No doubt many supporters will be looking forward to the festive period and the inevitable visits from the in-laws.
Wasn’t it Shrek’s donkey who famously said, “Where there is a will, there is a-way” fixtures to escape to?
Make sure you do not get caught out by the frustrations of a Sunday service timetable and premium rate taxis.

In recent weeks this column has covered a wide range of issues, topics which have had a significant impact on the matchday experience of supporters.
‘Traffic congestion’ prompted a number of readers to take to their keyboards and say how unhappy they are with the current ‘exit’ arrangements from the John Smith’s Stadium and adjoining car parks.
Similarly the views expressed about ‘safe standing’ were greeted with overwhelming approval, not least of all from those who prefer to remain seated.
Supporters who travelled to the Pirelli Stadium last week, and did not have a ticket for the seated area, will vouch for the fact that ‘standing’ can add to the atmosphere, but it does have drawbacks.
Last-minute arrivals, due to roadworks on the M1 and A38, had difficulty finding space on the terracing.
This was despite the best efforts and semaphores of the stewards.
Notwithstanding the fact that it was not Town’s best performance of the season, the clambering and scrambling of spectators at the final whistle clearly demonstrated that the case for rail-seating is a very sound one.
Both traffic congestion and rail-seating will feature on the agenda for tomorrow’s HTSA Board Meeting.
It is only with this information that the “Voice of the Fans” can speak with conviction on behalf of our member and with the surveys open to all Huddersfield Town fans please add to the volume.
HTSA is a willing listener and we are endeavouring to make effective changes.
Meanwhile, as 2016 draws to a close ‘then the bells will ring so merrily, every goal will be a memory’ and Town fans everywhere will be pinching themselves in disbelief.
It really does feel as though all our Christmases have come at once, including a very welcome ‘present’ earlier this week with the news that David Wagner intends to remain present at our Club, rather than gifting himself to the Bundesliga.
Let’s give him our full support, starting on Boxing Day.
So enjoy a very ‘Happy Christmas’ and a top-of-the-table, bell-ringing New Year.
Remember, HTSA are the voice of the fans. If you’d like to know more or get involved, feel free to email our Chairman, Trev Whitehead at firstname.lastname@example.org.
