You are a good egg.

I have no idea what Stripes is like pre-match in terms of numbers as I never go in there beforehand so not sure if an issue, but in terms of post-match might it be an idea that the 76 Lounge is available to all? I may be wrong (anybody who knows please correct me if I am), but I would imagine the players' families go home at FT rather than hanging around, and would imagine a lot of those in hospitality do likewise, so guess there are not many people in there after the game? If so, I am sure that that bar being available would see more of our fans staying behind for a drink or two after games?

Other than the selection of beers available and the prices, which I know are an issue for many, the other complaint I know many have made in the past, and the reason they go straight to the pub at FT, is that Stripes closes during the middle of the late game and they don't want to have to miss some of the action when moving from being kicked out of Stripes and getting to the pub to watch the conclusion. Obviously this is a decision that depends on numbers/takings versus staff wages, and is also sometimes because of a function in the evening.

It is just such a shame that out of 2000+ people, only a literal handful currently hang around afterwards for a drink, this is clearly a huge wasted opportunity for additional income across the season.
