May be worth saying that drinking on the London Underground is prohibited.  They can be pretty strict about it.

I'll be in The Central as well then. As a side note, has anyone ever had problems wearing colours to this ground?

Nope. I've mingled in with them on the tube and in the streets around the ground with no problems in the past.

Same. In terms of colours all I had was a scarf, but it was still visible and I had no issues. I'm going on Sunday and plan to wear a scarf + justice/DBTS stickers.

Takes about 30-40 mins after the match at Upton Park tube station to get on the tube to Central. Big queue goes through the estate.

Hope this helps.

Go to East Ham. 15-20 minute walk from the ground, no queues and the tube is empty.

Excellent thanks.

I usually get off at Plaistow getting to the ground and just follow the crowd - can never remember the way back to that station afterwards.

Walk to East Ham tube station, get on any westbound train, get off at West Ham, change to the Jubilee line, get a westbound train to Canary Wharf.

It was designed to suck as much money out of Olympic tourists as possible. The second you get on the train at Stratford you'll be walking through a set of metaphorical cash magnets.

Still, decent views, and there are better pubs in closer reach in near St Pancras/Liverpool Street.

Won't miss the place as a destination, will as an atmospheric old ground, even if it's full of whoppers these days.

If i was one of their fans id be absolutely gutted. Cant see any enjoyable atmospheric aspect about the new ground. Not even sure it'll be that great as an away ground for singing.

Same, we'll get a bigger allocation but it'll be full of tourists.

I would imagine most people would still drink around that way, before heading towards Stratford for the game? I don't know of many/any decent pubs in the Stratford area - it's a bit of a shit hole.

Probably stick central, around St Pancras/Liverpool Street for getting the train or tube out to Stratford. The Hamilton Hall Spoons at Liverpool Street station is a good one if you're after a pint and some food, some decent pubs around there too. Not sure there's much of anything around Stratford because it's essentially a shopping centre now.
