I think they’re waiting for timetable confirmation. The engineering works are around Stoke so trains should still run via Crewe and Wilmslow. Hope so anyway. But I’m not trying to book tickets until full capacity at the ground is confirmed and we know for sure that the Norwich game isn’t being moved because of the Barcelona friendlyAvanti website not too informative with regard to our first 2 home games. I can see engineering works will cause some disruption but at present weekends in August are blanked out. Is this simply because revised timetables are yet to be confirmed or should we make alternative travel arrangements now?
It used to cost me 4d for four bus rides, !/- into the ground and a tanner for a programme, I think! Could be slightly out with my calculations but I seem to recall making the round trip with a two shilling piece.We are all Legacy Fans now remember. It's just a natural evolution. Age limitations eliminates the drive option, shortage of cash scuppers the train option, concern for our own health eliminates the desire, and the non ownership of latesr tech eradicates the ability to deal with eTickets.
In short there comes a time to spend what time and cash we have left doing what we truly enjoy. I rather suspect that for many older fans, this costly, time consuming and newly regulated routine around attending a game, that could once be achieved by a 5p bus ride and 80p admission in an experience that took little more than 3 hours total, will soon wear very thin.
Inflation had taken it's toll by the mid 60s when I started going, think it was 3d or 4d for half fare on the 99 from Sale, 2/6d to get in the Scoreboard End or if it was pissing it down 3/6d in the Platt Lane stand and a shilling for the programme, food was a Wagon Wheel, can't remember what they cost. Five bob in total would have been enough for most games.It used to cost me 4d for four bus rides, !/- into the ground and a tanner for a programme, I think!
