Apart from the exposure to sun and rain the family stand lacks instant access to drinks and snacks, an essential requirement for young children!

The family stand has a snack bar right next to it.

Southend have always traveled in numbers and now they're in a league where their fans believe they will win away, those numbers will be greater. I'd expect them to have 1500 on Saturday and the game should be attended by approx 3000 on Saturday.

I also expect us to bounce back and deliver a home win, but I'm not the best to predict as my status in the reckless league will tell you.

Presumably the Family Stand tea bar would be open if the Family Stand was open, as was the case vs Eastleigh! I’ve never sat in there, but surely even with minimal staffing it would give you a better chance of getting a drink and a snack for a child than the Legends Stand tea bar, which has been completely overstretched and painfully slow to clear the queue on the occasions I’ve used it. You can see the game while queueing for the Family Stand tea bar, too, unlike the Legends tea bar, where you can’t see the pitch and where the half time queues are long and very slow-moving.

There will be a queue as long as Southend pier for drinks at half time.

I posted on the supporters association thread on the topic of refreshments, but does anyone know if there has been any progress on this? Hot drinks, hot food? More staff - perhaps all three!!!. Ps I note Beavertown have been completely taken over by Heineken, not sure what this means re drinks supply.

The club has just tweeted this:

Which looks very good!

And on another note, I'm surely not the only one who is actually looking forward to the game; this season, early on though it is seems quite different - not the masochistic 'why the f**k am I doing this soul searching before I press 'yes' to buying tickets that has characterised the last two seasons. And crepes to boot..
