Sorry if I laughed - weren't many smiles at soldier Field on Sunday - aside from hundreds of Fins fans

Very few pundits / experts have predicted our 3 home game results to date ?

The fans around us were livid with play-calling and dropped catches

50/50 in support of Cutler to be honest - Coach getting a lot of stick as well

Back in Wales now - knackered - fantastic City and a great day Sunday, despite the result - breakfast in Yolk and dinner in Gibson's Steak House

Yes my pocket has been emptied but worth every penny - would love to go again but in all liklihood it will be the Bears at Wembley next for me

What odds we beat Patriots on the road ?

Sorry about that mate, I was one of them smiling! Was surprised at how poor you guys were, crowd were on edge from the start, could sense bit noise being built after Forte scored but your D couldnt stop us next drive and crowd faded again.

If we are inconsistent, you guys are truly schizophrenic!

Went to Wildfire for my steak, great city.

Yolk was gorgeous for breakfast! We also went to Gino's East for pizza when we went, it was the one on Man vs Food. I would have lost!

Didnt really budget per se, but I thought meals were reasonable enough, went to Girl & the Goat, Publican, Wildfire, Ginos East for dinners, Topolomopobobobobobobobo and Naha for lunch, no meal was more than 100bucks for two including couple drinks, tax and tip. And these would be very trendy popular places.

Obviously pizza was on cheaper end of the scale but really good. Had breakfast in Lou Mitchells and West Egg, both would fill you for the day and cost about 15$ pp.

Stayed in river north, taxi to west loop was under a tenner, ventra card was a winner for buses/el.

Soldier Field is weird one for amenities, and expensive for it too obviously.

It was extremely painful from start to finish - watched the game on Game Pass last night - looked just as bad - never mind, Patriots are going down Sunday !!
