Those poor 'cunts' have usually followed the club home and away for 25 plus years and are pulling their hair out at the prospect of having to put themselves through the wringer whilst all the hangers on enjoy a pint before the game

Wow spare the sob story it aint Britains got talent

There was an extra UEFA sale today apparently. I only found out once they’d all gone. 
 

I assume they have a waiting list and only emailed the top X on it. 

My lad managed to get two from it. Made up for him

Btw the game in 81 was in Parc des Princes, where PSG play. Great stadium. This game is at the Stade de France, awful stadium.

I went to the PSG in 2018, I thought it was a bit of a dump.


Never been to Stade de France, never needed to! 
 

I see they are saying it’s going to be the largest police presence for a game ever at the stadium.

Its their national stadium so I imagine it needs continued use to make it worthwhile,like Wembley?

There have been many incidents inside French stadiums this year with crowd issues, that explains a large police presence indeed.

Last try from me to get rid of my outbound flight to Paris if anyone wants it, from Luton Airport 6am day of the game (direct flights from there are going for over £400 quid at the mo).

 

I just need to recoup some of the money I've paid so I'd be happy to sell at £150 - any takers?

The problem is they'll do a whole lot more than that. 

I've always taken the view and i have been all over watching us that it is pretty easy to not get any agg from bizzies here or even abroad.

 

OK there is definitely more risk abroad, and i have no doubt that innocent people have been (as i have seen it) and will get caught up in stuff but for me (mostly) trouble from the bizzies tends to come the way of people who are acting up or giving an excuse to attract it.

I've been all over with us. And have found the French police will do anything to provoke trouble. I've never had any issues anywhere else, just there. Paris, Lyon, Marseille and even auxerre. Bordeaux was alright iirc and I've had no issue in Lille, but I stayed in the pub and missed the match there!

This “fan zone” in the Cours de Vincennes should open at 2 p.m. on the day of the final, and will not only be reserved for Reds supporters, whether or not they have a ticket for the match. Pat-downs will be carried out to enter the area and musical entertainment is planned inside: two giant screens will be installed to broadcast the concerts that will take place in the afternoon. Food trucks and beer taps will also be available. The bill for the organization of these two spaces, Spanish and English, is paid by UEFA. As for the FFF, it has legal and operational responsibility.

A fan park with big screens showing the game makes perfect sense. 

 

I still can't believe Madrid let >100k pissed up supporters of english clubs loose into the city at 4/5pm (?) to watch the game in 2019. I'm still surprised & glad it didn't end in significant bother.

From SOS on the final allocation..

 


 
Firstly, we would like to thank the club for being so transparent and walking us through these ticket allocations at such a critical and busy time of the season. None of us wants to discuss such matters when we’ve all got Sunday to look forward to, but we don’t underestimate the level of concern for some of our members.
 
The club confirmed that they expect more tickets to be released to supporters in the coming days and that the final overall allocation breakdown will be very similar to that in Madrid in 2019.
 
The current 85% supporter allocation, which includes the general ballot (64%) and those supporters with contracts (21%), will rise further as we approach the final. It was noted that these are rounded numbers and should be considered when looking at the figures. The Club also confirmed that they have contacted UEFA for any additional tickets but we think any more will be unlikely.
 
We are now going to wait until after the Champions League final when we will meet with the Club again to review the final ticket allocations and continue the conversation regarding how tickets are allocated and sold to supporters.
 

We thank members for raising their concerns with us.

With regard to UEFA, we are aware that LFC asked for a fairer and greater allocation but no more tickets have been forthcoming and they don’t  expect any more to materialise. 

During the meeting, ironically, UEFA released a batch of tickets available to those who were initially unsuccessful in their first ballot. This highlights the basic problem: 12,000 UEFA tickets in a free-for-all ballot that should have been shared between fans of the finalists. 

It is clear that UEFA are adamant that this is how they want to operate and individual clubs are powerless to change this policy. We will continue to approach UEFA via Football Supporters Europe to lobby for a percentage of these tickets to be included in the finalists’ allocations. 

This includes the cost of tickets. We asked that Liverpool support our representations to UEFA to reduce extortionate prices in the future, as we will via Football Supporters Europe.

Regards,

Joe Blott

'Individual clubs are powerless?' Really? You know who could make a difference? Fans could force change if they wanted to,but don't.

Although I don't agree with the UEFA "free for all" ballot, Liverpool's is only marginally better...

Liverpool do not have a free for all ballot.

 

You needed to be a season ticket holder or a member with 6 european cup home games from this season bought and paid for on your record to be able to enter ballot.

