Hi, I'm wondering if anyone can help. When there is a football game on at Anfield in Liverpool I normally go via car from my home in Cheshire (takes 30minutes) but I'm currently working just outside Uttoxeter (Staffordshire) around 10minutes away from that train station. (Others near that I know of are Blythe Bride, Stafford, Stoke, Crewe). As I finish work around 4:00-4:30pm trying to be at Anfield for around 7pm to meet friends for a 7:45pm game is proving difficult and stressful at rush hour on the A50/A500/M6/M62 so I've been trying to work out the options on the trains. Note: Lime Street to Anfield is only 15minutes via taxi and they are regular. From what I can see my options are as follows but hoping someone can suggest alternatives or point out the good/bad ideas. In terms of the return anytime around 11pm or 11:30 leaving Lime Street is fine. Anything before 11pm is likely just a bit too early. Stafford: Drive from work to Stafford station would take around 40minutes in traffic and less chance of getting stuck that anywhere else. Direct trains from Stafford to Lime Street at 17:23 (arrives 18:21), 17:36 (arrives 18:44) and 18:10 (arrives 19:16 which is a bit late). This seems OK but the return journey the last train from Lime Street is 21:34 which is of no use which I think rules this out unless anyone sees an option. Crewe: Driving to Crewe takes around 1 hour (but potential to be held up) so I would be looking at: 17:32 direct to Lime Street - arrives 18:11 Or 17:43 (arrives 18:21) , 17:57 (arrives 18:44) or lastly the 18:32 which arrives 19:16 but slightly too late. Return - 22:34 probably too early but the 23:34 to Crewe arriving at 00:23 works for me. Any other options or better options for me to look at? Thanks in advance. Rich.
