Play-offs v Swindon Tickets


Recommended Posts

Although the Hamil end is superior to the Bycars in terms of facilities and acoustics, have to say I’m not a fan of swapping ends, although I’ve done it in the past, but I fully understand the reasons so will embrace the idea, in a jovial, good spirited kind of way, rather than adopting my usual churlish stance.

Wonder if this could become a permanent fixture putting away fans in the Bycars? 
I've no doubt if this happened there'd be a few on here straight away vowing never to go again if they couldn't sit in their usual seat

Jeff Kent ain't very happy about it maybe we could let him go in the away end (bycars ) I'm sure it holds more than 2200anyway so put some of the Vale I'm not moving from the bycars in there the ones who are moaning about it then everyone's happy

Good new about the Hamil arrangement and although a lot of my memories are from the Bycars I would welcome this becoming a permanent move. The only stumbling block in the future would be the police insisting that larger problematic away followings are moved back to the Hamil.

If permanent, the club could install a fenced walk-way directly from the pub to the back of the Hamil. There are endless advantages and opportunities to giving home fans the Hamil permanently.

The only small issue would be the scoreboard not being visible, but I think it long overdue an upgrade and possible relocation anyway.

If I remember correctly did this not happen a few years back when Wolves came last game of the season?

Yeah we gave them Hamil and Bycars. They filled the Hamil but had about 500 (max) in the Bycars.

Was the day we got relegated from the Championship in 2000.

Are tickets for the home game definitely going on sale at the same time on Thursday as the away game.  I can see this be an absolute nightmare if they are and people likely to be queing for a very long time.

Cheaper than the Railway Paddock, but Bycars if it was raining heavy.

I've been in the Paddock and Stand for the past 20 years, but the truth is 200 away fans in the Hamil can make more noise than 1000 in the Railway. If you watch any away fan vlogs etc, you just can't hear us.

I'll think 3000+ of us in the Hamil next Thursday will be worth a goal.

Why queue when you can get a home ticket sitting in your pants at home?

Put the scoreboard in the Family Stand area, and make it bigger.

Important question!!
Can you nip out for a smoke at half time in the Hamil???
It's a deal breaker

no you have to invade the pitch and sit on the track, just ask a steward, cant see the issue with a pitch side cig. Although H&S has gone mad these days. Soon you wont be able to drink the bovril due to H&S issues, my tongue is still suffering.
