No probs SteveP.<P>Like I'm not an adictive person (except maybe where Billericay Town are concerned) and everything has its time and place.<P>Like everything, drink, blow, footie, ****, even walking across the road, they all have their down side and can be dangerous. Just gotta keep things in perspective.

Ahh what a day talk about a double headed hangover - one to commiserate the not so mighty Reds dropping Grim clangers and one for the mighty Iron maintaining our superior league position - lets be honest who wants to be voodoo top at this stage.<P>Then I had to teach a class of first years how to give injections nearly threw up.<P>Just waiting for the phone call to be struck off! images/icons/shocked.gif" border="0

Does the clubhouse serve Stella? If not you can enjoy a dozen pints of the stuff at our gaffe. And play the fruit machine face to face! You still got that machine done up like an armaguard van? Where you have to slip your hands through the bars to play it? Must be a load of villains on the marshes.LOL images/icons/shocked.gif" border="0

worryingly good gazza.. made it here at 7.10 am and still havn't been affected by the waves of nausea and depression that usually follow a decent binge..in fact i quite fancy a pint...always drink premium lager it hurts less..iron knob, they dont do stella at park lane but they do have 1664 which is about as close as your gonna get..following conf grading rules the fruity is protected by a level 6 force field images/icons/wink.gif" border="0

Now there's a real point, why do we grade gronds for the conference on silly things like safety, seats and capacity?<P>I think it should be on:<P>Quality and diversity of Booze.<BR>Is there Kronnie/Stella/Carlsberg?<BR>Is there a good supply of bottles if the draught turns out a bit nasty?<BR>Is either Zambuca/Tequila available for those special occasions?<P>Comfort<BR>Is there a decent fruit machine with a Jackpot above £50?<BR>Does the ground offer decent leaning levels?<BR>Can I park the car and get in to the bar in less than 5 minutes?<BR>Are there enough TVs with teletext results post match?<BR>Is there a place to run for cover in the rain?<P>Food<BR>Are the burgers of a high quality?<BR>Is there a plentiful supply of bar snacks?<BR>Is there more then one place in the ground where you can get food?<P>I think we need to be setting these standards for a better league!! If you want to add to it I would love to hear.

Yeah with three dozen or so licensed premises in Braintree, the Orange Tree within a stones throw of our ground we'd be nationwide. Billericay with no more than 6 or 7 pubs in the whole joint will back in the Essex Intermediate. Guess Canvey would be back in the Southend and district going on the pub benchmark.

At one time, although I doubt it is true now, Gravesend had more pubs per head of population than any other town in Britain.<P>So we must be heading for the Premiership

Then theres the pub at South Green and the one further up Southend Road. The Dovecot (prob got another name now). Well that was the roll call when I lived in that "Quaker turned commuter town". Though i suspect their may be a couple of newbies in Billericay nowadays.

Yeah, the Dovecot has changed its name more times then I've had a ****. I think it is now reverted back to the Dovecot.<P>Quaker turned cummutor town? Could this be a compliment from someone from a market town?

I remember going to Heybridge and going through Chelmsford. There was this rough looking pub, I think it was The Army & Navy. Outside there was a poster saying, <P>'Playing Tonight, Sigue Sigue Sputnik' <P>Can you imagine a better way to spend an evening?? I think I can.
