Upset at the spelling or the prospect of two such exciting games?!

 

On the original point, a few of us are heading to the Southend game and its ticket on the gate only.

Just a reminder that most of the pubs around the Palarse ground charge extra if your wearing a visiting team''s shirt...happened last year when we had the re-arranged Boxing Day game.

I''d recommend going for a drink at Crystal Palace itself (not too far from the stadium) as there are 3 or 4 large pubs there and I''m guessing quite a few fans will be traveling to Crystal Palace station if not Selhurst.

Will be going to the Palace match tomorrow night, has anything been arranged with regards to a likely place to meet City fans beforehand?Also any idea on ticket price? have checked both our and Palace''s official sites, but can''t see anything about it.

Bought a ticket in advance - against my principles but as it was a fiver cheaper, the price of a couple of pints swayed it

fair play to the club as the lad said he would post it out second class as there was a few days to go - every penny counts !

there''s a Wetherspoons outside Thorton Heath BR station (Flora Sandes) bit plastic like a works canteen and an ''olde worlde'' type one outside the Norwood Junction Br station (The William Stanley) - both15 mins to the ground

Usually a fair number of City fans get in there before the Palace games

Anyone want to meet in the White Hart a decent pub in actual Crystal Palace which isn''t such a dive, can hop on a bus to Selhurst afterwards?

Follow the A127 to Southend. Continue towards the

town centre, through the lights near to the Bell Pub. At the next

roundabout turn right (3rd turning), continuing on the A127. The

ground is on the right just past the next traffic lights. If

you turn right as you reach the ground, this will put you behind the

away end where there is plenty of street parking to be found.

Otherwise there is a car park at the ground, behind the Main Stand

which costs £5, or there is the Southend High

School For Boys which also offers car parking for £5 per car (the

school entrance is on Prittlewell Road).

[/quote]Cheers for that, I''m finishing work early on Thursday so depending on the squad I''ll probably travel down.

As I said in the other thread there will be plenty of parking down the side streets tonight and save yourself a fiver. I parked down a side road 2 years ago for the league game and had about a ten min walk.
