Match day ritual

Recommended Posts

Ritual wise on a home game day after lunch pre-covid I'd always walk the 2 miles to Starks Park and try to get at least a  couple of drinks in before the 200 club bar closed (found long ago that Rovers are far easier on the senses in soft focus!). Then post match a few more in the 200 club then walk home frequenting one other watering holes en-route. Away games is regimental, always lunch - car - pre-matchpint (where possible) -  game - car - watering holes - home, the only variation is on East Coast games where Scotrail and more beer comes into play

Superstitions wise I almost  never wear a Rovers top to games and I also stopped drinking out of a Rovers mug before the game on a match day, in fact I got so paranoid at one point it got so if I thought I'd even seen one of my Rovers mugs we'd get beat.  Paranoid or just a typical superstitious fan? I never had any such mad superstitions when I actually played sport.

For games by car I always take the same road up to my Dad's, for games by train always make sure I get a pint in Aitchies Ale House (previously Balaclava Bar before they closed).  

Always go into the club shop to have a look out of habit, even though I have zero intention usually of buying anything. Normally to try and get some kind of heat.

I know it's currently closed but has Brian still got Aitchies? I heard he was selling up.

 

De Ja vu have I asked this of you before?

I think it's the sons who run it now. Think they bought the place next door as well.
