    Okay. So what about the route for the open bus tour? Where does that start and finish and does it go anywhere near the flats on Radford Road?

    I'm going to park at Watford and get the train, or book the Travelodge Wembley hotel once our semi final place has been confirmed

    so I noticed our pest landlords are top of their league (about as far as they can go in Rugby) and we are heading to the checkatrade final ( a poxy cup for 3rd and 4th division teams)
    Our owners, Council and city of culture should note which would generate the bigger interest across the city

    Lets be honest if we had a stadium filling competition we'd piss it.

    In all seriousness if it happens or if anyone's ever going there for another reason (I do feel for you!) Stanmore or Canons Park are always good. All day parking is a fiver midweek or 2 quid at the weekend. Both off J4 of the M1. They're number 1 and 2 on the Jubilee so easy for heading into London or straight to Wembley. If you're coming from the City don't go via Wembley Way from Wembley Park. Get the Bakerloo or Overground and get off at Wembley Central. Much easier for pubs and food & a lot less crowded.

    Also for ease of leaving the stadium the lower (blocks starting with 1) is obviously much better. It's taken me half an hour before from the upper tier (blocks starting with 5) to get to the stadium exit. You've also then got the possible 30-40 minute wait for the Tube as you'll be at the back of the queue. Well worth paying the extra! For evening games I normally get to Euston or Kings Cross anything between 10:30 and 11 and I normally sit in the lower.

    Start walking Otis and save the car park fee. You walk to home games don't you? Superstitions, match day routines and all that.

    We will indeed and it will be an equal situation.

    Wasps will be on the top deck and our lot will be sitting downstairs and waving to the crowds from there.
