I didn't dodge the question of whether I have ever had a season ticket. Although it is not relevant.

As to whether I have a credit card or which credit cards I have, not is it only not relevant but incredibility rude.

Tell me George when did you last have sex? Is it true you like watching gay pornography? What credit cards do you have?

I'm joking. If I were to ask those questions of you you'd rightly tell me to mind my own business.

So mind your own business.

I went and read them on the FA website about three days ago.

I wouldn't call you suspicious. Boorish, tedious, and similar affectives, certainly but it's not really suspicion on your part is it?

For once I agree. Your assessment of George is one with which I entirely agree.

Maybe a better wording would have been..... In what way is it' like a credit card'?
My Newport season ticket could be considered to be so, but then again so is my library card. When I handed over my library card to get a ticket for the Leicester game, the young lad looked very confused. :grin:

Ridiculous response that didn't answer the question, and some attempt at verbage. If it were an exam, like the majority of your responses, you would not score well and the comment from the examiner would be 'to take care to ensure you answer rhe question asked'.

I can see through it (as I have noticed from day one with you) - that it is all a ploy/a technique you use to avoid and confuse. Keep up at the back.

Yes it looks like a credit card.

Now unlike most of these posters I accept that you are not simply looking for a row. You know as well as I do that whether I ever had a season ticket was a silly question and I suspect had you thought about it you would not have asked it.

Moving on, and I would be interested if you choose to have a sensible debate. My view is simple. The ticketing problem for the Manchester City tie is immense. The old concerns re ticketing have been rehearsed enough and going over them again serves no purpose.

However I believe that Newport County having a glamour Cup tie where demand for tickets would outstrip supply was foreseeable. I believe that the planning should have taken place before hand. I believe that each day that passes without fans knowing how many tickets are available, what they will cost, and how they will be distributed adds to the criticism which can rightly be aimed at our directors. I have also written that which I would do now to make the best of the situation.

If you disagree with any or all of that I am interested in knowing why. That's all.

Stan last season we played Spurs with a ten thousand gate there where no real ticket issues so why should the man city game be any different

Stan as an old supporter who never intends to go to another game why do you have so much to say that upsets other fans or causes arguments?

Why were there issues over the 6,400 Middlesbrough gate seems to me to be a more relevant question. However I think that the fact that as of yet we are in limbo as to the capacity for the Spurs game re temporary stands.

The bit I disagree with goes back to your (in my view ludicrous) idea that ticketing arrangements could and should have been announced at 9am on Wednesday. There seems to be an implication that the club haven't planned anything beforehand. I'm suggesting that Wednesday was the correct time to discuss the details with Manchester City.

Not forgetting it could just be possible it is Man City who is actually delaying the process.

What I say seems to upset a few other fans. Mostly those who have difficulty reading or who like to make things up.

By the way I very much intend seeing more County games why did you make up that I intend not to.

Okay. But that is based on your belief that it is presumptuous to have contacted Manchester City as soon as the draw was made.

Now imagine County make the playoffs. You know the date of the final. Would you book to go on holiday the day before the final but before the semi final games, or would you say, we might not make the final but it make s sense to plan things on the assumption we will?

If you look at Jim's question re Spurs, we knew that there were temporary stands in place. Therefore it was possible to allocate tickets. Yes we should have arranged for temporary stands on a contingency basis. Everything should have been in place to go Wednesday morning.

Good planning is about working out what may happen, not what will, and being prepared.
