orwell it is then..will be full of reds and just 15mins walk!
I'm on row V seats 1,2 and 3 with my mates. Think we will be going the Orwell before the game, looks the best to take over and easiest to get to from the station. Anyone else doing it?

Walked right past the Orwell by fucking accident, ended up drinking inside the ground.

The little fat woman serving on the bar by N3 had a serious problem.

went to the orwell for 1 pint decided to make a move to the red robin which was a decent place for a few pints before the game. Few songs before we left which was good!
we've got a right back called steve finnan
when he plays were always winning
crosses the ball out and in again

Parked in the street about a mile away from the ground......was parked on the road with the ATS automaster on but firther up by the bridge where the road narrows and the park....was in a side street...got away fine after the game and was home very quickly...

Well worth parking that bit further away IMO......

Best pubs are at the station, but if you want to save yourself a few bob, about a 10 minute walk from the station under the bridge is an alcohol zone where you can take some cans, not advised to get home end tickets as ther was 70s style crowd trouble when we scored in the wigan end
You what lad?!

Get back to libpool and stay there.
Wigan doesnt have hotels as no-one wants to stay there.

Would recommend parking in Alker Street or one of the surrounding streets which is about a 15min walk from the ground.

Avoided both the pre and post-match traffic and didn't have to pay for the privilege.

If I haven't gone completely mad - wigan is on the 21st and villa is on the 18th..
Itís not even about individuality, itís about the team. Our game was based on his controlling of the tempo. Squeeze the life out of the opposition and then strike. That is our game. Like a pack of pythons.

if you however let us know if its the villa game or the wigan game you're going to , can hopefully assist a wee bit..

take a look at www.nationalrail.co.uk

Take a look at london-manchester or london-crewe and then manchster-wigan or crewe-wigan. should be around 35-40 pounds.. (london-wigan gives you stupid prices..)

Depends on your schedule and other plannes, but you stuggle to get to london after the match without taking a 6-7 hours on the trains/buses as far as i can see..

Other option could be trying to get a lift on here or if there should be coaches going south.. wednesday wigan just before x-mas is not category A in interest so to speak..

If possible, i'd have gone to liverpool after the match and taken a train in the morning..

Hi, wondering if its actually possible to get the 11.03 train back to Liverpool after this game. Game will finish at roughly 10pm. There won't be a lock-in will there?

random question. do you think this game (21st of Dec. at night) has much of a chance of postponement? are there any credible reports about december forecast? i'm aware wigan don't have the greatest pitch going round either. hope this isn't an absurd thing to ask!

It's 3 weeks away - would you trust a long-term forecast that far ahead? Always a chance but we won't know until a few days before. Autumn has been one of the mildest on record.
