It helps you sing when your drinking. UTM  


I find you spill a lot that way though.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Yes, I am the one pretending to be a pirate with a patch over my eye.

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.


I sold the data system to CAMRA for that book!!

I have loads of copies from down the years and I also write some of the reviews of the pubs for my area in each edition. The 2015 issue came out last week: sells thousands every year and not just to CAMRA members (currently at around 160,000 paid up members).

I traveled over from York on Saturday MDT. You would have enjoyed the Friday afternoon/evening we spent at The York Beer Festival. Over 450 Real Ales and 100 Real Ciders, all lined up in alphabetical order in one of the longest tents/marquees I've ever seen.

We tried to get through them all but had to give up around number 250 I think.

In my past experience, a fascination with real ale is a sure-sign of a proper bore.

Whilst I enjoy an ale now and again I cannot stand drink snobbery (unless of course someone who has a pair of testicles orders a WKD or Smirnoff Ice etc). Beers are essential before and after Town games for me. I probably put 10% of the Findus bar takings in every week when we play poorly first half.

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

I don't think there is anything wrong with wanting to drink nice beer, given the chance. It doesn't necessarily have to be proper cask-conditioned ale as you can have good lagers and other beers as well - the problem is that the usual suspects served up by most pubs are simply rubbish and full of chemical crap to keep them from going off too quickly.

What frustrates me is that the same 'foreign' lagers brewed under license in the UK (Stella, Kronenbourg, etc) are utterly rubbish in comparison to their counterparts on the continent which simply taste much better. For the stuff brewed over here, the brewing companies simply don't care how the beers taste just as long as they contain the right amount of alcohol. We'll drink any old crap so they get away with it over here. On the continent, they won't drink it unless it tastes good so they get better beers.

Decent beer doesn't need to be a snobbish thing - you can never accuse Wetherspoons pubs of snobbery!

As for the matchday itself, I personally like to concentrate on the game and don't generally have a beer before most home matches. I'll generally have a couple of pints at away matches but don't tend to have any more than that as the mind starts to wander - especially when faced with some of the dross football from recent seasons!
