Im looking to watch their opening match against Cameroon on Saturday in Croydon. Do any members know what public houses are planning to open early?

Only place you're really guaranteed to see it, where I'l probably be, is the Swan in Stockwell

there were 2 blokes on talksport last week who have created a website detailing which pubs in the south east were going to be showing what games and if could remember the address this would be a useful post.:(

There may already be a thread on this but I couldn't find it and really need your help.....

Now I know you can watch the matches in the comfort of your own home but apart from actually going to the match you can't beat watching the matches in a pub.

I have been advised that the Portmanor is opening at 7am for the Nigeria game, rumour has it that they will charge a fiver to pay for barstaff and provide a fry-up to all attendees.

So who knows what other pubs/drinking venues that are open for the other England(and Ireland?) matches in the Croydon area. It would seriously help me plan my social schedule over the next few weeks.

The Argentina match is being shown at Epsom downs on the Friday before the Oaks apparently. They have 7 big screens around the racetrack, free to get in, take your own beer. If the sun is shining it promises to be a cracking day - and you can waste loads of hard earned betting on the geegee's afterwards.

Please check these facts before you depart of course, I cannot be held responsible for any ruined days due to changes in schedules.:sob:

Is Glaziers close enough for you?

It's a damn fine start to the list of options.

I'd like to find some nearer central Croydon though, some people live in Caterham/Sanderstead/Wallington so any pubs on middle ground so to speak would be useful.

The Purley Arms are open for England games. Don't know about the Irish ones tho' . They were open for England's friendly Vs Cameroon so probably.

And now re-titled. Busy life this. Still, everything in moderation, as they say.

McConnells on Kitto Rd Nunhead/Brockley will almost certanly open early. Its a real Irish pub and always shows any football (and rarly closes too)

28-05-2002, 01:24 PM
the broadgreen tavern will be open at 7 for the Ireland game on saturday

The Hogshead in central Croy & the Litten Tree (towards South Croy) are both open for all England games & rumours are that the Irish ones will be shown too.

A good bet is also The Alma between Croy & Addiscombe (Lower Addiscome Road - 5-10 mins walk from East Croy BR) as its definately showing the England games & normally have Irish sport on as well. Give 'em a call.

the brief will be open on saturday - but your best bet is the alma or broadgreen tavern. heard that the porter and sorter will also be open.

This might not be helpful for you Mark, but I would image the Welcome Inn in Thorton Heath or The Norbury Hotel will be open its a Irish Pub's, Cherry Tree Brb, should be able to tell us.

I have just spoken to a barman down the Porter and they have advised they have a liscence but are probably not open.

Crown & Pepper has a licence to open early aswell, but it's not the best place to watch sport, too twisty, too turny, if you datch my crift.

Anyone going to Glaziers for the England games?

29-05-2002, 09:44 PM
Somehow I doubt it. There will be a huge choice of pleasanter places to watch the games. Shame its such a hole, otherwise I'd be happy to go there.

Keepers arms hotel, North Melbourne, will be showing every game it possibly can, England games will get priority, and expect this pub to be full of expats.

other than that the casino here in melbourne, will have everygame,
Lygon Street, Carlton, will have all the italian games, lol.

As the world cup is on in Aussie prime time (for once) expect most pubs to have at least some of the games on.


Boy a wealth of venues, just where to go to find the most atmosphere is our quest in melbourne.


Yahooooooooooooooooooooooooo

If you live in or around Brighton, theres a website you can visit to see which pubs are opening for the early games or showing any of the others.

just back from the keepers arms hotel, north melbourne, was ok'ish, best thing about it was the suprise result. would imagine it would be full of expat poms next week.

the french supporters in this pub were visibly gutted, and who could blame erm. the one senegalese supporter had to take orf back in his cab at half time. thank gawd he saw his goal !!! lol !!
