    Jets Nov 18

    Been to the old MetLife stadium in '08 (exact same place) and it was very easy to get to from Penn Station... assuming you're staying in Manhatten. There was a game specific train which was cheap and regular which I expect is still the case. Carl03 is the fella you wanna speak to as he was/is a resident in New York and has been to many games at MetLife so will be able to give you far more tips and advice. You'll get plenty of light-hearted stick if you're wearing your Pats gear... and I saw a couple of Pats fans getting some not-so-light hearted stick (beer thrown at them and verbal abuse) although they were being obnoxious themselves so they were asking for it. If you're well behaved you won't get any trouble based on my experience....although the Jets have had an additional decade hiding in our shadow since I was there

    AFC Championship Meet-up Nottingham

    We'll stick a pin in this due to low numbers and Shooters have been abit noncommittal about staying open until the games finished. Plus I've now gotta be in West Bromwich tomorrow so early start for me. Apologies but hopefully next time. Enjoy the game.
  4. Hi boys and girls, Putting the feelers out there for a meet-up to watch the AFC Championship game at Shooters Sports Bar in Nottingham. Unfortunately Hooters and South Bank Bar both close at 10.30pm on Sunday so Shooters seems to be our best bet. I'll call them today to see what the craic will be should the game go on late, overtime, etc, but I believe they close at 1am so shouldn't be a problem. I'll explore a few other options aswell but wanted to see what sort of attendance we might generate. Shooters is on Friar Lane, just up from Market Square, so very central if people can make it in via train or tram and there should be plenty of street parking on a Sunday evening which is free after 8pm. Let me know and if there's a nice little group of us we'll make it happen. Ash

    Roadtrip 2017 discussion thread

    Great weekend! Great to catch up with everyone and meet people I hadn't met before. The game wasn't bad either Thanks so much to the organisers....it appeared as seamless as ever but I'm sure there's lots of work and stress going on under the surface. As Chris said, it doesn't go unappreciated! My mate Rich who attended also asked me to pass on his thanks and said he was blown away by how well organised it was, how friendly everyone was and the tailgate atmosphere took him completely by surprise. Already looking forward to the next one!

    The NBA schedule doesn't come out 'til August, Jonas, so we'll have to wait and see.

    It's a shame I don't get in 'til Friday evening I'm hoping there'll be a Celtics game on the Monday or Tuesday

    I was happy at the Hampton Inn on the previous RT I attended. Thanks in advance Howard if that's the hotel we go with. Is anything likely to be happening downtown for Thanksgiving that weekend?

    2016 Roadtrip - voting COMPLETED

    I don't think I could go all that way and see the GOAT in street clothes so the Rams game gets my vote

    UK Patriots 2016 Superbowl Party

    Enjoy the game all, whereever you end up watching it. Shame the Pats arnt in it but I think over the next couple of seasons there'll be a shot at Number 5. Have a great evening.

    2015 Week 15 vs TEN

    Are you going to every game Carl?! I've only been to Giants, Broncos, Eagles so far and Green Bay pre season. Going to this one and the Jets, it's a good haul but I was hoping to do a couple more. Did you tag on the Titans game so you stood a chance of finishing the season with a winning record?

    Thoughts on RT 2015

    I kinda wanted to tell you to save you the misery of watching it. Still, at least you're not a Villa fan aye

    2015 Roadtrip planning and discussion thread

    Just got back home this afternoon and reiterate what others have said...huge thanks to Mark, Mandy and all who organised the RT. Despite the result it was a great day and after 11years and 3 road games I can finally tick off the trip to Foxborough. Hopefully the first of many! Great to meet all of you and put some faces to (user)names and hope to see you all again soon. Apologies to those I didn't get much chance to speak to!
