Motherwell At Home In Scottish

7.20pm on a Saturday night is downright weird.

We will have less than 2500 fans there. You have my word on that one.

7.30pm on a Saturday is just not right

Less than 2,000 of us there I reckon. Total attendance south of 2,750.

Opportunity for club to do a deal with Motherwell for cheap ticket price - assume some cash from tv? Otherwise yes a low crowd.

TV cash is well down on what it used to be for this, it was previously a bit of a money spinner but there were a few complaints in the lower leagues about it giving some teams a massive financial advantage if they got lucky with a draw (IIRC Albion Rovers had a couple of years with favourable draws that set them up for a decade easily). They put the money back in the pot for all prize money and now give you a nominal fee - can't find it but think it's £20-30k at most unless it's changed recently.

Hopefully enough to cover crowd losses from TV hopefully and we can do something reasonable with pricing. It's embarrassing seeing us on TV in front of empty stadiums in this competition, it used to be a good occasion.

Motherwell normally good with there fans for pricing.....

Hopefully sensible pricing or we are looking at a horrendous crowd if especially results don’t pick up.

What makes TV companies pick 7:20 on a Saturday night in the middle of January after probably an expensive festive period for the fans; and who amongst the blazers thinks this is a good way to promote the game? When you agree to sup with the devil I suppose....
