Best places in Swindon to watch football, in particular the England game.

Usually go with the steam or the woodands edge, but canít be bothered with the dickheads. I donít mind the boisterous-ness (in fact I prefer it) and I donít even mind getting beer thrown over me (I own both a shower AND a washing machine). But I can do without the fighting, broken tvís and broken bottles

Itís a pity walkabout has never really been replaced as a sports venue. I always thought Bakers Street on wood street would be perfect if they set the projector up on the main wall, but alas

Sadly the Edge is my local by default, well since the Foresters became a trendy Italian eatery. The staff are playing down the trouble the other day and praising the insurance Co. for replacing the broken TV the following day after they saw it on the ITV news (yeah right they did), I could have put money in there being trouble as there will be tomorrow, the place has form for this type of behaviour. Also it is worth noting that the brewery Greene King have reclassified the Edge a being a drinking pub with food and the Brookhouse being a food pub with drink. Furthermore the staff are blaming recent trouble on a mixture of the Edge being cheaper than the the Tawny and Blunsdon Arms for attracting the Ďhere we go, here we goí type of patron coupled with the new housing estate at the top of Swinley Drive being predominantly social housing..... youíll get a better class of thug at the Moonies or Deers leap.

Yeah, there were scraps during and after the panama game - Iím sure thereíll be more security tomorrow (whether theyíll do anything is another matter) but can easily see it getting ugly if we lose

Dislike watching in pubs unless abroad...too many day triper fans taking bollocks (in addition to the educated bollocks that I talk).

LL, the archetypal "had his passport confiscated so had to stay at home and chuck gas cannisters at the big screen in the pub" hoolie. It's people like you who drag our game down Wink

there's always one agro bloke who talks like he's going to tear up the pub because England gave away a corner/throw in/free kick/didn't score from 50 yards. Always.

Never seen one of them in any actual fight, but tend to gravitate away from them anyway

What the fuck did they find to fight about whilst we were trouncing a shit panama team, boredom??

Then again Boyzone played at the Racecourse in the next village last Friday night and their was a massive dust up at that, police called the lot!

Nowt as queer as folk!
