'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Now that cant be bad can it!

If you are not going to watch Pompey take on Wigan at the JJB, you are in the Pompey area on Saturday night and you plan on watching England in the Rugby world cup final then the Pompey Sports Bar could be the place to be.

It is only £1.50 per pint - which when you think what some places charge is fantastic - and it is free to get in. The added bonus - besides cheering the egg chasers onto hopefully another world cup triumph, to restore some national pride after the footballers defeat in Russia - is the fact that you could also win some free matchday prizes too.

If you buy a drink you enter a competition to win a hospitality table for 10 at the league cup match with Blackburn, if England win the world cup then there will be another competition for a pair of tickets to watch the league cup match.

Had I lived in the area - which sadly I do not - as I will be watching the Rugby anyway at less than two quid a pint - with the added benefit of being able to win something - I would be down there. Although to be honest at the same time if I did live in the area I would have probably taken advantage of the free coach travel - so if I could have got on a coach I would have been travelling back from Pompey's match at the JJB!

Either way this is another fine offer, something, which I am sure plenty will take advantage of as they look to cheer England onto world cup glory - if only we could one day say that about the football again…

All that is left to say now is come on Pompey and England, not forgetting Lewis Hamilton in the Grand Prix - make mine a double, in fact a treble.

grrr...wish i had waited untill it was 15% off - not the 11% off when i bought my shirt ;-). It looks like a lot is being done to attract new fans at the moment - what with the price cuts, free coach trips...football team playing well...

Carpet - Me too about the 15% ... I thought I was getting a bargain the other week when I spent £40 of my hard earned in the shop and was delighted with my 11% off.... Oh well, I was happy at the time so no complaints ..... On a serious note the quality of what they sell (clothing) is top draw and good value for money irrespective of discounts .. I'm well impressed, so much better than previous years ..

£1.50 a pint? I'll be paying nearer £2.50, but the sentiment is the same "come on ENGLAND"

I think I can stay up for the Pompey game on the interactive FOX SPORTS here in Sydney where you can watch one of 4 games scheduled for 12 Midnight (Sorry 3 PM) but I don't think the matchsticks will last come 5AM for the Rugby. I would like to wake and here that England has done it again and pulled off one of the most miraculous comebacks in World Sport - but should they lose they have still done us proud again - against all odds and critics alike.
