  2. Hi Grant,

    noticed that you’d listed Vaduz amongst your grounds visited, and since many of the articles are Bairns related, I guess that you were there at that game. So was I, although I went along as a neutral. I was living near Munich at the time, so I got a Bayern ticket on the train plus other tickets through Austria and a bus journey to get to the game. Amazing sights there though with part of the town devoted to dispensing alchohol to the visiting support. Unf I had to leave at the end of normal time, as the last bus left then. PS I also write on the nonleague matters web site.

    Eric
