    Yesterdays rather hefty attendance 17,634

    Brilliant crowd:

    Biggest crowd against Partick Thistle at home since 1/12/79 when 20,622 pitched up to see Hibs win 2-1, goals from Ally McLeod & an own goal.

    If you exclude the game above (which was a bumper attendance due to the home debut of George Best) , it's the biggest home league crowd v Partick since the 30K which pitched up in 1957.

    It's also our biggest opening day league crowd at Easter road since the Souness game in 1986 of 21,674

    Tremendous atmosphere inside Easter Road yesterday. Loved how the crowd rallied behind the team when we lost a goal. Hope yesterday persuaded anyone who hasn't yet bought a season ticket to buy one.

    I have to say I was a little disappointed!

    I thought there would be more but I suppose there was still a lot of folk on holiday and the usual season ticket holders absent for all sorts of reasons although I think I'm right in saying Hibs now count all paid tickets.

    I think it puts people off when they start all the "nearing sell out, 1000 tickets left" stuff. Try saying plenty for everyone, just get yourself along.

    I would also like to know if that's the case as well.

    I thought it strange the number of empty seats in sections around the ground that were said to be sold out? They can't all be on holiday or busy doing other things?

    The way all the reports were going I thought we were heading for a 19,000 plus crowd. Especially when they had to start selling tickets to Hibs fans for the South Stand. Even so a 17,600 crowd for an opening day fixture against Partick Thistle is a phenomenal attendance.

    Watching on Alba yesterday my Gunt dad commented 'a lot of empty seats' enjoyed telling him the attendance was more than their 'stadium' capacity when they had seats.
