Not too many pubs are showing the game due to the 200 pound charge by U>Direct sport.

I have a friend who runs a pub in Melior Street (behind London Bridge, SE1), who says if we raise 100 pounds they will pay the other half and lay on some grub for us.

Our company will take 12 or so, anyone else fancy it?

James Varcoe

Paul, I could alost certainly raise some people (8-10) , but surely if you already have 12 people your 100 is guaranteed?

it is indeed, just thought it'd be nice if a few people wanted to come along and watch the game. Get a bit of atmosphere etc.

Nice little boozer, tucked away there. Most pubs showing it will be rammed. Our local in the city wont show it and that gets packed for football. Most odd.

The pub is The Horseshoe Inn by the way.

England don't come and see me when I'm bad so why bother going to see them? They are pants - a big baggy pair with skid marks.

Are you in Sutton now Maidstoned?. The Litten Tree is about 200 yards from where I work - although its not my favourite boozer in the area.

Regarding Dave's published odds, I wanted to find out the odds for Forsell scoring first with a header but the lass behing the counter just gave me a strange look. Come on you all know this is going to happen. Still 8-1 aint bad.

Burr
10-10-2000, 07:28 PM
I may well turn up too. The nearest pub to me here won't be showing it (I don't think) and that is miles away anyway. Sounds like it would be a good laugh!

The Litten Tree is opposite Sutton station and the "Old Bank" pub for anyone who's going, so is nice and easy to find - straight in front of you as you come out the exit. It's not too bad a pub and I would imagine they'll be a fair crowd in there.

That makes at least three Palace fans that work in Sutton then !

I'm with you Al (in case you hadn't guessed).

I made a vow when I first heard about "pay-per-view" (in fact, before that, when Sky first got hold of their monopoly) that I would never line the pockets of these people who are ruining the game.

I certainly don't intend to start now, watching just about the worst England team in living memory (and that's up against some pretty stiff opposition, as I'm sure you can imagine!)

I don't have Sky or Ondigital or whatever it's called. Never will have.

Good luck to those of you who are going to watch it and have a few beers - each to their own. However, if people didn't clamour to pour money into these people's satchels, isn't it possible that they might go and invade some other sport and we could get back the game we (used to) love?

Prediction? Even with that pants team we'll probably scrape a win and Wilko will be ensconced as the new manager before you can say Jack Regan.

Don't say you weren't warned!

Kevin T
10-10-2000, 09:28 PM
Cuz it was so great before nasty old Sky came along wasn't it. I'd much prefer to have the option to pay a few quid a month and get to see the amount of football I can now, rather that the 'good' old days where you'd get a few top flight highlights on a saturday and one match if you were lucky on a sunday!

Agreed about pay-per view though. Should definately be confined to one-off events like big fights etc.

Actually Kev, it was.

You're obviously far too young to remember the days when MOTD showed the highlights of just 2 games on a Saturday night and then The Big Match would come on of a Sunday afternoon with lengthy highlights and analysis of one game, followed by brief highlights of 2 others.

There were current players of the featured teams in the studio - not some sad old has beens drawing lines all over the place on the screen and annoying the cr@p out of everybody.

There wasn't the minute scrutiny of every single incident in every single game and there certainly weren't any bleating managers whinging about how hard done by they were.

After The Big Match we'd all go down to the park and play twenty-a-side with jumpers for goalposts until it got too dark to see the ball.

How did we survive without being able to get hold of video evidence to back up our claims about refereeing decisions etc. that we'd seen on the Saturday?

Quite simple. We talked (and argued) about them forever!

It is the prerogative of us old 'uns to remember the good old days through rose-tinted spectacles.

But I will not be gainsaid when I claim that Football is definitely nowhere near as much fun as it was.

why do so many people on this bbs seem bothered that people get enjoyment from watching England as well as Palace,there are loads of good reasons to watch England abroad because you get to sample different cultures and food etc and visit some fantastic stadiums,meet foreign fans and discuss the common love of football, as Palace are not in Europe I would otherwise not have these experiences. Saying you only watch Palace in NO way at all makes you a bigger fan than me. Get a life

Kev T - I agree Sky is a good thing, but this game IS a pay per view match. What does that say about English national pride? The irony is I can go home, crack a few beers and watch the Scotland AND Ireland games (switching with the remote)in the comfort of my own sofa and not have to go home in the cold, driving rain after Finland have shafted England.

