Socrates – World Cup Fever!

The timing for our football bloggers meet up couldn’t be better. The first football bloggers meet-up coincides with the World Cup Qualifiers. What better way to watch an England match than in the company of like-minded footy folk? (unless you’re not English of course).

Our sponsors Football3s will, no doubt, have one of the games on and there will be a chance to have a go on their real time fantasy game.

We are looking to open the doors at 7pm. Someone should be at the door for a little while to greet people and direct them to the bar.

In the meantime, please feel free to promote Socrates. Wear the badge with pride! Also, don’t forget to link the Socrates blog to your own site.

12 days until the finest minds in the Football blogosphere assemble. Want to join us? Email socrates[at]the-onion-bag[dot]com.

Socrates London 1 update

The word is spreading and we’re all looking forward to the main event on the 9th September.

We are thrilled that the fine folk at TwoHundredPercent, Soccerlens, Who Ate All The Pies, Tottenham Blog, Low-Life Opinions, Festival Of Football, Truebluearmy, echelsea and Just Football among other football bloggers are meeting up at Socrates.

If you’re a football blogger or writer and you want to join us in London on the 9th September, drop us a line at socrates [at] the-onion-bag [dot] com.


Jon from Goalpostr is working on a Socrates widget for all Socrates bloggers so if you’re coming, get yourself signed up at and get involved in some hardcore football social networking.


You can promote Socrates by using the #socrates hashtag on Twitter when talking about Socrates. Also, there is a wee Socrates picture on the side bar of this blog. It would be great if you slapped that somewhere on your blog.
