    Seems city are following the likes of other clubs and from next month will only be taking card payments. I personally think this is wrong and I see fans boycotting using the kiosk across all grounds. My mate who follows Burnley one of the first clubs to start doing this from this season was only telling me last week that his daughter who works behind one of the kiosks at turf moor had said their takings are around 30% down at present, so will be interesting to see if this as an effect at city in a similar fashion.

    To me it makes far more sense, speed wise not to be having to count change out etc meaning we should get served faster(maybe) but obviously for people who don’t regularly used cards there will be a problem, one kiosk in each part of ground could be cash only surely ?

    I agree one kiosk could easily be cash only but common sense won't prevail it never does.

    It’s the way society is going. We’ll be cashless within the next decade I think.

    One way to protest would be to queue let them pour everything and then offer them cash

    Makes sense, Cheaper to insure and takes pilfering of cash out of the question especially with so many temporary staff

    I knew this was coming.

    They'll probably just activate the contactless payment chips implanted by the vaccine we'll have had to have to get into VP come October.

    Also wouldn't surprise me if they only work if you take the knee while paying.

    Apple Pay with my phone in seconds…what’s the problem? I realise it won’t suit everyone but it’s quicker, cleaner, and low risk to go wrong.”Money” is, like it or not, disappearing from public life
