I don't think the modern football fan could handle the boys pen. Ahhhh, dad, someones in my seat!

Nothing quite like climbing up the cage and clinging on with you hands and feet, ah that sweet noise of infant voices coming from the pen when they sang.

....and then getting held up for your bus/chip money by owners of said angelic voices.

Can the club do student season tickets? Some people are mature students and over 25.

Along with sacking off Carling and stop charging horrendous prices for food/drink at Goodison? At least bring Guiness back which they sacked off and serve some Real/Craft Ale like Spurs do.

Also our atmosphere at Goodison at the moment is horrendous. What can the club do to improve that?

If students are over 25 they should be funding themselves and getting no subsidies unless they are doing an occupationally minded course like nursing.

Most mature students are bad bellends too. They don't deserve any concessions

If you still a student after 25 you should either be doing your doctorate or you failed so many times you should pay double for your entry fee.

I think the definition of a mature student is a failed undergraduate who failed in the workplace.

I always thought it meant them that had beards & hairy bollocks at an early age.

Are these genuine, silly question I know

Wasn’t a million miles away.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Thats literally the Tory attitude. That academic/artistic subjects should be the arena of the elite or those in the better schools/with the financial means or that education should be purely geared towards employment rather than enjoying learning new things.

I left a stable job, done an access course for a year, decided what it was I wanted to do (which the government happens ot have a shortage of) and ironically the person currently in that profession classes me/my friends at uni who are both my age (as a Mature student) for doing that as a 'bellend'. @Brownie . People get all self righteous and on their high horse on 'how i speak to people' on here and the manner i communicate things and my general attitude, well get on Brownie's general attitude.

Mature students should get the same discounts (including at Everton FC) and be allowed to do the same subjects with the same funding as all other students.  Otherwise you just fall into the Tory trap of divide and rule. My Mum was a mature student, she still got discounts at the cinema for me and her. Why should Everton be any different?

Because Everton is a private entity and should have the right to decide either way? Don't be so entitled.

You know what they're looking to do over here in New Jersey now? Not only are in state students going to be given financial assistance (don't have that much of a problem with that), but illegal immigrant students are as well!

For me personally, it means I will have paid top whack for my education here at international student rates (which are a third more expensive). I'm also having to pay well over $100k for my step daughter to go to college. And now I have to pay for illegal students? Give me a fucking break. Tell me how that's fair.

When a teacher/NHS worker goes to Nandos/Vodafone and they show them their DfE/DfH employment card, they do not ask their age. They just give them a discount. Same thing for students at Pizza Express, McDonalds or Co-Op.

I get your point that it differs from organisation to organisation, and I'll say to @Silas and @Bally its not a huge deal. I accept some/maybe the majority might disagree with me, and thats fine. But to me it does seem a little odd how we do not have a student category or even a category for those on in and out of work benefits. The club used to give discounts to social housing tenants for instance and that was a great initiative that they do not seem to do anymore.

Anyway on a more basic level, can we have @Bally Guiness back at the match? I know this got mentioned by @Simon Paul in a podcast (not just my suggestion) but generally how terrible the selection and pricing of alcholic drinks are at Goodison. Although to be fair, Stowford Press is alright. Magners/Bulmers/Koppaberg would still be better.
