I know thereís a separate thread for this but itís turned into a bit of a rabble - just wanted to say thanks to everyone for a great time in Molde (maybe you bumped into me, Iím the guy who lives in Finland and was showing off by speaking Norwegian to the locals).

Iíve lived out of Scotland for many years now and I donít really know anyone who goes to games any more, therefore when I travel for away European games (as I also did with Faroes and Copenhagen) I tend to do so alone.
Didnae feel like a Norman Naepals for long though because of the cracking community spirit running through the veins of this club. I felt right at home almost immediately and it made me really grateful and humbled to support this great club.

So cheers to everyone, hope you all got back safe and gies a shout if youíre ever in Helsinki!

Did my son and I share a taxi with you and your wife/girlfriend/bidey-in from the wee bar in the housing estate out to the Brondby stadium? I remember the lad (you?) saying he lived in Helsinki.

Me and my son landed in Molde from Bergen about 2.30 on day of the game. No buses or taxis outside airport. Up comes a Molde fan and asks us if we wanted a lift into town, his Mum came and picked us up and droppped us outside our hotel. Also met a good few of them in the Sportspuben after the game, a pleasure to visit Molde, lovely wee town with great people.

Great story. Did you get dropped off outside the sports pub? We saw some hibbies getting out of a car with molde fans.

Great place, locals made us feel welcome.

Special thanks to girl in office, who gave us prints for nothing,

Helluva expensive place though.....

Good to meet you, both in the pub and on the bus back to the airport yesterday after you bumped your taxi!!!! Our quiet night in Oslo last night turned into 4.00am this morning, very rough now.

Dropped us off at The Thon Moldefjord Hotel, just across the road from the Sportspuben :) could have been us.

First read that as "pints" for nothing

I was prepared to be outraged then remembered when we chatted briefly that you dont drink :greengrin

A great trip one of the best, met a lot of people, and the locals could hardly have been more friendly & welcoming. You are never going to get a few hundred people going away, and mainly drinking themselves into oblivion over a couple of days, without a few making minor ***** of ourselves (most of us have done it). But apart from the ridiculous lengthy arguments between Hibs fans in the upper tier over how "crap" or not Kamberi was, (which as far I'm aware never came to blows), the atmosphere was great.

Sorry, off-thread but; is the 'Jambo' bar still in Helsinki? Always avoided the place for obvious reasons but been to the city 3? times on Scotland trips and always enjoyed the place.

Itís actually in a place called Kerava about 25km out of the city. I donít know how or why it exists cause the guy who runs it is Finnish. It just so happened I was working in Kerava today but Iíll give it a wide berth!

Good to hear, we moved along, thought there was a good chance someone would lose the head and throw a punch if they left together.
