Coach travel is 19 and coaches depart at 4pm.


M5 on a bank holiday Friday; I'd be wanting to leave earlier than that

They like to arrive just in time to ensure that you only have time to go straight to the ground without having any fun.

If the M5 is anything like it has been on some Friday's this summer, the coach travellers might be listening to the game whilst sat at Michaelwood Services*

On sale at 5pm and I'd completed the booking by five past. Can't complain about that.

We've just sold a hundred in the time it took me to put Peppa Pig icing pictures on 12 cup cakes. Which was about 10 minutes.

I've ordered mine.

When tickets eventually do go on sale, the website works very well. I really like that I can choose my own seat standing location.

It's the delay in starting selling and delays in mailing that needs fixing

That's nice of you, but you'd better put the cakes in the fridge if they're going to last until the Bristol game. Ill take five.

I wouldn't bother. Weston would probably beat us.

Got my ticket. Didn't think I'd qualify as I thought it would be season ticket holders first but got it no problem.

Have they made a balls up on the site? Seen loads on Twitter saying they've bought tickets despite not having the correct criteria. Saw someone say they're on general sale by mistake.

I thought it was weird that I could get tickets tonight. What a cock up.

Even though I did meet the criteria, I thought that something was amiss when I could pick a seat without even having to log in first

I've just booked two tickets and I don't meet the criteria either. I was going to get mine through the Bournemouth Lions, but when I looked, it said only 80 seats left. I'm sure this can't be true?. Anyway, it looks like another complete balls-up by the ticket office.
