    I rather stick pins in my eyes than go to a Tranmere game!

    The difference is you get to watch an EPL side and a team with Bale, Modric, RdV, Parker and what have you... and i watch Football League rejects!

    Weren't you watching Valencia not too long ago?
    It also helps that I live in a city where you can cover the 5 miles in no time and for next to no cost!

    Yeah, Valencia... this time last year I was doing my Erasmus semester there.. so naturally I went to the Mestalla every week for my fix. A lot cheaper to attend top flight games there as well, unless it's Real Madrid or Barcelona. Saw Real Sociedad for 15€ and Villarreal for 30€ but point blank refused to pay 65€ for Barcelona. Just wanted football, which I knew I could get for a lot less. Kinda like why I only fork out for Spurs if it's the derby.

    True, i live in a seaside town along the North Wales coast about 50 minutes away from Wrexham. To be honest, they are hardly my "local" side!

    Ah, i did think it was you who lived there as i remember telling you how much i wanted to live there. I doubt i'd pay more too, head to a bar and watch it there would be my plan.

    Exactly what I did. My apartment was about 15-20 mins walk from the ground, but just watched the game in the bar just below! Free TV and 1.50 euro beers as opposed to 65 ticket and 4 euro beers, no brainer! Want to go back and do it all over again.

    Ha, perfect! Go and take me with you. Around 5/6 years ago i've said i wanted to move there but i'm too much of a wimp to go alone. My plan: get my degree over with next year, work for a year by which time i'll be 24/25 and then move to Valencia. However, i have a huge soft spot for Atletico Madrid so i'm not sure how that will pan out if i make Valencia become my side to watch.

    Haha suck it up! I liked and followed Atleti due to their similarity with Spurs as being one of the 'lesser' sides from the capital (in all fairness our Spanish equivalents are probably Getafe), but as I moved to VLC I decided to watch what is best described as the Spanish equivalent of Liverpool instead.

    Haha that's so good to watch.

    Shame that there are more old men wearing glasses in that video than there are brain cells between those chanting and dancing!

    Spurs Sunderland has started pretty slowly. Needs a goal to get going I think. Both teams score quite a few so I'm hoping for some goals.

    The ref in the Spurs match (the guy who also ref at the Liverpool Villa match and made some howlers) is awful. Should have been a pen to Norwich, doesn't give it and Spurs score at the other end :lol:

    No action against Balotelli, but three game ban for Ivanovic.

    Why don't the FA use common sense!?
