Margate. Apathy being stirred-up already?

This is not meant as a shit-stirring post.
People are on holiday and many clubs struggle for supporters to volunteer and for officials to cover for colleagues in August.

...and Gary's just a tad down at the moment... And tends towards the unfashionably realistic.

However, even given the general negativity on here over the last few months, I found the lack of enthusiasm for the coach to Margate surprising. I know Margate in August is a "Day Out" trip and a minibus or coach arriving at 2pm might not suit some, but I was still surprised at an almost total lack of takers.

There are no trains at all. I doubt I'll go. Ten or fifteen years ago, cycling 80 miles to an August game on the Kent coast wasn't out of the question. Nor was pedalling back pissed. I'm under no illusions that I'd make it one way in less than about 8 hours these days and there's no way I could get back. I don't drive or ride motorcycles pissed, so a road trip isn't attractive. I've yet to look at a National Express coach, but it's not out of the question.

*Edit* - can get a respectably speedy morning coach to Margate for a tenner... But return coaches are sold out.

I think going on the "B" of the bang this season may well be more important than usual and avoiding an early FA Cup banana skin is crucial.
