I’m sure there will be buyers!
The Irish lads can come to Manchester without a test, but if they want to get back home, they need Travel PCR.
Don’t imagine it will be worth the hassle.

Just posting again that I have a great pair for Young Boys available as I'll still be isolating and can't make it. Halfway line up on Tier 3 of Sir Alex stand, Row 1.

I have a ticket for parking for sale. It is for the home game v Brighton on Saturday 18th December and is in the N2 East Car Park. Paid £12, looking for £10 back if anyone needs / wants?

Anyone who knows the NW a lot better than me, how feasible would the below be....

Utd v Brighton is a 12.30 kick off, and my other boys Wycombe play Bolton away at 3pm.
If I parked in the NW car park, got to the car say 5mins before full time, can you get onto the main road decently? Are the main roads clogged generally, being a Saturday, let alone outside a huge ground with people leaving early etc?
The rough timings look doable, but we all know the "actual" situation, especially around a match day and a Saturday could be a lot different.

Not massively considering it, but just thought I'd ask the question as it's not often the 2 "could" tie up so well.

Pair of tickets available for young boys tomorrow night. East Stand, Tier 2, pretty low down, right by the exits (perfect for a quick getaway which has been much needed up until the other week). :D

£80 for the pair.

Not sure where to ask this and can’t yet post in the general forum so throwing this here:

Best hotels/places to live near OT? Coming for the Brighton game.

Also for my British friends, any rumours of nightclubs/bars getting shutdown/restricted across the pond any time soon? Or does it look like if you’re vaxxed you should be fine? Whats the rhetoric like?

Thanks !

Doable I reckon if you park near Trafford wharf road and leave early. Jump on M602 at Eccles. It will be busy though with Trafford centre traffic adding to the madness.

Thanks pal.
I think it's probably a mad idea, as I'd have driven 3hours to the United game, smashing £50 for the ticket, so to purposely leave early, and have that nervy feeling about needing to, and then Christmas/United and Bolton traffic all having to be kind, is just silly.

Would have been different if it was say Altrincham away, somewhere I'd need to pass on the way home anyway. But not out the other way.

I live nearby the Macron Stadium, typically when i leave Old Trafford it takes just over an hour to get home, thats leaving the stadium at FT walking 10 - 15 mins to the car etc. Given that the traffic round Trafford Park will be heavier with the Chritmas shoppers I would add a bit more time on this. Hope this helps.

Hi Guys, im new to the Cafe. Been trying to get tickets all season, but the ticket website doenst give any notifications on availability anymore. Me and my son have only managed to get tickets to the Everton match so far. All the games now say sold out, without the note about further releases. Im trying to get tickets for the Brighton home match for us both, 1 Adult, 1 under 16. We are both members.
Anyone any idea if Brighton tickets might come back on sale in the coming days? ive tried the ticket office but they just say keep an eye on the website.
thanks guys.

The way the traffic has been this season I would say you haven’t got a prayer of making it!

Yep, ta chaps, needed someone to say "don't be stupid" :D

The beauty of the 12.30 kick offs is you can do it up and down in 1 day and still be home at reasonable o clock.
(Well, as long as I don't take a 40min detour round Walsall this time, as the m6 was closed at one junction, and I was too tight to pay for the toll...even though I ended up still paying for it, having wasted an hour to end up in the same place :D )

It's doable but you'd need to probably miss the first 10-15 minutes of the other game unless we are comfortably ahead and you're happy leaving early.

For reference, my other lot were playing at Warrington a couple of years ago in the FA Trophy and I left OT at full time from a 12:30 and got to the other game for about 15:15 give or take.

Have you been this season yet? You're in for a right treat :lol:

The last 12:30 kick off we had I didn't get home until 6:30pm and I only live 60 miles away. It''s absolutely mental.

There'll be a couple more chances yet mate I'm sure. No notifications any more from the club so turn notifications on for this page instead, normally someone will give a heads up when tickets go on sale on the website

Yeah that madness I mentioned was Thursday's game, and coming home on the Friday.
The drive up felt pretty decent, except for the Manchester road between Altrincham and Sale, that took about 40mins, but I'd normally come off at Altrincham for the tram.

But the M6 has felt a bit better this season to be honest, no 50 zones. A few bits and pieces of 60s only?
It was just some major accident had shut a whole junction both ways, and I idiotically actually came off the M6 toll to go into the bit that was shut :D
Meaning trudging along some back water roads, trying to ignore the sat nav saying "get on the M6 toll you clown".

Peak low point was when i clicked "Ignore motorways and tolls" and it gave me about a 6 hour route...from Birmingham to Wycombe (100 miles!)

Yeah the M6 has been loads better by its standards to be fair, it's just getting to the M6 that's now the problem. Either sit for hours on the Chester road to try get through Altrincham or sit for hours on the M56. Thursday absolutely ruined me, I've been ill since as I didn't get home until 2am and had to be at work for 6. It honestly put me off going again for a bit. They just cannot leave the roads alone yet there is never any twat actually working on them.

Try parking the other side of OT, I tend to park on an estate between the Quays and the M602 and if anything it's been better than last year at times because the Trafford Road bottleneck is behind where you get on. Can't speak for the M6 though as I avoid it like the plague.

Can you get to there near jct 21 off the M6? It's a decent shout I think if so, the M6 is loads better now, I actually look forward to getting on it which sounds crazy.

Yeah, go past 21 up to 21a and down the M62. M62 becomes the M602 and takes you straight to the roundabout top of Trafford Road.
