windermere_royal With that kick off time its looking like the coaches will need to leave at around 6.00am, thanks for that BT , the games with the least travelling times have the prime TV spots , cant see us selling any more than around 2.000. if that

set off at that time its only 3 hrs with a clear run


Only three hours driving but the local constabulary will want coaches there well over an hour before kick-off, plus there'll be a 30mins+ service station stop somewhere. So 6am start from Reading will be about right.

Don't see what the problem is with the early kick off, still going to take the same amount of time to get there!

If anything I prefer it as it means we will get back into town to celebrate sooner!?

It's actually quicker as there is less traffic on the roads early in the morning.

I'll be on a coach but its those wanting to go by train that are limited. They can only get one train at 6:10 from Reading to the Interchange and arrive an hour before kickoff. Its still a good 1/2 hour walk from the Interchange to the ground.

Too right (they've also banned them). Hopefully none of our fans will do anything like that...

But realistically how long will it take in total, getting to and from the airports plus flight time?

Surely it's just as quick and much much cheaper for someone to drive?

We got priced out of it anyway, flights went up steeply.

Plane would be MUCH better though - you can booze your day away and nobody has to spend 8hrs behind the wheel.
