Pigs at home weekend after my birthday followed by Norwich away the week after and then I'm in NY on holiday the weekend after that.  Then Ipswich away weekend after Harry's birthday.  Not bad timing for me :ok:

Harry is keen to see the derby game at BDTBL so hoping we'll be able to get tickets with our paltry loyalty points  :^^

NY fixtures are kind as I'm always up in Sheffield for NYE and we have Bolton at home on the 30th  :ok:

3 out of 5 August games are at home, good chance to get some momentum going.

QPR away on a Tuesday night (31 Oct) - can feel a London meeting requiring an overnight stay is in the offing...  Oh, Fulham away also on a Tuesday (6 Mar) so yet another night away then. Chance to cash in some hotel loyalty points  :whi

Just listened to CW's latest RS interview:

"You don't get medals for spunkin' money!"

You can take the man out of Sheffield, but................  :DD

Quality - gotta love the fact he's penned a new deal as well.

Long shot I know, but he has an opportunity to set another record next year - 1st manager to win the title in 3 different EFL leagues in consecutive years!

20-1 according to SkyBet. Worth a few quid?

Has anyone tried iFollow via a VPN yet to see if it works for the live match streaming?

If I log on to the offshore office VPN (which is in Bangladesh) I can see the 110 quid option on the subscribe page for iFollow Blades.   In theory, they should see my IP address as the office and not my UK IP address.  If I get my office manager to use her company credit card to pay, then there should be no way they can tell I'm actually watching in the UK.

Just didn't want to commit to paying the 110 quid only to discover it doesn't work when I try to stream live matches so wondered if anyone had tried it yet (obviously the live games aren't available but the other premium content should be).

I'm old school, as everyone on here knows.

1. Go to the match

2. Listen on RS/BP

3. Stand in John Lewis and watch it on Ceefax

4. Ignore option 3

Planning to have a play this weekend. Been in Spain for the last month and it all looked OK from there but like you was cautious of shelling out. Wanted to have a play via VPN from the UK. I'm also slightly 'tight' about the whole situation when there's the free 'fan stream' on Facebook almost every match now - although when you consider the overall uplift from Bladesplayer annual subscription I sort of think what the hell
