    And , let's face it , there are plenty ... If you could ask them why they hate CCFC , who would you ask ? for me , it would be Paddy Crerand . for some reason he used to slate anything to do with CCFC . I recall he got into a nasty altercation in the old Main Stand in Highfield Road . he was also on Sky Sports and said , what would CCFC know about playing decent football , or even their fans seeing decent football . nasty horrible fella .

    Wasn't there a newspaper article many years ago headed "What's the point of Coventry City"?

    I met Newbon at Brandon when I worked race nights at the Bees. Arrogant and self-important is how I would describe him.

    Yes. Many years ago, mid 80s I believe a load of Cov boys were in Whitley Bay in the North east, Portsmouth had been playing a north east side that weekend, so they also descended on the place. Long story short there was a big fight and one of Pompey's top boys got seriously hurt.
    Since then on at least 2 occasions t, there has been a load of crowd trouble at Highfield Road with Portsmouth fans. It's all to do with the above.

    There was trouble in 89 at Highfield Rd, after we'd beaten them and sent them down. And then around 2002 when it kicked off at half-time, bloody mental.

    Yes , was very bad in 2002 . it's a shame we bypassed each other this season as Fratton is only 80miles from me. I do like a day out at Pompey.

    You must win the prize for the most amount of time spent looking back over your shoulder Bob. You'll have just about caught up with 2017 by about 2049.

    Plenty off the CCFC fans who follow us on Twitter are hardly supportive.

    That was when he was trying to defend Cantona after he had launched a 2 footed tackle into the crowd.

    That was my lads first home game, we went into the bar area behind the West End at half time and didn't know anything about the trouble until we got home and saw it on Central TV.

    George Best disliked us and slagged us off for some reason. Something along the line of " what's the point of Cov City ? " Never found out why he said that !

    The reason was probably every time he played against us when Mick Coop always played him out of the game.
