"Noticing Stephen Shepherd's story last week about half of Gillingham's side not making the Orient game due to traffic, are there any other infamous cases of a side not arriving on time for the game?" asked Kevin Meadowcroft last week.
One answer here from Rob Davies: "This story does not concern a team but rather an individual, Ishmael Demontagnac, who during the festive programme of 2005-06 stayed in bed for Walsall's trip to Bristol City on 2 January 2006, instead of getting the team bus. Apparently he thought there was no game that day and that it was his day off. Walsall lost 3- 0.
