I'm not vegan. I eat meat. However this apparent "no choice" that FGR offer is tiresome.

It's a well known fact they serve only vegan food. Anybody moaning about a lack of choice had the chance to buy meat pies, sausage rolls, bacon sandwiches before they got there. It's called forethought. They don't force you to eat it.

As for one football club advocating one type of lifestyle choice damaging the British Farming Industry I find quite amusing. There are other bigger issues for it to face than FGR.


Agree with most respects, although your logic would mean that a restaurants and cafes not offering a vegan opportunity would be ok, so taking in your own vegie meal into eat would be ok. Don't think many establishments would allow that.

Im not a vegan myself but I find it fascinating that people get so wound up about what other people choose to eat or not eat.

And lets be honest, there's a lot more wrong with Village Green Rovers than just serving Quorn burgers.

It is also a ridiculous argument, in that the whole of life revolves around choices. We knew last night it was likely to rain and we were likely to be on an open terrace. We nevertheless chose to go, and don't regret that choice; even though we were cold, wet and shivering, indeed I am only just properly warming up.
That does not mean those affected are not entitled to complain that the away fans could and should have been housed in the available covered stand. There should have been a choice and 99% of Imps fans would have then chosen to be in the covered north stand. It is the same with the food............. so easy to make 99% happy.

They don't sell fruit inside Sincil Bank. If I need or want my daily intake of fruit, I eat it before I get to Sincil Bank. I have a choice.

As Maine Road_96 says there are many worse things about them to get upset about.

No. It's a football ground. You're there for the football. Food etc is an additional choice.

If you go to a restaurant, you're there for the food. That's your choice and there probably is an option for you to eat your veggie meal elsewhere. I didn't turn up at the New Lawn last night and expect to see the Luton vs Port Vale game.

I also don't go into a restaurant and complain if they are showing the "wrong" game on the telly. That's not what I'm there for. And if it is, that's my bd choice.

Wasnt there last night but remember an away game at Northampton (Cricket ground) many years ago when we got absolutely drenched. I think we had two players sent off and hung on to 1-1 draw but not 100% sure of the details. It seemed like we had won the league at the end of the game.

The heavens opened on 23,196 fans at SB in November 67. It was cold and wet and those of us on SB terrace looked like we had just climbed out of Sincil Drain. Great night though despite the defeat.

I well remember the Derby game got home and my ankles and feet were black were the colour had run out of my socks they were so wet, remember been absolutely frozen at Rochdale when they still had the open terrace behind the goal going back a few years.

It would not have hurt FGR to have let our supporters stand under cover but these days it is the usual rules and rules and they cannot be broken!!!

It was very poor of FGR management to treat away fans like that. Vegan food isn't really my cup of tea but it's a lifestyle choice for many and it shouldn't be a surprise to any visiting fans.

But my issue here was the well forecasted bad weather and the placing of over 300 away fans some with kids on an open terrace completely exposed to the wind and driving rain. When meanwhile the original covered away terrace (has been four the past 4 years I've been) was three quarters empty. Plus there were loads of empty seats possibly hundreds in the main stand. Why on earth would any club treat visiting and paying fans like that. No excuse.

Stupid thing to say but from you I am used to those. If a restaurant does not serve food I can eat, I don't go in it. Is that too complicated for your tiny little mind?

I would not normally reply to a comment about my point a view, but to call or say someone is stupid for putting a argument or point of view forward is in its self disrespectful. Everyone has an option that can be right or wrong, but I respect there views and agree to disagree but neverr call another person stupid. Rant over.

Agree with BJM on the vegan lark. Plus FGR's food has the same decent meat content as double M.

If you say something stupid, I will call it stupid. And I explained why it was so obviously stupid.

At least the tabby cat outside the turnstiles was friendly! Sheer disgrace, the worst possible customer service. I asked a chap to take a picture of the covered terrace behind the goal which we used to have immediately prior to kick off. Their fans were so sparsely spread out that you could count every one of them and I too counted no more than 60.

In the return fixture, treat their manager, players and board with utter contempt but let's welcome their fans with open arms. They can't affect the dickheads in control.
