I have just realised that the Rivers game is all ticket and is kicking off at 1 O Clock on Saturday.
Stupid time for a kick off ....

On a slightly random note...ever noticed how the CEO of Dynamo Dresden and Sam the Eagle are never seen in the same room at the same time?

Early kick off to allow various divisions of TVP to play with their 'crowd control toys' ...especially the new ones that Santa Stansfeld sanctioned? ...... it seems TVP are looking forward to try herding our visitors from NW Brizzle, collectively aka Gas which is 'a substance or matter in a state in which it will expand freely to fill the whole of a container, having no fixed shape ' ..... herding cats may be a simpler option?

Early pre match buffet at The 'bird will no doubt be interrupted and disturbed by some of TVPs 'units' in the name of 'crowd safety' ( and checking out some of chefs quince specials on the quiet too? )

Funny old game football sure is! ...Doncaster away their SLO went more than the extra mile to ensure visiting supporters recieved a genuine welcome and felt valued last Saturday, wheras THIS saturday ALL football supporters intending going to watch a match in the same league are inconvenienced by having the kick off time moved from 3pm to1pm, and supporters of both OUFC & Brizzle Rovers are likely to be treated like something thats been stepped in. I know of 5 ST holders who have family members in Bristol, who, in the main are Rovers fans, yet members of the same family are not permitted to go to and watch the match together in Oxford. OUFC Family Club? yeah right!

Not only is the early kick off time totally inconvenient, but the all ticket thing is bizarre in todays world of online ticket system. So an Oxford fan with a track record of attending home games on the online system, can't turn up an hour before kick off and get a ticket when there are 4,000 empty seats or a season ticket holder can't take a guest along at the last minute. I estimate this effect the crowd by at least 1,000, reduced gate receipts of £20k.
This is all because some youngsters had a "to do" on Gloucester Road after the Bristol Rovers game.
I feel the club have given in too easily on this one.

Whilst I agree 100% with you I think in today’s modern day football laws( different to the rest of society) the club probably had little say on tickets.

Unfortunately there are some morons who have no interest in the football but who are intent on spoiling it for others..

There is a part of me that wishes TVP would just stay away, to prove the point.

Problem is, once it all kicks off (and it would) they would then be accused of a complete lack of presence and control and be held to blame for any trouble anyway.... (I’m sure someone on here could find past comments/threads about a lack of policing at certain games)

Either way, TVP will be in the wrong.

When people can’t behave themselves they spoil it for others but generally appear to be blameless because of the go to stance .. Blame TVP.

I’m not a copper and have no friends in plod but I do get mightily pissed off when it is always TVP to blame for any trouble whilst these morons are apparently blameless little angels.

Do me a favour... we don’t want them in the game, they let the club down and they spoil it for others.

If the early kick off and restricted ticket sales have been caused by this (therefore losing the club apparently badly needed cash), perhaps the little idiots who were involved could go and 'support' another team?

Well said, I couldn't agree more. There are some on this Forum who take every opportunity to blame TVP for what happens on match days, whether justified or not. Pathetic!
