"IT'S FRIDAY THE 13TH EVERY AWAY DAY!"
Followin the Queen's sad passin' a week gone Thorzday it woz inevitable that wor game at West Ham on the following Sunday wud be caalled off!---And so it woz!
This meant that the train tickets bought and hotel sorted were useless--so we managed to change the bookings to the Sporz game on Saturday 22nd of Octobaa!
They then moved that game again to Sunday the 23rd, despite havin moved it once for live telly and so again we had to change the bookings! ? (Thank yoo SKY!)
The Queen's death meant that a train strike last Saturday woz cancelled and moved to when we play Fulham away in a fortneets time---MEEENIN! That the train tickets we had bought to travel to London and back on the day were again useless!
Add in the fact that there woz a train strike on the day we were to play Brighton away in August and the situation gets ridiculous!
We had to rebook that to travel on the Friday and come back on the Sunday at great extra expense for hotels and more train tickets! (We claimed the train money back but had to pay an extra £105 each for hotels!)
And then there woz Wolves away when the train stopped at Crewe and we were told that because of unfinished linework near Wolverhampton the train cud travel nee forthaa!
8 of us then had to climb in 2 taxis on the station concourse to Wolves az there woz nee othaa way of gettin there!
£200 between the 8 which worked oot at £25 each!
AND (wait for it!!!) Wor train back from Liverpoool the day after the game woz cancelled because of a shortage of train crew!---which meant we had to catch a much later train back yem!
AND THEN! (aye, there's more!) there woz the 'roadtrip' to Tranmere for a Leegue Cup tie, where THREE motorways were closed on the way back because of night road works which meant it took considerably langer to get back than intisepated!!! ⬅️(We naa aall the big words!)
HONESTLY!-- YI COULDN'T POSSIBLY MAKE IT UP!!!
Iz it Friday the 13th every time we play away this season??????
