We announced yesterday that the Clarets would be touring the US in July and play at least two friendly matches,one of these against US franchise team, Minnesota Thunder on Tuesday, July 15.
Imagine how thrilled and delighted we were, when a Minnesots fan (uhclem)contacted the site offering help and advice
We repeat below a post he made in our Backchat Burnley forum.
I am a member of the Dark Clouds, the supporters' group for the Minnesota Thunder. Here's our website:
Here's the official website for the Minnesota Thunder:
Here's the message board that most Thunder supporters use (once there, scroll down to 'Minnesota Thunder' forum):
Registering there is free and almost as easy as registering here.
I will post a hotlink to this thread in the forum. It might even be possible that some of the Dark Clouds might be willing to put up a few visiting Burnley supporters for a few nights. I used to provide room and board for a couple of Milwaukee Rampage supporters (a rival since folded) one of whom was from Oxfordshire and guest working in the U.S. Sadly, I have moved out of the state (business reasons), otherwise I would make the offer myself. But for those of you who might actually want to make the trip, it could be worth the inquiry.
If you have any questions about the team or the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, of which Blaine is a suburb of, please feel free to ask me here or the fans at usldiscussions.com.
Welcoming you and your club to defeat (might as well start the festivities now ), I remain
That little old jersey collector
Many thanks to uhclem for registering on Vital Burnley and offering help & advice. Hopefully this will now allow both Clarets and Minnesota Thunder fans to exchange chat on both our sites and get in some friendly banter.
If you want to ask any questions then go to Backchat Burnley and the 'Team to play a few friendlies in USA' thread or have a go at chatting to them in their forum.
