    Well, tomorrow we'll be flying over for this one. We're stopping in the Hallmark Inn on Midland Road, so a 2 minute walk to the Brunswick etc. What time do fans normally start to wander in to the pubs around there? Which are best recommendation for beer, atmosphere and possibly food? Will I get to meet any of you? If you see me (I'll be wearing my '69 replica shirt as always, with my blue and white scarf and accompanied by 2 Spanish chaps) please introduce yourself, it would be nice to put a voice and a face to at least some of the posters on here.

    So, as I have said in the pie thread, we decided to take the risk and are going over for this game. We'll be arriving Friday lunchtime and returning Sunday afternoon. They want the full on football experience. I've bought three tickets in the south stand upper, area h, row c. I would have preferred on the other end of the south stand nearer the away fans but there weren't three seats available together. Hopefully the atmosphere will be good there, although obviously the game itself can affect that. Does anyone on here sit near there? What's it like in general? We're staying in the Hallmark Inn on Midland Road, so only a five minute walk to the Brunswick etc. Which are the best pubs for pre-match atmosphere, preferably with an early start so as to get to the ground early as well? I would imagine that they would fancy some post match beveraging as well (I don't drink beer because on occasions even just a small one gives me a migraine 😢 although I'm sure I'll try one 🤗). Hopefully will get to meet in person some of you off here. We'll be easy to spot. The George Clooney look alike (well, I've got grey hair) wearing a replica 1960s shirt and a blue and white scarf, accompanied by two Spanish blokes whose only English will include the word ducking quite a lot.

    Whisk them past Bubbles then take them into the Merry Widows at 11.00 to look at the rams memorabilia on the walls and a taste of a real English pub. Over to the Waterfall for a bite to eat, see a bit of the early Prem match on the telly, up to the Brunnie about 1.45 for some proper beer then walk under the road and alongside the old railway buildings (the Roundhouse etc) to Pride park. Get yer selfies at the Clough & Taylor statue (look out for the guy selling pin badges nearby) and a quick plastic lager in the fan Park tent if you have time.
    Enjoy it mate!

    From what I can find Bogle only ever actually made 10 appearances for the U23s.
    In only one of them was he on the pitch at the same time as Bennett, for 85 minutes against Leicester in November 2017. 
    For 7 or 8 of his performances Bennett wasn't even in the squad!
