In this city, the party never stops!

Some very interesting results last weekend, including a very fitting 1-1 draw between Leicester City and Chelsea, has seen a nice conclusion to a stunning season of English Premier League.

 

This weekend, one last game to cap off this season of English football will see Manchester United face off against Crystal Palace in this season’s FA Cup final. Manchester United will be looking to acquire some silverware during what must be a grueling transition period for the fans, but it won’t be a walk in the park, as Crystal Palace has shown glimpses of the exciting football they are capable of, naturally a must watch.

In Spain, Barcelona and Sevilla will both be looking to add to their collection of silverware this season. The Catalans, after being disappointed by the Rojiblancos in the Champions league, and after redeeming such by bringing home La Liga title, must be wary of Europa League champions Sevilla, who devastated Liverpool in the final, as both sides face off in what should be an intriguing Copa del Rey final.


Good Vibes

Sunday Sessions

If you love brekkie and Thai grocers, you have got to check out Sydney’s Boon Cafe, it’s an awesome bundle of both, with awesome coffee and an appetizing menu, this gem would be a great start to Sunday. Like it when you walk in to a cafe and see a science lab instead? Check out Prahran’s Market Lane in Melbourne, they have this massive roaster with a computer screen and an engineer dude just monitoring the beans…a coffee bean-gineer? You gotta give it to em, it’s great coffee.

If a Sunday just isn’t a Sunday without a breakfast burrito, check out Brisbane’s Southside Tea Room in Morningside, they do awesome breakfast tacos as well.

That’s the wrap for the weekend folks!

THE TURF hopes you all have a great weekend and as always, enjoy the football!
