Especially when you see 60k at Wembley last night.

My main issue is that Sturgeon was happy to guarantee 25% at Hampden but 1.5 months on, clubs are having to beg to have 10%. 

Suppose she can't pretend to have any interest in Hibs vs Dundee or whatever and do daft tweets, knowing full well she's going to shaft football fans first chance she gets.

Yes because it's her coming up with these figures not any scientific guidance she has relied on from the start.

Hopefully get the nod , hibs asked for 6k for the arsenal game on Tuesday to be refused and told 2k will have to do . Despite 16.5k being at murrayfield less than 2 weeks ago 

Ridiculous decision. Makes you believe football fans will be shat on again from a great height.

I’d love to know what scientific guidance gives you

25% of capacity on games shown around the world unless you get hosting the games taken off you. A few weeks after not being able to have any fans at all in our national cup final. In the city that at the time was the worst hit in Scotland infections wise.

And the scientific guidance where one stadium can have 25% capacity for a game of rugby whereas the the same city only allows 10% for a football friendly. 
 

There is nothing “scientific” about those decisions.

It does seem pretty clear now the utter disdain Sturgeon has for your average football fan and football club, away from the glare of publicity (EUROS)

She has no idea, or just doesnt care, what it means to fans and what it brings to the local economy and communities. She has made a massive fuck up here.

I agree there is no logic to it but to say its her decision alone is crazy and this she hates football fans nonsense is laughable. So she hates football fans, pub goers, theatres, festivals, night clubs, gyms, etc then? Let's hope there isn't a large increase in under 30's being hospitalised, she'll be the 1st to get slaughtered for not being strict enough.

What’s that got to do with crowds allowed in football stadiums?

A large number of this age group attend football matches. 

You must be aware of that. 

Supporters buses, trains, pubs young team singing and chanting.?

People also have to travel to attend rugby matches and probably have a few pints beforehand. Yet it’s 25% of stadium. And football isn’t. If there was ever a sign that football fans are second class citizens in this country then that’s it right there.

I see Hibs are getting 2,000 tickets for motherwell on Saturday. That’s very promising for fans. 

That mean total attendance will be 3122 then 😜

3700 at killie v them.

season ticket holders only.

no away fans

Looking forward to this match, its a pity more fans can't get in but I suspect the 3700 will sound more like 10k against your bitter rivals.
