These are the basic details - https://www.efl.com/iFollow/
Live games are only streamed live if you're overseas but TDA has issued an open invitation to all BMB users to have get togethers in his chateau to watch games live and partake of his cellar (it's a wine cellar, not like the Slumdog dungeon).
Subscribers in this country get the full 90 minutes of every game (usually the day after) and an extended highlights package. There are also highlights of every U18 & 23 game and the women's team. Also frequent interviews and match previews.

I think the basic £45 package is essentially the same as the previous Cardiff City Player offering, but at a slightly increased price. I wait with some trepidation the live match day video links. As with the old Player system, it seems possible to log on to the website of any participating club and view the content. I am told that some clubs are streaming their pre-season games, unlike City, so if I can actually find one to watch, I will report further.

So far as the open invite to chez-TDA, I have to inform you that the wine stocks have been largely depleted by a giant orange monkey-ape who has apparently tunneled his way in, having taken a wrong turning some 18 months ago at Severn Tunnel Junction........"that bloody family" is the only understandable phrase he has uttered since his arrival.......

Bodmin & Tavistock play in the South West Peninsula League, which is level 10/11 of the National League system, which is quite a long way down the pyramid. The following games should provide a more realistic test for City. Neverheless, for the purposes of building up fitness and spreading goodwill, the first three pre-season friendlies are doing the job.

Bodmin tonight, with the possibility of Pilkington making another appearance.

Wonder what sort of line up we will see at Bodmin?  I seem to remember that this was pencilled in as an u-23 game, but even so, the fringe players might get more time.

The U23's are playing St. Austell on Thursday and Bideford on Saturday with the Plymouth first team game on Friday.

Ah, thanks!

B*ggered if I know. My knowledge of monkey-ape is limited to "Severn Tunnel Junction" and "that bloody family". Perhaps Arkay can help?

He's definitely referring to the Slumdog / Slimfrog dynasty. Without question.

They're a depraved bunch who make The Fritzl's and The West's look like The Waltons.

I've already said too much, they'll be chaining me up next...

In other news, City are drawing 1 - 1 at Bodmin. Cracking goal from Manhattan and another soft penalty conceded. Who can blame the ref for wanting to give the home fans something to cheer about.

I think it might be libel rather than slander, but then, I'm just stirring the pot.

PS City 3 - 1 to the good 5 mins into second half......

Sounds like a cracker from Damour to start things off.
Hope Manhattan doesn't want a transfer

But if he said it, even though it was mostly in indecipherable chimp, it's still slander.
