    2 hour driveup, 2 hours back. Not even taken into account the rubbish I watched inbetween. I could have read a book, taken a leisurely stroll, maybe go out and enjoy some of the culture that Bristol has to offer. But no, instead I have to sit on the M5 on the way to scream so hard at a bunch of pansies that I almost pop a vein in my head.


    Can anyone beat that? If so I bow down to your superior appetite for frustration.


    I'm off to bed. Of course if I was Wolves at this point I'd really take my time about first visiting the lounge, kitchen, lounge, bathroom, lounge then the kitchen again and then make a punt for the bedroom only to miss the bed and end up sleeping on the floor.

    Dont worry, it will all be different on Saturday, our manager (who's
    the best we've had in 20 years or something) will see what we've been
    doing wrong and learn from his mistakes and play a system that works in
    this division, and the Preston game definately wont be a repeat of the
    last 4 home games.... [​IMG]

    I spent 4 hours on the train to do the same, spending £15 for the
    privelage, and if I didn't have a student railcard, it would have been
    £24[​IMG]

    Let me know how it goes. I'll be taking in the vistas of sunny Bristol.


    The trouble is I won't. Saturday morning will come and I'll get into the car like clockwork, listening to the missus moan about how she'd rather be shopping rather than watch that drivel.

    Hmmm not bad. You do get to sleep on the train though so you still have it easier.


    I used to live in the same town as you - used to be nice and easy in the car.

    On nights - in bed 0700 up 1130.


    Left home at 1630 with the nipper and took him to see grandad wolvo before the game.


    then [​IMG]the match [​IMG]


    Left at 2200 and listened to the no marks on the Wolf until I lost reception around Stafford. Home for 2345 and at work for 0015.


    0445 at work p***ed off and ****ged out !!!!

    I share your frustrations xbomber, there's been far too many of these journeys in the last few years.


    But my mate dragged me down Ashton Gate the other day and its a soothing experience to say the least. Not the best football sh1te support, carp ground etc...... so never forget


    WE ARE WOLVES

    I hope the club reads these stories before issuing any comments about fan loyalty or commitment, you really can't ask for any more commitment than some of you show.

    4 hour trip up, 3.5 hours back. Every home game. Live on the South Coast in Sussex. Home at 1.22am last night - and that was a good journey. 420 mile trip - including 80 miles of non motorway! Last night I was seriously considering why on earth I bother! It seems more and more often I am feeling the same way!


    Mind you, we all know why we go again - to me this club is my passion, and no matter how I feel, you always find yourself dragged back again no matter what, cause once its in your blood that's it.
     
  13. I was in a foul strop yesterday. I used to just get them when we lost, now it seems I get them when we draw too. I'm not sure why, but it seems to be getting to me more these days.


    Or maybeI'm just becoming a miserableold bag through life in general. [​IMG]

    No, I follow my local club that requires a short 25 min ride on the bus so I can get p*ssed up.

    xbomber, a round trip for my mates and me for a home game ranges between 5-8 hours traffic depending and we will still be there this weekend.Many away games are even longer journeys.
     
  16. What about Clayton Wolf? Your efforts all pale into insignificance compared to the distance he travels to matches.

    Nah, got two happy with those thanks, but no-one impressed at how far you travel to games, follow your local club or move back home if you don't like it.
     
  20. What if you get offered a job in another town, but don't want to support a different club?

    Don't take the job!


    This is the midlands there are jobs for all sorts without moving. Unless your in the Army/Navy[​IMG]. Then it's your choice to move, so SHUT UP whining about the travelling

    SNAP XBomber, We came from Nottingham through heavy rush hour traffic and got to Wolves late - just after kick off [​IMG]We had problems finding a parking space but we were so wound up that we turned around and went home - then we heard Miller had scored and still went home! [​IMG]Now glad we did!
     
  23. this has really got your goat the last two days hasn't it, IMAB?

    Has it?


    It's always a daft thing to say though, and it's used on this board as a sign of how great a fan you are.


    I'll repeat no-one cares how far you travel it's your choice to move away/not follow your local side

    "I'd like to present the award for fan/bullsh*tter of the year to......"





    you are either lying to make a point, or you are a pillock.





    This award is presented in assocoation with BP - Encouraging people to drive miles for no reason; and greenpeace.
     
  27. That's silly. So you're saying, hypothetically, that you'd turn down the job of your dreams and the chance of a lifetime (or ask your spouse to do so, on pain of separation) because it might take you an hour or so further away from your football club?


    ur such a gr8 supporta. i wish i was u.
     

  28. I agree with you completely. The fact that I have to travel up from the London area is based upon the fact that I chose employment in London. It has benefits, but convenience for Molineux cannot be listed among them.


    As I made it difficult for myself to get there I can't see why I should campaign for gold stars each time I get through the entrance.

    No I took the job of my dreams and saw 5 matches in 8 years, difference is I wasn't bitching about it.


    Edit: On reflection it's probably the only thing I didn't bitch about while I was in the ArmyEdited by: IMAB
     
  30. Oh, I was confused by the whole 'Don't take the job' comment.

    IMAB- Never said I don't like it, just sympathised with the guy.


    And you know as well as I do, that you never change your alliegence to a football club.


    Unfortunately if your born in Wolvo you support Wolves, or to my mind thats how it should be!



    And you must admit that one of the best songs ever heard at The Mol recently was the 'Live round the corner' sung to Manure

    Gosh, sorry about saying how far I have to go!


    I dont want brownie points or medals, someone just asked if I could beat a 2 hour drive! It is MY fault I liveso far away from theground- although I did move back to Wolverhampton last year to be nearer the ground (and I got a job at a VERY well known radio station)! But that's another story, and I'm back in Sussex now!


    IMO whether you're 10 mins walk or 10 hours flight, we're all still Wolves fans. Calm down!!!
     
  36. Why not, IMAB? Complaining's fun. [​IMG]


    I live about 20mins walk away, but I may as well say this now. I trod in a jolly deep puddle about half-way home, and traipsing the rest of the way with a soggy sock and afreezing foot did nothing to improve my mood. Also I was quite peckish by that time.


    I don't want a medal, though. It would probably only make my bum look big.Edited by: Hammy

    Could be worse - I could be moaning about marrying aalbionbird...


    Anyway - if you don't like it then don't post on the thread. I reserve the right to moan as much as I like[​IMG]
