  Matchday Tickets
Posted by: spireitematt - 19-01-2019, 19:42 - Forum: Chesterfield - Replies (4)

At Chesterfield FC, we want to make sure that all of our supporters receive a fast and efficient service when purchasing match tickets.

However, as part of the ongoing FA enquiries and in light of the recent Banning Orders issued by the club, the following changes will be implemented with immediate effect:

  • Match tickets must now be recorded against your Customer Record on our ticketing system.
  • You may be asked to provide proof of ID, including age. Please bring this ID with you.
  • Online tickets will now be available up until two hours before kick-off for collection and up until one hour before kick-off with the 'Print at Home’ facility.
  • Ticket office windows will close 15 minutes before kick-off.
  • There will be ticket checks at turnstiles on matchdays.

    https://www.chesterfield-fc.co.uk/news/2...h-tickets/

    "Match tickets must now be recorded against your Customer Record on our ticketing system" Does this mean everyone who purchases a ticket will be put on a database? What about data protection?

    I can understand being asked for ID if you were buying a Concession ticket for example but not for an Adult. Also when it says "Proof of ID" does that mean names, address, contact details etc as well as your date of birth? You only get asked for ID if you look too young to buy a pint in a pub. Also why shut the ticket office 15 minutes before kick-off it doesn't make sense.

    Makes you wonder if there is an ulterior motive behind this.

  Bolton vs WBA - Match Thread

[Image: WBABolton.jpg]


It already seems half a lifetime since Bolton showed up at the Hawthorns on a sunny August day and began the season by giving us a bloody nose that seemed an ominous sign of things to come. Thankfully, things have improved since, and we have the chance to repay the favour on Monday night in Lancashire.

Last outing against Norwich was a heartening performance in difficult circumstances which nevertheless ended up feeling like two points dropped after the Canaries pinched a late equaliser. Still plenty of time left in the season, and time to shuffle the jigsaw - hopefully even to add a couple of new pieces - but for the time being, we could do with a win to give us a boost.

  Queens Park Rangers v Preston North End Loftus Road 19/1/2019
Posted by: themaclad - 17-01-2019, 16:35 - Forum: Preston North End - Replies (6)

A trip to the capital for yours truly 9.58 am train then tube to Loftus Road to see us play a side who have improved leaps and bounds this season after a dreadful start, they are in a decent run of form 11th in the table but form wise they are 6th, lost last time out at Leeds but have not lost at home since the beginning of December when Hull won there. Have a side with experience plus some good young players and the signing of Nahki Wells very astute he is decent at this level. Beat them 1-0 on the opening day of the season, tougher game this, looks like Clarke misses out so Fisher will play right back, may the Lord have mercy on our souls, Darnell has gone backwards this season.
Be back late on Saturday so match blog on Sunday anyway here;s the usual wiki and team news gubbins.

Queens Park Rangers Football Club, commonly abbreviated to QPR, is a professional association football club based in White City, London. The team currently plays in the Championship, the second tier of English football. Their most recent appearance in the Premier League was during their 2014–15 season. Their honours include winning the League Cup in 1967, as well as the Second Division in 1983 and the Championship in 2011. QPR were also triumphant in the 2013–14Championship playoffs and were winners of the Third Division South in 1947–48 and the Third Division in 1966–67. They were runners-up in the First Division in 1975–76, and reached the final of the 1982 FA Cup.[2]

Queens Park Rangers were founded in 1886 after the merger of Christchurch Rangers and St. Judes Institute. In the early years after the club's formation in its original home of Queen's Park, London, they played their home games at many different grounds, until finally the club settled into its current location at Loftus Road.[2]

Owing to their proximity to the other west London clubs, QPR maintain long-standing rivalries with several other clubs in the surrounding area. The most notable of these are Chelsea, Fulham and Brentford, with whom they contest the West London Derbies.[2]

Team News: Queens Park Rangers

Manager Alex Neil goes from feast to famine at one end of the pitch and vice versa at the other after last weekend’s game.
In the clash with Swansea City at Deepdale he welcomed three new forward-thinking options to his squad, plus others back from injury, however, in the game he lost three defensive options in the space of 35 second half minutes.

