    I've said before that I marginally prefer the Alex to the Brunswick which would make it a Saddo's pub by definition.

    I look upon the royal wedding and their clan as being very similar to footbore, a total irrelevance that is grossly over inflated by the media. I now know who is involved in the cup final so I'll expect the hordes of morons making a nuisance when I return from the West Midlands, or maybe not as someone told me that the only Mancunian that supports the red team is Terry Christian.

    I must admit that at the moment I'm finding the wedding even more boring than the cup final, something I didn't think could possibly happen.

    Watch the wedding with a glass of champagne then watch the football with a couple of pints of London Pride . It is called Great Britain for a reason. Enjoy.

    I am really hoping the Kingston Workmens Club And Institute doesn't have the telly on during the beer festival tomorrow,
    If it does I shall ignore. I'm firmly in Aqualungs camp here, however the cup finals a different matter, come on you blues, (said without conviction).
