    Wow, cool, thanks scotscheese. If I dont make it to a game I will at least visit the Aberdeen FC stadium and hopefully the Aberdeen FC store if they have one to buy me a shirt, T-shirt or scarf for my collection ;)
    I'm flying from Hamburg with KLM, that means we have to change planes in Amsterdam. KLM is the better connection for us than Lufthansa because LH only offers a flight back on Sunday at 5.50 am. :rolleyes:
    And as we need to change planes anyway it doesnt matter if it has to be done in Frankfurt or Amsterdam.
    Really a pity that the Dons do not play at home, I think I might have had a chance to talk my wife into going to that game. :mad::D

    Got tickets to see the MLS II Harrisburg City Islanders play against the Philadelphia Union. I know it's not EPL, but I thought it might interest you guys to know we have a growing developmental system in the US.

    Is it a friendly game or why are they playing against each other ? Or is it a Cup game ? Do you have this over there, like the FA Cup ?

    sometimes the lower leagues/levels of football are more enjoyable to watch than the top divisions. these players fight harder than top players, you get meatier tackles, and they more than make up in effort for what they may lack in talent. hope you enjoy it lad.

    i myself will be at pittodrie stadium to watch the mighty dons try to overtake a 2 goal deficit in the second leg of our europa league qualifying 3rd round game. and if we manage to get through, we still have to play a possible loser of the chamions league qualifyers before getting to the group stage

    It's a friendly because Harrisburg is the MLS II team for the Philly team. Last year they said a couple of guys played on both teams for the game. LOL

    Good luck, I think its manageable though it might have helped if the Dons had scored at Real Sociedad last week.

    Think the difference with Kompany when he joined City was that he worked on a specialist position (CB), and mastered it. That's the problem with Phil Jones and Chris Smalling, they're a 'Jack of all trades - master of none'

    The NBC Sports network in America shows the EPL games. Last year, they decided to insert some humorous commercials and intro's. I think its a pretty good humor but have no idea how some of you Europeans think of it.





    LOL... good stuff.

    Watched the first half of the Community Shield, Arsenal looked sharp, Man City looked a little lethargic and laboured.

    Only watched the first half though, my boys kicked off at 4pm GMT, nice little 1-0 for us ;):sneaky:

    We played alright mate, helped that Norwich went down to 10 men though, but a fantastic start to the season beating one of the relegated clubs from last seasons Premier League.

    The real football started this weekend, now for that other over-hyped stuff next weekend. ;)
