Seeing a Game at Nottingham Forest FC

August 1, 2021

Nottingham Forest has emerged from the wilderness of English football and is back in the Premier League. So here's a look at what it's like to see a game at their City Ground. An older version of this post, written in 2016, started out this way: "If you knew nothing of English soccer, and you…

Seeing a Game at Bolton Wanderers FC

November 15, 2019

(This post was originally written in December, 2015, and updated in 2024. Bolton are in League One for the 2024-25 season.) I have always said that if you're going to watch an English soccer game, don't sit with the away fans unless you're one of them. Generally, this is true because the away fans tend…

Attending a Game at Arsenal

April 4, 2019

(Editor's Note: This post was written in 2014, but it still gives a good sense of attending a game at Arsenal. I updated a few things in April, 2022.) For the longest time, I thought going to a soccer game in England was this mysterious thing that you had to be somehow "connected" to be…

Touring Craven Cottage at Fulham FC

September 15, 2018

Seeing a Premier League game at Fulham FC in London is, for Paul, the epitome of what Americans will love about watching soccer in England. Among the perks are small stadiums in the middle of big cities, local rivalries, and a chance to experience sport like we remember it as kids: without so much interference…

Fulham’s Craven Cottage: A Proper Civilized Football Ground

September 4, 2018

Going to a game at Fulham is among the more civilized experiences I’ve had in my English soccer travels. First, it’s in a lovely and posh area of West London, and to get there from the nearest tube station you actually walk through a park along the River Thames. Second, the ground, Craven Cottage, is…

Me and Fulham: A Like Story

December 12, 2017

Like most Americans, when I started getting into watching English soccer, I basically knew four things: There is a thing called the Premier League, in which play Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and … some others.
