There are no football grounds in England with a pub on every corner.
Man, you're on fire. It's only through you that this thread is able to hold on by its fingernails. Just out of interest, could you tell our viewers if there are any football grounds with pubs on three of their corners? Tricorn coverage, as it were.

I've been there before. New threads, gasping for breath. But I will try and help you to keep it alive. Timing is everything I find. You should never start a thread of such trivia on a matchday.

I'm afraid I don't know the answer to your question, but I do know Bury doesn't/didn't as it reminds me of a game against them years ago. Something that I still find funny to this day, even though it probably isn't, particularly. I was standing outside on Braemar Road, drinking heavily before the game (actually I can't be sure of that, it may have started), when a know it all Bury supporter walked past with his lady wife. Having just walked past the Griffin, he said to her (and please imagine a Buryshire accent here), "I'll tell you something you didn't know lass. This is the only ground in't country that's got a pub on the corner".

I still don't know why I found this funny, but I still do. :unsure:

Slabheaded lump Harry Maguire has scored more goals in World Cup knockout games than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo

Pakistan, who have never qualified for a major competition like the World Cup, or the Euros or stuff, play to home crowds of just 1,500 - 2,500. FIFA rank them 200th in world which is pretty low, considering there are only 195 countries. With a population of 212 million, it's almost as if they don't like the game. And yet they produce 80% of the world's footballs.

Mazz I have to say it's highly unlikely that Pakistan will ever qualify for the Euros

Had several players playing in Denmark and a couple in Non League in England, in the squad for their last World Cup Qualifiers.
