Are England playing?


Are England playing?
Hindley Arms on the corner of Market St/Albert St in Hindley, where you can watch the footy on 15 screens! After the performance so far, its bad enough watching on 1, never mind 15.

I hope the beer is better than the appearance of the building.

'The Fingers'! I have had my earwax blown to smithereens in there a few times in my youth. They used to have a brilliant Rock night.

It used to be the Hand & Hart when I frequented the place every Friday night many moons ago, it was one of the walk we did, starting from the Spinners and then every pub to the Bird and then back to Ince, to finish the night off in the labour club

Right Aitch, knew it as the fingers by the Hand & Heart sign they had.

looking at the chimney pots on top of the building, the nickname fingers seems very apt

I agree with Mick,,the footballers are an embarrassment to their country..They have no pride, they don't give a Damn, they are taking your money and playing with it, but it isn't football they are playing and if they don't turn this around, the whole lot should be fired.
