Johnny’s in the basement
Mixing up the medicine
I’m on the pavement
Thinking about the government
The man in the trench coat
Badge out, laid off
Says he’s got a bad cough
Wants to get it paid off
Look out kid
It’s somethin’ you did
God knows when
But you’re doin’ it again
You better duck down the alley way
Lookin’ for a new friend
The man in the coon-skin cap
By the big pen
Wants eleven dollar bills
You only got ten

Has everyone that's coming got a mobile number to contact other Reggers if for instance The Hop runs out of beer, they don't let people with beards in or grown men pretending to be dogs?
I have on my t'mobile Docks,Bearings & Late Doors numbers. Just in case anything changes during the events of the afternoon can everyone get in touch with someone? I'd hate somebody to think we've fucked off when we're just round the corner getting tattoos done or sommat
As I work in the locality, I thought I'd have a quick recce at the proposed meeting point - which I hope is still The Hop.
Looks very pleasant. First time I've been down to the new Granary Wharfe area and I'm impressed. Lots of space outside which will make a change from being roped in outside the Spoons.
I've always jogged the other way, but i think I'll jog this way next time. Anyone any idea how far you can get on the two path heading that way? _________________ Oh go away.. You dirty man!
I haven't done anything FC apart from start a thread & name a venue. Not too sure whether I'm making the pre game drink yet all depends on what Mrs Foo & the Foosters have planned for the day. Which is a pity as I'd like to meet Seal & yourself if your not there for the aftermath. As long as everyone has a point of contact we should all be fine.
Early start - 7:15 - to get the train to that there London in good time for the connection to Kings X.
Only for a signal failure at Upminster to, ahem, derail my plans somewhat. I had to get the District line all the way in from Upminster (look at the map, it's a LOT of stops) to Monument, checking my watch at each stop and re-calculating my time left. I calculated that I would have a 5 minute window if I got all the connections in short order.
Getting to Bank and seeing the arse end of a Northern Line train disappearing up the tunnel led to a great deal of pacing, swearing and sweating on the Tube platform, and a Tom Cruise style sprint from the Tube at kings X, dodging pedestrians and no doubt some blokes in a helicopter, to the train, where normal breathing resumed somewhere near Luton.
Anywhoo, made it to Leeds in time to get lost between the station and the Hop and phone Butts for directions . Had a a quick look round Granary Wharf: very nice, you can snap up a canal side luxury flat for only £95K if you act now. Met up with Stripe, and Bearing, who collared me for a fiver for the shaved legs, then the rest of the gang appeared over the course of 3 pints of Osset Brewery Pale Gold. I had the pie meal deal for a fiver too. Nom, nom, nom. I was so shocked that I got all that food for only a fiver I completely forgot the free pint that you get with it, and needed a bit of a sit down.

Got a lift to the ground from FC - cheers for that - and the rest is history!
Nice to meet everyone, if only briefly in Mick's case. Must do it again next season.
