Has it become twitchy bum time for all the wire fans that have booked rail tickets and hotel accomodation ? How presumptious.

How many have done that?

The only ones I know who have booked are going whether Warrington get there or not.

I clicked Monkeyman's link this morning to watch it.
Of course it was all in foreign, but I registered, got confirmation e-mails, clicked the links on those, and it didn't work.
I did get a very helpful message in French about why though.Fecked if I know what it meant, mind.
When I did my French O level 34 years ago, there was nothing about website registrations, and the like.
The old Grammar school system certainly sold me short.....

Saints next week, then the cup semi.
2 weeks which will make or break the season for us.
That monkey has to go soon, surely?
Wires record breaking 10 match run: L 16-17 ; L 34-36 ; L 24-44 ; L 20-38 ; L 8-46; L 14-26 ; L 20-40 ; L 22-48 ; L 14-20 ; L 8-60. Thanks Jimmy.The Glamour Club. Apparently.

To be fair, booking a hotel is hardly being presumptious, as they can be cancelled free of charge. I would suspect that nobody has paid 60 for trains though which generally can't be cancelled.

It is common sense rather than being presumptious as 3owls suggests.

There will be a few that's for sure, it's human nature and some are born gamblers. I remember sitting in a pub directly after we beat wigan in the quarters listening to four lads on the next table. Their plan was to listen to draw on the wednesday and if we got catalans one lad booked the train tickets and another one booked the match tickets, if it was saints or wire everything was on hold. I also remember a customer of mine booking a FLIGHT and hotel for the cup final when we were up against huddersfield in the semi of 2006. We'd murdered em away from home the same month and they were struggling. Guess what, he ended up flying down to watch huddersfield in the cup final that year not leeds. There will be a few from warrington taking a gamble believe me.

Hmm, think you may be under-estimating the tightness tbh!

Most people know that they won't be able to get rid of tickets as there are always plenty knocking around, and if you can't transfer or cancel your train/flights then you are pretty much giving money away. There is no real reason to gamble tbh as it is easy to get tickets. Hotels are well worth booking in advance and then cancelling if you don't make it as there is no cost (my parents have done that as watching neutral teams doesn't do it for them).

I think most people who have booked anything you have to pay in advance for will probably be attending either way,.
