I took last year

I’ve made the same journey

I was due in London

I drove in to

a nice, peaceful trip on a half-empty train

loud voices and singing coming from the main station concourse

managed to find a seat before the train filled up
noisy fans

being interrupted by laughter, singing and football stories

In the end

sat and relaxed

watching and listening to the excited fans
sit back and relax

would have preferred a quieter trip

friendly and good-natured

Some of the ones I found very useful:

prepaid ticket
(main) station concourse (as I has never heard the word "concourse" before)
fill up (the train filled up)
all in all
