    Nations League Draw.. (3/3/20)

    This would be so much harder to police with testing than domestic football And the clubs in domestic football across Europe will be arguing that their competitions should take precedence in what will likely be a reduced calendar and that theoir players will need protecting Then factor in the travel restrictions, and maybe quarantines, which could well be in place through the rest of this year I'd be shocked if the Nations League proceeds in 2020 as it will not be seen as the priority by UEFA either

    Nations League Draw.. (3/3/20)

    Hard to say, apart from the inevitable likelihood that there'll be no fans in attendance.

    How is it looking for the Nations League games going ahead?

    Nations League Draw.. (3/3/20)

    I can't see this going ahead. If (and it's a big if) football returns by the autumn, the priority will be completing domestic leagues and compressing the next season. If things do get back to some sort of normality a gawa party in Bucharesti could be on the cards rather than lose the cost of flights though..

    Nations League Draw.. (3/3/20)

    Yes, but I wouldn't be surprised to see the 20/21 Nations League ditched.

    Nations League Draw.. (3/3/20)

    Are these fixtures still scheduled to go ahead?

    Nations League Draw.. (3/3/20)

    Flights booked for Austria, just need the venue now.

    You get to watch Northern Ireland. How could it possibly be boring?

    Nations League Draw.. (3/3/20)

    Booked to go to Romania as not been there before and Norway was expensive and worst still very boring! Probably do Austria too once the venue is confirmed, overall a boring draw.

    Nations League Draw.. (3/3/20)

    Yes my mate said they where playing on the Saturday. I'm sure i'll run into quite a few.

    Nations League Draw.. (3/3/20)

    I'm supposed to be in Yorkshire in April, now looking at the Ferry & hire car to make that happen!

    Nations League Draw.. (3/3/20)

    Went there about a year and a half ago too Richard, albeit just the one full day and night with work. Nice spot. Still bears, wolves and snakes in the forest/mountain there! Hopefully wangle a wee work trip there when we play. Flights to Vienna are cheap enough at the minute as well so good chance of going to Austria, really enjoyed it the last time. Not sure about Norway, ideally it would be a few days trip as I've never been but flights are dear and it's a dear hole itself so more than likely a No-Go.

    Get the boat from Liverpool the night before. Sure it may be behind close doors if we even have a match to worry about

    Nations League Draw.. (3/3/20)

    Well, I've just discovered Easyjet have cancelled their Manchester-Belfast flight on the morning of the potential play-off final. I hadn't booked but was intending to if we beat Bosnia. With Flybe going under and Ryanair only operating the route in summer now, we are not in a good moment, as José would say.

    Nations League Draw.. (3/3/20)

    Airlines probably in a panic at the moment?
  19. Richardh

    Nations League Draw.. (3/3/20)

    Not been much of a home crowd last night couple of times we've played there, would be better off playing somewhere else. The 28000 capacity Allianz Stadium in Vienna would do well, Klagenfurt and Salzburg are around 32000.
  20. Clint

    Nations League Draw.. (3/3/20)

    Given the attendance at the last game (i.e. no home fans) I wonder if they'd be tempted to play us somewhere other than Vienna.

    Anyone been to constant, Romania?

    Nations League Draw.. (3/3/20)

    Sweaty Socks in Bratislava at that time. ...
  24. D Coop Ulster

    Nations League Draw.. (3/3/20)

    Oslo and Austria booked with the latter through Bratislava. As a few have said previous £65 to Oslo was too good to turn down, yes the place is expensive but just don't go mad and you'll be fine and i'm only doing Sat-Mon Only booked Bucharest on the way out as the return was wild expensive so will be looking at options to get home at a later stage. Not probably the most attractive draw but i quite enjoyed Oslo the last time, absolutely loved Bucharest and with staying in lovely Bratislava instead of Vienna it should be a good set of matches. Of course if venues change then a bit more travel is involved but you just suck it up and get on with it 😀
  25. Tarabonga

    Nations League Draw.. (3/3/20)

    The nation's league is likely to be like that though, with a much reduced pool of teams that we can draw.

    Nations League Draw.. (3/3/20)

    not the most exciting of draw against teams we have already played very recently
  27. hughes18

    Nations League Draw.. (3/3/20)

    Was surprised at how cheap the travel to Oslo and Vienna is sitting (not that I've booked anything yet) and also by how dear Romania is to get to, even from GB. Are there maybe some winter schedules not released yet?
