  1. Grand Place and Pitta Street surely...
  2. Good news. Searching online does not reveal how many tickets each PDC HD TV subscriber can buy in the pre-sale period.... I assume 2 per membership??
  3. I have been to several PDC Darts events such as Premier league (in Glasgow), etc. Have always only been able to get tickets for the arena upper levels which whilst being more affordable and you are in the venue which is OK but you are a fair distance from the action. I would always buy tickets if I could for the table seats on the lower section of any arena for the darts but every time I try, none are available, despite going online as soon as the tickets go on sale. I was told a while back that if you are a subscriber to PDC HD TV (at a cost of £50 / year), you can get to book tickets 2 days before the public sale. I dont mind doing that to be honest but dont want to do it if I will still be pissing into the wind for the tickets and only the 'special people' get them. Anyone got any advice??? p.s. It will take a lot to repeat those scenes with big John Henderson in Aberdeen against Michael van Gerwyn.
  4. ODDSCHECKER: Now 4/6 ON for Steve Clarke, Derek McInnes 11/10. Moyes is next at 16.... others 25 to 30. It is 3 weeks to next game and no squad announced.... this is getting ridiculous! THE PROBLEM: In my opinion, it is the total tardiness and lack of information of the SFA camel coats. The criticism they have received from various football people and pundits in totally deserved. THEY ARE A LARGE PART OF THE PROBLEM. IMPORTANT DECISIONS BUT DISCONNECTED FROM THE REAL WORLD CAMEL COAT PRAWN CANAPE SCOFFING SILVER SPOON UP YER PRIVATE SCHOOL ARSE BRIGADE....
  5. One thing is for absolute sure... information is scarce and the SFA are true to form very very very last minute.com. The SFA knobs need looked at very closely - it is less than a month to the next game.
  6. Buying any tickets from the Belgium FA is a serious challenge (if you are not a Belgian resident and registered with the FA). There are so many rules and regs and you have to jump through hoops to attend a game sometimes. Scotland end only available for this one I suspect.
  7. I logged in yesterday to check out what was there. My friends and family members were up to date although one person on there has been dead for 3 years now - SSC were informed twice on this some time ago and another 2 are no longer paid up SSC members one did not renew in 2018 and one did not renew in 2016 - I think). My points total was showing as 15... and I thought I would check it and by my calculations, I should be on 16... Various others in our group don't seem to have correct points totals (some are going to work it out but obviously cant as they cannot log in). I thought I would login with my new password this evening and send a polite mail to SSC with the list of points I should have.... and of course, login seems to be disabled or not working in any case. I wonder what sort of system performance we should expect when the season tickets go on sale on 5th February? Couldn't be any more screwed up and inconvenient than the last attempt at selling season tickets I guess. I hope SSC have realised that some people will be looking for 10, 15 or 20 season tickets as a group - that was a huge problem last time around. The only positive thing I can see is that SFA have adopted a less greedy approach to ticket pricing which means we will have 4 more season applications than we had last time... most of those not applying were due to overpricing. I do get the feeling that the super duper new points system was badly thought out and is going to become unmanageable quite quickly!!!
  8. And one thing at least should be blatantly obvious to SSC is that they should learn from this is that they will have to start with Albania tickets soon so that everything can be in place before people travel... To not even have the Israel tickets available and in hand to post out and its only 8 days before the match is a ludicrous situation...
  9. Lets hope they do get them sent out... I am not leaving until Wednesday so not worried but lots of others could get screwed around... However, if there is the total chaos of 100% Pick Up, I will be quite pissed off if the SSC start blaming other associations, etc. It cant always be someone elses fault or due to something else outside you control when virtually every single thing related to tickets takes place at the very very very last minute. Remember how Bertie Vogts who used the blame game approach for every match.
  10. SFA / SSC use of technology has historically been a complete shambles and problems with almost everything they have ever tried to do. I did not expect this new system to be anything other than a complete cock up - as it has proved to be. The SSC told us that the ultra late membership info was so that they could test their systems and train people, etc to make sure it all went smoothly... what an unprofessional shambles it is!!! Could they perhaps employ a professional and competent company to manage their IT???
  11. Why is it not possible for the SFA to make an online system easy to use. EVERY SINGLE thing they have ever done online has been crap and this latest thing is even crapper than things in the past. I have managed to renew my membership eventually but seriously struggling to renew my dads membership - he certainly wont manage it. I know know of 2 or 3 people that started trying to renew and then just gave up and said fuck them. Even once I renewed, comes up and tells me I have 9 points.... Erm I think that would be 18 if it is 2 points for an away game. They spent months working on this and the result is total incompetence. What a surprise. The SFA / SSC really need to waken up on so many fronts. Shambles.
  12. Regardless of the result of the Tory snap election on 8th June, I will be very happy with a chant to the England fans on 10th June along the lines of YOU CAN STICK YER F'IN UNION UP YER A*SE. Or something to ask them if they can take Ruth Davidson back where she belongs?? There is room for developing a chant as well dedicated to Theresa May along the lines of the David Beckham chant that we had at the last England game at Hampden. Just slightly more difficult that Theresa May doesn't rhyme as well as Posh Spice???
  13. Anyone know when the Canada tickets are likely to be sent out. I paid for ours a while ago. Just thought they would normally be sent out pronto when bought and paid for. Still feeling rather underwhelmed by the fixture but probably feel a bit differently after a couple of swallaes at the Hibs club before the game.
  14. I'll be at the rest of the games - home and away mate. Have been supporting / attending for many many years to give up as easy as that even given the last series of manager flops from Bertie Vogts onwards. I would love Scotland to qualify and a reduction in faceless idiot trolls like you trolling round trying to take the rise out of people and start arguments.
  15. Its all bollocksed and anyone that keeps a flame for possible second place needs to get a life. Humped in England I can accept - expected I guess. Humped in Slovakia like that shows WE ARE NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO QUALIFY (although we did have a few chances). The draw against Lithuania was poor and we could have easy lost that one as well. Dont get your hopes up IMO another total flop and under a manager I thought would come good after some of the crud we have had to endure. I would love Darren Fletcher to end up taking us forward at some stage. With all his medical conditions and stuff his playing career is difficult and limited so why not use his experience to take Scotland to some great away wins and qualification. His heart is there.