And I'd just like to say Gooders - nice one. I remember those days well. My fondest memory was winning the Palace in the Past competition during Big Mals days, having my name in the programme, watching us from the Directors Box beat Charlton on the Saturday AND seeing the game again on the Big Match on the Sunday.

University Challenge with Bamber on a Sunday (when the questions were much harder) and THEN, the music comes on, pics of Don Rogers going on one of his weaving runs, and it was there, The Big Match. Sometimes if I was "good" my dad would wake me up so I could watch the highlights of a Palace game on Sportsnight! Happy Days. Could it be things were much more innocent then and everyone didnt consider themselves an expert on the game? Having said that, if Sky want to show me footie on every day of the week I may watch it!

What a cracking performance. 11 decidedly average players absolutely running their legs off in order to secure a valuable point for their country - a country that they clearly love. Unlucky not to win in the end too.

England? ENGLAND?!!!

University Challenge was definitely on at one time before the Big Match. Thunderbirds was earlier i think. Weekend World was after Thunderbirds but before Uni Challenge? randall & Hopkirk were knocking about around that time as well!
Big Match was 2.15, Uni Challenge 1.45, Walden 12.45? Thunderbirds 11.30? When Walden finished I think Randall & Hoppo was on in its slot possibly.

I'm glad you two posted that because I feel exactly the same. I did eventually crawl into work but am still feeling very delicate despite downing six litres of water and eight Nurofen.

well I thought it was the tequila meself... but I nearly fell asleep on the tube home (it's a good job my stop was at the end of the line) and I've certainly felt better than I do today!! just maintaining the caffeine intake high enough to keep going....

You bunch of wimps! I went to bed at 3AM and was up before 9AM! A few hours lying in bed chilling with only a very slight headache and I'm fine!

Kev - you even left early! I can understand the old people http://www.cpfc.org/ubb/smile.gif having problems handling their drinks, but a combination of not drinking much AND being young, gives you no excuse.

What was that about the Ozzies again! Didn't think it would happen given that you couldn't hold your shandy! http://www.cpfc.org/ubb/wink.gif

Burr, us 'oldies' are also suffering from the continual effects of this thing called 'work'. You may have heard of it. Once you eventually begin to participate in this you will suddenly find that your ability to recover decreases alarmingly when you have to leave the bed around 7am. Also, having seen your glass shattering performance at various pubs I don't think you can criticise anyone for not being able to hold their alcohol http://www.cpfc.org/ubb/smile.gif (although you seem to have passed that mantle on to little al).

Nice one MAW http://www.cpfc.org/ubb/smile.gif - did he drop any last night ?

I can see there's more than one "lightweight" here and I have to say I've really enjoyed the last few postings http://www.cpfc.org/ubb/wink.gif

Must've been dodgy beer guys - maybe he's a Millwall fan ? - I was drinking Kronenbourg last night and it tasted better than the football did (!)

Thanks MAW for pointing out that recovery time goes up 10 fold for every year that you pass 30.

For those of you who weren't there here it is in precis

Lightweight is simply not.

Kev T is one of the best salesmen I ever met

Burr is very short and hairy

Paf carries two pairs of glasses around in case one goes out of fashion.

Little Al cant walk in a straight line.

Other than that a good night was had by all.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? NO! It's Little Al body-checking an innocent table! http://www.cpfc.org/ubb/cool.gif

Not again - that would have been worth the admission price on it's own !

Apparently I went from being relatively sober to totally mashed in an instant according to Sweetpea. I phoned her twice on the way home saying I was worried about her. I think I need to start worrying about myself!

And James, Paf doesn't have two pairs of glasses. I whipped them off his head (he didn't notice, you don't think he actually needs them do you?), and sold them back to him in the toilets for a ridiculous sum.

Just been speaking to a mate and he tells me that loads of people had a problem with the "pay-per-view" the other night.

Apparently many people paid their tenner but there was a problem with the registrations and after the "free 15 minutes" viewing had expired, they lost the tranmission.

F*cking marvellous!
