Funny that I came across this story this morning, whilst at the Oxford match with one of my bheys he asked where the program sellers were, I hadn't thought about it before but I haven't seen one since before Covid. Used to have to buy one for the bhey every single game, he has boxes of them in my loft, all through the Luggy days up until after when Brent spoilt our club. Must have cost me thousands. I think clubs have gone to digital content but I can't see anybody selling an online version in twenty years time.

They're there, usually on the corner outside the Devonport and Lyndy where the kids play football and further on after you get frisked and where the first steps are. Only bought one for a couple of games this season, used to be a regular and have thousands here somewhere.

Walked up through Barn Park and up the steps didn't see any. From what the article says it's Prem and CCC clubs are going virtual.

I ended up with boxes of them also, quite good to read them on the train back to Newton post match, I always thought the Argo programmes were pretty good.

They are still selling them corner of Demport/Lyndy and Mayflower/Life Centre but I would imagine since smart phones there is less requirement for half time reading material or team line ups. Other than the FA cup games I haven't bought on in years. I do have the Stourbridge one lying about somewhere.

It just shows how the internet has changed football news content. Like I said before I would always buy a program for the bhey and before that for myself, Rub of the green was must have reading at a certain time as well. Back in the day news was gleaned from Sunday Independent to read match reports then Western morning news on Monday morning, WMN was the go to place for Argyle news generally where as now it's this place, PAFC itself and the biggest improvement being the sky video highlights viewed on the PC. It's changed a hell of a lot in the last twenty years.

Same with anything really. How many people under 50 still buy newspapers any more?

Pointless really paying out to read 24hr-old news, when there is instantaneous news available everywhere for free.

That's if you can get any signal in the ground.

Not sure if it's bad signal or ten thousand people on their phones at once that's the problem? When I left the game last week I tried checking the other scores and it took ages to load, looked about and every other person was doing the same thing.
