We set off from Effingham Road and got as far as Prince of Wales Road before heading back towards where we had set off from. We were told that if you set off you wouldn't get a refund. Some of the lads on the coach decided to make a beeline for the train and tried there luck there.

We turned back at Ripley just after 11am Arrived back at Sheffield just before 16.45pm.That's how bad the conditions were that day. WTF::ghoulguy::ph34r:

I remember it well. We didn't get as far as that. Me and a mate walked into town from Stannington only to find out our coach wasn't turning up. We were gutted it was the only game I missed that season.

Shout out to all those with Swansea tickets. 

 

I hope my TV aerial survives. 

I've got a satellite dish, freeview and fibre broadband so one way or another I'm covered.

 

Bring your own beer and nuts.

Which one? I was in Drakehouse one and they had run out of Ralgex and incontinence pants. This country - even the treat of snow and people start hoarding basics!

Don't believe the hype.

 

It might not turn up.

 

If it does, it won't settle.

 

If any does, it'll be gone by Wednesday tea time.

 

Paranoia since Fish had wind trouble in 1987. :laugh:
