Technology is useful but a dollop of common sense would improve the vending issues overnight. Pouring 1000 pints/opening 1000 bottles 10 mins before half time, having beer-only queue and selling for a round number price are simple examples

Also having staff that don't look like they've not slept for 3 days and have virtually no customer service skills doesn't help
i would hate to get the 1000 pint/bottle after its been sat there for god knows how long.

Suspect our leaders will not be in a position to broadcast anything beyond what's already visible on the jumbotrons, with controversy avoided.

Car parking? Maybe it will help the more occasional visitor.

HT queues can be reduced, sure, but lines are inevitable, people need to understand that.

More important is something to do for an hour before and or after in order to reduce congestion outside. Eat, drink, watch, play, without too much push and shove. That's where they need to be smart.

Millennium stadium has pumps that do 12 pints simultaneously- about 5 seconds to pour.

Easy to do quickly.

Or, they could give you plastic bottles which take seconds. They would only need to take the lid off. Should be foolproof and quick and easy for a complete idiot to do ... Oh, they do that already?

Beer bottle vending machines are illegal in the uk.
Or people walking around with big beer dispensers strapped to their backs pouring pints. Bet no one has ever thought of that - oh hold on a minute.....

A beer with "no foam"?

Fuck that.
Last little gem in this thread (before yours) was June 21st. Two months later you decide to come up with this little nugget of deep thought!? ;)


Actually well played sir - totally agree! :LOL:

This. A thousand times, this.

Phone signal/wi-fi = fine, especially for half-time. Sorry OP, but beyond that it just feels to me as though those features implemented at the Levi stadium aren't conducive to the sort of atmosphere which most supporters have always been keen to ensure and safeguard at the new stadium.

The only 'interactive experience' I want at a football match is for me and thousands of others to sing our hearts out and the team to win. I'll watch the replays on Match of the Day when I get home thanks.
Tbh ALL Internet access, WiFi or otherwise should be blocked during game time imo.

Is that possible?

There will Prolly be a handful of wankers using GPRS to take a Snapchat.
