Just booked some flights to visit the Algarve, Portugal from the 11th July- 14th July.

Anyone else on here in that neck of the woods around that time.....
Planning on going out there at the same time, just trying to organise a couple of things to confirm it. UTB

I can probably do 6-10th, but i guess the Blades won't be there until after that

To get a sensible priced flight you need to take a flyer (no pun intended) as if you wait for United to confirm dates it would be cheaper to fly to US.

Warning! Moan coming up.

Why oh why does it have to be this way? Why can't they give the dates when they know them ?
It's like they don't want us to go and support them!
Why make it so hard for us?
Why is it all so secretive?

...deep breathing, eyes closed, calm, calm calm.:)

Well. If it's a "large Spanish club", played in a "large neutral stadium" in Portugal, then someone, somewhere will be looking to make money out of it. The Stadium owners will be angling for a cut, there'll be some media rights to sort out, either live TV or streaming, pitch side advertising, the FA, Premier League & their Spanish & Portuguese colleagues will have to sanction the game & give approval. I suspect, an agent may have got the basics together and spoken to the two clubs to get an in principle agreement in place. Those rumours will start doing the rounds. If nothing else, because the agent will want to demonstrate to TV, sponsors, advertisers, etc that there would be some interest in the fixture if it happens. Last, but not least, the clubs themselves will want some synchronised announcement. We're a Premier League outfit now, there'll always be some stand off about money. For the Club themselves, it's reasonably straightforward. They'll have booked the flights, hotel & training facilities. They're going. Now, they need to get the small print together for a game. The one in La Manga was effectively against a made up team of available non leaguers from the local area.

Its playing havoc with my Half and Half Scarf production and the logistics through The Crab industries will be a nightmare if he has to send them by camel again
