1 month to go, now where is that zipStick !

Q: Is there any price advantage in booking rail tickets in advance? I'm guessing there is but if not then no point in committing myself to specific trains this early in advance.

Danny,
I'd have a look. Depends on demand. I'm paying £138.10 First Class Advance Single from Sheffield to Bournemouth on the Friday (I like the legroom) and £77.50 for First Class Advance Single Bournemouth to Sheffield on the Saturday. Like you say, you have to get that exact train, if you try and use them on another train they'll make you pay for a new ticket. But may be worth it, First Class flexible off-peak ticket on same trains would have been £289.60.

Thanks for the advice. Wow, those train tickets are hugely expensive. My flights cost a pittance in comparison!

Thanks for the info Ian, wow, that is expensive.

Danny, an alternative might be to use the National Express coach service from the airport to Bournemouth? I know that National Express have a route to Bournemouth train station.

Also, for those of you travelling to Bournemouth train station, please give me a ring when you arrive if you want a lift to the hotel.

Nice one for the update Logos. I like the train however if the bus if significantly cheaper I'll get the bus. Either way, I'll end up there on Friday afternoon

Less than 30 days to the UKC , I'm getting butterflies here.Anticipation that I haven't played KO2 in 10 years or so.

Hi all,
can we have a reminder about the rules, are they decided already? I remember we all stick with the default player line up (although we can bring on one or both of the default subs during the game), we can all change as many times as we want during a game between any of the eight tactics (424 433 442 532 blitz falcon balanced lockout), and we both play on International level. Can each player choose whether to use Penalty Box Dribble? Then there's the sliding tackles if I remember rightly; the first that that stops your player in control sliding when you press fire after your opponent touched the ball last; and the second that stops your players not in control from doing sliding tackles of their own accord. And anything else I've missed!

You remember correctly :)
As for PBD/slides you can choose what you want there.

I'd like to drag up an oldie from a post in 2005

"These statistics don't lie.This is the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Lord. Robert 'almost a great player but a little lame' Swift has come last in 1 tournament! Last I tell you.Imagine the ignominy ! :) 'Super Runty' Danny has never come last in any tournament.

Therefore according to these statistics: Danny is better than Robert => Robert is runty!"

I look forward to meeting and beating Robert Swift in sunny Bournemouth

Train booked, rant about Trainline.com below.




----
I've made progress, I think.

I've booked a train ticket to Bournemouth. First, let me say that http://www.thetrainline.com is a shambles. I selected a specific seat and once I completed my purchase I was told it's a free for all.WTF #1

I then selected an international visa card in the payment menu however I was forced to enter a UK postal code! WTF ! So I entered the postal code for 10 Downing St and it accepted this. WTF #2

Finally my ticket is a ANYTIME DAY SINGLE ticket however my ticket says a specific time. WTF #3 ?

So next I will book my return train journey, wish me luck.Once this is done I will hopefully have time to practice some KO2.
