What are everyone's thoughts on the supporters not being able to go on players bus anymore as a smaller bus will "reduce costs " seems yet again fans don't mean anything at Frickley

I can't make a direct correlation betwen reducing the size of an often under utilised players coach, in terms of capacity, & not caring about fans? I really can't see that. In fact, its a massive opportunity for the Supporters Club to provide options for real supporters & support local transport companies.

There used to be a nightbus in Sheffield, no one used it & they cancelled it - it wasn't an attack on people having a night out.

We can run a 55 seater coach with 30 people on it (most games) or a 30 seater coach with 30 people on it (every game). Which one makes the most sense?

How much is the difference in cost? Presumably if it's a game where lots of people are wanting to go you could approach the club and ask to share a bigger bus and take subs in advance.... for games where less are interested, book yer own minibus + no need to wait around for the players afterwards = all sounds good.
(+That way it will also show whether it really is a cost issue too for any doubters.)

PS Possibility of winning every game not withstanding, a lot of the games may have less take up this year as regards the glamour (or not) of the far-off southern locations.

P'raps it boils down to different regimes having different approaches and priorities. Pre-season Karl was on about wanting to get a good atmosphere of togetherness this season on the coach between players and fans, as he felt that was important to the way the club was run in general. But other people have different ideas and if it's seen as an unnecessary expense, then some things have to go. And whether you can directly relate it to wages, may also depend on where the wages money comes from and where the bus money comes from?

I still have some unwanted bottles of 'bus atmosphere' from Skem away if anyone want to take them off my hands?

The people who know me know what "atmosphere" I'm talking about.mr sitter yes you're quite right I didn't go on the bus during that time as it was an extremely miserable bus that only half the players went on the other half and management chose not to take the bus which didn't bode well for team building

It's ok for most supporters most can drive but what about the ones that can't drive and it's used to be good on the bus as it was a good atmosphere win or lose. I wonder who agreed for it just to be a players bus. I think frickley ain't bothered about it's supporters

I am familiar with the delights of the Frickley Fun bus, yes. :o
(so can kinda see why someone might not want that kind of eight-pint-riff-raff distracting the players)
