The wife and I flew over to New York with a couple of friends to spend New Years. We landed around 19:00 local time on NYE which absolutely manic to say the least. As we were staying in Times Square we literally had to fight our way through the crowds and prove to the police we had a booking.

We had a fantastic trip and managed to squeeze everything into a week, we averaged around 25,000 steps a day on the Fit Bit, a great improvement from my usual average of around 6,000 (lol).

My mate is a West Ham season ticket holder so was gutted to be missing their home game with Man United whilst we were away. So on match day we tailed off from the girls and found Smithfield NYC, a West Ham supporters bar a which was a few blocks from MSG. To be fair it was like watching a game in a British pub which was nice, all the local West Ham fans had thick London accents and were firing off the chants only West Ham fans would know (my friend Matt was loving it), the United supporters were seemingly all American and they best they could muster was “Glory Glory Man United”.
