No half time dash to the soccer bar anymore, quite right as well, how many other clubs allow fans out at HT.

Can't think of amy other grounds where fans actually leave the ground at HT to go to the pub :?

Can imagine this won't go down well with a few folk but revenue into the club is exactly what we need!

Im not bothered as long as they get service right inside the ground to cope with extra.
no huge queues.
The cross bar is bad enough already at half time with loads going to the soccer bar.

Rightly so, you can't leave any other stadium and come back.
Outside bar to be installed for home fans as well as the cross bar for a half time beer
Players tunnel was removed last night. Already looking better....
Massive amount of work to be done over the summer.
If you want to help and be involved. Next visit is Sunday 9am meet....

Absolutely the right decision..........if it’s possible to get a beer at half time in the ground, usually you’ve no chance of getting served in time

The owners are doing there absolute best aren’t they Steve? They knew that this wouldn’t be the most popular thing to do and if they were going to do it they needed to make the beer serving facilities better - which they’re doing.
Every supporter has to do their bit now, whether that’s joining the Trust, joining the 1901 club, volunteering during the week or Sunday’s, donating time or cash, turning up on Saturdays/Tuesdays or simply accepting that they are being asked to spend their cash in the ground.
We didn't underestimate them, we just didn't think they were that good.

Yes takes to long to get served my mate doubles up ,still a rush.
Why not introduce a pre order drinks .
Order and pay online. or some otherway.
Drinks can be ready for the exchange of the sales voucher.
Will increase sales if done efficiently
A plastic bottle bar in the ground is another idea.

Completely agree. It should have been done years ago. Look how much has changed since November. The only way is to keep going and spend time or money, whatever way suits, at our club. And make the club more welcoming for less frequent visitors who might come more . For instance, volunteers are keeping the Trust shop open during all the football tourneys at Holker Street in the next few weeks Just so there's somewhere for parents and kids to get a brew and a few snacks while the X Bar is being refurbished.

Another way to speed things up in the xbar would be to have a card machine so contactless payments could be made. Quick and simple.

I went in that awful weatherspoons railway a few weeks ago on a Saturday night, non of the young people at the bar had cash in thier hands, all holding cards for a quick contact less payment.
Just 3 weeks ago when they had that day with all the drunken women they were leavi g early as no card payments
