Up at 12, at watford junction via mcdonalds at 2 and off to brum. Fairly eventless train journey, first cans were opened, just listening to ipod mostly. Got to Birmingham just after 3.30 and very soon came along the holte lounge with good noise coming from it so decided to have a look, but for £3 i me and mate shortly moved on. The came across the aston social members club. We decided to just sit outside rather than pay to get in but when we sat down there were 2 passes to get in on the wall so we got in for free, decent enough atmosphere in there. Watched Grand National drunk bit more and made way to ground. Stopped for a bit on that field outside the ground with few others on route.
Pre-match just before kick off, heard the news that would have kept me smiling even if we'd done a roma and been 4-0 down at half time, L***n relegated
At match, we spent alot of it shouting rooney songs 'coz we're so bad in our family section seats Got the minute of glory and chaos when we were level, loved every minute, no, second of it . Good effort by lads and by fans and was good to have are short moment of glory. Spotted the flag voted for on here hanging off upper tier, nice.
After game made way to aston, walked in the wrong direction for about 10 mins and then saw a bus going to brum new street, got on for free and had to laugh as the bus drove past the hundreds queueing for the station, meaning we could get train an hour earlier than scheduled. Packed train but managed to find a seat in first class and again largely eventless journey on train.
Got back to Watford Junction about 10.45 and probably the most interesting part of my day to read./write about was as i walked down my road on way home. I was absolutely dying for a p!ss and couldn't wait til i got to my house or even the ally so i just had to go infront of someones house of pavement. Obviously picked the house that was dark and curtains drawn so i didnt have anyone looking out their window to see me p!ssin on their wall (the wall at the front of their drive, not their house). Car came down my road and stopped by me and i thought it was going to be some member of the public who has to say their bit, carried on p!ssing waiting for this person to say something out their window and have their moan but they didnt. Turned out they were waiting to get into their drive, which i was currently blocking by p!ssing on their wall I qucikly finished, nodded and smiled in apology and quickly walked off
Overall, good day out, decent enough atmosphere and an OK match.
