Ok... so a few of us are reluctant to sit on a coach for 7 hours each way and Ian's idea of of a plane looks waaay too expensive.
Does anyone fancy looking at Driving/train on the Friday, staying in a cheap B&B or Motel with....and here's the good bit - plenty of beers and curry in the evening!
Sorry Greggors, unless you get injured tomorrow, we cant include you.

Hold on a mo...<p>I didn't suggest the plane, I was meerly following up on others suggestions.<p>I am sorry the cost is so high, but if we had 100 flying then the price would be half the quoted prices, but then would we saell 100 places - I doubt it.

If you book the train far enough in advance the price is reasonably cheap. I have booked first class and it is only £50 - I think there are special rates if you book 7 days in advance.<p>Train times for those who need them are:<p>Euston to Wigan 9.45am arrives at 13.17pm<p>Wigan to euston either at 17.30 or 18.30

There's a group of us driving up on Saturday morning. Early start, full English on the motorway and arrive in time for a few pints before the game.<p>Watch Canvey pull off the biggest shock since Port Vale (I can dream) and then into town to watch Ian get rat-arsed before a Ruby and a good night's kip in the local Travel Inn.<p>Leisurely drive home on Sunday morning, just in time for Mrs Merv to serve up a late Sunday roast with a bottle of Beaujolais.<p>It's a tough job, but someone's got to do it!<p>Merv

Possible Pub for Pre-match scoops at the Wigan game. (Recommended by a matey who lives there).<p>It's called the Swan and Railway, in Wallgate opposite Wigan North Western
station. If you have plenty of time and are feeling more adventurous, the
John Bull is also a good pub but much harder to find. Walk up the hill
towards the centre from WNW station, keep walking straight on
(pedestrianised) and it's down a side alley on your right after about 500
yards. Or ask a local.

Just past that go up a side alley called "The Weind" The JB is up there. If you get lost ask for "The Weind"<p>About 2/3 mins walk from the station.<p>[ 10 November 2001: This message was edited by: KG Wigan Latic ]</p>

If you catch the train to find the JJB Stadium either catch the bus outside the station ask for "The Saddle Junction". Only 2-3 stops from the Station.<p>Or walk turning left crossing the road at some point and keep going past Wigan Pier till you see an Asda store on your right (About 5-10mins walk). Turn right there and the JJB is at the back of that store.<p>Just keep following the dual carraigeway straight forward turning left out of the station and you shouldn't get lost <img src="graemlins/zwinkerzwinker.gif" border="0" alt="[zwinkerzwinker]" /> .
