    It was all Zubrowka & apple juice when I was there (for our match in Bydgoszcz).

    The World at War

    An outstanding series, which I can watch again and again and again; although it is the Eastern Front, which really ignites my interest. I cannot remember the figure for the life of me, but I once read of how many hours of footage they trawled through in order to make the programme. Whatever the figure; it was big... VERY big.

    Jack Harper

    As a Scot with an English accent, it really pisses me off to know Jack Harper grew up in Spain and somehow wangled a Scottish accent... Oh, and I hope the wee bugger goes on to play for Scotland many, many, times and bags a ton of goals in the process. Would love to see him get a full cap soon.

    Hertha Berlin Tickets

    I've been twice and just strolled up and bought tickets at the turnstyle. Don't just go for the match; have a walk around the whole Nazi Olympic Complex. It's a fantastic stadium and how they have maintained the exterior and complex as it was in 1936 but made the interior fit for the 21st centre is quite wonderful.

    If any of you visit Antwerp, you might like to get along to the stadium there. The two side stands are from a bygone era and I can't imagine they'll be there for many more years. If the groundsman catches you, he'll likely give you a tour and have you up in the camera gantry! There is a fan bar at the ground and some normal bars around the tram stop.

    The Weather thread

    The photo: they've actually rolled their shirt sleeves up. That's a statement in itself.

    Where are you going to stay?

    Considering it. Options; Sam Marino... Rimini town (west of the tracks)... Rimini resort (east of the tracks)... or Bologna. Never even saw Rimini town last time.

    Trivia Question - Cancelled Friendly Matches

    I never heard anything about playing the Basque national team, but the rumours about Egypt away were widespread and it was certainly discussed here on the TAMB. Was there any truth in it? I think there probably was. As to why it may have been cancelled, I don't know. Obviously, people start discussing travel options when these rumours start and I think it was Paul NATA who got caught out when someone posted 'Whatever you do, don't get the Night Boat To Cairo - it's Madness'. Only for Paul to reply, 'Why? What's wrong with it?'
  9. 'The Mail Comment' is intriguing... '... Mrs May's level-headed, realistic compromise. The alternative is several different kinds of chaos, bad for us all and very bad for the economy and our prosperity'. Sorry, did this newspaper not push for an all out Brexit over many, many years?

    Weather - Ball Freezingly Cold

    I think the coldest I've ever known was -16 in Kiev, but I wasn't kilted up.

    A colleague of mine was in Bruges on Sunday (off a mini cruise)... She's not that excitable TBH, but she was VERY impressed with Bruges.

    Even if you are only changing flights in Moscow, do you need any kind of paperwork? A transit visa? P.S. slightly related; I flew to the Israel match via Kiev... I thought me and my luggage had been booked all the way through to Tel Aviv, but at check-in in London, Ukraine International Airlines instructed me otherwise; instructed me to collect my bags at Kiev and to go through arrivals and then go and check-in for my second flight... Now... if such an unexpected occurrence happened in Moscow, I'd be in the shit, wouldn't I?

    I had a great trip last time... In addition to the touristy stuff, I had some cracking nights out; got to see Anderlecht at home and did some other groundhopping, etc... Plenty to do, but I was hugely disappointed with Brussels. The Grande Place and its immediate surroundings are nice, but the rest of it was really quite shit. In appearance, Brussels is probably the most disappointing city I've ever been with Scotland. EDIT: I caught the train 25 minutes out to a Leuven v Club Brugge match (one of the best football matches I have ever attended, actually). Leuven was really quite nice and with loads of nightlife (I think it might be a university town).
  14. How are the EU punishing the UK? The UK wants to leave and the UK is free to leave; so why doesn't it just f*cking leave?! Why is Theresa May trying to wangle a deal? The UK wanted to leave, so it should just go. No deals. Just pay the bill and leave. Don't get me wrong; I think it would be absolutely suicidal for the UK economy, but f*ck it.... The Boris's and Rees-Mogg's in this are fucking mental, as are the people who voted for it, but hey, fuck it... Let's follow these pricks... THEN England and Wales gets what it wants and in the not too distant future - when the shit hits the fan and the economy tanks - our 55% will hopefully wake up and vote yes. P.S. only realised this today... Only London, Northern Ireland and Scotland voted to stay in!!! Outside of London, not one single region in England voted to stay in the EU... I Never knew that... That's f*cking astonishing.
  15. I think the EU have been extremely accommodating; very tolerant of the incoherent ramblings of the UK Government The EU should have just said, 'Pay your bill and f*ck off'. I'm sure the EU's recently signed trade deals with Canada and Japan would soften the loss of the UK trade.
