    Might to Birmingham and get train up. Flight is only €40 return. Is it far? Heard it's only about a 90 minute train drive. A bag of cans would make that journey fly.

    It's about 100 miles.

    So no, not too far on the train.

    I have never got the train from Brum to Liverpool, but I would guess it's about an hour and half like you said. Depending on how many times it stops.

    If you do choose to do this let me know and I will try and sort you some cheap train tickets.

    Just had a quick look for flights to Moscow (Yes, I know premature, sorry) on the 21st and coming back on the 22nd May and they are about £250 from Manchester.

    No worries mate.

    It's I know (Mum's Fella) one of the managers for Virgin Trains and he always gets me free or reduced travel.

    If you travel in the middle of the day and not peak times I doubt it would be major expensive from Brum to Liverpool anyway.

    You wanna have a look on www.thetrainline.com

    No need to ask my mate about train tickets for you mate.

    If you book them now on that website I just gave you it will only cost £9 for a single at 11:21am on the 22nd. Getting you to Liverpool for 1:09pm

    Come over the day before and stay the night.

    Or you could swim across the Irish sea.

    You could stop off at Robins house half way for a brew.

    Thats what the supporter club in Clonmel do, fly to Birmingham whenever they go to midweek matches. Its fair handy and works out probably cheaper.

    I can try, but I would imagine other people will have already booked it off.

    Might try and get a swap, get some bluenose to do it for me.

    Already done that mate.

    Will have to be a swap, or bite the bullet and work.

    It'd be a blantantly obvious sick day too. Surely everyone would know you would be faking it.

    Fake a Family Funeral? Another great option.
