  1. Morell, Walsh? Probably earn less combined. Use them or lose them. Rather see what the younger players are like, feel we’ve seen the best of KS, even though a top pro, top bloke and good player. KS will get a well earned round of applause from me if he were to line up against us for whoever. JB, HNM, Nagy, COD, KP and JM & LW is plenty of cover in the middle of the park. Got two decent right backs as well as BW, TM and ZV.
  2. Is this topic an echo chamber? I guess you lot weren’t at the Gate in April when our change of formation with Webster in the middle caught last nights opposition totally cold? Not that I agree with the formation or selection last night but only an idiot would rigidly stick to one formation, you need a clear plan a, b ,c etc...
  3. Also got them early, very straightforward.
  4. In the John Peel in 2017, outstanding gig. This year on the Pyramid they were average. Was fortunate to be spitting distance from both stages on the respective years, anyone who was lucky enough to see both would agree the tent gig was 10 times the big stage this year.
  5. Hey Geoff, I did try to apologise if it appeared I was having a go, I also pointed out that I wasn’t directing any comments at any particular individual(s) posting on this thread. I’ve not looked at your history, I’m happy to take your word that you’re not a club ‘basher’. There are some on here who relish the opportunity to have a dig at our club, manager, players etc... They wind me up. You’re obviously not one. Gutted to hear of your cancelled Stones tour, hope you got a full refund or made it to one of the rescheduled dates. Anyway, sorry for any offence caused, not my intention, don’t get why anyone would want to wind up anyone online, let alone a fellow red, you can see I’m an infrequent poster and when I do post I don’t do it to get a reaction. Fingers crossed it’s a 3 O’clock Saturday and that we win and we’re both there and have a lovely day out
  6. *sorry if it appear like I’m having a pop, not had a good day That being said all the information you need to make an informed decision/educated guess is available at your finger tips, just get irritated by those who will bash the club at any opportunity, not posters in this thread in particular. Hope to see you all on the train or at the Cottage for what is traditionally a good day out
  7. I’m aware, that’s why I did research before buying, they have Championship games on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Not to mention the Manchester derby on live at 17:30 on the Saturday. There is a risk of our game being moved, I think it’s unlikely, but have booked my train leaving TM at 9:30 and the return leaving Paddington at 20:00 in the highly unlikely eventuality of it being moved back/forward. Hopefully we’ll be back in Bristol before the AJ fight. My group obviously weren’t going to buy train tickets without being confident of the game not moving and being able to obtain tickets as we’re season ticket holders. Vincent has also pointed out that it is possible to get a refund. Hopefully others can benefit from knowing the Sky schedule and the refunds are possible. Hopefully see you on the train
  8. Or you could get a refund Sir Geoff, cheers Vincent. No excuses for fans our not to purchase train tickets, that is unless they’re looking for an excuse or a reason to knock the club.
  9. The crash was a nightmare. Hopefully we don’t get a repeat. Any other ideas? Split ticketing? Buy your train tickets to TM, then TM to Paddington, then you should be able to sell that part of the journey to a fellow City fan, might even save a few pound as any who splits train tickets can confirm. I’m sure if you’re trying to get tickets on day 1 you’ll be fine, I’m counting on it as I’ve bought mine already. Alternatively, have a nice day in London on the piss or doing touristy stuff.
  10. Bought 16 train tickets so far, before announcements of sale dates. Confident my group will all get tickets as we’re not daft and between us there will be enough trying to buy. It’s not exactly a lottery like tickets for major tournaments or Glastonbury. If you’re a season ticket, or know season ticket holders not using their ID and have access to a smartphone, tablet, laptop etc... on Monday 18th at 10 am then you’re probably going to be successful. Anyone moaning about their reluctance to pay for public transport shouldn’t. If you are a season card holder and not a technophobe, are able to understand clocks and calendars you should be able to secure a ticket. Worse case scenario, if you’ve paid for transportation but can’t use it, resell it on here or elsewhere. Or have a nice drive, but don’t blame either club for your reluctance to buy a train ticket or failure to reduce your carbon footprint . By the way, prices are going up as we speak, I’d advise people get in there sooner rather than later. This will likely be our fourth away sellout of the season, anyone know a year when we’ve had more away sellouts? Going forward in this division or the one above I can see demand outstripping supply for away days regularly, glad I’m a season card holder, feel sorry for those who do more away than home.
  11. We’re all obviously very interested and hope for Benik and BCFC that he’s fit, however, regardless of whether the reports are accurate or not I wonder why some people think they have a right to know? Does having a season ticket entitled to know every aspect of a players fitness? Not having a dig at any posters in particular, just curious why they feel that should be informed, I’m sure we’ll all be there Saturday either way. Even if he was our player I’m not sure his availability should be in the public domain, even though I want an update, I don’t feel the club owes me one. The fact that he’s not our player and there are three parties involved; Benik, Stoke and ourselves and that he may need a second or third opinion only adds to the reasons that nothing has or needs to be said. Even if he was ours, do Lee or the club have to disclose that information? If I was the club and he was our player I wouldn’t feel obliged to tell our fans or opponents. I do understand the frustration, but not sure why some feel that they should be in the loop, I pay over £500 for my season ticket, but I don’t expect to be privy to who’s fit, who’s not, who’s trained well etc... Like you all (and the Swansea manager) I want the information, but I don’t feel entitled enough to say the club are obliged to share. Anyway, let’s hope he bangs a hat trick tomorrow, if not let’s hope Fam does and wish Benik well for operations and recovery.
  12. Yup, very handy, a lot of TVs have Now TV built in too. I cut the cord a long time ago, have literally saved thousands, I can handle the <£8 pcm for the all of Sky Sports without the faffing around, obviously movies and TV shows (non live programming) can come from anywhere and be watched anywhere, anytime. I have got many others to cancel their Sky and Netflix subscriptions too.
  13. A friend and I have been doing this for years, less than a season each. Now used to do this offer for 12 months beginning around Black Friday, they’ve subsequently kept the price the same or sometimes lower but reduced the duration to 9-10 months (shrinkflation). Once you’ve signed up, you can cancel immediately and you won’t be charged another penny. You can register up to 6 devices to the account, but only watch 2 simultaneously, which isn’t a problem for us. It gives you access to all the Sky Sports Channels, but no red button. Currently you can also get £15 cash back with Quidco too. So this works out at less than £8 pcm each, I think it actually saves us both money by not going out to watch football several times a week. The now TV boxes and sticks are also portable, so you can plug them in anywhere, I’ve taken my away on holiday and may even have taken them to a pub or two which don’t subscribe to Sky. Just need the device and WiFi, obviously most people have a phone now which will be able to act as a hotspot and they’ll have unlimited data, so essentially it can be used anywhere there is a TV and you and your phone are if there’s no WiFi. In brief, we pay less than £8 each, it’s totally legal (if we’re not broadcasting it in public) no other charges or subscriptions required, you don’t need to be a Sky customer, massively cheaper than the full Sports package that Sky offer, the only drawback is that no red button games
  14. I’ve got tickets for a Group D game at Wembley. Friday 19 June game, so do I have a 2 in 3 chance of watching England? Booked a hotel already. £45 with parking! Not expecting the Ritz, but walking distance to the stadium and somewhere to pass out after a night out in the big smoke!
