    As mentioned in a previous post. I also believe the game will be played in Astana for the following reasons. Almaty has an old communist style stadium with only a main stand and the other 3 sides open. There’s also a running track and I very much doubt, looking at pictures of the stadium it has underground heating. Their climate would not guarantee them being able to host a game in Almaty. They play the odd game in Almaty but not normal during March or November. The stadium in Astana is new with a retractable roof and an artificial surface. It could stage a game all year round. The hosts wouldn’t want to embarrass themselves with UEFA by having a game called off in Almaty, when they already have an ideal stadium in Astana. This is why I am convinced the game will be in Astana and the have told UEFA them can host a home game during March. Its also the first game of their campaign and will want to give themselves the best opportunity to have a positive start. They play Russia at home 3 days after our game. I have talked myself into believing the game will be in Astana and have booked my flights! Cat

    Russian visa

    Do any regular visitors to Russia have any top tips regarding visa applications? It appears you have to submit your finger prints as part of the visa application, prior to travelling. Thanks, Cat

The bus will leave from Hotel Colosseo, Rruga e Durresit, Tirana at 1100. The bus driver will take a rest stop at a service station then we arrive in Shkoder at approximately 1300.

    Gonna miss this place

    Sad news indeed. Thanks to the MODS and Admin for your efforts over the years. The down turn in traffic has been compounded due to having only 2 away games this year. When we had 6 last year. Over the years the TAMB has saved me a lot of money with good travel advice and it has been nice to see like minded people helping each other out. I for one, would be more than happy to pay an annual subscription to maintain the existing TAMB or contribute to a new project. I would be happy to "spend money to save money" in the long run.

      I see on the TAMB you are still looking for a seat on another bus.

      Do you still require a seat to the game?

      Hey Cat!

      Apologies! Just the one seat! When I messaged you the other night my laptop died on me and I wasn't sure if the message had gotten through as I couldn't find the thread afterwards!

      No, I just need the one seat so please reserve just the one for me and I'll see in Munchies the day of the game!
