I crawled under the barriers in the puddles then along the front of the terracing to get to spot I usually stand if its raining. Fortunately I had a decent pair of walking boots on.

I think we're only going to increase crowds markedly if the ground is redeveloped. There is a section of the support who, like me, prefer standing in all kinds of crap to watch the team. But if you want to sit the main stand isn't exactly the most comfortable and reminds me of Morton's stand.

I was impressed with Falkirk's supporters bar which welcomed home and away fans and general setup in their South Stand recently. Something similar has to be the way ahead.

i think the covering of the north terrace is all that would be needed to appease the majority who stand there, the views arent great from some points but nobody seems bothered.

Id disagree slightly with the Falkirk bar model in that 3 for a can of tennents lager is not going to attrract that many if it hadnt been in the middle of nowhere, agree there is money to be made in having a bar, but it has to be a proper one with draught beer & spirits.

The Falkirk one was also like drinking in a works canteen....

At Firhill I was looking at the stand opposite us and was thinking how good it would be to have something like that where the north terrace is.

Would not cost the world to cover the north terrace,it would also look great.

I think it goes back to uplift in supporters - a stand with some facilities (bar/gym) would go a long way to improving fan experience and might get extra folks through the gates. A roof over the terrace would be great and would cost a lot less but not sure it would lead to an uplift in folks through the gates.

I don't believe either is on the horizon or we even have the money
