They probably use it to buy goods from Amazon and not realise they can watch football matches from the Prime subscription.
Yep that's me up until now.

If you’ve got a smart TV then you should have an icon somewhere for Prime Video.
Then just log in using the same password you used to set up AP shopping and away you go.
To be honest mate, anything I want to watch I watch on my PC. I leave the telly to Mrs Mazz and those shouty soap opera things. I wouldn't know how to turn the damn thing on let alone how smart it is. I know it's a colour set because I walked past it once. Does that mean it's smart enough? As long as I can watch Amazon Prime online I'll be good to go. :sorted:

Yes Amazon is a pain and it does try to make you sign up to prime when you make a purchase. I have noticed during the check out, when you think it has signed you up to prime. There is a link at the bottom of the text on the left hand side that says something along the lines of continue without prime free trial. It quite small text compared to the continue with prime link and not in the least bit obvious.

Dear Brentford. Looking at map and cannot see any Spoons between Seven Sisters and Spurs. Don't like spending money. Any help gratefully received.

Just had a look at Prime. No free trial but a week for 99p! Don't forget to cancel after a few days 😉

Spouter's Corner is a Wetherspoon pub close to Wood Green tube station (Piccadilly line)
Catch a W3 bus to get to White Hart Lane Station/Tottenham High Road for the stadium

Or there's amother Spoons - The Toll Gate - near Turnpike Lane tube (Picc) ..... but that'll entail 2 buses or a 45-50 min walk to the stadium

Why not just recreate the experience for yourself? Microwave something before you leave the house, stop at an offy and ask for half a dozen cans of whatever has the shortest sell by date and then climb to the top of the nearest tower block for a piss?

I've already had a free trial and don't have another card I can link to another email address so I've just paid the £7.99 and will cancel before the month is up. Happy with that though. iFollow was a tenner a game last season after all, so not a bad deal for a month. I think they might be showing a (insignificant) game tonight. If so I'll road test it so I know what I'm doing Thursday. :sorted:

I’m surprised Spoons hasn’t been boycotted by Bees for its decision to stop stocking Strongbow and thereby removing itself from future Fleet John action.

According to a promotion for Strongbow in the US, the brand has been "helping fuel soccer riots for almost 40 years".

Or so it says here

They probably do something in bottles to keep him happy ?

One at Liverpool Street Station, although I imagine it'll be rammed early on and more pricey than your average Spoons. Train from there to Northumberland Park.

If we get anything from this game it will be massive. We've pretty been good against the higher rated teams this season so no reason we cant draw maybe even steal a win. Still, losing this wouldn't be a disaster so long as it isn't a cricket score.

I think Spoons have boycotted FJ for a lack of recent match report promotion! #stillwaiting

1 Pint of Strongbow and I get a headache. This also happens when I pay more than £2.50 per pint of ale. LOL

The difference is that is a backward looking comparison (unless aunty is trans and you’re deadnaming her). Whereas I was observing the outcome of a perfectly possible set of results over the next 36 hours.

Where is good for a pre-match beer? Is it home fans only close to the ground?

Seen the Beehive mentioned - sounds like it should be popular with Bees on the night 🤷‍♂️

Any advice gratefully received

The Beehive is away friendly but a burger and chips is £11. They do sell Aspalls cider which is very good. Closest station is Bruce Grove.

The Antwerp Arms also away friendly and a decent boozer. Closest station is WHL.

Edit. Sorry for the double post.

Yep. Plus seen a couple of insignificant clubs playing as well to road test it. Seems great. But from what I can figure out, this is 20 games, December only. I don't think they show anything for the rest of the season?

Eh? They have -6GD and are 3 points above us with 0GD so wouldn’t a 1-0 win for us be enough to put us above them?
I read it as plus 6 - my error !

Even if you cancel tomoz you'll get all 30 days so it'll cover the games in Xmas week too.

Sounds good, we’re mad we are and pay £6 for Samosas and can’t even get Burgers at our new ground. We’re promoting D+I so you can get Moroccan Chick pea wraps, Falafalels, and various other assorted unappealing cuisine of the World but not Hot Dogs, Burgers or Chips.
