What things would improve the 'match day experience'? on 15:24 - Apr 8 by SitfcB
I always think this. The ‘refreshments’ available are what they are and at the end of the day we’re going there to watch football not for a three course dinner.
Although I bet a lot of people drop in to Maccy D's on the way (including me). If the food was decent and quick to get served I'd rather grab a burger at PR and hang about in the fan zone for a bit longer.

I am a great believer in the whole matchday thing.
Especially from a business point of view where the club has a large captive audience.
We all know how badly ME failed to exploit this which, as we have all said loads of times I know, given his line of work is all the more shocking.
Besides, the last coffee I had there tasted like dirt.
I'd agree: I stopped buying anything at games the last few seasons. Even ten years ago we had better beer (Adnams), better drinks, and food that I was willing to feed my kids (stopped mainly due to the value being so poor). Don't get me started on the service though: terrible for years. I tried every season to get them to pre-pour a few pints at half time, just so we could actually get them in time to drink before the game started again. I think I saw them do it once in 20 years.
1, Open the turnstiles at 12 and use the concourse as a pub/be able to watch the 12.30pm kick off 2, Employ three times the catering staff so you don't have to leave on 40th minute to drink a pint 3, Replace every single north lower steward, they're scum 4, Demolish the Cobbold Stand and start again 5, Move the away fans permanently to the north stand end, swivel to the police who advise no. We're Ipswich not Leeds 6, Escort anyone out who doesn't want to sing or even join in on any songs in lower north. 25,000 other seats you can watch a game in silence or talk to your mate all game, go away. That stand needs to be noisy for 95 minutes 7, Probably legally can't but open up the concourses for Ipswich away games where fans can watch with a few drinks 8, Show half time highlights on the concourse. Why the hell did they stop doing that? 9, Keep the bars open until 4.30pm. If fans want to stay down on the concourse to waste money on crap beer let them
