Socrates London 5: Ghana v Uruguay

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…

Start your World Cup Quarter Final weekend at Socrates London 5

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 game Picklive Footie. They are laying on free food, booze and footy. The venue is in Vauxhall, south London.
