ACLE poster on here messaged me from Madrid last night

Apparently Metro line 2 is fucking closed and its unclear if it will be open on Saturday.  This is the line that runs from Goya (LFC fan park) to Las Rosas (stadium)

Surely to god they will have that sorted for match-day?

It’s back open today.

Thinking off passing my tickets to my mate tonight in case the pricks at Thomas Cook  fail to get us there. Will collect them off them if we get there. They fucked Spurs fans over too. 1.30 pm from Stansted.

I’m in 436 and am thinking of walking back to the airport as I have a 335am flight. Happy to walk back with anyone.. if you want to pm me your numbers, I can start a Whatsap group. Just getting on a plane now, give me a few hours.
By the way, I haven’t done any research really, someone a few pages back suggested getting the spurs line in the opposite direction to the centre 2 stops (Alemada de Osuna) which knocks 20 mins of the journey, but I’m open to suggestions and easily led 😂
Just hoping 4g works after the game otherwise this idea is probably waste of time.

All of them do! We’re the only ones without! Not blaming them as not many would turn down a ticket but is a bitter pill to swallow when you’re without with all the homes for donkeys

Worked fine. Oddly they wanted to see everyone’s return boarding cards too but that didn’t stop three lads getting on the wrong plane and two women who thought they were on an easyJet flight to Barcelona

A few who sit round by us had no intention of going the final but entered the ballot, and were
going to give their tickets to relatives who hadn’t been a game all season or even years but who
wanted to go the final.

Yeah whilst a lot of us who’d gone to all the home games are stuck watching it on the big screen. No way should someone be able to pass on tickets...should be ID to get in to these things. No way would I give a ticket to someone if I couldn’t go. I stayed away from the last Europa League ballot as I knew I couldn’t go as it gave a fellow red a chance who’d actually been the games 

Safe journey for all out in Madrid  ;D
