Vital Pompey Wembley meet?

Vital Pompey Wembley meet?

A question has been raised by sneakay, so basically this is being thrown to you fellas, suggestions are being invited and we will see where it takes us...

Well, sneakay asked: 'have people started booking their train tickets then? What's the plan? I really want to meet up with a number of you guys from Vital - putting faces to names would be good. Can we have something written about the plans Rug?'

You asked, you have got, and in fact half of this question was answered to me before I even had to think about it! The Sunday Toast team led by eastneydave have produced a special 'weekday snack toast' feature which gives some insight into the do's and don't of travelling to Wembley, as well as linking to the Pompey Site for further information, so to see this click here - it is worth a read fellas, and will prove helpful!

As far as a Vital Pompey special 'Wembley meet and greet' goes, as said this is where you all come in... Those of you that would maybe like to meet up with some of your fellow site members, as sneakay suggests, I urge to simply throw some ideas out there, make some comments below, interact and we will see what we can sort out?

If no one makes any suggestions then there is no chance of this happening is there, so do not be afraid just 'say what you think'. If something could be arranged from these thoughts, for example enough agree on something, I will publish something a bit near the time reminding people where and when - so fire away...

Thanks Rug - Faster than a speeding bullet! Well as I have mentioned before i live in Surrey - no that doesn't make me a Manure supporter! I will be jumping on the train at Farnborough probably coz it seems to be faster. Would love to meet up either on the train or in a pub in London. What time is everyone heading up there? I think I should read the week day snack toast as suggested!

Nice thought but 80,000 people in a very small area, probably in an unfamiliar to the majority should be interesting. The stupid early kick off means leaving Pompey 6-7am for the majority. I am on a 17 seater mini bus with a bunch who I normally go with. Parking will be fun! Meeting after the victory may make more sense.

Sneakay; the habitual London Haunt is (used to be) The Hole in the Wall at Waterloo; based on current timings we'll be there from about 7.30 am!!

Not for the first time I have to agree with Matt. We do not know the pubs or the area so it will be difficult. Of course with a 12:15 kick off there will not be much time for a drink before hand. After perhaps - back in Pompey even better but of course we do not all live in the City.

As you will be aware i live in a port in the west country, howeer i will be travelling up to my dads in Overton- a village between Andover and Basingstoke-on Friday night and then either driving to Twickenham and park at my mates,or catching the train from Boozingstoke and meeting some old school friends on board. I dont think that there will much time for a pint before especially as it will take along time actually getting in the ground with ques etc , so i suggest meeting with a can or two before at Waterloo and traveling across on the tube together, or/and meeting in a city centre pub after the game.

We are setting off from Liverpool at 0600 and planning to get to the Weatherspoons at Wembley Central Station sometime around 11 o'clock.

Nice to hear you're with us Graham. I'm certainly up for a small drink at Waterloo
