Quorn

Postby michael » Fri Feb 23, 2018 12:52 pm

Interesting stuff about the 'link up ' on the official site.

what bugs me as ever is that the club keep promoting this vegan image-fine-but the selection available in north and south stands is rubbish .

here again -freebie quorn bites to those in the east stand, but not to those in the south and north stands.

i would much rather be alongside the pitch in east stand-but like my 'freedom of movement ' ,where i am not wedged in next to someone moaning all the time, or with bad breath/wind.

the 'discrimination' really eats away at me.

Its enough to make me want to turn to meat

Interestingly, Quorn is a micoprotein and related to a type of mushroom/fungus. Fungi is more related DNA-wise to animals than plants.

I'd love to know a vegan's take on this.

never mind the good win today, much more importantly-i received and enjoyed 4 quorn nuggests from the north stand food outlet ,so credit to the club for its no discrimination policy , where such gastronomic delights were not an exclusive privilege of those in the east stand after all.

-and again-they were very nice

A fungus isn't sentient.

How do you know?

After all there has been evidence for example that some plants are not only sentient but show signs of altruism.

In the east stand the queues are too long. Means loads of people are getting up before the first half ends to go and get food, or return to seats during the second half. No complaints about the food though I look forward to the burgers.

We certainly need to improve the capacity and choice at food outlets around the ground, a task for the close season. But don't forget the excellent Asian fayre available next to the North stand - well worth a try and the vendor is a brilliant guy

Inside, I went for the onion bhajis, cauliflower tempura and accompaniment in the recyclable box. Plain excellent. Meat eater I may be but I love the fortnightly array at TNL

Some of my best friends are fungi

I had probably the best lunch so far today at FGR since Dale took over running FGR. Katsu Aubergine (crispy fried in breadcrumbs but still texture) with rice, curry sauce, pickled vegetables and ginger slices

Not a hint of a meat dish with no meat in it and properly tasty all round. Keep up the good work. Looking forward to the next "special" offering.

I played footy tonight and now down the social network for a few sherberts.

Knock me down with a feather but since last visiting on Sunday for the chesterfield game the landlady has introduced a vegan menu alongside the other one. I've been drinking here for well over 30 years and seen zebra steaks, snake, buffalo etc and then nachos with stuff etc.

Just had a falafel wrap and the biggest shock was it's a proper full on job. Crispy falafel, chickpeas, fresh spinach, onion salad, chilli sauce. Tahini and a toasted flat bread.

I'm shocked that a traditional Youngs Pub in Wandsworth is doing it. Long may it continue. It's saved me going for a kebab later........

That sounds great. Shame we can't get things like that at TNL.

Hi everyone,

My name is Maisie and I’m going into my third year at University College London. I’ll be doing my final year research project (dissertation) focused around the attitudes towards meat eating and veganism within your club’s ground. FGR have given me permission to conduct interviews in the first couple of weeks of the new season at the stadium, and I’d be extremely grateful if you could spare 40 minutes for an interview.

If you are interested in participating at some point in the week between 8am - 5pm during August or on the days of the home matches, then please follow this survey link to get more information and sign up:

Didn't "Chef Em" leave FGR some time ago ? Or am I mistaken?
There is no 'I' in team

i try not to join the moaning ranks , but i guess this one does eat away at me.

i can't find it now , but do i recall somewhere the club stating that they 'hope' to do something about the variety available in the catering outlets away from the east stand ? .

Anyway-i 'Hope '(there's that meaningless word again ) i was not imagining it, and if so i look forward to an announcement that us stander upperers will be able to buy something other than chips and even more chips to satisfy our vegan lusts.

that given-hope and action are worlds apart,so i won't hold my breath over it

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
