You'd need nanny58 there making sure you'd actually eaten the samosas before you could get your stamp
Surely a kids’ castle rather than a triangle?

Hi all,
Just a reminder that we'll have our stall behind the North Stand again on Saturday.

We had a few connectivity issues at half-time during the Leicester game that we're hoping have been rectified.
Just in case, please try to visit us before kick-off as we've got more time to serve you then !
If the Connectivity issues do get resolved, can I have your password?

Had my first 3 samosas today and well worth the wait. Really delicious. Hopefully the future of catering at BFC…

Berkshire, Lboro was my uni!
They looked great!
I brought my own sandwich today to look after the pennies, but I’d love to try next month. Hope you’re back on the North side soon

Yes - we hope to be there again for the Everton game on Sunday 28th.
Ps - was a strange day today - fans turned up quite late for the game.
Someone suggested it was because they were in local pubs watching the Man U game.
Does that sound accurate ?

Could've been delays due to the Rugby at Twickenham. I didn't get in until 2.55

With it being a rare Saturday 3pm game, people may be more comfortable in their old routines of arriving to the game shortly before kick. Whether that be from home, via the pub or anywhere else.

Working in Southall I just couldn’t pay £6 for 3 samosas on principle.

I do love a samosa though.

There were £6 for 1 samosa in the Indian restaurant I went to after the game today. Do you never go out to eat? Or should, somehow, Indian food be "cheap"?

Sigh.
No. I’m just saying that I am lucky to be able to get them cheap.
I assume that £6 for one was in a very decent restaurant. Not a suburban curry house.

Oh I must have missed that bit in your original post. £6 for 3 very decent samosas. Not sure how good your "cheap" ones are, but I presume from your comments that all samosas are exactly the same seen as your will only pay 1 price for them.

Next time I eat a burger in Mayfair I will remind them that I never pay more than the 99p that wimpy charge.

£6 for a samosa. My mum would be like that is 600 rupees and thinking how many cups of masala chai one can drink with that. Anyone paying £6 for ONE samosa is barmy !!!!

Backing up @nanas point, £6 was excellent value for something that was every bit as good as GPG Dugout colleagues have been raving about all season. Service was quick and excellent, and you get asked which flavour of Samosas you would like, as well as which sauce. I had the mixed bag of 3 different types. The absolutely delicious Lamb samosa (my favourite already!) bore no comparison to the dried out tasteless Lamb Shwarma available inside.

I make no apology for this one-sided post, and will try to get to the club earlier ! Location is/was inside the turnstile, then back out into the concourse, between N123 and N122.

Would certainly back a loyalty card if one is offered, if only to support the cash flow of this excellent venture.

Thank you so much for your feedback and also for trusting us today.
I'll pass your feedback onto the team.
ps - the Lamb ones are by far the most popular !

Has it been confirmed if you'll be by the North Stand tomorrow?

Thanks everyone for coming to see us outside the North Stand today.
We hope we helped to warm up an otherwise freezing day !
We sold out in the Dugout bar within 45 minutes of the final whistle.
Sorry to those who missed out but we'll try to bring more next time !

The Lamb ones were superb today!
Very warming on a cold afternoon. I felt sorry for the North Stand sellers today with our useless WiFi making it hard for their card payments. Absolutely delicious as always…
