Anyone going to London for the game and know any pubs around London or Uxbridge that have availability?

The Sport Bar at Haymarket is big and has a lot of screens but the downside is the quality of the beers can quite be bad. It tends to be the bar through the back that has this problem. I've also never seen a team I support win when they've been on in there 😆

If you fancy somewhere less hectic than the town center then Dickens Inn is normally decent and they often make an effort for sporting events. St Katherine's Dock is a bit less busy and has some good places for eating and drinking.

I used to live in SE1 and would pop into Belushis in London Bridge to watch the football. Its not to everyone's taste as its a bit backpacker esque but I quite liked it.

There's loads of places though so you shouldn't struggle even for a big game.

I've got refundable rooms booked at Kings Langley. Still undecided about whether to go down or not.

Preferably somewhere close to Hyde park LPF and somewhere within a reasonable travel distance of Uxbridge as that’s where we are staying. Seriously struggling to find many pubs that have availability

The Rileys sports bar would have been your best shout but I was surprised to see that it's still closed. Let me have a think about what else round there is ok for football mate.

I can't vouch for this place as I haven't been but seems to have availability as the date isn't blacked out and the England v Scotlabd game is listed in the fixture list still. It's close to Hyde Park and Baker Street should get you back to Uxbridge on the tube I think.

Cheers again LPF - have sent an enquiry so fingers crossed! Not even fussy about the standard of the pub so long as it shows the football and is close to Hyde park

John Swinney was on the radio this morning - punters being advised not to travel unless their journey was essential.

Does heading down to the London area to watch a game locally on TV meet this criteria ?

If that's the case then the SG should have rules in place that reflect the level of risk they belive is faced. It's not fair to expect people to have gone through numerous lockdowns, relax those lockdowns that will allow people to do certain things and then tell them they shouldn't be doing things they've just been told they are allowed to do under the changes in the guidelines.

If its a genuine risk to travel then the SG have to bite the bullet and take the responsibility of implementing unpopular decisions and articulate the rational behind the decision.

I think lockdowns have been a necessary evil that were needed because the initial response was crap but its not fair to shift the onus onto individuals in the way that statement appears to (I haven't heard it so just going on the above).

The ESSENTIAL aspect of travelling 400 miles to watch games on TV is difficult to justify in the present circumstances regardless of what restrictions are.are not in force.

Just as is the “need” to fly to Portugal, the issue that Swinney was responding to.

The SG is damned if they do, and damned if they don’t.

Glasgow, East Renfrewshire and Moray are (or have recently been) problem areas, and Clackmannanshire is now apparently a cause for concern, so the virus is still on the agenda for travel.

That's my point though - if they're saying that only essential travel is allowed then then why have they relaxed all of the rules? It was only essential travel that was allowed in the more stringent tiers of lockdown anyway so why change the rules to say travel to London is OK but then say you shouldn't because it's not essential and there's potentially still a risk? It doesn't make sense.

The only ones with the information to make proper decisions about risk are the Government.

They are dammed if they do and dammed if they don't but if there is risk then that needs to be managed by the Government and not individuals. Some decisions Governments have to make are unpopular.

If there is still risk in a group of lads travelling to London to sit in a pub and watch a game of football there's a very high likelihood that group of lads (no offence Kyle) aren't going to be qualified or even have all of the data to determine what the real risk is. That's got to be the SGs job.

The Scottish Government has given the go ahead to set up a Fanzone In Glasgow for the duration of the Euros. They will be showing the games there with food available, drinks etc. This will be situated at Glasgow Green and will accommodate up to 6,000 fans per day.

He can take the advice, turn it sideways and stick it up his hoop.

They are saying that only essential travel is advised.

The SG can`t impose an absolute movement prohibtion indefinately.

People need to justify and be responsible for their own actions.

I think he said don't come without a ticket or safe place to watch the game.

Yes, a safe place was mentioned.

It`d be interesting to learn what might be considered a safe place ..........or more to the point - an unsafe one in this scenario.

You're absolutely right but I think that goes back to my point above. How can ordinary folk quantify that?

I'll be traveling down to meet mates, half us scottish, half of us English. A wee Air BnB out in the sticks. Who needs all the chaos in London when you can just enjoy it with your best mates.

Absolutely crazy to be travelling the length of the country to watch a football match, in a pub, during a Pandemic. I wonder if the same folk condemning people for not taking the vaccine will condone this sort of thing

We took the decision to cancel our trip to London as this was the safest situation for all. It is not clever in the current situation.
