Could this be an own goal? Poachers are charging their customers £5 and giving them a pot roast included in the price.

Wouldn't it be better to charge £5 for the pot roast and allow the public into a public house?

They have been charging on the door for the major football events for years. And to be fair the atmosphere is brilliant. I watched the Argentina game there during the last world cup, ok I paid a fiver to get in, but what a day!!

I think the Greyhound were also charging....

I used to be with it. But then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it, and what's it seems scary and weird.

So if you pay to go into a pub, is there any requirement to purchase anything at the bar?

So you pay £5 to watch a game of football that's "free" to watch at home and you spend you're time at a crowded bar trying to get a drink!

Talking of drinking I see on the news that during the England and Paraguay game the English players was stopped by officials to having a drink on the side line where I noticed on a number of occasions that the Paraguay team didn't seem to have a problem getting some fluids in them during the game, do we stand a change this year if England are going to be singled out by the Referee/officials
