I'm at a loss as to how that is relevant to journeys or fares?
Advanced fares increase the more that are sold. But won't affect us as not the same train

But not to somewhere else! We are buying tickets to Liverpool and they are buying tickets on a completely different route and travelling in a different direction.

if you have more than one set of fans travelling on the same line ( these 2 aren't ) there are less cheap tickets to go around

Simon W thought it was on the same route. So it made some sense to post on that basis, but obviously none once it was pointed out to be a different route.

For split ticketers it may have an impact on prices for the Euston-Crewe leg of the journey (or wherever one chooses to split).

Yes. Now try from Manchester to London. They’re going in the other direction. They’re not buying early morning ticket to Crewe from London. Enough!

Hotel prices in central Liverpool for the Sat are very steep. At least £170 for a room at Prem Inn!

Get on the Just Park app there was loads of safe driveways with 5 star reviews from football fans a couple of weeks ago. It’s the way to go if you drive to away games
got mine sorted, £13, 10 minute walk to the away end

The Man City match is in Manchester, but anyway irrelevant as you say.

Find it odd that there are no tickets on sale yet - usually 3 months in advance on most routes. I am slightly OCD so want to have everything sorted well in advance :cry:

Word of warning if you are planning to stay Saturday night in Liverpool - the hotel prices are exorbitant - but currently half the price on the Friday night for a pre match overnight.

Got mine for £55/night but outside of the city centre so depends on whether you want to pay more for city centre or are prepared to meander in before/after the game. Think my hotel is only 2.5 miles from Anfield so no issues there :sorted:

Christmas gifts are probably driving up prices; I know a lot of Liverpool fans in Ireland like to travel over in January so I'm not surprised the hotels are expensive especially for a Saturday 3pm game.

Split your ticket at Crewe, saves a fair whack of money.

(Based on looking at MK to Liverpool Lime Street on the latest Saturday available when I looked over the weekend).

For split ticketers it may have an impact on prices for the Euston-Crewe leg of the journey (or wherever one chooses to split).
Don't do it to yourself.
Let's see what Avanti come up with when they finally release their advance tickets.
The split ticket you mention is the very slow train I mentioned in post 1. It doesn't even need to be booked in advance so would be a good backup (unless you have found something a lot cheaper than £49.10 adult).
Or maybe you are suggesting waiting for the advance ticket and splitting your journey. Will certainly try that when the time comes!

Yeah, the bold was what I meant,although the crawler trains are another option for the hardy traveller. More train time = more #cans.

Not sure if this will affect train journeys or fares .. Man City v Chelsea lunchtime kick off is on the same day
Interestingly the same fixture was played when we played them in the FA cup quarter final.

Bonkers knowledge ✅

That’s been like that for few weeks. That’s an off peak return not advance singles with restrictions on which train you board.

Still good price though with discount.
