The European Cup Final...again!
« on: May 8, 2019, 02:59:54 AM »
Here we go again...

For those that donít know, 7 or more will be guaranteed. Those on 6 will be in the infamous ballot.

Thankfully we took a punt and booked our flights back in June and then got lucky as I hit refresh at the right time as a City fan must have literally just cancelled!

Loads of ways to get there though, literally loads.

i watched the chelsea game at my sisters. her 12 year old son is severly autistic and i forgot myself and jumped up screaming at the goal and he went nuts. screaming and shouting. scared the fuck out of me. apologised to my sister as i thought id upset him, turns out he was joining in.

Took a gamble a couple of months ago on flights and accommodation.  Doing Stansted to Nuremberg to Madrid, 3 nights in Madrid and return via same route.   Flights 110 Euros each, well pleased.

Did it for the World Cup in Germany. Didn't hire it but just parked in a random car park. Was really good.

How are you getting back? Flights getting there seem to be fairly OK - coming back is another issue  ;D. I booked a £170 direct to Madrid via Air Europa (seems sold out now). Coming back. F&ck knows.

Thursday Morning - Man > Alicante
Friday morning - Train > Madrid
Sunday morning train back to Alicante and fly home.

Flights and train £450

Have you got accommodation in Madrid sorted? We're flying to Alicante but renting a car instead of the train with the intention of sleeping in the car Saturday night as reasonable accommodation in Madrid seems non-existent.

When you flying back ? we've booked a hotel in Albacete for the Saturday night 80 euros - it's about 2 hours drive from Madrid, and then an hour and a half drive from there back to Alicante on the Sunday

Ive booked a holidayí to Spain and got a train to Madrid.

Under £400 with 4 nights accommodation.

Best staying well away from Madrid, those hotels are extortionate. Spain has a decent railway system linking the major cities.

Ok, you may have to rough it on the night of the game but I slept on the floor in Kiev airport! Reckon my back is still done in after that  :D

No fucking about this time. Just got myself on the Sports Options Flight 1 Day trip out of Manc land

Yeah £650 is quite expensive but infinitely cheaper than Kiev was.  I hear lads are paying around 4 ton now to get there and hotels in Madrid are basically non existent.

Interest free Credit card so it can sit on there for a while. Fuck it!! :)

I hear Airport is really close to the ground so no mad rush after game or worries about ET/Pennos.

Get in. Can't wait.
