    Flights are expensive, Monday isn't a Bank Holiday so lose work time and I'm playing golf Sunday morning. I spent 400quid for the final last time, this time I'll spend 12 and be mortal watching on TV in the pub

    We were muted against Pompey as we’d all caned it the night before. We’ll be up for it tomorrow n Sunday!

    We really aren’t as big a club as we think we are, and there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s probably a good thing we’re reminded of that every now and then.

    We’ll probably still sell-out mind, but there’s no getting over the attendance for the semi-final was underwhelming.

    Sounds like it's a good job we didn't get to the FA Cup final as every team who does plays there twice in a few weeks, and God help us if we ever qualify for Europe again ! FTM

    My sock drawer is in need of a tidy, and I booked it in my iPhone calendar for 1.30pm on 26 May 2019 back in February when we had Blackpool, Accrington & Gillingham at home in a week and looked odds-on to piss this league. As I'm a technophobe and unable to delete it from my phone, I must undertake that task at the pre-planned date and time.

    Is that ok love?

    A lot of people seem unable to consider that some mightn't be able to stick down £100+ on attending a football game at 10 days' notice

    (I'm going FWIW)

    We are. Playoff final or not this is a third tier game 230 miles away live on the telly 2 months after people shelled out for a Wembley trip and after the team’s automatic promotion campaign finished on a downer. Selling that out, or anywhere near, is huge.

    Charlton ended with a late surge and even their most half-arsed fan can roll out of bed 10 o’clock that morming and have a wander over. A lot of them won’t even have to pay for travel.
    And there’s no getting over the attendance on Boxing Day was nothing short of amazing.

  16. I went to an ice hockey match in Moscow where the away team, from Ukraine, only had 4 supporters. The lads I was with reckoned they would be students living in Moscow but originally from Ukraine. It was quite surreal but they had little flurries of chanting which was quite amusing.

    I can't get a direct flight to Heathrow from here so the cheapest is about £350 with a stop. I will lose gigs on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the cost of around £550, cos the £350 flight is Saturday morning at 12.40am. That'll also mean two nights stay in a London hotel and taxis to and from airport to hotels and Wembley. Add ticket prices, drinks, meals etc to that and we're probably looking at the thin edge of £1500 for a day out... less than a month before I get married. But aye, I'm making excuses, @Agent Zigzag :oops::oops:

    I thought you were in Benidorm. Flights are costing between 30 and 50 euros and there's a boat load of times and airports to choose from. If I've mistaken you for Someone else ignore this.
