  1. Season Ticket Spot Checks

    That from LATD just sums up some stewards and the problems with the policy. It relies on common sense as the club state. However a good number of the stewards simply lack the necessary common sense. I might be wrong but I hope I'm not. It feels like from the LET story the club are climbing down to an extent ie the night games being relaxed and the common sense etc. Hope this is the case as I and I think everyone else accepts people jibbing is in out of order. However it's weird the focus on the free under 8's. I had 2 free last year both cost this year though and won't be coming night games still, simply out I was ready for jacking it if they started insisting we move and my Dad said the same so let's hope this is just a crackdown on those it was needed and a few stewards being OTT.
  2. Season Ticket Spot Checks

    I can understand the principle of what they're doing and why but it's being handled badly and is flawed. You gain nothing from a cost perspective from buying an adult one with a child one so no incentive I can see to anyone doing it other than to bring a kid along. As others have said you get to know the people around you as well and as time goes on if the kid misses a game you want to go along and sit in the same seat. What on earth sense does it make to move someone? Rovers are quite simply going to lose fans doing this and that;s they last thing they can afford.
  3. Season Ticket Spot Checks

    I'd appreciate the clarity too thanks. Absolutely full understand the need to deal with any misuse of the tickets. However I don't bring the kids to many midweek games and they sometimes will miss the odd game too. It's never been suggested before you always have to have then in attendance. Seems a strange one.
  4. Wigan Tickets

    The calendar on their site suggests tickets are on sale from tomorrow for them. So presume they'll provide us with details and they'll go on sale next week for us.
  5. Wigan Tickets

    There's no spare slots for it to move and still be on TV, so the only other reason to move would be police. It's never been an issue in other years and it's not late on enough for it to be that high profile. I'd be surprised if the reason was anything other than Wigan being a bit of a noddy outfit.
  6. Wimbledon

    They will certainly be no pushovers, look like a team largely made up of athletes and battlers so will have to be careful not to get caught out for sure. Does worry me a little when i read people complaining that Mowbray shouldn't be saying he expects a tough contest etc and we should set up to hammer them. Clearly we'd all love that but the reality is we just need to win first and foremost. It;'s inevitable there are going to be slip-ups at certain points this season, hopefully with the momentum we've got tomorrow won't be the day.
  7. Scunthorpe United v ROVERS

    Anyone just saying I could explain it but it's beyond you is just being a bit sad tbh, however it's way off topic and as others have said living in the past is pretty pointless state in my opinion. In terms of Whittingham, was thinking about this the other day and I think it's fair to say the system Mowbray wants to play by and large it's tough to see Whittingham starting. However we're going to get injuries and also whilst on Tuesday I'd not have played him, on Saturday against a team packing men behind the ball more he could well be invaluable. He is the kind of player who isn't going to run all day and make tonnes of tackles. but he will make the killer pass to unlock a defence.
  8. Scunthorpe United v ROVERS

    Looking forward to this one, new ground for me and most so I'd expect a decent following despite the midweek and number of games coming thick and fast. A really tough test as well, don't think Scunthorpe are as strong in the middle as they were last year, I remember watching them in the play offs against MIllwall and despite losing over two legs Dawson in the middle was totally dominant. Lost him to Bury in the summer and the lad they've brought in from Rangers is injured. They are clearly solid defensively and Madden and Morris will be a handful for sure. Still feel if we can have the same mentality and attitude as we had on Saturday we can turn them over. Despite being a new ground for us, and as mentioned a relatively new ground overall they are supposed to moving to a new ground, been delayed for years but they did get planning permission, although did fall through but still in the pipeline.

    Yeah there was a Canada based poster who confirmed they were lining up or had already done so a friendly but hadn't announced so you'd expect given how key Mulgrew & Evans are to their respective countries it's likely to be rearranged.
  10. Wharton

    Ok so I'll try and make it my final response as appreciate we're in danger of just repeating ourselves but absolutely agree with the first line. Yes we've seen it, yes most contracts have it and yes. Second point there is very often smoke without fire, I think all clubs suffer from it but I'd say 9/10 there is a logical explanation for why a player isn't playing especially now we have a real manager. Doesn't mean we have to agree with everything he says and does mind.
  11. Wharton

    I think that's the point tomphil though. I'd honestly say the majority would agree with your point that he could have done a better job than the two you mention. I think the frustration for me is people continually putting two and two and making five, and there are at least a few mischief makers only too happy to spread stuff. We told cast iron that Wharton wasn't playing due to the club ensuring subsequent managers kept him out to save a bob or too. Last season I could have half believed that given the situation. However under Mowbray it was illogical especially when he was clearly spending a reasonable budget at this level. At the end of the day i'm sure we all want the youngsters to come through and lead this club on, when they are ready, hopefully this puts to bed any of this rumour mill stuff.
  12. Rochdale Away

    Crikey that sounds bizarre in the least. Hadn't realised it was supposed to meningitis with Camps and sounds like a few others though not seen that confirmed anywhere. Shame for them but the bottom line is with the amount of players out we need to be beating these without a shadow of doubt.
  13. Rochdale Away

    Pretty sure Andy Holt on twitter confirmed in the league at least that the away team received no share of the ticket revenue.
  14. Academy & U'21's

    Oh don't get me wrong, I don't in anyway believe he'd do it deliberately and/or any conspiracy reasons. Just some managers over the years are big on pushing kids through and some are more reluctant to trust them. For me he has so far seemed a little more in the latter category. However as you say no way would he do it for anything other than correct reasons in his view of what is best for the team.
  15. Academy & U'21's

    I'll happily give Mowbray benefit of the doubt and hope over the next few months if form continues some of these lads are given a chance. It is a concern though given how they're playing that we're bringing external people in ahead of them, or seemingly at least.
