Gutted to miss this, I arranged months ago to meet up with my sister on 31st as I've not seen her since June 2020.

Yet another season with no home friendlies.

Here's hoping the ticket platform glitches have been sorted by now. It could prove a very entertaining morning for all the wrong reasons otherwise.

I think I'd prefer to pull stitches from my gums or have surgical staples removed from my head (again) than endure that ticket portal.

I'd have been quite happy to sort the site designers mind glitches with a baseball bat when sorting the season tickets. Vexed in advance.

Having a nightmare with this ticket site. Accessed via laptop today so no phone issues.

Got onto the ticket site via my logged into account. No seating plan but there's a list of available blocks.

Click on block and choose two tickets which I can't allocate. Go to basket but I can only have one ticket.

Go to pay and have the option to allocate so I allocated it to my son and went back to the ticket site to buy one in my name but computer says no as I have a ticket in the basket.

Go to pay. My order is still being processed after 20 minutes! Been calling the ticket office since 10:05 to see if I can buy them over the phone while online.

Call queue constantly full. Think I may knock away games on the head for this season. I'm not going through this level of hassle every fuggin game.

Finally sorted both tickets about half an hour ago, ironically enough online via by mobile phones.

Managed to buy mine via Android but the site repeatedly refused to let me allocate a ticket to my son's name via my account.

Following numerous attempts to allocate one for the lad via laptop I used my son's iPhone to buy a ticket through his own account.

Both of our accounts are linked across the site and we're both on each other's friends and family list.

What a shambles of a ticket platform. As for the phone lines I lost count of the amount of times the automated voice told me the call queue was full over the course of an hour and twenty minutes.

We've both received confirmation emails. Let's see whether the tickets arrive in time for the game. BOING bloody BOING.

Managed to get tickets for my first ever trip to St Andrews. Would be nice if we could add another signing to the squad before Saturday but not looking likely, so will settle for Clarke, Mowatt and Castro.

Do what Albion90 says.  Just refresh and put your login details in and it should sign you in even though you havent had an email saying account registered.
