On the topic of Coventry, do they still have the casino at the Ricoh? May have to pay a visit when we go and stay over for the night

Quoted from The Yard Dog


Most clubs did not give a t**s about the tinpot trophy as they was a national protest about the competition, you only took 43,000 as its the only way you could get some revenue and it was you first visit to Wembley in about 39 years.

Big club, who holds the record for the highest attendance at the Rioch stadium? I give you a clue its not Coventry, but Leicester and Wasps 32,019 (Wasps V Leicester Tigers, 9 May 2015)

Playing second fiddle to a rugby as well.

I heard your owner going to change your nickname to the cuckoo's, I will let you work that one out.


The trophy was irrelevant it was a day out and a good one....after years of tosh.

Wasps are relying on the local community to boost their crowds.....they are at the peak of their existence pretty much where as we are clearly at the bottom....they average between 15/20,000 which obvs isn't a problem for Cov during better times.  I'm sure you will see crowds like that if we have a good season.

Cheers for popping on Cov1, I for one can see you originally came in peace...the game changed on THAT decision unfortunately, so that irks however i think most of us on here know that on the day a combination of Slades tactics, square pegs in round holes and you having a superior midfield unit left us looking not really like being able to win the game and a draw was the best we would have ever got.

We can probably agree that the ref was sh1t as well, not helped by your players tendencies to fall over clutching their heads and legs at every opportunity which probably lost you a couple of genuine penalty shouts.

Not overly impressed with your back line despite them having a relatively easy task with our set up,  or your keeper and also up front you were relatively toothless i thought.

For large parts it was a game of two players...Demebele for us and your No.11....outside of those two the rest seemed pretty average. Hopefully we will have our best midfielders available soon and Slade will select more than one player with pace and guile







Well two games in and we have 0 conceded against two average teams in the league, I'll take that.

We will see how the next few games pan out and nobody in Coventry will be complacent, never.  Some very fair comments amongst your posters after the game, some complimentary and some not, standard tbh.  But yes I came on for some banter etc and in the main you have a good lot on here.

As for the McNulty goal, that type of situation will always raise debate etc but clearly it was a legit finish.

Grimsby will bring one of the larger followings to The Ricoh so hopefully we will see a good 15/16,000 crowd or more if we are still up there.

We've been upgraded to average. How generous of you.  

Thought Coventry were fairly average too compared to Pompey and Donny last season. Pompey fans were classy too.

So this original thread was why ticket sales have been stopped, are we just going to have it brushed under the carpet and forgotten about ( as I assume those in authority want) or eventually get an answer. Heaven knows what the powers that be would do if we happen to progress in the FA Cup and draw someone like Millwall, Leeds etc. We have a SLO, let them explain to us.

We've been to Wembley loads in the last few years, gets a bit boring after a while. 20,000 for home games? Only if your next rental property is located on fantasy island!

Too easy...bring your two bob following ah...

Enjoy your big season back cos the boy Slade will make sure you're not around for long.

Like how the fook can you even compare your club to ours, the cheap comments about our demise etc, that may be so but we still managed to beat the famous Grimsby Town on a shoestring ah....male masturbators

Time travel must be possible in Coventry.......

Cov1 started as a mature adult, but has now turned into a immature 13 year old.
