    25% off deal for city fans expired today. Messaged the club to see if its being extended and no response. Anybody heard anything?

    I tweeted City and Virgin Trains about this a few weeks ago as I wanted to book travel for October - they replied saying they were "currently in discussions" and to "watch this space". Nothing's happened since!

    Yeah its disappointing. All well and good reducing the away ticket price to £30 but if paying increased rail fares to London games then not really seeing any difference to last years costs for some of those games

    For Saturday games you can get a £40 return and tube if you book in advance. They only do it on the trains with lower bookings, but it's easy enough for any Saturday 3pm or even 5.30pm. You have to check on National Rail Enquiries I believe, a few weeks beforehand.

    Yes, I spotted this and contacted both City and Virgin a few weeks ago. City have confirmed to me that it is being renewed, still waiting for Virgin to reply...

    Sounds like when they stopped Megatrain fares from Liverpool and Runcorn to London (from £1 each way). Virgin and Stagecoach each said it was down to the other.

    Virgin's Manchester to Euston fares have double in two years. Now £44 return minimum if you book months in advance. They've priced me out for most trips!!!

    If things get desperate just take the Megabus, i did it last season. £6 return. Its a hell of a slog (4 and half hours each way) but saves a small fortune and you can just sleep on the way back
