This pisses me off as well. Club are doing far too much for ordinary fans and totally disregarding those of who are considerably.....

The club are missing the point completely. You would think that after the unsuccessful launch of Terrace View they would get the message. The service and the quality of drinks is the Holte Suite has always been poor. And now they are expecting supporters to pay for a service they previously had for free.

Whoever is behind this wouldn't last five minutes with Alan Sugar on the Apprentice.

I've been saying for years, the best thing they could do Is get rid of the cars on the car park.  Put a giant bar up and some quality food vans. Open the gates from 11am and that car park could be packed every week.
In addition to that have the concourse open for two hours post match so supporters can let the traffic die down and eat and drink in the ground in the meantime.  Improve the facilities in the area of the ground that need it.

It's really not rocket science

I dont think people would want to drink outside on a car park during the winter months though. They just need to leave the Holte Suite as it is instead of charging silly money.

They're talking about using the car park. Now, take a wild guess what for.

On the subject of quality food, I noticed yesterday that the area in front of the stage is packed but most people aren't buying anything and the DDC-style concept is down to four options. There just isn't the call for £12 burgers and the like. They're certainly looking at keeping open longer but again you have the problem of the area not being the nicest or easiest to leave once the crowds die down.

Assuming the rumour is true then £70 a game will mean it's corporate. So on top of the massive price increases of the last 2 years there's losing the free cup game and access to The Holte Suite.

For £70 you could stay in the city centre, have something really nice to eat, and have a few drinks rather than a shit quality buffet, a program thrown in plus a couple of shite quality beers.

I think they are blurring the line between corporate and 'normal' or at least are trying to, with things like this and the Terrace View, they're going for the average fan with more money than sense rather than lowering the standards for corporate.
