    Default The piss poor catering service

    I finally had a burst up today about the ridiculous queues and poor catering.
    Several people told me to email Jackie Sharpe (not sure if that's the correct spelling) with any problems, complaints.

    So fire away LTLF.

    Pre poured drinks would be a start. Like they do at any decent football ground. They said they can't do it because the beer isn't on draft, but they know their targets. Whether it's bottled or canned they know on average what they will sell. So pre pour it for gods sake. Reduce the queuing and frustration.

    First one to say real ale from this point on has an incredibly small penis.

    Is it possible they don't want to serve more beer? I don't know, just a thought. But security might be happy that it isn't really possible to drink inside the ground.

    Come on mate, it's 2017 and we pay the going rate. It's time the club moved out of the last century.
    If they want to be shit then they should charge accordingly. A substandard service should mean reduced prices.

    Do one or the other.

    I can honestly say I have very rarely had what I would call a "decent" experience getting any food or drink in a football ground but I must admit I generally don't do it because of said problems!

    I mean, are there any grounds that people go to and have a reasonably efficient and dare I say it "enjoyable" experience?

    A few years, i used to work at Ipswich Town on matchdays (just after they had the 2 new stands done) and it was pretty hectic, especially for the Norwich game, we always pre-poured the Beer, had at least 8 taps for our one kiosk, started pouring well before half time and kept pouiring them for ages

    Club should get some of these in: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wiu_IX14wLI

    A lovely half-Liter of Krombacher and a Bratwurst, for the sum total of €8, served at half time, without any rush or panic, and you can drink the beer in your seat.

    This was the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Stuttgart but most German stadia are the same.

    Cams idea is only what they do at concerts at the ice arena. A few of them and you can pour 12 at a time. Get rid of the shit quickly so they can spend a bit more time preparing the tastier real ale for the discerning fans. Just saying.