Paul Huntington was replaced at half-time with a groin problem and he will be assessed ahead of the trip to the capital. Skipper Tom Clarke then left the pitch with a calf complaint and he too is a doubt for the clash with Steve McClaren’s men.

Finally, Josh Earl - on for Huntington at half-time – was sent off with just under ten minutes left, for two yellow cards, and he will miss the trip to Loftus Road.
Fellow defender, Ben Davies, who has missed the last four games, has made a return to training after a hamstring complaint, along with Louis Moult, who has been out since the Sheffield Wednesday game, just before Christmas, with the same injury.
Transfer window signings Josh Ginnelly and Connor Ripley are awaiting their first opportunities and will push for inclusion, having got run outs in a behind closed doors game against Graham Alexander’s Salford City in midweek.

QPR manager Steve McClaren has a strong squad to choose from. Darnell Furlong did enough for the R's in their FA Cup win over Leeds United to retain his place for last weekend's trip to Sheffield United.

He is likely to continue at right back in the absence of the injured Angel Rangel, who remains sidelined with Geoff Cameron and Tomer Hemed, whilst Massimo Luongo is still on international duty with Australia, having secured them a last 16 place in the Asian Cup with a late winner against Syria in midweek.

Ref Watch: Queens Park Rangers

This weekend, one of the most experienced Championship officials, Andy Madley, will take charge of North End’s game against Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road.
The referee will be taking charge of his third North End game this season. He was the man with the whistle for our home clash with Stoke City back in August, which ended 2-2, and more recently the 4-1 win over local rivals Blackburn Rovers in November.

He has been in charge of some of the Lilywhites’ best moments over the years, most notably the League One Play-Off Final in the 2014/15 season, where a Jermaine Beckford hat-trick led to a convincing 4-0 over Swindon Town at Wembley.

Last season, Andy refereed four PNE games. He oversaw home victories against Reading and the final day 2-1 win over Burton Albion, as well as our games away to Ipswich Town at Portman Road and the return fixture against Reading.
He was in charge for a previous trip to Loftus Road, back in the 2016/17 season. Jermaine Beckford was on the scoresheet and Nedum Onuoha scored an own goal in a 2-0 victory as Simon Grayson’s returned from London with all three points, their first win of the season.
During that campaign, Andy refereed four more North End games including both games against Newcastle United and a 5-0 victory at Deepdale against Bristol City, where Callum Robinson netted twice.

As well as the aforementioned Play-Off Final, the official also had the whistle for another 4-0 victory in the 2014/15 season. North End convincingly beat Scunthorpe United away from home, as Joe Garner netted twice.

He was the referee for our famous Capital One Cup victory over rivals Blackpool in the 2013/14 season. Tom Clarke netted the winner three minutes from time to secure a famous 1-0 win over our rivals.

So far this season, he has refereed 22 games in all competitions, issuing 51 yellow cards and one red card. It will be the first time that he will referee QPR this season, with his last game being in April of the 2017/18 season when Rangers lost 2-1 to Brentford.

Most recently, he was in action in the Emirates FA Cup as he was the man in the middle when Chelsea beat Nottingham Forest 2-0 to secure their place in the fourth round of the competition earlier this month.

On Saturday, the ref will be assisted by Mark Russell and Rob Hyde with Andy Davies as the fourth official.

  Scottish Cup: Celtic v Airdrieonians
Posted by: 0762 - 17-01-2019, 15:31 - Forum: Celtic - Replies (2)

Celtic finally kick off again with a decent cup tie v Airdrie and I expect the Hoops to "fly out the blocks" on Rodgers' instructions and that same "attitude" will follow in the forthcoming league matches. A case of they are top of the Scot Premiership with a "game in hand" and they will now stay in that position and indeed "forge ahead" to another league title and remember they are still on course for a "triple treble".

