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.


I fully agree. Fans deserve a welcome and decent Lincolnshire hospitality. Both of them. As for the FGR management Vince down, they can get stuffed.

I have a good picture of the "empty" covered terrace. Would love to put it on here as it also shows the driving rain. Can you put photos on this site? Sorry if this is an ignorant question that has been asked many times before.

You will have to use Sage and Onion and not Pork of course.

I remember a few seasons back stood on the open terraces at Alfreton and getting very wet when the heavens opened up. Solihull last season was pretty miserable too, although they at least demonstrated some sense and allowed the Lincoln fans to take cover and mix with the locals.
Personally I think those in charge at FGR simply dislike us and want to make our visits as uncomfortable as possible...

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

??? Vegetables are food. Double M's carpet burgers are.......carpet.

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.


You mean that most farmers voted for Brexit and now realise they're f-ucked? :pointy:


Especially hard-up farmer James Dyson who, having campaigned to leave, is now pleading for the government to provide the subsidies given by the EU. Good luck with that one...

To end on, I heard a story which almost made me wet my britches yesterday. at half time of Tuesday’s game, in full view of Mr Vince and the other self-knitted jumper wearing eco-warriors, a certain Mr Chris Ashton took a pork pie from his bag and munched on it, before complaining about the soya milk in his tea.

Close your eyes and picture in now, our Chris, with no malice whatsoever in his entire body, munching his way through one of Lincolnshire’s finest meat-based products completely oblivious to the furore it might cause.


Somewhat doubt Ashton was oblivious at all.

In order to help form a judgement on that we would need to know if he eats a pork pie at all away matches.

Hope it was one of Curtis's - it makes me all nostalgic to think that.

Maybe next time (if there is one) he could eat a stuffed chine sandwich.

My heart bleeds for him. It's also grossly hypocritical as I very much doubt he - and many other farmers - would have supported subsidies for say, the mining, steel and car-making industries. Oh no, it's the "rigours of the free-market" for them but, ah, whopping great tax-payer subsidies for our Tory-voting land-owners.
