    Post mortem

    Anodyne match report from The Sarajevo Times: BiH national team defeated Northern Ireland and achieved the third consecutive victory in the League of Nations. The atmosphere at the stadium was great, and Adnan Fejzic decided to take a photo of the match from the air. The amazing atmosphere was kept until the morning hours in BiH’s capital Sarajevo, and Northern Ireland fans had a good time while eating, drinking in the local pubs, and singing on Grbavica stadium during the match. That Grbavica Stadium on Monday night was the center of Bosnia and Herzegovina is best described by the photo that Adnan Fejzic decided to publish. To recall, BiH national team defeated visiting Northern Ireland 2-0 in the capital Sarajevo in the fourth round the UEFA Nations League group stage on Monday. After low-intensity start to the match and with many mistakes in both teams, Haris Duljevic from BiH team adds the ball to Edin Visca, but he misses the goal in 11th minute. Four minutes later, Edin Dzeko from BiH team strikes the ball from 5 meters, but misses. Visiting team had a real chance to score the goal in 20th minute when George Saville hit the goalpost. Seven minutes later, after Jamal Lewis made a mistake, Edin Dzeko manages to take the ball and scores 1-0 for the host team. The second half saw more intense play by the visiting team, and in 65thminute Gavin Whyte hit the goalpost while striking a ball from 3 meters. In 73rd minute, Miralem Pjanic sends ball from the center to Edin Dzeko who scores for the final result of 2-0 for the host team. http://www.sarajevotimes.com/amazing-photo-of-grbavica-stadium-during-bih-northern-ireland-match/

    Didn't even notice the U16 bit, I'm just too skeptical! I'll probably end up buying a ticket. It just stings when it's not justified at that price.

    Best and worst - Sarajevo

    Might this have part-contributed to the great atmosphere in the stadium? That is, the GAWA got well tanked up during the day, but having to march to the ground early, then go 3 hours off the sauce meant we all reached the optimal singing setting on the Drunkometer during the game? That could, of course, be complete balls, but the atmosphere was, as Hughes18 noted, one of the best ever.

    Best and worst - Sarajevo

    There was the guy who setup the coke stall at the bottom of the stairs beside the toilets! That was it. I thought that was the only stairs though until I saw fans leaving at end of the game on the left, so you may have missed it.

    Cracking place by the way if you are going Richard with the longest street of bars in any town/city in Holland - thoroughly enjoyed it although my record of two defeats and one draw in three visits should say to the contrary!!

    I think the English teams have learned their lesson Richard. Me and Alan ordered tickets for our game in Athens in 2001 but never had any intention of going and then the game was cancelled due to 'September 11' the day before however United (in a benevolent move not like them) send everyone who had applied for tickets £150 for any inconvenience caused by cancelled flights, trains etc - I was happy enough to accept it and it paid for our tickets for the rest of the campaign 😀

    To be fair that is U16 tickets at that price adult tickets are €65 I think tickets are well overpriced for a 'friendly' but if IFA allocate me one I will probably still be there to cheer on my country. And as stated would love to beat them especially in their own back yard!!

    So they know where the tickets are going?

    Tottenham fans have to collect tickets and wristbands in Eindhoven for the PSV game tomorrow.

    Especially when home tickets are priced at 15 euro on ticketmaster. Have to say it's only the pisstake of a price that's putting me off right now. Filling in vague travel details on a form and collecting tickets from a set location isn't really a problem, and probably to be expected. But being subject to an inflated price for a friendly in a half empty stadium is not on.

    I would very much doubt that they would. Their thinking would probably (rightly) be that the fewer who travel the better.

    what are the chances of IFA putting on coaches down to the game for the fans?

    Give the FAI £41 towards their budget? No chance.

    All this faff for a drive down South. I' go across the border regularly on my own steam without a second thought. Why do the IFA seem to always want to make us jump through hoops for tickets for away games lately?
  18. JCNI

    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    Agreed. I'm not the lead BB. He cannot always go to away matches. Up until around half way through the last campaign I always applied for the away tickets. I received all the relevant emails etc. Then, I was airbrushed from the IFA records. My 23 points wasn't enough for the Swiss away match. (Fortunately Turin supplied be with home end tickets.) ( I know the this is not relevant but I'm still pissed at the IFA.) My lead BB applied for our tickets for the matches in Vienna and Sarajevo. I was told I needed all sorts of things, (His name , A/C No. all travel confirmation etc.) to enable me to collect the tickets. In the event all I needed was the lead BB's name.

    They said the same for Austria and Bosnia and didn't follow through.
  20. windsor dreamland

    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    in their email the IFA said that "travel plans will be requested in advance" what does that mean - if you intend to drive down in your car do you have to inform them of that ??

    On second look it says “released... and will no longer be available for purchase” so you’re probably right that they won’t go on general sale
  22. Tarabonga

    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    Campaign cards don't have names, but the IFA asked for the names of all campaign card holders from the lead card holders when initially purchasing them. So when ordering tickets for Mexico they could cross check if they could be arsed.
  23. Tarabonga

    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    Does look strange. Released to who? A non campaign card holder? I haven't really been following this as I've no interest in going, but are the IFA going to put away tickets on general sale?
  24. distillery_till_i_die

    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    They don't have names for individual campaign card holders anyway, do they? I think with ours, it's just the main campaign card holders name they have.
  25. faircountyboy

    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    Agree with all the above but why would your ticket be “released” if you don’t take it up by 1st Nov
  26. Tarabonga

    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    And 3) the knowledge that if you're a naughty boy in Mexico you will risk your future entitlement to said campaign card.

    Hopefully news will spread. Fcuk all point getting a hard-on about how we played, when the end result is "nul point". A semi is the max allowable.

    Having to produce your CC is a way of 1) restricting who can buy tickets 2) knowing who is going to make it easier to identify people if needs be
