    Hi Hoppy,

    Looks like you will be spending a fair amount of money watching that many games in the pub !!

    Unless of course you happen to forget your wallet a few times

    Now does anyone know where I can get a St Georges Cross eye patch ???

    Cheers,

    Del.

    Aye! Just like I did in 1998, 2002 and 2006 World Cups but I will be spending in local pub more than previous World Cups. Have you forgetten Silk Kite is JDW so it bound to save me monies..

    Haha! True.. Luckily Fox Inn is only around the corner from my house. So it shouldn't be problem. Unless I am in Silk Kite or White Lion.. good 30 mins walk from my house!

    I am sure I saw some dodgy shop near Moon Under The Water In Cradley.. I heard they are selling fast due some regular in JDW buying them in bulk...

    Determined to watch every match of the tournament (except perhaps the 3rd/4th place play-off, which is a total waste of everybody’s time), much to the annoyance of Mrs Gazebo.

    Have Friday and Saturday off work, will probably try and watch all 5 games in the pub, as long as I can rely on finding somewhere with a decent atmosphere and not too many idiots, especially for the England match. I will be at work for the following two days, although seeing as my job predominantly involves sitting about watching sport anyway, “work” may not be the appropriate word.
    And you can really taste the hops!

    Plan to watch them all as I'm not working at the moment - and haven't really been looking for work either!
