    Default The Globe, RIP

    Just driven up London Road and the Globe has been flattened!

    Some memories made in there. Must be at least a dozen people from those days I still talk to.

    That was part of the attraction, if I'm honest.

    The last time I was in Nottingham, I saw it boarded up and in a terrible state.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    Yeah had a good few nights out in that place. Was usually a stop-off on the walk back from the match that turned into a session.

    It became a curry house I think before finally closing for good a while back

    I saw a few guys clearing out a lot of spectacularly filthy kitchen equipment into the back of a van a few weeks ago. I'd have left it in there

    That's the new Main Stand facilities ready in storage then.

    Watch out for it appearing on ebay though should Lamouchi not get us up this season.

    Yeah, there was a particularly lethal refrigeration unit that looked like an accident waiting to happen

    It was pretty busted up but I could just make out either the word FEWOZ or BAWAZ on the side

    An old meeting place for the Ilston lads in the late 80s. Met them there a couple of times but decided against it after a while as we got too drunk to see anything.

    Was one of my regular pre match pubs early 2000’s. I’m guessing it didn’t do much business non match days.

    Yes Barry, it was the Greyhound, and it was my old man's local for decades when it was a Shippos house.

    We lived nearby on Bathley Street, and I have fond memories as a kid of my mother sending me there to tell him that Sunday dinner was almost ready.

    I’ll never forget the post-beating-Derby session, when the landlord had shut down the front of the pub to make it look closed and avoid any trouble, when we had to go in through a ‘secret entrance’ round the back...

    Only a matter of time when it stopped being a pub.

    Pubs have closed as society has moved on, My brother made me laugh as when I moved up here he was concerned I didn't visit a local , Times have changed and many blokes don't go to the pub after work like they used to in my dad's generation.
    I am mid forties and spend evenings with my family , The odd occasion I go to a pub it will be with the wife on a night out or for something to eat as a treat.
    The old local on the estate isn't a place I would visit nowdays it's a time gone bye ,
    There will always be a place for a nice country pub that serves food and bars in the city centre or near sporting venues but that's it.

    People are much more likely to drink at home now rather than go to the pub of an evening

    My ambition as a youngster was to have a local and my own seat in that local... never happened but I've known folk who did, dying breed.

    One of my mates dads was one, he had his own stool, drank bottles of lager and drank there that regularly that the landlord tossed a coin with him every round to see if he paid or not.

    I used to work at the Elm tree in Forest Fields. You could set you clock by some of the locals. And the most important thing to learn was that thay had a name, a prefered drink and their own glass.

    When did you work in there? I lived round the corner on Cedar Road in my second year of uni and went in there a fair bit.
