Watch premier league football during your stay in London
The premier league season is fast approaching with the kick off to the 2010/11 season starting on Saturday 14th August. As London is the biggest city in the UK you would expect there to a number of London clubs competing in the competition, and you would be right. Serviced City Pads, the booking comapny for serviced apartment and hotels in London brings you some thoughts on how the London clubs will fare this year and then you can choose who you would like to go and watch once you have booked your accommodation in London and where might be the best area in London to stay.
Arsenal: Managed by French genius Arsene Wenger, the Gunners play their home matched at the Emirates stadium in North London. They should be challenging for honours this season but much will depend on the fitness of Robin Van Persie and the motivation of club skipper Cesc Fabregas. We predict another Top 4 finish. If you would like to stay in North London then we would suggest booking a serviced apartment in Islington or an apartment in the City of London.
Chelsea: Last season’s champions and still the teamto beat. Many of their older players (Deco, Ballack) have moved on from West London and new faces are promised before the closing of the August transfer window. Chelsea is situated in West London and you may consider staying in accommodation in Earls Court, a hotel in Hammersmith or a West End hotel if you want to be nearby to Stamford Bridge.
Fulham: Close neighbours of Chelsea but only geographically. They play on the banks of the River Thames and have recently appointed mark Hughes as their manager. Another season of mid table mediocrity beckons, especially after losing previous manager Roy Hodgson to Liverpool FC. Again, consider a hotel in Kensignton or Mayfair or a serviced apartment near Hyde Park to be nearby.
Tottenham Hotspur: Close neighbours and fierce rivals of Arsenal. Last year Spurs broke into the top 4 of the premier league for the first time ensuring a chance of Champions Legue football. Serviced City Pads feels that a gruelling European campaign may take it’s toll on Harry Redknapp’s men seeing them slip to 6th in the table. Again, look to stay in Central London or the City for easy access in and out of Tottenham.
West Ham: Are the only club who play their matches in East London. New manager Avram Grant wil be hoping to do better than Gianfranco Zola who was sacked at the end of last season. Much will depend on keeping influential midfielder Scott Parker. Finish position 13th. There aren’t too many placed to stay in East London so again, we suggest booking a hotel in the City of London or staying somewhere like Holborn or Covent Garden so you have easy access east.
So, with 5 teams to choose from, Serviced City Pads recommends that you try and visit an Engligh Premier League game during your London city break. Make sure you contact the relevant clubs in advance for tickets and let book your accommodation in London with Serviced City Pads.
