Army v Navy was on Saturday I believe, dunno what crowd it got though.

Fair enough, was not aware of that match.

 

No idea then!

Unless they anticipated the vastly higher number of away support Bradford would bring as opposed to St Helens...

Aye, enough of an overlap though IMO. I can't quite grasp how this weekend gone was ok but the Cup weekend isn't. Even after the official statements from the coppers and suchlike.

Most "working" Londoners use the tube.

Btw I use the tube and train to get to work, and often use the bus at weekends

No most "working" Londoners do not use the tube on a regular basis, that is opinion is derived from TFL statistics. There are twice as many bus journeys in London than there are tube journeys. There are 8.5 million residents in London, working age population is 5.5 million. There is no way most working Londoners use the tube on a regular basis based on the number of passenger journeys. THis is before you take into account London has 1 million commuters daily from outside London and 10 million visitors a year.

 

What you mean is (along with Goldcoaster)  "I use the tube so most other people use the tube". Which does not stand up to reason, logic and ignores the available statistics which indicate otherwise.

Presumably because of the advance notice? They would have known about the league clashing with the army/navy game for months, barely 3 weeks notice for the cup game is harder to manage I imagine

Also, I read something earlier about the Army/Navy game having ridiculously high security, so the increased police presence would have easily absorbed a couple of thousand people at the stoop

* 137 is now out of date - 4.17 million journeys made 9 December 2012. The week ending Saturday 10 December was also a record-breaker, with a new weekly high of 24.9 million people using the Tube
