Aye, i wasn't comparing us to 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

Apparently it was all amazing when we were in the Prem though... No queues, lovely pint, efficient staff... 🤨

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

Last time I looked FV weren't staffing the bar. It's the same number of bar staff as it ever was, irrespective of ownership. It's just much shitter now, that's all

I don't believe anyone has ever said that  

Not even at a Papa Johns match

Yes bit of re jigging job done

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

Said it before. The Massives are fucking brilliant at it. Brother has a ST. Times I’ve been with him. 44 mins bob down for a pint. Small kiosk serving nowt but ale (food/snacks/soft drinks served in different kiosks). 3 folk on it. About 20 pints sat there waiting for a top up. First folk start appearing, bang, the machine starts, one fills pints to near top, another one takes order, third one finishes pints off. Queues move quickly and everyone back in seats for second half. It really isn’t that difficult. For the price of a few extra minimum wages they are shifting a shed load of extra pints at £5 a go

I was being sarcastic. Getting a beer at half time has always been shit, and always will be. It's just one of those things.

Wasn't perfect, just better than it is now.

I think most on here have trust in Sharon and the club to sort it.

At the end of the day you want a positive experience, some might not come back, hospitality is a big part of the match day package to some, not me, but for newcomers it could make the difference to them if they come back or not.

We are just going for Silver 🥈 & Bronze 🥉 mate, @TrafPeter Kiosko is Gold nailed on 🥇

I should get extra points for old Peroni being a club legend, Kiosko was only here for about five minutes.

Spot on, they do a great job at the Etihad, sorry massives, and they make it look easy.

Good point, but it's the Pun that wins.

John Stones'

Not sure Kiosko was a pun, probably just Trafs phone auto corrected to that when he typed the name correctly, my phone always changed it to Peter Kiosk for me.

I’m fairly sure the bars used to be run by whoever was running the hotel catering. Either deVeres or Paul Heathcote. This meant a fully trained and qualified catering manager would be responsible for stocking, staffing, (including training), etc.

Obviously there will still be a BWFC employee who will have taken responsibility for these areas but if they’ve been employed to run the hotel, they may have decided matchday catering is secondary to the efficient running of the hotel catering. After all, it’s only open once or twice a fortnight. 

As an aside, and perhaps @victor meldrew could be my consultant here,

If a bar is open 7 days a week it’s usual for that bar to have a weekly beer-line cleaning regime. What if it only opens once or twice a fortnight? I don’t reckon they’d be cleaning beer-lines after every game which, if your next game is in two weeks, is required.

One of these 2 fellas announced yesterday is all about improving match day experiences and therefore increasing crowds.

Theyll be all over people’s concerns, they’ll be well aware the areas where the club is failing.

I suspect it might even take until the close season until something really drastic happens but my guess is we see gradual improvements as the season goes on.

Anyway - 4-2

Looking forward to today. Great feeling just like it was as a teenager (many years ago!) heading down to Burnden Park. Popping into Manchester for a few pre match beers. COYWM

Aye same really looking forward to this hopefully we get a good result and we get a few non season ticket holders catching on

if I didn’t have the family coming I’d have come Manc for a few maybe next time

All this nonsense about catering.

If it really is that bad then don’t queue. Surely you can wait until after the game for a pint?

For anything non-alcoholic and food/snacks etc, then just take them in yourself. Easy, just a little bit of planning involved.

Anyway the only thing that matters in football is the 3 points. 

There was no complaining under BSA when we were grinding out 1 nils against the big boys in the PL.
