As the year started I was wide awake and talking to a friend, then the Owens rang to say happy new year which was really nice!
I didn't get much sleep! Then off I went to my local train station for 9.30am! It was way too early!! I met Dan and the day began! We were off to Birmingham .. For a quick train swap! Train transfer was quick! Then on our train to stoke! Now although I have visited stoke before, I'd never been to the Britania stadium!
I wasn't sure what to expect! After getting off our train we were told we could get a bus £3 return or a taxi. After much thought we got the bus as this meant I didn't have todo any transferring. So we get on the bus and it didn't end up leaving til 12.30!! Luckily we got to the game .. Just!!
Stokes wheelchair area is elevated and away fans only. I got a good view of the pitch and the atmosphere as always from the united fans were fantastic!!
Getting back to the station was a nightmare as everyone was cramming on the busses luckily we got helped on by 2 united fans!
I had booked a train back for 2 hours after kick off to give us time, we was back wishing 30 mins! So stoke station were very kind and got us on to an earlier train! We both fell asleep in the way back!! Then the long taxi home!!
It was fantastic to go on another away day! I had a great time and I hope that Dab did too, special thanks to him helping me out throughout the journey and during the game :)
This is my view at stoke!!
