A relic from the 1980s - this tiled wall on Wembley Way makes me smile every time

Despite the gloomy grey clouds and typical drizzle the walk up Wembley way is always fun.

Aside from the swathes of ticket touts and people selling godawful fake NFL scarves it was a smooth walk up to the 49ers tailgate party.

Was good to see fans from all over the UK wearing their favourite NFL team shirts, as well as seeing some dedicated fans who has dressed up for Halloween. I swear I saw Captain America !

As usual the merchandise was grossly over priced, but I could not resist a program.

Program cost £10.00 however the 49ers flag was free

Gore will be looking to slash the Broncos defensive line at Wembley

With two combined wins in their last 10 games, and only 3 wins in 14 contests between them, this is on paper the worst two teams to come and play in the NFL International Game, in the four year history of the contest.

Still, one mustn’t grumble we are under 5 little days away from the 4th consecutive regular season NFL game to be played at Wembley Stadium, and although it may rain, and whilst my wife will not exactly be beaming I can’t wait.

Whatever anyone says the real key to this game is how many touches that the talented 49ers running back Frank Gore (pictured above).

If Gore gets 30 touches then the 49ers win, if he gets under 20 this means they are passing and it spells doom and gloom.

I will take a small reporters notepad with me to Wembley on Sunday (along with a plastic bag to put my programme into) and I will be tooting up the Gore touches.

The 49ers opponents in England, the Denver Broncos, had their back sides handed to them in a hemp sack by the Oakland Raiders two days ago. 59 points conceded in three quarters by a team quarterbacked by Jason Campbell is simply to painful for words to describe.

Gore must be licking his lips more than a group of donut eaters at the world donut eating championships.

As much as I respect the heritage of the Denver Broncos I am a fully paid up member of the ‘Josh McDaniels is a prize loon fan club’ and I will be rooting for the Red and Gold on Sunday.

Only problem is I have just had a t-shirt delivered from the Next catalogue – and bizarrely its a Denver Broncos retro shirt with the white hose riding up through the big letter D.

I wonder what everyone else is wearing and if you actually are a fan of the other 30 teams who you will be supporting on Sunday?
