I am bored *hitless of the never ending diet of the TV picking MU & Liverpool games. The game this time with Liverpool playing Lincoln or Mansfield is understandable but WHU v MU is like any bog standard weekend league game.

I would rather watch L*ton get smacked or even Harrogate/Hastings than what is being served up.

I got 3 tickets at £46.50 each but I'll be in Manchester before some have even got out of bed! Leave at 06.51!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!

I might be too hammered to even watch the game!!!!

Also coming back a bit later at 20.35.

One bonus is that we don't need to change on either journey!
