To be fair the menus sounds good.
My only slight beef (!) would be that the vegan option is a pie for both main and half time.

Interesting though that the reason we've lost Moroccan Pies in the GA area is because they can't source them.

eating a sponge cake at the game is more embarrassing than the statue
It's the getting the train, getting off said train, walking towards the ground,feeling peckish, popping into Sainsbury, ignoring everything on sale, shoving people out of the way, seeing the cake in its box, picking it up, checking the best before date, shoving more people out of the way, approaching the check out, scanning the box, eyes wide open, dribble running down his chin, smuggling a box in the ground, sitting down with plastic cutlery, lips licked, cake exposed to the fresh air, knife at the ready and heaven as the first mouthful hits the taste buds and Fulham fan is oblivious to the surroundings and those around.

Give me a samosa any day.

I'm in the posh seats just behind the away end at Spurs v Bees, Menu looks decent even if a bit fishy
Only one fish dish there, and that's in a selection of 4.

Why can't the rif raff in other parts of the ground have the Steak and Harvey's Ale Pie? I bet it is down to the alcohol being consumed within the bowl of the stadium,

Always makes me laugh how much they dress all these menus up hilarious
Not least their "Pan Fried Corn Fed Chicken". As if you'd fry it in a bucket, or on a shovel!

Unless they're worried "Fried Chicken" sounds a bit KFC... :LOL:

Other football fans would be embarrassed by the sponge cake.

Fulham fans were embarrassed by the plastic cutlery.

It is what many people want nowadays and already partake at other venues and events. It was just the Brentford bubble at Griffin Park that prevented us moving forward with this type of thing, like the rest of the world. We are just playing catch up.

Enjoy sponge cake too if you want it. Are some on here so worried about their fragile manly image, that eating a sponge cake will take that away from you? :LOL:
Not sure it has anything to do with being 'manly'? I don't know but I suspect plenty of females or less 'manly' males would find brining a full Victoria sponge cake to a football match rather sad.

The idea of a full sit down meal before a match is ridiculous to me. Not going to do much jumping around on a full stomach. More likely nod off.

Preserving a sponge cake in salt? You Philistine.

Hear what you're saying, but could you explain the logic behind such an opinion, how do you come to such an aversion? I really am just interested.

You lot have no appreciation for the finer things in life, do you?

Brentford try and broaden your horizons with a nice Jalousie and some beetroot hummus and all you want is a mug of Bovril and a Wagon Wheel.

Peasants.

If someone took a Chicken Balti pie to scoff at the ballet or the theatre then I suspect they may come in for some scrutiny for that choice. Nothing more than that really.

A little birdy tells me there are a only a few rows between us in the West Stand. Shall we meet for a slice on Sunday?
Yes please. I normally bring along a pleasant supply of Custard Creams and Malted Milk biscuits and a tip-top pot of Lapsang Souchong for my half-timesie treat, so if you bring a nice tartan blanket we can have a whizz of a time, just like the hardcore Fulham do (see photo for evidence of their top boy, blade in hand, giving it large to that poor and delicate vanilla sponge and whipped cream-filled delight). 🤓

Half time tea sounds spiffing. Let's synchronise pocket watches for half time whistle + 2 mins to avoid the crowds

I'll wear a (non-silly) hat so you won't miss me. Tally-ho!

"What's a Brentford Sponge Cake?", I hear you ask.

Answer: "It's like a Fulham Sponge Cake, only it's risen higher"

And yes, my other half has been watching the Great British Bake Off in the next room....
