Well now people have had their say here's my reply.
1 Do people really think Gannon would want the team to travel independently, as he is so into preparation.
2 If it really doesn't matter why travel by coach at all, save money.
3 People keep saying I know #### all about football, well I did say before a ball was kicked Bell and Mulhearn won't set this league alight 3 goals between them so I know a little.
4 Home games players will have a set time to meet, those that may have knocks possible in earlier for fitness tests,players usually have a pre match meal, so sat together talking possibly about the game, but just camaraderie it's all about bonding on the day.
5 Gannon likes to spend as much time as possible with his players, yet again they will have set times to meet depending on where their playing, so meeting up early the manager gets to see the players and their attitude, and maybe it changes his line up well before kick off.
6 If players turn up by car 90 mins before kick off, whose to to say just before kick off their under the weather, or got a niggling injury, then the manager has got a big dession to make just before kick off that he wasn't expecting.
7 I for one would like to see the players in early and travel together.
8 Somebody said God you'll want players coming by coach for home games, well if you new about football, lots of football team's do travel to home games by coach it's how football is nowadays.
9 Lastly considering as most seem to think most of our players come from Preston, Chorley area so made their own way their because of that, then County draw, Liverpool, Everton, Burnley, Both manc clubs how would you like the team to travel.
10 I would like to add I didn't say we lost because we travelled by car's or minibus,we were crap on the day, but what I will say is we'd been on a good run, yet Saturday was poor in all departments, why maybe the preparation.
11 Piggott lives near Chorley, he met the players Thursday so did he just make his own way to Chorley and start without really knowing the team.
112 So if everyone still thinks I'm talking shite,fine I won't lose any sleep about it.
13 Not even going to go there
