Quoted from GrimRob
To a lot of people having a drink or two before the game adds to the experience. I don't see how anyone can have a go at anyone who actually makes the effort to trek across the country to watch their team live. Save your contempt for the plastics who spend the day watching their "team" in a pub and jumping up and down and shouting at a screen.I bet most of them drink a lot more as well.


Oh how I wished I could have stayed in the pub in Donny half an hour or so longer.

On my way home yesterday afternoon I had a 1 hour 20 minute wait at Donny train station so went out of the station and into a pub which was showing the Leicester v Man Utd game which was full of Man U plastics getting excited and shouting and cheering "their" team onto another comfortable win. I had to leave with Man Utd 3-1 up.

Would loved to have been in there as Leicester rattled in the 4 goals that came after.

The way I look at it these days is that it's not a proper awayday if you arrive after noon and I'm obviously going to spend the majority of the lead up to the game in the local public houses rather than looking round the shopping centres.


What about the.museums les

All I seem to read on here is what booze establishments are the fans visiting on their GTFC days out.
They don't  seem to care about the importance of our teams performances,

GTFC watching is not the same without a beer or three inside you.

Les was in the same two pubs as me on Saturday and the second pub (the King & Castle) was full of football fans from both teams chatting about their teams and interchanging knowledge with each other. Real Ale rather than Lager was being drunk and normal football fans actually do get on with each other in pubs that cater for ale lovers, beer and football can bind people no matter who you support.

I have followed GTFC for many, many years and always try and get at least one pint in before the game no matter where it is, my CAMRA Good Beer Guide is consulted before leaving home and like loads of others I often enjoy the pre-match pint more than the football we have played over the last few years.

These days watching town is such a bind that it is all about the day out, getting merry then come 5 to 3 the football kinda gets in the way it's that bad but it's also the reason we go out for the day in the 1st place so always doable IMO.
Next month we've got a carful going to Torquay for the weekend. 2 of them have no interest in town but are coming along to get sloshed and goto the game. Sad barstewards need to get a life eh? No this is life
