Re: The 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup

I actually thought VAR worked well for the penalty decision, which the ref hadn't given but looked pretty clear to me on VAR, and also for the first missed penalty. But to not pick up the encroachment on the retake was unforgivable. However I can see it being used far too much and the flow of the ga...

Re: Huge rise in ST prices

Everyone gets new season ticket cards. All part of the stadium operators plan to tackle migration of people to different sections of the ground (all discussed at the stadium safety advisory group meetings). Different colours indicate an area and if its upper or lower. Here's a picture of the Billy ...

Re: Little things that irritate you

Not really irritating, but a couple of hours ago we heard a loud bang and the windows vibrated. I thought it was a jet fighter's sonic boom. Turns out it was a minor earthquake (4.2 on the richter scale) hitting the Lake Geneva area around Montreux. Thankfully no damage that I'm aware of, accept may...

I guess that we could include the British Virgin Islands in the U.K. time zone no ? Never thought of that, it would make a good QI question.

Re: Spot checks for away ticket holders. Photo ID required.

I agree that in principle its a good idea in order to stop the abuse of the priority points scheme, and sometimes for other sporting and music events this is asked for so that it isn't that unique. How they would ever police it though given the points raised in the posts above though remains to be s...

Re: Messi (and other superstars)

Away at Arenal in August 1996, first game of the season (I think), and David Seaman got a standing ovasion from all of us before the match as he came to his goal in recognition of his England heroics at Euro 96, which he acknowledged. I have politely clapped the odd exceptional goal, particularly at...

Re: Friday night kick offs. Next season.

This could be exactly the excuse I need to finally give up my season ticket of 25+ years.

Each year I say "one more year", but this time it would really be impossible for me to get to most games so it would definitely go.

Re: Pochettino whinging

Agreed, I've never understood this view of supporting the English clubs, especially these days, the better these big clubs do means more money and a bigger gap between them and us and the rest, really we want them all to fail miserably I used to cheer on any British club in Europe, even when Tony P...

Re: Olympic Stadium Discussion and Questions

Admittedly the Stade de France is a hell of a lot better than the London Stadium in terms of being fit for Football but it is still far from ideal... Amazingly, our lower tier is actually closer at some points... The biggest difference is obviously the way they blend the lower and upper tiers. The ...

Re: Olympic Stadium Discussion and Questions

I'm in row 19 of the BML (so about 3/4 of the way back) and although it will always be better to be closer of course, I've never really thought of it as being much of a problem, comparable to where I was in the old ground, and I'm very happy with the view. It's the other part of the stadium that can...
