Those visiting from the west may be used to a different style of sports bar: pedigree lagers served by tanned blondes while Sky Sports beams from all available wall space. So here’s something completely different. Set inside OFF Piotrkowska, Football Pub is barely the size of a cupboard, with decorations largely left to the patrons; find ceilings and walls plastered with pennants and scarves donated from Donetsk to Oxford. Hiding underneath all that is a small TV, usually tuned to a local sports channel, as well as a small fridge housing Polish lagers such as Raciborskie and Trybunał and a menu that includes pork knuckle, kaszanka and barbecued sausage. Attracting all from decommissioned conscripts to rowdy Stoke lads, this boys own venue is a pokey delight, and lorded over by a former pro with a tracksuit look and vintage moustache – practice pigeon Polish on him to learn more about his playing adventures.
