To be totally honest, based on the time i've spent in Northern Ireland... if there is any bother, it's more likely to be because of the English than anything else.... :cry:

As for the Finnish group, I don't think it looks good....

True, how long do we have to wait for these world cup fixtures, i'm itching to go to that Estonia game now :lol: Hey Junot if your in Finland at the time you fancy coming along? I think its about €30 on the boat and the tickets can't be that much in Estonia (wont be Stamford Bridge prices anyway :-))

Of course I would be expecting the England fans to instigate things, singing no surrender and the like :!: Did you see the last England Ireland game? (well the 27 minutes of it?).

That sounds great, if I'm there :D
I will be in Helsinki about the third week of january for about 12 days if you fancy a pint sometime?
I've been to the finnish school at Sale today, we were playing customer- shopkeeper roles :cry: I presented a typical finnish shop - I didn't say very much and provided poor service :wink:

Jep always nice to meet a northerner here (there's not many of us about :-))

I've met one Geordie, a lad from Stockport, a Yorkshireman and one Cumbrian in my two years here ;-)

Edit and one of the other moderators is from Blackpool :oops:

However I reckon the Russia game could be lively. Do the national team play in Tallin?


Estonia, Latvia and Russia (again..) + slovakia..
Yep, I'll be doing the trip to Tallin or Parnu if I have the time and happen to be here. But still the game will be in one or two years, no hurries.
And I know for sure that other guys will be there although we haven't yet discussed it on our portuguese mailing list..

Its supposed to limit the disruption to the large number of league matches played in these countries. How convenient!
