Attention Soccer Fans
« on: May 07, 2011, 08:22:49 am »
On July 20th, at 7:30PM, the greatest soccer team on earth, Newcastle United Football Club (NUFC) will be playing Sporting KC in Kansas City, KS. - http://www.sportingkc.com/news/2011/03/sporting-kc-host-newcastle-united-fc

It's a 500 mile drive, each way, but how often to you get to see NUFC play in the USA? Not ever, that's how often!

So, who fancies making a road trip of it and going to see the game?

What's soccer? Is it one of those women sports
If you've got them by the balls their hearts and minds will follow.

Soccer, properly named "Football", also known as "The Beautiful Game" is a proper game for athletic, manly men, who don't need to stop for a rest every 45 seconds, or wear body armour to guard against booboos.  :lol:

Quick follow-up: Tickets are normally $50, but I have a supporters' code to get them for $20.

So that's a $30 saving, right there. It would be rude not to take advantage of it! ;D

That would be so awesome to see but Brett and I will be coming home from vacation on the 19th (and will probably be broke).
Another day in this carnival of souls
Another night settles in as quickly as it goes
The memories are shadows, ink on the page
And I can't seem to find my way home

There is a house being painted on my street. Tickets to come and watch it dry are only 20 bucks. Not as far, cheaper and just as exciting!

I am sorry who is playing?


If its not ManU or Liverpool its a second tier team in the premier league.



Also if it isn't a U.S. team I really don't care


EDIT --- but it is a really big opportunity for BRITISH soccer fans.

And your "expert opinion" on English Football is based upon what?

English football fans, old chap. Not British. Try asking a Scot to explain the difference sometime.  :lol:

It's a nice opportunity for me, since I don't often get to see my hometown club out here, but TBH, it's a bit of a yawn for all the folks back in Blighty, who get more quality football in a weekend that we get in a year, this side of the pond. The lucky sods!

I still think its cool you get to go.. I don't want to take away from that.


And Im not an expert on any game that a tie is a regular event and not a rarity. I don't think a Scot would like to be called British or English.

A very long time ago (Almost sounds like once upon a time, doesn't it?)  I attended a soccer match in London.  I really have no idea who was playing now.  I did not understand the game then as now.  The most vivid thing I remember is the "enthusiastic fans".  They were absolutely rabid!  Made a young sailor feel right at home.
