  1. I've been checking this forum almost constantly since the crash happened, but haven't posted anything up until now. I've just felt numb all week. All those emotions of winning the league a couple of years ago have come back to me, but this time they are the polar opposites, and it feels like a part of the joy of that season has been lost forever. What has been uplifting this week though is the response of people throughout football, which has been wonderful, and the way the club has handled the situation, which has been impeccable throughout. I went to the stadium a few days ago to pay my respects, and I was at the game in Cardiff, and what I've seen over the last week or so has made me immensely proud of this football club. I never met Khun Vichai, and up until the last few days I was I was unaware of many of the things he did for the club and the city. It's clear that he was a lovely man. The only contact I had with him was in Bruges, before the Champions League game. I went for a wander on my own away from the main square, looking for a historic old pub I'd read about on the fringes of the old town. I was strolling along an empty street, alongside one of the canals, looking down at a map, when I looked up and saw some instantly recognisable faces. Vichai, Top and a group of friends and family were on a small, open top boat, doing a canal tour. I stopped walking, and as I saw them they all made eye contact with me. I gave a little wave and they all instantly waved back. What struck me was the smile on Vichai's face, it was the same smile I'd seen thousands of times already that day, of a football supporter buzzing with anticipation of a first journey in the Champions League, and it's a smile I'll always remember.
  2. I've said it before, but if Puel goes I'd love to see Jorge Sampaoli. Aggressive pressing, fast transitions and high energy attacking football, just want we want to see. He's got a temper too which would suit those that want a bit of passion, and he's currently available as far as I know after leaving the Argentina job. Did well with numerous club sides in South America, as well as Sevilla and the Chile national team. Iborra was his captain at Sevilla so there's a link there. Only negative is I doubt he speaks any English.

    Away priority points

    Yes, it's a bit of a pain to get it but for anyone that needs to know, then there is a way of doing it. The points built up before that start of last season are added in bulk so it's only a case of adding the points since then which only takes a few seconds. I wasn't aware that info drops off the bottom of the list, I don't have anyone on my family unit, i just add them temporarily when i need to check. I don't know why they don't just add the 2 numbers (home priority points and away priority points) next to the person's name anyway. For any website developer it would take about 2 minutes.

    Away priority points

    You can get their points total, as follows: Log in to lcfc.com Go to the Tickets tab Hover over your name in the top-right and click Personal Details, taking you to you Welcome tab. Under your 'My friends and family' list, click 'Manage my relationships' Select Edit on the person whose points you want to check Tick 'This person shares my family unit', and click OK Go to your Away Priority Points tab. The points for person you added to your 'family unit' will now appear there, but you'll have to add them up. One thing I'd be cautious of is that I'm sure I read somewhere that someone can only belong to one users' family unit, therefore if the person you add to yours already belongs to another, they may be removed from their original one. Therefore I'd only do it if you know the other person is aware your doing it, just in case.

    England at KP Tickets

    Plenty of tickets left, just had a quick check on FA website. £55 tickets: B1 (497 available), B3 (541), H1 (174), L1 (179) £45 tickets: A1 (276), C1 (70), C2 (174), G1 (186), G2 (3), M3 (687), M4 (222), M2 (238) £35 tickets: M1 (261) Presumably the tickets in B1 and B3 were originally held back for corporate tickets or whatever, and they couldn't shift them so they're now on general sale. Got mine in SK3 but Kop looks like it's sold out now. The website doesn't include family stand, not sure it's because they're sold out or because they're not available through the website. I'm going, although I'm struggling to get any enthusiasm for it but it's not often England will play there so might as well embrace it. Tickets are far too expensive though.

    Mobile data at KP Stadium?

    I think there's some rule in place where the Premier League does not allow score updates to be shown during the match. The problem with mobile data not working at half time would be reduced considerably if the club put the latest scores up quickly on the big screens. We have to wait about 10 minutes (if they appear at all), and meanwhile about 25,000 people are simultaneously trying to get the scores on their phone. Put them up immediately after the half time whistle goes, and I would guess that there'd be a large reduction in data usage. I don't want to just see Premier League scores either, they should put Championship scores up, and if it was up to me I'd put up League 1 and 2 as well. They can still keep the existing messages etc. on the screens, just scroll the scores along the bottom of the screen throughout half time. Incidentally, I'm on EE and previous seasons could usually get the scores updates up eventually, but on Saturday couldn't get a thing. As for the 17/17 voting against having a decent signal, when reading the minutes from the meeting, it looks like the club and the police representative spent several minutes convincing everyone that a good mobile data signal was a bad thing (mainly for betting purposes) immediately before the vote, and therefore that clearly affected the vote. You need to bear in mind these are the same people that, at the same meeting, complained about people standing and blocking their view, and then voted against being in favour of introducing standing areas which would resolve that issue.

    Keith Weller lounge

    Is there any difference between the Keith Weller Lounge and the Walkers Hall? I've never been in either but might try one for this game as it's only £20.

    Southampton Away

    There's several hundred left and they're on general sale. You can just just go to lcfc.com, register if you've not already done so, pick the seats you want and and buy them!

    Southampton Away

    The reason it's not selling quickly is because everyone's waiting for blocks 44 and 45 to open up!

    Stadium Expansion Plan Meeting

    After last night's meeting I was hoping they'd be a bit more info finding it's way onto here today. So far, piecing together the scraps of info, seems like they're planning a extension of about 10,000 seats on the East Stand, with an arena and a hotel, and that it all looks good (and might look from the outside like some gold coloured glass King Power building in Phuket). What about the stand itself? Will the extra seats just be bolted on behind the existing ones (like was done at Anfield), or somehow sit above (like the old double decker)? Will the new roof hug the stand low enough to hold the noise in (as new stands with high open roofs can lose a lot of the noise)? Will it be designed to facilitate a possible further extension (i.e. potentially expand the North and/or South Stand later)? Will the current seats in the East Stand remain as they are, or will there be some modifications to them too? I'm envious of you lucky guys that have seen what's planned.

    Stadium Expansion Plan Meeting

    So, there's at least a couple of people from here going to tonight's meeting. Please let us know afterwards what they have planned.

    Southampton Away

    Third game of the season, on the south coast on a bank holiday weekend and they've not took the full allocation! Only got 2610 tickets! Who makes these decisions?! Hopefully there's still the option to take the full amount if the initial allocation sells quickly.
  13. Did anyone on here that submitted an application to attend next week's meeting get a successful response? The deadline for informing us was 5pm yesterday and I didn't hear anything, so obviously I'm not invited. I'd be interested to know how many people did succeed, and those that are going please can you give some feedback afterwards about what their plans are for the stadium.

    General Sale Tickets

    No he doesn't need to register his grandson. As they are now on general sale, he (grandad) can get all the tickets he needs (although I'm assuming there's a limit e.g. 4) on his reference number. As the original question was about 3 weeks ago I'm sure he's sorted the tickets out by now anyway!

    Would you like safe standing?

    Rail seats are used in Germany however the majority of standing areas are terracing, just like we used to have here. I've stood on the yellow wall in Dortmund. The front two thirds (maybe about 15,000 people) is a terrace. The rear third is rail seats. I've stood behind the goal at Schalke, again a big old style terrace. 3 of the 4 stands at Burton Albion are terraces, although not very deep. It's wrong to say the only standing that exists is rail seats. Attached is a picture I just found of Dortmunds terrace.
