I've just looked up Solihull on Wikipedia and discovered where they are and that as a town they are two and a half times larger than Chester. They would seem tonot have our problem of getting good gates. I think we will get yet another away draw at 1 - 1.

They have similar problems to Gateshead, too near the big clubs and so lose support to them. For example my in laws are from that side of Brum and all support Villa.

I hope you are right. Boxing Day normally throws up some weird results depending on the extent of the players celebrations the previous day.

There is a difference in population between the city of Chester and the administrative area of Chester, which includes the surrounding areas as well as the city.

Yes, long-term roadworks from Lymm down to past Stafford. It's 50mph average speed check all that way, and no hard shoulder (they're building another managed motorway).

I must say it's been going on for a long, long time and I've only been held up in it once. On Boxing Day, I think you'll be OK and the A41 is a dangerous road.

They've also just opened a new direct slip from the M56 to the M6 at Lymm, which speeds up the journey from Chester.

Yes, you are right BW, the is a big difference. Wikipedia states: "Cheshire West and Chester, which had a population of 332,200 in 2014.[1]" but I was originally referring to the CITY of Chester.

Looks like there's a car park at the ground for £2 but after that's full they say they don't "recommend" street parking (whatever that means) and point you to the airport NCP.

At one time Mickle Trafford was included in the City of Chester, then it became a part of the Wirral voting area, and since then I think it's back in Chester? That's one of the reasons I moved, I didn't want to become a "stateless" person. rolleyes.gif

I think that what people are trying to say is that the Chester 'catchment area' is much bigger than just chester city. It covers blacon , Upton, Saltney lache Upton. As well as lots of villages close to the city

There is a difference again between Chester and Cheshire west, the administrative area of Chester and the city of Chester population JD .no one counts eport as Chester as its west Cheshire but you have to include the likes of Upton ,blacon ect so that's why you get the fugure of around 125.000 cityscarf.gif
