The Thompson Brothers on Notts County, Game of Thrones and Craft Beer

Nottingham's most opinionated grocers on...

Notts County Relegated
We’re devastated. It’s absolutely appalling, what a pathetic bunch of players they were this season. The manager has been on radio saying, “We just weren’t good enough.” He’s right, but they had all season to get it sorted and they didn’t. They should have the same ethos as tennis players and know that every shot counts.  

Craft Beer Week
We like London Pride and Adnams Bitter. Are they craft beers? What you want is a good smooth and delicious dark beer, not something citrusy and hoppy that completely blows your head off. Locally we like Castle Rock and Magpie. But we like pints of beer that you can drink gallons of, rather than drinking in halves.

World Cup Cricket
Apparently England are going to win? I heard Stuart Broad on the radio saying they’re picking players based on those who are best at one-day cricket. That makes a lot of sense, since it’s a one-day tournament.

Game of Thrones
We’ve never watched it. No idea what all the fuss is about. Ultimately there’s no way it’s up there with the three best TV shows ever: M*A*S*H, Dads Army and Whatever Happened To The Likely Lads. Everything about them is superb. We’ve also bought our tickets to see Kind Hearts and Coronets at Broadway Cinema on Sunday 2 June. It’s probably the best film ever made.  

We have a favour to ask…

LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
