Well..., I'll be dashing off after serving breakfasts here and hope to hit
the M6 about 10.30 a.m. My son-in-law is driving and we are both looking
forward to seeing the 'new' Wembley. He is over from Switzerland and
thrilled too - though he is a bit apprehensive and quizzical that I have got
us two Frenchman outfits (stripey top,beret,scarf & tash) to wear. He will
also be carrying a string of onions around his neck,bless 'im, while I'll be
in a wheelchair with the french sticks - so keep an eye out for us! It's his
first CCF so he's in for a treat.I read that the first time Saints wore the
red 'V' was in '61 against Wigan,which was my very first trip to Wembley.

Enjoy all!

Gutted that I couldn't go today after following the final all over the
country for the past 10 years. So had to make do with the Beeb's
presentation. On TV there seemed to be almost no atmosphere at Wembley.
Was it really that quiet or was it just the Beeb's presentation?

Not a lot - think the French performed far better than most people expected,
but Saints were just too strong in the end.

Probably both, Arthur !

I don`t think the game lived up to expectations, and Saints were
made to work hard for the win, nothing flamboyant or worth
remembering about there.

Certainly in the first half there was only a nervousness from
Saints fans and players as it became obvious it was to be
no picnic in the park.

Not sure how much noise was generated in the Saints end,
could only hear the shouts of "Come on you Catalans"
from the Wiganers and Yorkshiremen behind me.

Noticable though that when it became obvious Saints would
win, the crowd were so engrossed by play that they resorted
to several Mexican waves!

First impression of the new Wembley though, when we
emerged from the tube station to see the Wembley arch in
full glory, and Wembley Way packed with red and white
was AWESOME

Fantastic build up to the day, but we felt the game itself
was a bit of a disappointment

But hey....WE WON

:-)

I agree with the view on exiting Wembley Park station, looking straight
at the arch made me rather e***d, although instead of heading
straight, I was strangely drawn to the open air bar to the right for the
  next hour - well, my daughter was dying for a coke!!!!!

Obviously not seen it on tv, thought the atmosphere was fine in the
Saints end, especially in the 2nd half. I enjoyed it, although it wasn't
a great game.
Goodnight!

Dee

Very quiet today with a lack of big-game 'atmosphere' in the ground.
Agree with Gordon  -  stadium very impressive, maybe more so from the
outside than inside.

Still we got the result in the end.

Journey home dire due to pile-up on the M6.

"Dire" is a euphemism !

I got so worried by the "M6 closed" notices, that I came off at
junction 13 and spent what seemed like days in the wilds of
Shropshire, and bottle-neck Stafford.

Yet my nect door neighbour ignored the signs and was home at 9pm

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
