Queens Park Rangers 23/08/2003
The Green 172-174 Uxbridge Road, Shepherds Bush, London, W12 7JP.
On the corner of Shepherd’s Bush Green (junction with Wood Lane and Uxbridge road). About 5 minutes walk from both Shepherd’s Bush tube stations (Hammersmith & City and Central lines) and 10 minutes from Loftus Road. Former Wetherspoons pub now selling Greene King real ales plus guests. Best to avoid wearing colours here.

Wrexham 30/08/2003
Turf Hotel Mold Road, LL11 2AH.
Marstons beers and bar snacks served. Literally right next to the Racecourse Ground and opposite Wrexham station. Perfectly safe for away fans but because of its location it gets very busy on match days so get there early if possible.

Blackpool 13/09/2003
The Wheatsheaf 196 Talbot Road, FY1 3AZ.
Good Beer Guide pub just 100 yards from Blackpool North train station (although this is a longish walk or a taxi ride from Bloomfield Road). Serves Theakstons and guest ales and has a good food menu.
