At the end of the day, you don't go to a football match expecting a decent pint. Pipes only get used once or twice a week at most. Shit beer is just an inevitable part of the experience.

Agreed, it just needs to be drinkable. The slop we serve up must be one of the worst in the league.

Fortunately I don't buy it, mainly because it is shite!, I may get a cider every now and again.

Not inevitable it'll be shit if it's in a bottle though is it?

Suppose not. But bottles take up a lot more space, and people would still complain about it being too warm. It's an unsolvable conundrum.

Its Great that there is gonna be a good crowd on, unfortunately we will be up and down like yo-yo's when the kids want a piss every 10 minutes.

.... no change there then 😏

It’s like that in the upper west every match. No kids there though.😊

I disagree, but I might be wrong. North Lower only has/had 1 card payment queue per kiosk, which is mental considering the prevelance of contactless these days. I haven't bothered at half time this season anyway. My kids would rather stay in their seats in the open air for 15 minutes than congregate with thousands in a semi-confined space. If they weren't with me, I'd be queuing for a pint on 40 minutes.

Wouldn't matter if they were giving the ale away for free in the NSL at the last Sarurday home game, the bar staff hadn't got a bloody clue what they were doing. I know cos I suffered every minute of it

What would be your plan if you were tasked with serving a couple of thousand people in a 15 minute window, once or twice a week?

Kiosks aren't fit for purpose.
Not wide enough, nor deep enough for starters.

Grimsby's ground only holds 9000, and it's rarely over half-full.

Fucking massive fridges. And lots of them. 

Yep, and emptied systematically.
Have cases of beer in a cold room nearby and as one fridge empties, sell from the next and have someone refilling the empty one.

Where would they go though?

You never watched Phil & Kirsty? Just knock loads of walls down. 

I do think the outside space is very much under utilised though. Get it fenced off during the first half and get a few outside bars sorted. You’d think no bugger would use them during the winter, but these people weren’t stood drinking beer outside the away end at Peterborough the week before Christmas.
