    £5 coach travel to chesterfield

    See Alan Hardy offering £5,coach travel to chesterfield to all Notts fans . Donít get me wrong a gesture is a gesture and you canít knock it to a degree. But I think for most itís easier and maybe cheaper to drive . Been better to offer cheap coach travel to forest green rovers or something

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannd moan!

    Folk have been moaning from the "what about me" club that he doesnt look after fans who travel away and or season ticket holders, demanding refunds for poor performances and free coach travel for loyal fans.....and he come up with this to, I assume, get as many people to this TV game as possible, at a key time of the season....


    aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand moan.

    Give it a rest

    Nice to read a post from a grateful supporter.

    I guess its a good offer if you don't drive & also if you live close to Meadow lane. Otherwise seems pointless as no more expensive in the car.

    Ask AH if you can just have the £5 and make your own way there, that seems reasonable.

    I got my first car when I was 21 and have travelled to away matches by car ever since. Prior to that though, I regularly used buses, special trains and on a couple of occasions chartered planes. There are probably loads of younger supporters without cars who will take up this offer. AH is obviously doing his bit to try and get as many Notts supporters over to Chesterfield for what is one of 11 key games we have left. Canít see any negatives in this.

    don't get me wrong any Deal Alan chucks out if a good deal no matter what it is. Its just my view that the Chesterfield game . I cannot see many extra people going based on £5 transport unless like I said you live close to meadow lane . otherwise you got costs getting to the ground then getting home after the bus returns to meadow lane. 3 of us in the van will cost less than £15 fuel,

    I'm similar in that I've always driven to away games as well. The only exceptions is when we have played big London clubs in the cup such as Chelsea and Fulham in recent years. Mainly due to the roads and parking at the ground and general roads being busy.

    I think it's an excellent idea from the chairman. The game is on TV so it's an incentive for people to go to the game and support their club. Plus if people want to have a drink prior or after the game, then they have the option of getting the bus instead of the train.
