Also went with the training ground but it doesn't mean I don't want the others.
PS. Not a fan of craft beer. It's become a marketing word, supposedly for 'good' beer but really it still means fancy keg beer. Cask conditioned is the only way.

What is the obsession with craft or real ale at a football ground it's bloody ridiculous.
Your there for 2 a bit hours at most the stuff will be stinking if you had a couple of weeks between games.

Anyone been served one in a League ground?

I went for the new training ground as number one. Here are the rest, in oder of priority:

More investment in the playing squad is difficult to answer because I don't know how much the club is investing currently or what plans they have for the future. I expect Simon Sadler will be investing generously.

Better beer? You bet! I always put this to the club every chance I get. 🍻🍻

New East stand? When we have all the above sorted.

Other - the bars are a dismal experience. If we can't make them bigger, at least put a coat of paint on the breeze blocks. Of course, we have the Armfield Club now so this is not the priority it was.

No matter how you dress it up success on the pitch is key to everything the training ground is also very important the complete stadium very nice when its done but less important.

I don't really care, they seem to be doing a good job all round. I'll leave it to the clubs judgement.

Went with investment in players, everything else flows from success on the field

Grumpy, I've said on here before that I'd love to see every bar at the ground personalised with a player. So: under the central West (where I am), maybe the Alan Suddick bar, with photos of the great man on the walls, along with a plaque stating his football CV. I can understand a nervousness about the photos being damaged or stolen but, honestly, who's going to do that at our own ground?

Yes, me at Brighton (2011). I had a pint of Harvey's cask. Bloody good it was too, along with an expensive but good steak pie. Good trip all round (2-2 with an excellent brace from Kevin Phillips). I'm sure these things could be managed properly. We shouldn't always have to think low-brow just because it's a football ground.