[Image: c8f0e1f02feea03b72811b4b50c0f4c0--britis...nesday.jpg] v [Image: 220px-Wigan_Athletic.svg.png]

LAST MATCH



So we managed to progress in to the 4th Rd and keep our season alive. A solitary Nuhiu strike with a big deflection was the game winner as we booked a trip to Chelski. It was a good cup tie with chances at both ends and both teams hit the woodwork. It was an improved performance from the Hull game (couldn't get any worse) hopefully they can transfer that to the league form. Dawson, in for Westwood played well and made several saves as he kept a clean his 2nd in a row. Wonder what we might do with Wildsmith who is certainly 3rd choice now, will we let him go out on loan?

THE MATCH



Back to the league and Wigan make the trip to Hillsborough. We lost to these on the opening day of the season so revenge is the order of the day. Wigan have struggled and are 19th in the table and just 6 points above relegation though they did beat Villa 3-0 last time out so should be on a high. Will Grigg is there "star" player but he was on the bench against Villa. Even with a win on Satdi we wont be moving up the league but can put more distance points wise from the bottom 3.

Huddersfield Town v Manchester City
The Premier League
Sunday January 20th - 13:30 ko
at the John Smith's Stadium


[Image: john_smiths_stadium_panoramic_1.jpg]


Huddersfield Town welcome the current Premier League champions, Manchester City to the John Smith's Stadium on Sunday afternoon for the first match following the departure of David Wagner, the man who made all our dreams come true.
It's sure to be a hugely emotional occasion as us fans get a chance to pay our tribute to not just a great manager, but a great bloke. Wagner transformed this club from a Championship club treading water, to .......... a Championship club punching well above it's weight in a league way above their means, playing against teams full of the world's best players, whose finances dwarf our own. The fact that we're struggling now is not his fault. Well it is in a way, for over achieving in the first place. Whatever he does next, wherever he goes, David Wagner will always be a Huddersfield Town legend.


[Image: image.jpg]

So who's in charge now? Well for this match it's going to be Mark Hudson, our former captain and now u23s coach.  He started his playing career with Fulham, before moving to Oldham on loan, Crystal Palace, Charlton Athletic and then on to Cardiff City, where he captained them to three unsuccessful Play Off campaigns. He did lead them to promotion eventually though in 2013 by winning the Championship. The first match of that campaign being our first match since winning promotion to the Championship, and he scored the only goal of the game, in injury time.
A couple of seasons later he would join us and skipper the Wagner Revolution side all the way to Wembley and that famous win over Reading, although he was on the bench that day, he still got to lift the trophy.
So which managers has he played for and what influences on his coaching has he picked up? Well he played for one of the names in the frame to succeed Wagner at Fulham, Chris Coleman. Iain Dowie, Peter Taylor and Neil Warnock at Palace. Phil Parkinson at Charlton. Dave Jones, Malky Mackay and super caretaker Ole Gunnar Solskjær at Cardiff. Plenty of differing styles for him to be influenced by there, but most importantly, Chris Powell. Oh and David Wagner.

A brief history of Manchester City: Founded in 1880 by members of St Mark's Church in Gorton, as a means to stop local gangs beating the crap out of each other. They had a few mergers and name changes in the next few years and built up a rivalry with another Manchester based club called Newton Heath. They went on to become Manchester United and in 1894 the team that had morphed into Ardwick AFC by now, renamed themselves as Manchester City.

Ardwick had been founder members of the Football League's 2nd division a couple of year's earlier and in 1899 the newly named City won it to gain promotion to the First Division. They won the FA Cup for the first time in 1904, beating Bolton Wanderers 1-0 at Crystal Palace.
In 1923 they moved from their Hyde Road ground to a new one in Moss Side, with a capacity of 80,000, Maine Road. They reached the 1926 Cup Final, got relegated in 1927, but got promoted straight back again.

