There's a twitter video advert now.  It says open at half time.  I think that's a mistake unless they have changed it?  The featured food includes the grim hot dogs you get on the concourse - hardly street food.

I doubt the sweet cart will last long, people will obviously start taking the piss with those and leaving with full pockets.

It's £3 in the Witton Arms  . The Diggers also charge £3 now as well. Yew Tree has been charging £2/3 for a few seasons now.

The Diggers didn't charge last Saturday

It's saying sold out. I think it was yesterday I had a look and there was 9 left.

Dunno about being got rid of, it's looking more likely to be expanded.

I find it very difficult believe that demand could go from 0-100 in a week, particularly given the photos from Saturday.

Is there a ban on alcohol inside the ground for UEFA games?

You do wonder if someone,  somewhere got wind of what was going to happen with the Holte and thought the Witton Arms was worth a punt.

They probably looked at what the Aston Tavern are doing if that’s proving viable/successful. We drive past both a lot at random times and the Witton Arms has always stayed open (though very quiet) in the week as well, whereas the Tavern is closed. The Tavern refurb must have cost an absolute fortune, a massive increase in capacity, whereas the WA was always a big pub.

You’d think maybe the smaller boozers like the Brit and the Swan & Mitre could work as Desi pubs, judging by the success of the Railway and the Soho Tavern in Handsworth back streets. Maybe not enough on-site parking, although Holborn Hill and Thimble Mill Lane are free round the back.

You have to admire the fighting spirit of some of the pubs - The Villa Tavern came back from the dead last season, and the Albion Vaults is still open.

My mistake about the 9, that's for West Ham. Which is now down to 2.

I'm trying to find out about this. The only articles I've seen so far are about UEFA lifting its ban in 2018. I assume the ban hasn't been reinstated since as I'd expect to find more recent articles if it had.

£4.80 for a sausage roll against Brighton I believe
That should be bagged and binned. Please don't hang it on a branch in a tree.
