Erm, okay you got me !

Wrong!

As I mentioned im not having a pop at any era this has been going on long enough overnight stays. All I was suggesting was travel to Aldershot on day and see how it pans out.

[QUOTE=sionwxm;2515712]I am sure the overnight stays this early in the season, not only breaks up the travel on match day, but helps with the team bonding/morale with having so many new players at the club. We need to have faith that it will click one day, our management team will be working hard to find that winning formula. Itís been a tough tough start[/QUOTE]

There is a theory that team bonding/morale can be improved with overnight stays yes I get that. Just the suggestion of travelling on day rather than spending the night.

The other matter which I have not mentioned so far is that the team could travel up the night before the weather could take a turn the following day then the game gets postponed so would mean another hotel stay for the rearranged game.

[QUOTE=MichaelP;2515663]No matter who the manager has been for the last 15 years + . Overnight stays donít seem very successful when you look at games we have stayed in hotels for.

What I couldnít get was the team travelled down on Monday for a game on Tuesday evening.

It used to be that if we had a game in midweek we wouldnít bother with Hotels but if it was a weekend game and involved a lot of mileage a hotel the night before would be a given.

Now even at the cheapest calculations if you take into account the accommodation and food that all staff would need itís a big part of the yearly spend.

Say you have 2 players to one room. = £50 for the room x 8 rooms for a squad of 16 players that would come to = £400

Then you of course have management so say Manager / coaches / Physio etc say another 4 rooms = £200

That comes to £600.

Plus meals and drinks could quite easily have not much change from £1,000 from match preparations as opposed to travelling on day and thatís based on the cheapest accommodation food possible booking in advance.

If you then x that be say = 15 games = £15,000 !!

Now if we were successful then it could be argued money well spent but when more often than not it isnít . Then the money would be much better spent somewhere else?[/QUOTE]

Where the hell are you coming from?

£50 a room ? you don't travel much !

[QUOTE=Corner Flag;2515740]£50 a room ? you don't travel much ![/QUOTE]

You can if you book plenty in advance get rooms for £50 at travelodge for example plus if you are block booking rooms you may get corporate discount.

I have stayed at some Travelodgeís over the years and had rooms for £29 , £39 , £49 , £69, £79 etc

But of course if itís more per room itís more expense.

As i say the money is not the be all and end all is points on the board and if hotel visits are not contributing favourably then trial an away game or 2 travelling on the day cannot harm.
