    Virgin Trains Discount

    Just tried to book tickets for Ipswich in January (ie well in advance) and it doesn't come under the promotion! Now having tried many matches before and only had the offer once to Crewe! Is this offer a myth? And I don't want the football special either for what it's worth....Big missed opportunity I suspect for Virgin!

    The Conservatives are strong against the weak and weak against the strong. That's not leadership

    We had trouble booking the tickets for fulham, have to go really early and return just over a hour after the game.

    Its clear they are not putting on the discount for the better times as they want people to pay full price. Proud sponsors of PNE my arse.

    Know plenty who have saved a few quid using the discount so any help in funding away travel is always appreciated IMHO.
    There are basically two types of people. People who accomplish things, and people who claim to have accomplished things. The first group is less crowded.

    Agreed.

    Not sure how many other companies that sponsor football clubs offer any sort of deal for its supporters.
