    Milton Keynes - Eastbourne

    Thanks to all of you for the advice, much appreciated. Going to put my thinking cap on later on and work out the best plan (and look up where Normans Bay is :))

    Milton Keynes - Eastbourne

    Evening all, I’m looking to go from MKC - EBN and back on Saturday, arriving by 1330 and leaving Eastbourne about 1730. I am aware that there is a rail replacement bus between Lewes and Eastbourne so I'd rather go via Orpington and change at St Leonards Warrior Square. However, instead of the...

    Milton Keynes - Dorchester South

    Morning all, I’m looking to go from MKC - DCH and back tomorrow, arriving by 1300 and leaving Dorchester after 1730. I think that my cheapest option is to get a Travelcard (probably VTWC only) and then a BZ6-DCH off-peak return, is this correct? I don’t really want to go via Kensington Olympia...

    Agreed re: officals. Couldn't see whether Wells dived or not, but mystified how he didn't send off Danny Williams for raising a hand to one of your lads. However, he also missed a stonewall pen when we were 2-1 up and Vydra was poleaxed in the box, and if the lino had given the throw-in to us...

    Bullying? Hardly. Kid wins competition at 3rd Round match. Kid gets picked by FA to be Reading mascot for semi-final. Kid says he wants Arsenal to win in local paper. Reading fans ask why they don't have their own mascot, or at least someone who wants them to win (not unreasonable...

    Aggregate scores of the matches involving the teams I follow (Reading, Slough Town and Cowdenbeath): 0-17 :shock: Still, looking forward to a trip to Bradford for the FA Cup Quarter Final next weekend with Reading (not necessarily looking forward to the match at the moment though :))

    Charmed, I'm sure - Derby probably thought the same thing... :lol: Best possible draw for us, nothing to do with leagues, league positions or form, and a good diversion from a relegation battle...

    Yak's not match-fit yet I guess. I'll maybe see him at the weekend when we get humped by Derby in the FA Cup :) Which pubs did you go to? Three Guineas by the station has just been refurbed apparently, now owned by Fullers, lovely stuff. There is also a West Berkshire Brewery bar set up...

    Football

    The first half of that game was the worst half of football I have ever watched, Norwood's free kick clearing your empty lower tier behind the goal being the highlight. Still, thanks for your ringing endorsement of us :D

    Daniel Carrico, signed from Sporting Lisbon. Played 45 minutes in his first match, subbed at half-time, hasn't played since. One for next season in the Championship, so they say...

    Milton Keynes - Dalgety Bay Off Peak

    Long time viewer, occasional poster here, big fan of your collective work... I've got a business trip arranged to Scotland next week, and have a dilemma - train or plane? I prefer the train and it looks like it's cheaper, but I need to check some things:- - if I travel up Monday 28th, and...
