    Some great ideas. The club needs to get any bars indoors as the weather in Manchester isn't conducive to standing/sitting outside most of the time.

    The thing is, it should be aimed at you and me.

    When I went to City Sq the other week I would say 90%, maybe more, of the people stood there were adults, most didn’t have kids with them.

    Yet on the screens it was all aimed at kids, it was all kids on the screen and was absolutely terrible.

    It was like aiming CBBC at an average age of 56!

    Looks a decent place ... but all stock Heineken products.

    Nowt better than a top notch beer garden.

    On average it only rains 140 days a year in Manchester. That leaves 225 days a year when it doesn’t rain. The average Winter temperature is never so bad an extra layer and some long Johns don’t sort out.

    Nice beaver, was it?
    Never been in Mary D's or any of the others close by the ground, including Summerbees' or bars inside the ground as I don't drink lager or fizzy pop (apart from Vimto or similar). I used to go in the Legh Arms, then the Globe, but prefer to watch the match sober these days. Heresy, I know, but I'm not paying good money for shit,

    I won't miss it or those like it.

    Also there was a pub called Bluemoon near to where the Victoria is. It was open for a season or two when we first moved to Eastlands.

    Listen, Can you smell something?
    The FA/ football bosses don't like fans drinking at football games. They would rather you got a coffee and sandwich. They would also like anything done in the ground. Any suprise pub after pub from the town towards the ground are shutting? They want you in. Spending on site.
