    Rumours we're away to the Jags at Wembley on the 20th October. Just rumours at the moment, though.

    If it goes ahead, I expect a decent Jets event in the Saturday.

    I'll keep you informed.

    If you're interested follow this thread, if not ignore it.

    :cool:

    This would make for a nice vacation as well as seeing the Jets.

    As a UK resident living 45 minutes away, I will of course be there. It would be a return to the Wembley National Stadium where The Jets battered Miami in 2015. A preferable venue to the shitey Tottenham Hotspurs dive, who are an ordinary team in London. Where I had the misfortune of watching Zach Wilson ply his trade.

    Hope the gossip is true. Bring it on.

    In that case, if the game really happens, you three will be in charge of Saturday festivities for us who are on the other side of the ocean currently. :)

    That can definitely happen. There would be so many 'poll' questions as to what you would like to do.

    I would love to introduce our American friends to London Pie & Mash. So many options, but that would be a starter :)

    We can all split time as 'Tour Guide' I'm sure. Let's do it.

    I'm sure they'll be official stuff going on, and we can sort the unofficial too. I'll post up what I know as and when I know it (not that I'm 'in the know').

    Last time, I did a pub crawl which seemed to work. :cool:

    Plenty of opportunities for a little culture and history too, if any of our American cousins would like some of that! I stayed in the South Bank area recently and I was really surprised at how smart it was. Shakespeare’s theatre, the Golden Hind, Borough Market and St Paul’s all within easy walking distance.

    Spurs are by FAR the best team in London. They are in fact the Jets of London.

    Well this comes from somebody who went to Tottenham games back in 1999 while living in North London. They are my London team but before them there is Arsenal and Chelsea :)

    That said, will you join us if Jets in fact play in London?

    Let me rephrase what I said.

    To quote a famous Bill Simmons piece: If the Dodgers had stayed in Brooklyn, they'd be Tottenham Hotspur. If Spurs ever won the Premier League it'd be the equivalent of the Jets winning the Super Bowl.

    Arsenal fans are a bunch of entitled crybabies and the club's list of celebrity fans include Fidel Castro, John Gotti, Michael Moore, and Osama Bin Laden. Spurs celebrity fans: Steve Nash, Salman Rushdie, Ray Liotta, Bob Marley, and Tom Holland. C'mon.

    Chelsea. Let's just say that Tottenham became viewed as "the Jewish club" and was the target of all sorts of anti-Semitic abuse, and Chelsea fans were among the worst, chants about gassing the Jews, doing the hissing sound en masse etc. And just awful racism. Google "Chelsea racist" and see for yourself. English soccer is weird.

    Anyway-- if the Jets play in London, yes I will come! Sign me up for the pub crawl, that sounds fantastic.
