PostSubject: EDF Cup Final Day Out   Wed Mar 05, 2008 6:55 pm

A few of us have been discussing a day/night out before the start of the season.

Sat 12th April is the EDF Cup Final at Twickenham.

Saints are in the semi-finals against Plymouth who they should hopefully beat. Were thinking of organising a trip down to London for the day to watch the Final and then do a tour of the pubs..... drunken

Cup Final Tickets are available at 30
Return Train is available at 19.50 leave at 8am - last train home.

So just under 50 for the day. (if we get more than 10 people we get a discount on Final Tickets, not sure how much yet)

Could maybe stay over for the night if enough people want to??

Need to know numbers who are interested asap as cheap train tickets will sell out as will the rugby tickets.

seems a very sensible idea. it is important for northampton fans to have the opportunity to watch some Premiership(or Magners League) rugby.

How is divison 1 treating you at those lovely away days- London Welsh, Esher, Moseley....

Before u comment, no Bath will not be playing in this final. It's the Carling Cup of Rugby....unless u are not a prem side

lol!

Kettering will be winning the league title away at Southport that day... Should we champions before then, then that's a top idea.

Especially as I can get to London and back on the train for just a fiver!

Oi Bilson. What have Saints and Liverpool got in common ? Both been Champions of Europe this Millenium. Can Bath or any of the myriad of football teams u support say that ? Stop being a Paul Eaton or I will say that God doesn't exist

lol!

althought another thing saints and liverpool have in common- they both chuck ridiculous sums of money at players who are not of sufficient quality for their overstated ambitions and thus underachieve(or find their natural level).

The names of spencer, kuyt, benayoun....spring to mind.

also at least both my teams have a chance of winning the league and european trophies this season.

Benayoun cost 6m pounds ! The renovations to your dads new drawing room cost less than that

6m he may have cost...but he's still not title winning standard(or if he is, it says somehting about the premier league)

other great names such as Cisse(14m!!- tho i realise Houllier signed him and left before he arrived)
Morientes(6.3m)
Josemi(only 2m but shocking player)

i realise this is on the wrong website section, should be on football news.

Bit harsh young Bilson adding Morientes to your short list.

His record in Spain and in France was excellent before Rafa signed him.
How was Rafa to know he would struggle in England ???

I can totally agree with your shout of Dirk Shite , sorry Kuyt.
However Benayoun ??? 6m in todays football is nt that bad for a player who has the potential to come off the bench and actually make something happen.

on reflection chooker you may be right. for 6m(in todays game not a huge amount) benayoun may not be throwing money away. wat i meant to say was that he isn't a key player. but maybe i was a little harsh in calling him a waste of money.

glad you agree about dirk. didn't he cost about 10m. how?? according to wikipedia, kuyt is a striker known for his workrate. just as well, if he was known for his ability we wouldn't have heard of him.

my only comment about liverpool is, take out gerrard and torres and they look very average, not better than your Villa's, Toffees and Spurs. I realise u could say the same about rooney and ronaldo, fabregas and hleb(or adebayor) or drogba and lampard, but it seems liverpools squad is especially short of top quality players to challenge for prem. although torres does look supreme.

Anyone else up for the rugby and a night out?

Have found Family room at Travel lodge in City Road (central london) for 82 - 20 each which is great for London. Ideally we need 8 people to get 2 rooms. After a days session and a night on the tiles all we need is a place to put our heads down....

So far

Courty
George
Bolar
Chris Harrison
Riedy
Shaun

Found Party Pack (ticket plus food/beer voucher) for 27.40 each so hotel plus rugby will be 50 roughly which is pretty good for a day out in London. Need to book train fares which will be about 20 if we book asap. Obviously the longer we wait the more pricey it gets........

Jim will be down there with work. Anyone else? Need to know asap.......

It might be a better idea if Jolene did us all a packed lunch.

Tickets are booked:

Following people are going to Twickenham:

COURTY
REIDY
BOLAR
GEORGE
WILL
CHRIS HARRISON
SHAUN WILLS
WHAMMO

Anyone else wants to go will have to sort out their own tickets as everyone has had plenty of notice........

Really could do with ticket money asap lads.......

So who is up for staying down the night? At the moment I'm assuming all of us are? Gonna need confirmation asap so I can try and book a hotel at a decent rate. Will find out train cost also. Need that money asap when I let you all know as I'm running low on cash.......

Northampton - London ticket prices are generally much lower, and the services are more frequent. Looking at the number of people going the potential saving could be much greater than the 5 it would cost to leave one car in the car park. Might be worth looking into ?

I just worry a bit that all the cricket club haven't been made aware of the opportunity to go to Twickenham, so in the spirit of all those council leaflets in Bengali, I would like to offer this as a public service.

LO perkins. d cricket club iz plnin a trip 2 d rugby @ twickenham on d 12th april. f U wnt 2 go lt courty knO az s%n az posebL, preferably n eng

Return from KETTERING is 32

which also includes 1st Class travel on the way down (same price as standard at the moment)

Prob a few quid cheaper for those getting on at Wellingborough.

Return from Northampton is 25

I'd personally rather go from Kettering as I would like a first class seat on the way down (prob get a cup of tea or something?), I can imaging the Northampton trains will be packed with Saints supporters and we'll have to stand for an hour....?

What is the general opinion?

It'd better be PG Tips for 7 ! Any idea what whammo is doing ? Northampton might be easier for him. Price from Wellingborough also 33. Can Shorty get us a quote on a taxi ?

To be honest if its easier for you and Whammo to go from Northampton then its not really a problem, we can meet up when we get down in London.....

I believe people in London stopped "getting down" in the mid 1980s
