    Are you in London or Manchester?

    There's no station in Fleetwood but you can get the train to Blackpool & the tram to the ground. Plus Fleetwood is managed by Uwe Rosler so you get to see a City legend. So if you're in Manchester then it has to be Fleetwood.

    As of the current plans, I would be coming up from London to Fleetwood or Coventry, and then to Manchester the next day.

    And has a history (one time counts) of a woman riding nude on horseback. Never know, you might see it again.

    Finalizing a trip to England in mid-December. If I can arrive on the morning of the 15th, I might consider attending the Wednesday-Wolves match in Sheffield on the evening of the 15th and then catch a train to Manchester on the morning of the 16th to watch City-Spurs.

    Would it make more sense to fly into MAN on Friday and then catch a train from the airport to Sheffield or fly directly into DSA? Looks like DSA is a good 45 drive to Sheffield, so it doesn't appear to save that much time versus flying into MAN.

    Cheers...

    Trains from Sheffield to Manchester are frequent. If you are flying from USA I'm not sure you can fly to DSA, it is only a small airport. Flying to Manchester will give you more options and the train station is at the airport. If you are staying in Sheffield it makes more sense to fly into Manchester as there are more connections and Sheffield is a dump.
