I came on this forum to defend my teams honour regarding the the brickbats they  received when our game was called off due to a 'tropical' storm 2ish hours before KO last seasonThe recent events for the Notts  fixture did raise a sardonic smile.
Anyway on my last visit some kind chap gave a review of watering holes, we became ensconced in the 'Live and Let Live' superb thanks. So pubs and parking.There are 10 pubs within 5/10 mins of the ground. However when on the duel carriageway approaching the ground at the large tesco island,  ground behind it, go straight onto the next island 1/4 mile. Take 1st exit you are now on sheffield road (someone mentioned parking fees) there are numerous streets to your left all except the 1st suitable for free parking. Saving you 7 quid which will buy you a couple of pints (Derbyshire prices)in one of the locals. In this area there are 2 pubs a club and 2 micropubs.. The Derby Tup and the Beer Parlour being the best choices both have up to 10 handpulls. Probably an allowance for the previous nights activities should be made as is the case with the many eateries. There are 2 more pubs right opposite the ground The Glassworks another realale pub The Donkey Derby crap  ale but does food (?New years day)

Anyway I hope all enjoy your 'in' ground experience for £18 perhaps alittle reflection on what our experience was like at the Walks looking over a fence  at an  empty terrace whilst crammed in like sardines may help to get things altered for future visitors.

Pity about Joe Rowley Saturdays game is probably to soon for him.
Cheers

Typist I total agree with you the barrier needs to be moved to give away fans more room I believe this is already in hand,if it isnít it will be

That's good at least future visitors to The Walks will have a better experience.

Just be aware when Grimsby visit!!!!

Could someone attempt to explain the contempt afforded the away supporters by King's Lynn FC? Why did we have to be penned into a corner of the ground with 2/3rds of the shared open end made available to accomodate approximately 100ish Linnets.  Obviously everyone can see a solution, but hey! let's rip the away fans off for 21 quid and show them as much disrespect as possible by giving them a horrible experience..

At least for the return fixture away fans will only have to pay £18 for a good view, a seat with leg room and a humane area to despose of any excess ale.

Sorry to hear of any fans being treated in such a manner,but I do believe some steps are being taken to rectify the situation? Maybe someone from the club could clarify? :dontknow:

Is it fair to say that there is a general apathy toward this subject  amongst your fans with the lack of comments or is it just an acceptance that the away fans lot is not to be a happy one.

On Monday there was alot of kids 6-10 year old in the away end?? probably on their first ever away trip with their fathers (I remember with fondness as I'm sure we all do my first trip with my dad even though it was a 5-1 defeat) and after an afternoon of peering through grown up legs trying to get a glimpse of the pitch and listening to folk moaning about having to pay £21 when some 20 yards away they could have watched the match in relative comfort, their lasting memories of King's Lynn will not be good.

Isn't it time you KL supporters put some pressure on your chairman to get away supporters a better deal after all we are all away supporters at some point. Having read the excellent programme he obviously reads this board.

Yes, think many Lynn fans are used to and prefer buying on the day...can see there being a crowd of around 2700-3000.

Re pricing structure, I guess time will tell...think a few hundred will not be there because of price and maybe a few more because they don't feel the connection and/or don't enjoy the match day experience as much as they used to

As mentioned on another thread 'Bank Holiday Monday'  could prove interesting.

Chesterfield fans are becoming aware that tickets may/willbe at a premium. With a lot of ex Chesterfield folk now residing in Norfolk they are being primed for ticket procurement. It may come as a shock to them having to pay 21 quid though when they were more used to giving the bloke on the gate 2 bob and getting a tanner change!!!

Someone needs to be looking at away allocation urgently, who wants to be chucking away 3/400 £21s away.

What's the chance of all the home sections being sold out?

Wouldn't it be sensible to allocate all the Tennyson Rd end (or even the North Stand) to away fans  when a big following is expected?

Paying £21 to be packed in a corner seems a bit of a rip off and very Borehamwoodesque.
