    Charlton Athletic were running a reportedly brilliant and cheap network of buses from all over Kent, as well as part of Sussex to their home games though this may not be the case at present

    Took in Dortmund v Hamburg recently with my son. Our match tickets entitled us to free public transport to the stadium. Not sure our privately (shareholder) owned transport companies will go for this somehow!!

    First, it’s the FSF that’s involved, not the no-longer existent FSA in the first line. But mainly, there is an inference that the Magpie Mover is available the year round but it’s not, it only applies on match days. And the writer, if a true Sunderland supporter, should have known that Sunderland have a similar “Wear on our Way” travel pass at the same price and with the same eligibility.

    In some cases, clubs could do with mentioning the nearest railway station. When my club (Leeds) played at Birmingham in the FA Cup in January the ticket came with a lttle booklet which detailed all the transport options. In itself this was useful and very laudable, but it made no mention of Bordeseley railway station, where trains on the Snow Hill line make extra stops on matchdays. It is only 10 minutes walk from St.Andrews, compared with up to 2 miles to the various central Birmingham stations.
