From here you can find some decent parking spaces and this is also the best place go to the pub etc...

Milage:
210 miles

Best Pub:
Slug and Lettuce - It's outside Fulham Broadway train station, situated a few minutes walk from the stadium. It's an upmarket pub with a good security and police presence outside on matchdays. Very full but rarely any trouble.

*I'm not feeling too confident about this one. I'm expecting a Chelsea win but I'm just hoping the players believe we can win. However, despite a good defensive record; I think Tevez, Bellamy and A Johnson can trouble the defence and the step-in goalkeeper Hilario.
