  1. I’d rather see mistakes by referees than have VAR.
  2. Thanks-it looked like the RR entrance would be shut.
  3. Anybody know if you can enter the site via Raynes Road, or do you have to go around to KFC?
  4. I wonder if this figure only relates to the internal stadium concessions/bars, not those outside in the fan park, which are, presumably, independent of Ashton Gate but pay a fee to have the ‘pitch’? Does anyone know more? If so, given the amount of pints being drunk outside pre-match, which would not be included if that was the case, this makes the figure more impressive.
  5. Thanks I’m not at all tech savvy! When not at home but still in the uk, I would use mobile data to create a hotspot and then use a tablet to get Netflix or iPlayer. At home I use a nowtv box or chrome cast for Netflix to the tv, so I’m not sure if a slingbox would work for me (having never heard of them and just had a quick read!) as i’ve not got virgin or sky.
  6. Looking for a little help from OTIB’s knowledge .... Off to Spain soon and long story short, my partner has an illness which may make it difficult to go out at times, so the option of her being able to watch Netflix or BBC IPlayer would be great. Tried it before abroad, but they are geo-blocked. I’ve read mention of VPN’s on here, but I have no idea where to start! Ideally I wouldn’t want to pay, but if paying was the only option, something for a short time would be preferable. Any help would be appreciated!
  7. Agree. I really enjoyed listening to the full audio of the press conference. It used to be quite long, circa 20 minutes, but it was great on the commute and offered some great insight. Any chance this could be brought back @Matt Parsons BCFCSLO?
  8. Amazing tool. They can take the player right back into the game, so they can see themself / their view at the time, so mistakes of timing or positioning can be looked at in detail and improvements coached.
  9. How many are left in home areas for Forest? Last time I looked upper Lansdown (non family areas) were open and whilst not all seats may have been released for sale, could it be possible with a week to go that the club think we may get near to selling them all and we need to open the Atyeo for home fans and those who need more than just the odd ticket, as that is what tends to get left in the Dolman? I’d rather dissapoint away fans than our own who may get caught up in first game optimism this week, especially if ticket sales are already going well.
  10. My reply from Chris Skidmore. Not an encouraging response to win my vote....... Thank you for contacting me about safe standing and the upcoming debate in Westminster Hall. Unfortunately due to other commitments I am unable to attend the debate. The Government believes that all-seater stadiums are the best means to ensure the safety and security of spectators at football grounds in England and Wales. All-seater stadiums have helped improve crowd management, crowd behaviour and policing. They provide better and more comfortable facilities to enjoy football matches, which has helped encourage inclusivity and diversity amongst those attending. I understand that the Government is continuing to monitor the issue of spectator accommodation and the use of safe standing where it is permitted, including at Celtic, but Ministers are not persuaded by the case put forward to re-introduce standing accommodation in grounds in the top two divisions covered by the all-seater policy, at present. I also think there are other ways of dealing with persistent standing, aside from introducing safe standing. For example, I would like to see the regulations to deal with persistent standing enforced more consistently. I hope this has set out my position on the matter however I would be more than happy to raise any concerns you have after the debate to the Minister directly if you would like to e-mail me in more detail. With all best wishes,
  11. So when is the right time then? Next year when they look to target another group with a completely inflation busting price rise? The club are looking to divide and conquer by their specific targeting and not upsetting everyone, so there is conflict between the fans on the issue and what to do or not do about it, But now is the time for everyone to make a stand. Should those not directly effected be saying "I'm alright Jack, doesn't bother me", or actually is the greater good something to get behind here? It could be you next time...... Fair play @Harry and those adults in S82 who may not be directly affected by a price rise, but who see the bigger picture at play.
  12. On way to Burton and heard these: [To Tinman is a s....head} If you are disabled; or a family; Mark Ashton will screw you; he'll screw the OAPs. [Sorry Joe, we'll have to find something else for you at the mo] They're one of our own; there're one of our own; kids and disabled; they're one of our own [Slight adaption of the Manics anthem and probably perceptive of the future] AND if you tolerate this, then your wallet will be next.......
  13. A silent walk out on 16 minutes, returning on 22? A walk out visually this caught the eye and the media attention with Liverpool fans’ protests. It’s kids in the main being affected this time, but it may be you and your seat next...... .....as a fan base we need to make a stand and support our own.
  14. Couldn’t agree more @RedM The previous pricing structure was great and encouraged this. I didn’t want to move to a sanitised area just so I could bring kids as the other aspects of matchday are important, not just watching the match. Happy we have a family area and the club sought to encourage families by making the first kid free in there, but going with a family shouldn’t mean that is your only option. This is what is being engineered and is wrong.
  15. @Blagdon red That's really poor. I hope after some thought about the issues, the SC&T can put out a response on behalf of the fans. I also hope it is something we can mobilise behind. I think this is an ill conceived strategy by the club, against its own supporters with families, so I hope we can make it sit up, listen, take stock and reconsider. @Harry - you hit the nail on the head.
