It's over dogg, the only suspense is will this be a double, treble, or quad.

Sorry bud. I first thought about you yesterday, then I thought about how spurs went from adorbs to gross and hated. The worst part about it is your life will be filled with shitty Chelsea fans trying to convince all COYS about how great "the special one" is. Enjoy three years of all of the spurs news being about stupid things Jose says and does.

The Premier League is more entertaining with  Jose in it.

That's true, just hope he isn't "leading" your team.

Game and atmosphere of the season at Bramall Lane today. Sucks to lose the 3 points at the end but Sheffield deserved something from it after that 1st half. Phil Jones should never play for United again (old news, I know). Pereira needs to be dropped but the midfield is too depleted and Woodward refused to replace Fellaini and Herrera. Pogba and McTominay sorely needed.

Agreed on all accounts. Not Ole's fault, this roster has zero depth.

been watching Serie A because of ESPN + and Atalanta just absolutely destroyed Milan today.

Atalanta gets Valencia in the R16 for the Champion's League. They have a great shot to go to the last 8.  Incredible.

London, is an amazing city, but its really far from Manchester. I'm assuming you'd go by train? Absolutely don't drive.

Norwich plays at Man U on the second. If you go to London Chelsea are hosting Burnley. To me those two matches are the same, probably not worth going to London just for that. The Spurs Arsenal match is at the Spurs new stadium, the tickets for that will be tougher to get and a lot more expensive than the others but will have the best atmosphere. The secondary market is much harder there, they do have cops that patrol outside of stadiums to combat that but they do have uk stubhub. A lot of the fun of going to an English soccer match is seeing the fans interact with each other.

Honestly, I think your best option would be Aston Villa hosting Man City on the 12th Aston Villa is halfway between Manchester and London, that match will be really fun and less corporate feeling than the other matches discussed.

Good thoughts. I might have an in with Man U tickets from a vendor but I don't like asking. Is Everton pretty corporate? I'd kinda rather go to a smaller club stadium so Sheffield on Friday night or Aston Villa on the 12th might work if flights for the rest of my trip work out.

Everton has great fans but it will be easy to get in there because they're crap and Brighton are also crap. Villa are also crap, but they are playing a club that will have their stadium jumping, and this is their first season back in the PL in a while. Everton vs. Brighton is just lower table purgatory. That being said the atmosphere for that will likely be better than anything you've ever seen here, for anything. I saw Everton vs. Millwall last year in the FA Cup. Millwall is mid table dreck in the English Championship, the weather was like 35 degrees and raining, and it was the top 5 environments I've ever seen. I'll be a Millwall fan for life.

OK I can't figure out how to get Brentford tix. It looks like they make it really hard to get tickets when the away allotment sells out. @MiR how did you get the Fulham tickets?

I've been to Millwall and to West Ham before they moved. I got the West Ham tickets from their ticket office and the Millwall tickets from Stubhub UK.

I wouldn't do brentford qpr, that's going to be a complete waste of your visit. It looks like you're planning to be in London on Saturday. If you're going to do that I'd pick Crystal Palace hosting Arsenal as the first choice, that atmosphere is going to be nuts. The prices for that match is less than Chelsea v. Burnley
https://www.stubhub.com/crystal-palace-fc-tickets-crystal-palace-fc-london-selhurst-park-stadium-11-1-2020/event/104175289/?sort=price+asc&qty=1&qqd=1&qtyq=false

https://www.stubhub.com/chelsea-fc-tickets-chelsea-fc-london-stamford-bridge-11-1-2020/event/104174278/?sort=price+asc&qty=1&qqd=1&qtyq=false

The Chelsea match probably won't be as crazy, although it's still top flight English football, and you'll get to see Pulisic.

Those prices are obviously nuts, I paid that to see a match in a crappy stadium and it was worth it. Stamford Bridge is beautiful, don't know anything about Sellhurst Park. Before buying these tickets I would contact the ticket office, both matches I attended were "sellouts" but there were open seats. When I got the West Ham tickets from their office, it was two days before the match.
