Assuming you mean after the game?

If you want to go straight away, then walk it, it's not too far. If you're in no great rush, just go back to the pub for acouple, then the queues abit more bearable, or gone :wave

K will do.

An hour or so queueing at Upton park the last two times has made me want to look for an alternative after the game.  And I need to get away.

TFL site says there are engineering works on the Tube that weekend.

It appears that the Hammersmith & City line is open all the way from Euston, through Kings Cross and Liverpool Street to Upton Park/East Ham stations?
So these are meat pies.  What kind of meat exactly?

Word from the wise, to the not so ;D

All the trains have been knackered all season for us.

Do NOT rely on the District Line or Hammersmith and City to get you anywhere, as they are shite when they are running properly, let alone when all this is going on.

I strongly recommend that you have a quick gander on a map and work out the best way to walk from West Ham, or Barking, as the C2C overland are about the only things still running with any kind of good service. Both can be walked from in 20 - 30 min depending on pace.

Pubs are the same as usual. Boleyn and Denmark Arms still a big nono. Apparantly the Central is abit more welcoming, but if I was you I wouldn't run the risk.

Stick with The Millers (on the walk from Barking station, bog standard wetherspoons), Queens if you're not too mouthy ;) and the Duke of Edinburgh.

For anyone coming down by car, be aware that the bulk of the sidestreets are permit parking. Best thing to do is park off BARKING ROAD, there are afew roads down there that aren't. Don't leave it too late though, as due to the trains playing up there have been alot more home fans driving than usual. The area is quite notorious for break ins, so keep the valuables out of sight, and try to park outside a house.

Can't think of anything else you'd need to know, but like I say, just make sure you have a plan B on how to get out of there by rail if that is your travelling method of choice.

If I've missed anything, feel free to ask, and I hope to see some of you for a bevvy :wave

Marcus, how far is Forest Gate station from the ground, is it walkable (don't mind 1/2 hour or so) or do we need to get a cab and if so are there plenty of black cabs about?

About 30 min on foot I'd say. Haha black cabs ;D Best thing about East London is the abundance of mini cabs, much cheaper ;D

No worries.

And as I'm a giving person, I checked the trains for you all.

Assuming that you will be coming down into Euston, you want the Northern Line to MOORGATE, then Hammersmith or Central (i think) to LIVERPOOL STREET.

Then C2C overground to Barking or West Ham, whatever walking path that you think is easiest.

As long as you muddle your way to Liverpool Street you'll be fine.

Peace out.

Sorry Marcus, but I thought that the C2C trains went from Fenchurch Street, not Liverpool Street. Or is that just during the week?

By tube its district (green) to notting hill gate, then central (red) to mile end, then district to upton park. There may be a better route by train though.......

Liverpool FC would like to make supporters travelling to London for Saturday's match at West Ham United aware of the following announcement. 

A West Ham spokesman said: "After lengthy consultation with the Metropolitan Police, West Ham United has agreed not to sell alcohol to Liverpool supporters once the match has started at 17.30hrs.
 
"The kiosk will remain open for the sale of food, soft drinks, tea and coffee, but no alcohol will be sold once the match has started." 



I think this happened at Hull too?  Possibly something that all grounds might adopt - that will really dent some profits?  :hally
So these are meat pies.  What kind of meat exactly?

Then all of a sudden about 15 West ham fans came in and started chantting ICF ICF... and went for some reds fans in the back corner of the pub....was not a pretty site and we were lucky not to get caught up in it.

Right, on the way back from West Ham last night, stopped off at the services by Coventry on SOS.

Some lad gets a flyway from the shop, were all drunk to fuck, Alex (millsymate on here) volleys the ball in the air, I go to volley it back in the pitch black, didn't see it till last min, miss it, air kick and fall down with all me weight on me ankle.

Torn me anterior fibular ankle ligaments and foot swollen up to size of a tennis ball.

Was in agony on the coach back, straight to A&E off the coach (after picking me bird up from an 18th) now on crutches for 2 to 3 weeks an can't play footy for upto 10 weeks.
