You didn't even leave Wales. How can you possibly comment. As I stated earlier, I live 8 miles from the ground and my road wasn't driveable till around 11.30 and that was with the weather being better than the morning forecast. Any staff living more than 5 miles from the ground would have issues getting there.
The police and safety group would have advised the club. Just because the decision doesn't meet your agenda, doesn't make it wrong.
