Burnley was the location as Premier League newbies Huddersfield were in town. Ground 77/92: Turf Moor Burnley 0-0 Huddersfield Town 23/09/2017 Thoughts about the ground I was quite impressed. I did think I would be, as seeing pictures of Turf Moor and highlights of each game there on Match of the Day, I’ve always been interested in going to Turf Moor. It’s a proper old-fashioned ground, I’ve always enjoyed going to grounds like that, so I pretty… Read more »

Our resident Fantasy Football expert Richard Beaumont aka Treakz on Twitter, gives his advice on that first-week free transfer or a whole batch of changes if you are feeling the Wildcard is necessary. Having finally got some sleep/work done following the tinkering of pre season, week one gave us an opportunity to see what we had got for our 100 million quid. But, with Wildcards flying out already, I take a look at quick transfer fixes to catch up on bad selections along with players to ship out in an early season fire sale.

Premier League Asia Trophy – A day with the Plastics

The loss of a bet It happens. I lost a bet. Therefore I was off for a preseason tournament, as the Premier League Asia Trophy was hosted in Hong Kong. The participating teams were West Brom, Crystal Palace, recent champions Leicester and a team, as a Manchester United fan, I hated from the centre of my heart, Liverpool. The debt to the bet was being paid in witnessing my footballing nemesis. As I walked to the stadium, the build up of Liverpool shirts pulled knots in my stomach. Gerrard. Rush. Leonardson. Torres. All moving my afternoon food in the wrong… Read more »

The Gillingham fan is making very good progress with his 92 and shares some thoughts on a recent trip to the Potteries… Ground 75/92: The Bet365 Stadium Stoke City 3-1 Hull City 15/04/2017 Thoughts about the ground I thought the Bet365 Stadium was a really nice ground and on a very scenic route. It’s a bit of a walk to the ground from the station, but most of the walk I took (as the weather wasn’t bad) was along the canal; nice to see some ducks and boats! The ground is nice without… Read more »

Outside the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal

Blogger and the92.net co-founder Pete reviews his trip to the Capital to tick ground number 72 off his 92. Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium was the destination as Hull City revitalised under Marco Silva were the visitors. Ground: The Emirates Stadium (72/92) Game: Arsenal 2-0 Hull City Date: 11/02/2017 Journey South I set off on my journey south just after 8 in the morning. With the threat of poor weather conditions and a 12:30 kick off I wanted to make sure I got into London in time to soak up the pre-match atmosphere. Being an early kick off I think this worked… Read more »
