Thing is the Premiership games start as early as 4am here and as late as 9:15 on the weekends. Some bars/pubs don't open that early except for those British pubs that serve breakfast and have a loyal soccer fan base that will wake up early to watch them. I don't think the Yard House here does, but there's an Irish pub nearer to the Long Beach Aquarium called the Auld Dubliner that does.
Another thing is that the marquee games are on Setanta Sports and not on FSC (the bulk of Man United games air on Setanta). I don't have DirecTV or Dish Network at home and it costs a bundle methinks just to have Setanta on my cable package. Not all of them have GolTV either. Thankfully, there are a few local pubs that have all that and the atmosphere.

The girls love those fancy martinis (and I love to buy them a few ). Personally, I drink a few Chimays, then maybe something like a Hoe, then finish off with a Black and Tan or a variety of such. Basically though, I think there's something for everyone there. One of the best conversation starters is asking someone what they are drinking. Or better yet, try to guess what they are drinking.
Beer list for those who may be interested.
The Yard House I go to is on Shoreline Village and there's a nice outside area where you can get a good ocean view.
No surprise to see folks at the Yard House just drink your typical domestic macros, but I find it funnier to find those kind of people drinking the same old Bud Light at a beer geek's bar such as Naja's Place.
