    Who Missed The Goal Last Night?

    Nope. Saw all the action, left on the final whistle, quick jog to the station and back in North West London by 23.40 as usual. Even had time for a pint at Brighton station. Still don't understand the early leavers.

      I missed it as I wasn't there ... but even if I had been I'd have missed it as now leave on 88 mins

      Only one I missed while there was Forest last year ... walking up to P&R and what was really bad was not actually knowing if it was us or them that had scored ... wouldn't have been a prob last night!

      Seat in the WSU. I never leave before the final whistle. Both last Friday and last night, I jogged straight onto the platform after the whistle without any queuing, onto an 8 carriage non stop train to Brighton. And I am no spring chicken!! What's the problem??
      What a relief that goal was! Dobbie to start.

      people in front of me missed it. I said to them as they were leaving 'you're gonna miss the goal'

      Similar here. Left on the final whistle, applauded the players off the pitch, gentle stroll to the University Car Park, and back in South West London by 23:05. Will never understand the early leavers.

      My son fell asleep and I had to literally drag him out the ground. Heard the roar (and yes it was a roar!), as we were walking up the ramp to get the bus outside the station.

      I am still livid with him and I haven't yet decided if he will be fed for the rest of the week.

      Sell him.

      I don't really get the 'but I have children' argument either. If I was taking kids to the game then they'd know what time we were going to get home and what the situation was, and if that wasn't OK then I wouldn't take them, I'd just take them to Saturday games until they were old enough. Why go to a game and not watch it all? Football is one of the few sports that can be decided at the very last second, so why on earth would you want to risk missing it? I'd rather not go to the game in the first place than go and leave on 85 minutes. It's a different story if we're 3-0 up or 3-0 down, but at 0-0? I just cant comprehend it. You wouldn't leave a cinema or a theatre 5 minutes before the end, so why would you leave a football match?

      So, in the vein of we can see you sneaking out...

      "Where were you when Dobbie scored? Where were you when Dobbie scored?"

      Anyway, I saw it and was back in Brighton at about 10:15-20(?) despite slight train delay - I used to drive to Villa park a bit when I lived in Birmingham and would be stuck in traffic outside the ground for longer than that.
