The Football Cafe will capture the “authentic culture” of the game through its food, cocktails and decor.
That got me worrying. Just how authentic will this place be?
I’ve got visions now of waiters rolling on the floor in agony whenever they bump into a table.
And I dread to think what the toilets will be like.
The Football Cafe will be built in the heart of the East End so I’m assuming it will be a bit light of Man Utd memoribilia.
But hopefully it could spur on a whole series of themed restaurant and bar openings for football people. How about:
The Bendtner Brasserie – the chef thinks he deserves three Michelin stars but the rest of the world disagrees.
The Allardyce Arms – no starters on the menu at this one where the owner likes to go with nothing up front.
The Tevez Trattoria – great value for money but confusing for diners because it changes venue every year.
Chez Villas Boas – fantastic cooking but a bit lacking in atmosphere.
Cantona Canteen – great sardines but the chef has a bit of a temper.
Suarez Social Club – not many foreign dishes on the menu and the odd bite taken out of your steak.
Roy’s Cafe – solid English fare. Closed during final weeks of major tournaments.
I could go on all day like this but it’s time to turn to the real point of this column and try and pick a winner this weekend.
Spurs and Swansea face tricky away fixtures at Everton and Cardiff respectively but I fancy both to land the spoils at a decent price of 11/2 for the win double.
Both sides seem to play better away from home and the SaS double looks worth a punt.
