  1. So it was a firm but fair tackle that the ref saw otherwise and he challenged the ref...sounds like dissent to me
  2. When is Heath going to get a grip on the discipline, bookings for dissent are criminal with the chance of a second yellow resulting in a red. We haven't got 11 fit to play without additional suspensions thru "dissent"
  3. So that's 9 mercenaries or 9 journeymen on the way to an easy retirement? Not a good thing either way.
  4. Time to let this go now. Game day so focus on the match. Continuing to go on about this is making our fans look a little silly, like spoilt children. We are not the first and won't be the last to experience a shortage of tickets for big games Those going enjoy, those not going save your energy and voices for the 2nd leg
  5. So we should by now know who these morons are, so how come they are on the coaches?
  6. You are quite correct Flea, there is a 2.5hr window in the first week in August so the club has fully complied with its promise to sell them in that first week and I am sure the club has contingencies in place when all 800-1000 purchasers turn up in the first week of August to collect them.
  7. Excuses when solutions are needed
  8. So let's assume there are 1000 tickets sold in a combination of adult,youths, and kids versions. Each ticket receipt will need to be checked, payment validated, goodie bag for some, not for others, ticket issued and transactionrecorded as complete. If, and its a big if, they can do that in a single minute then it will take just shy of 17 "man" hours to complete ....provided there is always someone in the queue waiting to be processed and the packs are all ready to be issued and there is some one to issue them I hope they rethink about opening on Sunday or they have found a spare tre
  9. Open at the weekend....but not Sunday when most people would be free to go to collect, assume they must all be at Church
  10. The reason the offer stops at the end of July is that they then get a single batch printed, it is apparently very expensive to print such ticket books according to reports on here. Keeping it open into August would either involve the extra expense of printing a few extras, or those that have bought will have to wait and miss a couple of games of the season without a ticket...which would be silly ....but this is the Shay. They would have printed and distributed tickets to those already having purchased surely if the cost of printing was negligible...unless the "withdrawal clause" th
  11. The arrangements "proposed"are collect from the Shay "early August". Tickets can be ordered upto the end of July I believe. When does the first home game kick off? Early August? So not many days to get them printed and then to divvy them up to the masses before the first game kicks off. I have never had to queue as this will be my first season ticket in 55 seasons of watching the club, bought in the post Wembley euphoria. This close season has been a massive improvement on any of the previous 55 seasons ( well those I can remember) but with just a little bit more effort it c
  12. I don't understand why they aren't available to collect at the time of purchase....ie print in advance of them being released for sale why they can't be posted out at the time of purchase...as above why they can't be posted out at some date(s) close to the start of the season. They know in advance the number of home games they will be playing and so could order proportion of the 1700 (the target number) sets of tickets in advance and any sets not used are destroyed at some point after the first game of the season.( Mr B can personal supervise the bonfire) The pr
  13. Slow down you are getting in front of yourselves now..........we've not got this year's yet. Let them focus on coming up with a cunning plan to enable people to collect their ST from the Shay without having to spend ages queuing outside the Shay on one wet Wednesday night between 6 and 8pm.
  14. There's two in jail, one is from Huddersfield, the other from Halifax. Hopefully neither have any connections with the Shay.
  15. Friendly matches are important that's why we play them. Give whoever called it off some credit.
  16. No I'm not kidding. Aspin's hit record of winners vs losers in the transfer market is low. We have had 4 possibly 5 good signings who have moved upwards out of the many dozen that have been, failed and moved on....downwards We are not a league standard setup and with the current crowds we will remain an average conference side but I have my fears that we have peaked over the last 18 months and we have seen the best for a while.
  17. In a way maybe it's all for the best as I fear we would be humiliated in the football league both on and off the pitch....the club is not in the right place to go up. The big worry is that next year will be a poor one, replacing those players leaving (who came in on a promise of big things to come) with players who are an improvement will be difficult to achieve given the clubs physical set up and financial constraints. Our record of finding the players with the qualities required for league standards is poor. Time for a reassessment of our capabilities, expectations and general setup.
  18. This is the fourth "must win game" in a row now. Hopefully this time we will.
  19. It's all Depressing to say the least. Aspin says he's not worried about two points dropped. No ambition, get Trev in charge. English football's best teams embarrassed by the foreigners. Cricket team being humiliated in Australia Rugby shown how to do it by the Irish Thankfully F1 is back in two weeks time and we will have a Brit showing how it's done albeit in a German car
  20. Hope you are not the same guy that posted how our defence was playing so well on Saturday, two minutes before they scored.
  21. Equally no point in trying and failing to get promotion (and it's not a given we would get into the playoffs let alone win them) and at the same time giving up a chance to bank the money and experience a Wembley final would give. Win on Tuesday, at home to a " nothing special team" and we are in " the playoffs" for Wembley with 3 other "nothing special teams". We are 17 games away from the league playoffs where, if we get there, there would be 3 other "very good teams" to play. Got to put 100% into the Trophy even if it is a distraction......though it should not be one, more an
  22. That stance didn't last long! Hopefully having walked away he will end up with us.
  23. Correct and it doesn't make interesting either. Time to move on and leave his future to him and his lawyer to sort out.
