    Maybe set up one of those fundraising pages EG to pay for my flights (I did give a lot of folk on here the 'heads up' about buying tickets in the Dutch end so hopefully their consciences will get the better of them and I would say a tenner a head would suffice - we could start with Tarabonga ).

    Just checked - Saigon to Sarajevo with Turkish Airlines looking a 'snip' at £531 SINGLE 😱

    Think you're having it bad EG - I'll be in S E Asia (probably Vietnam) in March and I would surmise that the choice of flights from Saigon/Hanoi to Sarajevo will be a bit thin on the ground!!

    Looking two tickets

    Quite an ironic post here as it was myself who started the topic with regards to getting tickets into the Dutch end. I only found out yesterday that a very good friend of mine is two short for his party who are travelling - he thought they were sorted by the IFA but you know the rest!! Hopefully there are still a few folk out there who got tickets in the Dutch end but also managed to win the golden ticket and get ones from the IFA - please send me a PM if you can help me out and I can arrange to collect them here (within reason) or have them posted (I'll be in the 'Dam from the Wednesday lunchtime so that would also be another option). Cheers in advance.

    Score Prediction v Holland

    That 1-1 seems to be the popular prediction on here (and I always thought I was the eternal optimist in the party 🙄)

    Score Prediction v Holland

    Funny enough Michael I was in the bookies today and that's the score I'll be investing in - I'll buy you a beer if/when it comes up.

    Score Prediction v Holland

    Quietly confident about this one especially after hearing how thon big donkey played against a pub team from Salzburg the other night.

    UEFA considering international leagues

    Loved Belgrade the last time we were there so would fancy another trip there especially with a proper home support there rather than the two or three hundred 'journalists' who were present at the last game.

    Bulgaria, Austria and Hungary it is then Chris, can live with that. However if it's Scotland, Turkey and that other bunch I think my away day travels may be taking an extended break.

    Nearly been there a couple of times EG including 2008 when United went and ruined it by winning the Champions League in Moscow which meant our entire time was spent there!! Supposed to be a magnificent city - some day soon hopefully.

    I'll second that McF especially St Petersburg which is one city I need to visit.

    Post Mortem

    I was in Laverys expecting him to turn up Phil but he must have headed somewhere else. I really don't know how he did it - as I said I was probably at well over half of those games with him and it nearly finished me. We went to Paris for one United game and he never ate a bite for the three or four days we were there but drank enough to re-float the Titanic!! He's also a great tourist as you well know - he once asked me why I bothered visiting Ayer's Rock when I was in Oz as at the end of the day it's just a 'large stone' and he also couldn't see the point of going out to the 'big hole in the ground' (aka the Grand Canyon) while in Vegas!! I suggested that if they could somehow transport the big stone and stick it into the big hole in the ground it would save a lot of hassle and travel 😂 He did get the last laugh mind you when we were at another game in Madrid and after an all day session I got up to go the the Prado museum and he asked me what to f..k was I going there for - it was a Monday and I hadn't done my research as it doesn't open and he had a good laugh when I tracked him down to a watering hole near our hotel that afternoon. He's a freak.

    Post Mortem

    I went to an awful lot of United games with a very good friend of mine Jackie from Ahoghill and at one stage he went to EVERY United game for eight years except one (every airport in the UK was closed that we could have flown into but I managed to get there via a dodgy ferry from Dublin) - we guessed it must be been somewhere in the region of four hundred and seventy!! He used to keep a list of what it cost him for flights, tickets, hotels etc and it would have frightened you - thankfully he didn't keep a record of beer and 'entertainment' expenses as I was probably at half of the games if not more with him and it would have broken my heart (never mind my bank balance) had I known. And you know what, I don't regret it for a second 🤗

    My head is spinning with all this information - I think I'll just re-visit on the morning of the 17th November to see how things are shaping up.

    Come on 'Section E' you must be able to do better than that - I'll be in S E Asia when the play-off matches will be played so I need you to be slightly more specific so I can book my flights back 🙄 Seriously, great work (even though you have stolen it!!) and as you say it will take some really bad luck to stop us getting a play-off game - not sure whether to book flights back for the semi or final

    So 'never' now becomes less than eleven months (my birthday by the way!!) - come on EG shape up.

    Germany or Holland Result

    Of course it is 'Chopper' but that's the nature of the game and it is unlikely but it can happen so that's why I say 'keep' the faith. Going back many years to the game in Hamburg in '83. most people thought we hadn't a chance of qualifying for the Euros after losing 1-0 in Turkey the month before and I would suggest about three quarters of those booked to go decided to give it a byeball as it was deemed impossible for us to qualify (it wasn't). We all know the result of that game and unfortunately it proved fruitless in the end after the Germans scored twice in the last ten minutes to come from behind to beat Albania and knock us out on goal difference but we still had a chance (sorry as if I'm repeating myself). Like many on here I'll be going to both Rotterdam and Frankfurt however if I thought there was no chance of us getting a result at either game then I would stay at home and do something else with my dough like give it to the church!!
