Never going to west Brom again stewarding was dreadful and taking a 6 year old with me who got very scared, then being led out and hiving to walk about 3 miles through a dodgy estate rather than the 500 yards back to the car in this day an age is pathetic.

Shit club, Shit fans, Shit town anc CBomb for a manager no thanks

I listened to 606 in the car for the first time in years the other day. West Brom fans absolutely hating on pulis. Destroying to soul of the club was the general theme. Was interesting listening to the BBC pundit (Jason someone) Sticking up for his mate pulis "great man, great manager" and getting called out for it. Was quite amusing.

Is a proper pain in the arse that walk, but I always look forward to the hawthorns. Could be because Iím usually home in just over an hour :)

Anyway, donít take a flag, the stewards at the turnstiles will take it off you, donít look over to the stand on the right hand side, the stewards will tell you off, donít also look to the right as the pikey woman with her dirty kids will be flicking vís at you all game and donít forget to sing songs about Tonyís house!

Loads of decent pubs in centre of Birmingham then 6 mins on train from Snowhill to Hawthorns.
We usually leave boozer near Snowhill just before 230pm.
Last season they let us away fans straight onto train at The Hawthorns after the match so we were back in Birmingham at 515pm.
Would never go back to any pub near stadium.

I was near the edge of the stand last year, and had great delight goading one of their fans who would stand up, give it some for about 10 seconds and then sit back down, to the point where our little corner started counting down from 10 when he stood up!

There was also the complete nutcase sat near him in a selection of attire from Millwall, Arsenal and West Brom, who looked like he hadn't washed in about a month!

Won last season and in the cup with Pulis.

Also won there in the admin season with an n'diaye goal and also won there a couple of years prior due to a late goal from grabban I believe.

As you come out of the away end the route to the right is blocked off and you have to turn left down an alley to the main road. As has been said, there's parking on that side of the ground or alternatively it's a bit of a walk. No hassle really though once you are expecting it.

Yes. If you get there early there is free street parking about 100 yards from the end of the alley. There's also a car park nearby.

Personally I prefer to park by the M5 junction and walk the 15 minutes or so back there.

You don't have to wait too long before they open that ridiculous gate. Last year the home areas of the ground emptied after Townsend's fantastic late solo effort and a lot of Palace fans stayed around singing 'don't worry, 'bout a thing' after the final whistle. By the time we made it out, they were opening the gate.

Best places to park are definitely the industrial estates by the M5 - everyone ignores the no-right-turn signs on Kenrick Way.

Worst away trip of the season now is arguably West Ham. Soulless ground in a an utterly soulless area. And it's incredibly annoying that when you get out of the ground at the end, you have to walk approximately 14 miles to get to back to the station.

I feel sorry for West Ham fans for having their club utterly ruined by Gold, Sullivan and Brady.

This is avoidable. Even though they try and make it seem as though it isn't. I really like the olympic park area as well. Scoffs around the corner from ground is awesome.

Just need to know the local area a bit. Personally for me i actually like the west ham trip for all but the view. It's far better than the area around upton park.

I am not sure i would be keen on the stadium itself.. but the location absolutely pisses on what they had before.

Upton Park was without doubt an utter shithole. However, I'd take that over the utterly plastic wankfest that is 'Olympic Park' and Westfield every day of the week. It's not a football ground, but it's also not an area where a football club should be.

Pudding Mill Lane Station is just a couple of hundred yards from the away end, very easy to find, just spend 5 minutes familiarising yourself with Google maps aerial view before the day of the game and you'll be fine.

There is free street parking not a million miles away, and a McDonalds on the walk to the ground (admittedly not everyone's cup of tea)

For me the most annoying thing is the sheer distance from the pitch in the upper tier.

Olympic Park is lovely and by no means a "wankfest" been great for the local area and offers a really pleasant environment to spend time. Westfield is by no means my favourite place in the world but it is what it is (a shopping centre). The whole thing is vastly superior to the selhurst area with far better transport options, food and drink and general pleasantness.

The view from the upper tier is the problem with the olympic stadiium. Everything else about it including the concourse areas (which are the nicest in the league, natural light and not feeling like you are in a basement with the cables and pipes). Is brilliant.. The problem of course is the fact that because the stadium is wholly unsuitable for football i would not want it. Yes the traipse back to stratford station is a downside but it's still far and away not even close to the worst away trip on so many levels.

Impossible to say. The current away S/T phase only gives a choice of A1 or A4, which are the end blocks (top and bottom). At £25 tickets it would have been nice if they had been a bit bolder and put blocks A2 and A5 on sale as well from the outset (to give the first bookers a better choice than a view of the corner flag), however the main thing is that everyone who wants one for this game should be fine as there will surely be enough tickets for all who want to go

3 stations within 5 mins walk of the stadium and no queuing to get in station, ours is one of the best. Ours is only horrendous if you try and drive to the stadium.

