Four Days Before Premiership Adventure Begins

There are just four days to go before EPL Talk’s tour of England begins with the Everton versus Bolton Wanderers clash at Goodison Park, and the excitement is building. While my blogging has slowed a little during the last few days, the work behind-the-scenes is reaching a fever pitch.

Here’s a glimpse at what EPL Talk is working on right now.

On Monday, EPL Talk issued a press release announcing the tour. Distributed to media organizations around the U.S., you can read it here. In terms of publicizing the tour, I’ve already received requests from several media organizations for interviews including BBC Radio Five Live’s Up All Night, and the BBC Lancashire web site. More details to come regarding those and other opportunities.

I need your advice. I’m contemplating whether I should attend the Newcastle United against Celta Vigo UEFA Cup match at St. James’s Park next Thursday (November 23). I could take the train from London to Newcastle, stay a hotel after the match and then return to London the next day.

It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the Geordies play (and when’s the next time they’ll play in Europe, ‘eh?). But please share your thoughts by clicking on the ‘comments’ button below and let me know your reasons why I should or should not attend the match.

By the way, thanks to Mark Harper from the North American Newcastle United Supporters Club for being kind enough to recommend hotels nearby the stadium and railway station.

In other news, I’m seeking advice on how best to get broadband internet access in the UK. While staying for most of the trip with relatives, they either don’t have a computer (my aunt in Liverpool) or have dial-up access only (my cousin and his wife in London).

Other than visiting internet cafes such as EasyInternetCafe or trying to find Wi-Fi hotspots, do you have any advice on other ways to get internet access such as high speed wireless broadband service or other methods? Thanks in advance for your help.
