Hope so blueblood66... but I think the food would be cold, coming from a US catering company...

Just waiting for people to moan about the prices which I bet have gone up.

Most games are at 3pm, between lunch and dinner. No obligation to eat inside the stadium and most people shouldn't be hungry at that time if they plan properly.

But the blubs they gonna come ..................

annoys me seeing loads of people clambering back to their seats with mitts full of pies, drinks, junk several minutes into the second half. can't people refrain for the length of a football match? Obese Britain catching up with the USA fast!

W'spoons make bigger profits than most pub companies bh selling cheap and filling the place, so yes I will moan about the prices and suggest they take a leaf out of the professionals book.
More importantly they need enough staff to cope with half time rush.

Just enough staff to serve everybody would be a big step forward!

Quicker service, beers lined up ready poured for half time, nicer coffee & a decent TV picture - too much to ask?

The service is poor in the West Stand. Always have to wait for beer to be poured.

Derby have a machine that can pour 8 pints at one go - if we could instal some of these it would definitely be worth a news item on TWTD.

2 people serving in the 81 bar, SBR Upper at the Norwich playoff game! Must be pushing 150- 200 people in there at half-time for big games. Do management ever visit these places to see what they're asking people to put up with?
