Review by Southampton fan Mark
Why did you choose to go to this game and why were you looking forward to it?
Chose the game because it was only an hour drive from home and never been to Vicarage Road before.
How did you travel to the game and how easy was it?
By car. Very simple to get to the ring road and close to the stadium but roads are at a standstill next to the ground.
If you drove, was it easy to find car parking and make your way to the stadium?
We parked in the Premier Inn car park – a 10/15 minute walk.
Which pubs did you go to before the game and what was the atmosphere like?
We didn’t and wished we did – there is no alcohol sold to away fans inside the ground – a beginners error!
Where did you eat on your away day and was it good value?
Outside the ground there is a busy chippy, though we ate right outside the away fans entrance where there was a burger van.
What did you think of the food and drink available inside the ground?
No alcohol for away fans – just had some coffees and coca-colas. At least you were allowed to keep the lid.
What did you think of the away end and your view of the game?
View was good. The seat numbering is unusual because we got EE expecting to be half way up but we were two rows from the front. Generous allocation (10% of capacity) for away fans. I liked being on the end rather than the side.
What was the atmosphere like during the match?
Good away support. You’re put next to what seems like the family stand so the fan ‘banter’ is a bit limited.
How friendly were the home fans out of 10?
10/10 – had a chat with a few on the way to the ground while wearing the Saints scarf.
How easy did you find it to get away from the stadium after the game?
Got stuck for half an hour getting on the main route out to the motorway – but that’s to be expected.
How much did you spend in total on this away day? Was it good value for money?
Four tickets – adults £30 each. £5 each on burgers. Parking £5. Good value for an away win!
Would you recommend this away day to other fans?
Yes – pleasant ground. Good view.
