Forgive me, but I've never seen/heard you say that. Maybe you should contact Sharon.

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

And? 

Spurs do Beavertown on draught and are a cashless stadium and do gourmet burgers. 

It holds 60,000

Spurs' stadium cost £1.2billion.

And? 

I don't eat or drink at the match 

But its not beyond the realms there could be a fanzone doing nice food and beer 

Seems there's a demand for it

Casino will NOT be happy if Shazza sacks the Carling off 😉

Just saying. Comparing the facilities at the Reebok to those of a brand new £1.2Billion Premier League stadium is a bit daft. That's all.

I agree it should be better, but these things don't happen overnight.

Yes bit of re jigging job done

plenty of grounds have managed their concourse space much better than we do 

Maybe it is about space, but saying that the service when we was in the Prem was a lot better than it is now, and the beer was decent.

Beer in plastic bottles would be a step in the right direction, and more preparation from the staff would be ideal, but they probably aren't trained and are casual staff, so not entirely their fault, Shazza needs to sort it, and I'm sure she will, because above all she listens.

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

Think the best set up I have seen was at Doncaster races,  a line of kids non stop pouring pints at the back and a line of kids in front if them taking the order/money,  pass the customer the pints and job done,   be even quicker now with contactless.    I,ll bell shaz in the morning.

If Ken was still here it would be sorted, unfortunately Parky would still be in charge, we'd be in the Conference North and the football would be shite!

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?

When we were in the PL and averaging over 26k a game it was nothing like as bad as it is now. So your point doesn't really hold much water when crowds are now way lower

I've been festival's and concerts with a lot more people on and I've been served a lot quicker, it's about organisation, and for whatever reason the club haven't got to grips with it yet, they will, I'm sure of 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.

I believe other clubs do it and as I mentioned earlier it was card payments and bottles only at the Rod Stewart event at the Unibolt a couple of years back. Drinks were cold and queues were short. There is no conundrum that doesn't have a solution

Give them a chance. This is our first season back in the ground since FV took over!

I'm sure we'll get back to being served shit beer more quickly in the near future.

Aye, i wasn't suggesting we need to be more like Grimsby either, or more to the point, I'm not envious, it just looks nice 

Agree these things don't happen overnight, they don't appear to happen over 25 years either, it's always been shite food and beer
