Only ahead of two artificial surfaces, Hearts who have replaced their pictures and Aberdeen.

Players rated the pitch after a game. I doubt all players took part in it. It is more interesting that those who voted on our pitch didn't deem it very far ahead of some pitch that have been torn up.

Players were asked after the match to rate it out of five. 

Pretty daft to lump every stadium in together, as it should really be split into leagues. 

Surprised McDiarmid was as high, though, hopefully the new pitch is better.

So an 8th place finish is 'high'? :)

When you consider there are two really old plastic pitches below us along with Herats and Aberdeen who were heavily criticised this season it is rather poor.

The only player's opinion about the McDiarmid pitch that matter are Saints.

It looks like the pitch has caused problems ever since the undersoil heating went in. We've spent considerable money on it, last season we invested in heat lamps and it's now been ripped up and regrown for next season. Any ongoing issues are being addressed. Obviously having perceived better pitches than us really helped Thistle and County.

The pitch was a lot better than previous seasons. That may be why our home form was shyte. Perhaps we play better on poor surfaces as the ball is in the air most of the time.

Our pitch has been disgraceful for the last 5 years. I was on it at the end of last season as well as at the end of the previous 4 seasons. I can honestly say it was like a horse had been running around on it. Fair enough it's at the end of a season but I was genuinely shocked the first time.