Even accounting for the 3 stations which are all on lines that take a while from london and only one is a 5 minute walk albeit not on match day unless you are coming out of the bottom corner of the holmesdale. We are still the least enjoyable ground to travel to and visit in london out of the premier league teams in my opinion. The local area has nowhere to eat, barely anywhere acceptable to drink and the parking etc. it appalling.

Chelsea, Wembley, The olympic park, The emirates may suffer from being soulless themselves but as a an experience in terms of going there, spending time around the ground and things like the concourse areas are miles apart from selhurst in my opinion. I wouldn't swap because of the match experience but to claim we are in some easy to get to, pleasant to spend time area is seriously one eyed (I appreciate that many don't care but i am getting to the point in life where i like a decent experience with the match rather than just singing songs whilst standing in an inch of piss in a local pub).

I don't go shopping but will often stop for a bite to eat and a drink, I will often socialise in the area under the seats and the local pubs. I also just like being somewhere that isn't a hole generally. The transport links are ok but seeing as i am rating it against other london experiences it's not what i would call convenient. White hart lane was the worst but currently i would say we currently hold the crown.

The old white hart lane, upton park and selhurst are probably the best for the in game atmosphere though so perhaps there is something to said for old school dives in holes but in reality there is a lot also to be said for spending your spare time somewhere pleasant.

Have you tried parking at the Emirates, Spurs or Chelsea, or trying to get a tube after these matches? At Palace there is plenty of free parking nearby, great access to three train stations with links from two major London stations and from the South Coast or 20 minute walk to East Croydon (less than walk the walk to Seven Sisters). The thing that makes our ground harder is the fact that it is further South than other London clubs and therefore further round M25 if driving and further from Euston/Kings Cross if arriving from the North.

Parking i agree but that just inevitable because they are central london. As for the tube.. yes.. have had no issue whatsever getting away from chelsea, arsenal, spurs or west ham. Transport links aside the places are just nicer places to be. I don't think there is any debate about that is there? I just don't gettiing hating west ham on any level other than the stadium bowl itself. A very enjoyable place to spend time.

I personally like a bit of both.. hence why I rate chelsea as the best overall. Old style ground for atmosphere but in a great part of london for grabbing some lunch and a drink before and after. All a stones throw from civilisation. Certainly puts the cherry's or the prince of wales followed by a slow stopper to victoria to shame.

The majority of pubs around Selhurst/Norwood/Thornton Heath are awful, but I'd still rather drink in them than a Premier Inn at Westfield.

Always go by car to Arsenal and White Hart Lane. It is a myth that there is no free street parking nearby, most people are just assume it is impossible or don't want to go to the trouble of doing some basic research to find it.

I'll concede that Chelsea is a bugger to find free street parking near.

I suspect that is because the 'basic research' provides contrary advice.
Arsenal Website
Supporters are strongly advised not to drive to Emirates Stadium. The ground is situated in a mainly residential area with an extensive Event Day Parking Scheme in operation. Only car owners with resident's permits will be allowed to park on-street in the designated areas and any cars parked illegally will be towed away.

Parking is limited around the Emirates, with an extensive residents only parking scheme in operation on matchdays. A better option may be to park a little further out near a tube station, Cockfosters for example, and then get the tube to the Emirates.

From memory, isnt West Brom all one tier? Upper probably refers to back half.

Basic research involves looking up the extent of the controlled parking zone on the Islington Council website, making a note of where the zone ends, and parking in the first road outside that zone. Approx 12 minutes walk. Glad that most people don't make the effort to do the same of course.

Same price on Trainline as well, Now it's £17.

Marlyebone to Brum return,Train takes 1h 48 mins up there and a bit longer back.

Also saves using Virgin out of Euston, Virgin seem to over sell their trains and you end up sitting on the floor or standing from recent experiences. Or just plain refuse to let you on because the train is full, as happened at Liverpool away.

It's all 1 tier at West brom.

Yes definitely the upper blocks.

The best seats in my opinion are in A3 nearest to the West brom support. You are also behind the goal in this block rather than off to the side, these tickets will be sold last though as the box office fills up the stand from the other side first (A1 and A4 first).

I have always found the easiest way to get away from the emirates if heading back towards central london for home or train stations is to get a bus rather than the tube. A short walk to highbury grove/park and you can jump on a 19 that takes you to central london and doesn't take long at all. I am always amazed how empty the busses are despite a match having just finished.

Leaving stamford bridge is very easy by tube if you just walk through brompton cemetry and up to earls court. Never seems to be many around there after the match.

Wembley is easier by tube, the way they get wembley park going after a game has always amazed me. Left on full time on sunday and just walked straight onto a platform and onto a train.

West ham I tend to walk back through the park which is pleasant enough and head for Leyton tube (admitedly a bit of a walk but a nice one for the most part). Either that or i head for victoria park and get a bus back towards bethnal green.

I am yet to find a convenient bloody way to get away from spurs to be honest.

