There’s only been 2 European champions since Greece and the other has games. 

Hoping for Portugal as well. Like many others, biggest UEFA team I’ve not seen us play.

Thank goodness that has been explained thought I was losing my marbles.

Ok let me make my point in a more straightforward way to satisfy the pedants.

Other than Greece (and even that’s debatable) the most boring European Champions ever.

Euro04 was great.  France v England 2 late goals was sooo funny.  Beckham s penalty in orbit v Portugal.   Some awright games and our greek friends winning instead of some big gun.. Gives us all hope.

Albania consider their greatest victory ever to be against Greece in the latter's first game as European Champions.

It was a WC 2006 qualifier in Tirana - Albania 2 Greece 1. I'm reliably informed by locals who were present that the party was only called off after a week.

There's a certain parallel............

Why should they chuck the season tickets? If you know you can make all the games then it makes it easier to book as one bundle. Not keen on them including friendlies as I can't guarantee I can make them but they could make 2 different packages including and excluding the friendlies.

The idea of a season ticket is to add value to the regular attendee rather than (from memory) last time they did it not actually represent any discernible savings. That and if you get stuck near an absolute weapon you know you can't move next time.

Croatia have announced a match v Jordan for November, so that leaves Portugal and us as the only two UEFA teams without a game, so it's either them or a non-UEFA team.

It looks like none of the South American teams have arranged friendlies, nor have most of the North American or Asian teams. We'll probably end up playing the USA or Australia.

While there is every chance of a non-UEFA team, I would imagine that all signs point to a game v Portugal.

I would imagine if it wasn't a UEFA team the bulk of the squad would have to be playing in Europe.

While very possible, I suspect that is who the SFA have eyed up to latch on to the Nations League Season Ticket (a 4 game package including Belgium and Portugal is more appealing than just Israel and Albania).

Also given  A LOT of fans will have booked for Israel, it will be unfair to spring up an away game at this late stage when everyone is already booked to come home from Tel Aviv.

Would there be a chance of an evening ko on a Sunday ?

Just checked UEFA kick off times for Sunday’s, 2pm, 5pm and 7:45pm, from those 3 I would say 7:45pm is the most likely one, but suppose what TV companies offer in terms of a deal.
