Coventry are the best supported team in League 2 by a mile why on earth do they have to make life so difficult for travelling fans?I expect this is down to so called police intelligence and previous history from over 25 years ago football fans do have long memories.

Quoted from lukeo
Why do they need loads of police tomorrow? Have Coventry got a known force of hooligans? Plus ours only turn up for the big local derby's. Very strange decision. Also with games like this they should open up the main stand for families of away fans, Plymouth have a family stand where both home and away fans are welcome.


What shouldn't happen is for town fans to go on the cov message board and suggest they go in the main because the tickets have stopped being sold.

The main stand is home fans only and despite the jokes about it being the "werthers brigade" inviting away fans into it is a recipe for trouble

Afternoon guys...

Was hoping to travel up with the family in the morning but that's obviously been ended now.....very disappointing.

They must have been expecting hundreds to pay on the day....this happened at Crewe a few years ago and there was loads locked out.

I'm sure you will find the majority of Cov fans good natured and contrary to some of the comments I have read, the big club arrogance disappeared for most years ago........we've been through that much s h I t.

I suspect it's more down to Sheffield United a very few years ago. The police are not worried so much about inside BP or probably even about Coventry fans in general. It's August. Cleethorpes High Street and the Prom are beckoning the idiots.

You may well have a point and yes we have plenty of idiots but even so the planning for this must have been sorted weeks ago.  Cov will bring more than any other club I suspect but had it been further into the season and playing well the demand would have been double and more so very surprised.

I would imagine we'll take 2k plus to your place and can only imagine the outrage if we were treated the same as you guys have been. Maybe the club and police have their reasons, but to not offer an ounce of empathy or shred of reasoning in their statement is embarrassing. The whole thing smacks of being tinpot, an unfortunate recurring feature of our club's "PR" department.

Police intelligence (oxymoron) no doubt, certainly has been some beef in history with Coventry following a certain jolly hockey sticks outing there a few years ago...on my last trip to Highfield Rd they welcomed us with a low level firework display, free pint glasses and a selection of pool table accessories ....Vauxhall Tavern i think was the pub ??

SH!T ??....Have you lost at Chasetown yet during your tumble from grace ? You will know what Sh1t is when that happens  

Every sympathy with you otherwise regards all the off field stuff you have endured.

Do your fans hold any one person in particular to blame for your meteoric descent ?
