One of the first places in the USA I visited. I remember (vaguely) a Dollar beer night in a hotel down by the old Vet

Looks like the team are currently in Washington, D.C. The latest official video has them training at DC United's stadium.

Maybe there is a link with Christian Benteke as to why they are there
 Also the Rooney factor.

Or maybe they just wanted to stay somewhere that's convenient and central for all 3 match venues. Apparently they're staying in Washington for the whole duration of the tour.

That doesn't make total sense to me . It's good the players can get a rest and Washington is safer than Philadelphia so in that respect its better suited.

On Sky
Did you hear Martin Tyler has retired and Peter Drury has come in
Great move as Drury miles ahead of Tyler as a commentator and will for me enhance the coverage of games.
Tyler became irksome

God forbid!

You're right, it makes far more sense that they've chosen somewhere because of a player who left us 8 years ago, who none of the current management have any connection to. That's more likely than them picking somewhere with good facilities that's nice and central.

Well there must be an agreement with Premier league clubs or Emery has links to Arsenal still because Arsenal were in Washington just before Villa arrived and left.
Yes that makes sense regards central hub.

My mates had a good time at the Lions Club event in Philly yesterday. The two Emis, JPA and Elmo in attendance, photos taken and flag signed etc.
