David will no doubt correct me - but in my experience really good town/city centre pubs, with great beer AND that also have Sky Sports are rare birds indeed. The Castle Bar in Cockermouth springs to mind. Apart from that, I'm really struggling.

Most serious real ale pubs in cities (e.g.Fat Cat in Norwich, Bree Louise in London, Kelham Island Tavern in Sheffield, Evening Star in Brighton) are keener on satisfying the beards than keeping the lager drinkers happy with a bit of footie - because of course, real ale or cider drinkers wouldn't possibly be interested in footie, would they ? ;-

So head for "Ye Olde Trip" for the beer, then somewhere a little less scenic for the footie.

Mike.. yer right, but if anywhere could find me this "rare bird" in Nottingham, then I'm sure TA could. I would certainly be able to point any visitors to Manchester in the right direction for real ale AND footie.

As fer Dave..... Thanks for reminding me why I've always had a soft spot for The Owls over the pigs.
