    We are 13 days away from the first match of the season. It appears that we know what the ticket allocation from Preston is. Why on Earth are tickets not yet on sale? It’s going to be an absolute clusterfuck if they leave it any longer.

    Just make it pay on the gate.

    All those people relishing the current owner's riving ban might care to reflect on the impact it may have on decisions being made and the day to day running of the club.

    Half the businesses in the country have been operating quite successfully with people working from home for 18 months now. Why can't Ehab do the same? Unless of course he really does crack a whip...

    The owner is banned from riving? He will have to behave then.

    Ehab can’t drive to the stadium to sell the tickets. Obviously.

    Remember those prehistoric times when you could get talking in the pub on a Friday night and someone mentioned going to a game the day after? You could roll up if there was a space on their bus and hand over some notes and coins or if feeling flush decide to go by train and get a ticket by pushing notes and coins across the counter. Upon arrival after a few beers you strolled to the ground and handed over some more notes or coins. You always had plenty on you as if you ran out there was no means of getting any more.
    How did us primitives manage without all the sophisticated things they have nowadays which make getting to a game so much simpler? What price spontaneity?

    Ah rite, so stupid twat didn't stop to think, or more like just didn't care, about the impact that losing his licence was going to have on his business .... but it's us lot that should stop and think. Got it. :emoticon-0112-wonde
    Maybe if he'd spent more time reading the rules behind the dazzle of the 'free' money (not exactly fine detail even) and other important ongoing business matters rather than spending his time in court and making up embarrassing infantile excuses for his ****ery? But no, it's us who need to stop and think.

    Odd that we didn't at least start selling the tickets at the same time as them, you can't buy away tickets from them.

    Funny thing about the cashless thing being done to 'help reduce queues, increase speed of service and improve hygiene', when I went to buy a ticket at the ground on Saturday, the machines don't do contactless, so they take your card off you and manually type it into a computer keyboard, so it does none of those things.

    WTF is going on with the Preston Tickets? I thought they were going on sale yesterday to members then going on public sale?

    Travelling fans rely on these things being done swiftly.2-3 weeks in advance is fine for rail tickets but when you start drifting into 1-2 week territory your rail fares go up more or less everyday!!!

    I really fancied this game but the nearer it gets to kick off day it gets too pricey!!
