    Trying to get into PBS

    That was a shambles trying to get into the PBS. Kettling fans to get through one narrow gate. Then so many allowed in then kept in a wee holding pen to try get through 8 turnstiles. I feared for young kids and thought there was going to be a serious incident

    It was suggested that was done to avoid a bigger problem which would have been caused by letting everyone through at once.
    Clearly safety issues there.

    I agree, it was dangerous tonight. Kettling punters over uneven surfaces with bollards etc. Just to get into the ground felt like a step back to the eighties. Not sure what the point of the line of horse cops was? Polis Scotland trying to create an incident to prove a point?

    Whatever it is, that ground needs sorted out and the bizzies need to do their job of protecting the public.

    Told a polisman my opinion after getting in he apologetically said ‘there’s not enough turnstiles..’
    Arrived at ground about 720 and missed first five mins, joke

    Missed all of this. We were one of the first to get in. The one thing we did see was a wee laddie getting told, actually quite fairly, to go and get something to eat and a coffee before he would be granted entry to the ground.

    I remember seeing him at Brondby away in a similar state. Funny how some folk stick in your memory

    It reminded me of Falkirk, not enough turnstiles to handle a big support arriving at the same time. At least at Falkirk they have a queuing system in place and don't just squeeze everyone into a small area.

    Was totally unacceptable. I can handle myself in large crowds no problem, but there was a lot of scared kids being moved away from parents by the movement of the crowd. Older supporters unsteady on their feet clearly in distress. I'm almost moved to write a letter to the police or hearts, but I know it'll be ignored.

    And the toilet facilities are a shambles too. Negotiate two doors to enter a bog from the 1800's.

    What a totally rank stadium, full of punters watching rank football.

    There's only 6 turnstiles for 3500 folk I suppose that's enough as they only usually give away supports 1500 ticcets. We got in after our "goal", even the Penelopes were unhappy with the arrangements. Total shambles of a stadium.

    I thought you were just trying to keep your hands warm.
    Uncomfortable now.

    I'm always unsteady on my feet. I wasn't THAT distressed.

    To be fair, you told everyone around you that your bladder was about to burst and fear of getting a Gary Locke special meant you getting a pretty clear path to the bogs.
    1875 may snigger at my rubber boxers with the 'emergency bottle' but I bet you wished you were in my pants last night.


    What I've written there may not be exactly what I meant to suggest.

    Chances of it not being a shambles again this Sunday? Was there 40 minutes before kick-off last time and still missed Shaw's "goal"!

    Did the fans' reps ever get a response from Foundation Plaza on this?

    Sure they said it was going to be addressed with the Bus Shelter FC?

    I'm also waiting a response from Tracey when I asked that she raise with the board the need to request more tickets from those filthy fukn Huns.

    normally go with my 80 year old dad, he doesn't have a ticket for sunday ( think last away derby he missed was when Joe Mcbride scored two late goals in 1985 ) which might be for the best after that shambles outside last time, at least approach won't be in total darkness on sunday..

    Hope he gets a ticket to experience a great day with you.
