For this game... I can see it being one in - one out by 2pm to be honest. There will be plenty of students or people who take a full / half day for this.

I am really keen on Flat Iron but just don't want to be scrambling around finding somewhere if its full.

I'm in the Hyde Park ballot, but so is half of London by the sound of it.

Fado's Irish Pub Atlanta.
Last two games was packed out with ex-pats.
Will have to be early doors and get there by mid-day for the 2pm k.o.

Yeah went on sale Sunday about 5pm, were gone in about 2 seconds, think they're still doing walk-ins but you'd have to be there from midday-2pm I reckon

I watched much of London 2012 in Hyde Park. If the experience tomorrow is anything like that you’re in for a treat

At home on the sofa with the family. Too old to either get soaked in someone else's beer when we win or hit by their flying glass if we lose.......

Was very keen to watch at Hyde Park but looks like I haven't been successful - if anyone had better luck with the ballot and has any spares then I'd much appreciate any help! :scarfer:

Going to watch it with a couple of mates, following the same routine as we did for the Panama and Colombia games - sat in the same positions on the sofa with his 7 yr old son going bananas every time we score. Fortunately our change in routine for the Sweden game didn’t affect the result!!

All you lucky sods able to watch the game tonight, please whatever the result enjoy yourselves but behave yourselves.

No one in the 999 family want to be dealing with crap idiotic drunk behaviour.

Amazing atmosphere at Hyde Park right up until their second goal. Lightening Seeds superb before hand. Well played to the organisers for putting on a great event and I didn't see one bit of trouble, all good spirits.

Absolutely drenched in beer too.
