THE ANFIELD NOISE

Reds in Canada eh?

I’m (hopefully) moving to Vancouver BC in the next week or so and was wondering about various supporters’ groups there.

That query led me here to the World Wide Reds section of the clearly superlative forum for supporters of Liverpool Football Club.

Seeing as there isn’t a thread for Canucks I thought I’d start one. Feel free to post anything related to the second largest country by land mass here.

I’d also appreciate it if anyone knows any LFC oriented pubs etc for watching matches in Vancouver.

I think @CanuckoLFC @Semmy @Arminius are leading the TAN chapter there.

Cheers for that. I know I’ve seen random mentions of Canada around, was a bit surprised to see there wasn’t a thread for Canucks.

@Semmy is your go-to for British California

It’s difficult getting a pub to open at 10am in EST, it must be a nightmare on that end at 7am.

Imagine the 12:30pm (GMT/UTC) kick off! (I dislike getting up at 7:30am Eastern.)
Probably need pubs open throughout the dead of night for football fans in the West Coast.

Good morning!

a good place to start is the Liverpool OSC - Vancouver. it’s a club-recognized supporters club that is based out of the Butcher & Bullock pub in downtown Vancouver. Have been to a few matches here and there, is an hour’s drive for me. Give the FB group a follow and you’ll find lots of info and a little bit of bantz as well. OLSC Vancouver

There’s an annual membership to the OSC Vancouver (I think it’s $25, have to check last year’s receipt) which gets you priority past the door into the pub on CL matches as it will be packed. CL Final last year, they filled 5 pubs downtown (1000 folks) as the company that owns the B&B pub has multiple others in the area and are very accomodating.

Good bunch though, and the pub opens for every match even if it’s those pesky 04:30 kickoffs.

Perfect, thanks for this info!

I’ll definitely be giving them a look. May try for an “evening” match first.

It was technically easier here to get pubs that were open in Asia but those champions league matches being about 3-4am were a nightmare here, looking forward to those being the easier ones to watch (if not working/studying/etc).

happy to be of help. the CL Matches are all lunchtime here which makes it impossible for me to attend in person so I haven’t been since the new job. before, I had Sun-Tues off so I could go for the Tues games and they were a lot of fun.

Anyone here have Fubo yet? I guess I am going to subscribe, just wondering how it compares in quality etc. to DAZN.

I have an annual subscription to DAZN until February. Might go month to month for the CL knockout rounds, which would also pick up Six Nations, but it is going to be hard to justify for just the CL group rounds next year. I am not sure what the hell DAZN were thinking announcing a major price increase in parallel with losing what must be their biggest draw with the possible exception of their NFL package.

I’m going month to month, and then using vpn to get the CL games.

I really want to get a iptv private invite that works with tivimate, hint hint. Sick and tired of being molested by providers. Back in the day it was 1 service for pl, CL and cups, now it’s 2 to 3 subscriptions or packages.

Even 2 years(?) ago DAZN had PL, CL, and one of the Cups. Way too fragmented now. Rugby is even worse, almost one package per service.

There is a soothing balm which you should rub on the affected area morning and night.