The 1930s started as a good decade for City, reaching two Cup Finals, winning it in 1934 and then in 1937 they won the League title for the first time. Strangely though they were relegated the following season and won promotion back in the first season after the 2nd World War.

In 1956 they won the Cup again, beating Birmingham City 3-1, the game being remembered for goalkeeper Bert Trautmann playing on despite having broken his neck in a heavy challenge.


[Image: Britain-Soccer-Trautm_Horo-e1374246853865.jpg]
Broken neck? It's ok, I'll play on!


Back down again in the early 60s for a couple of seasons, but they came back under the management team of Joe Mercer and Malcolm Allison who guided them to promotion and then to their 2nd League title in 1967/68.This was turning out to be a golden era for City as they won the Cup again in 1969, the European Cup Winners Cup and the League Cup twice.

Not much on the honours board in the next couple of decades. They were founder members of the new Premier League in 1992. They moved from Maine Road to the city's Commonwealth Stadium in 2003, known now as the Etihad. The club were just treading water, not very financially sound, until in 2008 they were bought out by the Abu Dhabi United Group, which transformed them immediately into the millionaire moneybags club they now are.

They won the FA Cup in 2011, the League Cup in 2014, 2016 and last year when they beat Arsenal 3-0. And they won the Premier League in 2012, 2014 and of course last year, famously collecting the trophy after failing to beat us at home.

Head to Head

[Image: s-l225.jpg]

City lead in the overall head to head with 27 wins to Town's 22, with 30 draws.

One of those draws was a couple of seasons ago in the FA Cup when our brave boys earned a creditable 0-0 draw against high flying, big spending Manchester City. And we almost won it, with Philip Billing unluckily having a goal disallowed.
We would've won the replay too if the ref had blown for full time after 10 minutes. Ex City junior Harry Bunn gave the Terriers a deserved lead. But some pathetic hounding of the referee by City's under performing superstars pressured him into giving them every decision going and we ended up departing the competition.




We also lost to them in the FA Cup in 1987/88. It was one of 5 games we played against them that season. The first was a narrow City victory at Maine Road. Then we met in the Cup and almost got revenge. Duncan Shearer scored twice, only for City to get a very late equaliser to take it to a replay. That ended 0-0 and so we played what turned out to be our last ever 2nd replay before they were scrapped in favour of penalty shoot outs. We lost that though, but did eventually beat them when they returned once more to Leeds Road for the league match in April and got beat by Carl Madrick scoring the only goal of his 8 match Town career.

There have been other Town victories against City in recent history, they weren't always bankrolled by the mega rich. Though they now are one of football's biggest club's, in 1998/99 they were actually a division below us. They came straight up in their League 1 season, beating Gillingham on penalties in the Play Off Final and when we went to Maine Road in the next season under the management of ex Man Utd star Steve Bruce, we absolutely battered them and the 1-0 scoreline flattered them we were that much more better. Chris Beech scored the goal, a brilliant header from the edge of the area.
The season before, we helped relegate them by winning at Maine Road, with Rob Edwards scoring what is generally accepted as one of the finest goals in the club's history. Have a look at this.




In our two season stint in the First Division in the early 1970s we drew twice, lost once at theirs but beat them 1-0 at Leeds Road in April 1971 with a goal from Trevor Cherry. Earlier that season we drew at Maine Road 1-1 on Boxing Day with City's captain Tony Book sticking the ball in his own net for our goal.

Mixed fortunes in our modern era of Premier League football. Christopher Schindler gave us a deserved lead in the home match just before half time, only for it to go down as a Nicolas Otamendi own goal. Wound up by going behind, City came out for the 2nd half all guns blazing determined to cheat their way back in, and Raheem Sterling dived his way into the area to win a penalty, which was put away by Sergio Aguero. And then the cheating little twat Sterling scored a spawny winner late on to give City the points.
Just a point of order here, following the rumpus down at Chelsea involving Sterling. I know it's not ok to call him a "black c***", I'm not daft. But is it still ok to shout abuse at him for cheating? Or is he so precious now that that's off limits as well? Just asking for a friend!  Whistle

The away match I've touched on already, which was a creditable 0-0 draw, which set us up nicely for an even more creditable draw down at Stamford Bridge a few days later.

