We had a 3 hour train journey from Aarhus to Copenhagen for a 10.15am flight morning after game. Early train and head town!
I could agree with you but then we'd both be wrong.

yeah I was on the 4:10am train out of Aarhus. I don't see a train leaving early enough to give sufficient time to get to the airport for a 9am flight though. Really hope the game is held somewhere else!

The only way of getting to Zurich at that time is getting the first flight from Geneva to Zurich, currently 96 Euro with SwissAir. 
You can get a train, but it involves a three hour stopover in Biel in the middle of the night.
you were probably told to leave an Irish centre one night but kept mouthing off and some big church going Gaa player f**ked you out the door hence your hatred for the Catholic Church and Gaa aswell!

Yeah it could be easier to just book a new flight or plead with Swiss Air to allow me change the time and pay a few bob for the pleasure. 

Or as Ringerbell says, maybe car hire might be the shout. Hopefully the quality of football is better than we've been getting and the beer anesthetic is not required.

The article says Berne is not popular with the manager due to its plastic pitch. It may not get any games.

I'd hold off on booking anything. We've no confirmation that it's here. Most booked Zurich with decent flight times as it's easy to get anywhere from Zurich except if you've flights early in the morning. 

There are afternoon flights to Dublin with Swiss air

You can get a flight from Geneva to Dublin for cheaper than the flight to Zurich, at five in the evening too, with AerLingus. Might be easier to cut the losses.

Sure he would have nearly everywhere covered with those two! Maybe throw in a flight from Milan too.

The games not for 10 months away yet no need to panic book flights till the venue in confirmed.

 If those people that are doing the double header get a flight from Georgia to Switzerland or surrounding areas on the Sunday/Monday they be able to get to other possible venues for match day and then book a flight home once venue is confirmed

Maybe, just maybe lads book flights because they are cheap. Switzerland is small, there should be no panic no matter where you booked if you gave yourself enough time.

Exactly it has one of the best train networks in Europe, doesn't really matter where you fly to.
