    Paul Barber only needs to rinse the fans by selling an extra 2.4 million cuppas this season for this clear (to some) cash generating decision to become more important than finishing 15th this season compared to 16th last season.

      But what if we finish 15th AND sell 2.4 million cups of coffee.

      It is obviously a personal view but seems to be shared by many on here that the tone is often overly corporate and dictatorial. My preferred tone would involve much more emphasis on the friendly relationship and mutual appreciation between 99.5% of fans and the club.

      Ahh, you diagnosed yourself, I’d suggest most of your alleged brain can be found attached to your ********.

      This is where I like to do the maths:

      Estimate of flaskers at the Amex: 5% or 1500 (and I’m being very generous)
      Home games per season: 25 max
      Cuppas sold to make £2.4m: 2,400,000 / 0.8 = 3,000,000

      That means each person that previously took a flask would have to buy 80 teas/coffees per game - and that’s from concourse kiosks that are already operating at capacity - to make an equivalent profit. When you think that the club voluntarily spends around 4-5m each year on AITC and other loss makers, such as the women’s team, you’d have to be financially illiterate to think that this was a commercial decision.
      To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal...

      Dump the ladies team and get them distributing free teas to fans who don't want to leave their seats. The natural order returns.
