  1. Our ticketing system - why is it so complicated

    A little bit of light relief . Our ticket system has one main purpose- how difficult can it be? I am a season ticket holder and last week bought tickets for last night’s match for myself and two friends , also season ticket holders. I bought them on the phone and was told they would be...

    The Clock Ticks On

    From Mark Steyn: The world divides into those who sincerely believe in that "Coexist" sticker and those who think it's a delusional evasion. After all, if it weren't for that big Muslim crescent "C" at the front, you wouldn't need a bumper sticker at all: That peace-symbol "O"? It's Muslims...

    Hi folks, after a bit of a wait my mum has been offered a flat in an assisted living place in Rayleigh, however this leaves me with the task of helping her move and selling her house.

    Interesting article here from Supporters Direct on fan engagement, we've brought in the idea of "buying" the opportunity to lead the teams out this season, but what other ideas could we suggest for Roots Hall? You’ll have heard a lot this season on the disconnect between supporters and clubs...

  8. Vodafone

    Found this on another forum, had me in stitches! Dear All I thought I would share my ongoing, and unresolved, problems with Vodafone in case anyone had never used their crummy tax-avoiding service before. In summary, I have spoken to a total of 14 (forteen) different customer services...

    Decent Indian near the ground, open Saturday lunchtimes?

    Hi Chaps I am due to meet a couple of Plymouth supporting mates next Saturday and we agreed to go out for a curry after the game. However due to some complicated travelling arrangements that's now not possible and so I'm wondering about a pre-match curry instead. Are there any decent curry...

    Getting an "App" built?

    To cut a long story short. I have come up with an idea for an mobile phone app (in principle) that should benefit my business immensely. It is rather complicated, but I am sure it can be done. So looking for a bit of pro advice. Does anyone have any contacts in the "app building" market, that...
  12. Good News From The Training Ground.

    Just got back from the training ground. Started off badly with hearing about basic things the club could not afford and that they have to pay up front in cash if they really need something as no credit is given to them now, and everyone is chasing them for money. But I ended up coming away much...

    Sub-Forums

    Hi mods, This is just my personal view, but I am not a fan of all the sub-forms... There is too much 'click-through' and for the casual user, for example the TechnoZone was fine as it was and didn't really need to be split up further... also it may mean that people with a general interest in...

    Is this the beginning of the destruction......

    Is this the beginning of the destruction of the mould of British politics or is it the beginning of the destruction of the Liberal Democrats? Quite a day yesterday, which ended with probably the only really practical solution on the table. Briefly, hopes were raised on the idea of some...

    Milner?! **** off!

    For the second year in a row, the PFA have managed to take a really simple concept and get it really wrong. Last year’s decision to make Ryan Giggs ‘Player of the Year’ instead of Steven Gerrard made as much sense as giving ‘Star Wars’ an Oscar instead of ‘The Hurt Locker’. Just because it was...
