Not got tickets yet, I phoned up the other day and the guy I spoke to said to phone back tomorrow to see if there would be walk-ups available. You's reckon this will be the case? Also which area of the stand is best for atmosphere? We'll be having a few drinks throughout the day so wanna sit somewhere where there's a bit noise/atmosphere. Would there be walk-ups for this area or best to get our tickets beforehand?
Also any decent pubs in/around the ground? Not sure what time we'll be getting the train from Newcastle but we'll probably plan it so we have time for a couple before the game. Is getting to the ground from the train station relatively hassle-free?
Cheers in advance, and here's hoping for a decent game!
Walk up tickets are normally only available for the Premier Concourse I think, the top tier bit above the North stand. No atmosphere there really, so get tickets in advance I'd say.
SW corner is best for atmosphere probably, you might be able to get a few tickets in somewhere near that area, West stand maybe?
