Impressive what putting them under pressure will do. Hopeully next a box to box midfielder...

I ahve never done the coach - but seriously considering it. How does it work - do they send you a ticket? Do you have to take i/d? and most of all is it dry?

they seemed to be suggesting an 11 departure for 8 pm kick off in Lpool - which sounds way early. they arrive a few hours before the game?
I've been on the coach twice. The first time it broke down and we had to pile on some of the other coaches and sit in the aisles.

The second time another coach broke down and they had to do likewise.

Can't think where this came from? Wasn't in the OSB minutes?

To be fair, several fans were tweeting the club about this after the Sheffield United coach fiasco. I know I did on 7th January so they knew it was a gesture fans were asking for. Glad the HU action give the club a timely reminder about it.

I'd like to think it was multi pronged approach :lol:

Person behind asking WHUFC about sanitary products (Esther) was messaging the "OSB Womens" rep for months on end. Nothing doing and sometimes no replies. The H List picks up on this and also starts to begin championing the cause. WHUISA saw H List raising the profile and reach out to Esther and find out the back story of non-communications and no progress (and that the womens rep changed at some point early last year with no announcement or election/selection process for a replacement). Make representations to the football club and then the OSB suddenly pick up on the subject.

EDIT - Well done HU
Am sorry Sanchoz, surely this cant be the case. Am certain I have seen David Baker (him with the expensive 'sunnies') walking round with a tampon in each ear in an effort to promote this issue.

As a STH & general supporter, I’d just like to assure you all that David Baker doesn’t represent me.

I thought that was an important disclaimer to make. Thanks.

Well done HU. Typical of the club to make it sound like it's come from the OSB.

For those asking questions about the club coaches. I have been on them a couple of times when I've not been able to get return trains from places. Although they depart only from the OP, they do usually drop off at Redbridge Station/roundabout on the way back, they usually ask if people want this when they set off on the return journey. Yes, the coach is most definitely dry :lol:

The coaches I have been on, they only arrive in the hour before kick off, not that early. I think they set off early as a contingency. Last time, when I went Wolves, they left someone behind and had to turn round and go back to get them (30-40 minutes wasted) and then the driver had to have an official rest stop at a services so we only arrived with about 20 mins to spare before kick off!

They send you a ticket in the post for the coach. I've never tried the Hornchurch coaches as I live in Chigwell.
