 Katowice Poland? Didn't we all have to get on the free buses from the fanzone to the ground for our own safety?

Yep. Strange little fanzone in Katowice to the stadium in Chorzow. I remember cars pulling up beside us on the motorway and dishing out all sorts of threats as we ambled along in the buses 😂

The bar owner renovated his bar from top to bottom on the strength of those half pints.

Bosnia game now listed as being Stadion Bilino polje in Zenica on the UEFA website.

https://www.uefa.com/european-qualifiers/match/2028566--bosnia-and-herzegovina-vs-northern-ireland/

Hardly a confirmation (UEFA and Wiki have been wrong before) but if it is then no reason why the IFA couldn't have already ordered applications and could quicky skim off and notify the top X hundred names but I'll be surprised if they have.

Some people will be expecting tickets to be allocated and in accounts by the end of the day probably...

Kolasinic, Bosnia and Arsenal FB, has injured his ankle and won't be back in full training until January:

Daresay he'll be ok for our game but still, along with a new manager due at the Emirates, every little bit of disruption helps.

Might overdo the Christmas dinner now, too. :smiliz58:

Looks like it will be Dušan Bajević, going off the Bosnian fan accounts. Due to be announced next Thursday apparently.

Confirmed by the Bosnian FA this morning:

5% of 15,600 (according to the link above) would be 780.

I read the Welsh got 725 last time they played there

Afaik, the away allocation can sometimes be reduced if there are segregation issues, or even if space is needed for TV and media?

Anyhow, decent ground guide  here which also includes this snippet:

"The standard away ticket allocation appears to be between 660 and 700 – at least for the upcoming Euro 2016 qualifier against Wales."

And we better hope it doesn't rain, or worse still, snow! :o
