To ensure that you have precisely the Songs you need ahead of your journey it would be better to synchronise over a wired connection - simply switch match off, synchronise, switch match on - match will not remove the Songs and they will be there for listening on the Tube.
From your description is sounds like iTunes Match is completing a series of updates over the air to your iPhone which are simply not completing in a timely fashion. It should be possible to update whilst in WiFi range ahead of your journey - allowing update over mobile comms will inevitably be a slow experience.

So what you're saying is that Match fundamentally doesn't work? What's the point in me paying for such a service if I have to disable it to acheive a job that it should already be doing.
Generally Match is fine, it is just this really annoying & illogical behaviour of the tracks physically disappearing from my iPhone instantly after they have downloaded (which proves that the connection I am using is sufficient for the purpose whether it be wifi or 3G).
Why does it takes hours for them to reappear when they shouldn't be disappearing in the first place?
I will send some feedback to Apple in the vein hope that they can fix the bug.
Thanks for taking the time to respond

I've just come across the same issue.
I have an album on my iPad but it has completely disappeared from my iPhone, also from playlists.
On iTunes, this album appears as purchased.
I'm wondering if there is any solution to it.
I've restarted my phone but no result.
