  1. Never been to Stranraer so unsure of how quickly you can get back to the station but might have to sacrifice the end of the game to catch that 16:59 train rather than have to hang about til 19:03. With the benefit of hindsight we should have waited for news of the supporters busses before booking a return from Glasgow to Stranraer. Never mind. It's done now.
  2. Had hoped we'd be able to but it seems there isn't a direct train line between Carlisle and Stranraer and we'd still have to go via Glasgow unfortunately. There's a national express bus leaves Stranraer at 6pm and scheduled to get to Carlisle at 8:45pm. Last train from Carlisle to Newcastle is 21:28 so a bit of a gamble booking that in case there was any delay on the bus journey.
  3. Hell of a place to get to this. Booked trains the other day, via Edinburgh and Glasgow on the morning of the game. Trains don't run late enough to get back to Newcastle so staying over in Glasgow Saturday night. Then today Newcastle announce they're playing Hearts at Tynecastle the night before. We change trains in Edinburgh on the Sat' morning. Quite frustrating. To make it a double header is tempting but it means booking more trains and paying for another nights stay. Not quite ruling it out however.
  4. I'd forgotten the bit about his failure at Bristol City. A repeat at Sunderland would be nice.
  5. Pretty sure if you book the bus through it's quite cheap, and think you just end up on the citilink coaches.
  6. Nice to have a stress free weekend. A wander round Hartlepool marina for us today. In the words of Band Aid "Well tonight thank god it's them instead of us."
  7. Simply, what a weekend! The pain we fans go through, sometimes i wish i just wasn't interested.This weekend has made that pain seem worthwhile.
  8. Genuinely terrifying few minutes in front of SSN when Raith went 2-1 up. 3 minutes felt like an eternity. Fantastic turn around under JR. Well done SMFC. Now that you can all relax i hope all you buddies enjoy your night and the summer.
  9. Aye. Experience has taught me that it's only a matter of time before good things at NUFC turn to s**t. I'm happy for now but hoping for the icing on the cake this weekend. Newcastle take their unexpected chance of going up as champions and saints avoid the play offs. Now considering how things were a few months back, for saints to have a chance of the latter really IS unexpected. COYS.
  10. Fairly late decision to go up for this one. Was worried Newcastle wouldn't have wrapped up promotion and i'd be too stressed to enjoy the saints game. So glad i went. Didn't want the game to end and wanted saints to keep banging the goals in. Witnessed one of the best saints goals i've ever seen. With the Morton game i've seen us score 9 in my last 2 games. I've gone many a season without seeing us total that many. Hope everything goes for us next week but if not there's no reason why we shouldn't survive through the play offs.
  11. Cheers Div. If you hear anything to the contrary about after the game give me a shout.
  12. If you can still attend free, as a non member after this Saturdays game i must give it a go. Couple of pints then train from St James' to Glasgow in time for the 18:45 from Queen St. Don't fancy heading straight to Glasgow and having to suffer drunken old firm fans. Will also save walking into Paisley for a pint elsewhere.
  13. Not sure about Dumbarton being safe. If we could beat Raith and Dumbarton lost at Tannadice we'd be above Dumbarton on GD and needing to equal their last day result.
  14. up for the game tomorrow and staying over in Glasgow,(Springfield Quay). Undecided between last train from Gilmour St or No 9 bus which stops outside hotel i believe. A lot depends on how the game goes and how greedy i am for one last pint in Paisley after getting off the supporters bus. Don't want to commit to buying a train ticket in case i opt for the bus. Am i right in saying you can buy tickets on the train up to Glasgow and will that be the case so late at night? Last train about midnight i think.
  15. Kath is the only one of us at St James' park who has seen any cups for about the last 50 years, although NUFC frequently manage to get 50000 mugs to turn up week in week out.
