      Good going. So about the same amount of time from John o Groats (top of Scotland) to Carlisle (just on the border between Scotland and England)...albeit John O Groats to Carlisle is a few hundred miles less than St Louis to Michigan!

      Hope you get there - I certainly wouldn't want to miss it if I were in your shoes.

      I am in between Ann Arbor and Nashville, so hoping to see them twice this summer.

      EDIT: Oh, I see now the other game is in Charlotte, not Nashville as previously rumored. Well, Charlotte is a little farther away, but, I think I can make it happen.

      Heard the tickets are like 70 USD?! For a meaningless friendly? Bloody hell.

      I mean, if I were an American fan I would probably want to go for the experience anyway, but friendlies tend to be such boring affairs, I hate pre-seasons more generally and all the overreaction ("omg Ryan Kent for the starting XI"! "Gabriel Paletta the new Carragher"!) so I'm not sure I would want to pay that much though

      I don't want to pay that much, but I have done it before. It's been a few years since I've been able to come over to UK, so these are my only chance to see the team in person. And of course it's one of just a few chances for them to get their hand in my pockets (which is the point of having camp and playing league opponents over here - if it was just to prepare they'd be better off having a camp in Germany, Scandinavia or Scotland).

      $116 for the supporters section behind the goal according to the Michigan site.Talking about a soccer record crowd,https://www.freep.com/story/sports/college/university-michigan/wolverines/2018/04/18/michigan-stadium-manchester-united-liverpool-soccer/529380002/.Although i thought they had dropped the cap since united/madrid last played there.

      When I was a uni student in Northern Ohio, Ann Arbor is where all the action was. It's a bit of snob hill, really, but 100,000 in the Big House for a game should be quite a spectacle.

      Just occurred to me that Salah, Bobby, Ox, Hendo and Lovren probably will not be available for these matches as the group stage of the World Cup will have ended less than a month before this. This probably would explain why there is supposed to be another training camp somewhere in Europe in early August.

      Does anyone know if the start of the Premier League season is moved back a week or two?

      I am in the supporters section behind the goal in Charlotte. I had to do it. Liverpool and Pulisic!!!! My 5 year old would never had forgiven me. $525 after shopping for 4 tickets. This will be our first game.

      The tickets are CRAZY expensive. I have tickets to the Michigan Game, and the New Jersey game and they were $70/game. Its frustrating because the lads will be fresh off the world cup. Its unbelievable that they charge so much for a pre-season exhibition match...and I am too weak to say no

      The Big House. I played a lacrosse match there a LONG time ago. There were about 100 people in a 100,000-seat stadium to watch. It was....quiet.

      The way the pitch is down in the ground however (a true bowl), there really aren't bad seats in the house.

      But as I said before, no Bobby, Sadio or Mo (plus Ox, Hendo, Trent or Lovren). I suppose United will be missing their biggest names as well (not that anyone is paying to see them).

      Starting a new job as well, so it's really beginning to look like I might miss these, which I can hardly believe. Instead I'd rather save to make another trip to UK.

      Not a bad idea to save the money. I was able to schedule some work on the east coast the time Liverpool is here so I got kind of lucky.

      Yeah I saw a MI vs Ohio State game when I was in college and it was crazy. Ultimately i think there will be a lot of drunk american fans who say they are 'passionate' but are really just annoying. #Murica

      Most of whom will be "rooting for" Man U (cuz they really like that Beckham).
