    There's also going to New York where I have family around my age. I've never been to America before and essentially I'd have no living costs what so ever, I'd just have to pay for the ticket and have enough spending money.
    I'd go for that then tbh. You want to maximise what you can get for the money. Europe obviously has the benefit of not being like £500+ down before you step off the plane, but if you can have free accommodation when you get there that is as good as. New York surely would make it onto most people's must visit top 10. You can do a quick visit to DC in a day too if you're a bit of a culture vulture.

    Fizzel doesn't live in manchester, ian dangerously knows little about football and talks about passion of being a united fan and his days out while saying how he would beat up liverpool fans or get into beef if he is in rome, stretford end was decent for a new guy but wasn't really this innovative guy.

    Wilf you're losing this argument.
    I'm not just talking about being a tactical nerd and overdoing the analysis like half of you lot do. Ian is more clued up than most. I've had MU guys send me PM's on here asking if they would get sussed sitting in our end. That just wouldn't happen with him or SE.

    Well how stupid do you have to be if you're sussed out?

    What does this have to do with being a best poster either that somebody has decent social skills and actually has emotional intelligence so you don't get caught as an away fan in the home end :rolleyes:

    Vegas?

    But he said 1k tops and you need 5k for a decent holiday there tbh.
    Nah I disagree. You genuinely dont have to buy drinks because the cocktail waitresses just pile you with booze for $1 tips. No real advantage to staying in one of the top hotels either vs just staying in Cesars etc so you can do it relatively cheap.

    I was there when I was 19 and probably spent about £800 over a weekend, a large part of which was gambling losses that were obviously not compulsory.

    Oh ok. I just realised he wouldn't get into most places though as it's 21 and over right?

    I mean staying there for a week you'd need a couple grand. How much was the hotel and living costs amounting to? Also the flight?

    America is extremely hit and miss like that. In my experience, the hardest places to go out are crappy little bars or joints in small towns. If you rock up to the Bellagio poker room, dressed nicely and throw down some cash for chips odds are they wont blink since you're obviously British etc as well. Clubs are always tricky though of course, might need to arrive ridiculously early or something for those kinds of places but as I say you should be fine in Vegas if youre persistent. Loads of sly little tricks as well. I got chatting to one of the pit bosses in the poker room, asked him for some advice on where to go and he gave me a signed free pass for their nightclub. Rocking up with someone to name drop is then a piece of piss

    Never had a problem going out in places like Vegas, NYC, LA even if you might get rejected in a few places as well.

    Be surprised how well a crappy £20 fake ID works as well since Americans are genuinely thick as ****. Could probably use a Nectar card to get into some places :laugh:

    There are some brilliant cities in Eastern Europe. Krakow, Prague, Split, Budapest...
    I was in Split once and was absolutely bored out of my tits, nightlife was just poor. Obviously loads of beautiful scenery but you can see that in half a day imo. Croatian girls arent great either in all honesty, most of them look like theyve been hit with a shovel and many of them probably have.

    Prague is a bit cliched and too full of American tourists to be fun.

    Krakow is full of 40 year olds from Hull on the stag and generally being *****. I was there with a mate of Polish decent and so he showed us some interesting places but most people just end up in a bar full of 90% English which Ive never understood.

    Budapest, now that is a beautiful little city where you can easily find quaint and interesting places to go out. Cheap as chips as well. Hungarians are great people too imo, really met some great ones over the years.

    They both make/made better, far more interesting posts than the majority of what gets posted on here. The day Glazer died they were the ones talking sense, I saw other people wanting him to rest in peace, they obviously didn't understand how it had fractured the fan base. That's just one example.

    Guys knowing some obscure Swedish player's chance conversion stats, heat map and distance covered but not knowing how to behave in another team's home end .

    So now when a man dies and people show respect its apparently not understanding how he divided a football club. All this comes in the light of Phil Hughes passing away, some things are more important than sport.

    So wishing death upon somebody when they didn't really affect you that much(just a football club not a matter of life and death) is cool. It's just being scummy and being the smaller man.

    I'll leave it at this. More to life than football.

    Anyway who's had coconut peanuts? They're so nice but they cost loads.

    Yeah but people die every day and we just ignore those, the only reason Utd fans were talking about Glazer at all is because he was involved in their club but he was an absolute thief in that capacity. So why say anything about him at all? Either ignore him or call him a **** imo.


    What does 'respect' mean in terms of writing on a football forum anyway? It's a meaningless concept. People talk about it as people told his family at the funeral that he was a ****, Utd fans are always going to reflect on his impact on their club upon his death.

    It was appalling what they did.

    You really can't see why some people didn't feel the need to abuse a deceased pensioner?
