Review by Chelsea fan Richard Pigden
Why did you choose to go to this game and why were you looking forward to it?
I am a Chelsea season ticket holder and this was the first game of the season and I’ve enjoyed previous visits to Huddersfield.
How did you travel to the game and how easy was it?
Official club coach, we were quite badly delayed by known roadworks and an accident on the alternative route.
Where did you eat on your away day and was it good value?
We had intended to return to the Chilli Lounge, which is a curry house we went to last year but did not have time after the traffic problems. Last year it was good value.
What did you think of the food and drink available inside the ground?
The choice was average so was the quality. Fairly expensive for what it was.
What did you think of the away end and your view of the game?
The away end was good. Decent view as long as you are not too close to the front and I like sharing an end with home fans.
What was the atmosphere like during the match?
Atmosphere was good especially considering the eventual result. Again sharing an end with the vocal home fans helps.
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 local police helped get the coaches away pretty quickly and the traffic was not too bad.
How much did you spend in total on this away day? Was it good value for money?
£60/£70. Chelsea’s coach travel is £10 per match which is exceptional value. The £30 max ticket price helps as well.
Would you recommend this away day to other fans?
Is there anything else you want to tell other away fans about your day?
Huddersfield are one of a few clubs who have moved to a new ground and managed to retain some character, I really enjoy going there.
