Slept for maybe 3 hours. Was worried if I fell asleep proper I'd sleep through my alarm!! Could not get hold of any taxis on the phone and no cars o uber so walked a bit and got the number 50 to Euro Airport. Less than 3 euros! Basel to Dussledorf left late which resulted in me missing my connecting flight to Frankfurt. Lufthansa put me on one an hour later and ended up back in London earlier than originally planned! Could do with having tomorrow off to be honest but need to go in.

I was a bit hesitant at going alone but met loads of friendly people around the Barfutzplattz square and some other long street. Was sat in D7 with a bunch of Dortmund fans, all getting involved. Not sure if they were there for Klopp or just to see us play in a final?

Saw some scuffle with a Seville fan on the way into D, then not long after the nonsense down the bottom. Took the riot police long enough to get there. Also saw some poor lads refused entry at the electronic scanner thing, presumably fake. I thought they would have checked for that sort of thing on the previous checks before you actually get into the stadium.

Me and my lad got home about 20 mins ago, another great Euro away trip, another shite Euro away performance by the Reds, great to see all the usual faces out there......as for all the whoppers out there the less said the better.

Absolutely knackered now.

No Euro aways next season but pretty sure Jurgen will have us back in there the season after,

Well knackered, me and the misses got home about half hour ago. Seemed to take forever to get home.
Had great time though apart from the obvious. O well can't win them all, I suppose. Please please let some good times (and trophies) Come our way very soon.
Nice to meet Ralph (thepooloflife), hope you got home safely mate. 👍

We'll have 3 transfer windows before we next play in Europe, a lot will have changed by then. Europe will fear us once again.

Seems like a proper and right thread to do it:

Thanks everyone who I met this season even for briefly. You are the reason this trips have been so good! As a foreigner, I dont get to meet many great lads as you are. The pain of defeat will dissapear sooner or later, but those euro away memories will never die. So thank you all very very much!!

So sad to think that there will be no euro aways next year, those really are something different. Course there will be domestic games, but you cant beat bevving 3 days in a place you havent been before.

Thanks again and hope to see many of you again next year!!

We said the same. Can't remember the exact number but been to about 30/35 Euro aways and we've only seen them win about 5 or 6 times...

Reckon the 17 of us who had our flights cancelled from Stockholm last night are the last home. Had to drive rental cars for 8 hour hours  to Copenhagen overnight to catch a flight back to Manc. Crazy crazy journey but glad there was a big group of us together

Not quite mate, if you look back a page there's a member (redandy) put a post up saying he's not leaving Basel until tomorrow (Saturday). Poor Sod, hope he's has taken some of the sights in? After all it looked a nice place from what I see of it.

Easily. Aside from the designated Sevilla section the rest were all reds, with a few Dortmund fans mixed in as well.

Great trip, until those second 45 minutes. Arrived Tuesday afternoon, good fun in the Square on Tues night and obviously Wednesday.
Expensive as fcuk though.

The League aways will have to suffice next season with no European games.

Had a great time out there, lovely place I thought and every local I come across was brilliant and friendly. The way the girls say "your welcome" in their Swiss accent is  :thumbup

Was a bit boring on the Thursday night once everyone had gone home, seems more of a chill night out type of place rather than a crazy one. Good fun though, nice people, nice buildings, river etc.

Agreed, no one had a clue what was going on which just leads to unrest. Seemed completely pointless too as it certainly wasn't for checking tickets or bags. Saw several people including kids getting quite panicky about it all.
Rafa Benitez: "I'll always keep in my heart the good times I've had here, the strong and loyal support of the fans in the tough times and the love from Liverpool. I have no words to thank you enough for all these years and I am very proud to say that I was your manager. Thank you so much once more and always remember: You'll never walk alone."

Unreal trip but fuck me I am desperately trying to rid that 45 minutes out of my mind.

We went to the ground around 5ish and bevvied outside using that petrol station so didnt see hte chaotic scenes but knew it would happen.

Not sure how long it will take to get over that. Horrible.
