    Annoyed at myself and a little bit the club!

    I realise this thread is a little self indulgent but hey ho! I rocked up at the amex a few hours early to soak up the atmosphere. I went to my seat and gazed around the ground drinking it all in. I then got a text from some friends saying they are in Dicks bar and it was apparently my round. Without thinking I wandered out and went for a drink. After a lovely hour over a pint I went to return. I was horrified to find that there is no readmittance. Of course I understand this rule but after all the decades of supporting the Albion I was exasperated to find they would not budge and I was set to miss this momentous day. I did lose my sh@t which wasn't the best response. After composing myself I sweet talked one of the Stewards who to my eternal thanks was kind enough to turn a blind eye and let me in. Phew!!!
    Of course it was my own fault but you would think they could have shown a little kindness on the day of our long awaited return.

      But 'they' did in the end didn't they? After all the steward is part of 'they'

      True but the official response was no chance! The kind steward ❤️❤️ Went against their policy

      Person tries to get out of their round by entering stadium early shock. I know your sort. Called out by your mates.

      Without thinking...

      How did you just just wander out? The only bits open are the turnstiles. My husband was taken ill last season,and had to plead with the stewards to let him out.
      He had to ask three times before they let him out, and was advised he couldn't come back. He had to emphasise that he was ill, and going home, before they finally let him out.

      On the way out did you not have to pass stewards? If so it seems odd that they didn't warn you.

      Sounds like a well managed policy. Official stance banning re-admission combined with common
      sense application on the ground. Bit like standing at away games etc. Best just to admit you are 100 % wrong, give thanks to our wonderful club and keep a low profile.
