Twice is enough in Albufeira and the stadium is in a poxy location. 

f**k that. Gibraltar is a kip full of weird little Englanders and sqaudies.  The pitch is a joke and the memories of Jeffiesta celebrating by giving it the big one to an airport runway are still too raw.

100% this LOL. He also got annoyed after I threw ball back onto pitch during game causing ref to blow up until it was cleared. Kicked it into ad signs with mighty boot. Best f**king pass he has played in last seven or eight years

Just coming around now, had a really heavy day of drinking on Tuesday that started in Eddy's about 11am and finished in Vegas Bar about 4.30am. Hotel receptionist waking me up at 6.30am to say our airport transfer was waiting outside Dead. Tbf some lovely spots around Albufeira old town and the bars and restaurants and very reasonably priced. Definitely not the worst spot in Europe we've played games in.
time is the stuff that life is made of, don't waste it.

Was kicking off on that no. 7 bus back to Erin's Isle last night. Some proper eijits causing trouble, loads of people were left behind. Bit of a sh*t show tbh

Was on the No 2 bus and didn't even get checked for my ticket when I got on. The bus wasn't even in the spot it dropped us off in LOL


There was literally one bus where we were dropped off and we all piled on. Great few days anyway, Albufeira has it 

Landed home last night, great trip. First time in the Algarve so rented a car and travelled on the days either side of the game. Some lovely spots to see.

Re. the buses, I was a coach guide and was told by the driver (via Google translate) that the bus would pick us up from the point of drop-off so I waited there with several others post-game. Only one bus was there and it was packed. Became evident that the other buses weren't coming so we all made our way to the other side of the stadium where we found the buses parked. Driver informed me (again via Google translate) that police wouldn't let buses collect from the point of drop-off, exception being that one bus which had managed to get through or else just didn't leave during the game. My bus was already filled but some who had valid tickets were standing outside the bus as they had no seats. They were very annoyed (understandably) and insisted that I remove anyone on the bus who hadn't a ticket. I politely asked but no one budged. After a bit of a stand-off and heckling from some of those already on the bus, eventually everyone just piled on in the end. Very messy situation so hope all made it back safe and sound.

If someone had of set up a burger van outside that stadium on Monday they’d have made serious bank. The hot dogs that were on offer inside were an absolute disgrace LOL

Beer and food stall on one side of the stadium did well. Charging €5 for a beer but could have easily sold them for €10.

Van set up on the side of the road outside the stadium? Surprised they’d be selling non alcoholic beer.

I think the van outside was alcoholic beer but definitely inside they were only handing out 0% cans. 

Jesus lad that Dominos bar in Old Town was unreal. I'll be paying the price for heavy nights in that spot for a week.
