making contact

.. seeing that a new contact was 'Carshalton Bluebird' and living next door in central Sutton I wanted to try to make contact but find I can't send a private message because I haven't posted enough so is this a start?

Re: making contact

Sutton I'll look into that for you.

In the meantime see what happens if you post a few more.

Re: making contact

Well, here's another post wondering about making contact with a supporter living in the same London borough as I do - so this is not about tonight's Cup replay - and part of me won't be too upset if we don't win that since I have already bought train tickets to go down from Paddington for the Bolton game on the 27th and that will be off if we're playing Man.City on Sunday 28th for TV .. the downside of games bought by TV, especially by SKY, is that more often than not, kick-off times are changed, sometimes even the day, so season ticket holders like me living in London have added expense if we've tried to get best train ticket prices by booking early!

Re: making contact

Sutton, I've tried booking early before and sometimes come a cropper when games times and datwes have been altered. Do you know about https://trainsplitting.trainsplit.com/ - this and other sites allow you to split the same train journey throughout the country. In your case, London to Reading, Reading to Swindon and Swindon to Cardiff - all returns. The sitres do all the work for you and you should be able to save about £10 on your London to Cardiff return - provided you are nless than 60 in which case the saving is about £6. These sites currently don't seem to offer advanced tickets which are the cheapest available..

Re: making contact

A number of regulars would endorse your comments about changes to days/times for fixtures.

As you were able to PM me have a go at PMing Carsharlton mate.

Re: making contact

Thanks Rossbloom49 - I had heard of the way of cutting train ticket costs by collecting a number of short distance tickets but this is the first time I've been told about a website and I'll certainly try it .. but I've already checked out cost of some GWR tickets for future matches in their "sale" and switched to booking coach tickets for the Middlesborough, Bristol, and Birmingham games.  But in future I'll certainly look at your trainsplit website so thanks for that!

Re: making contact

I use the site Ross suggested too and it is really helpful - once I think I had about 16 tickets for a return journey to Cardiff but it saved me a lot of money !!!

Oh and by the way I totally agree with you about the nightmare of changed kick off times!!

Re: making contact

Good evening Sutton Bluebird. Good to see anoher Bluebirs nearby. Just wondering where people are drinking before the Millwall game? Travelling up from Carshalton and didn’t know whether it was safer to drink in the Hope and then catch the train or have a beer at London Bridge

Re: making contact

Just trying to reply to Sutton Bluebird but it seems I have to make 3posts until I can reply to a message. Looking forward to the game on Friday but was wondering where City fans may grab a pint before the game? London Bridge seems the popular option.
