    Got some really good mates that are Spurs mate and unlike many saints fans I've got time for you. Living in London made me realise Spurs are very much a London club, compared to a plastic one like arsenal.

    Anyway that aside they've all told me how much fun it is - and to watch my back in Rome - I made Steua last time so I know the feeling, and it's why I'm not missing this one.

    Oh and plus, easy stop off in Amsterdam? Can you get a better draw (football aside)?

    Only disappointing thing for you boys is that the allocation is supposedly only around 1,200.

    Should be a cracking experience with the numbers travelling but fingers crossed you can get some tickets. I think you'll get through but it's probably the toughest unseeded time there and you're away in the second leg so a potential stinker.
    Saints are the favourites though and you'd think there's enough experience of the Dutch league with your manager/squad that you'll know what to expect.

    The plus is that they've sold two of their best players. I really hope we qualify this time.

    I'm personally confident on tickets did 8 aways last season, plus a season ticket holder. Know a fair few going without and hoping for the home end.

    As for results I don't know enough about them to comment but it'd be typical saints to go out at the first past

    That's shit mate. Sounds like a lot of ours are buying tickets in the home end already I wouldn't be surprised to see 3k plus out there to be honest

    So it sounds like the Dutch police are kind of sanctioning an unofficial away end for us. Probably a good move as they would've had it anyway

    Hi all.
    Long time away from the site, for no reason just seemed to dissapear from it.

    Anyway booked flights and hotel in Arnhem.
    Just hoping I get an away ticket, otherwise its in with the home fans.

    Did Bucharest which was a brilliant away trip.... Hope this is too.


    Cheers

    I've been to Amsterdam and if you haven't been before then you'll love it. Very clean city and on the whole the dutch are very friendly! So jealous i'm not able to make it. I'll be genuinely devastated if we don't qualify!!

    There's an announcement later today on tickets, it's worth giving the ticket office a call to check aways too at least one mate of mine has had his number of aways ballsed up by the club but a call go it reinstated

    Got my away end tickets this morning, decent sized group of us out there (looks like between 8-15 depending on some who are thinking of driving without tickets) only 6 of us have tickets in the away end currently but most have already bought in the home end anyway as back up.

    Also seen it's sold out tomorrow, should be a decent atmosphere and glad the club got the ticket pricing right. Really looking forward to this one, been a while since we've had European nights at Saints.

    Very similar to our group. We have around 16 going but only 6 away stand ticket between us, but around a dozen home end tickets as back up. Will be selling the spares in the bars on wed and Thursday.

    Our lot are travelling in from all destinations... Stanstead, Birmingham, Gatwick and the tunnel.
    Some in Amasterdsam on Wed but most in Arnhem for Wed and Thursday night.

    With or without a ticket, does not really matter. Its just being away in Europe following the SFC and enjoying the occassion.


    Look out for COLSLAW flag in Arnhem.


    Cheers.
