    Give her my regards Marve.

    I believe she lost her log in details in the last site migration but is still active on Facebook.

    No you didn't as I firmly believe this entire encounter is fictional but helps you perpetuate the image you have.

    I used to live about 50 yards past said pub in the white apartment block by the corner with Aubert Park.

    you are the village idiot so I would expect such a response from you. Phone and ask the landlord about it if you want (believe he is Northern Irish and looked like he has been doing it for a very long time - might remember you).

    It's not. The ceiling is red, there are red pillars holding the ceilings up. There are red curtains with disgusting patterns on. The drinks selection is awful. It's cash only. It stinks. I wasn't there long enough to venture to the gents but I should think that they would be another level of vile.

    The place, I assume, is only ever frequented when a game is on.

    Very nice apartment as it goes, certainly for the time which was 99-2002. No such thing as The Emirates then.

    Bang on for my purposes. Close to the tube and close to the football. Mrs found it as part of a property search but I think was at first unaware of just where it was, presented to me as an option which clearly worked for me.

    I remember it had a "concierge", the amiable Roy whose only job from what I could tell was to intercept parcels which were delivered during the working day.

    There would be / would have been a regular enough bunch of people in there on non-match evenings.

    Option was to walk to Holloway Road or Higbury Barn.
