Blackpool Programme FAIL

Did anyone else notice that the fixture list was omitted from Southampton and Blackpool match day programmes? Me, my old man and one of my mates were going to use the fixture list within the programme to plan / pick the upcoming matches we’d like to attend (pretty much all home games and maybe a few away fixtures).  I was amazed when the programme didn’t include the fixture list. Surely that’s a massive error? Never before had I seen a programme without a fixture list.

So, when the official QPR website asked for feedback on the ‘new’ matchday programme I thought I’d ask the question…

To which Ian Taylor, the Press & PR Manager at QPR replied:

“It was left out of the Saints match due to the reduced page pagination and it was a design fault that ensured it didn’t make it in to the Blackpool programme, which I am bloody peeved about! Thanks again for the feedback Dan and please feel free to send in your entry for either MY DREAM TEAM or FAN OF THE WEEK.

So there we have it – looks like some poor designer somewhere has had their knuckles well and truly whacked. At least we now know it was an error rather than some of the other ridiculous consipracy theories I heard on Saturday.  Nice of Ian to reply.
