Review by Plymouth Argyle fan Sam Couling
Why did you choose to go to this game and why were you looking forward to it?
Charlton have a good stadium and London games are easy to get to. I was looking forward to it because the green army had filled the away end.
How did you travel to the game and how easy was it?
I got a train to Paddington then a couple of over ground trains to The Valley. Very easy to get to and fairly cheap.
If you got the train, how easy did you find it to make your way to the stadium from the station?
The stadium is just around the corner. Only a 5 min walk!
Which pubs did you go to before the game and what was the atmosphere like?
I went to the Anchor and Hope which is on the bank of the Thames, the atmosphere was quality, fans were constantly singing.
What did you think of the food and drink available inside the ground?
Food and drink was fairly standard, nothing special.
What did you think of the away end and your view of the game?
Good view and the away end is decent, but a bit crowded in the queues.
What was the atmosphere like during the match?
The home fans were silent until they scored. Away fans sang for most of the first half.
How friendly were the home fans out of 10?
How easy did you find it to get away from the stadium after the game?
The train station was packed but once on the train all was fine.
How much did you spend in total on this away day? Was it good value for money?
Around £200 in total.
Would you recommend this away day to other fans?
Yeah, it’s a nice day out even if your team loses.
