Re: Paying For A Hotel in ROI

I imagine it’s just that they don’t accept credit card payments over the phone. Inconceivable that you can’t pay by debit or credit card when you arrive.

Re: Another tier on the Bob Lord ?

The capacity of the old Brunshaw Road Stand was 9,500, it’s now around 3,000. The initial plan was for an 8,000 capacity stand there.

Re: Another tier on the Bob Lord ?

If I was to expand the Bob Lord myself I wouldn’t be putting a second tier on top. Much better to extend the existing rake out the back of the stand as now is. The steepness of the stand would mean even at the back you would be still quite close to the pitch (assuming another 15 rows or so). The maj...

On the 2nd half display we didn't really deserve to win. A point is still pretty reasonable though. As said above we totally lost the midfield. Also the forwards lost the ability to hold up the ball.
