    It depends if you frequent Pubs or not.
    Try The Hare and Hounds on Shudehill before a game, plenty of old boys in there.

    He is on about away games.

    The whole grudge against SCCM is that they want to give priority for themselves to pick and chose which aways they go to, over that of fans who go to most or all games.

    Questions still the same, plenty of old faces still go, you just need to know where to meet up.
    It's not an old mens club, young and old mix.
    But I take your point about SCCM and as I've said on here before I've seen the Chairman of a very well know branch selling tickets at away games.
    These should have been returned to the club and resold but obviously would not do it incase it impacted on further allocations.

    Hi Simmo. I had a chat with John Morgan (Official Supporters Club Transport Secretary) at the end off today’s AGM. I raised your question and the OSC were keen on football specials but Virgin trains wouldn’t go for it. They also do a lot of the railway maintenance on Sunday evenings when we are coming back from Wembley.

    I think Virgin recognised that there was a gap in their offer and discussions resulted in the discount on train tickets for football fans. I assume fan groups from several Clubs raised away day travel with them.

    We used to go in there for night games. There had usually been a funeral for one of the punters and free butties left over.

    Thanks for enquiring and getting a response. Pity, as that was something that worked and still could when large numbers are travelling.
