    25 with a groupsave.

    Not a bad deal though if it includes a driver

    Getting National Express to London Sunday morning and coming back midday Monday. Staying in a four star (or so it claims, but the reviews are good) hotel in Paddington. I love you all but the thought of trying to squeeze onto a train Sunday with loads of drunk Saints fans really didn't appeal so I'm taking advantage of having a day off on Monday. The coach may be slower but you're guaranteed a seat. Total cost, including breakfast Monday, just under 100.

    I couldn't believe the quote , I even double checked the price as all the others were 650+. My Boscombe mate reckons the drivers are free lance & they quote against each other, hence the low price. They use them for every away game & we're thinking of doing the same. Trains are way better, but the service is shiete

    If I were you I wouldn't come home in the train from Waterloo. No siree. Definitely wouldn't do that. Please pass it and on.

    This. I advise everyone not to come back via Waterloo on Sunday night.

    Similar for me.. getting an early train from High Wycombe to Marylebone then wandering down to Baker Street to meet some mates. Then Met Line back up to Wembley a couple of hours before KO.

    Monday has been booked off so if we win I could end up anywhere!

    National express from Southampton to Victoria, getting there at half 10 so all day to drink.

    20 for a guaranteed seat (and toilet).

    Hillingdon then train for Dad and I. Just wondering what time to get there though, maybe mid-day or so.

    Got the nipper so driving in. Think I am going to park up somewhere a few stops down the Piccadilly line and tube it to Alperton which is 1 miles form the ground. I reckon that will be far enough from the stadium that you can actually get on the platform rather than hand about for an hour like at the old Highbury Stadium. Other option might be to get onto one of the overgrounds from Clapham Jct

    been fortunate to get a couple of tickets, most likely traveling official travel from Eastleigh. Last time I did official travel I think Alan Wells was in goal, so its been a while... anyways, is official travel a dry coach? I'd assume so but just in case I could sneak in a cheeky 4 pack I thought I'd ask

    No alcohol on official coaches. Have you considered adding some whiskey to a bottle of coke, it's a bit less obvious than cracking open a can!

    that was the second option, first being to cough incredibly loud at point of can opening

    People saying the trains are going to be carnage need to realise that for the JPT it was a much earlier KO (1:30pm) and we did take an extra 10,000 fans, so yes I do expect the trains to be rammed but not as bad as what they were for the JPT (I hope).

    Surely rum goes better with coke, and tea for that matter? :-)

    Interesting, this was going to be mine and my sons route, but with a forced change at High Wycombe (where on the up side there is what seems like a decent pub right outside the station, Bootleggers). Hmmm, may have to rethink this now.

    Me and my old man are travelling with the extremely popular club coach travel (his choice and i aint driving!).
    Anyway , who knows where they drop us off? If its at the arena coach park , how far is it to walk to the nedrest pubs?

    PS last time i used the clubs coach was the semi against Watford at Villa Park. We all know how that ended!

    Sod it, I'm too tempted to make a big day of it. Braving the trains it is.

    For anybody doing the same from Southampton Central, I'd recommend buying (and collecting) tickets in advance.

    I can vouch for the Bootleggers - cracking little pub and fantastic selection of beers!
