why is it that some teams do not even bother to have a drink after the game. :wacko:

twice in the last week players have not even bothered to socialise after the game against us.last wednesday we played away to portreath and most of our side went back to the rugby club even though we lost 6-1 and were s**t. and today we beat halstown res. at home 3-2 and all their players walked straight past out bar and did not come in. :blink:

the most annoying thing was we go to the expense of providing food for away teams and as with every other club funds are hard to come by let alone waste on inconsiderate people.

life is serious enough folks at least stop and have one drink with your opponents after a game.teams are built off the pitch as well as on it. :smiley20:

So people may have better things to do!!! ie, family and things planned for the evening!!! Its not a rule to have a drink after the game, but i can see where your coming from but just think about it people may have more important things to do other than talking about football or the village bike the team stud wants to put 1 though!!!

Simple mate, don't go back to there's when you play the reverse fixture! It's part and parcel of a Saturday afternoon as far as i'm concerned, most sides do lay on food for the teams and it's a good laugh to go back have a pint and a chip butty! Just stopping for a pint won't take to much time out of a planned evening out.

Simple answer Mr Eddy is, a complete lack of respect. Deano, open your mind fella. I understand what you're saying BUT I'm sure that not EVERY PLAYER has better things to do?. If a player can have no problems showing up and spending say half an hour in the changing room before and after each game with 90 minutes inbetween aswell, then why on earth would they not have another half hour to go and have even a quick drink and show a bit of respect for a club that has accommodated you on the day and maybe even laid on some food for you and your team-mates.

Things such as food, showers, lighting etc etc all cost the home team money at the end of the day, respect shown to them for their efforts cost's sweet FA.

In my opinion players should go back and socialise, there is the opportunity to unwind and have a laugh, it also gives an opportunity to leave all hostilaties on the pitch. Everyone who is on the pitch for the 90 minutes are out for the win and are 100% serious but in the bar afterwards the other side of peoples personalties come out and that is how you get to know people properly.

I personally have got a running rivalry with at least 1 player from most teams and on the pitch it is blood and thunder and I can be a nightmare, but once I am back in bar people realise that I am actually quite a nice guy (even though I do say so myself) and just out for a laugh.

P.s Geachy you are just tight and don't want to put your hand in your pocket, only joking mate, hows things have you still got your medal from the presentation evening?

Its a forum based on all aspects of junior football from refs to results, or fixtures to matters after the 90 mins of your game is up if you dont agree or dislike certain threads then quite simply dont post.

As mariner said, "if you don't like a topic, don't comment on it".. It may not be the end of the world if a team does not go for a drink IN YOUR OPINION.. In most other peoples opinions I'm sure that showing respect towards others, whether they be individual people or a team of people, is extremely important indeed.

You are giving the impression that respect towards others and efforts that they have made are not important to you. Would you say you are a popular person Deano?. I am only asking because I find it difficult to believe that anybody with any amount of respect for anybody other than themself could be in any way popular?.

How can i say if i am popular and not sound big headed!!! As i have said i do try and stay to have a drink at most clubs as long as i don't need to shot off!!! But not everyone can!! But you know which clubs put food on and mostly the clubs tell the boys this and say to them to stay for a pint!!

I can see the argument from both points, however, I do not think it is disrespectful if you do not go back to the other teams pub. I have always been under the impression that it is out of courtesy that teams go for a drink, however, a couple of factors must be taken into account. The travelling distance and time it takes for you to get home can be up to an hour sometimes, this means that by time you get off the pitch ensure everything is signed and all equipment is picked up it could be about 1645 add the traveling time onto this and you do not get back to home until nearly six. This may not seem late to alot of people but if you have things to do or even work, ( I have to leave early from some games due to work committments if I have far to travel).

Second consideration has to be taken that the old lets go for a pint when your driving is just not pc any more especially with the crackdown on drink driving.

I understand that it is part and parcel of the game to mix between the two teams as this gives you a rapor with fellow players also it is good for networking for the next season but I do think that considerations must be taken into account from the home side if the away players do not go back to their drinking hole.

luffy i understand what your saying but last saturday we played at sennan.this will be our longest journey in mining 2 this season.we lost to a goal deep in time added on.we went back for a drink after the game and yes i drove so others can drink.

my main point is this,this is where your teams bond when you get together after a game,even if it is for one drink and like a previous poster said any problems on the pitch will be forgotten in the bar with a bit of light banter between the teams. also friendships are formed with oppositions players.who can forget mangle at gulval last season, a coopsie :drink:

i also know that sometimes you have to leave straight after the game as yesterday i had to take a child to treliske straight after the game but! this does not mean that all the team had to leave straight away :blink:

just my observations :c:

Luffy and others. If clubs persistantly do not go back for a drink or enjoy the hospitality, then a lot of teams lose their incomes.

Many clubs (although not Gulval) benefit from sponsorship from pubs or clubs. The idea being as I am sure you are all aware....bring em back for a drink and generate turnover at a quiet time for the pub.

If this ceases to happen on a regular basis, sponsorship dwindles, clubs struggle and economics takeover the club dies.

I prefer to feel that a drink with the guy you have bttled for the points with is good enough reason to stop for half an hour.

With Gulval it is a tradition, generally win, lose or draw enjoy the craic!

Mangle is indeed a legend. Coopsie however is just a foot.

Fair point, and it is good to see that you stayed when you went to your furthest game. We played Sennen in our first game and we did not stay, a couple of reason we only had a few cars for the team and players had to get home for one thing or another. I did not get home until fairly late becasue I had to do an errand before going home.

I do try to encourage our players to go for a drink with the home side, and if I can not I do give my apologise to the home side out of courtesy. I am not sure but it might just be the way of life now everyone seems to have something to do, many people seem to take life in the fast lane and they try to fit as much into the day as possible. I have to admit 10 years ago it was very rare that you did not go for drink after the match.

All the best.

i think you will find some of the halsetown lads wanted to get off quickly to get home changed and get back out to watch england play, also a 21st birthday party of one of the players,also this time of year some off them have to get back to work,

I think its fair to say that club's sponsorship from a pub or social club is based on the expectation of there being 20+ players etc in the bar after the game bringing finance to the sponsoring pub/club.

If if becomes a frequent occurrence that visiting clubs dont go back after then the home club may lose much needed income - something few clubs can afford to do.

Running a football team isnt cheap - for example Borough's pitch fees have increased from less than £600 last season to more than £1800 this season due to our change of venue for ECPL football - and like every club therefore we need every penny we can get.

I would hope that most clubs - win or lose - will support the home club after the match in the bar.
