If you live in the UK other than England you get a free bus pass at 60. In England we have to wait to 65 or retirement age.
But whenever you reach 60 you can get a Senior Railcard.
It's £30 for a year. It saves about 33% on every off-peak rail fare you buy.
Three off-peak trips from home to London would pay for itself and more.
So I got one. First use today. It only works for rail fare. You will still be stiffed by Sadiq Khan's TfL for any buses and underground trains.
So far saved £11.20.
As I bought it with Tesco Clubcard no actual money changed hands...

The Arsenal going there with a 3-1 lead but both clubs earlier in the week in the Champions League with a lead, had lost over two games ...
When Valencia scored early it looked as though they could comeback. But two Aubameyang goals put using the driving seat. Then they equalised.
Game on. Firstly Lacazette scored to 3-2 and Aubameyang got his third and it was 4-2 and 7-3 over the two games.
In the other Semi, Chelsea beat Eintracht Frankfurt after a penalty shootout.
Off to Baku Azerbaijan in three weeks for the Final. For me. TV supporter.

Why do we do it?
Why do we invest so much in a sports team that ultimately takes your support and sometimes fanatical support, and who then throws it in your face.
And that's the polite way to say it.
Another poor laboured performance confirming that Arsenal are only good enough to finish 5th or 6th this year.
A 1-1 draw with a poor team like Brighton sums up a really crap April and May in the league.
But thousands of us will be back to get kicked in the teeth next year.

Supporter confidence is low! See what happens?
3-1. Incredibly should have been more. Two goals from Lacazette and one from Aubameyang.
Laca had two sitters get away...
Off to Spain a week tonight.
