Thread: Coventry

  1. Default Coventry

    Glad to see that, after all the problems they are having with SISU Coventry supporters will enjoy a day out at Wembley for the Checkatrade Trophy.

    I guess there will be a decent turnout of their fans but would be surprised if they got near our 51k+ figure

    There were only 11,000 at the Ricoh for their semi final game v Wycombe but that is understandable bearing in mind the crap hand Coventry supporters have had to face in recent times.

    I went to the Ricoh in our promotion season when they were hopeless. We won 4-2 and the ground couldn't have been more than 1/3 full (including a decent Saints turnout). When De Ridder scored the 4th the home end pretty much emptied.

    Delighted for them. Had friends at the game last night, as beacons in the darkness go it's not dissimilar to Luton a few years ago.

    Got a mate who is a Cov fan, he actually took me to the Ricoh while it was being built, and look how things have panned out since - really feel for them all. It could have been us as well, think we were very lucky SISU never got their claws into us.

    Hope they win it and the Cov fans have a great day out - after all of the shyte they have taken, they deserve much, much better.
