Alright guys Im 15 from Wednesbury, I used to go to all the home games on the metro, but with the guy on the metro keeps asking my age and Its quite expensive at £2.50 especially when you have to stand up! So Now I go on the train, normally from Sandwell and Dudley as I get to go on a nice virgin train, well the first time I went on the train was Saturday when we played Brighton. Its also a lot cheaper than the metro! But anyways when we play Birmingham In a few weeks How should I get to Molineux and should I wear colours or not? Really I got two options, Train or Tram? I could catch the train from Tipton or Dudley port which is a london midland train but this again will have Birmingham fans on and I know that us and Birmingham have a history of football violence. Also I will be going to the match on my own, and meeting up with my mates in the ground.

You appear to have two issues, safety and cost. Which one is more important to you, saving a couple of Bob or getting your ead kicked in. Personally, I'd go on the train, but wouldn't show any signs of allegiance to Wolves albeit, if you end up with the Bloose fans, don't you risk being herded with them by the Old Bill to the ground?

Why not consider, travelling much earlier in the day, depending on train times and wasting some time window shopping or whatever else there is to do on the cheap, with no money to spare, I always found Public Libraries decent warm places to hang out, but times may well have changed since I last had to do that after being stranded in Cirencester with a blown head gasket in the freezing snow. :cry:

Alternatively, perhaps some kind soul on here from the Wednesbury area could give you a lift. Just don't shout out, 'they've got no Cowin Bovril' - you being 15 will probably need to do a google search on Jasper Carrott to understand that one. :wink:

Good luck.

I get the train to most matches, either from Coventry or Tipton and have never seen any problems on it. I'll almost certainly get the train to the Bloos game from Coventry - I wont be in colours though as I'll be going straight from work

Good idea and spend the fare money on chips. Don't you have to have a name like Billy, Alf or Wilf to do that though! :lol:

I think the young Wednesbury fellow will be fine on the train. Cover your colours if you're concerned, but just listen out for some uncouth Blues supporters, with that nasal Brummie whine.

I really hate it when you talking to a guy with a thick brummie accent, and he says larf. Grinds my gears that

To be honest, I'd bus it there, and catch a taxi back. Don't think its that much. When three of us taxi from Walsall its about £15 but you have to make sure you haggle.

Or catch an early metro, get some christmas shopping done in wolvo.

I'd be careful, think bloos might try and cause some of their 'famous zooloo trouble'

Think there will defo be trouble again this season. Just don't show your colours and just catch the cheapest way there. The Zulu's won't just pick on some random lad on a bus mate.

It could be one of those games I end up watching with one eye closed.

Kin ell, Tupper of the track and his famous fish supper, it's like de-javu all over again. Tupper of the track, or Alf to his followers,was a early comic book hero, he was full of British spunk when that phrase had no giggles or references to cream pies.
He epitomised the earthy working chap, who succeeded by sheer grit and determination.He beat a succession of greasy dagoe's and East European automaton's with names like Fidor Oranski, usually against all the odds.
Kids would gladly follow a hero like Alf anywhere. He died in a trench after losing both lungs and his splean in a mustard gas attack on the trench he shared with Ginger Miggins, and Chalky White by the Hun.
After his death, young lads volunteered in their droves to join the Army so that they too could suffer a similar end like that of their heroic working class chum. Suffice to say their wishes were truly granted.

Any road up, back on track ( Fnarr), What's the difference between a Blues fan and a jet engine?. the engine actually stops whining when it get's to Benidorm.

That is pretty good, Rozza (and Embers), but I still think he (ww) should walk it, give him the backbone all us WWFC fans need.
And at 15, ww should have enough energy to walk, even jog/run/cycle, from LE to JoG and still have a kick-about until the sun sets.

Warn, when I was a lad, in the 70s/80s, I used to go every where on my bike, and used to roam a plenty on foot. It's the current generation who've become lazy, and I largely blame the shitty 'culture' exported from the U S and A for this.

Going back to my old Nan and Grandads eras, there were tales of people swimming down the cut after work!

Wasn't there aggro after both those Blues cup games?

To be fair, there is still an undercurrent of football violence at most clubs, but given that you can go straight to jail, you're a fool to get involved in this day and age.

A couple of lads I know are still on trial for the last game against brum. Which happened before the game outside the wanderer. I know quite a few of the hooligans because there seem to be quite a few in the codsall area. Don't no why and most people wouldn't believe me. As u Say who would want to go to prison for a pointless fight. Oh well each to there own. Not for me.

Think I will just go on the train, with colours hidden. I have rode my bike to the training ground before, can remember clocking about 25mph on the ring road, fastest I have ever gone on the flat. Me and my mate performed a rolling road, he had a siren aswell, the funny thing is Im not even joking.

:lol:

Take your bike on the train. If any Brummies get unruly, you can throw it at them. Once they've recovered, you can speed off down Station Drive to The Molineux, tooting your horn. Simples.

Good call that Rozza. When I saw that comic picture, I knew it was Alf, but couldn't recall the details. Trying to remember if Alf had spikes or some home-made nails sticking through his boots or ran barefooted like that South African Zola Budd woman did. :?

Which comic did he feature in? I always used to get The Dandy and Beano Annuals as a kid. My favourite was Desperate Dan and his Cow Pies. :lol: Sad innit really, but we had fook all else, 2 TV channels with a test card most of the day and a spirograph coz I was LUCKY. :roll:

Mossie, Alf Tupper was in The Victor I believe. I always thought the comic page was Tupper of the track, apparently it was called The Tough Of The Track though?

Here's one for you football experts of a certain age, Alf's footballing equivalents were Roy of the Rovers, (read by the kids who's dinner money you would tax off them), I could never read such puffy bollocks. My preferred read was 'Nipper' who was readily coached by Baldy Hagan to footballing heights, all without the need to digitally penetrate him in the bath either!!
I cant remember what comic that was in, perhaps if someone could remind me by smacking me upside the head with a "Click'y Ba" ( :wink: , there's another un )
