Just seen the clubs email, rubbish that we have to get the bus!I've seen nothing to the contrary. Not sure how they would police this anyway. If you turn up at the stadium an hour before KO, are they going to insist you return to the city centre to get the bus? No. I'm more bothered about post-match. I won't be happy if they force me to get on a bus to go to a place I don't want to go to.
Not actually bothered about getting it away from ground, possibly safer anyway. But to sit in a dry stadium for circa 3 hours is not my idea of a decent away day.They can’t force you to get the bus to the match, but the journey back is probably a different story.
Just asked Supporter Services about this online. They said it wasn't compulsory to get the bus but all they can "recommend is what the police and the club have advised for fans to do."surely no one is going to get a bus up there with almost 4 hours until kick off? Quicker to fly home it is only 28 mins on the metro then 10 min walk
What they could and should do is try and arrange for the busses to leave at 6pm. Dare say a few more might then.Just asked Supporter Services about this online. They said it wasn't compulsory to get the bus but all they can "recommend is what the police and the club have advised for fans to do."
Well it was the same with visting AEK and Ajax fans at the Amex was it not? with fans "advised" to gather at the King & Queen pub and take the exlusive buses provided.Greek police "advise". Was the same in Marseille though plenty made journey solo.
Oh damn, I think I just missed the bus!
