  1. Cash out on Bobby???

    Was a mad bet but stay with it mate.
  2. But it's not and very few people have said that it is.
  3. Your underlying point is a reasonable one, clearly that is not their aim. Nevertheless that is exactly what they have achieved and , more concerning, appear to be completely indifferent to the consequences. Not sure that Steve or Jon Lansdown can be considered to be real fans if they are unable to show empathy for the very reasonable points being made about fans faced with the choice of massive price increases or move away from groups they may have sat with for years.
  4. Whoever is responsible for that statement must be a little bit stupid. Clearly, the main issue which most people have is the choice being offered by the club to families of "move where we tell you to or pay massive price increases to stay where you are" and the attitude "we don't really care that you may have to move away from people you have been with for years". Equally clearly, whoever made the statement has not taken that on board in the slightest. All the club had to do was restrict price increases for EXISTING seat holders to the same as everybody else, but increase them to NEW season ticket holders by the amount which they propose. In time as children become adults and/or do not renew their tickets, the club would achieve what they wanted but without causing all this fuss. I'm surprised the SC&T hasn't offered this as a solution, but IMO they should do so. @Dollymarie???
  5. No Burton Tickets

    Ours arrived yesterday. We ordered them online 5 days before the game. To think, somebody actually put tickets for a game played last week into an envelope and posted them this week!!
  6. were you going to Russia?and now changed your mind?

    I've rubbished the post. Not because it isn't correct, but because it is absurd to suggest any relevant significance. Skripal is Russian, but he's nearly dead.
  7. were you going to Russia?and now changed your mind?

    Sympathise with some of what you say Harry, but. Generalising here but South Africans - bar Cape Townonians - are in my experience I agree very arrogant, among other faults, but the one thing South Africa does not try to do is export its unpleasant side. On the other hand anyone that has travelled to Ukraine and the Baltic states, and spoken with the people there, will know that residents there fear Russia and what they think it wants to do - based on recent history let's not forget - to their countries.
  8. Renewed or not renewed. Please post here

    I agree £15 per game is good value, but you are missing the point, presumably because, in your own words, you haven't followed the controversy. The main issue is that the massive increases in certain parts of the ground, for certain categories only (ie children and Seniors) means that groups of fans now have the choice of either paying those increases or, if they cannot afford them, move to other parts of the ground thus moving away from other friends around them, thus losing an important social aspect of football. As I understand it, during the meeting at which these reasonable points were made, Bristol Sport compounded the feeling of grievance, with a response which was more or less, "tough".
  9. were you going to Russia?and now changed your mind?

    Different government - not all politicians are driven by the same agenda.
  10. Renewed or not renewed. Please post here

    It will be interesting to see how principled everyone is in the end. Last season I was pissed off because I did not realize I had to renew by the ridiculously early cut off of mid March, or lose our seats which he had had for 30 or so years.I threatened not to renew any of them out of principle, but in the event renewed all the family as they enjoy going, except my own. Then relented during the cup run when we were second in the league and bought a half season ticket! And that's the problem, Bristol Sport have you over a barrel and they know it as its the cut off your nose scenario. Like everyone else on here I just answered the question you cretin.
  11. were you going to Russia?and now changed your mind?

    As things stand, going to Kaliningrad for Belgium game and all England games from Q/F's onwards. Could have gone to all of them but didn't fancy venturing into deepest Russia in the early stages, will see how they go and if it's not looking good the flights into Gdansk and out of Kaunus can still be used to visit beautiful cities without bothering Kaliningrad. That's how I'm viewing it at the moment. Would think there is zero chance of the much talked about boycott.
  12. West Ham

    Atletico Bilbao have a Basque born only policy. They don't do so badly. I'd be 100% in favour of West country only at Ashton Gate, to replace our so called Barcelona model, which it isn't anyway. I'd add that like Barcelona, Atletico Madrid is owned by its members.
  13. West Ham

    He's got a point hasn't he. There was a very interesting interview in yesterday's Times with Julian Dicks lamenting the sanitisation of football in particular West Ham and the lack of passion shown by some modern footballers. The money in football benefits everybody - the players, especially the players of course, but also the Ashton's of this world earning a living by adding another management layer, the agents, the Sky TV executives, the football club owners with big egos, the Bristol Sport type bureaucracy, and all the other hangers on - EXCEPT a certain type of fan. The money has helped some clubs finance shiny new stadiums but there is a certain type of fan that would rather have their identity and tradition. Those fans would be there if players were paid 10% of what they get now, if the stadiums were Upton Park and Highbury rather than London Stadium and Emirates, and if their team was in League One rather than the Premiership. Those fans have not benefited, they have lost, and so the owners of West Ham shouldn't be surprised to see what is going on there.
