700+ tickets sold for tomorrow. Fair play to us all again 👏

Tremendous for a midweek fixture and that distance tbh. Great to see loads of buses back on the road and heading here, there & everywhere again after Covid. 

As far as I can see that’s Elliots, FSA, Roman Bar & Cheerz all running tomorrow night. Any others?

True. I get the concern but is it worth 2 or 3 pages?  

There are green shots of recovery and we all know it’s a rebuild.

What I didn’t notice on Saturday was our captain wearing a rainbow armband. Delighted to see that. 

Didn’t notice him wearing that either. That is good to see. 

First match I’ve been to since Hibs and really enjoyed it again. Looking forward to tomorrow too. 

One thing that was a bit frustrating was I couldn’t pay by card at the turnstile. My fault for turning up late but waited in the queue then had to go to the shop to buy a ticket which was busy so missed the first 7 minutes. 

Is that a hangover from the Clarke Epos deal? Also does anyone know if it’s being sorted? Will save an email if so as wasn’t the only one who got foiled by this.

On another note Stephen Kingsley was ahead of me in the queue at the shop. Must’ve been having a word with McCann as he was excellent(as was the rest of the team right enough!).

Never been able to pay by card at the turnstile mate. Always been ST card or cash.

Surely something to consider then as I barely carry cash these days and sure I’m not the only one. See buskers with card machines now and the wee stall outside the stadium had one so must be pretty viable to include one at the turnstiles?

WIth '700+' sold as of this evening and the club shop opening early tomorrow until 4pm, I'd like to think we'd perhaps hit around the 900 mark. We're some fucking bunch, eh? #crowdwank 

Dundee fans saying their will be a PATG option tomorrow too but doesn’t seem to be communicated yet.

Would be ideal if we could move the likes of Ross, Wilson and Sneddon on before the window closes to give us some room if a bit of quality became available on loan later in September. 

I doubt if their combined wages would pay for one leg of a quality signing.

Sheerin paid a fee for Ross and he relocated so won’t be on buttons

Rawlins / Patrons investment. We also took a 50k bounce back loan 

Thanks, trying to get my head round from the reported +800K last season, with the added external investment ie Rawlings/Patrons and the now reported anticipated losses of 300/400K.

Last year the club also had cash reserves which I presume are now used up partly covering the previous years loss. The projected loss this year is much smaller but will still have to be funded somehow. The BOD seem to have a target based plan to close the funding gap but everybody needs to be pulling in the same direction to make it happen, fans need to come out in good numbers and also the uptake in the FSS needs to grow. The team doing well bringing in prize money via cup competition and increased revenue from regular crowds which are higher than originally budgeted for obviously helps chip away at it as well.

Would have to disagree with this one - Option to buy online and download to your device removes the need for payment at the turnstiles. 

I think you potentially introduce a bottleneck if you allow card payment at the point of entry.
