God, was that the bloke who sits near me? Moans all the time and gets incredibly angry very quickly about nothing

This is the end of the discussion.
Hallelujah!
He's said that before - I reckon he'll be back when Eales doesn't buy us a hot dog this season, another example of us fans being fleeced.

What is this Mzuri board you talk of - sounds like my kinda place.

Always one for a bargain I popped along to The Three Horseshoes with Hoglette yesterday with a fistful of the free drinks vouchers and was pleasantly surprised. It's a very tidy Greene King pub with typical Greene King pub grub and a nice outdoor area if the weather is kind. Very friendly lady behind the bar confirmed the drinks offer stood so being a lager lout I ordered a pint of Kronenberg, normal price £3:95, and Hoglette asked for an Archers and lemonade and was told she could have a double if she'd like; she DID like!

The only slight change to the original offer of one drink per voucher is that it's now one drink per voucher per visit as it seems the locals were nipping to the stadium to buy a tenner's worth of tickets and having a very cheap piss up!

As she's never lived within 50 miles of Oxford I took the opportunity of showing Hoglette how to play Aunt Sally but we had to stop after her first two sticks as they both ended up on the outside decked seating area and she would surely have killed someone if we'd carried on!

Only a five minute drive to the ground too.

Looks like the new draw is dying on it's feet. The first prize of 'up to £750' last night was announced by PRB as £250! I didn;t believe my ears the first time but he repeated it.

Pretty sure it was £750 at the Wimbledon match.

Hog gets his way as the new format is dropped because of lack of interest, and we'll revert to the old version.
