    Steve.
    I have one more question.
    Am I correct in thinking that the current catering contract with Compass has ended or is about to end?

    It is widely commented upon by fans about the poor choice of alcohol for sale in the ground, meaning many fans prefer going to local pubs for their pre match pint.
    Are there any plans to change the drink offering in the near future? Given the success of the Grazing Shed kiosk, would there be a chance that one of the many local brewers (.Pipes, Crafty Devil etc) that have sprung up in Cardiff in recent years could be involved in such a venture?
    I for one would be much more likely to head to CCS earlier if this were the case.

    Great question. Can I further it Steve. A packed concourse pre game is a fine place to be. Better food n drink will see to this. Plus surely the club could do better financially than under the current deal? I don't know, but you most likely do Steve. We win away fans day of the year but I don't think we would win home fans day of the year apart from loving City n the Football of course because of the food n drink we are offered up.

    Do players and managers really look through the forums? Have you ever heard any of them talk about the forums and what they've read about themselves? Do they print out or talk about funny photoshops for example?

    I’m pretty sure they do.

    I was down the club shop one day when a few of the players went past laughing and joking. I’m pretty sure I heard Pilkington say something about “sending peas to the small cocked Tory bastard”

    Yeah they do. I watched one of their training sessions at The Vale recently and one over enthusiastic sliding challenge from Morrison on NML led to a brief verbal exchange. NML was led away but not before uttering that he'd be "phoning the pizzas" on our hero promotion winning captain.

    Steve,
    You have been such a loyal servant to the club over the last thirty years putting in so much time, effort and personal expense. During this time, which of the players or managers have you developed the best relationship, and lastly who would you judge to be the finest looking WAG?
    Kind regards

    Steve who was the best player that we nearly signed only for them to go elsewhere at the last minute in the past apart from Bent and have we turned down any big offers for players that you can remember.

    Steve,

    Was a pre-final deal done with Arsenal for Ramsey meaning he couldn't start the 2008 FA Cup Final? The large consensus amongst fans is Portsmouth were there for the taking and Ramsey starting would've swung it for us, as we saw after he came on.

    I can answer that one for you Arfur. Jones just dident fancy him or think he was ready. the same jones who thought etuhu was a better bet than McCormack when bothroyd got injured in the play off final. the man was a kent in my opinion and was more interested in the golf course at the vale than training the player. in the 8 days between our last match and then playing middlesborough in the most important game of the season he gave the players 6 days off whilst he played golf and as you probably remember we got stuffed 3-0 and some of the players were found to be in a nightclub on the eve of the match.

    Makes me sick. I really disliked DJ and his dour demeanour towards the end. And don't get me started on his disdain for the club itself or the people of the area.
