A Wild Soccer Saturday in London

Last week my friend Jordan and I embarked upon a winter soccer adventure.  It was an eight day trip with the focus being a Super Saturday in London.  Our plan was to take in an EPL double header.  12:30 would be attending West Ham United against Liverpool at Upton Park followed by a trip all the way across town for a 5:30 Watford - Manchester City clash in Watford.  It was going to be tough but we thought we could pull it off.

Prior to Saturday we had already attended Manchester United v Chelsea at Old Trafford and Queens Park Rangers v Hull at Loftus Road. Our appetites had been wetted for Super Saturday.  It was not all to be easy though. As of Friday night 10pm we still had no tickets to either match!  Both games were sold out within minutes and being non-members on the Watford and West Ham websites there was no chance to get tickets through the club.
