Banter / 2017/2018 Transfer window thread
« on: May 11, 2017, 07:12:10 am »
Well it's started already and moved underway  - don't think this Wilder geezer knows what he's doing. Doesn't he know we always leave things until the last minute to keep the players guessing and on their toes.....none of this early season signing nonesence.........

Anyway, here's the thread to talk about them.

Names banded about or signed so far:

Chefd Evans - done deal

Enda Stevens - https://www.thesun.ie/sport/football/974149/enda-stevens-lands-championship-move-as-sheffield-united-swoop-for-portsmouth-star/

Erhun Otzhumer - god he's been a pain in the arse for us. Nice to have him on this side

Even heard rumours of Jags

What you heard?

Banter / Match streaming for overseas Blades

I wonder f The a Blades will take this up........


Banter / Chesterfield - Last Match of this incredible season
« on: April 24, 2017, 02:25:32 pm »
So what are your plans for the big day?

For a few of us the plans are as follows (all welcome to join us)

9:30am (some have suggested even earlier, but on the basis I have a teenager to get out of bed I stand no chance of before) - Benjamin Huntsman for a quick Brekkie
10:00 am onwards - pop next door to the Tap and Tankard (which we were reliably informed before the Bradford game opens at 10am)
Kick off - party time........
I suspect there may be a few beers post match as well, although on the basis I have to get up at 4am the following day to drive to the airport will be minimal for me.

Banter / MK Dons Away
« on: April 02, 2017, 08:35:30 am »
So these go on sale next week and everyone has different points and different days they can buy. With 7,500 available there's a chance these won't make general sale. It hasn't stated either way, but suspect more may be released given how many MK Dons have given to away supporters in the past, but there's no guarantee of that.

Who wants to go in a group and if so how many points have you got so we can look at when they can be purchased - bear in mind we want to give everyone the best possible opportunity to get tickets but also can't risk not getting them at all so there's no guarantee everyone will be able to get a ticket in the group. I suspect the cut off will be somewhere around the 10k points mark.

Additionally - any Blades out there with a significant number of points who aren't going, want to help fellow Blades out? Don't post your membership number online but you can PM me.

I'm happy to co-ordinate tickets if we can do it online - would need you to already be registered for online purchases and then to authorise me to purchase tickets for you online (I can provide you with my membership number).

Banter / Port Vale Away - Good Friday
« on: April 02, 2017, 08:19:36 am »
So quick scoot round and this looks like a favourable venue for pre-match refreshment. 10 minute walk away, recognised by CAMRA and up to 10 Real Ales on draft.


Of course, open to suggestions if anyone knows somewhere better........

Banter / Season Ticket renewals

Done mine already!

Banter / Northampton Game beam back.........

After selling out in just 2 days do you wanna sit on a hill outside Northamptons ground or in the South Stand?

Banter / Away Games 2017
« on: January 19, 2017, 10:50:24 pm »
OK - First of my planned away trips for the remainder of this season.........


Anyone else in (more than likely on the train - ground is about a mile away from the station)?

Rumour has it there may be a further 1400 tickets available.

Banter / MK Dons away - 22nd April
« on: January 09, 2017, 08:46:14 pm »
It's the last away game of the season and there's a lot of interest being shown right now.

Well a few of us are planning on staying overnight and 'enjoying' the celebrations!!! Southampton, Roma and me have already booked into the hotel which is part of the ground (well it gets free parking!!) but if you fancy it you need to be quick. Hilton have an offer on at the moment. If you're a Hilton Honours member there is a great rate available (if you're not then simply join up as part of the process) and it's £43 for a double room for the night (non changeable/refundable) or £55 (flexible). If you don't want to join up, book through Booking.com and it's only slightly more expensive - but book quickly - it's already been booked 56 times today!!!

Banter / Charlton Away
« on: November 11, 2016, 06:35:41 pm »
Are we still doing this??

If so, anyone organising tickets? I've got enough points for 1 now. I can go down tomorrow if everyone else has enough.

Banter / Chesterfield Away - Sun 13th Nov
« on: October 12, 2016, 01:16:33 pm »

I'm likely to be getting my ticket Mon 31st October, cos I want to make sure I get one and likely to be a sell out. If anyone else wants one and has enough points (20,000) on that day I'm happy to collect yours.

If you have got enough points but aren't going and fancy 'sharing the love' so someone else can get a ticket, then again drop me a note do I can co-ordinate.

Banter / Bolton v Blades - (first match of the season) - 6th Aug 2016
« on: June 28, 2016, 12:38:31 pm »
OK - so we've talked about it as a possibility - who's up for a CB outing?

2ndly, what we doing about getting there. Any volunteer drivers or do the train (about £20 from what I've just looked at).

I'm certainly up for it cos I'm missing the first home game the following week.
