Rob Couhig pre-match Q&A tonight
Football side great.
But personally can't think of any non-footballing things where the pre/post match experience has improved. I dont enjoy comimg to the game more because of the state of the art WiFi, sound system, electronic hoardings or fireworks.
Since the demise of the ale bar I usually make a quick exit after the game. But did pop in the Vere (Caledonian) Suite after the Shrewsbury game. Dispiriting experience - supping beer out of a single use plastic glass. Used to enjoy having a choice of real ales, drinking out of a glass glass and the post match chats with players.
Yeah, but we have one of those fancy tunnel viewing areas now, so...
"we" don't, that's for "them"
I think the Chairboys village is brilliant, the WiFi is a welcome addition and I love the fireworks
The football side is a large improvement (which is of course the most important aspect), however the catering is abysmal so I now bring my own food and think the fireworks are a total waste of money.
Ditto... though should add I'm fine with the beer
I'd like to be able to buy water at the ground.
And me. The beer tent / Chairboys village is a real bonus, especially since they've worked on the queueing problems. I bring my own food as there is nothing on offer to fit my taste/budget. As for the fireworks,,,, save them for a cup clash.
I wouldn't be letting off any fireworks with the ground in its current state...
Surely that also explains why we've had so many injuries lately? Ageing joints + parched ground is hardly a great combo!
Frank Adams roof repairs to be done? My seat gets pretty wet these days.
I have enjoyed the fireworks to the extent that they coincided with wins and I like pretty coloured lights but if they cost us money I don’t see how they are worth it. They’d feel rather off kilter after a poor loss. Added to that, surely no-one is spending more money in the ground because of them so unless they are free for us I’d spend the coin elsewhere.
whats the catering plan for the FA? I appreciate the problems with staffing but surely there is a way. The demand for food and drink is there and I understand that Rob has realised that unlike US sports, people only want to buy it pre match and during half time. It pisses people off when they miss kickoffs and goals.£
the football itself is a great success. No complaints there.
As this dropped in the middle of the firework discussions, at first glance I thought you were going to suggest the management team were lighting and throwing bangers at them...
That's one way to spice up a bleep test
I'm enjoying the footballing, but though I recognise I am insulting age-old match traditions, I eat me dinner before the game, drive so am forced to deny myself alcohol before or after the action and I bring my own water/pop. I don't mind the post-game fireworks but the braziers in front of our stand before kick-off leave me cold (though quite hot).
Are the questions pre-submitted and curated, or is it a free-for-all?
Technical difficulties! At least the Wycombe Sound jingle isn’t too painful to listen to.
Is everyone else getting music blasting too? Emo stuff
Another shot at United from Gaz. He’s understandably really frustrated.
Derby situation still on-going. We have received some money already.
Not working on Wandererstv
Rob expects to have a second access road in at AP very soon. Plans for terrace to be removed and replaced with a new terrace (plus space for disabled fans) once access has been sorted.
Some interesting stuff here. Clearly Rob was loaded with ‘good news’ to release
What did he say?
Gaz sounded well pissed off about the Vokes injury question.
‘You’ve all worked out who the player was and who the club was. We were really far into the process. Their owners won’t even talk to their fans. That’s the difference between us and them. Our owners are here now in front of you.’
It’s a fair question and it’s fair if he chooses not to answer. If he feels he gets an advantage then fine. If I disagree with that policy that is also fine.
I think we see a player in a boot on crutches like we have in the past and can make our minds up.
Worked for me on Wanderers TV
