  1. Wouldn't the value of the ground be the value of the ground now, and not what 'could ' be built in its place? It's a bit like the projected accounts, which I've always had a problem with, you can state. anything unless you are tied in somehow. What's to stop you saying it was state of the art when we built it, and to rebuild it as state of the art now would cost £1Billion . I said before with projected accounts, Villa could have said if we don't go up we will have a fire sale and bring in £150million. Then as they have gone up they just laugh and wave as they sneak off to the Prem. I don't pretend to know the nuances of FFP and Football accounts, but this seems another way to muddy the waters.
  2. Makes it worse there is something in place which try to force you to buy tickets now as they might go up if it's popular. It's one thing if they're expensive, but t charge more because it's is selling well sounds a bit like touting to me.
  3. Just had a look around, those were Platinum tickets, so I looked to see what you get for such posh sounding tickets. Turns out nothing, you are right, they are priced on demand . It say the price can change, so basically sell well cost more. I just think that is a rip off.
  4. I did wonder about Radiohead, but ThomYorke is doing a solo tour into next year , Glasgow in June. So little to no chance. Paul McCartney and Taylor Swift tipped for Glasto next year, might be a chance of a warm up. The Hives are touring in the USA. The Cure are doing loads of Festivals . ELO . Kiss are doing their last tour. Can't wait to see Gene Simmons on the roof In other news just saw Elton John is touring at the end of next year. Just for a laugh I thought I'd check out the pricing. 2 tickets, on the side , and two of very few left. £ 874 the pair, is this normal prices for the O2 ? Who pays around a grand for gig tickets, no one I know I'm sure.
  5. Ah good, didn't realise there were new rules in place. I watch with baited breath, and fingers crossed.
  6. Got to try this just once more... Oh,oh, oh he's magic , you know. Brownhill the Bristol Perlo or. Adam the Bristol Perlo , or Nagy (Naj ) is the Bristol Perlo.
  7. Here's my concern Dave, the EFL and the EPL are two very different entities, and work and exist in very different worlds . Would an illegal act committed in one (EFL) , be punished in another (EPL)? In theory it could but in practice I'm not so sure. I would imagine there would have to be meetings between the two before any outcome and punishment could even be spoken about. No point in the EFL saying Villa will be docked 15 points, when they next play in the Football League, it may never happen. There has to be a joint effort in this, otherwise it's pointless. It would lead to possible situations where Qatar could buy a club, throw £billions at it and take the piss out of FFP, then continue in the Prem. Build a top 10 side knowing there would be no come back, as long as they abide by their new Leagues rules.
  8. Got a nice little run into March. Booker T at Ronnie Scotts on 28th Feb. HMHB on the 6th. Rumours of Fleetwood Mac in Torquay on the 14th. (thanks to recommendations from on here) The last one is a treat for the mrs, though I don't know why, she turned down her ticket to HMHB after I got her one Plus Nick Cave in Cardiff, and because the wife complained she always goes to my Gigs, I somehow ended up agreeing to Rick Astley , also in Cardiff. Can't remember the price at Shepton, I did go to both gigs there. Had the side panels stolen off of my Lambretta, yes I do hold a grudge. I remember the Wembley price as we had an option and got the dearer tickets , thinking they would be better. So far away from the stage I didn't know they had backing singer until I read the review in Melody Maker the following week.
  9. I was robbed, paid £7:50 and ended up at the furthest seats from the stage possible
  10. I'll keep an eye out for them. I like the Peter Green era, and the Mrs likes the later stuff.
  11. I know, Mrs loves them and I did look at tickets for Wembley. I think the cheapest was around £160 each. But as you say, they would sell the place out. I'd go to that.
  12. No,No aannnndd No thanks Interesting. Not seen them for 35 years or so, I guess they might sell it out . The one I really wanted to see was Nick Cave, and Cardiff sorted that for me. Radiohead , just looked and Thom Yorke is doing a solo tour with gaps may/June , Fleetwood Mac , this would be great for the Mrs, and better than Rick Astley I had to agree to see. Liam and Weller double header . Weller's dates end on June 1st and LG has nothing up just yet.
  13. The Who are saving for their retirement I think, looked at tickets the other day I,d like to see the Stereophonics though.
  14. Funny, although I've stood/sat in every part of the ground, I think if you're of a certain age you started on the old East End, that's just the way it was. I know it was pretty grim around the toilets, they even had their own tide. ! and open air ! But It was special. I started just to the left of the centre as you looked out, and people stood in the same spot each week. Strangely we stood behind the barrier so got crushed at ever goal or near miss. In the old First division days we moved to the open end, and at different times were in Dolman A block , Williams enclosure , Williams A block and now Lowe Lansdown. Yes the ground and facilities are a million times better, but I'm glad I'm an old git and had the chance to live through those great atmospheres . One thing on attendance, I think the Evening Post gave one, maybe 2 figures of around 40k , estimated. As the gates at the back of the Open end were kicked open a couple of times, used to have the clipping, sadly long gone now.
