It seems to be broadly assumed that coach travel is for those who can't drive, don't have cars or are a bit, or even a lot, infirm.
Problem is after a late KO and long (ish) distance traveled on the coaches you arrive back at the Hawthorns long after the last train and metro have run and buses are few and far between so getting home from the drop off point becomes a total pain. You either drive there and drive yourself back home if you can, which many do, or you stump up for a cab. If you choose to drive to and from the Hawthorns you then have to seriously consider the option of driving the whole way and not having the extra hour or more drive home on top of the coach journey. I guess a lot also depends on your booze intake and ability to drive after sleeping it off, or not, on the long journey back.
I know a bit of a ramble but hopefully you get the gist of the problems with long distances and evening KO's for the average traveller
For clarity I am using the official coaches for the Stoke game because it is such a horrendous place to get away from post match and the KO is early enough to make it doable

I read somewhere that it's £72k per match. I'll try and find the source.

Appreciate the gesture but for those of us travelling from elsewhere the coach deal is a joke.

Assuming 10 coaches at £18 a head (advertised price) thats just under 10k. I expect we'd take close to 2k so surely £5 voucher with each ticket is fairer for all fans than a coach for circa 25% of those travelling.

Have we been on more times than anyone else this season? More than we’ve ever had in one season in living memory
