Had a great time bar the match but that's just the usual at European aways! Saw the big tourist stuff, and made up how late all the bars stay open. Too many cities seem to close way too early in the week. Bars staying open till 5am on a Tuesday/Wednesday is great, wish it was the norm.


That Metro after the game was a disgrace though, not thought out at all, especially after we'd been kept in for 30+ minutes as usual and the trains stop at 12:30 with some of us needing to get 3 across the city. People could have easily got hurt, it was getting pretty tight towards the front and the divvy police/stewards had no intentions of using common sense and just opening the gate. So 2000 people are stuck trying to buy tickets from 3 machines and get through 4 turnstiles before the metro shuts.

Good trip all round though, loved the Van Dijk song going off so much in Boss (not sure about the Firmino one), but feeling it today

Went in 301 first half, couldn't get up any higher, so stuck in middle. Moved to 302 second half, quite a few empty seats.

Was in 102. Was quite a few who didn't have a clue and were trying to sit in their actual seat and asking people to move.

Had a great time bar the result. Done plenty of tourist stuff and had a decent amount of ale.

Probably sums it up this. The game got in the way of a good trip again....

Hoping that the horror will recede,
Hoping that tomorrow we'll all be freed.........JUSTICE.

Loved every second of the trip, apart the game, although it was great atmosphere from their side, which made it enjoyable.  Sadly too many people in our end that don't give a damn about singing and supporting.

Seeing Mona Lisa on Thursday was one thing off the bucket list for sure, there was no queue outside Louvre and it's free entrance for under 26 year olds. So in and out of Louvre in about 20-25 mins  ;D

Has the Mona Lisa got any bigger? I was truly shocked first time I saw it, after what I could only describe as hype.

If you ever get chance Musee D'Orsay is great. The building alone...

You’ve done well there we didn’t get a beer for less than double that the whole trip.

Great trip.
Great city.
Rubbish footy.
Oddballs in our end.
Just hoping we have another game in Feb and it's a CL game.


P.s. There was touting on a ridiculous scale for that game. People were just there to be seen, and lots were in massive groups.

Not bad at all.. we went to a bar on the other side of the price spectrum before the match.
3 double vodkas, 3 red bull & 2 pints... €121  :-\

Bit late, but we went to Lush Bar and, bar the result (obvs !) had a cracking night.  Amazed at the amount of French LFC fans there and was well worth the trip even without seeing the game.

Really hoping for Dortmund in last 16 for a number of reasons including I fancy a trip there as well  ;)

We were just above and to the left after having to go in the home end (lots of tourists there to see Neymar so not too hostile)
