    I can think of one moan……and the article is spot on, there really isn’t much to moan about however since doing up the catering kiosk in Railway paddock the addition of separate windows with no queueing system has been a bind. It’s a niche moan however some proper barriers so we all know where we are would see better queuing and you might even make it to the toilets if you’re lucky too. I hear no ends of moans on the same object, so hopefully it will be improved. Certainly if there was another choice (clearly there isn’t we are all stuck there then it would be disastrous for sales.

    Good article Rob. Minor point, I think Smith is out of contract at the end of the season.

    I’m wildly optimistic this season myself and I don’t want to rain on your parade but the club really need to get the scanners working more regularly on the Railway Stand Turnstiles.
    Not sure what it’s like in other stands ?
