Murrayfield gets ready
Found myself walking the dog around the back of Murrayfield earlier, preperations for the visit of the French tomorrow well underway. I used to go to every Scotland match here but this year with tickets at £50 and £35 I’m making a stand and the SRU can piss right off. I’ll wait till the autumn tests when the tickets are a lot more reasonable.
The North Stand of the stadium with a watery pish… sorry, beer tent below. £4 for a pint of watery gut rot in a plastic glass. Champion.
A wider view of the North Stand, not a bad looking stadium actually, much better than the any of Edinburgh’s other stadiums.
Had hoped I might have seen the team out on the training pitches but it was not to be, this was the closest I got!
“Fish and chips please!”
“Certainly sir, would like to fill out the loan application forms first?”
Yes, Murrayfield food, dearer than the watery pish and just as likely to make you able to crap through the eye of a needle the next day.
Does anyone buy programmes at Scotland matches? I don’t, it would be guaranteed to be lost in the resulting pish up afterwards.
Even the pubs and hotels on Corstorphine Road were getting beer tents put up to cope the with huge amount of people that will be about here tomorrow.
Ah, this must be the VIP parking? A well worn Barbour wax jacket a must for entry…
