The Malt Shovel in Dartford is the recommendation.

Part of the day out for me, get there early, explore a new town - I like my ales so I like to find a decent pub and try a few pints that are specific to the area. Well, depending, that's a usual away day, but if it's a match with a massive buzz about it I get to where the mass of Town fans are. But it's not often these days we have a match like that!

Don't think it has any bearing on how much I care about the teams performance. Reckon we're allowed to enjoy the day out, after all we're travelling and paying a fair amount to support Town, don't really understand how the OP can begrudge people having a few pints at the same time, unless he/she is on a wind-up that is (which is fairly likely!).

We should have a poll,

DO you drink more before the game than after ?

Yes if we have won,

NO if we have lost

All part of the day out for me. Experience some great pubs all over the country that you normally wouldn't visit. Let's be honest, the match tends to ruin the day out most of time. Another plus point, it numbs the pain.

Agree with other posters on here in that having a pint or two at an away match is part of the whole match day experience. Meeting up with fellow like minded individuals who you would have nothing in common with apart from a love of football and your team is part and parcel of why fans go to football as opposed to staying at home and watching it on tv. Also it is a good chance to have a bit of good natured banter with opposition fans, genuine football fans. Let's not forget that us fans have and many still do make great efforts and cover large distances to support town and sometimes can be doing a 7 to 8 hour round trip. That is a long day out just for 90 minutes of entertainment? I use that term lightly lol, so to me part of the justification of driving a long distance is to make it a complete day out not just the football, the two go hand in hand. If you were going say to the theatre would you not have a drink or maybe a meal out first? It would add to the evenings entertainment surely, and that is all a pre match pint does for me. Long may the pre match drink continue. UTM

For some it's part of the day out, and following Town sometimes drives you to the amber nectar.
I couldn't imagine darts fans happy with a cup of tea.
Agree for many part of the football fans lifestyle

Agreed, for the last ten years, or so, the actual game is the low point of the day, so why do we do it still ?
