You need to get out more. Standard practise in most places outside GY for games like this. Keeps numbers manageable


I’ve been round the world and back mate.  Show me any proof that outside GY have charged for tonight.

I call BULLSHIT


An HMV gift voucher.

About as much use as a Scunthorpe season ticket.

So, to control numbers and nob heads you charge £5.00  to anyone who wants to pay it.    With nothing in return.   ?!!

How about £5.00 armbands with the first drink paid for (profit approx £1.50 per arm band.). First 300 ( if that’s their comfort zone) then no more to be sold.  That’s controlling numbers.

As someone who clearly knows them please explain their rationale behind this if not greed.

And a genuine (not loaded) question. Is it the same management as Shuberts/Fiddler?  


I dont know about the owners but Paul Money ran the pub for about 9 years, but packed in about 3 years ago and now delivers parcels for Hermes.

You'll probably know it better as Schuberts, in The Market Place Ginny.

The No 1. pub didn't charge an admission fee, they tried to limit entry to regulars or people who have watched the other England games there and it's generally a good value pub for both food and drink.

They were rewarded with this by people sneaking cans in and drinking them rather than supporting the venue and buying at the bar.

Can you really blame any venue for charging entry when this is what they're faced with?

At the Panama game, somebody smashed up the fruit machine and somebody else pulled down the projector screen.

During the Columbia game somebody let off a smoke bomb during the game which meant the place had to be evacuated and couldn't serve again for the whole game (another hour of play plus penalties plus celebration time) as well as having to pay a call out charge to the fire brigade.

They decided to charge and limit capacity and by all accounts, it worked for them. Don't blame them one bit. It's the price of idiocy unfortunately. If people could behave themselves maybe they wouldn't feel the need to do this.

Ah, right. Don't drink much in Meggies nowadays, and if i do, it's up the other end, Willy's, Notts etc. Only venture to the mad end along the seafront to the numbers 1 and 2.

I have no sympathy with pub landlords about potential damage etc to their property, they make bloody good money and it is the amount of alcohol they willingly sell that fuels the idiotic young p!ss heads. Clearly the idiots have enough money to pour drink down their throats all evening so an extra fiver is hardly a problem.

£20 to get in and no passouts at half time and double the price of ale.  

I feel sorry for the poor sods caught up in it when the drunken mob go outside and, under the guise of celebration, jump on the roofs of innocent folks cars and bus shelters etc