Palace is limited if heading back to london. I tend to go for thornton heath but the trains are packed stoppers and its often slow progress.

I personally like a bit of both.. hence why I rate chelsea as the best overall. Old style ground for atmosphere but in a great part of london for grabbing some lunch and a drink before and after. All a stones throw from civilisation. Certainly puts the cherry's or the prince of wales followed by a slow stopper to victoria to shame.

There's absolutey no point using trainline over the Chiltern site as the price isn't going to be any different and trainline charges a booking fee.

Best way to get to the ground and back again is via the tram, goes to both train stations. I was on the 17:30 out of New Street last year.

Just a quick point. If you turn up at Marylebone on the day without a train ticket and buy a day return get the return to the Hawthorns rather than Snow Hill or Moor St as it costs the same anyway. Those day tickets give you great flexibility.

It was some time back but it was super dark and dingy when we went in there.

As if to highlight just how bad the area around the ground is for finding something decent to eat. The very mediocre chippy on the whitehorse road has the cheek to increase the prices and halve the portions.

Mind you more relevant.. west brom is also rubbish from what i can tell. Albeit brum is perfectly decent. However what value it works out at. We are on the 12:23 out of euston and back on the 18:10. Myself and the boy £15 and £35 for tickets. We end up home about an hour later than a home game and it's probably around the same price for the day.

It’s only a 20 minute walk to Smethwick Rolfe Street (usually much less time than you would spend queing up at The Hawthorns) and there are much fewer people trying to get back to New Street from there, which is about a 10 minute trip.

Good idea thanks. Seems there is a 5.39 that takes just 6 minutes to New Street. Important to know where it is though as a few years ago we walked out in that direction and ended up in a rather dodgy part of Smethwick - couldn't find our way out and had to hail a cab to escape!

Last three seasons I've used Batleys cash and carry on Doranda Way. £5, very close to the M5. Bit of a jam getting out but no worse than most other grounds. Most people ignore the no-right-turn signs to get back on to Kenrick Way.

If you get there early enough there is also street parking around there but I can't vouch for how safe this is.

I got on a DELAYED train to kings cross from Stevenage before the spurs game. Took forever to get to kings cross because of ongoing work on that line and missed most of the first half.

Strange advice given at Kings Cross as the normal route would be change at Peterborough into a Cross Country service direct to Birmingham (1:30hr longer via Leeds). This services passes Leicester so the advice should have been to cross the road to st Pancras and change at Leicester from there.

I did think that too. Glad someone on here told me about the st pancras route.

Virgin not specifically mentioning St Pancras as an alternate so just check there that any tickets are valid via that route.

If your train is cancelled you can take a train from Marylebone or kings cross to Leeds then to Birmingham or jump on a slow one(as long as it not been delayed beyond kick off!). Just been given this info at kings cross station.

Good luck everyone

Yes all of the southern West Coast main line affected. Some trains are getting through and the 0723 EUS to BHM has just arrived at Watford Jn 33 late but many not left Euston yet that should have.

Yup meant direct from Marylebone. Sorry.

As was at kings cross they said go Leeds. Then change.

Whatever you do, do not go via Leeds

Unless you want to miss the game

It was probably a Charlton/millwall/chelsea/arsenal /spurs/wham fan as he asked what I needed to be there for and he said if I go that route I'd make kick off. :clown:

Now on a train just departed, the first train out of Euston this morning. Departed at 8.55. All trains declassified so just get on any train you can irrespective of which one you’re booked on. Standing only, as you can imagine.

It’s manic at Euston, when we arrived they said there was nothing departing at all! Got lucky! Slow but on our way.

I suggest everyone avoids Euston if you can and use Marylebone instead. All tickets are valid with any rail company on any other line I understand. Allow more time!

Major disruption between euston and Birmingham..first train up there today just been cancelled. Bollocks.
Mate of mine was on the first train with an issue yesterday. Stuck, not moving with no power on the train for a couple of hours. So very late arrival home near Brum. However he also said the CPFC team were on the same train, so late arrival for everyone yesterday it seems.

Im hearing its easing at Euston with trains behind us due to depart, but still expect some delays. Overhead cable problems north of Watford Junction apparently, but other people have been told about different issues!

I'm on the train having gone to Marylebone. Tickets are valid and seats were available. Is it Ok to go the same way home?

Once again thank you to everyone for your help otherwise I might have been in big bother right now. Hopefully it will all be worth it with a win.

Given the scale of disruption I expect ticket acceptance will still be in place later as well but worth checking the Virgin website or National Rail Enquiries

Looks like it will be on for most of the day with trains and train crew out of place as well as a knock on effect.

You do have to go on the delay repay site and attach a photo of your ticket, assuming you've kept it. Although they say it's preferable to claim within 24 hours, I think you actually have longer than that. I did this for delay back from Newcastle on the Sunday morning after the match, when there was a hold up at York and got 25% back on return ticket.

I have now done it. I was hoping they would do it automatically as it says on the website but they never did.
