Hi,

I am going to the Cardiff game and travelling from and back to London on the same day to Euston.

My question is with the soccer bus from the ground back to the station do you think me booking the 5.47pm train at Lime Street back to London is pushing it i.e. with waiting for people to get on the bus and traffic etc or should I go with the safer bet of booking the 6.47pm train?

It is much cheaper for me to book a ticket for the exact time of the train rather than an open ticket so that isn't a option for me.

Many Thanks.

Defo 6.47. That soccer bus queue always long. I reckon you'd only be getting into central about quarter to six anyway. At least that way, worst case scenario, you could always have a victory pint whilst you wait for your train.

I was leaning that way too.

Anyone got a space for one on the way back to London (ideally South) for the Red Star game?

Will probably head up on the train. Happy to chip in petrol!

Usually when you buy a return ticket from Lime Street it will say you can catch any train back as long as its not during peak hours. Ive booked the 5.47 one myself but if you miss it its no big deal because you can catch the next one at 6.47 with the same ticket.

3 things

1) Don't use the trainline website, they charge you a booking fee. Use any of the operators websites as they don't charge a fee.
2) If you buy an 'advanced' ticket, you must get the train time specified on the ticket. You can't just get a different one to suit your needs.

That isn't the norm though, you either didn't get your ticket checked or the person that checked it wasn't arsed. If you have an advance ticket then that is supposed to be valid on that timed train only.

Or he got an off peak ticket with a seat reservation.

You might have a seat reserved on a specific train, but it's the actual train ticket that determines when you can travel.

If you've paid the full fare of around £83 for the return, or £42 for that particular leg of the journey, it can be used anytime on that day at the weekend. If you've paid less, then it will be an advance ticket where you have to used the specified train that you booked.

What's the best way to get back to Newcastle after midweek games? Last train back is always before FT and last coach back is normally 10pm. I normally either stay out and get the first train back in the morning (3am) or book a hotel.

Very tight might even struggle getting a cab up that late . Maybe get a train from central to kirkdale itís a 15 min walk from there depending on what time they are

If on time be fine, just pop outside Lime Street and the 917 across the road to ground last buses go around half an hour before kick off time.
