    Aye, and if they do you can't get your money back should you not be able to make the new time/day. Scandalous. Possibly illegal too.

    off topic, but I noticed that the front row of seating behind the Lower Gwladys St goal last night looked to have been taken out of commission. Hadn't noticed that before. Has it been like that all season? Shame for the youngsters who typically prefer being so close to the action.

    Have just played the Brazil-Hungary game again. Apart from the skill on display it just struck me as to how short changed we are these days in terms of the actual length of time the ball is in play.
