Where are you drinking? - Play Off Final edition

by Winston Biscuit » 17 May 2017 14:18

Play off final Vs Swansea I went to that pub that was rammed with RFC fans, had Thames Valley police vans outside and the police cleared it in the end and escorted all fans to Wembley as it was getting a bit lively. don't even remember where in London that was. anyone know?

FA Cup semi I was just drinking in the car park of the Premier Inn within eye shot of Wembley.

The lesson I learned from these and from drinking on the Wembley concourse is that a short stumble into the ground pre kick off is much preferred.

Sounds like The Green Man? That's the biggest and most popular pub if you have the East section I think

Brilliant - that pub was really good, great atmosphere there too. I think I will do what I saw others do and sneak some beer in as the queues were ridiculous

That's the one! I think a bloke getting up on top of the bus stop outside and waving his c*ck around was the final straw and the rozzers moved in.

Being a regular at Wembley over the years may I recommend this pub if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle a bit. Many times I've been in there they've given out free sarnie platters and roast potato's.....it's left out of Wembley central station and up the road a little on the opposite side. Allow about 20 -25 minutes though to get tut stadium.

It was the Torch for the Arsenal game, cracking atmosphere but me and my dad had to get 4 beers each by the time we got to the front of the queue to avoid having to face doing it again.

Concourse beers are horrendous, they have around 50 pre-poured pints sitting there and so if you're unlucky you have one that was poured about 3 hours before you ordered it, flat as piss!

Glad we have the torch and Park station again, loved the train in from Twyford and non stop songs about former players on the tube and "we're the inside/outside of the pub" at the torch :D

If we have the same pubs etc as Arsenal game its Alsop Arms at 10.30 for beers then pitch up to Torch at 1ish for the atmosphere (queue for a beer there last time was painful) so will do all my drinking at Baker Street. Sorted.
