    I demand that it's moved to the Wednesday. You ok for then Nick? I think it's because of an event at the Ricoh or a proposed one anyway.

    Fingers crossed. Let's be honest, during the past couple of the season four fans would be a majority.

    In a similar vein but more for the Oldies I refer you to the Easybeats 1966 offering "We're going to have fun in the City ".
    I feel there's a CCFC chant in their somewhere.

    The reason the game wasn't played today is because there are no corporate hospitality facilities available for the prawn sarnie brigade, nice to see the club put this line of business in front of the 10000 hardcore support!

    It really is a stupid decision to play it on the Tuesday night, not only do many season ticket holders who are shift workers miss out but so do the lads that follow England.

    I'm sure a couple of thousand extra people through the turnstiles on a bank holiday would outweigh the prawn sarnie brigade on a Tuesday night.

    Why are there no corporate facilities available? What's wrong with them?

    Another pathetic attempt at deflecting criticsm at the club from a franchise bellend.

    Lady at the ticket office confirmed this today. They must have been booked out for something. Presume this impacts on car parking etc.

    Surely if the club knew the game is on they would book the facilities they want in advance ?

    This.

    Remember this is a Club where the ticket office is in the bar room of the local rugby club.

    It was back in July that the game was moved, so I imagine the event was booked in before the fixtures were announced.

    Yes, another politically driven decision that affects fans ability to get tickets and ultimately limits club income.

    Nice try wasps fanboy. The club were told they had to move the fixture when it was announced by the FL as then already had an event booked.

    If it is to do with car parking simple solution is to drop the crazy parking rules on the local streets then there is no problem (sorry Italia)

    The whole point of this thread is now lost on me. I'm now only interested in what happens with Stu and his new girlfriend.

    Not crazy if you live in those streets and can't park in your own street due to an event at the Ricoh......

    Its a money making scam if it wasn't they would make parking at the ground free or a sensible price, it also goes for miles I believe near to the former Convoy has a parking ban, set up by people who don't attend or if they do can afford taxi's or get their drivers to drop them at the ground.

    This is is one of the very few things that made HR a better ground.

    And if you now go to HR most of those streets now have parking permits.
    I don't park at the Ricoh so not sure what the price is, but it is £5.00 average at most grounds.
