    well the flight tickets to Milan when we play Inter Milan have rocketed to £300 +, so myself and a fellow spurs fan have decided to hit the road...

    We are driving from London/Watford to> Folkestone to> Eurotunnel Train 30 mins to> Calais to the San Siro aprox 6.5 hours (600 miles). Driving down early morning of the match and driving back mid day the following day.

    Point is we have two more spaces if you are happy to split the cost of travel... Total cost of trip each if 3 people travel 90/95 if four travel then 70/75...

    Clearly I am hoping we will get tickets to the actual Inter Vs Spurs match, as away fans allocation should be a lot more than the usual 2500 / 3000 San Siro is a 70k+ stadium, well I hope...

    Let me know if you want to join us on the trip??

    I once saw the milan-inter derby in the nineties and had to escape the San Siro due to flares and supporters burning seats.

    Then the CL final where Liverpool played AC Milan, first half when they were leading the italians were cool, sharing narcotics and shit. When the last goal went in for Liverpool, they started lighting flares and having some pushing and shoving. I had to leave the Duomo (where they were showing it on big screens) in front of the cathedral early back to my hotel in case things got rougher.

    Heard Inter fans are even more hardcore. So watch yourselves, best travel in packs.

    Like i said, travel in packs. This forum is good for linking yids up. I wouldn't get overly pissed drunk in Milano if I were you though, despite the classical music playing on the streets, when football comes into play, the place goes nuts. Trust me, I've seen it. But on the flip side, there are hot girls every where and shopping is great. Plus shop lifting is less of an issue from 2 decades ago.

    I am thinking about driving as well, but no way to get a ticket down here in cornwall.
    I would be happy to offer a free place in my car (very comfy, on a 10 plate so shouldn't break down) in exchange for a match ticket.
    This would be picking you up from your house, no fuel costs, etc. in other words, free travel!
    Two places up for grabs (car is 2 door sports coupe job so 4-up for 1800 miles not on unless your tiny, ie 2 in front 1 in back)
    prefer un attatched female identical twins aged 18-20 year old nymphomaniacs whose parents own a brewery, but realise that MIGHT not happen, so open to offers!!!

Im a bronze member but hav only just joined so dont hav many loyalty points, So if more tickets get released to us other than ST holders I cant see me getting 1. So do i take a chance off a website & b sat with the home fans & hope I dont get asked for Italian ID at the turnstyles, or just go out there for the atmousphere & hav a few drinkies mayb not in Milan tho, or just knock it on the head. Please help!!!!!

    Absolutely none that I saw. Although I wouldn't take that as any kind of sign for what may (or may not) happen in Milan.
