Premier League matches at your local pub Of course, if you want to interact with other fans while watching Premier League matches, you could always find a local pub in or near your area.
I checked into the creatively named Hotel Football , which is well within cheer-shot of the stadium. It carries the soccer theme further than I could possibly imagine: Soccer trading cards paper the hallways and the shampoos and soaps in the shower come in jersey-shaped pouches.
In every room, the mini fridge is stocked with free grape soda and Curly Wurly chocolate bars, for some reason. From my room overlooking the stadium, drinking my grape soda, I watched fans at all hours taking selfies at statues of Bobby Charlton and George Best.
It looks run-down, with rusting exposed girders not the trendy type and a dated, s-shag-carpet kind of feel. The locker rooms, which you can see if you take the tour, are tiny and surprisingly bare, and even the VIPs have to make do with a ring of dingy lounges and suites around the pitch.

After that, it hardly mattered that Liverpool tied Sevilla. Sans odor, one hopes.
How to do soccer in Newcastle I took the train coast-to-coast and arrived in Newcastle with a day to spare before the game.
Manchester and Liverpool are fine cities for a stroll, but Newcastle may be the best of the lot. I walked from the statue of abolitionist Earl Grey down to the River Tyne, and explored the relics of the newer castle from which the city got its name.
The whole city is named in this amusingly straightforward way. For instance, the gate through which prisoners were taken from the jail to be executed?
Newcastle has two official cathedrals. Nicholas, affiliated with the Church of England, and St. The stadium sits right in the heart of the city.
It was expanded in the s with the same exposed girders and pipes that make Old Trafford look so tacky. The whole thing comes off a bit better at St.
A few years ago, the current team owner tried to rename of the stadium after one of his businesses. It belongs to Newcastle.
