West Ham fan here in peace.. Wednesday night in Southampton

Recommended Posts

Firstly, it honestly is a fresh of breath air to see you lot doing so well instead of the usual "big clubs".. I really hope you can finish in the top 4 season...

 

It's going to be a really tough evening for us on Wednesday and I would bite your hand off for a draw..

 

The reason i'm here is to ask a few questions about Southampton in gerneral....

 

Coming down for the game on Wednesday and staying the night.. is there much to do on a Wednesday night in Southampton?

 

I know there is two universities so I'm guessing there is a good chance something will be happening after the game?

 

Thanks in advance.

Get in a taxi and ask to go to Bedford Place. Loads of bars around there that should start filling with students from about 10pm onwards.

 

Hope that helps and hope you lose ;)

Why do these posts always start "xxxxx IN PEACE" it's not like we expect you to storm the server room and occupy the mb.

 

It is well known we have the scariest internet firm.

Only three years ago that both of our clubs were in the Championship so it has been good to see that teams like ours can compete despite the hugely unfair financial advantage given to the wealthy 5 or 6.

As for what to do after the game on Wednesday, one of the Wetherspoons pubs is a good place to drown your sorrows in quality beer at low prices, and they do food, if you can call it that, until 11pm. The nearest to St Marys is the Admiral Sir Lucius Curtis by Ocean Village. If you go back to the City Centre you won't get there until after 10.00pm. If you want a night spot, there are several to choose from, as Google will show you.

Don't wear any colours. We have a notorious firm out on a Wednesday and they will chase you pit of the city if they recognise you as an outsider.

 

Good advice, regardless.

Bedford place is okish, if you want a decent night head to oxford street around dock gate 4, so much of a better night out

 

Bedford is full on students.

 

Maybe, but Oxford Street will be dead on a Wednesaday night.

 

There's half priced steak night at both Coco Rio and Marshals on a Wednesday!

Can't believe that is a 'Spoons! Was down a few weeks ago and saw it, thought it was the most ridiculous name for a pub I had ever seen and found myself taking a picture of the sign. Would never have guessed it was a Weatherspoons!

The Admiral Curtis is quite a good place for a pre-match drink, being a short walk to the SMS, although as you'd expect it gets very busy. You get home and away fans mixing happily there and there is reasonably priced parking behind the pub or on nearby streets.

I'd echo this. Ever since the Battle of Whitechapel underpass when 15 saints routed 60 West Ham relationships have been strained between the two firms. Saints top lads are angry that the scene was deleted from Rise of the Footsolider and there was no mention of this in the ICF book. Since then Saints boys have been looking to shut the loud mouth cockneys up once and for all but West Ham have never shown since, no doubt paralyzed with fear and the memories still fresh of their last hiding. So yes, take my advice, dont talk like Billy Mitchell, keep your nut down and you'll be alright. If anyone asks you if you know any of the ICF say no, or you can forget about Blue, you'll just be covered in your own claret.

I'll bear that in mind, thanks :lol:

Bedford Place/London Road is best for bars. Avoid Leisure World at all costs.

 

Is Leisure World still open ?

 

When I was over at Xmas I went to the Odeon in there and there rest was closed and looking extremely run-down.

It looked like that when it opened.

Order the special edition DVD box set of rise of the footsolider, watch the deleted scenes then come back here and tell me who should be taken seriously or not pal.

What quality beer exactly do Weatherspoons serve up?

It hasn't been my experience in the past.

They sell Brewdog beer now and a decent US IPA.

If you're looking for a market to trash Green Street style then head to the one on St Mary's Street. The lads drinking in the Kingsland Tavern won't mind some propa nawty Hammers fans acting up on their manor.

We have students from all around the world working on projects for a few months, then heading back to their uni; almost all of them comment on what a shiiitehole Southampton is for night life / things to do.

 

They are here for 6 months at a time, and spend their weekends in other towns (Brighton, Bath, Bournemouth etc)

 

Unless you are down here to count how many student flats we have in the city, don't expect a great night out. Especially after letting 4 in....;)

Jesters.

 

Trust me. I'm a scientist (student).

 

I've heard this is the kind of place that you ought to have on a pair of shoes that you don't mind getting ruined if you're going!

I went to St Marys for the first time in ages this year and walked past teh Frog and Frigate - sad to see it boarded up - real sawdust on the floor pub, no chairs and blokeplaying guitar in the corner behind a wooden cage

 

fun nights

 

Don't even get me started on the loss of the Canute :(

Yep, my last housemate had a pair of Jesters' shoes - £2 from Primark, replaced every month or so. Turns out vomit, urine and unknown beverages is a tough combination to wash out.

Does anyone know of a bar called Jesters that doesn't have a dubious rep?

 

I know Jesters in Southampton and a Jesters in Plym. Both have dubious reps.

Used to drink in the Tavern before games, some nawty geezers in there. Think I saw more fights in there in a year than in the rest of my life combined..

I didn't think there were TWO universities. Obviously Southampton University and another ?

It has, and Derek the guitarist is the new landlord!

 

Stories like this give me renewed optimism for the future...
