I used to support the catering a fair bit, but I found that, as a non-boozing vegetarian, I was often restricted to chips and maybe a bar of chocolate. So I started to ensure that I was fed and watered before going. A half-time cup of hot chocolate or a cold drink is about my limit now. My guts seem to appreciate it more.

Its a football club, not a *beep* resturant. Who gives a *beep* about the burgers?


Exactly Ian - how many people really go because of the food?

The tea bars and so on are part of the match day experience. In the same way as the seats are. If the seats are crap and uncomfortable you cannot say it's of no importance (even though to a terrace rat like me it is) because it affects the match day experience of the people who are too lazy to stand. They have a reason not to come back.

The most important thing is the first team but other parts are important too.

not all of us are fully able bodied fans and cant stand up for 90 minutes, not having a dig just an add on to your post


Sorry, cheap shot. The point though stands. The first team is the most important but other things do matter.

no mate wasn't a cheap shot at all, i totally understand what you are saying and believe me if my legs were up to the challenge of standing i would

the atmosphere is always better behind the goal

and you are right the first team must come first as if the team are playing well and winning plenty the fans will come back and thus we will be able to invest in better facilities like catering etc

although i do think the youngsters that are running the catering should be given the chance to do an NVQ to give them something to fall back on if needed

If you had better food you would sell more, meaning more revenue for the club.

Chaps it's simple - you improve ANY & EVERY aspect that you can improve... from the small items to the large ones, because they all form part of the customer experience and product that you are offering...

...but more than anything, the core product is watching an enjoyable live football match in an enjoyable environment.. that's it...!

Hire Red Red Red as the clubs new press officer,


+1

Youth Team. Girls Team. Women's Team. One for less abled. Asylum Seeker Team. Team for homeless people.

Talk of the Championship is nice, but a team that engages with as many local people as possible and of which the most locals are aware (and even proud) is the stuff of my dreams, even if they are bumming around L2.
