MATCH PHOTOS: Merthyr Town vs Farnborough   Message 43671Sun, 27 August 2017 16:15  Go to next message

Greetings...all that way for nothing! 6 hours after I'd cycled, taken a train, two tubes, a train, another train, a bus and then another train I took these snaps. Enjoy.

P.S. Yes I missed the "violent conduct" incident - too busy focusing on the player being treated for an injury, sorry.

Well played Don for for making it from Essex to Merthyr by public transport. We ducked out because of the bustitution of the trains between Newport and Cardiff. The end to end journey time coming back did not look good at all. I could have volunteered to drive, but spending a large chunk of Saturday negotiating Bank Holiday traffic did not appeal.

There's also a history of duff journeys to Merthyr, such as when we made it to the ground only to to find out the ref had declared the pitch waterlogged 10 minutes earlier. That we were able to watch the Merthyr team training on the dry bit didn't help.

And did I mention the time when the Farnborough team coach (I was on board) lost a skylight when traversing the Severn Bridge in high winds on a Tuesday night? The fittings disappeared into the night behind us down the motorway, as the driver was fearful the coach would be blown onto its side if we stopped. We never did hear if anyone hit the debris.

Sounds like I got off very lightly on my Merthyr journey, Nigel!

Rail-replacement bus in Essex today though ;-(
