Ah crap that sucks mate, sorry. Are you in the re-ballot, at least? Did you get the tickets before COVID? I can't remember when qualification even ended for these Euros?!
I'd give a whole lot to be in a ballot for Wales games in our home country. We've really had the rotten end of the stick.

Yeah there is a re-ballot - but obviously won't end up with as many tickets. I had 7 games, including all the group games for England at 50 euro each in Cat 3, chances are I might get one in the re-ballot at Cat 1 so about 200 euro which would be just my luck. If that's the case I think i'd watch it in the pub with mates instead!

I think I got the tickets in December 2019, it was bloody ages ago, the refund is due this week and the re-ballot next week so see what I end up with. The last qualification game was away in Kosovo in November 2019 - which was one of the best trip i've ever done to be fair.

Yeah, you've been stitched up. Baku, Baku, Italy in Rome isn't it?

Baku is on the Silk Road, Asia. Capital of one of the former Soviet republics, one of the 3 fabled cities of the East in antiquity, along with Bukhara and Samarkand. Thank you for your enquiry. :ds:

I wasn't commenting on how interesting a destination Baku is, I meant "stitched up" as it's more of a ballache of a trip for the Welsh team. Especially considering we have all three group games at Wembley.

Indeed, and I've been to Baku before. Not a whole lot to write home about and it's an arseache to get to out of a pandemic.

Reckon England have a very good chance this year.

Ours went on sale yesterday, a shade over 3100 available.
Managed to get three today without hassle.

In an exciting twist :whistle:, I'm not in on or near my usual West Stand seat though, so for the first time ever I'll be in the away end, no less. I'm assuming the dribble and urine from the Mansfield fans will have been cleaned up by now?

You seemed to think it's in Italy. :dk:

No, I don't? Because I said "Baku, Baku, Italy in Rome?" That's the order of the destinations of Wales' group matches. Keep up, lad.

The restrictions being placed on football are just ridiculous. How are we still only at 25% capacities with the virus at such low rates and nearly everyone over 40 vaccinated?
In fairness, it’s more accurate to say that most over-40s have received a jab rather than have been fully vaccinated. However, you’re right about the inconsistencies.

I’m also in there too. 3rd time for me I think - Fleetwood @ home promotion game and Salford @ home the other year when they did the £10 tickets. We’ve won both :D

Opening day of the season? Was red hot and trouble galore. A lad I know broke his leg outside the ground FFS

Welsh pilot events have been announced.

8 in South Wales, 1 in Powys. Wrexham have been turned down. Welsh Labour has never cared about the North though.

Sirki Dembele's debut too and he ran the show. Probably the highlight of our season on day one that! Was that the season you lot went down?

Yeah that’s the one, I left that game honestly thinking that both Grimsby and Chesterfield would be in the play offs at least that season. :ohm:

Might have been, I know we virtually went down at your place in the April after chucking in the towel

Not sure whether it'll be difference at NL, I doubt it will be, but as it stands, for the EFL PO's we've got staggered entry and exit times, produce a negative test before entry and wear masks whilst you're in there and you'll be allocated a random seat rather being near your season ticket one.

No staggered entry time for us. Can get tickets in groups of 1, 2 or 3. Nothing about wearing masks either. We got out tickets in groups of 3, with gaps in between each group. Could pick the stand, just not seats but we did ask for 9 of us to be on the same row

We were there for the taking that day too, 20 games without a win before it and if you’d have beaten us you’d have been one point behind us with 3 games in hand and yet for some reason Lester set you up to play for a point and it backfired.

We absolutely stunk the place out that season. I still refuse to blame Lester for the relegation and instead point the finger at the most incompetent manager we’ve ever had in Gary Caldwell (and yes, that list includes Dean Saunders).

That squad Caldwell and his mate Branston recruited the summer previous got to go down as one of the worst ever assembled at league 2 level... and it showed :ffs: :lol:

I had you down as favourites that season too and even after that first game of the season when we beat you I still thought you would be in the Auto’s because you created so many chances that day but luckily for us you kept missing them.

That’s what happens when you have a strike force of Chris O’Grady and Gozie Ugwu :ffs:

Because football fans are notoriously anti-social, unruly ,liable to shout and sing projecting bodily fluids, and get too close when they have had a few bevvies.
If we had behaved in a more responsible way pre-COVID, the general public would have a bit more sympathy.

Nonsense. If that’s how you feel stop reading The Sun.
