  1. I went to watch Fiorentina v Roma in October with my son, brother in law and nephew (we do an Italian or Spanish football trip that half term every year). We got print at home tickets direct through the club, I emailed them and they sent a few forms to fill out and email back. From memory it was cheaper doing that way than via the ticket agency. We got tickets for the curva fiasole which is the end their ultras are and made the mistake of strolling into the main ultra section which was very lively but they didn't take kindly to tourists being in there (fair enough). Eventually we made our way to the side of the end which was fine and was close to the atmosphere. The view is not the best (assume it's the same at the other end too). Must have been 50 metres from the pitch but that's the case with lots of Italian grounds. For bars and restaurants, you have your choice in Florence of course. There's not much near the ground though but it's only 20-30 mins walk into the centre. we spent the afternoon in an Irish bar in town which wouldnt normally be my cup of tea on a foreign trip but this place had a good blend of friendly fiorentina fans, people watching English football on tv and general tourists. Was a really friendly place with a good atmosphere - let me know if you want me to dig out the name. Have a great trip!
  2. We got back from Porto last night having had an amazing few days out there. Porto and guimaraes both beautiful cities and the vast majority of England fans enjoyed / respected them as they should - all the walking tours, boat trips etc we went on had loads of england fans on them clearly wanting to get a feel for the place which is one of the great opportunities that comes from following england away. I didnt see any of the trouble that's been reported but there was definately a large amount of young lads out there interested in getting as drunk as possible and interested in congregating in large numbers / being boisterous etc which is never good - I'd estimate a couple of thousand of the 20k out there. The problem with the 10% getting all the media attention is that it makes the 90% who are some of the most passionate football fans you'll ever meet who love football, travel and enjoying a few drinks whilst doing it question whether they want to be associated with it all - even though they know the reality of being there is very different to what's portrayed in the media. The last thing we need is for the majority decent fans to stop going and make the idiot few become more prominent. There needs to be more balance in the reports. I may have missed it but there doesn't seem to be much coverage of the hundreds of residents of guimaraes coming out onto the streets after Sunday's game clapping the england fans as they walked back to the station. This was old ladies, families etc and one of the best moments of my time watching football anywhere and I think reflected the fact that they respected the fact that so many turned up for a meaningless game on a Sunday lunchtime, created a carnival atmosphere in the town with (as far as I know) no trouble / flashpoints etc. There are so many good points about England's away following; there really does to be more balance in how it's understood and reported.
  3. We're doing Porto Dublin, Dublin Bristol on the way back on Monday with Ryanair. Was only £100 or so when booked not sure what it is now.
  4. Yes, 5 of us heading over Wednesday to Monday.
  5. You mean the most watched sporting event in the world?
  6. My brother in law and nephew are looking to get season tickets for next season. Does anyone know when they go back on sale? Sorry if this is in this thread somewhere already.
  7. Out to Portugal for 5 days for the Nations League - can't wait
  8. Me and 13 year old son on the train to Hull tomorrow lunchtime. Curry in Hull tomorrow evening and down the pub for 11am on Sunday.
  9. I think if you really did add it up versus the playing budget you need just to survive in the championship you would pretty quickly get your head around it.
  10. Don't know if anyone else saw it but there was a page on the official site 5 minutes ago saying Webster had won it. I clicked on it and it said the page wasn't available. Went back to the home page and its gone!!
  11. Only places I've had mine properly checked for certificates are Wigan this season and Kaliningrad in the World Cup. On the topic of flags in general, Villa was a first this weekend though in that they packed them up and took them to the car park for pick up without telling the owners or the stewards stood next to them!
  12. Thanks for confirming Matt.
  13. If anyone from the club is reading this (I don't know how to tag people I'm afraid) would it be possible to confirm this is correct- no kids prices. I want to buy mine and my son's tickets but don't want to pay over the odds if there's a glitch - as you say it's very unusual and the fact there's no explanation makes me question whether it's right.
  14. Anyone got a break down of goals scored at the south stand end v atyeo end this season? Only recent goals we've scored at the atyeo end I can remember are v Bolton.
