I'd suggest that the requirement to print, in the current digital age, is the stone-age way of doing things...


Mim must be fuming at this misuse of her name.

Anyway

I don't disagree with you but I much prefer to print things out. I'm all for the environment but if I'd paid for something I'd rather have it in my mitts.

For the Nations league in Portugal this year they had digital tickets on the phone. You had the option of a hard copy ticket for an extra 10 euros but I went with the ticket on my phone.

It went smoothly for me but several ahead of me in the queues had loads of problems.

Same as at airports. I always print my boarding pass. Don't risk it on my phone.


When your battery dies on the phone you’re knackered.

A quick mention of our on-line ticketing system. As suggested I turned up with the ticket on my phone. When I got to the turnstile there was no way of scanning it so a quick glance and "in you go". Deadly printed his out and at least it was taken off him to count/scan at a later date. As I had my phone scanned at Hitchin and we are using the same system as them I expected the same. Will we have the facility to scan e-tickets at the gate in the near future? It needs to be up and running before we get Liverpool at home in the FA Cup. (Tim's choice)

We do indeed have a scanning device which was used towards the end of last season. Andrew (who kindly agreed to man a turnstile) has not had the intensive training session about how to use the scanner that Nick Symons, Mark Randall and I have had - hence the fact that he was checking rather than scanning.

Changing the subject now, Dave Hooper who sold programmes last night isn't around on Saturday for the Watford match - is there someone who could help out from say 2.15 through to k.o. ??

No - have found in the past that it is not worth doing at friendlies.
