The fact that we were both **** and late didn't pass comment, and when the opposition didn't turn up reducing our game to four-on-four between ourselves, they let us use the turf for free.
    Yeah, I googled Goals, my local 5-a-sides is a Goals centre and it's pretty decent.

    Two more questions for now:

    1. Any good kebaberies for a 3am drunken munch, or are they all much of a muchness?
    2. Anywhere that does a particularly good English breakfast?

    Only ever had an English Breakfast in Leeds in a hotel etc. All good, but the real good & greasy ones I've never had.

    1. All much of a very cheap muchness. Hundreds of them, all with kebab, pizza and burgers made by a lone Asian man who doesn't wear gloves. Pizza > Kebab, though. Your typical kebab is around £2.50-£3.00, 11" pizza around £3.50-£4.00.

    2. I've kind of alarmingly realised I've never gone out for a proper breakfast here. The one time i went out to a pub with the intention of buying a full breakfast was at a sports bar to watch the RWC, and that was a crap breakfast. Outside of your bog standard Wetherspoon's affair or B&B, I can't really think where you'd go.

    I'm always suspicious of shops that sell bait.

    Well I don't know if that's really that cheap wrt Liverpool or Glasgow, have no reference point for that other than Loughborough, where pizza is roughly twice as much.

    2. Haha, I'm the same when it comes to Glasgow. There's a pretty good cafe near where the missus stays but that's a bit more upmarket than a fry-up.

    What is this muppet talking about, you go to Sharen's Den on Cardigan Road, between Hyde Park and Burley Park Rail. Of course you do.

    Really, veto'd Newcastle? It caters for all, from damn, damn good rock clubs to drunken brawls with pissed up footballers. Awesome paintball place just off the A1 too.


    Don't know too much of Leeds, only been on student nights out - Hope its Fab Cafe has improved though, wasn't a patch on Manchesters last time I was in (didn't even have a Dalek ffs)

    I think that's roughly the correct price for a pizza from a Pakistani takeaway.

    i wouldnae recommend nation of shopkeepers - it is, or used to be, great for a night of quality boozing with live music but then it transformed into hipster central

    3 pizzas for 10 quid's the standard at yer generic asian takeaway outside the centre and that on its own is worth a trip over from stockholm, thinking about it...
