It might be the beautiful game but the food certainly isn’t.

Football fans up and down the country have taken to social media to share the food horrors served up at stadiums during half-time, after one supporter who ordered a £2 hot dog was handed a solitary burnt sausage in an extra-large bap.

The snack, which was less a hot dog and more a dog’s dinner, was sold to Spurs fan George Tucker while he was watching non-league side Frome Town FC, in Somerset. 

Mr Tucker tweeted: ‘Got myself a hot dog today @FromeTownFC and this is what I got!!! £2 I’ll never get back.’

The miserable meal sparked a hilarious reaction from fellow fans sharing their own culinary disappointments, ranging from pitiful pies to not-so-cheesy chips.  

Fan Tristan Broadhead posted a snap of his crusty-looking pie he said he bought at Championship side Barnsley. He said: ‘Standard pie quality at Oakwell.’

Archie Crane then posted a photo of his cheesy chips he said he purchased at League Two team Stevenage. It showed a measly portion of chips with a single slice of cheese draped over the top. 

He said: ‘This beaut from Stevenage few years ago. Wonder if it’s one or two Michelin stars?’

Embarrassed of their sorry offering, the red-faced Southern League Division One South side then messaged Mr Tucker blaming the poor food on a new member of staff.
