Basically it's the Amex times two and a bit. No matter how decent the public transport laid on for what is effectively an out of town stadium, it's always going to struggle to copeBack to Portslade at about half ten I think. We were on a hired driveway in Harrow which was only about 10-15 mins walk from the stadium, ideal.
It took an age to get through the Harrow gridlock after the game though, must've taken about an hour just to get back to the M25. But thankfully it was a pretty clear run from there, for once the M25 wasn't being naughty.
What else do you expect though, when 81,000 people are all leaving at the same time on a Sunday evening. It is what it is, as someone once said.
Yep, haven't changed in 40 years. Most of them are utter tossers. I remember being on the receiving end as a rather small 16 year old in the 83 final. And they were giving loads of abuse to much younger kids and women as well. Last night hardly saw any and the ones at Wembley Central (thanks for the tip @Weststander) were relatively quiet. But saw a few idiots on the walk there who really shouldn't be out of sight of their carers when it's dark.Back home in North Wales at 12.15. Had to endure the arrogant Utd fans at the services which was nice. I don’t think I have come across such an obnoxious bunch of classless fans ever.
Think I can probably win this - live in Kilburn so despite a 15 minute wait to get in to Wembley Park it’s only 4 stops back. Small compensation for the planes, trains and automobiles it usually takes to get to the Amex for a Sunday fixtureThought I was going to win this. I live in north London and left as soon as the winning pen went in. Straight onto platform at Wembley Central. Home by 8.40.
The one positive from yesterday.
Bloody hell. You must've done an absolute BOMB there!Back home overlooking the theatre of trees at 10.20
Getting a coach for the first time, arriving at 1.30 was a bit much, but after trying to get to the Green Man, and being told it was already full while still only halfway up the bloody hill in the pissing rain, we retired to the Wembley concourse, found the Gin, craft beer and real ale bit, and kept ourselves occupied laughing by at Spurs for a couple of hours.
Yes, from our seats it was probably about 5 mins with little to no queues and about a 4 mins wait for the train.Did you go to the Wembley Stadium overground station?
That's the bloody place that after we'd done the sensible thing & gone to the entrance to Wembley Central Station, we were directed to go back up the road & turn right by the 'Royal' Chicken shop as the front of the station had been turned into 'Exit Only'!
