And, just sometimes. you'll see as many as a hundred people there....
Well if you have enough booze it COULD make the crowd seem to be 100 strong!
My wife went there to watch a match, and she was appalled at the amount of booing by England's opposing teams fans. Whilst most of the crowd politely clapped or cheered, a small minority decided that booing jeering and swearing was the way to go. She was actually quite upset.

Unless, of course, you are playing for this broken perfume vase...

Strange English custom, if Australia win this, it still stays sealed away at Lord's.

With all the fuss made about those ashes I somehow thought it would be a bigger container. Hardly worth the effort of getting on a plane to win or loose them.

I once infiltrated the Balmy Army.... quite easy actually, I got to the pub first ( a match day tradition/challenge with one of my work/drinking mates) for the lunch break. We then got surrounded by said army, and a jolly good time was had by all.
Big problem with the luncheon drinkies was that by the time you'd finished your first beer, the queue at the bar was intolerably long (made worse by the ponces with funny orders for wines and mixes), so was born the tradition of bulk ordering first up..... we could get in two, or even three, beers to the slow coach's one, and get back to the game, without missing a ball.
