It might have helped if they'd used a bit of sense and let people take water inside.

I took mine inside in the lower holte without any problems.  Even in my own stainless steel breaker.

Iíd say itís WAY more than a thousand people not botheringÖ maybe stick another naught on the end!
I was desperate for a drink yesterday, but no way was I queuing in that steaming concourse for an hour. I went back in at kickoff as I was gasping, and it still took them 10mins into the match to serve me!

The situation was probably exacerbated by the train issues, but they had plenty of notice to work around that. And letís face it, itís been like this for fucking years. Itís not a one-off!

Seems there isnít one fan on here that thinks the service is even ok. Surely there is a way to communicate this to Purslow and go to lay the hammer down? Iím in the middle of the trinity upper - tempted to make a feckin banner to get the message across!

Were they stopping people. I showed my plastic bottle of water to a bag checking bloke at the LTR and was waved through

I very rarely engage with in stadium catering because it's crap but I tried to buy some water at half time today and gave up. Truly abysmal.
Compare that with Alexander Stadium last weekend. If you took in a water bottle refills were free and readily available.

Isnít that the case at VP as well? Take in an empty plastic bottle and fill it up at a tap. Itís what Iíve been doing for years.

When I entered the LTR about 11:15, the concession stand on the right still had the shutters down. Did that open up ?

If they're going to insist on selling chips, then make sure there's a constant supply of chips. The way the queues grind to a standstill as all the servers wait for a new batch to arrive is a piss take.


 They ran out of chips  near us on upper A5 before halftime, although i enjoyed the veggie pie 😃 seriously i am excited about the new north stand development, but they have to get the basics right elsewhere first

It's ironic that whilst it's not perfect, I don't really have any problems getting drinks or food in the soon to be replaced North Stand.
Were you there yesterday. There was no Amstel an hour before kick off. The cans they took out of the fridge were warm. The queues were massive. How in the name of God did they not have Amstel on tap for the first game of the season. At half time they close one of the shutters to send us all over the edge

Not a catering issue but my daughter said that there was only one working stall in the Ladies toilets in the Upper Doug Ellis.
Theyíve had all closed season to sort that out. They clearly need a decent Facilities Manager.

They were trying to save you from the ungodly piss that is Amstel?
