I'll never forget that semi. Wife was in labour, I was watching the game on a portable in the corner as the midwives were dealing with her drip and other stuff. Daughter was born less than hour after the final whistle.

Sevco getting the whole of the North Stand is as good a reason for not going as I can imagine.

Correct. We've been thinking about this one for a few days and have decided not to go. Normally have a full bus load. Not this year.

Snap.

The Scottish media will make a big thing of this if the Aberdeen fans fail to buy their allocation of the tickets but who cares anymore. Fans of other clubs have to stand up against this total disregard for all clubs in Scottish Football apart from the Glasgow Two.

Our club may suffer but they want a strong Sevco in the Scottish Premiership.

It'd be good if you - and others - wrote to the club letting them know yer reasons.

We should have got the whole of the North stand and one of the ends, they should have got the larger South and most of the other end. Then we could return by section in the shared end. We don't have enough seats with a proper view. We're being discriminated against. For not being weegie cunts.

There were 43,000 at Red Parkhead but it sounds we may struggle to see half that for this semi.

I reckon the biggest factor is most of us thought we would win that final but most think we will lose this.

Yep, I'd agree. Longevity since we were in a final, and the fact it was a final, too.

That shouldn't preclude us from being treated the same as our opponents though.

There is an argument that rather than 50/50, the ticket allocation should be shared based on the proportion of how many season tickets each club sells.

I look forward to them trying to implement that policy if it ends up being an OF final....

But there's a bigger argument for it being a neutral venue so all clubs participating should have a 50/50 split available to them unless they choose otherwise.

There is. It would be perfectly hunnish like.

I have no problem with the dons giving back tickets either, and expect them to do so. I do have an issue with being given a second rate viewing experience in comparison to the opposition in a neutral venue. I hope everyone refuses to buy seats in the East stand.

The SFA/SPFL and all the Scottish Media are praying for a Sevco V Celtic Cup final.

Let's just hope that Aberdeen V Hearts can do Scottish Football a favour and contest the Betfred Cup Final.

Yip. We are at an obvious disadvantage anyway due to distance etc, but if we were flying and the huns were struggling, we would get a substantially bigger crowd than we're going to. Most of the people who post on here will be going, all things being equal etc, but for the people who dip in and out of football supporting - a lot of the folk at ParkRed, for example - it just won't do for them.

There'll also be those who have the view; "late kick off time, everyone's going to be steaming, it'll be carnage" (and we all pray that is indeed the case), and it'll put them off.

It's been 18 years since we last played a team called R*ng*rs at Hampden.  And we certainly owe them one from that day. Bring it on.
It's not about escaping. It's about getting out with a bit of dignity.
If you're in it, don't fucking moan about it, make it yours and leave a mark

Well put as ever Bobby. I hope McInnes has the intelligence to try and use that day to motivate.
