    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.

    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.
    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.

    Watching the scores go through on Sky Sports,and saw the score on the right flick to 1 -0 Brighton before the scorer came up below.

    Dobbie ! Bloody Dobbie !!

    I had 0-0,1-0,Barnes.

    Hellfire.I could have used £25 to tip my butler.
    All opinions expressed in this post are my own,and are therefore correct.

    A guy in the same row as me shouts out "fire drill" on 85 minutes!

    Must have been 1/3 of the East Stand too!
    We leave our seat in the East Stand early every game, but then watch from the disabled section, so didn't miss the goal.

    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.
    Quite, we were home in Bexhill at 10:45 last night and 10:50 last Friday night, the Lewes trains/platform staff organisation does seem to have improved recently. Getting home just over an hour after the final whistle is more than acceptable for me.

    Who Missed The Goal Last Night?

    I really don't care when I get home. I go to see a football match so watch it all.
    I'm looking forward to the Bolton game to ask the guy who sits in front of me if he enjoyed Dobbie's goal (he left at 88 mins).

    Last night was a good experience transport wise. The lad and I, waited (east lower) until the final whistle, jogged to car in Bennett's Field, arrived home, 70 miles away, at 11.03*


    *to very disapproving looks from my wife, and an interrogation over how it was 'possible to have driven back that quick...'
    The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.

    Not me.

    But the blinker brothers in front have maintained their unblemished record of missing EVERY goal scored at the Amex after 80mins.

    From Doncaster through to last night.

    Bread & water should suffice.

    You'd best pop to the local for a quick pint next time.

    Ha. I did actually consider pulling over, just round the corner and waiting for a few minutes, but I think my lad would have dropped me in it!
