    We're on our way.....

    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.
  2. 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!).

    Same for me - that irritates me (I'm being polite) - two pick up times no where near where the game is actually being played and only one right before the match in the town where the game is being played !!!! OK I know loads are flying to Tirana but there's also a fair few flying in to Podgorica and surely there'll also be a good crowd wanting the be in Shkoder the day before the match. I try not to have a go at them (that's too easy and it's not the people on the ground's fault) but could it be that the SFA weren't as clued up as the supporters and had Tirana arrangements and hotels booked up before the actual venue was announced ???? Nah, surely not !?

    What currency?

    Huge thanks for the recommendation for Starling bank. That was an unbelievably good experience setting it up ! 2 and a half minutes and I have a full UK bank account with debit card in three days. That's including all the money laundering gumph done. If I went in to a high street bank I reckon it'd take me a week ! I always get stung by using my BofS card where I get a transaction fee, ATM fee / cash transaction fee if I use one and a crap exchange rate - this has probably saved me about 50 beers at Albanian prices so that'll be Friday's intake sorted !

    Airport transfer

    And after an hour before working out what you were on about I can safely say you've earned a red card for that !!!!不不不不

    If anyone's on the Vienna to Podgorica flight on the Thursday getting in at 2.30pm (or any other flight arriving about then) and wants a free taxi to the centre let me know as I've one booked and I'm arriving on my tod so 3 seats free. I'm no being exactly generous as it was only a tenner. Driver will be holding up my name so feel free to just cadge a ride then. I'm also getting a taxi Podgorica to Shkoder on the Friday leaving about 1.30 pm but I'm looking to get one happy to do one or two quick beer stops to see a couple of towns en route (Barney R - thanks for the tip on the taxi co.).

    Feck. I owe you a pint. I was half way through a stroppy text back along the lines of "what did you know understand he eejit. 不不不. Then I caught up !

    Ok, I'm getting a tadge worried as I only decided to go late as lone soldier cos the usual three lads cannae make it and have booked in to "the rose garden". Notice no mention of it on this thread ! !! So bit worrying ! I've no idea why I picked that place (apart from a vague recollection of a similarly named place in Belize). Anyone heard anything good or bad as can change ?

    Irnbruman - I'm jealous re the 瞿140 ! I ended up 瞿300 ! You going kilted on the Heathrow Vienna flight ? I usually do but thinking prob a bit pointless as it's on the Thursday and I'm on my tod. Maybe bump in to you for a beer at Heathrow back of 7 am !

    I've just booked as last minute decision. No cheap but really good connection times but this is from Heathrow - flying Austrian on the Thursday (but think Friday available too times) - Heathrow (9.05 - Vienna 12.20 leave 12.50 Podgorica 14.25) - I think half hour change is OK as all Austrian so I think they hold the flight. Way back Monday Podgrica 15.00 Vienna 16.40 17.15 arrive Heathrow 18.40. I think Pod much better than Tirana as there's a bus that takes 1 hour 10 and I think it's an hour by taxi. Anyone else arriving Podgrica Thursday ?

    Potential Party in Podgorica, Montenegro

    Lads, I've been swithering aboot whether to go to the game or no as the three pals I normally go with cannae make it but have finally decided to go to it as a "lone soldier". I get in to Pod mid afternoon Thursday via Vienna. Anyone else on that flight as I don't know whether to Kilt it or nae as starting from Heathrow ? - Are there a few still planning to meet up in Pod ? Did you settle on the Beer Academy ?

    Totally agree RenfrewBlue ! If the SFA are incapable of putting contracts together to keep the right guy locked in (or us suitably compensated) they shouldn't be there. It should be their number one priority. By the logic of some he (or anyone else) should do the job for free and turn down say 瞿2m per year contracts.

    It took me about an hour to understand how the nations league work but surely there must be a really good chance of us qualifying through that route ? We should win the group stage and then we need to win two games in a knock out format to qualify. I think from memory we also get home advantage in those two knock outs (that may be b@llocks).

    Excellent post Que Sera Sera ! I'm happy with McLeish (I thought we played better than you imply remembering we had the previous year' world cup winners, another semi finalist (Italy) and a quarterfinalist (Ukraine) and Georgia is a terrible place to go to play). Under Strachan have seen more progress than I have for many years. The players obviously loved playing for him and he picked ones that really played for the jersey. So very sad that fans such as several posting on here turned against him (some never wanted him and I have a feeling no matter what he achieved they would have hated him). Let's get this right - one lousy pass against England cost us the first win against them for years and a play off place and that was despite 1-the start of the campaign being marred by significant injuries to key players where we don't have the depth 2-us having a real lack of quality in key defence positions. I think the call to get him in to replace an SFA blazer isn't as ridiculous as it sounds - he isn't a man to keep quiet and two the line and would fight for change.
