    It was rhe 3rd Euro away in a row that a game of football got in the way of a very good trip. Obviously in Naples we had to be on our guard and there were rumours of a few incidents the night before . We didn't encounter any ourselves thankfully. The bus took the scenic route to the ground and was the guts of 2 hours. Thought we were going to miss kick off at one point but security was a breeze at the stadium
    They didn't check the names on the tickets and we were given a quick frisk.
    After the game the bus took the same route back in under an hour and we were back in our apartment before 2. . Spent the most of today taking in the sights of Bergamo.
    Less said about the game the better but sometimes you just have to say beaten by a better team although we were very sloppy at times
    Even their Allez Allez Allez is so much better than ours!!

    The trip itself was great. Loads of them on scooters hovering around but way too many of us in big groups for the shithouses to do anything. Funny moment was when our group got off the bus from the airport and headed to the first place to get a get drink and the waiter asks how many for seats and one of our lads turns around and theres about 300 reds behind us who obviously followed us and he says to waiter "everyone" :)

    Decent weather forecast for Belgrade next week. Wasn't expecting snow but thought it would be single digits when the fixtures were announced .
    Looking forward to it now. 3 hours to work in the morning then off until next Thursday .

    Anybody attending by private vehicle can park at the Banjica Sports Centre which is a 10 min walk to the stadium. There will be sufficient police resources in the area. Safe journey.

    Great city. Decent weather, relatively inexpensive, friendly people and a nice vibe to the place . Basically the complete opposite to Naples except for the weather .
    And smoking seems to be compulsory.

    Yeah and getting into the ground wasn't good at all. One turnstile for us all. Sat on the bus for an hour before we left to City to out to the ground. Worst away end I've been in. 4 portaloo's and that was it.

    We just got in as they went 1 up and were walking down at the at the fence. They went mental as expected. Some bastard spat right in my face not nice.Police in riot gear came in then.

    Lovely city and nice people and very very cheap

    The next time I am going to take my chances and wing it to the ground with the locals. Was very annoying being kept on the bus in the city centre for an hour before we got moving.It's a shame that a game of football got in the way of a brilliant trip but sure that's life.