 

Now whether that is best and fairest way to do it is a subject that can of course be debated.

    • Gerrard in this team would make Kevin De Bruyne look like a bum. He'd be the best player in the league by a mile.   Tactical discipline wouldn't be a problem for him because he wouldn't be playing for a defensively obsessed manager. I get where the whole "Gerrard isn't tactically disciplined" thing comes from, its because Rafa spoonfed that to people off the record for years.   Stevie was too swashbuckling to play centre mid in his system, but he'd be unreal playing in Klopp's.   Another factor in Gerrard's supposed tactical weakness was that he was often playing in shit teams where he needed to force the issue because nobody else would be capable of it. No point him sitting midfield and watching nothing happen in front of him. Of course he's not going to do that. Doesn't mean he has no tactical discipline, it just means he's a winner.   He played right back and was brilliant. He played holding midfielder and was brilliant. He played right midfield and was brilliant. He's since become a manager who builds his teams on being organised and defensively sound.   Gerrard in a midfield with Fabinho and either Thiago or Hendo would be un-fucking-believable.   And besides, there'd be nothing stopping us going with the same 4-2-3-1 he played in when he was just behind Torres.   If I could add any player from our history to this current team it's Gerrard. Even ahead of Suarez, and you know how much I love Suarez.
    • he newly appointed Chancellor and Warwickshire MP Nadhim Zahawi has created a sprawling £100 million property portfolio, along with his wife and their companies, the Mirror has reported. Mr Zahawi, who represents Stratford-upon-Avon, previously worked as Education Secretary, and before that rose to prominence as vaccine minister, helping to deliver the Government's rollout of the jab. © PA Nadhim Zahawi leaving 10 Downing Street following the resignation of Rishi Sunak yesterday His new role comes following the resignation of Rishi Sunak who quit as Chancellor having lost confidence in Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Mr Zahawi came to the UK aged nine after being born in Iraq to a Kurdish family, who fled the regime of Saddam Hussein.   Believed to be one of the richest politicians in the House of Commons, estimates of his net worth range from £30 million to £100 million. He has refused to confirm the amount, previously telling the Telegraph: "I've been very lucky in life." He helped found the polling company YouGov and along with his wife, owns a huge property empire, which includes a country home and stables, a £20 million London townhouse, a number of high-street properties and an industrial estate. A Mirror investigation previously found that more than half were purchased while Mr Zahawi was serving as a Government minister. Seven of the properties bought for over £10 million are mortgage-free, and two more were partially-funded by £10 million loans from Mr Zahawi's wife Lana. Read more: Chancellor Nadhim Zahawi: Everything you need to know about the Warwickshire MP The Zahawis personally own five residential properties, worth at least £17 million - three in London, one in Warwickshire (where his constituency is) and one in Dubai. The home near Warwick, a country house with stables, was bought for £875,000 in 2011. One of Mr Zahawi's firms purchased the £3.5 million Chunnel industrial estate in Ashford Kent, by the Eurotunnel train station, and his wife Lana Zahawi now owns two superstores, including a £6.3 million plot home to a giant Co-op and car park in St Neots, Cambridgeshire. Another company controlled by Mr Zahawi owns £18 million worth of land containing an Asda megastore in Brierley Hill, West Midlands. Since it was bought four years ago, its value has increased by £1.25 million. There is no suggestion that he has breached the Ministerial Code. In 2013 it was reported that Mr Zahawi had claimed the livery's £5822.27 heating bill on expenses, which he said he had done by mistake and repaid. At the time he posted a statement on his website saying: " Since last week's coverage of my energy bills I have been looking into them further and can confirm that all claims for heating fuel relate purely to my second home. " However I have made a mistake with my electricity claims. On investigation I have discovered that the electricity supply for a mobile home located in the stable yard and for the stables themselves was linked to my house. " Whilst a meter was installed in the stable yard I have only been receiving one bill, it was wrong to assume I was receiving two and to have not checked this sooner. I am mortified by this mistake and apologise unreservedly for it. " I will obviously be paying back any money that was wrongly claimed immediately and have already contacted IPSA [Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority] regarding the correct procedure."
    • Keir starmer please take note 
    • Well, if it wasn't for all those Jews he'd beaten up, I'd agree. That and the tattoo of a swastika is a dead giveaway.    I mean, it's crazy. I very much think he handled the whole situation poorly from a managerial perspective as LOTO, and I feel the report backed that up, but 'dangerous anti-Semite'. Okay bud. The entire thing has run rampant, and there's barely a middle road to tread where he's concerned. He's either the saviour of all things, or he's the devil. It's a myth. The fuckin' lot of it.
