    This, like you say probably season ticket holders in the first instance and then you have the added overheads of having people on the ground. Even if it was a percentage of paying customers allowed in that extra ticket price starts getting eaten into by the extra overheads. Maybe to a point that PPV is actually making you the same if not more? 
    Mind you I do think other clubs have underpriced their PPV.....
    From a saints point of view given our deals on family's etc v £17.50 for PPV, how much are we really down income wise purely in ticket income given on an average gate we probably have ~ 2000 paying customers? Not all paying full price? Does that then actually average out at 2000 around the £17.50 mark? Are we pulling in that many or more on PPV?
    It would be nice to see a PPV 'attendance' just to see what the uptake is actually like.

    Dave H reacted to Linky in Saints v county   
    I’ve said it before, but we used to pack out the midfield and stop other teams getting into a rhythm. We’re now packing out the central defence & trying to play everything on the wings. It’s just not working. Our strikers (all 3 of them) are just onlookers.
    It worries me that we are sticking to the system, rather than changing our tactics to try & beat the team in front of us. Doing the same thing each and every game, no matter the opposition just doesn’t work in modern football.

    Great result & gets us moving up the table & into the break with a boost.
    Was a bit worried about this game as Buddies were getting great press.
    Clancy let the game flow making it a better spectacle than the last 2 games.
    Danny Mac is some player & there is no saying where he will end up in the game. Unfortunately not Saints.
    Conway is looking better by the game & once he gets fitter I think he will be a good addition to the team.
    Thanks Saints you just brightened up my weekend.

    He said something to the ref, wasnt in his face yelling. He walked away and ref then shows a card. No need at all to make a decision like that. Just like the penalty. Pushing and shoving all over the place and looked more like Liam lost his balance after a push against him. No idea why a decision like that was made in what was a very unclear situation.

    Craig??? Really? Thought he looked sluggish and never really got a grip on the game. 
    It always concerns me when a manager in Scottish football talks about a “style” or “philosophy”.
    I don’t think it works in Scottish football. It can definitely be easy on the eye and more entertaining but is very rarely profitable or sustainable. John Hughes, Danny Lennon, Neil McCann and Ian Cathro immediately spring to mind but there have been others.
    Think how many matches Celtic win by just loading the box for the last 15 minutes and grinding out a 1-0.

    We'd get into their half and instead of going forward we kept passing it all the way back to a centre half who would proceed to hoof it up the park!
    What are our tactics exactly?

    As much as Id like the game to go ahead with Aberdeen missing so many key players, this just shouldnt go ahead. Those players that tested positive must surely have been deemed in contact with the whole first team squad. Thats how it works isnt it. Our players are then at risk.

    Just when I thought the Hearts/Partick case had gone awful quiet out comes the news that both clubs have been issued with a Notice of Complaint by the SFA for breaking the rules by going to Court instead of SFA arbitration.  Hearing set for 6th August.
    As the saying goes "that will stop them farting in Church"!
    Gives them plenty of time to enquire about entry to the Northern Premier League Division 1.

    I'm happy Tommy has left in the way it has happened.   All on good terms.   Wouldn't have liked him to get sacked, or to be pinched.   Ive moved on but it was good to hear from him, heard more in that hour than the bbc coverage of the last decade.  The change brings fresh new ideas for a young promising squad.  I think we'll benefit with empty Covid-19 stands ha ha

    Hearts, a Scottish embarrassment.  What is their end game, what do they want?    Played 30, won 4 (four)  Beat Hibs twice, Beat Rangers, beat StMirren.  Couldn't beat anyone else.
    What is the legal action, to be asking to keep playing another round of fixtures as think they can survive?
    Will they ever accept they are the worst side of 19/20 season?

    A bigger top league makes the 2 coming up each season being no way good enough to survive.   Would we be looking at Arbroath potentially challenging to get in the top flight (stadium aint good enough?)  They'd be straight back down.  Only change I would have is bottom 2 go down and scrap playoffs that are massively favoured in the top clubs interest.  Fck Hearts, already bailed them out giving them a donation in the past.

    Crazy that Budge is one of the people given prime responsibility for a reconstruction plan when she only wants reconstruction to save her own club... but part of me thinks she's just been given that to stop her from complaining quite so much. In the end, she can come up with whatever plan she likes, but the clubs would still need to vote for it. The majority of clubs haven't been in favour of a bigger Premier League before, so why would they now? I can't see Saints, for example, voting for any significant structural change.
    For me it's reaching the point where I'm against reconstruction purely as a matter of principal - why should Hearts be allowed to dramatically change the way our entire league system works just to save themselves? If they weren't such an appallingly badly run club then they wouldn't be in this mess in the first place. A club of their fanbase and resources should comfortably be in the Top 6 every single year.
