  1. Ryan Gauld

    Sporting bought him from Dundee United, for around 3 million I think
  2. hotels

    I play football next to the Lindner. It's a decent area, with several excellent pubs and restaurants. Also only 20 mins by bus from the airport, and 5 mins to both the train station and centre.
  3. Hi Wubbs

  4. Belgrade/Chisnau

    I went to Chisinau last year - not the most touristy place, but has an interesting mix of architectural styles, and more than enough to keep you occupied for a short time. There are wine cellers in Cricova to the north of the city, which may be an interesting day trip if you can get it organised. Following on from Wanderer's suggestion, I also went to Tiraspol, which was definitely worth the effort. Used this company for a couple of their tours, and they were excellent - http://transnistria-tour.com/en/. There are all sorts of warnings not to go, but I had no problems at all, and the people were very friendly.
  5. hotels

    I've not stayed in that hotel, but had beer and food in their microbrewery (which is excellent). Cracking view of the castle too.
  6. Yerevan

    Went there prior to Georgia game last year. I wrote a quick summary of Yerevan, and also of half-day trips to Khor Virap, Garni temple and Geghard monastery. Our hostel arranged a taxi to take us around - was pretty cheap. You probably want to check out Envoy Hostel who run various trips day and multi day trips around Armenia - we did the walking tour in Yerevan and it was excellent. If you need any more info then let me know. Enjoy
  7. Venue

    No, it hasn't been officially confirmed by the Slovak and Scottish FA's.
  8. kick off time

    8:45 local time train station is a ten minute walk, but you'll miss last train to Bratislava unless you leave early.
  9. bus from Bratislava to Vienna airport

    I wrote a blog post on travel options for Bratislava.
  10. Stadium to Vienna Airport

    A taxi will set you back around 50-60 euros. There are regular buses between Bratislava and Vienna airport for 5 euros.
  11. War tours

    I live in Bratislava and not found a huge amount of war stuff. Still investigating though.. Slavin war memorial is dedicated to the Soviet soldiers who liberated the city from the Nazis. There is a military cemetery and bunker to the south of the city. http://www.bunker.bs8.sk/2015/08/27/facebook-novinky/
  12. Slovakia

    Agree with testing once in a while, but not at the end of the season when our players couldn't give a toss. There is no disgrace in losing to either of those teams, providing the players and manager with a convenient excuse. Should have played someone like Iceland, Albania, Romania, Hungary, Austria, where everyone is held a little more accountable. Glamour games should be in November, preferably in Glasgow when it's cold, wet and windy, thus giving a slightly more level playing field.
  13. Slovakia

    Czech and Denmark were the right opposition for the friendly games in March, but France and Italy were clearly about the money. Our decision not play last November was strange, as that was the first opportunity for Strachan to start putting things right after a disappointing campaign. The manager should use every possible international date and have complete control over the opposition.
  14. Russia to Vilnius

    I think a transit visa is only for genuine transit, where the easiest way would be via Russia. Given you could fly directly to Riga, I doubt you'll get a Russian transit visa for this.
  15. Routes home day after the game

    The direct Bratislava to Edinburgh with Ryanair will probably come down in price at some point if you wanted to risk leaving booking for a while
