There was a report of a (nother) knife attack and a slash injury, can't find the article right now though to check the location.

Bramall Lane’s traffic chaos affects the entire city centre. I think we should move the Bramlll Lane somewhere quieter, like Darnall.
Or Rotherham?!

The influx of students must be bigger than ever before, I have been going to the Lane 40 years, including student days and never seen traffic as gridlocked as that.

It`s great we attract so many students to the city, but next year Utd have got to request an away game on that day, as many teams do when there are events in their towns/citys.

Sometimes having our wonderful stadium, in the heart of this fantastic City can be a hindrance,a team playing right out on the edge of the City, on the Barnsley border, wouldn`t have experienced these problems.

Liverpool was the same on Saturday. Never seen the roads so gridlocked or so many youngsters out with their parents!

Only one day a year so not really a massive drama.

I managed to get from Hillsborough to B&Q on queens road then to Norton Lees with out a great deal of delay, took a similar time as it would have in rush hour. I set off about 30 mins into the game i have a feeling i might just have missed the worst of it.

The main congestion that i saw was stemming from St Mary's Gate/Bramhall lane roundabout, with people wanting to go all the way around the roundabout but not been able to turn onto Bramhall lane. Also Ecclesall road looked very busy and people were at a standstill trying to get on to it
