Two for the price of one here. You can use the Armoury before your trip to see 10-Man City (our new name) or the so-called “proper” football at Edgeley Park.
The proper football last Saturday starts at 2 min 19 secs on this clip.
I actually popped in just as County v Harrogate ended, which meant a) beer was being pulled through quickly (good) and b) you couldn’t move (bad).
The Armoury is a classic Stockport multi-roomer, with highly reliable Unicorn, as I think our recent US visitors can confirm. Plenty of Robbies being drunk, but as you’ll see just as much Carling and Strongbow. Not much discussion of CloudwaterGate, just two sets of fans being overly pleasant to each other.
County fans seemed sanguine about losing two points to a 50 yard own-goal in the 89th minutes, but they’re tucked in between “new” Darlington and Halifax in the league table, and have away days in Fylde and Kidderminster to look forward to. As do I.
Of course, there are other pubs in Edgeley for a pre and post-match pint, but how could you resist this ?
But if you want a great view, Level 3 of the Etihad on a bright, chilly matchday is the place.
