    Only 3 weeks to go until a big day out for European based Charger fans. A number of us from this board have been allocated tickets and have arranged our weekend in London for the game against The Saints.

    Wembley could have been filled 7 times over with the sheer volume of people registering for tickets on the NFLUK website alone.

    How many of you are making the trip over here for the game and what other plans do you have for your trip?

    I will fly to London on Thursday evening before the game and stay till Tuesday 28th. Sure meet Dublin Bolt and other Boltfans, have some fun and sightseeing. Try to be at Wembley when the teams have first look and of course at the tailgating party on Sunday.

    yeah, I can understand that. If my own soccer team were playing a match in a venue I couldn't go to I'd be pissed.

    However, from a purely selfish point of view, this really is a big deal for me, for other Charger fans and the millions who tune into Sky Sports every Sunday and Monday to watch any of the live NFL games we get to see in Britain and Ireland.

    If the European games continue, the participating teams will be selected on a rotational basis - that way each team will only have one 'missing' game every 16 years. Surely you can't deny us foreigners that small concession.

    And for our part, as a thank you for letting Rivers and co coming to visit us, we'll all come to see you at some point in the future :icon_party:

    Yes, I'm sure the plan will be expanded on over a beer or two in a couple of weeks. My holidays are already planned for the rest of this year but I'm due a trip to The States next year to replenish my stash of Fruit Loops.

    I can't believe Kellogg's don't sell them in UK. When I emailed the company to ask if they were available over here I was told that if I like Fruit Loops I should try Honey Loops :icon_huh:!! The only similarity is the shape!

    You're right. That's my opinion, too. With the NFLE dead,
    the original NFL comes to visit us. If there wheren't the timelag problems... and the missing homegame for one team.
    So please Mr. Commisioner make it 18 games, with two international games every year.

    Please no NFL team on our side. We already have enough russian billionaires buying hifg level soccer teams. Then
    the teams don't belong to the fans anymore.

    There's also a batch of bolttalk stickers on the way to Dublin_Bolt. He should have plenty for the game... provided I addressed the package correctly. :lol:
