Never been in Monaghans, or even heard of it, but you've reminded me of nearly 30 years ago, when a (London) Spurs mate always used to take us to this place for a pre-match drink (v.close to WHL):

Thing is, I'm pretty sure he had no Irish in him - had a Welsh surname if that means anything. Not seen him in at least two decades, maybe I should pop in the next time I'm at a game to see if he's still there/alive lol?

I think you'll be grand in the pub.
Now you mention it, you could be right.

But as against that, the Brickies has a pretty loyal clientele, many of the sort who'd rather save their £10 into the stadium and spend it on more beer with their pals in the boozer!

I remember after the UEFA Cup Final v Anderlecht, me and a mate drank our way from the ground, up the High Road and all the way to Manor House, since by the time we had had enough, the Tube was long since closed and we had to get a night bus back to civilisation. I think.

I've no idea how many pubs we visited, or how much we had, but the licensing laws were forgotten about that night, and every one of the numerous drinking holes along the way was rammed like you wouldn't believe.

I doubt they'd seen anything like it since V.E. Day!

Used to go in occasionally when at the old WHL, but not since. Loads of Spurs memorabilia and others from other parts of the world, especially Irish League - it used to be run by Kenny from Omagh, a big Omagh Town fan. Possibly still is.

Tbh, were it not a Spurs pub (also Kenny), I would never have bothered because in truth, it's decidedly "Old Tottenham" i.e. a sh*thole, with crap beer. Friendly enough, mind, but rough around the edges. Has a "beer garden", though quite honestly it's more like a "beer builder's yard".

Would it be closed off to non-members/general public for that match? 
Some woman asked on their FB page whether they were charging to get in, and they replied: "no, free entry".

But I reckon you'd need to get there the moment it opens, since it is guaranteed to be absolutely rammed come kick-off.


P.S. Facebook has this amusing pic (though not taken in the Brickies):

Cheers for the info Thumbs Up

I seen some of the recent photos on google maps and there's actually an N.I. pennant on the mirror behind the bar so I'm assuming that lad still owns it. I'll land in a couple of hours beforehand. 

I'd rather watch the match in a Tottenham dive with no liverpool fans in sight instead of a neutral overpriced spot in the city centre tbh.

Is the Bill Nicholson still open? Now that is a dodgy gaff! Strippers on match days cocaine everywhere.

Tottenham is an interesting place to pass the day, but certainly not pretty, there are  loads of good cheap places to eat, particularly if you like West Indian food. The White Hart Lane Jerk Centre appears to be still there. It is cheap as chips too and run by an old darling(or was) .The people are friendly and engaging, by London standards at least, but keep your wits about you, especially when drunk!

As I think of it, if you are in the area and drinking, there is an Irish pub in Wood Green called Monaghan's. It is a complete sh*thole in the best kind of way. My two visits there were about three years apart and I am sure nobody had moved in the meantime. The sort of place where anything at all is likely to happen.

Sure they're the best spots LOL 

Drank in plenty of rough pubs in Ireland and never had a bit of hassle in any of them. Drink is always way cheaper too. Clap

LOL

Was at a Spurs match years ago and one of the locals didn't take kindly to my hooped green and white hoodie I was wearing. He pulled up on his bike beside me as I was walking towards the stadium and started ranting "Oi, you're facking Glasgow Celtic.....facking Celtic!!" and then cycled off cursing. 

It wasn't even a Celtic top and I had a Spurs scarf on me as well LOL 

Glasgow Penneys more like.

This isn’t rough, more other worldly. I went into a pub on Friday that gave a similar vibe. Man at bar with fully tattooed face, barmaid who was either 15 or 55. Men in corner determined to give their wages to William Hill.I only wanted to use the toilet so had a soft drink, but some **** had stuck some tunes on the jukebox. It was a struggle to get out with my sobriety intact.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

That pub is still there. Wil definitely land in for one. Not too far from The Bricklayers either.
