  1. Hi. If by leaving early you mean 5 or 6 o'clock, fine. If you mean 9, forget it. The A30 east bound and M5 will be horrendous on Saturday. My advice, ( I do this journey regularly), would be leave about 3ish. If you want to watch the game and go at 5 or 6, roads should be fine, but you will be in the dark a fair bit, never pleasant. Forecast is ok for Saturday Safe journey pal UTV
  2. Just had an e mail from the club, ( general, not specific to me) apologizing for the problems. Extra turnstiles will be open for all areas of the ground tomorrow.
  3. Eh up Ray, you owrayt? It was really to see what number all of the new players were. Used the BBC Sports website. Soon get used to them. If it is a spare, I would be grateful if you could pass it on to Evo for me. Cheers mate
  4. Yes, at least 3 very large flat screens. It may be a H and S thing. if 1 of the old ones had fallen it would have killed someone!! The tannoy thing I don't understand - it is deafening in the LS
  5. Slightly off at a tangent, but my feelings. Travelling in was amazed at the lack of traffic, parked on High Lane, was the only car there. ( still the same at the end!!) Went to have a look at the fan zone, looked great, lots of happy families there. Spending at the vale as well instead of the town centre. About 2.15 this, queues for the Paddock even then, so the "not there early enough" goes out of the window. Made my way round to Lorne street 2.20ish, went straight up to turnstile and in, no problem. Not so good then unfortunately. Long queues at the concourses (good for vale though) Part of the problem was having to decant into glasses, ( but my bottle of cider Ok). 2 people left my queue because it was cash only apparently. If it has to be cash only ( unusual since covid) this needs to be well flagged up in publicity and notices up at the kiosks. Money being lost here. If folk know in advance, easy to sort out. No programs available. Probably the 1 match ( new signings, what number etc) I would buy a program. Maybe they had sold out, but as I say this was at 2.20. Saw comments that the queues at the Paddock kiosks were enormous at half time ( I didn't look tbh, was watching the half time scores on the new teles). Stadia Catering always pre poured before half time. Would this help? I didn't notice lots of fans coming in after KO in the Lorne Street or Bycars (no more than usual anyway) If fans can't get in to the Bycars, that is ridiculous with how many go in there. There has always been late arrivals in to the Paddock, so didn't think anything of it at the time tbh. This has got to be sorted though, or casual fans will just not come. Overall experience, really enjoyed it, good atmosphere, lovely to see so many kids there, all in strips. Have to say I found it strange being in a crowd after so long, uncomfortable. But I don't suppose I was alone there. Will take a while to get used to being close to people again.
  6. I don't understand the criticism of England. In the quarters now, still to concede a goal and yet constant criticism. Czech republic, Croatia , Austria - all beaten by England, all caused so called top teams major problems. Why can't we just enjoy the success? If anyone thinks we are going to win games easily , they are in cloud cuckoo land. Get behind England!!
  7. Wish I'd had a bet! 8 out of 9 now
  8. And yet we should go through and Scotland will probably go out. They are celebrating like they have won the world cup because they didn't lose to England, lol. Apparently we have not conceded in 7 of our last 8 games now.
  9. Wasn't that a 2nd leg and we won 2 - 1?
  10. Why do you say it should have stood. It was offside. The linesman and ref missed it. But for VAR there would have been an injustice. Imagine England conceding that 'goal' in a vital game. I would have gone mental.
  11. I find it very difficult to believe they have never set foot in anfield tbh. If they wanted to brick vehicles, they could go to a bridge. No doubt in my mind they were. " supporterz". Will never be proved cos never any arrests
  12. Radio Stoke are reporting on it. Lead item on the news, question to listeners _ should Gradi be stripped of MBE? etc. I personally think he has got off lightly with this report, it doesn't seem to link his involvement at Chelsea AND Crewe. Says he wasn't aware of it but had heard rumours. Yeah, right. After Chelsea, if he was innocent, he would have jumped all over it at crewe immediately.
  13. The earlier incident, it didn't hit the ref though, he slightly obstructed a Newport player. Does that make a difference?
  14. First time I've had problems. Froze 11th minute into first half injury time. Only managed to get it back as second half started. Buffering problems for about 20 minutes also. Mate and grandson had problems for the first time as well. Didn't spoilt a good game and great result though.
  15. Personally, very sorry he's gone now, rather than in the summer. It's saved stoke a fortune on wages, for a player who wasn't even playing. Gutted!!
