All very nice of them to let us know that the trains & Tube running with no disruption. Thank you.
However it would have been useful to let us know that the M1 was completely shut northbound between junctions 16 to 18.
Was anyone else driving round tiny Northamptonshire villages at midnight last night then?
In reply to David Airey:
David AireyWas that not planned? I guess most people would have seen the warnings when going southbound.
What warnings when travelling south bound?
Fully expected some closures / road works / delays whilst someone puts cones out as this is always the case on match days
When checking for road works it's really useful that 2 lots of closures were marked as "possible"
Luckily saw sign whilst travelling North and managed to plan own route rather than follow a detour as "everyone" will be on the detour
This was the case and detour followers were travelling very slowly whilst we weren't delayed much really
All that was possible as there were passengers in the car that could sort routes out. Would have been a bit different had there been no passengers
Home at 2am after 1 comfort stop & a drop off

Christopher HewittMaybe the travel chaos started AFTER the game finished?? Would you like the FA to phone every one of the 67,000 IF there is any travel problems anywhere in the U.K. over two hours AFTER a night game???
It appeared to be a planned roadworks issue.
Travelling southbound to the match there were (obviously) no warnings.
I'm not saying that everyone needs their backside wiped by Wembley personnel. I appreciate the travel updates but they appear to be for people who live in London & have multiple options to get home.
However, for an attendance of ~70000, if only 25% are heading north - equal split of directions - most will be on the road (train options limited / zero), so ~15000 trying to change a route is a lot of disruption. Reading a map / change satnav on the move on your own not easy.
One bonus - there's some lovely villages near Northampton. However, on Monday night they appeared to be chock full of traffic.

Christopher HewittYou've contradicted yourself
Have I? Where? I've read through it twice. If I have, then no problem. Just a bit miffed about the later than usual return home.
