Re: Season Tickets 2021/2022

They've just announced annual parking passes at £159 a pop. Covers you for all home league and cup games - but if match-by-match parking is only a fiver a time, we'd need to play an additional NINE cup matches at home to warrant getting the pass instead... Got a notification to say that these are n...

I see that Laurel Hubbard went out of the weightlifting due to her dodgy snatch.

Re: Season Tickets 2021/2022

That's good news.

I note that our average attendance in 19/20 was 11,480.

So, what can we reasonably expect this time out? 12,000 + the away end?

Must be very few athletes as dominant in their respective disciplines as Rojas is in the women's triple jump. Absurd display, that.
And still I feel sorry for her that her third attempt was disqualified. Unbelievable display.

Bit easier this time round than the last 5 years surely?
Yes and no, Dibbs. As my years advance I have to remind myself regarding those who were here last season too 😉

Re: The Olympics

Who tf is coaching the UK starts?? He's saying he got cramp in his calf so he "Just moved". I thought it was only me who jumps out of bed by that distance on getting calf cramp. I'm sorry but I'm struggling to believe him. As Denise Lewis just said, he should've stuck his hand up - he didn't. I'm m...

Re: The Olympics

Regarding her injury, and I've absolutely no doubt that she'll have received the best medical attention and available advice, but who decides, and at what point, that we send Dina Asher-Smith with a six-week-old? hamstring tear rather than replace her in Team GB? fecking difficult decision either wa...

This week I chiefly predict that as with previous opening weeks I'll be printing off the squad list to do a who's who! :D

Re: CLUB BUSINESS/SUNDRIES ETC.

So here a question for the group - now that figures are available (chiefly), how close were we to actually going / being allowed to go out of business?

Re: The Olympics

Huge Golf fan anyway, but I'm sure the tension of this play-off will have had plenty of casual observers on the edges of their seats. There are, of course, only three medal places available, which has seen us have a seven-man play-off (including Casey and McElroy) for bronze. They needed an addition...

Sorry to learn that, TW; I hope you have the best afternoon you can.

Post match, can someone please share with the group as to what, if any, are the covid restrictions? I for one am at a loss.

Cheers.
Zero covid restrictions apparent.
Cheers, Dave.

Re: CLUB BUSINESS/SUNDRIES ETC.

Interesting. Cheers. So we're headed off towards Dicky's Meadow again, would you say? No need to panic. FV have said that the imminent debts are covered and I see no reason to challenge that. FV have taken on quite a big commitment in the £28.5million they seem to have agreed to pay for the Group a...

Your limited knowledge is erm..... limited. End of. What comments have you to make regarding our ROIC for the same period? There wasn't any ROIC. Someone asked Kieran Maguire about the gearing ratio. There isn't a gearing ratio either because the owners equity was swallowed up in FV's first year. B...