This season however, despite us scoring the goal of the game through Jon Gorenc-Stankovic, City managed 6, to beat us 6-1. Their scorers, that man Aguero got 3, Gabriel Jesus and David Silva one each and a Terence Kongolo own goal.

So what's happening at the Etihad Stadium?  Still managed by Pep Guardiola, the former manager of European giants Barcelona and Bayern Munich. As a player he was a defensive midfielder, considered amongst the best of his generation and a part of the European Cup winning team at Barcelona under the management of Johan Cruyff. He was capped 47 times for Spain.
After taking the Barcelona B team job, he then succeeded Frank Rijkaard as coach of the first team, going on to win the Champions League twice and La Liga three times. He finished at Barcelona and took a year off before taking on the job at Bayern Munich where he went on to win the Bundesliga three times. Then in 2016 he was tempted away to join Man City and last year won the Premier League.

Club Connections: Well there are two players in our squad who have both been at Man City, neither of them actually getting a game though. They are of course club captain, Tommy Smith and Australia international midfielder Aaron Mooy. Smith came to us in 2012 when the club who's Academy he joined at the age of 11, released him. Mooy came to England as a boy to join Bolton Wanderers' Academy before moving north to play for St Mirren in 2010. He stayed there for two seasons, the second of which was cut short by a back injury, and then at the end of the season he moved back home to Aus. Manchester City signed him from Melbourne City in 2016 and immediately loaned him out to us, since when he has become Terriers legend. Unfortunately, he'll still be out injured for this match but can't be far from a glorious relegation saving return.  Cool


[Image: Mooy_2625150.jpg?20110722133445]
Mooy at St Mirren, he did have hair!


Further back through the mists of time of course, there was Denis Law. His British record transfer fee from us to City in 1960 of £55,000 paid for a new set of floodlights at Leeds Road. He was only 20 years old then and four years earlier, he became our youngest ever first team player (at that time) at the age of 16.
He of course, went on to become one of world football's greatest ever players. He played for both of the Manchester clubs and famously came back to City after 11 years at United and scored the goal that relegated them in 1974. He is Scotland's record goalscorer and also holds the record for most goals scored in a season for United.
His career total of goals ended on 333, the first 19 of them were scored in the bright blue and white of Huddersfield Town.


[Image: 182652.jpg]


Another Town legend of more recent years, Mark Lillis played for both. A boyhood City fan, he came to us and made his professional debut under Mick Buxton in 1978 in midfield. He later became a centre back and then remarkably became a striker. Not just any old striker, but a bloody good one, bagging 56 goals in his time with us. He even had a go in goal when Andy Rankin got injured during a Cup match against Shrewsbury Town.
He signed for City in 1985 and despite spending just one season there, he managed to score a hat trick* at Wembley (* his 3rd goal was later given as an own goal). This was in the short lived Full Members Cup and despite his heroics, City lost the match 4-5 to Chelsea.


[Image: 81f10fe8afb2bc2587f0a4c192f3c1cf.jpg]


In the mid 90s, we had a big hearted, bad tempered centre back called Andy Morrison. He was your old style hard man and seemed to be suspended or injured for most of his time. I remember him almost scoring with a header from the half way line, but after two seasons he was sold to City, who were then in the 3rd division.
He's fondly remembered by their fans and was voted in a recent poll as their 3rd best ever captain. He of course, captained them to promotion from the 3rd division, via a famous Play Off victory over the mighty Gillingham.

Football returns to ER after the "wee winter break" and I wonder if Neil is tempted to give a few youngsters a "run out" v this level of opposition without weakening the team too much. No complacency required and hopefully no "shock result" as I think we have a decent chance of winning the Holy Grail again!
