Yous planning on flying down? Cheapest return flight I’ve saw is £115, will probably go up nearer the time as well.
Flights are £45 going down. It’s coming back that’s a problem, flying Edinburgh is an option. The sleeper is about £75 but it might be cutting it fine to get from Stansted to Euston.

Flying Wednesday coming back Friday from Cologne. 350 all in include accommodation booked up. Maybe a risk. Here’s hoping that Progres coming through alright.

Wouldn’t go booking anything yet folks. If Dudelange get put out the champs league qualifiers (2-2 after the home leg) they’d drop down to the Europa. Could be an issue for our game.

Have to wait and see what Dudelange do now as they drop down from the Champions league and are scheduled to play at home on the same night in Luxemburg.

No I think they were the only ones to get a bye to go into third qualifying round(unlikely now obviously). If Dudelange beat then they go into second qualifying round.

We’re going to be doing the minibus from Greenock to Luxembourg again. Straight down to Dover the night before, head from Calais to Luxembourg and have the overnight there before doing the return again.

What's details on this mate? Longs the journey?

@Yorkhill_True_Blues
When we done it last time we left Greenock at 6pm the night before the game, got the Euro Tunnel at Folkestone at 6am, we were in Luxembourg at the hotel for lunch time.

Had the day and overnight in Luxembourg, drove to Calais and missed the Euro Tunnel, had to wait for the later one. Got blootered in France and nearly got kept in the country but managed it home to Greenock about 3am the Saturday.

Was an adventure mate no doubt about it!

Could be tempted but I done Stuttgart 10 years ago and I am still scarred. The bus back was an experience. Thinking just heading to Dusseldorf. @Yorkhill_True_Blues if he does the bus I will also.

Cheers mate, I better hold off on booking. Nothings ever straight forward with Uefa
I know mate I have the hotel booked for the 3 dates as it can be cancelled but can’t do anything with the flights. Tempted haha.

The sooner we rise up the rankings club and country the better. These early rounds are a joke and uefa obviously don’t give a %^*& about them. Group stage and knockout after that is easier to book for as the dates are set in stone and no messing about.

Sooner we get the coefficient up the better.
Tired of this carry on with diddy clubs when three of them share a ground.

Am I right in saying Thomas Cook did official flight to Luxembourg last time ?

@Greg Marshall are you able to get confirmation of Yes / No / Likely / Not Likely

Lots of bears love going trains planes automobiles.

Lots of bears prefer rolling up to Glasgow Airport and away for the day.

Iv got a family day trip to Belfast on the 31st, where would be a decent route to take. seen folk say dusseldorf? Coming in at £80 one way. Could ve tempted to just patch the family journey home and catch a cheaper flight from belfast than glasgow lol

Our flight gets into stansted late at night, we’re thinking of booking a hotel outside the airport and sorting travel back up the road for the Saturday.

I've booked the same hotel to cover the potential Tuesday or Thursday date in Luxembourg, will cancel one of them when the date is confirmed.

Currently looking at flying into Charleroi then getting a bus or train down to Lux, whatever is easiest and/or cheapest!

Tickets won't be an issue for this one, as long as they play it at the National stadium like last time.

Just booked two nights in Luxembourg City, with the cancellation option. Going to wait before booking travel.

Too many if/buts/maybes from what I see. Got a feeling our game will change as Progres are the lowest ranked of the potentially 3 Luxembourg teams who could be in town on the date allotted.

They are, but all the results are in our favour so far, the CL team might not play there either. Fingers crossed

Looks like a drive up to Venice for me and a flight from there. Currently sitting at £150 return. Could drive it all the way in 12/13 hours, but think a leisurely 450km drive (around 5 hours) and a flight is the less tiring option this trip. Add in road tolls of €40, €50 for petrol and €40 parking does put the cost up a bit.
