I feel like I've taken part in a farce comedy today, you know the kind where no-one else can really understand how frustrating it has been apart from you?

I missed the 11 minute Notts-Crewe-Carlisle change by 60 seconds due to people taking too long to get off train, actually watched the Carlisle train leave the platform even, but fair enough.

I was patient.

I was patient when the Carlisle train took 10 minutes to find a platform meaning I missed a beer with lads in town. Was also patient when the stewards at stadium played a practical joke pretending someone had stolen my flag meaning I lost another 10 mins "getting it back"

Delayed 15 mins outside Crewe waiting for a platform, watching my connecting train to Notts go past us was one of those moments when you know its not gonna be a good day.

So I got to Crewe knowing I'd missed my connection, and went to the nearest Upper Crust. Which was manned by a young lad with autism. That's okay, all credit to the guy. But when he leaves your toastie cooking in the oven while he explains how oil in a train engine works, so your toastie burns, its not good.

Not good especially when he realises he's let it burn, takes it out the toaster and spills molten hot cheese all over his hand and begins screaming and jumping around in the booth in agonising pain.

Then washes his hand in cold water as you watch, and drenched the toastie in water.

Then you go to the station bar, wait while someone who stood behind you gets served first, then get served a plastic pint of San Miguel at £6.39 (?!) and told the pub shuts in 10 mins.

You drink up very quickly and leave. Left the house at 7.50 this morning, home past midnight.

Patience.

Too much time on your hands

Pub landlady wasn’t happy with 505s flag although I think it was their main boozer😀

 

Seddon won't be getting a job at UN anytime soon with those negotiating skills!

Had a similar experience when going to Stoke in 1995 so you have my every sympathy.

In short, left Bolton in the afternoon for an evening kick off to go to Stockport where Marple was going to pick me up and drive down to Stoke, the train was also going to Stoke anyway.  Train was held up due to a break down, stuck on it for 4 hours going nowhere. 4 other Bolton fans on the train so sat with them.  Finally got to Stoke and the 5 of us got a police escort to the ground. Got to the ground 5 minutes after kick off.  
 

We drew 1-1 which gave the title to Middlesboro.


Got a lift back to Stockport to get a train to Bolton, Stockport had road closures so was re-routed which meant I missed the train. Had to wait an hour for the next one and finally got home early hours.

 

One of the worst days I’ve had following Bolton.
