Preston programme just arrived - very striking cover photo and interesting interviews with Marcus Forss and a couple of the B team. Preston content is good too.
Stopped buying them now.
Purchased all of last seasons, as it was our last at GP, and just purchased the first one at LR. That’s me done!
I will buy the Remembrance Day one though.
Ps The postage costs take the P and the costs v value for money takes it beyond it’s worth.
Plus its nice to have them pristeen not folded up and pages stuck together with Strongbow lol
Hopefully the club gains a little from these on-line purchases and personally I enjoy reading them (in the absence of the 'real thing') however the Swansea programme was only posted out on the day of the game (3rd November) and although 1st class did not arrive until today. It doesn't include any updates following Saturday's match at Luton, so I'm not very impressed. Having said that, I have ordered the MIddlesbrough issue. Maybe this will arrive before kick-off?
I find the Saturday match progs arrive on time, but for Tues games I tend to receive them on Weds - I understand it's down to when Curtis actually print them .... so for Tues games they only have the Monday to print & post, (so no time for the Club to submit & insert details re the Sat game), & the majority get posted on the actual Tuedsday. Maybe if our midweek homes were on a Weds instead, Curtis would have more time to print & post & we'd get them in time - just a thoughtThey’re arriving later and later. I’m not sure I’ll continue bothering TBH. Having the programme to flick through before the game in the summer was a tiny bit of normality but it becomes pointless if they’re arriving two days after the game
What you’d give to get home on a Saturday night to take a Strongbow soaked, creased programme out of your back pocket though!
I‘ll probably still continue buying them throughout the season. I rarely read all that much but I get a brief bit of excitement when they drop on the doormat!
Idris Hopkins, from season 1938/1939. (The year Brentford wore the Brentford and Chiswick coat of arms on the player shirts and club blazers)
It was a picture taken v Portsmouth. (22/2/1939)
I'd stopped buying them years ago.Arrived this morning, not good customer service, if it wasn’t that Grandsons like to read and save them I would stop buying them
Only one I bought since not being allowed to watch matches in the flesh, as it were, was the last one at GP.
Does anyone know whether those of us lucky enough to be in the 2k crowds at LR, will be able to buy them there, rather than mail order?
It could well be the post office. Not sure if it's Christmas temps but one knocked "I have a delivery for you ", "No you don't", "Huh ?" Pointed to the plaque by the door, "Wrong house, wrong number, wrong street. " "Oh" and off he went.My last one (Boro) never turned up at all , I emailed them and they suggested I contact the post office (really!!!) went back saying I had and it finally arrived last week . Not sure I’ll bother again was hoping to buy programme tomorrow at the game As I’m lucky to be there but doesn’t sound like I can .
