    Is it easier typing in that style with deliberate spelling mistakes than just typing normally?!

    I don't think there is anything cringier than typing in a "Scottish" accent. Do people write like that as well?

    Well from where I park and approach from Lochend side the answer is zero.

    Is it beyond your comprehension that some people like to get to the stadium and take their seat with some refreshments or a snack that they have not either had the time or opportunity to procure prior to the match?

    There is also the fact that most types of drinks containers are banned from being taken into the ground.

    Jakey is Scots slang. How very dare you.

    Simple solution is not to buy the crap they offer. If enough fans boycott the catering stands then the supplier and club will act as it will effect their profit

    The club will be happy with that arrangement. They have guaranteed income, without the hassle of employing staff.

    I work at a major entertainment venue.

    Our food offer is provided by other companies but the offer is Ďcuratedí by us depending on the event. The contracts include a minimum rental income plus a profit share agreement, and contractors who donít measure up donít get invited back.

    Iím sure there are many street food style operations who could do a lot better with the kiosks at ER... and make themselves and the club more money.

    Jakey language worked out well for Irvine Welsh.

    When trainspotting first came out took me a while to get in to the language

    Catering is so poor at ER - I'd like to think the club were looking at it.

    I think Hibs should consider approaching Greggs to take over..

    I want a big pot of hot home made lentil soup on one side and a big pot of good old fashioned stovies on the other.
    £2.50 each.
    Nothing else for sale.

    Easy to manage.
    You would sell thousands.
    Would take seconds to effect every transaction.
    Club to share profits.

    That sounds like a sensible arrangement, but I get the feeling that the Club just don't want the involvement.

    An even simpler solution is for the club to listen to the complaints and do something about it.

    LD has often spoken of the Ďmatch day experienceí being important to her and the club...it seems on this subject though those words ring rather hollow.

    So rather than boycotts with people and kids doing without in an attempt to make a point the club should simply sit up and listen and take some affirmative action.

    A good idea but we don't even know if Leanne can make stovies or has a decent soup recipe so it could be a long wait

    Hibs get a fixed rent. The caterer being boycotted or otherwise losing sales will not affect that.

    Longer-term, there will always be another caterer willing to take on such an arrangement.

    But the price of contract will be based on previous sales. But surely the whole point is to get a new provider to improve quality

    The pies in the West upper are sound thatís why no one is complaining.

    In fact, Iíd guess the pies throughout the stadium are generally fine, itís only a dozen or so folk on here complaining when they probably sell thousands each game.

    Sounds like you're the kind of person the club should be speaking with.

    The catering and Behind the Goals experience is definitely not "Hibs class", and the third parties that it's contracted out to should be getting told to up their game, and pronto.
