Trying to get me bearings,   and I know somebody on here did it last time but from wealdstone fc,  is it the tube from ruislip to Wembley park ?   If so then what bars are we looking at around wembley park ?

I know it sounds like a bit of hand holding but not done the tube stuff for donkeys.

 

Will message you, but think we are parking at Wealdstone.

We are going to Wealdstone first. Last time our coach parked at Wembley, got back exactly same time. But no paying £10 to get into a pub.

I find it amazing clubs like Oxford who get poor home support and travel in small numbers still manage to pull people from all over out for a final. 

What do these southern types do every other saturday? There surely aren't that many coffee shops in Bicester Outlet Mall

I remember thinking that about Reading in 95. All my football watching life at that time, bar a couple of years, they'd been a 3rd or 4th division side with crowds between 3 & 7 thousand. Come Wembley, they outsold us.

We put a charity football match on at our ground on the same day - that’s madness

Got the impression that half of them were Chelsea fans in their day jobs.

They'll take more than us. It's just down the road for a start. Plus there's the novelty factor as I doubt they've played there very often. Plus I think they've probably more disposable income.

it is, I said as soon as the qualified, they'll outnumber us on the day. A bloke I work with, live in Thame, which is pretty near to Oxford. This Saturday, he reckons there are 30 or so of them going from the local boozer, and none of them ever go to "normal" league and cup games

After last year against Plymouth it won't worry me the slightest if Oxford gets a couple thousand more than us.

30,000 Wanderers fans will be 2x as loud as say 35,000 Oxford.

We get 20k week in week out, them 8,000. They will have a much larger amount of families coming out for the day than us.

Regardless of this it looks we are selling very well and still sold more than them as it stands, we're only a couple blocks away from last year's end line.

This will be their 4th visit in 8 years, which isn't bad really, considering they're usually just a bit shit.

 

Edit: They've lost the previous 3 visits :)

correct, I think only attendance nonces really give a fuck about if we're out numbered by a few thousand or so

Wembley has been our second home ground since 1923.

Not concerned in the slightest.

We just left our stuff on the coach last year when we parked at Wembley (non official coach) it wasn’t a problem.

Had saved a nice little stash of “refreshments” for on the way home & was so glad that we did, lot’s of folk had run out on the way down.

To me, the ability to take an entire day's stash of booze with you is the only positive about coach travel.

Train cans plus an offy close to the station going back is my preferred option.

I personally think it’s an amazing turn out.

 

 

Just now, L/H White said:

same, it's an expensive do, especially on ten days notice 

 Both correct. Families who take their kids to the match suddenly having to find a shitload of cash at short notice in the economic climate means a 25k turnout is very impressive.

For those doing Wealdstone, it's less than 10 mins walk to Ruislip statin and there's a pub en route if 10 mins is just too far.

Coach tickets say "NO ALCOHOL PERMITTED ON BOARD".
