no problem.

A big advantage of reducing their allocation is the stewards and police can more easily monitor and control bad behaviour. Far too often in the past the plod refuse to go against them as it would cause a riot, well if causing a riot stops them doing their job then lets get a mob outside the TSB and get some cash for FoH.

Seriously they get away with pelting the ball boys etc and they do nothing, a much smaller crowd means they can't hide.

True, Celtic fans behave like animals at Tynecastle and have history of pelting the ball boys. They even booed the young boys who have a kick about at HT on their lap of honour.

I read that as “petting” the ball boys, spot on though.

Sounds like Rab has done this before?!

 

Should that transpire then whoever is sitting in that vicinity should keep their eyes peeled and get them punted.

 

Also, 'Rab' identified by the club for the purchase and banned.

Never, I’ve had huns sitting beside me over the years who’ve left at HT because of my analytical critique of their very existence 😜
