    In the great scheme of things I don't think a few less pies and pints of Harvey's will break the bank compared to the team getting to the Prem
    Let alone fixture pile up, I don't see any alternatives to this date
    I surrender all control
    To the desire that consumes me whole
    Leads me by the hand to infinity
    Lies in wait at the heart of me - the Albion of course !

      Response from Paul Barber, who is in Coventry, on the date selection:


      We are obviously aware this is a strike day. There are many such days right now! However, we cannot allow them to disrupt our season from a footballing point of view by creating a pile up of games later on.

      As a general rule, postponed league matches must be played within one month of the original fixture date. Our choice was therefore Tuesday 24 or Wednesday 25. Both are strike days.

      We have every sympathy with supporters getting to matches on strike days, and unlike most clubs we lay on additional transport services to help, but we must still play our matches within a reasonable timeframe.

      I would add that, aside from the EFL's guidance and expectation on when postponed games should be played, the decision is taken between myself, Chris and our opposition, in conjunction with the EFL.

      In reality, there are very few options in the second half of the season due to the number of games we must play, the FA Cup, scheduled replay dates, and our own preferences from a footballing perspective.

      In this regard, the Tuesday was preferable to Chris than the Wednesday so, on this basis and given that strikes are due for both days on which we had an option, we went with the manager's choice - which Cardiff agreed to.

      The club said after the postponement that refunds would be available for match tickets where people couldnt make the rescheduled date.
      Season tickets though are for 23 matches whenever they take place
      As a goodwill gesture the club should extend the refund option to season ticket holders who cannot attend the re-arranged fixture, bearing in mind many of them would have travelled long distances for the original fixture before being told it had been called off due to fog. This is different to a fixture change due to TV coverage which is publicised well on advance. I am writing to the club to express my dissatisfaction and to request a refund.

      Makes perfect sense to me. I had a feeling there was a timescale within which the league preferred games to be played

      Or to put it in non Mr Barber terms:-

      The gaffer wanted Tuesday, so we're playing Tuesday.

      As far as i know they never have done historically with postponements due to weather conditions so all the best with that.

      What are you unsatisfied with, the fact there was fog and it had to be called off? No shit, we were all pissed off.

      Why would you be asking for a refund on your ticket, surely you should be after a gesture to cover your original travel expense?

      Fingers crossed Tony doesn't ask for a refund of his investment.

      Or perhaps they should pay for taxis so every STH can attend...........
