    IF CCFC get to Wembley ... would you sacrifice your ticket [ If you've seen CCFC play there twice before ] Give your ticket up for our younger fans who've experienced nothing but failure ? surely they deserve a chance at Wembley ??

    Bollocks to that.

    Would rather renew my marriage vows to my wife.

    The young uns can wait til we are all dead and hope they get a bit of joy in the years to come.

    I'm going to predict this without fear or hesitation ... CCFC fans would fill that stadium on their own . so , the question still remains .

    So we hold the record for the semis, but you don't think we'd hold the record for the final?

    If they are so used to failure it won't hurt them that bad if they fail to get a ticket.

    30.000 to 40.000 invading Wembley would hopefully catch the attention of any
    Potential new owner that maybe waiting in the wings.

    Why do you feel as though you have to keep asking the same question?

    We have been through a lot. Anyone who wants to go should be able to without anyone having a go. And if I didn't go how do I know the ticket I would have bought would go to who you are going to say?

    And as this cup has never sold out there should be plenty for everyone.

    Not a chance, I feel guilty enough as it is saddling my 15 year old with a life of Sky Blue disappointment,
    least I can do is give him a weekend to remember (hopefully) in London.
    Mind you if it came down too it, I wouldn't even give my ticket up for him.:stop:

    I started supporting City in 1990 (didn't even like football before then), so I *am* one of the younguns who deserves a ticket.

    Agreed. But I 'm not going. Feeder club for Burton Albion. Brighton u23s. Setting that aside I think 15k city fans is more likely given the crap value of the competition and that the Northampton exodus really hit home with the people of Coventry and Warwickshire. Never to be forgotten with this ownership.

    I think the majority of SISU haters will put the 'SISU out' on hold for one game. The 8-10k regulars will mostly go, the 'day outers' will turn out in droves, There will be a handful of conscientious objectors, but little more than that. Think we would sell nearer 50k than 15k

    The FA Cup this is not.

    Hope you are right, there is a very strong case to use this as a message to prospective buyers. Rather see 30k at the Ricoh next round. 2k attendance and then a full house to demonstrate that the ppl of Coventry still want a club. Then back to the usual league attendances.

    We would take 40,000 to Wembley.

    Perfect place to hold a protest.

    Surely it depends on who we play and how many they bring? IIRC because of the large corporate sections teams tend to only get allocated 28k tickets, could be wrong.

    Edit. Quick google and its about 31k

    Haven't been all season due to the mess the clubs in but if they get to Wembley, I'm there. And I couldn't give a shite how that makes me look as a fan. Been a ST for many years previously so I've done my time to deserve a final!

    hold on everyone there is the banana skin of getting there, we have a very good record of f**king things up as soon as the crowds start filling the ground, I think we should leave this until we get there, then panic about tickets.

    Anyone who attends or even thinks of attending this game IF Coventry get to the final should hang their heads in shame.

    This tournament epitomises many of the things so wrong with modern football.
