Anyone looking to buy the packs including the Australian tour, keep in mind the second game is 10:45 am on a Wednesday.

I was, until i saw that the ****** are charging 45 for 5 games which are essentially like watching on some shitty you tube channel. Fuck that. I paid 20 last summer for the 4, and had a refund of 5 when the one was cancelled.

Hope that answers your question Sid.

Yes, but this year the coverage has to come all the way from Australia, last year's fixtures were more local.

Last season I paid 35 for five friendlies, plus Villa TV for a year, so it's 10 more this season.
The 20 package was for just the friendlies, plus 2 months of VillaTV.

I've no idea of the costs involved, but there will definitely be increases in putting on this sort of thing, paying everyone, and also doing it in another country. Every supplier at work is putting their prices up and we are putting our prices up too. Every potential employee we interview wants more money and existing employees want rises to counter inflation. All that results in prices for everything going up I'm afraid.

Jack Woodward's salary needs to catch-up with inflation.

It's not too bad for the season but it's a pain in the arse that PL rules dictate that they can't show PL2 games live if they clash with another PL game.  I couldn't give a flying one about Bournemouth v West Ham and I doubt many of the people watching it would care about our reserves playing Wolves or whoever, so why is it an issue?

1,300 tickets to be made available to Villa fans for the Rennes game
Doesn't feel like many. Do you know when they're on sale ?

Edit. Please ignore just seen on the Villa app.

Is it any wonder that some turn to illegal streams and dodgy firesticks?

Does seem a bit skimpy seeing as we took 954 to Leipzig for the pre-season friendly there.

I went to Leipzig and have now booked to go to Rennes, hopefully I will get a ticket, if not I will be sitting with the Rennes supporters!

I was interested until I saw the price, which is a bit steep when converted to NZ dollars. Given I am flying to Brisbane for the Leeds game I don't think I will pay another $100 NZ on games which are on at a very inconvenient time for me. Only game that would be at a reasonable time for me is the game in Brisbane!!!

For those off to France it looks like if you're not fully vaccinated you will need a test and/or recovery certificate. Bit unclear?

I have had two vaccinations and refused my booster dose so basically classed as 'unwanted'

Why would you refuse a booster having had two jabs?
