  1. Gibraltar will be a case of us getting as many tickets as we want, there's a real lack of cheap flights for an in and out job and it's weeks before the Euros. I reckon both will go to 0 points but Gibrlatar is an absolute cert.

    The problem is you've got to take Bannigan over the piece. If we're selectively picking out only part of someone's tenure Osman or Barton would be in the team of the quarter century and Keown would have a decent shout.

    Bannigan pre-injury is so far ahead of Docherty he'd need to have spent the last few seasons actively scoring own goals against us in order to bring him down to a level where this is even a debate.

  3. The exact same thing happened to me last summer in Germany @Billy Jean King and I couldn't figure it out but I got both trains on my booking just fine. Assumed it's an automated thing that happens if either train changes at all even if it's something that doesn't impact your part of the journey.

  4. It's not something he's done in a while but there's been a couple of windows where one of the two hasn't been available. He started both against Ukraine in the playoff, away to Austria, at home to Israel and 2 of the 3 games at the last Euros so it's clearly something that's in Clarke's thoughts when it comes to a certain type of big game.

    Slight tangent, but why are Lithuania and Gibraltar not clear which league they're in?

    There's 4 groups in League C but only 2 in League D so originally the 4 teams that finished bottom of their groups in League C should have had play-offs with the 2 losers getting relegated and replaced by the 2 League D group winners.

    Due to Russia being in League B when the 22/23 draw was made but now being punted out they only needed 1 team to be relegated from League C to ensure both Leagues B and C had 16 teams so the 2 worst placed teams from League C Gibraltar and Lithuania are having a play-off with the winner staying up and the loser being relegated.

    Anyone know the likely venues for Croatia and Portugal? Or when the venues will be confirmed?

    They have up until 120 days before to announce but a lot of FAs ignore the rule.

    Croatia is anyone's guess, of their last 10 competitive games 2 have been Zagreb, 3 Osijek, 4 Split and 1 Rijeka. The stadium in Zagreb was damaged back in 2020 by an earthquake but their last competitive match was there so I'm not sure if that means they've sorted it out as the majority of their games were played in Zagreb before that.  Portugal is about 90% going to be in Lisbon or Porto based on their recent competitive games but they do like to move the occasional game and played Spain in Braga.

    Can you remember how much the match package was last year for the North Stand? I can’t get logged onto the website to check. I appreciate we‘re in with the big boys now but I don’t recall it being that much. 

    I have a great seat in the North Stand I’d hate to give up but £35 for two friendlies and I can’t make the Portugal game anyway is making me think twice. 

    £125 East/West and £150 North/South for the 2023 package which was 4 competitive games plus England so it's went up £25 and 2 of the 5 are friendlies.

  8. League C
    Group 1 - Sweden, Azerbaijan, Slovakia, Estonia,
    Group 2 - Romania, Kosovo, Cyprus, Lithuania/Gibraltar
    Group 3 - Luxembourg, Bulgaria, N. Ireland, Belarus
    Group 4-  Armenia, Faroe Islands, N. Macedonia, Latvia

    League D
    Group 1 - Lithuania/Gibraltar, San Marino, Liechtenstein
    Group 2 - Moldova, Malta, Andorra


  9. Slightly less mention of this than normal due to the fact we've got a Euros in Germany to win but the draw is on Thursday and we're League A for the first time so thought it was worth a thread.

    Draw is on Thursday at 5pm UK time and live on UEFA.com. Format has changed this year with top 2 from the group going into the Nations League quarter finals, 3rd going into a playoff with 2nd placed teams from League B for promotion/relegation and 4th being relegated.



    Italy, Hungary and Poland for me please.

    I’ve got another train question.  

    I’m booked on Eurostar back from Brussels on the day after the Hungary - to get there I’ve to travel from Stuttgart to Frankfurt on the ICE which requires a seat reservation.  I assume those reservations are not yet available to buy yet cos there seem to be none available…. Anyone any ideas?


    Select 'Book seat only'  You'll get a seat reservation for 4.90 euro. 

    To use ICE trains you don't need a seat reservation unless it's some condition of your Eurostar ticket but I imagine most trains from Stuttgart the day after the game will be mobbed so it might be worth it.
