We (the Elephant and Castle) are thinking about opening for the Superbowl on Sunday 3rd February going through to early morning on the 4th.
We have a few NFL fans coming in on most Sundays to watch the games but was wondering if there were any American expats or Yankophilles out there who would like to watch the game on a big screen with company?

The Amex has hardly affected Falmer at all. A little more traffic for a couple of hours every fortnight in winter. Big deal. The construction of the Brighton by-pass years ago was far more intrusive.

Sorry to divert from the original subject; but Falmer was wrecked when some idiot authorised the construction of a cutting that ripped the village in half when the road was widened, instead of building a tunnel like at Southwick Hill.

Stadium is still better than the alternatives. Originally the idea was to build a new hospital there to replace the three others in the city, 24 hour a day 7 days a week movements by the thousand. When that idea was shelved planning for a huge industrial estate was granted again with 365 days a year noise and traffic.
Would you post as hospital/industry hater instead of saving your vitriol purely for football? Perhaps you're busy building a tree house near Bexhill/Hastings?
London Exile, it's two bloody great university campuses.
Sorry Huw won't make the Superbowl.

I'm sure that Falmer residents will argue against it not affecting them.
Schools, university campuses and hospitals are worthwhile and help people learn or be treated and are available for all. Football is a pointless game that gives nothing to the local society except numerous problems and an influx of thugs and to amuse a few who cannot usually string together a sentence.

A hospital serves the whole community, not just those who want to go and watch 22 millionaires ruining a lawn (or whatever the non-Premier League equivalent is).
And all the people that visit a hospital wouldn't be trying to get there at the same time, like football crowds.

I'm sure Falmer residents would argue about anything and everything. Bunch of whingers.
Also the AMEX is a COMMUNITY stadium A.C.T. and there is a lot more that goes on there than just football.

Exactly how much of the stadium is in Hove Seagull?
Brighton and Lewes Albion? Dont think so.

The amex brought nothing .....
No employment opportunities?
No facilities that now provide education for people who are unable to attend full time courses?
Not a building and facility to inspire young people to participate and enjoy sport and decrease the ever increasing issue of childhood obesity?
Not a facility to bring funding for the development of sport in Sussex?
Not a facility to bring funding to develop areas of deprivation through sport and education ?
Not a facility to boost the income of shops and business' in Brighton as well as Lewes by travelling fans?
So I believe it provides more than just a building for 22 millionaires!

As a season ticket holder, I am still yet to see any trouble in the area of Falmer before or after a home game, and I'm sure the landlord of the Swan public house doesn't complain to much either on match days.

You need to check your memory then because the Goldstone ground was in West Hove, almost Aldrington. Hove station is further East than the ground was. So yes, whatever. Hove and Aldrington Albion? Don't think so.

When you say Boundary Road, are you talking about Boundary Road, Hove or Boundary Road Brighton? Not sure what either have to do with the location of the Goldstone ground. Or was the word 'Road' a mistake on your part? Anyway, the Goldstone ground was wholly and fully within the boundary of Hove only. Hope that helps.
