Again, we have sold wor entire allocation of 3,000 tickets despite the kick off time, which of course meenz that anybody travellin' by coach or drivin', will have to leave at 3 to 4 bells in the mornin' to make the start!
'The Geordie Times' iz takin' the sensible option and we are travellin' doon later this afternoon and stoppin' in a hotel in Fulham (which iz 'next door' to Chelsea!)
The £30 match ticket price iz £25 cheaper than the last time we were here (aye! 55 quid!) thanx to the Premyaa Leegues new maximum price cap, although the train iz very expensive at £81:50 (and that's with a railcard givin' us 33% off!)
A full match report and 'Lets gan on a bender in DECEMBER' pub crawl crusade will appear on theeze pages sometime on Sunday!
PS: Az the kick off time iz so orly, we will probably anly have time to de just ONE bar before the match!
