Just thought I would quickly pop on line to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.
For me it is that lull between the morning presents stuff and the afternoon / evening eating a drinking.
Tomorrow we play West Ham. Remember to check your train journeys.
It is a Bank Holiday, so TfL will be running a reduced service. There are also plenty of National Rail suspensions due to engineering works.
We might moan “why do they work over Christmas when so many want to travel”, but the fact is with no commuters, numbers using the service drops dramatically.
Elizabeth Line is completely closed (for those coming from Essex). Also plenty of suspensions across the London Overground. East Anglia, South Eastern, Southern, South Western, Northern or Stansted Express.
Basically, unless you live on a London Underground route, you will have to drive. And please, if you are driving, there is no need to have a drink. 18 other games you can get battered at. You can have 1 game off!
Enjoy the festivities today. And get ready for football to return tomorrow!
