    As has been covered previously. Commuting to & from Belfast is NOT simply “ 10 minutes to Airport and a 35 minute flight “ If you can make that journey ( Training ground to home ) in 45 minutes I’ll happily buy you beers for the rest of the year .

    As I said , it’s nearer 2 1/2 to 3 hours each way . And that’s without delays.

    My flight home from Belfast City airport , from leaving hotel to landing two weeks ago took 4 hours 15 mins. Not counting travel home from airport.

    Now , the rumours are that Ok wanted to commute daily . I’ve said before I’d no issue with people commuting but just think of the logistics in this case, IF , and I stress IF this is indeed his request.

    First flight from Belfast intl is 07:45 this would entail OK leaving home at 06:00 approx . Get to Ralston about 9:00

    Return flights from Paisley international leave diff times each day between 15:30 -16:45 . This could mean him leaving after only 5 hours on site (incl lunch ) on at least a couple of days . Not ideal for the club or players .
    From OKs perspective , I would say continued 12 hour days with two flights a day would pretty quickly take its toll on the man .....and his family life.

    Sorry saga , hope it gets sorted soon.

    Sorry for sounding like a travel agent again but with the amount of travel, driving and flying I do myself , I can tell you it is not the ideal scenario .

    I was being sarcastic . I know it isn’t 30 mins, I make the flight every month.
    The total time with check in / security travel etc is probably nearer 2 1/2 hours than 30 min. Just wanted to highlight that the 30 minute claim was bogus.

    I would prefer a home based manager but I can’t see an issue if a manager wants to travel like OK , surely it’s his say on how he travels or where he stays . As long as his job is being done properly.

    Don’t think it would be sole reason or reason enough but it certainly would be added to other factors to make a case for it.

    OK managed to do what was asked of him while managing to commute. IF this has now become an issue , I would suggest other things have come into play

    Oh aye , so we play Coleraine in a friendly with Oran in the saints dugout then GLS announces the morning after that he is leaving to take up his old job .
    Aye , that’ll work .. I can already see you and your anti GLS gang polishing the baseball bats and looking out the pitchforks for the next beating !
    “Scott has sold us down the river “,” Board have taken is for mugs”, “ SMiSA shafted yet again “

    IF he is going , go now. Move on .
    We’ll get over it and Coleraine will simply be happy to have OK back and will be thinking St.Who ?

    I was only pointing out it’s not a long commute think most are aware no one teleports themselves onto an airplane wasn’t adding up every minute it took for every part of a journey and he was only pointing out he doesn’t even live in coleraine as you mentioned the travel from there to Glasgow since you wanted to be so precise on travelling times.

    think we all agree anyway if it’s down to the commuting alone then it’s a load of bollocks from the chairman guess we just need to wait for the actually story to come out hopefully at the latest tomorrow

    See my post. I actually agree commuting isn’t an issue , was pointing out that it isn’t as simple as just 30 mins away. Add half hour pre boarding , security and disembarking / travel to Ralston and it would be 2 1/2 - 3 hours.

    Still not a problem imo but not 30 mins .
