  1. The guests today were ex- Liverpool player Stephen Warnock & the Ex -England women's player Sue Smith ( I think that's her name) , after Dermott had waffled on about why we didn't get a penalty , both guests replied " penalty 100 %". As for the Edison challenge Warnock said " anywhere else on the pitch that's a foul ". So you're right, the guests are the only ones who speak sense.
  2. Just an update, for all those people who sent best wishes & messages of support. He is much better & is now waiting in hospital to have a device implanted, that if his heart goes into life-threatening irregular rhythm again will shock it back to normal automatically. He was reflecting yesterday just how lucky he'd been that it happened where it did, with the brilliant paramedic team just a few metres away. He's hoping to be home for christmas, but we'll have to see.
  3. Think my wife has her eyes on it for Boxing Day, ( glad me & my lad are in the family stand ) . Thanks for the best wishes.
  4. Many thanks for your kind messages, i'm sure 6 points from the next 2 games would cheer him up
  5. Thanks for the good wishes. You're right about the heroics they perform, I understand they shocked him whilst still in his seat, after they cut through the 5 layers he was wearing! . The defrib machines are such a godsend, the amount of lives they save shouldn't be underestimated.
  6. Hi, thanks for your concern, the gentleman was my dad. His life was saved by the prompt actions of the paramedics & the medical team at the stadium. He had to be shocked 3 times with the portable defribrillators they carry, after his heart rhythm went haywire.He had treatment in the medical room at the stadium & was taken to the LRI, before being rushed to Glenfield General. Amazingly today he was sitting up in a chair wired to monitors. They are doing tests to find out what caused his heart to malfunction.The doctors said if it had happened anywhere else but where it did, with the paramedics only a few metres away, he wouldn't have survived, so we have a lot to be grateful for. I was elsewhere in the stadium with my son & because it happened near full-time I wasn't aware anything had happened until I was walking back to the car. He won't be up & about for the Boxing Day match, but fingers crossed he'll be back in his seat sometime in the New Year.
  7. Family of 4 with one side of me left at half-time & didn't return. The 2 blokes the otherside arrived 15 minutes after kick-off, spent the entire first half looking at their phones. Left at half-time for another drink, both came back,then 5 minutes later one went for a pi$$ , then both left at about 85 mins. Then there's people who would love to be there but can't get tickets!
  8. Thanks for that, looks like should be ok for family stand, fingers crossed.
  9. As anybody any idea how many tickets are left for this? I can't buy until Monday ( all members), I v'e been to all home matches this season so far, but fear that there won't be any seats together left. I sit in the family stand so would need 1 adult & under 16.
  10. Not according to Mercury website, that says Thursday 8.45am on the Zoe Ball breakfast show on BBC radio 2. Seems odd I must admit.
  11. Currently top of their league & in a cup final, now riding at Beaumont Leys, were they have been since re-forming in 2011. 28 years after Blackbird Road was closed.
  12. Don't think we should take too much notice of the bookies, look who they had to win league 2 last season.... that didn't quite work out did it .
