Right, having dissected the match for about 10 minutes in the pub after the game, conversation turned to those great pub stops back in the day.

We talked vividly about the trip back from the 2-0 FA Cup win at Bournemouth in 1982, where we pulled up at what turned out to be The Caxton Arms in Whitechapel on the A13. Two coach loads taking over the pub and even helping out serving behind the bar. The DJ, who was setting up for the evening, was flung straight into action, playing the choons of the day. What a great night.

It got me thinking about whether there were regular haunts that were often "refueling stops" on the way back from those bygone away trips or any great memories people have of them?

They were often the highlight of the afternoon. Especially after a half-decent result and the teddy boy lookalike Supreme Coaches drivers were good enough to let us have a good 90 minutes or so on the way home, often.

Great days!
