A big thank you to everyone that attended our fifth Socrates event at Mint Digital in London on Friday night. We hope you had a good time like we did, and that you’ll do the decent thing and tell everyone about PickLive Football – the online football game that our fine sponsors produce for everyone’s collective entertainment.
Undoubtedly the perfect accompaniment to all the footy-related chat and beer consumption was the World Cup quarter final between Ghana and Uruguay. You’ll know about the thrilling events that unfolded by now, but here’s a sound clip of the moment at Socrates 5 when Asamoah Gyan’s penalty in the dying seconds of extra time hit the crossbar…
Warning: You might want to keep the volume on your PC or headphones down a bit…
The next football bloggers meet up in London will be on Friday 2nd July and will coincide with a World Cup Quarter final. We’ve chosen that night as England will NOT be playing, should they progress that far. That way, most of us can relax and enjoy the game.
If you are a football blogger but have never joined us at Socrates then this is your chance to hob-nob with some of the best football heads in the capital and beyond. Take a look down the side bar for a sample of some of the top bloggers who have joined us.
Socrates5 is sponsored by the live interactive fantasy gamePicklive Footie. They are laying on free food, booze and footy. The venue is in Vauxhall, south London.
If you want to come, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a tweet at @socratesmeetup.
Socrates has painfully dragged itself in 2008 by finally setting up it’s own Twitter ID. You can now follow the doings of the Socrates London Bloggers Meet Up on @SocratesMeetUp.
There we will keep you abreast of the latest developments with any and all the bloggers who have beaten a path to Socrates door. This includes our generous sponsor Football3s who have now rebranded themselves as Picklive Footie.
If you’re new to this site and fancy joining us at the football bloggers networking event in London, then drop us a line through Twitter or if you think Social Media is evil, then email us at socrates[at]the-onion-bag[dot]com.
After a successful Socrates 3 we are delighted to confirm that Socrates 4 will be on Wednesday 12th May.
Football3s have agreed to sponsor and host the event once again. The venue will be at their bar in Vauxhall as before.
Socrates is a fantastic opportunity for football bloggers, writers and podcasters to get together and share their passions. The free food and beer plus football on the telly only adds to the enjoyment of the evening.

Despite the inclement weather, the bloggers and podcasters of London battled through the rain to indulge in complementary beer, balti pies, Milan v Man Utd and some top football chat. Here’s a video to prove it.
Images taken at the event can be found in our Gallery section.
