Faced with a 230-mile round trip, one Walsall fan decided to book themselves some cheap accommodation in order to break up the long haul down to the south coast for Saturday’s League One game against Portsmouth.
Alas, in attempting to secure the cheapest possible overnight stop, it would appear that the intrepid Saddlers fan in question dropped a bit of clanger when it came to researching the specific location of their out-of-town hotel…
Some Walsall fan has booked a hotel 11 miles from Pompey which he thought was cheap…it’s on the Isle Of Wight 😂😂😂😂

For the uninitiated, allow us to illustrate the length and breath of the error involved…
Oh well, what League One match isn’t enlivened by a short ferry ride beforehand?
