PTBob's Premiership Pilgrimage Adventure



Here's an album with some pictures from my trip. Mostly football pics with a few randoms interspersed. Had a blast.

Visited Old Trafford, The Emirates, Stamford Bridge, and Craven Cottage. Saw Wembley and Ajax's stadium. Went to three games while we were there.

Man Utd vs Fulham - ended 2-2 at the death. Was a roller coaster of emotions. Pretty enjoyable game to go to.

Fulham vs Liverpool - Craven Cottage is just epic. That's all there is to it. Small stadium but amazing atmosphere. Sat on the 2nd row and Sturridge and Richardson both celebrated right in front of us.

Man City vs Chelsea FA CUP - amazing game to go to. Very entertaining. Felt weird to be sitting in the city section, but I wasn't passing the chance up.

Pics here

Working up uploading go pro videos to you tube now. Will post when they are done.

ETA:Here are some youtube vids. I basically just smashed a whole bunch of smaller videos together. I'll be adding more in the days to come.
Fulham vs Liverpool I am no cinematographer. These are in a random order and for the ADHD folks here are some highlights.
3:20 fulham crowd
3:50 - sturridge goal/celebration
7:20 - richardson goal/celebration

Bishop Blaize - this is prior to the United vs Fulham match at a supporters bar. Had to have a gameday ticket to get in. Again, in no order.

Those pictures are awesome. Looks like a fun time. Your friend, however, looks like a proper Chav with those earrings.

When we were in Manchester everyone was asking him for directions and shite. Thought he was a local. When we got to London, he caught a lot of flak for his whole persona. It was damn hilarious.

Is this some sort of travel package? Can I book a PTBob Special? Because I basically want to do all of that ASAP.


Best photo of the album IMO.

re: PTBob's Premiership Pilgrimage Adventure


lol. we just picked a week and then i spend a bunch of time researching which games were playing and and where at and if it was logistically feasible to make it. In hindsight I sort of wish we would have waited for a Champion's League week. Can't complain about a weekend premiership, midweek premiership and weekend fa cup though.

The whole trip cost me just over 2600. That's flights, tickets, places to stay, spending money, food, everything. I know that's not dirt cheap but I got out spending a lot less than I was expecting.
