    QPR tickets

    [quote user="PurpleCanary"][quote user="Canary Man of Kent"][quote user="PurpleCanary"]

    [quote user="Big Rons Brain"]Got mine too, bloody expensive, 56 quid for the Jarrold Block L (I value view over atmosphere for the home games, must be getting old!)

    Total piss take to have QPR as a A game,  fair enough to pay this for Man U etc. but is well OTT for QPR.

    Still, couldn''t resist, will need the petrol for a round trip from Sheffield as well, more fool me!

    For this season there is an A+ category above A, but even so QPR as an A game is not justified. It is a B category at best.

    [/quote]

    There was A+ last year too wasn''t there?

    Given the level of demand for tickets, I think this clearly is an A game. Surely, the first home game of the season, the last game of the season, and the big guns in between will all be at least rated A.

    No. I don''t believe so. It was As, Bs and Cs only. As to your argument, I disagree. I doubt it being the first game of the season has come into the reckoning at Carrow Road. And making QPR an A sets a level. What fixtures would be rated below QPR to go into the B and C categories? Reading and Wigan probably. Swansea and Stoke possibly. WBA at a pinch. Not many.

    [/quote]

    Fairly obviously to me at least, the tickets with a lower rating than QPR will be those for which it is anticipated that there will be less demand. 

     

    What grade was Villa on the last day of last season? I''m fairly sure it was an A. If that wasn''t down to likely levels of demand, what was it? Also, do you think that the big teams are rated as the higher grade just because there big teams, or because there will be greater demand for tickets?

    QPR tickets

    [quote user="Sussexyellow"]

    [quote user="87canary"]Got mine too. Seems ridiculous that a team that just scraped survival is classed as a Grade A game though. I suppose it is the first home game of the season though Was also alarming how few seats were available at 9am compared to last year :/[/quote]

    Yes got tickets but once again could not get two together (in a decent viewing position).

     

    It is a concern that seemingly few tickets are available when they first go on sale. It is a number of games since block H in the Jarrold has been available to home support. Wolves is the last game that I can recollect. Certainly it was available for the QPR game last year. Has the club been told to make more tickets available to the away team? Does anybody know?

     

    If that is so it is going to be a struggle for even super members to pick up tickets this season as demand will far exceed supply.

     

    COYY

    I don''t find it surprising that QPR fans are travelling in large numbers for their first away game of the season.

     

    Since the Wolves game, we''ve played against Everton at Easter, Man City, Liverpool and Villa. They naturally all have big away followings. That is why block H was not available to home fans.

     

    It will be available during the course of the season I''m sure.

     

    I don''t understand the general sense of surprise that there is a very high level of deman for tickets for our first home game of the season.

    SSN: Butterfield offer rejected, probable tribunal

    [quote user="NCFCPaul"]Baldyboy, from what i understand for compensation to be due for a player under 24 the club losing the player has to make a new contract offer to that player of equal or greater value than their previous one. Without this all players released under the age of 24 would cost their new clubs money, even if the parent club didnt want them. However i dont think this is what the barnsley fan meant, he meant that Barnsley should have tied Butterfiled down to a new contract and not allowed the situation to arise where he could leave for very little cash.[/quote]

    You are correct regarding the new contract offer rule.

    I think reliable - Preece was at Barnsley last season I believe.

    Not surprised in the slightest that Fulham was oversubscribed, London games are always incredibly popular.  Can travel by rail/tube from Norfolk, and we have long had a very healthy fanbase living in London anyway

    Yep - can''t remember the last time we didn''t sell out a London game - in particular a Saturday fixture.

    Group 4 ballot. Group 3 all fine - as Pete said.

    Warm weather breaks...the stats?

    [quote user="GJL Mid-Norfolk Canary"]Wouldn''t profess to know any full stats on this but very famously of course a few seasons back after Glenn Roeder pulled the team away from the relegation zone with a 13 match unbeaten run, took the squad away to Spain on a training camp only to return with a 4-1 defeat at Leicester which then turned into a disastrous run of results which put us firmly back in the relegation zone, which we only survived on the penultimate match.[/quote]

     

    Unrelated to the trip I''m sure - and that is a bit of an exaggeration, we never went back into the relegation zone!

    Some advice please

    I find ale snobbery most irritating - I like ale, I like stout and some of the European lagers I''ve had are some of the best beers I''ve ever enjoyed, I''m not a big wheat beer fan but I know a lot of people are. To say all lager is not beer is not only factually incorrect but also incredibly narrow minded - yes, granted, there''s a lot of fizzy piss out there drunk by teenagers - but there''s some really great lager too.

    Korey

    Why are they playing him as a wide man??

     

    Seems a bit odd to me.

    [quote user="Shankslad"]

    Car parking - I would use county hall, very handy for A47/A11 cost £6.

     

    Eating - Loads of good suggestions made on here so take your pick.   Tombland would be my preference.   You could consider a visit to Yellows just to keep it in the family!

     

    Have to take issue about the beer - you don''t have beer in Belgium and Germany.   You have lager!   A horrible continental concoction of fizzy chemicals and froth.   You need to take opportunity to drink some good ole English Ale and in nect to no time you''ll be morris dancing all over the town!!!

    [/quote]

    That is just total garbage - lager, ale, mild, wheat and stout are all types of beer. You seem to be confusing Real Ale with beer.

    Some advice please

    As the game is on a Sunday, there''s no need to pay for parking as parking restrictions are relaxed.

     

    I would (and did on Sunday just gone) park on one of the streets just off Hall Road and very close to the Kings Arm''s pub which is a great place pre game.

     

    Getting away from there is quite easy too - a bit of traffic, but nothing like the kind of thing you have to deal with getting out of County Hall.

     

    Route-wise - A11/M11 everytime.
