Those of us with young children in the back seat of our cars are naieve enough to think that a 'baby on board' notification will stop other drivers behind driving like complete and utter Cunits.:wallbash:

But why ? Why on earth would you believe that? The sort of people who drive like that tend not to take great notice of any sort of sign.

If anything, because it's so annoying it's therefore likely to cause them to even more drive aggressively.

Mine is related - getting into the portal and having to do approx 600 captchas as tickets kept becoming unavailable whilst I clicked them. I did manage to get a ticket for Wales v N.Ireland though, so won't grumble too much.

Well done for getting one though. What details did you need and how many could you buy?

Thanks!

You could buy 4, but actually getting 4 into your cart would have proved impossible I think (unless you had a bot to purchase or you got very lucky early on).

I was still registered from the initial ballot, but you needed to provide your passport/photo ID number (you need to show this when you pick up the tickets).

A friend got back recently and said it was easy to buy tickets outside metro/train stations for games, but I suppose it'll depend on the fixture/capacity.

I'm flying over with a couple of mates...staying in Paris on the Sat night. We couldn't get 3 tickets together, but managed to get a single and 2 together. If you fancy a beer or two in the fan park over the weekend, shoot me a PM! Good luck with the ticket search.

I think you may be out of luck unfortunately. Site is showing none are now available. Italy v Spain was up there earlier, I didn't notice availability though.

http://www.uefa.com/uefaeuro/ticketing/index.html

Depending on stadium size, I reckon you could get a ticket from a tout over there for not a massive amount more...but it's obviously a gamble. If you do go that route, let me know and I can send you over some photos of tickets to help weed out any fake ones.

That's unusual - historically it is the other way around... wives giving husbands gyp/gip/jip for wanting to spend $700 for a football match!

Having said that my wife was very supportive in my Cup Final adventure/expenditure.

Where does this "getting rid of immigrants" come from? As far as I was aware it is more a case of taking control of the number of immigrants and whether or not they would be of likely benefit to the UK rather than a no questions asked uncontrolled open door policy? Do you have an issue with that?

I take it you haven't watched any form of british news programme today and listened to interviews with 'local people'? If you had, you would know what i'm talking about.

I don't agree with an open door immigration policy either if that can be defined properly, but i do have an issue with people of very limited awareness sounding off about 'immigrants taking their jobs' when the only reason they are doing them is because they wouldn't get out of bed to do them in the first place.
