Anyone seen a pie for sale at Odsal this season? I know I haven't. That's 4 pies I've missed out on so far.

Surely someone could order some bloody pies?

I was also chatting to another poster on here yesterday who said that the bars regularly run out of crisps etc within about 5mins of opening.

Somebody's missing a trick here. Are the club so short of cashflow they can't ensure sufficient stocks in place to sell or is it just down to lack of organisation?

Does anyone know who to contact about this major issue?

Must admit, i wanted a pie yesterday and i asked but they just said, not got any. I just don't fancy cheesy chips or a burger.

Two months ago who'd have thought that our main concern would be that we couldn't get a pie.

And the crisps, don't forget them!

If I were you, I'd pop into The Sparrow on North Parade prior to kick off and have one of their pies with mushy pies and mint sauce.
Very worth it

When it happens the singing bunch can steal the City pie chant from 2 years ago.

I went to the bar before the match to find no crisps apparently on sale. There was an open packet of Doritos on the back, but since I doubt they were selling them one by one, I don't think they were available. They also had no milk for hot drinks. It was about 10 minutes after the gates had opened (apparently they got some later).

There was a big sign at the back of the bar saying "Two Pint Glasses Available". I requested said two-pinter. They didn't have any available. I settled for a single, I'd look a right alky carrying two separate pints!

The previous food van at the back of the Provident has been replaced by the "Wimpy" one. Now, I have nothing against Wimpy. But the one thing I enjoyed to eat on a matchday last season was a hot dog. I loves myself a hot dog. The previous van did a "Small Hot Dog" which was a proper frankenfurter (as a hot dog should be), and a "Large Hot Dog" which was a sausage in a bun. The Wimpy one does just the one style, and it ain't the Frankenfurter. A Sausage in a bun is not a bloody hot dog! It's a sausage sandwich! My blood boils....

So now I'm gonna go to the chippy at Odsal top on my way to the ground.
