    I have ongoing confusion. My dad has two season tickets (I usually use the other one) and bought two tickets for this game off the back of that. So I have two tickets to collect on Thursday (for myself and another London Saint) - whose ID do I require, my own? my dad's?

    Bit of flight stalking, where is the team flying into?

    Also what airport did they use for Vitesse? Couldn't find a Southampton charter anywhere!

    When you say "use the other one", it has got your name on it, hasn't it?

    Please note that tickets will not be issued at the point of purchase and will instead need to be collected in Denmark by the qualifying Season Ticket holder on the day of the game upon production of photographic ID.
    It's on the OS

    Thanks. Sounds fairly simple.

    Am I right in thinking best option from Billund airport to herning is the train? Looks like it's one stop from give st to herning and takes around an hour?

    I Thinks its bus to Give then train or train bus from give to Herning.

    There is no direct bus or train from Billund airport to Herning.

    Taxi is VERY expensive for that distance, avoid that.

    No trains from Give due to engineering. You have to get to Brende.

    Very rough draw pots for Europa League. Will be several changes after Thursday's games as this pic shows how the seeding looks if the seeded teams all win tomorrow night. So as it is currently, we are in pot 4. But a 3 result swing of non-seeded teams who have a lower coefficient than us going through will put us into pot 3.

    Some hotels have bicycles for hire. Not much good if you arrive in town and haven't checked in yet.

    Judging by our draws so far (highest unseeded team and a national champion CL drop out) you just know that if we do win through we'll get Dortmund, Monaco and Lazio! Nothing like doing things the hard way! Still let's concentrate on tonight and hopefully cheer a few people on this board up with a win!

    Fairly quiet but good atmosphere on the strip now. Nice mix of fans, very low key policing.

    The IPA is superb but very strong. There will be no further sober posts from Shroppie tonight. :-)

    Yes, we tried to find out how many tickets couldn't be collected but no joy. It was open seating there tonight so there may have been some bunching. I was slightly to the left of the Saints fans as seen from the tele, behind the left - hand post of the goal. Unfortunately I could see the whole match clearly.

    Enjoyed the trips, if not the last two matches. Shame it all ended before the group stages in a reprise of Bucharest. RIP. Hope we do not have to wait another 12 years.

    Sat watching TV and the TV turned itself over to the Live draw on BT Europe as I had it set to record. Another kick in the teeth!

    We would not have ended up in the group. If we had won last night we would have been in Pot 3 (we would have been 34th highest-ranked team). Midtjylland were in Pot 4 (46th ranked club). The draw would have been completely different. If you really want to think what might have been it would be better to use Augsburg fixtures as a guide as they ended up 34th ranked as a result of our demise, so that would have been Athletic Bilbao, AZ Alkmaar and Partizan Belgrade - that would have been interesting and 2nd place would have been well within our grasp. C'est la vie.

    Spurs and Liverpool will be pleased to only have one long trip each, i feel more gutted now seeing the draw would have loved to have seen us play some of those sides, had thought we were destined to play Atletic Bilbao.

    Irony is Spurs and Liverpool fans get so much European football they aren't that bothered about these.

    Napoli away...****.

    Once in a lifetime trip, that would have been. If the seeding and pot etc. would have been different if Saints rather than Midtjyllland had gone through I don't want to know about it thanks. We missed out on Napoli away and that's that. I might never get a chance like that again.

    Oh well, at least we have yet another fixture away at Sunderland just round the corner to make up for it. ****.

    Trying to console myself, Bruges would have been good but Naples is a hole, but I am sure I would have stayed somewhere nice outside of there.
