The Hotel Factor
 
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?

Apparently we trained at Scunny’s training ground on Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning. Ratcliffe made the comment that the players can get leggy/tired staying over and not sleeping in their own beds. Seems like an excuse but we certainly don’t travel particularly well.

£15k is nothing, between ticket sales, merch, sponsors, documentary and the inventors the club could have £6m turnover this year.

Yep. Very amateurish. By now I would expect us to be flying to away games like the Premiership boys :coolgleamA:

Or just travel down on the day by coach like a lot of other teams do at our level ?

Who cares how much it costs, we are not run by a penny pinching co-operative anymore.

Seeing as you've got time to do some back of an envelope maths, could you tell us what percentage of our yearly spending £15,000!! represents? Thanks in advance.
