Where will you be watching the World Cup? If you are interested in joining (or avoiding) England fans, here’s the scoop from one fan we know:
Not sure where the English will go for the footie this year — last time round we took over Malones — however, they got a bit annoyed as it is run by Canadians and they weren’t best pleased at beer being thrown over their big screen, rampant swearing, two Argentina supporting Chinese getting doused with beer and then very upset and a chair being thrown over the balcony.
It may be Big Bamboo this year — Bryce has promised to nail down the chairs and ban Germans to prevent trouble — you can take the boys out of England but sadly not England out of the boys.
