Sports Village Footy question

PostThu Oct 26, 2017 1:40 pm

I'm not sticking this in the football forum as for some reason the other threads on the subject are in here. And I didn't want to ask this under one of the other threads in case it disrupts selection. Anyroad, do you lot go to the pub after playing? I ask because two of the pubs I go in down here are close to football facilities and are regularly (that is, every night in one of the pubs) invaded by post-game players. And they come in still wearing their kits, often exposing their injuries for the admiration of all, having clearly not had a wash. The filthy fuckers :))

We all just get in our cars and go home.

Back in the day, when it was at Southlands and it was organised via the other place (before this place even existed) most of us would go to the Bar in Southlands for a swifty after the game. They closed the bar down years ago though, which nipped it in the bud and ever since we've just gone home. No pubs near either Southlands or the Sports Village.

Ah, right. Perhaps it's a London thing then. I was in a third pub the other night and, sure enough, in they came. It's everywhere (in London).

Well you could always come down to London for your games. Then there's no end of pubs for post-performance piss-up opportunities. Where you can shout at each other, gawp into your (and each other's) mobile 'phones, display your injuries and, as I saw last night, do your stretching exercises. Even if you don't like each other :happy:

There was a bunch came in last night who were a bit different from the rest. They had nice shirts with a band and were sponsored by the Peckham Pelican, which on further research seems to be a 'venue'. They all sat round one table and didn't throw their stuff everywhere, even though there was plenty of room as it was a Monday. They weren't at all shouty but, when they were sat down, one of them (the captain?) gave a little speech and the others gave a little round of applause. I'll look out for them and excuse them not having had a wash.

So is this round of applause a thing? Another bunch was at it last night. This time the receiver of said applause sat at the head of the table while the others applauded on several occasions. He also had a (small) Christmas tree on his head.

I haven't seen the Peckham Pelican bunch since, but last night there was one in there who was a dead ringer for Kevin de Bruyne. I'm pretty sure it wasn't actually Kevin de Bruyne.

Thanks to a lift I got back on Saturday, I now know where Sports Village is. Wasn't like that in my day.

It were all "Prissick Base" when I were a lad. And it looks like there's houses on the pitch and putt 'course'.

Yeah it’s all built up now really, but it’s a good set up, Best in the area for sports and leisure so it attracts many people too, especially us on a Tuesday and Sunday!
