Swans fan was asked did they notice anything new at the game He replied "Yes - a burger called "You Jack Burger". Radio guy said "Oh yeah - because you are called Jack's, isn't it ?" Caller couldn't correct him !
I'm sure no one does this, but always make sure you renew before your renewal date (at least three weeks according to Martin Lewis). Otherwise insurance companies take advantage of your need for insurance (especially if you let it lapse) and hike up the price, Cost me £62 more because of one day - my fault but totally unnecessary !
Parking The car park at the Memorial Stadium is completely sold out for the entire season.
"You'll be extremely lucky if you can find a space on Filton Avenue unless you arrive a couple of days in advance. All of the areas around the ground are residential and you'll have to battle for spaces with the locals as well as other home and away fans and police cones. With very few exceptions, finding a space within a five to ten-minute walk is relatively easy - parking on Muller Road is a popular choice as is Gloucester Road although this is often more difficult. If Muller Road and Gloucester Road are busy then there are many other roads across the other side of Gloucester Road - travel past the Wellington pub along Kellaway Avenue and you'll find another area of roads often used for matchday parking." This from the official site - very welcoming club
What do people prefer ? Myself, I tried going on the coach a couple of times and found the getting to a town early, then hanging around for an hour or more, before proceeding to the ground an hour or more before the game a bit much. I can see the appeal for drinkers, but apart from that ? All the other games I preferred driving and apart from Villa (I caught a train which was fine getting to the game but was chaos after the game) and Stoke (stayed overnight and waited ages soaking wet for a taxi) all were better. Probably just me but prefer setting my own agenda. Thoughts ?
