The Championship definitely has better away day trips IMO. However, I’m willing to sacrifice these trips for a return to the Premiership.

The only way to go to away games is on the train 

Aberdeen - shite ground but not too far from ground for city centre pubs

Celtic - everything about it awful

Hibs - Great stadium. Great drinking options 

Motherwell - I have an inexplicable affection for Jack Daniels 

Hamilton- shite

Killie - never been

Livingston - shite 

Ross County - I like the day out but having to get a bus back to Inverness is a total ballache 

Rangers - Everything about it thoroughly unpleasant 

St Johnstone - Always a good day and some good pubs in Perth but again a pain to get to ground from town 

St Mirren - I drink in Glasgow and get train to ground. Don't know Paisley much

 

I bet you £500 that it’s not.

It's harder to find the time to go to many games these days. I like away days at Dingwall, even though it's a trek. I usually get a train to Inverness and then a bus to Dingwall, and it's nice to make a day of it and the Mallard is a magnificent pub. Hibs and Livingston are relatively close (I am five minutes' walk from Easter Road), so that's good for me. Motherwell and Hamilton are not too bad distance wise either. As I don't own a car and am rather lazy, getting to McDiarmid Park is a ballache. I could quite happily live without ever going to Paisley again, and the ground itself is utterly soulless. I hate Pittodrie, I haven't got the slightest intention of visiting Celtic Park or Ibrox, and I probably won't bother with Rugby Park unless someone wants to take me to Fanny By Gaslight afterwards. Even I struggle with the legroom at Rugby Park, and I am five foot nine.

I’m surprise at @Twinkle saying he likes Pittodrie.  I don’t know any other football fan who does.

It’s a dump, I feel we are corralled and it’s always Baltic.  Mark Twain would probably have preferred San Francisco.

The United equivalent of Charlie Adam saying he'd love to join Dundee.

It'll keep being mentioned for years and the only chance it'll be a realistic option is when he's about 38.

Aye this. Anyone who think we could pay his Kansas City wages knows nothing about the MLS. SKC also have an option to extend on his contract at the end of this year, and he's one of their best performing players so you'd expect them to use that option.

Also, after the last 4 yours of old favourites coming back and all being terrible, I'd rather we didn't go to the past for player additions to be honest.

No one thinks that.

The difference between a 38 yo Johnny Russell and Charlie Adam would be about 4 stone in Charlie's favour and 30 teeth in Johnnys

It would be hilarious for all outside of United if he packed his bags got a flight back to Scotland and signed a 2 year deal. 

Only for Robbie Neilson to continually pick Peter Pawlett ahead of him. 

Crazy to think that it was 7 years ago he left.

Kilmarnock is decent, if only for the pies.

Can tell you've not been in a while based solely on this.

McDiarmid Park now has the best pies in Scotland. Steak and Chorizo for you.

Gayfield wants to have a word. Steak and Black Pudding > Steak and Chorizo.

This is obviously the correct answer. Black pudding is the superior ingredient in this situation.

I'd rather be eating in Premiership peh shops than Championship ones though. Steak and Chorizo will have to do. Ach well.
