World Cup Venue

Believe it or not, we are only just over two months from the kick off of South Africa 2010. The reason I have raised this, is because we have yet to decide on a venue for our viewings. It was discussed on Saturday, and for the first game the general consensus is that we give the Villager in Wilsden first dibs. It has in the past served the cause well, although 2006 was a bit of a let down, the Con club next door was much the better bet. Of course it doesn't have to be in sheep bothering land, apart from Helmet and Sandro there aren't many of us who live there, but we have tried a few different places before, without much joy. Finding a boozer that strikes the right balance is difficult. You don't want a bunch of knobs who buy an England shirt every four years, and think it makes them the heir to Fabio Capello. You know the type, the one that will start carping on how over rated Wayne Rooney is, because he hasn't scored a hat trick in the first 45 seconds. Females are a bit of a pickle as well. Yes, it's nice to have a few around to fetch you a pint at half time, but you don't want to be inundated with loads of them asking what position Beckham is playing, and commenting on how ugly the Ivory Coast kit is. The again, at the rate Pubs are going out of business, we may have to do with what ever we can find.
