    Just go to Hove
    I'm Portslade. The issue is a) will be more problematic still getting to evening games & b) every other bugger going to Brighton will do the same leading to overcrowding, possibly on a massive scale.

    And you know when Brighton folk make enough noise they'll reinstate them and drop the main line West ones

      ABC legal campaign – final preparations now being made for application to Court

      ABC is a transport pressure group founded in Brighton in May 2016, in response to intolerably poor service from Southern Rail. We thought we had reached our last resort in September and launched a legal crowdfunder for a judicial review of the DfT’s handling of Southern Rail, its close subcontractor.

      Little did we know then how much worse things would get.

      Our lawyers spent months in correspondence with the DfT; receiving highly unsatisfactory responses and repeated, time-wasting extensions to our FOI requests. To this day, the details of the government’s contract with Southern Rail remain under lock and key; and there has never been a stronger or more urgent case for transparency than now.

      With vast amounts of material to prepare, our lawyers continued to work intensively on the case and we are now on the brink of applying to Court to take the judicial review forward. The details of our final grounds will hit the press by mid-January.

      Though we cannot yet share details of our final grounds, the case is sure to take on Chris Grayling’s refusal to act in the public interest, and the details of the unprecedented failure of public policy behind Southern Rail’s ‘management contract’. We are also extremely concerned about the lack of disabled access on Southern Rail, a problem that has run throughout this year of service breakdown and is set to become a lot worse with the chaotic changes to staffing now taking place.

      Our campaign took on the failure and mismanagement of Southern Rail before the industrial action even became an issue. With the industrial action on top of the collapsed service we have lived through all year, one marvels at the extent of Chris Grayling’s dereliction of duty as hundreds of thousands of people suffer and the entire economy of the South has been brought to a standstill.

      Being Worthing I'm quite enjoying this weeks timetable. No more dividing trains and swapping drivers at Haywards Heath, get back 6 mins earlier. Down side is 1 train an hour now but What's not to love. Agree re games but thankfully my work is pretty flexible that I can work round.
      900k people in Bromley & Croydon, almost double pop of Manchester. Bigger than Norwich & Ipswich. Fickle fans in terms of attendance, cup games increased attendance do not help.

      Morning 06:22 from Shoreham, changed at Heath where Miss Piggy normally crushes you when getting on, 07:06 Heath to Vic a 12 car and no fecking seats.

      Coming home all Coastway Wests cancelled, stood from the Heath to Brighton, seriously annoying

      I had a direct train to London Bridge in the morning every 15 mins or so up until recently. Now there is one at 6:04, and the next is at 7:24........all those in between now require at least one change, meaning they take longer and there are no seats. Timetable is steadily and stealthily being whittled away - have to wonder if I'll ever be properly restored when the dispute is over. The price of a weekly ticket is 123............and it's 50 for a day return.

      How was your trip by the way? Did you find a pub showing the game?
      Great thank you, loved it. Being first-timers in Berlin we stuck pretty much to the standard touristy bits, Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie, East Side Gallery and so on and so forth. The Gendarmenmarkt was a bit too overcrowded for me personally, but Mrs P loved it. I preferred the smaller one on Alexanderplatz. Didn't bother looking for a pub with the game in the end.
