The Duke of Edinburgh in Brixton has two big screens and one projector. Not only do they show all sky sports and terrestrial football games, they also show the NFL games on Sundays, and the Thanksgiving day games.

The Anthologist is an awful pub to watch sport in? Its always rammed and takes 30minutes to get to the bar at busy times.
