West Brom Away

Post by Shed on tour » Tue Feb 12, 2019 1:39 pm

Nice to see cheaper ticket prices for this game.
As I have used my 50% off voucher for coach travel to this game the total cost for match ticket and travel comes to £27.
If only it could be like this all the time.

Yes Tony a much more sensible cost, I am just looking at the travel cost to Preston & Bolton, both £37 quid before you start.

As you know usually would take the car but as the other 2 didn't want to go then it is far cheaper to use the coach on this occasion.
I must admit when I see some of the coach fares I think wow! SometimesI can get a flight for an England away game with a budget airline for not much more.

And it's not like a day trip out with PT Barnum's circus.

Well that's a first Shed, nobody has ever paid to go in the poorthorns before. they normally pay you. :lol: when you get there just smile at the natives but don't try and communicate, and whatever you do DONT FEED THEM. you should be ok.

Decided to go as haven't been to the Hawthorns for a few years and might be a while before I get the chance to go again. :wink: .
My 2 favourite memories of watching us beat West Brom are the 7-0 at Portman Road (Mariner's home debut) and of course the FA Cup semi-final at Highbury in 78.

I got connections in nearby Perry Barr / Aston, so accommodation wouldn't be an issue if inclined to make the trip. There once was - or still is - an area of town named Lambert's End in West Bromwich : which would be ironic if the manager decided there and then to walk away, but in your heart of hearts you realize that won't happen.

Anticipated larger crowd than the Hawthorns can handle.

The fear of crowds or Enochlophobia is known by different names such as Albionfansphobia, Ochlophobia and Demophobia.
Also since Tesco started charging 5p for there bags they cant afford shirt replicas, plus Aunty Auld emigrated to Wallsall.
so you Town fans will be on your own mate. turn the lights off when you leave, bit dangerous those candles.
