    I always enjoy seeing the criteria for European games. It's nearly always way off. If you don't need ID it will sell out before it reaches the end of that initial criteria on around 18k, if the ticket is tied to the persons name on the card used to buy it, it will go down to around 14k.

    Must be about 15 lads on our coach over 60 that have been going for years. Only 2 can get anywhere near that.

    I'm hoping the club have got it wrong and it will drop much lower than 17000.

    I think it’ll go lower than that despite the relatively small allocation. £49 a ticket and Switzerland isn’t the cheapest nor liveliest of places either.

    Also the fact that we’re likely to progress so maybe blues will look to reserve funds for the quarters?

    I reckon it will be quite lively the day we're there.

    I think it will sell out fairly high because there's lots of transport options and people put off by places which have a bad reputation for violence are likely to go. Also all the people on high points will buy them for their mates if they're not going themselves. There's no mention of photo ID checks at the ground or any checks at all on who will be using the tickets. Looks like I'm out then.

    So are we thinking no collect in person for this one then?

    I can't remember whether or not it was announced at the same time as the allocation criteria last time we had to collect in person?

    Will sell out very quickly. Tickets price is expensive, but let’s face, not as expensive as 6 hours spent in a Swiss pub beforehand. The whole trip is not cheap. I assume there is no ID requirement or it will be announced before the first ticket goes on sale.
