Exactly this is what they charge people for now as I understand it. Hence why I started this thread

Did you post it in the Snug John? Or was it moved?

The raspberries on WHO are your middle aged mockneys who live in Leigh on Sea but still think they're true east end boys.

Time to grow up and stop thinking they're hard nuts.

That site is just formatted terribly. I've only ever read things on there perhaps a dozen times and can't cope with the layout and functionality.

Are people biting their lips on here?
More seem preoccupied with WHO than the O/Ps point.

A service for fans, from fans and KUMB want to charge?

Jesus wept, that's appalling.

Any of you that go to away games would know that H/C would help you in anyway possible if you're in trouble..I've seen it first hand.

as for moving it to the snug :thdn:

So was the service free when Romford was a regular?

If so, it all adds up now.

Was it a service?

Or was/is it a business?

I always thought it was a coach company.

H/C is not a coach company just the name they use, they hire coaches from a coach co.

As someone who quite a few years back got talked into running our own coach to away games, I soon learnt U stump up a considerable amount of money, then spend countless hours trying to sell the seats/get people to pay, most want to do that on the day, if they don't turn up U spend hours chasing em for payment (that's not your mates) but the casuals that U need to fill the coach to cover the costs.

If your lucky U make enough to get a free day out, but effort/risk against gain it's not worth the grief.

So for my twopenneth, it's definitely a service.

I agree with a lot of the comments already made on here. The fan base it ripe with division and moves like this don't help. I want to support KUMB so it can provide a platform to help things like Hornchurch Coaches.

I think an acceptation should be made for Hornchurch Coaches and that we all support the site as much as we can financially.

A good question.

Spot on Phil mate, they provide a great service.

Away day regulars will know all about H/C, Its a service provided by fans for fans and not a business at all.
