  1. Talking of the very large car park at one end (obviously before 4th stand built) some years I recall looking over just before half-time and realised that a parking attendant was dishing out tickets. I had parked near the end on a scruffy surface and thought it was free - all the machines were a hundred yards away next to the properly surfaced part nearer the town centre. Luckily the stewards let me out of the gates (and back in) at half time and I managed to buy a ticket just before the attendant got to my car. It was a league match but can't remember anyone else about it. I think the
  2. Couldn't get in for first 12 minutes of Saturday's match - it said I hadn't logged in but my name appeared at the top of the screen so I obviously had Also froze several times during the match - not very good service at all for £10. I have seen most of other matches at end of last season and this season without issues though so nothing to do with my configuration ( on PC using Edge and BT Broadband).
  3. The ground only holds about 3,500. Wimbledon still play there. City only had a small allocation for the replay (<1000) but I got my tickets direct from Kingstonian as a West London resident - when we scored it appeared as if at least a third of the Home end / side had done the same and were also City fans.
  4. Yes he did spot some good players as well especially those three but some other expensive duds eg Riviere. Carr did recommend Joelinton to Mike Ashley last year although he was no longer employed by them according to the article.
  5. Interview in today's Mail (yes I know but my wife buys it) with Graham Carr, father of "comedian" Alan and former manager and scout for various clubs. When he was Chief Scout at Newcastle under Alan Pardew, Carr senior was told that Pardew fancied a new centre forward and showed him a video of Nahki Wells (then at Bradford). Carr's response was "F****ing Hell". Then says "sometimes you have to think how the fans would react. That one never happened." Seems an odd story to tell given Newcastle's feeble last few seasons and some hopeless transfers - Carr persuaded Newcastle to spend
  6. If I had paid £40 for a Lansdown ticket for say Sheff Wed match on March 17, I would have expected to have been offered a refund if the date changed. However, a Season Ticket is different, since it represents a big discount against normal prices and I don't think the club is obliged to repay a proportion pro rata if remaining matches can only be played behind closed doors due to government restrictions. I paid for a year's subscription to my local tennis club and play was barred for the last two months of the year. No refund was offered by the tennis club but they have offered a di
  7. We still don't make the play-offs if all Home teams were awarded a 1-0 win as we have 5 left and so do Preston who are above us. We need some serious financial fair play penalties in terms of points deductions imposed against a few clubs above us and we will win automatic promotion.
  8. Last bit not right as their ground only had three sides then.
  9. Hard but fair. Legend is over-used term but applies to Norman. One of the best players to wear a City shirt.
  10. I live in Hampshire and drive a 200 mile round trip to home games. Beforehand I usually visit my daughter who lives opposite Greville Smyth Park or I have a pint in Hotwells. Both of these locations are in proposed Central Ban Zone being introduced by the council. As I have a diesel car this will mean I can't do either of these. Should I just give up my season ticket and stop seeing my daughter? Public transport is not a viable option for me. Has there been no local opposition to this? What about all the residents who have a diesel car already?
  11. I seem to recall that Roy was statistically the worst ever City manager in our history. Possibly later overtaken by Steve Coppell who was only in charge for two games, if that's enough to make a significant stat.
  12. I find the advertising during the match really irritating - why can't they just put in on before the match and at half time. The adverts that involve moving cats, cars etc are particularly distracting especially if you sit fairly low down as the players and ball are directly in line with your vision.
  13. Cashless is fine when it works. I buy lunch from a couple of different mobile food outlets but on about 1 in 10 days the point of sale device doesn't work so they ask for cash - many people don't have it on them so they don't get lunch although one vendor trusts you to pay next time. On the first day of the season before last (Wigan?) the bars in the Lansdown wouldn't take card payments due to a network failure I believe - had to share a cup of tea with my daughter as not much shrapnel in our pockets. I think cash should always be an option if you are running a retail outlet.
  14. Ridiculous and pathetic behaviour from professional sportsman. I would terminate their contracts - I would hope that City would do the same if they were our players.
  15. Glad it's on the red button now as tried this morning but sold out.
