I’d just rework a load of Specials songs if I was a Cov fan. Wouldn’t work with our Makina paced singing.

 

 

 

‘Do the Dog’ to ‘We are Cov’ would lend itself to the seemingly required tempo!

Vancouver Whitecaps’ stadium was booked for the BC Home and Garden Show :lol: so they played their CONCACAF Champions League match v Tigres (Mexico) here in Victoria instead. I went, 1-1 with a late Tigres equaliser free kick by former France international Gignac. Sell out at 5700ish. 
 

Majority there were Mexicans I’d guess.

 

I’ve now been to champions leagues in Europe, Asia and North America. Need to do the Libertadores next.

Just a thought at the moment as probably won't find anybody else up for it. Stag do in Belfast next month and Glentoran are at home in the cup quarter final. Seems handy for the city centre and cheap to get in (£13 league price). Anyone experienced any NI domestic stuff? Can you drink on the concourse? All the important questions need answering ☺.

Genuinely thought you were inviting us randos to a match on a stag do at first.

@Scoreboard82 I haven't been to The Oval in a few years but last time there was no drinking in the stands. Two bars though and open during the game.

 

Not the handiest from the centre. 5a bus (I think) will take you from the city centre to the ground. About 20 mins. Don't know if the Glider serves it since it came in. 

 

Shite area. I'd recommend drinking in the city before and after. :lol:

There'll not be that many there for Cavalry vs Orlando City next week, that's for sure. Bizarre choice of venue for that one. It's not even been that cold here.

Not done Glentoran but there was drinking on the concourses at Crusaders.

Mainly because it's pretty unique I'd say. Old distinctive main stand, open old school concrete terraces and fencing, industrial backdrop. If you're a ground nonce you're not looking for modern comforts. Not many grounds these days of that type that haven't either already been bulldozed or re-developed on all four sides.

@Scoreboard82

The best option would would probably be to get the glider (every 10/15 mins from City Hall or Custom House Square) to Connswater and walk over, don't get the 5a as it goes somewhere else entirely. Agree with the bit in bold :lol:

Thanks. Excuse my ignorance but is the glider a bus/train?

It's a bendy bus with a fancy name. :lol: The G1 that runs between east and west Belfast is what you'd want, towards Dundonald. #BelfastBusChat

Dundonald. Reminds me of taking my daughter over there when she was young. Had been some cheap flights etc. Anyway, we wanted to go skating at the "Dundonald ice bowl". Got on a bus. Told the driver where we were going. Now I'm usually good with accents but I was convinced the driver told us to get off at what I thought was a pub, "The Horse Bottle". Journey goes on and I don't see this pub. Best ask the driver I thought. Turns out he'd told us to get off at the HOSPITAL  which we'd  passed 😃. Luckily the bus went on a circular route and we stayed in til we passed again.
