One of the most bizarre stories I've spotted for a while:

Are they not up in Inverness for one of the Friday night televised games?

Might start game with less than 11 players!

seen another story yesterday that they have pulled some proposed funding for the squad as well as unhappy about things at the club. Going to be flooded with some barnsley dev players instead.

Is it not the clubs responsibility to provide transport for their staff to/from away games?
Serious question cos I'm not sure... But I would think it would be.
Their bus is probably in for a service but the super sansational soaraway Sun have nothing better to do 🤣

I just posted about this. Never noticed that this was about the same thing.

There have been issues in the past with insurance when players have not been travelling with the official party. One of my wife's friends was a youngster with Cardiff and he had to make his way back from an away game rather than going on an official coach. He was involved in a serious accident and the club were found liable for not providing transport back.

If I have to work away, or anywhere other than my normal place of work, I absolutely would expect my employer to provide means of getting there.

Something not right with that story though. Not least that it's in the Sun. Alarm bells straight away.

...ken?
