Millions of fans? We were told that by Gourlay. They don’t pay to get thru’ the gate – but that doesn’t matter. It’s all about the brand. I can accept ‘the brand’, and FFP rules, but ffs let’s get our Bridge back.
The stadium was like a morgue. And it was full of tourists and twice-a-seasoners.
I recognised about half a dozen season tkt holders around me, out of about the closest 100 people.
The east middle was about 10% full. That is a corporate area that has cup games included in their season tkts, unlike the rest of us. BUT they were asked to pay for this game. They didn’t. They all boycotted the game. I didn’t, it cost me about £150 for my 3 tkts, pre-match ‘nothing much’ and fuel. Crap evening. No wonder no fkkr goes. No atmosphere. Team looked lack-lustre. It was sh1t.
Serves gourlay right. I wonder if the message is getting across…?
I can see why some just do away games.
Unfortunately I think we’ve passed the point of no return. The prices have aliented the working man who would give an atmosphere to the club. The hoards of foreigners I was looking at last night were more interested in taking photos than anything else. I’m not joking – I am not.
Fkn two-bob cup. Everyone’s bought Amsterdam flights – booked on the strength of their 2-0 first leg. Last night they go and lose on pens. We’ve got fkn Bucharest next, in a shite cup. Flights are expensive. Fkn hell. Shit everything.
It wouldn’t be so bad if the team looked like they were giving some effort. There was no atmosphere last night. Loads and loads of tourists with cameras. Ground was 80% full. Sh1t atmosphere. In fact, there wasn’t one.
The whole evening was a subdued type of ambiance. A ‘go through the motions’ game. Like both teams were 12th and 13th in the league for the last game of the season, and no matter what the result the positions didn’t change. Yes, there were some attempts on goal, but it still felt like the team wasn’t really bothered. No-one sang a song as most of the people in the ground didn’t know any as they weren’t real fans. Season tkt holders spoke with their feet.
Gourlay must get these attendance stats & figures. They cannot put prices up at the Bridge. It will empty.
