You are Forced to Emigrate..... 12:39 - May 14 with 5095 viewsBrianMcCarthy

Question:

You are forced to emigrate for one year. No choice. You've got to go.

But part of the sweetener is that you get a free season ticket for another team.

What City would you move to, and what team would you go and see?

1) Football
2) Non-Football

I've thought about this and my answers are:

1) Amsterdam, and Ajax. Museums, architecture, laid-back people, great football and watching Ajax Academy train. And spliff.

2) Boston, and the Red Sox. Imagine watching all that twisted angst up close. It would be hysterically funny. Plus I love the Sox.

1) Buenos Aires, Boca Juniors. Steak, wine, women, music, politics, and football.

1. Berlin

Union, possibly in the Bundesliga next season, and Berlin, second only to London in European capital cities.

2.San Sebastian.

Real Sociedad, nearly finished stadium work done, and a brilliant place to live.

Buenos Aires is not a bad answer though.

Great question. I love Italian football, have been teaching myself Italian for some years, and think Sardinia is amazing so I would be spending a lot of time at this (temporary) ground:



This club would work for me for either choice...

1) Bergamo for Atlanta football club, Italian food, and amazing architecture/history.

2) San Francisco- The one US city where I chatted to a women on a bus reading the communist manifesto, lovely hilly city with a public transport network and lovely trips to the California coastline.

Somewhere off-grid, warm but not too hot, good food and lazy days with a small community.

well, the Dallas Cowboys are my other big love team, but the Dallas/Fort Worth area is about as attractive as living with Donald Trump.

if I was choosing a location rather than sports team it would be Vancouver

Why stop now, just when I'm hating it

1. Florence. Fiorentina are my second fave side and Florence is meant to be beautiful.

2. Vegas. Not exactly a team but if i could get a pass to see all the big UFC fights there that'd be good.


If sport wasn't involved, I think I'd like Canada. Not sure exactly where though.

Valencia.

It'd give me the kick up the backside to improve my Spanish, plus it'd be fun to go on away trips where you're part of only 50 or so in the away end. Plus great food and good weather.

I'd live in the Umbrian hills around my favourite city of Assisi, I'd have to travel some 12 Kms or so to watch the permanently shyte Perugia (Serie B), after spending the first 45 minutes or so moaning I'd leave at half time, go home and smoke a joint and say things like "yea whatever"

As for coming back after a year? Nah.

Cagliari are not going to be moving back to the renovated ground anytime soon, so from a football perspective it is poor. No derbies either.
Sicily is better.

It is a beautiful city and well worth a visit.
My own choice would be Barcelona.A city that has everything on its doorstep and the worlds best player every other week would be enough for me.

My brother chose Vancouver, it's cool. So close to Whistler, all those islands. If only it was in Thailand.

Queens Park Rangers (Grenada Premier division)
Went to their ground once, no game on that week unfortunately but got a photo of me outside next to a big sign advertising a forthcoming game between Queens Park Rangers and Pan Road River Wizards.
Grenada's brilliant. Beaches, beer, rum, calypso, lambie, hot sauce, pelicans.

Seconded on Real Socieded and San Seb. That whole area from Bordeaux down through Biarritz to the Basque country is my favourite and San Sebastien is absolutely gorgeous. Mum had a house there but just sold it and kept the one in Brigg. We are not on speaking terms.

I loved San Sebastien. I went for a weekend to Biarritz and found it snobbish. Had a day trip in San Sebastien and loved it a lot cheaper to eat out and bought my alcohol in Lidl to take back to France. I regretted not going to San Sebastien for a longer trip.

Brigg ! What a shithole. Grandparents lived there and it's just horrible.

drove down to Portugal for Euro 2004 and had a great night in San Sebastian on the way down there.
Found ourselves in a great bar where the bloke DJing liked my Joe Strummer tshirt so much that he insisted we put our drinks on his tab all night!

Nashville. Tennessee. Meca of Country music and Bourbon whiskey. I reckon that could be a bit of me.

I'd have to get into NFL I guess. Tennessee Titans. Apparently they will be getting an MLS team soon Nashville Soccer Club.

I'd probably end up in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, where my partner comes from. Nice food, hot in summer (40oC+), freezing in winter (-30oC), low level corruption everywhere, not much to do.

FC Dordoi of Bishkek are general winners of League & cup most seasons in an 8 team League.

Binoculars a must.

The Basque Country is unreal. Used to surf there a lot.
