  1. Christmas Party/Team spirit/who’s who

    Good to see a few bottles of cider (Old Mout?) on the table
  2. Oh dear Sheffield United

    Glad they put Wilder for January, must be so the fans can make the most of it before he gets the sack in February
  3. Sports Bar & Pizzeria for Manchester Game

    Interesting as this £20 package wasn't offered or even mentioned when they got in touch with us......? Maybe they've stuck this on after a backlash/lack of take up of the £40 option from fans? I wonder if you will get a table for the £20 deal though or are they just going to charge everyone £20 to get in and have pizza and sides dotted everywhere
  4. How do we beat Manchester?

    Even if this full strength Man Utd team played crap and we played at our absolute best?
  5. Sports Bar & Pizzeria for Manchester Game

    I think that's clutching at straws a little bit, there's a clear dividing barrier between the tables and the 'standing' area which means that unless you have booked a table, you can't stand in that area. I imagine the set-up will be exactly the same for this game, they will just be charging people £40 each to sit in there.

  7. How do we beat Manchester?

    We're currently at 9/1 to beat them in 90 minutes, 4/1 to progress to the next round. The fact that we are at these sort of odds against a club of Manchester's stature says it all and shows how we are being taken seriously. Whatever happens I just hope we show ourselves in a good light, it's a massive opportunity for the club not just on the pitch, but to attract the next generation of fans. Of course we can beat them, it might come down to who wants it more, we as the fans have a massive part to play in that.
  8. Sports Bar & Pizzeria for Manchester Game

    Unfortunately, as much as we would love to say stick your business, due to circumstances already mentioned we will be back in there the very next game as a having a guaranteed spot to sit down is essential. We will be happy enough with that as we have a good time and like I said the staff are fantastic. It's no fault of there's that this scenario has come up. Just disappointed with the club on this one as it smacks of money grabbing, not even 90 years of dedication can buy loyalty it seems.
  9. Sports Bar & Pizzeria for Manchester Game

    From my point of view, it's a sports bar, not a restaurant. If you want to charge per head for a set meal then you've got the Lansdown restaurant etc but that's just my opinion. The main reason we frequent this place is because of an elderly member (90) of the group who is less mobile and it's ideal to get him the relatively short distance to his seat. But as others have said, maybe naive of us to expect any loyalty when there's money to be made and there will be others happy to take our seats.
  10. So we use the Sports Bar & Pizzeria on a weekly basis before the game and have booked a table for around 10-15 of us for every home game this season (including cup games). As a matter of course we order the drinks and food we want from the menus provided on the day, all a very good service, friendly staff with good quality food and drink on offer so first of all before I say anything else we have had no complaints whatsoever, well done to the club. On to the matter at hand then, we have been informed that, if we wish to use the Sports Bar with our regular booking for the Manchester game, they are going to charge £40 per head for a set meal and require a 50% deposit up front. No offer to politely turn it down in favour of our regular set-up. Take it or leave it, this is happening. As I have stated, I think what the Sports Bar provides is fantastic, however, I cannot fathom how they can justify suddenly springing this on regular customers who, taking into account this will be the 15th time this season we as a group would have been in this bar for food and drinks and the amount of money we would have spent in the process. Needless to say it was a polite, thanks but no thanks and we will be taking our business elsewhere for this one.
  11. Leko. A little naive?

    I think it was Reading away that I was at when he came on at 0-0 (think it was his debut?). He absolutely terrorised the Reading defence and I am certain his impact was one of the main factors as to why we grabbed that late Flinty winner. Granted he has been inconsistent since, but when you're a teenager, not getting much game time and are eager to impress when you come on, you are probably going to try and do too much to try and make that impact. I have no doubt that he is a real talent, just needs to reign it in a bit and not try to take on the world when he comes on.
  12. Infant Kits

    I bought one for my 3 year old which generally fits fine everywhere else but is extremely long! So much so that it needs to be tucked in lest everyone think he's wearing a City dress! He is by no means short either, in fact he is taller than average for his age. I've bought one for him every year since he was 1, some have been too tight, some have been too big. It seems it is a bit of a lottery as to how each one will fit each year.
  13. This genuinely pissed me off

    Along the same lines (sorry for getting slightly off track here) i've noticed spelling/grammar mistakes on the official site a few times lately. I'm in no way a spelling or grammar guru, but things like this have always just jumped out at me whilst reading and, although minor most of the time, do damage credibility. Especially when published on the official club site.
  14. Club Made a Mistake With Manchester Tickets?

    Yes you do get a card for being a member and yes you can load matches onto your card.
  15. You’re not worthy..!

    The re-sale of football tickets (for any value) is against the law due to safety concerns of 2 sets of supporters mingling in the stands. Although in reality buying for friends and family happens up and down the country every week. It's the online and physical touting of tickets that are going to cause the issues. A quick google search and you can find tickets for this game (in the away end) on sale for upwards of £400 each.
