Think I read you can bypass this requirement if you have a ticket
But then you probably have to be an England Travel Club member to get one.


Yeh a ticket counts as a visa, but the tickets have all been sold surely?

There is an interesting story of someone trying to use someone elses ticket to get in the ground. It doesnt end too great.


think there are further tickets to be sold


Probably in Germany.

They just interviewed an England fan out in Samara on breakfast news, making a thing about how he'd taken "days" to get out there.

Asked him about his journey and he said "I had to get a flight to Frankfurt then another flight out here"

Don't get me wrong, fair fooks, but it's hardly Timbuktu is it :?:

Did I hear it right that he said he had tickets for the quarter-final and final but would have to come home for work when the semi-finals are on?

Yeh seemingly so.

TBF, killing a week in some one horse Russian town probably isn't that gr8.

Sorry but the psychic otters at Beale Park have it down as a 3-0 win for Sweden.

Can't argue with that

1966

square and multiply each number

(1^2) x (9^2) x (6^2) x (6^2) = 1044976

divide by the number of years since we won it...52

1044976 / 52 = 2018.7

July 2018...c'mon that can't be a coincidence!

I think Gareth Southgate is well suited to international management. Honestly think that you don’t need a manager with a long list of club honours just someone who is respected, who is organised, who calmly makes a decision (right or wrong), happy to seek advice and, most importantly, isn’t to be cow-towed by present or past reputations and treats people as people

England are a few years from the finished article and despite missing players like Oxlade-Chamberlain have really dug in well, done what was expected of them and you couldn’t ask more of what we’ve seen for the most part. And, I think, the Belgium decisions and performance has been entirely vindicated as it’s helped the team grow stronger and bring the fans much more onside.

Defeat in the semi’s - wouldn’t that have been seen as more than acceptable in May?

Semi's is success no matter what. But. With this side of the draw, you don't make the Final and you'll always think "What might have been, if only we'd played at our level and beaten x"

I would love it, just love it, if we knocked Russia out in Moscow.

Just a thought, but imagine how potent going forward we could be IF the likes of Lallana, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Barkley and Sturridge were fit, in form and bought into this sides structure and work ethic.
