Exactly it's great that the players celebrated the first two goals with the fans, but imagine playing out the rest of the game covered in stale beer !! If I was a player I'd be avoiding that situation.

Really not a fan of beer being allowed into the stands. Plenty of time for drinking before and after. 

Had to laugh at the lads picking up the empties for the deposits though, heard of lads walking out with a nice few quid at €2 a pop. 
Hang on they were offering rewards for the plastic cups coming back? 

It takes a big man to cry, but it takes an even bigger man to laugh at that man.

Thought it was a nice enough city, but there's not too much going on so I wouldn't be in a rush to go back. 
We met a local couple on Friday that suggested Urban, but on our way there discovered a club that was open till 3. Was lively enough too. 
Bus back to the city was good after the game too

Direct Ryanair flight home yesterday evening a lad took ill. Stewards were giving him CPR in the aisle and even had the defibrillator out as a precaution but thankfully he woke up eventually. Hopefully he's alright now. 

I want to know the lyrics to the Paul McShane (You're so Vein) song. Some laugh at that!!

As for the poor chap on the plane I couldn't really see what was going on but it looked like he may be having some sort of fit. Hope he's ok anyway. He was sitting up on the seat anyway ok but looked fasirly shook by it



That chap that took the fit was sitting behind me....it didn’t look good at one stage,never seen a person turn that grey/white colour before so quickly after passing out.fair play to the lad(think he was a nurse)who looked after him...hope the lads ok.

Wow we were sitting beside each otherLOL Thankfully the lad was sitting up but he was fair white looking

What a tune, flashbacks after the game on the bus

I was one of them I very seldom have more than 3 or 4 pints Matchday but something changed this trip maybe because it's been so long since my last on Georgia/Switzerland 2019. Remember very nothing of the game embarrassingly had plenty of pints in the ground something I'd never consider on Sunday and was given out about drink being served at the Portugal game something I don't agree with the Hypocrisy. Anyway it was a very good trip considering thought it be like Geneva in terms of liveliness. I do remember a taxi costing 50quid back into the city after the game though. On a side note for me it's probably the most Impressive stadium I've ever been in model for the league here but probably in Dreamland.

You will see metro North before you see a stadium like that in the league of Ireland.

Glad to hear it...I was a disgrace too. Very embarrassed...let loose from the kids for first time in a long time etc. but there's no real excuse. Starting at 5.30am was probably unwiseCry

Apologies to anyone I fell on. Fortunately, took myself home at half time as I thought the game was over...was quite confused hearing all the cheering from the stadium as I waited for the bus Ermm

So that's what happened to you? LOL

I know I got fed up with the lad on my left who was absolutely hammered, waiting for him to fall into me and send me flying so I moved to the back row for the 2nd half so I could actually watch the game. When the game finished, I was looking down to the same spot we had started the game at but you were nowhere to be seen. 
The nation holds it's breath...YES, WE'RE THERE!!!

I was in some Texas bar near Pyg on Saturday. Saw one or two from the forum. One in particular was "helping" himself to some complimentary Chupa Chups. Guinness was fantastic for the continent but the price was not. Strange group of lads singing songs about Adam Johnson too. Had a look at the Shamrock place but wasn't sold on it so ended up back at the hotel. Decent night
