Socrates on Twitter and Picklive Footie

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.

Play and win at #Socrates

Our generous sponsors Football3s are putting a bottle of whisky up for grabs at tonight’s Socrates.

There will be a couple of laptops available for folks to play the real time fantasy game. The player who score the most on the night gets to take the bottle home with them.

As always the venue details are below. Here’s hoping for a cracking night.

Welcome aboard Kwaitoball

Our very own Mr Twofootedtackle Chris Nee is so excited about the forthcoming shenanigans in South Africa that he has launched a new World Cup blog.

It’s called Kwaitoball and was launched yesterday amidst a huge media fanfare (he plugged it on Twitter and we retweeted it).

Anyhoo, why don’t you get yourself over there now and feel free to congratulate/poor scorn on his efforts in person when you come along to Socrates next Wednesday.

What’s that? You’re not coming to Socrates? You are now. Email socrates[at]the-onion-bag[dot]com.

A warm welcome plus booze, food and football awaits you courtesy of our generous sponsor Football3s.

Socrates 1 – What a night!

Socrates 1

This is just a flavour of the first Socrates last night, Wednesday 9th September. Everyone had a great time and we’re grateful to all those bloggers who came along.

The pretty much unanimous feeling was that we should do another one soon. So we’re chatting with Noam at Football3s with a view to setting one up for December. More details to follow.

If you couldn’t make it and want to be kept in the loop, drop us a line at socrates[at]the-onion-bag[dot]com.

Socrates London 1 – One week to go

Yes folks, the inaugural Football Bloggers Meet Up in London is seven days away.

Kick off is at 7pm and those fine folk at Football3s are putting on some food and drink while we watch England qualify for the World Cup. And if @soccerlens can avoid upsetting Liverpool fans, it should be a cracking night of football and chat.

It’s not too late to get involved. If you want to join us, please email socrates[at]the-onion-bag[dot]com.

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.
