MancWanderer Posted April 10, 2016 Share Posted April 10, 2016 Once again cracking day out ,if you ignore the totally inept performance on the pitch. Left home to catch 8.03 to Piccadilly. Disaster at the station 9,35 to Stoke ready to go. 12 of us lined up , Early Dart hands over the tickets, " sorry sir wrong train and its just left " Closer inspection 9 tickets were for the 9.35 Virgin train , Remaining 3 , had been valid for the cross country 9.28. Early Dart , Son of Dart and The Bat head to the ticket office. The rest get on the train. 10.11 arrive Stoke. Quick phone call remaining 3 60 mins behind. Egg head locates nearest Spoons , 10 min yomp . Mr Smith , Back up North and Pinocchio's Dad retire to the coffee bar. Embankment , Shark ,Sputnik Stan and Egg Head ( plus 2 ) line up a few scoops in Spoons . Rambler Ale excellent brew, Then back to Station Hotel , 11.30 to Derby , Receive call from advanced Youth party , pubs near the station home fans only. 12.30 Arrive Derby , locate Brunswick Brewery pub. Superb find. Good beer , chip barms on form. Taxi for Mr Smith at 2.15. Rest walk to the ground , Wanderers Relegation party in full swing. Three nil down , spot Tomski looking forlorn. Made my way up the stand " thought you weren't bothering today ? " Puzzled look ??? " Who are you ? " " Embankment " Left him with a big grin on his face, good to meet you White Shirt as well. Back to my seat to watch us fall through the trap door. None eventfull trudge back to The Brunswick. Couple of pints at Stoke , then on to the Sweet Green , Hogwarts ( for the boxing ) . Then a midnight curry at the Libazz. With Sputnik , Back up North and Son of Dart. Hopefully next season we will get a few away wins, after the dross of this season we all deserve it, Roll on Fulham, Not looking forward to Middlesbrough's invasion next Saturday, Best away game entertainment all season are your reports Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
