  1. ‘Welcome visitors in a polite and enthusiastic manner’?? – No, I think they must have all missed that bit of the training course – a more sullen and miserable mob you couldn’t meet!

    Mind you, if I had the job of standing at thr bottom of the stairwell in the East Stand on a cold and windy night I might have the hump!
