    Anyone tempted to go to Russia now....?

    I originally planned to go to Moscow for part of the tournament but cancelled a few weeks before

    I notice there are loopholes with the fan ids whereby you can use an old ticket number to trick the system. With a fan id there is no problem getting into the country.

    I'm still on the fence slightly but I think the risk is too great without a visa or official ticket for one of the remaining games....

    Anyone else have views on this ?

      Can't make my mind up about the loophole. The Russians are so security conscious that when we entered (via Road) from Poland they did take a few people away for a 'document' check on top of taking everyones fan id's and passports, so I would be surprised if they were letting any tom, dick and harry in on random fan id's with names not associated to tickets. Or maybe they just don't really care.

      You have match tickets for your return trip tomorrow?

      I had no intention of going, but your post on another thread has me pondering.

      Jezza told me it's a great nation, so that's good enough for me.

      I've got a fan id / visa any way as I was out there for the group games so no problems there. I managed to get a ticket off the FIFA portal yesterday.

      Respect to any of our fans going over there. I made a couple of games in 1998 and it was memorable, despite losing one of them. To see England play in the World Cup finals is a must for every fan.
