The thing about these ideas though, is that it benefits the whole community, and the police as well as the fans to dissipate crowds more quickly, with less frustration and anger building up. I just don't get why they don't sort it.

Yes, it must be an absolute bastard living anywhere near VP after a game. There's just no attempt at traffic management at all

Anyone noticed how ever since these meetings started, we’ve been having these threads and more or less the same things get raised every single time, yet never fixed?

Loudness of PA, inability to buy food and drinks, post match traffic. These are the same things we were asking General Krulak on here over 15 years ago and they STILL haven’t been addressed.

There’s no point even raising much of this stuff with them.

Good point, maybe they should just not turn up.

They have to have the meetings, but there doesn't appear to be any compunction to actually do anything about any of the items raised. Also, it does seem that reading between the lines, that some of the people going along (absolutely not Dave, for clarity) are a bit in awe of the surroundings.

Maybe we should ask something different like, "Can we please have Purslow back?"

Maybe ask if there could be an agreed list of Actions. That can then be followed up at the next meeting.

His Podcasts may be a bit of an acquired taste, but in fairness to the bloke I have heard more than once that he is one of the few at these meetings who really challenges the club on various fan issues.

According to that apparent leak, Mo Razaq has challenged them enough to be on Chris Heck’s hit list.

Clearly I haven't been trying hard enough.

Not for me , because I simply won’t ever attempt to buy a drink before the game or half time again. But for those that want one, and god forbid some food , they could really look at having a decent system and some decent staff/leadership on the bars ?

Cheltenham starts in a few weeks. Ask them so pop there and see how they manage to bang the drinks out instantly ( even Guinness)
( spoiler. They have staff pre pouring them constantly )

Also the lift to upper trinity. Every game it gets stupidly delayed as its settings are slightly off. Which I turn every week leads to people shouting there’s too many people on board ( there isn’t )

It's got to be the North Stand. Whatever about the crest- and it's bad - the North Stand issue is far more of a concern for any number of reasons:

a) does it mean they aren't as ambitious as previously
b) does it mean they want to squeeze every penny out of what's there currently
c) does it mean they want to move us from our home of 125 years
d) why were the comms around it so bad.

My solution to (some of) the travel issues - make the Grosvenor Road / Queens Road / Church Road loop one way. All of the inside roads could still be serviced easily and would stop the bottleneck on Church Road in particular where you've got cars meeting head on when there is only room for one vehicle due to parked cars on both sides of the road. Would get everyone onto the Lichfield Road and away much quicker eg: Church Road at the lights left lane towards M6 right lane towards city centre.
That sounds like it would certainly alleviate some of the issues around the area

I think someone mentioned that it seems to have got worse since traffic lights were installed on the Salford Circus roundabout, surely these could be taken out of the systems for a period of time on a matchday, I appreciate this is a local authority thing, but surely the club must talk to them about making the experience better for travellers

We said that on Saturday. Also relax the restrictions on the bus lanes, which you can't use until 7pm, and alter the traffic light durations at key junctions. Basically just get as many people away from the ground in the first hour as quickly as possible.  After a night game, people using the bus lanes make it noticeably quicker to get away. As above, I realise that a lot of this isn't in the control of the club, but there needs to be communication between the club, police and council.

The thing about these ideas though, is that it benefits the whole community, and the police as well as the fans to dissipate crowds more quickly, with less frustration and anger building up. I just don't get why they don't sort it.

Well even of the Council wanted to do this, I doubt they can afford the cost of the how many people it would need to alter lights and close roads.

Can we please ask that the Nathan Dawe inspired pre match routine is cancelled with immediate effect. I’d like the crowd to make the atmosphere not the PA system and one blokes version of what he thinks is “spine tingling and atmosphere building” is just a load of noise, I’m at a Football match not a fucking nightclub. Also I know they have to play it but can we have the nonsense Premier League anthem played at the lowest possible volume so again the crowd can
Make themselves heard.
Agreed. That music needs to be sent for a Burton.

Who was the poor woman Krulak kept referring everyone to about ticketing? Is she still with us?
