I have just booked ticket for the Nice and Espanyol games. How do i print the tickets off? I was sent a "purchase confirmation" email but i havent (as of yet) receieved an email with any tickets enclosed. Does it take a while for the ticket email to be processed? Have i done something wrong?

Ignore me - I'm being a plonker. They are attached as a pdf to the purchase confirmation email.

Pain that it's A4. According to the ticket office if you fold it, you only need to make sure that the barcode at the top of the page isn't folded all the rest doesn't matter. Makes you wonder whether you could just cut the top bit off...

Presumably this will make it easier to shift an un wanted ticket as you can just email it to someone

Have booked my Espanyol ticket online, but my ST seat in NR was 'unavailable'. Have booked the seat behind my ST seat, so apologies to Doovster if any of his crew can't get that ONE (IF THEY WANTED IT!)

I can see it now kicking off at a pre season friendly between our own fans - Seatgate!

When I booked there were no seats available in row H. Whether the system thinks its a league match and all seats are blocked as STs I don't know. It might be to protect the Espanyol bench! Btw the last capitals in my post were inadvertant, not sarcy. Sorry. See you there.

Just a quick question, but will it be development or 1st teamers for the Barnet friendly?

I appreciate it wont be anywhere near a sell out but allocated seating gives ST holders the freedom of sitting in their preferred spot (next to friends and family) and it doesn't impact on non ST's either.
Reserved my seat in new road for all three mate, no problem selecting the seat online but I got in quick lol so someone else may have booked it by now.

I've looked at their squad and what is interesting is we have more foreign born squad members than they do (3)

Just spoken to my daughter who speaks fluent Spanish. She has just translated an article from the Espanyol website that says Espanyol were keen to play the friendly but due to an internal issue at BFC, Brentford were unable to fufill their pre season friendly promises

Although they had a lot of defeats last season, I believe they also drew with giants Real Madrid and Barcelona, as well as beating Atletico Madrid 3-0!
Clearly they have awesome ability if you get them on a good day...

BFC are saying, the game has been cancelled
due to circumstances beyond the control of Brentford Football Club
So who is at fault here? What crazy conspiracy theory is behind this change?

EDIT: Devlin said something about issues with a match agent. Whatever one of those is

From the wording it didn't sound like something wrong from Espanyol's end, given it didn't implicate them at all. The match agent though....? Seems something way above my pay grade (of nothing...)

Maybe like how in business you have a 'finders fee' if someone sets up two interested parties for a takeover or so, maybe there was a fee arranged for the agent who put the game together who is now demanding an unreasonable payment? Best I can come up with.

Surely most of their squad will be Spanish. That's foreign enough isn't it?

There were no issues with Espanyol or ourselves. An agent contracted with Espanyol to pay them a fee to bring them over to England to play us. We in turn reached an agreement with the same agent to play the game but we were only paying a fraction of the fee. The agent clearly expected to make up the rest of the fee in TV rights etc. Unfortunately, the agent has been hospitalised and unable to meet his obligations and we were unable to agree a compromise with Espanyol, as they were expecting a much bigger sum than we were prepared to pay. It is much smoother when the clubs do business directly, but more and more of these type of matches are being arranged by agents. Anyway, I hope that clears the matter up.

Thanks for the information. A shame but clearly no fault on our part.
