Just thought it deserves a proper topic because here we're not discussing the actual game but more the aftermath.


Imagine Spain wins this tomorrow... Can anyone tell me
- where are most people likely to celebrate? The playa? The Ramblas and the Placa Catalunya? (note that I live close to the beach so I somewhat fear for a noisy and sleepless night)
- which are the safe spots to enjoy the sight of celebrating happy people without the worries of pickpockets and drug dealers lurking everywhere?
- at what time of the night the main party should be over (working day on Monday after all...) and should things turn quiet?


PS: I was clever enough to do book a holiday. But even when I don't have to work on Monday, I'd like the idea of catching *some* sleep in order to not waste my holiday in bed the next day :eek:

I guess, as it's working day on Monday and as some Catalans are too nationalistic to openly support the Spanish team, that the party will fade out once past midnight? I mean, it probably won't be a days-long celebration like when Barcelona won La Liga?

Yesterday the streets of Barcelona center were packed with Catalan nationalists protesting against (????) and waving Catalan flags. Apparently some of them are intending to support the Dutch tonight, despite the fact that about half of the Spanish team are Catalans! I hope it will be a peaceful celebration if Spain wins, without any worries about politics ruining the atmosphere. And please no drug dealers and pickpockets neither, although guess that's a bit too much to ask ...

My neighbour was saying that , in 2008, he parked his truck in Pais Vasco to watch Spain v Russia in the european championships to find that he was the only Spaniard in the bar supporting Spain !!:(
