have to mention the poor stewarding yesterday which caused a completely avoidable altercation or two. Our party presented our tickets to a steward for checking but were told just to go and to sit anywhere, which we did. Just prior to kick off two guys appeared and asked us to move as we were in their seats. We explained what we had been instructed to do but they weren't happy, understandably so. The situation was resolved amicably though when we moved along one seat to accommodate them. All was well that ended well as far as that was concerned. As some of you will have witnessed, one punter turned up very late and demanded his ticketed seat right behind the goal. He then argued with a steward for what seemed like hours before he got his seat. I felt sorry for the fans in the row immediately behind him who no doubt hardly saw a thing for several minutes. No doubt there were more such incidents, which could have have caused totally avoidable trouble. Now I don't know what stewards were told beforehand; maybe our steward just got it wrong, but such things shouldn't happen.
It was a farce. We had 6 tickets together (inc 2 x kids) ended up in various rows in close proximery, wasn't the end of the world but when the stands virtually sold out it would be far easier (especially with the queue to get in at turnstiles etc and people turning up after ko) for everyone to know where there gonna get a seat, particularly those arriving in larger groups. That said we didn't make an issue of it but there was plenty of aggro around us. Sit where you likes fine at Pitodrie midweek but not ideal at a virtual sell out.
