  1. Excellent. I'm based down South and my pal Mike is flying down from Edinburgh via T5 meeting him this side of security in T4 about 2pm. There appears to be a pub called the Windsor Cazstle so will plan to be in there. Shouldn't be able to miss us - Mike's aboot 6 ft 4 and I'm 5 ft 4 both will be in kilts. Bit like twins he's blond but no Arnie but perhaps I'm a bit the shape of Danny De Vito but with hair.
  2. Two of us arriving 5.45 am Wednesday off the Tuesday 5.15 pm Heathrow flight. Are any of you arriving about the same time ? If so any plans ? beer ?
  3. What a brilliant effort. Thanks. Genuinely really appreciate all the time sent on this.
  4. I think you misread the rate. It's per hour not per night !
  5. Cheers Glosta. Was radisson ok and is it ok to get to places from there ? Seems to be a spread out city so is it a case of taxis from which ever hotel you chose ? Do you think they'll open bar at 5.30 ?🤔🤣
  6. That sounds a good shout. We're staying at the Radisson (which was surprisingly cheap if anyone's still to book - £40 each per night sharing) - I don't think we'll get a significant early check in and if we go there to drink well end up no being allowed to stay !!! 😉😂 Expect will be up for a few post landing beers anyway as brain will still be on UK time and no doubt will have had a snooze on the plane
  7. We arrive from heathrow at 5.15 am on the Wednesday (20th leaving Tuesday 19th). Pointless paying for a hotel so will have to kill time until about noon before checking in. If anyone hears of a 24 hour bar / drinking place can they post details. Realise it's leading up to their big holiday too which may make it worse or better ! Assume we cant be the only ones in this situation and 5.15 am is only 11.15 pm the day before so still valid drinking hour in my book !!!!
  8. Cheers Glosta. Booked us in at the Radisson - working out about £40 each per night in a twin - after spending £££ on flights thought an extra few £ on hotel OK. Sounds a good hotel for that price - do you need taxis from there to the nightlife ? Also cheers on the temperature tip. Checked the average in March - negative 2 degrees, That's the average high ! negative 16 average low ! Wowwwww !!!! Steppes colder than Stepps !!!!
  9. We're on that Tuesday flight from Heathrow too. Air Astana have really good reviews so here's hoping. Back on the Saturday direct flight back to Heathrow - pricey at £560 return but no fannying around. The 5.40 am arrival is reminding me of the Georgia game - pointless having a hotel at that time so that called for a breakfast beer on arrival. Then another...… 6 hour time difference - gonna be weird both ways.
  10. The comment about Robertson not being exactly spectacular in the last few games took me back (showing my age) to the criticism Dalgleish used to take for "not playing as well" for Scotland ! Robertson had a crap game in Israel but so did the whole team (and yeah I get he's captain) but against Albania he was prolific - I'm sure most of you were there and saw the miles he covered and how much he does off the ball - it really brings home his passion and belief. He had a good game on Tuesday too and really has only had the one off game. The guy is, with perhaps Forrest if he can continue this form , our one world class player.( Not putting down the others who are doing well). Remember he's a young captain - truly exciting leader for the country's team. A bad Andy R would still be a first pick for us !
  11. Same with me. And the Austrian Airlines woman "helping" to get new flight in Vienna last night was unbelievable rude. When I said I would say thank you but you've been rude and unhelpful she said well I think you've been rude too. Just the customer service you need after their flight shambles.
  12. I'm on that same flight from Heathrow in the morning to Vienna but going from there to Podgorica. Perhaps catch you for an early beer at Heathrow - I'll be the eejit with that old deck chair away top on.
  13. Dinnae get me wrong, always want us to win everything but just been scratching my heid on the rules 're level on points (as we would be with Israel if we win in Albania). I reckon we'd not qualify with a draw against Israel ? So purely from perspective of winning the group no difference draw or win ? (And before someone says I'm being negative - no I'm no suggestin we play for a draw!).
