Sounds a bit basic in it's facilities, to say the least. Interesting how close to Stonehenge it is.....

Yeah I saw that. It could be a decent match, if it wasn't midweek and I was going to be back from work and able to make it over there in time, I might have considered it. Anything can happen in a cup tie... Realistically, they'll have to play a lot better than I've ever seen them play to beat the Sounders.
The other problem for me is the venue; The Al Lang Field.. its a ****** baseball field, they want a small fortune for anything resembling a decent seat (there isn't much of a choice), and even worse, since they've moved over the other side of the causeway to St Pete's, it's less accessable than it used to be in Tampa.

Oh that was the old one I mentioned. New one is in a housing estate: Raymond McEnhill Stadium, I've played there in an u-13's cup final. Thought I was at Wembley. Horrid estate though, shame.

Ah...but back in the day when the Astros played in the Astrodome, seating was cheap and it was an entertaining day out, fans were very supportive. Also when the football team were the Oilers and they also played in the Dome the atmosphere was so much different than now. Those were the days

Let's get it right, shall we? You mean the "american football" team.

Agree with you on Chelsea and Spurs. The rest of your post is bollocks. Well done on signing a new star striker. Ha ha ha

Welcome - nice to have a new perspective, and another tiny club's fan here. You and kimilseung will have lots to talk about.
