2hrs 7mins 40.
(finishing time optional).
1.43.15 then straight to match.
2 hours 47 seconds and went to the match n'all.
2:04:16, and sat in my seat as the whistle went for kick off
Yup, 2:29. Took it slow and steady and was in my seat by kick off
I did it in 2.16 and wasnt on the metro until 2.40pm!! how did you get there so quick? missed the game cos of it. got told off stewards there were no direct buses to sunderland so metro was only option - along with 50000 other people
We parked the car near to the hill near the home straight.. (in the housing estate) and got a nice get away. Tactical move, done the same the last 3 years even though we weren't playing last year on the day of the race iirc...
1hr 25 then two cheeky pints in the crown before heading to match.... Pissed out my head (cos I was dehydrated not cos I'm a beer fanny btw).
Saved me a fortune compared to normal match days.... I'd recommend it
1.56. Shower, Few bacon sarnies and entered the ground at 2.52. It helps living in Shields like.
After collecting my finishers pack and my bag from the baggage bus I got to Pelaw on the metro at around 1.55 and found there was a twenty minute wait for the next South Hylton train,got into the ground around 2.45.
Can we re-name this the PF hero thread.!
WHAT A LOAD OF CRAP....! I arrived at the metero at Pelaw at 14.20 hrs and arrived at the ground for 14.50.
I missed a train just as i got to the metro station. They run to Sunderland every 15 mins on a sunday and even more was put on on this Sunday.
What do you want a bloody medal. Get over your self man and just support the team without telling every one what you have done to achieve it....!
GNR wars, storm the Metro.
KILL! KILL! KILL!
1:53 and got into the ground at about 2:15. Surprised to find out there were no direct shuttle buses to Sunderland so jumped in a taxi thinking it wasn't far. £26 later and got out at the halfway house to walk the rest of the way because I was running out of beer money!
Taxi driver was a mag anarl!
Done it on a spacehopper in me mams slippers and balanced a charity bucket on me head the whole way.
Managed a couple in the Colliery and a balti pie in the concourse before the game. Piece of piss.
Is it wrong that I'm now planning to do this next year?
No mate its not and I respect anyone who does it. Just do it and get on with your life like most.
Why not tell people if like-minded people find it interesting? And there weren't extra metros to Sunderland due to the GNR. I did it in 1.58 got a bus to Newcastle then the metro. Got to sol at 2.45 just enough time to hoy a well earned pint back followed by a well earned 3 points. And yes I wanted, and received, a medal
Well done mate
