I’m in London tomorrow for work and staying at Covent Garden. Anyone recommend any good pubs to watch the match please?

 

I don’t think the bar in the Travelodge will have the best atmosphere.

 

The Maple Leaf, 41 Maiden Lane.

 

Big screen plus several others inside so you should get a good view. Get in there early though as it’s always busy.

Last night, one of my mates who used to live in London recommended there or ther Porter House too.

I think we'll win tonight. Whatever happens Semi Final Finalists, Finalists, , Winners, the team have far exceeded people's expectations, I thought we'd be a quarter final team at best. It's been brilliant and long may the optimistic feeling around the team continue.

Christ, I haven’t been this worked up about an England game since Portugal in 2006. 

 

If we lose, then please arrange for someone to sweep me off the floor of the Dog and Parrot in Newcastle. If we win... do likewise.

Did a refurb on the Maple Leaf a few years ago, great bar.

It's raining quite hard in Moscow just now. This might help us actually as Croatia won't be so used to it! Modric might slip up!

Doesn't bother me who wins but I'd like to see a France v England final but can see Croatia winning this 2-1

A quick search on Google and Croatia has more rainfall than the UK (Yes, I'm that sad lol )

But Southgates boffins will already know about the rainfall this and will have worked out with Adidas and Nike which studs work best in these conditions. Attention to detail - marginal gains er.... help - looking for reasons to believe!
