LFC kicked off their summer USA tour last night at Fenway Park. Your Redmen suffered a last minute Own Goal off of Agger from a corner to be downed 1-0 by Roma. To be honest the game was not a pretty one to watch, very few chances on goal, not a lot of Poetry In Motion. The lineup was heavy on academy & 2nd team players. Coutinho continued to dazzle at times with his skill. Emre Can came on after 12 minutes to replace an injured Fabio Borini who went down awkward on his shoulder(Just bruising is being reported nothing serious) Can looked pretty good, he could turn out to be a really positive signing.
LFC have a morning training session in Boston & some promo work around the town at Dunkin Donuts & Subways(no that wasn’t a joke they actually do.) Speaking of that it was pretty cool to see Daniel Sturridge in a Subway commercial last night before the match. Forecast for the match is looking stupendous 81degrees no rain mostly sunny.
Day of the Match Info: Traffic. Prepare for Traffic. You could possibly hit some here in Indy with the Brickyard 400 going on Sunday. Also in Chicago, apparently the road Lake Shore Drive which gets you to Soldier Field is down to 1 lane only, so there was already bad traffic there when it was 2 lanes it is now only 1 lane so plan accordingly. The earlier you can leave and get to the match the better overall. Once you’re up there before the match you’ve got a couple different options for pre-match fun. Looks like most folks will either be heading to The Scout It is a pub that is a little less than a mile from the stadium & pretty close to one of the train stops. Guinness is supposed to be having a fan zone in one of the parking lots by the stadium so that might be something to check out. Comment below on what you are going to do pre-match. I know we have some folks going up the night before for the Fire v Spurs match or they are going to the Fowler/Rush event.
If any other news or events happen I will notify everyone. It would be great to be able to have everyone meet up either before the match, Maybe inside the stadium that would make a good picture or possibly at Halftime. The excitement levels are building for this weekend!
Thank you to everyone who came out to Union Jack Pub last night for the match. Looking forward to saying hi to everyone in Chicago this week.
If you have renewed or got a new LFC membership once again get that number emailed as soon as possible so we can add it to the list, extremely close to hitting our goal to send paperwork into LFC.
