My Eurostar arrives at 15.35, hopefully it's on time and then a 12 minute walk to Palais de la Bourse. Should be able to join the queue before shutters come down at 16.00 on 18th.

If you are talking about ticket shop shutters 2 hours before the game, KO over there is 1845 so closer to 1700 for shutting.

Not sure how many are going on Eurostar or have done it before but make sure you get there early, whilst St Pancras is an architectural beauty the cramped facilities for Passport control are a fucking joke and take bloody ages, when they say check in closes an hour before they mean it.

Good advice, based on recent experience.

Yep I really did cut it fine the last time I went through and at one point the queue was moving so slowly I thought I’d miss my train. I’ve allowed three hours from arriving at Euston to train leaving St Pancras so hopefully me and AV82EC Junior can partake of some alcoholic refreshments.

Has many people got flights booked for the final already?

I'm keep debating whether to book something at risk before the price goes up and limited availability after the semi.....

As much as I am optimistic about us getting through, I still keep putting off booking anything

Panicking now. Should be at St Pancras by 1.15 today to catch the 15.04 with Passport Control closing at 14.04. Will I be okay ?

Yeah you should be fine. I use St Pancras several times a month and the queues usually go down quite quickly, and the afternoon trains are normally less crowded than the early ones.

Agincourt is rather more distant than 'a little over an hour' from Lille isn't it? Isn't it closer to the border with Germany?

Either way, let's hope for a similar outcome.

I can see a few posts on Facebook of fans waiting at airports and train stations etc. Hope whoever from this parish is also going over has a good and safe time.

Got the Eurostar at 7:04am. Collected tickets 1:30pm just off for a few beers. Not sure where everyone is congregating?
