    Came out of the away end and the police were herding people onto 'coaches for the station' so I jumped on.

    25 minutes later we were still there, it's a 15 minute walk :rolleyes:

    We eventually moved off into normal traffic with no escort and crept along for another twenty minutes on a hot bus.

    The lad across from me fell asleep, obviously drunk, and woke up sharp when we had to brake in the high street.

    There were endless sari shops, cheap gold jewellery and stalls selling yams, etc .... alost everyone was Asian origin.

    Our hero opened his eyes, squinted at the scene outside the bus and said,

    "Fuck-ing hell, how lang have I been a kip!"

    Some of these dives we end up going to following Sunderland is sad really. But then the away fans of said dump will turn up at the SoL and call it a shithole and claim they want to go home :rolleyes:

  7. I'd much rather live here in a quiet NE backwater than anywhere down south I've seen. Probably 100k cheaper as well :cool:

    I thought bits of Luton were alright, other side of the train station and around the weatherspoons.

    Wouldn’t wanna live there, but I guess that it’s close to London which is a massive bonus.

    Parts of it ARE alright and you can be in London in 25 minutes.

    Probably more than that. You won't find anything in Bristol, even in rundown areas, under about £140,000, other than 1 or 2 bed flats. If you want a 3 bed house, you're looking at over £200,000 for ex-council properties on estates that are, well, not great.

    Ended up getting off the first bus with the rest while stuck at the lights and walking it to the station.Train up to Bedford delayed so missed connecting train,only 2nd week of the season and I've got 2 claims in for refunds .carry on like this and I'll have enough money off claims to buy a season ticket.

    Similar speed to the Megabus we got back up from Victoria Station...then the driver seemed to discover 5th gear after Wakefield Services....and it was Lewis Hamilton
    stuff all the way after that....

    Never come face to face with trouble as an away fan, UNLESS the police were involved in helping. When we needed to leave the cordoned escort to Buses at Leeds as we were catching the train, they advertsised letting us out to All around. Heading for the tube at West Ham I was knocked out by a police horse's head (when I came around though it never occurred to me to take a swing at it), and an escort at Forest 'finished' when they reached their vehicles rather than the station, causing a huge ruccous that fortunately worked out largely in our favour.

    You're just going to have to stay in the south like the rest of us exiles while you are working. Dream of Costa del Seaburn all you like.;)
  19. Rail travel is for shit at present. I’m across to Liverpool and down to London with work a lot and must have had 15-20 refunds since January.

    we parked up just outside screwfix as we needed a new kitchen tap and it was only a 20 minute walk to the ground.
    chucked the tap in the boot and set off walking, a bus pulled up and the doors opened. the driver shouted 'i hope you beat them bastards, i'm a watford fan' doors shut and he drove away. quite bizzare and random. thought he was going to offer us a lift.
    @McMackem, came out of the ground yesterday & the bobbies wouldn't let us go left so we had to walk down then left and left again to end up about 20 yards from where the copper wouldn't let us go against all them lot coming out and no bobbies anywhere. absolute stupidity.
