  1. Buying Barcelona tickets

    Hi all, Hope I'm not posting this in the wrong place but I was hoping for some advice regarding buying tickets to see a Barcelona match in April. I'm looking at going to the Barcelona v Osasuna game in April, and as I've never been to a Barcelona game before I'm not sure about when is the right time to buy the ticket. I understand that the tickets are all owned by season ticket holders and tend to get released in the run up to the game. Currently, each part of the ground has a handful of tickets available, few of which are together (I'm going with a mate so need two seats together). So, do I take the tickets that are available now on the assumption that what's left will sell out soon, or do I wait and assume that more tickets will become available over the next few weeks? The whole point of the trip is to watch a game so I don't really want to miss the opportunity. A further issue is that the date and time of the game haven't been confirmed yet, so if I do buy tickets now and the game gets moved I'll have to rebook flights. All of this makes me think I should wait for more tickets, but I really don't want to miss the boat and not see the game. Anyone have any advice?

    Now within 3 points of the playoff spots, top work Steve Bruce!

    In terms of money spent, the single worst player we've ever had. Good riddance!

    So this isn't on normal TV at all? What a farce!
  5. Leicester City

    I would love to see them win it. It would be good for football to see a smaller side who haven't spent a fortune win it. In fact, it would be the first time that has happened for thirty odd years! Come on Leicester!
  6. Ratings and Reactions: Villa v Leicester

    Good point against the top side in the league but the gap to safety is one point bigger than it was a few hours ago!
  7. Lamine Sané

    Why are they letting their captain go out on loan?
  8. The Rémi Garde thread

    That would be a monumentally stupid decision. So exactly the sort that Randy would make?
  9. Relegation Thread Version...99?!

    That's all well and good, but 30 points has not been enough to stay up in any of the preceding 20 odd years of the premier league, why would you think it will be any different this year?
  10. Relegation Thread Version...99?!

    Remember that 2007/8 season when Derby were the worst team in Premier League history and went down on 11 points? After 13 games they had 6 points. We currently have 5.

    Josh Homme doesn't travel with EODM, he only does the albums. The rest of the band are safe apparently
  12. Ratings and Reactions: Villa v Man City

    That is a big point, but it is a much bigger performance. Full marks all round. We've got two weeks now for Remi to work with the boys, onwards and (hopefully) upwards!

  14. Highlights/Full match

    I'll probably miss most of the match as the boss thinks I should with her 'enjoying the glorious sunshine' rather than on my own 'in the dark, drunk and crying'. Can someone please post highlights and/or full match footage when available (preferably score free)? Thanks!

    A bit precious aren't we?. Only done this once before mate, hardly a repeat offender am I? Either way, sorry to step on your toes, nothing meant by it. UTV
  18. Best moment as a Villa fan

    Watching the 1996 league cup final in my dad's hospital room. It's one of the last things we did together as father and son before he passed away. I'll never forget it
  19. Highlights/Full match

    I'll be missing the match due to a house move :-( could someone please be kind enough to post a link to the full match video when it's available? Preferably without giving away the score. It would be much appreciated. UTV!!
  20. Pre-Match thread

    Opening games against newly promoted sides are always difficult, especially when they're at home. I think a combination of an energised Bournemouth side, a (bound to be) packed stadium full of raucous fans, and having too many new faces in the team will mean a Villa loss. We've made a lot of changes over the last few weeks and I can see it being a month or so before we start to gel and hit decent form.
  21. Stag do - Prague

    In just over two weeks it's my best mates stag do. I'm the best man and trying to organise the best weekend I can for him. I've never been to Prague before, or even that part of the world, so haven't the first clue where to find the best pubs/bars. I'm not finding websites like tripadvisor especially helpful as they tend to list the classier places, whereas we're looking for the rowdy, cheap, debaucherous pubs and bars that make for a great night out. We're staying smack-bang in the middle of new town so should be able to get virtually anywhere without a problem. Any suggestions for great pubs/bars? Any areas we should definitely go to or avoid?
  22. Stag do - Prague

    That sounds good. I'm looking at chillisauce now (.co.uk by the way, .com is literally a site for chilli sauce). I'm hoping for something along the lines of... Friday - airport pick up + bar crawl Saturday - white water rafting/carting + bar crawl Sunday - shooting + airport drop off Reckon I could get it all in for £100-150?

    Fair play, Arsenal were incredible from the first minute. We'll try again in 2030
  24. Pubs

    Anyone know any pubs in or around the Jewellery Quarter that are likely to show the match?
