Wetherspoons have managed it for about a decade and it’s great (I was a student... )

Things are already paid for so stops stupid people on both sides dicking around with cash. Also means they can pre-pour without fear of wastage (hot drinks with a lid on will stay hot for literally forever, you can’t drink them for five minutes with a lid off anyway, and with beer if the logistics are right then it won’t be sitting there too long).

Queues put people off. Minimise the queue and you increase sales without increasing cost. In all honesty though, selling a pint at £4 your margins is probably about £2, £2.50 at best. Selling to an additional 10k a week (optimistic), is making you £0.5m p/a. Like ticket prices, it isn’t a difference maker.
How many staff are at the bars in the Wolves ground was the question. Do you know that?

Like i said no one has to pay for the ticket price rise. They can vote with their feet and wallets. I think if you do want to watch the team next year then you are going to have to pay more.
And I say that's very poorly thought through, a decision made with little consideration for the economic situation of many of our fans and indeed given the recent performance of the team, wholly unjustified. Plus we already have really high ticket prices.

Yes, it does boil down to "pay it or don't pay it". I'd rather not have to have that kind of relationship with my club if it's all the same.

There’s plenty, no hard and fast rule it depends on the size of the counter and cash points. Ultimately they’re trying to serve 1000s of people there and then in 15 mins. It ain’t going to go well.

Which is what i was trying to point out in my original post about it.

Yes, it's not the number of people, it's the number of serving points and the fact they aren't allowed to be prepared beforehand

It's not my call. We're just discussing it with differing points of view. I see your view.

Each to their own and all that but never quite got the mentality of the half time pint anyway.

Imagine you're in a pub and the bar is perfectly clear, you'll be straight up, order, pay and away. Are you knocking that down in 15 minutes? I would imagine not.

Then extrapolate that situation to one where you know it'll take you a while to get served, so knock a load off that 15 minutes.

It's invariably overpriced (their bottles of Kingston aren't *too* badly priced, but fuck paying what they ask for anything on draught, and bad luck for the beard stroking craft ale folk, we've got nowt) and you'll be back in the pub in not much over an hour later anyway. Just wait, la.

Like you say each to their own, luckily for me I'm not a drinker at the football, we're invariably in the concourse at least half hour before k.o. get a coffee or pop and maybe a choccy bar for half time if I forgot on the way to the game.
I try to limit my fluid intake before and during the game....god forbid I need a piss during the game, I'd hate to be one of 'those'

I usually quite like a quick drink before kick off - nice to have a chat with people I only see very occasionally. Being in the BW lower it’s usually very quick to get in and get served. Sod queuing up at 1/2 time tho.

If Mendes stopped moving his players around and getting agent fees, they wouldn't need to increase season ticket prices.

All agents do the same, that's how they make their money, although I do dislike them
though, and I think the club should not pay them it should be the players.

Long since thought this, they don’t represent Wolves they represent the player so the player should pay.

If Wolves contacted an agent and said, yeah we're after a centre half this is our budget then sure pay them a finders/headhunters fee.

I think in many cases, players pay their agent percentage of their wages too. Absolute bastard parasites, they are.

They've always read social media, including this forum. The previous owners did too, and the ones before that.

A lot of words to say not very much on Part 4. And with that in mind, I'll be doing a write-up as the opener to my Elvis 1968 style comeback. Although I've lost weight rather than piled it on. Stay tuned.

(Tbf, it's probably nothing you haven't heard from me already)

My only concern with reading social media particularly Twitter is it amplies the few not the many. I hope it didn't give a disproportionate view of how unhappy fans really were with Nuno and this season.

If it gets rid of Willian José then everyone wins.

Seriously, I think they take it into account (they might have read the mood music around ticket prices, who knows) but I doubt they think "Anthony1654998 thinks Nuno is shit and we should get Rafa in, let's do that".
