Who would have thought that with the third game of the season arriving rapidly, Albion would be travelling to Birmingham with a big fat zero in the points bag.
With the importance of this game already clear, a strong contingent of Seagulls fans i'm sure will be there to back their boys to the hilt.
If you are one of those travellers here are some tips and times that you may find helpful.
If you are going by train, the nearest station to St. Andrews is Birmingham Moor Green, you will need to change at Birmingham New street if you go from Euston but not if from Marylebone to get there; it's a 20 minute walk from Moor Green.
But these buses go to St.Andrews if you want to save your feet:
57, 57A, 58, 60, 900, 97, 97A.
Train times from London, I will assume you know how to get there ;), are;
Euston to Birmingham New Street - 10-03, arrives 11-44
Marylebone to Birmingham Moor Street 10-06, arrives 11-53
Euston to Birmingham New Street 10-23, arrives 12-02
Marylebone to Birmingham Moor Street 10-36, arrives 12-33
Euston to Birmingham New Street 10-43, arrives 12-25
Birmingham Moor Street to Euston 18-33, arrives 20-14
Birmingham Moor Street to Euston 18-37, arrives 21-09
Birmingham Moor Street to Marylebone 18-45, arrives 20-45
Birmingham Moor Street to Euston 18-53, arrives 20-55
Birmingham Moor Street to Euston 18-57, arrives 21-45
Going by car?
Parking at the stadium itself is very limited, but a secure outdoor car park is available at Birmingham Wheels Park, less than 15 minutes walk away, and parking is also permitted in the streets surrounding the ground although you'll need to arrive 90 minutes or so before to guarantee a good spot.
Away fans are housed in the Gil Merrick stand which is situated behind one of the goals and has good views.
If you fancy a beer or two before the game, it is advisable to do so in the main city centre as pubs closer to the ground are pretty much staunch Birmingham and the welcome would probably not be hearty and cheery!!
Albion have been allocated 1500 tickets and if you now fancy a trip to the midlands you need to book by phone on 0844 327 1901
Well I hope that this has helped and hope that everyone going gets to see the REAL Albion, not the shadow of a team that we have seen so far.
