As it appears that we now have two investors, (apparently from USA) who are keen to expand the game into the states, does it seem likely that we will again play a premiership game in there and if so where would be your city of choice?
Mine would be Boston as weve already done NYC

Whilst on, a massive thanks to the board for sanctioning ALL our signings,, an exciting season awaits

I would think as Gallagher are title sponsors of the Prem their home town of Chicago would be a likely option if there is a US game.

I know we've done it already but NYC.

It was genuinely, bar my wedding day, the best time of my life. I had so much fun and if there was another US adventure i'd be first to sign up.

Would like to go to Boston, as I've never been there before and there is arguably a bigger Irish community there

Boston for me too, particularly if it was when "The Fall" was in full Technicolor.

Paul_D 20 May, 2019 16:44
Yup I like the idea of Boston.
And it's more than a feeling!

I'd still like top know who these mysterious investors are. Are they likely to be existing owners of US franchised sports teams or maybe "just" successful business owners?

Re: USA March 2020??
Margin_Walker 20 May, 2019 17:43
And for that matter is anyone in the loop enough to know that they definitely exist?

Is there a link to this somewhere?

Boston for me. Home of the Dropkick Murphys.
Chicago would be amazing too.

I wouldn't mind San Fransisco, as I left my heart there

Surely it would have to be Amarillo, we know who waits there (Sm14)

Tulsa, but only for a quick 24 hour visit.

Kentucky - I have an old home there.

Or Nutbush, at the city limits.

California? We could have an infinitely extended stay in the hotel there.

Detroit - we could hitch-hike from Saginaw, or we could board a Greyhound in Pittsburgh and eat Mrs. Wagner's pies.

etc etc...

Don't go to Baton Rouge - you'll be busted flat while you wait for the train

Re: USA March 2020??
bigbitty 21 May, 2019 09:54
You know what to wear if it is San Francisco.

Re: USA March 2020??
AlecW 21 May, 2019 10:27
OT - I keep dreaming about California girls...

We could play in Clarksville, but we'd have to make sure to catch the last train.

If we won, we might get the Freedom of Philadelphia!

We could have a pleasant walk in Memphis before the game.

I might need to ask directions to San Jose

We'd need to find something to do, if the team 'died' in Denver

San Jose. Anyone know the way?

I'm afraid AlecW has already suggested this destination, but plaese, carry on my wayward son!

Some people on here know I enjoy railway journeys, so Chattanooga could be a good destination. Glad theres a bit of a wait if I have time to get my shoes cleaned before heading to platform 29.

We could try St Louis, Joplin Missouri, Oklahoma City (which is jolly pretty), Amarillo, Gallup New Mexico, Flagstaff Arizona, Winona, Kingman, Barstow or San Bernandido. Never mid Myler, wed get the kicks too...

Well if we wanted to party we could always Viva Las Vegas ,, failing that always look for some Philadelphia freedom

Perhaps we could have a fixture on the banks of the Mississippi against The Saints:

This time I'm walkin' to New Orleans
I'm walkin' to New Orleans
I'm gonna need two pair of shoes
When I get through walkin' these blues
(Many thanks, Fats)

We've been to Pheonix Arizona all the way to Tacoma, Philadelphia, Atlanta, LA.

Forgive me if this is not quite right - I'm relying on a very old memory!

Re: USA March 2020??
bigbitty 22 May, 2019 18:04
Or perhaps more topically...

I'm going to Jackson!

or

I'm sittin' in a bar, drinking a jar with Jackson
and on the street the summer sun it shine

(Rolling Stones, Country Honk - not Honky Tonk Women, but the same tune done with acoustic guitar and fiddle).

Well worth listening to here.

Perhaps the Mississippi Delta, as it shines like a national guitar.

Just returned from 5 day break in Chicago. Lovely city in all respects, not least great food & drink. Doubt Soldier Field would be the venue due to it's huge capacity. Within walking distance of downtown & looks like a giant space ship from the outside.
