Hi

So the conversation in the Café Bar was about the practicalities of going to Ealing and getting home on a Friday night.

Virgin East Coast are saying there is likely to be industrial action that day/weekend. With coaches you're up all night.

So it looks like driving is the only option. Anyone up for chipping in for a self drive mini bus? Probably leave Leeds area at lunchtime. Private message me or Haxby if you are by Tuesday teatime please. Ta

Count me in - but with one condition, no surprise: Planet Rock on the radio!

Yeah - we can ask Darren for a shout out to us and play my fave guess the crowd number! He's bound to being a Rush fanatic.

Just remember that whoever drives the minibus assuming its a 16 seater will need D1 on their licence ie: either passed the test or passed before 1997 and got grandfather rights. Also when hiring don't tell them that you're all chipping in towards the cost because that's hire & reward.

Also travelling down you'll hit bank holiday traffic on the M1/M25/M40 so an early start is advisable.

Thanks for that Andy. Unfortunately the club are not providing travel, so we are looking at other ways of getting there for those of us who want to go. Marching On Together as it were!

If anybody wants to go down to support the team in this important game, please get in touch by 6 p.m. tomorrow. Would be good to get a good following down there, the players deserve it.

Anyone going should note that there is a £5 discount on tickets bought from the Ealing Website by Wednesday. Just bought my (over 60) ticket for a very reasonable £10 + £1-50 booking fee.

Got my ticket as well. I do hope there will be a lot of Carnegie fans there to cheer them on.

And for the not quite as old wise, they are £15 in advance. You can prebook parking too. The tykesmobile has its ticket.

What do you think the latest set off time would be to get there?
Driven to Wembley in 3hrs 30 but that was Saturday morning. Thinking bank holiday Friday could be a mare.

We are leaving at lunchtime, so we have plenty of time to get there. Like you say, Friday afternoon on the M1 can be a nightmare. I'd not risk it later than 2.30, then it might be a close call. Ealing a bit further than Wembley.
