We will be on the bus again after Bristol, but already know the leaving time will be later. Monday probably took the travel people by surprise.
Not that worried about missing all the fuss. My brother describes his feelings as "quiet satisfaction". We can quite understand the seeming Glenn Murray attitude of not going wild, and don't see the fact that he is not celebrating as ominous, as some seem to have done. I, too, would be letting the other nutjobs get on with it.
Boring that might sound, but I am happy as I am.

My Dad was waiting in the car to give me a lift - so had to disappear 10 minutes after full-time.
On the pitch at the end, until the players went back inside. Then WSL concourse for a beer, to hug friends, and one or two strangers, and meet the other members of my family (STH's in three different stands). Stayed until HT in the Derby Hudds game, then back to my folks' for a nice takeaway curry and a few more drinks. Follwed the train / town carnage on twitter through the evening, and enjoyed it from afar - a bit jealous not to be in the thick of it, but family and that
Stand or Fall
Had a shocker. WSU emptied quite quickly during the Huddersfield game and so for some, possibly beer-related reason, decided I wasn't too bothered about the result as we were up anyway. Caught a virtually empty train into town, to be walking down North Road around the time the Hudds match ended. Tried a couple of pubs which bar a few Albion shirts were pretty much deserted and low key, so went for something to eat - also very low key. Walked home via North Street/Western Road, chatting about how disappointing it was that it was so quiet everywhere! Got in, quick look on Twitter and absolute mental SCENES. Players on people's shoulders, dancing in the streets, crowd surfing on the train... all from about 10 minutes earlier. I don't think I'll ever understand quite how we managed to spend about 2 hours in town and miss absolutely everything
