Haven't used these for years. Is it still full of drunken nutters?

We've used them several times this season. We get on at Colmore Circus. No nutters, drunken or otherwise.

I haven't travelled with Premier for donkeys years but can still recite that number off by heart, thanks to the numerous calls made from our phone table in the hall when booking us on all those trips. No mobiles then kids, you don't know you're born etc etc

I use Premier Travel regularly.  A bit harsh to call them drunken nutters.  I personally think they're a great group and have never seen any trouble on their trips.  They are recognised by the club and have a strict no alcohol policy on their coaches - One guy who helps steward the coaches is a regular seller of H&V.

They pick up from Cannock, Brownhills, Hendsford & Town with several other stops in between.

Steve who runs Premier Travel has been doing coaches for 30 odd years & has it down to a fine art.

Drunken nutters - It was meant affectionately as I've not used them for donkey's years, but there was a few characters to be sure and shock horror, they liked a drink or two.

Always a good trip back in the day. Often with a pre match 'refreshment stop'. I always associate them with the bonfire night trip to Old Trafford in 1988 and coming back in the thickest fog I have ever seen whilst watching a video on the coach of The Lost Boys. However, several of the other videos I endured on away trips with them are right up there with the worst films I have ever seen. I'm not sure 'Breakdance 2 -Electric Boogaloo'  was made with a target audience of football fans in mind.

I must have seen the Shawshank Redemption 10 times over a two season period back in the mid 90's on Steve's coaches

I remember sitting through several sequals to films I hadn't seen the first installments of. To this day the only Chuck Norris Missing In Action film I have ever seen was Missing In Action III which I saw on a Premier coach in the late eighties. Were they not originally called 'Premier Entertainments'* in the early days?

*I am referring to the coach trips not the Chuck Norris films.

Our mate (me and this Damo character that is) had a mate called Brownie. He was with us on a Premier Coach for some match or other and they showed "The Hunt For Red October" on the way home, unfortunately we got back to the Bar St Martin before it finished. Fascinated as he was, Brownie rented the video the next day to watch the climax. It lasted about 5 minutes before the credits rolled.

Travelled with Steve and Premier for many years before I moved up North. My highlight was the trip to Steau Bucharest in the 90s...a 6 day coach trip where we was actually on the Derby County team coach. Crazy days!!
