  1. Judging by the current wait time for the ticket office, 12 minutes and still holding, the attendance is increasing
  2. Hi from memory I think CATS ran 2 coaches. I thought the match was Millwall v Reading since he had played most of his career at these 2 clubs. It was a friendly atmosphere and yes I was told I wouldn't be welcome to stand in the Millwall end when we played them next.
  3. Why is it so hard to buy a ticket. Decided to go yesterday ordered ticket on line no postal delivery available (fair enough) so went to ground to collect ticket and was told to come back tomorrow as the ticket hasn’t been printed and moved to the shop for collection. Can’t get to ground tomorrow so will have to pick it up from Forest ground.
  4. Extract from todays Post A group of Bristol City supporters are appealing to fans of all clubs to join their fight for justice against West Midlands police force. They are pursuing a case that occurred in September 2015, when they say they were detained before a match against Birmingham City. The 10 Bristol City fans say there were are 'not on any list of so-called 'risk supporters' and were surrounded and threatened with force including the use of police dogs, publicly accused of being hooligans by an inspector using a megaphone, detained for over 90 minutes, and put back on a train home without being allowed to attend the game they had come to watch'. The group are taking West Midlands Police to court over the incident and are looking to raise funds to help the legal action. A press release from the group explained that 'Police across the country have been using draconian powers to threaten and intimidate football fans on their way to watch their favourite teams.' The group say that they had all travelled to the game independently, didn’t all know each other and had tickets for the match. Eight out of the ten members were issued with dispersal notices pursuant to Section 35 of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime & Disorder Act 2014 by West Midlands Police. All 10 are claiming false imprisonment and a breach of Article 5 of the European Convention of Human Rights. Particulars of claim, backed by The Bristol City Supporters Club & Trust, were served on 12 January earlier this year on West Midlands Police who have to date denied that they acted unlawfully. The Chair of the Supporters Club & Trust, Stu Rogers explained that, “Three years on, almost to the day, and we are still seeking justice for innocent fans being unfairly treated and prevented from attending a football match. "To get the result needed to ensure this doesn’t continue to happen to other football fans up and down the country, we really need your support” The group have have a Conditional Fee Agreement in place to help with their case, but they say that 'taking a police force to court is expensive and not without risk'. They are asking fans from other clubs to give a small amount to a fund being set up to help mitigate any financial risk for the claimants. 'Hopefully, we will win, however, we need to safeguard against West Midlands Police claiming their costs in the event we lose or are forced to pull out,' they say. The group hope to raise a target of £10,000. If interested you can contribute here . In the event the fund is not required, the group have explained that the money will be donated to the Football Supporters Federation (FSF) to be held in reserve for any future case in which the FSF is assisting fans of any club caught up in a similar situation or require legal representation. The group points out that the action is aimed at helping supporters from being treated in the same way in the future. I am not involved with this court case, but my son was very fortunate not to be rounded up at the same time, I have no faith in the WMP and feel strongly that all fans should support the group. £100 donated
  5. This is comedy Gold. Not a straight informed answer during the whole interview,i
  6. A season is based on 46 games, during which you have good and bad spells. Yes our form since Christmas has been abysmal, but you cannot dispute the fact that for the fourth year in a row we have finished in a better league position than the previous season. You do not win the league in November, unless you are Swindon
  7. All chance of me going with the Mrs went due to Russia in Marseille. I just do not trust Russia or FIFA to do enough to prevent serious disorder, much of which will not be reported on and swept under the carpet.
  8. Sympathise with you I was 36,000 feet in the air en route to Barbados when we played Hull. The Mrs said I was unbearable on the flight. Since then I have never and will never book anything during the playoff fortnight. My mum is 80 this year in May her party has been booked to avoid any possible playoff clash its football you don’t know what will happen in 6 months time
  9. Northampton Away Orr sent off after fighting with Louis Carey
  10. Tomlin v Huddersfield A superb two footed goal
  11. Used the Ashton Moss park and ride home 1 55
  12. I had faith placed £10 at 9/1 McGoalsky to score at any time
  13. Does any one know how many tickets are left on level 3?
