Through the border checks. Two hours so not as bad as some of the scare stories on here.

Ukrainian on here says it could be five hours on way back though
How much easier it is to be critical than to be correct.

Some lads who wave the banners at the front of the Kop have had their flag stolen today. They are all ok but if anyone sees it they would like it back...

"🇺🇦@callumpearce05

Just been attacked by 3 lads dressed in black, one took me down and robbed our flag, left my phone and wallet which was lucky, another one of the lads got smacked in the face, seems like they are only after banners. Happened just outside Shevchenko park police no where to be seen"

What the fuck is wrong with these countries robbing banners? I guess it's a badge of honour or something but fuck me, it's really pathetic on their part

Not really bumped up. Maybe in some places. Still get an omlette for just overy a quid. Beer prices range from 30 to 70 depending on where you drink.

Was paying 50p in Lviv for a pint. Seems to be closer to a quid in Kyiv.

Its been found....by a Man Utd site! ::) Obviously they are now loving it. Look at them though - with their man bags robbing banners from kids! Would love them to get their come-uppance 2moro!

I think it's also quite common with various Ultra-groups in other places like Germany. Loads of supporters steal each other's banners and then present them as some kind of trophy. They just hold or hang them upside down. In heated rivalries they even rip them apart or burn them during the game... It's rather sad...

Remember the Zenit shitbags doing it when Liverpool played there a few seasons ago . To make it even worse , think it was a memoriam type flag to a friend who'd passed away .

Good luck to all who endure the chaos that the Kiev flight controllers are going to unleash tomorrow. Hopefully it's not going to prevent people getting to the match.

More so, hopefully the chaos on Sunday morning won't be too insufferable because you'll all be celebrating.

Many of us will be with you in through, even though World Choice (and Myriad) have prevented us from being there in person. Sing a song for us. Loudly.

No trains as they were sold out coming from Poland weeks ago, buses may still be going from Kiev to Polish cities but will be torturous (especially if we lose) - if time/accommodation are no object I'd say fly back on Tuesday or Wednesday - unfortunately you're up against it because all "sensible" routes are booked up and ones that are less so will have been booked by desperate people and thus driving the prices up.

Maybe tweet TAW and see if they'll pick you up (semi serious here..)

Anyway good luck and hope you get sorted!

I ended up leaving that hostel as the landlady was doing my head in. She spoke no English and was speaking into her phone to translate. There was an 11pm curfew which made it impossible for me regarding the match. I'd speak to her phone to translate. I'd say closed at 11 then she would speak into it and the phone would say... the oven is closed. I picked up my bag and just walked out. Found a place on that FB page. Sound lad. Igor from St Petersburg and we got drunk last night. Hes just gone to meet Liverpools fans at the airport then we go to the city centre later.
