    If by some twist of fate. City win this cup. Will they do a cup winners parade of trophy. Being a relegation year and all that shit. Would that be taking the piss?
    The jollys might want to continue their party?!?!?! Only asking.

    Parade for a Tin Pot Trophy? Seems odd.

    Well it could be if we actually win the game. Highly unlikely if you can't score.

    No, i hope not, all said and done following relegation to the bottom tier of English football a parade for winning a tin pot cup would be embarrassing, seriously, just no!!!

    Won't happen surely, in the same way I hope the club don't do an end of season player of the year!

    We were talking about this the other day, if these lot suddenly played really well and won. Would you feel cheated and slightly pissed off that they have turned up for the final and not the rest of the season?

    In 87 it was amazing during the parade. A day you could never forget. I would love to experience similar again.

    But for the tin pot cup when getting relegated to Division 4? It would be a fookin embarrassment even without the relegation.

    Maybe a bit extreme but would they make the march with their fitness levels?

    I'd find a bus parade far less embarrassing than CovBurty's obsession, particularly when he's been to about five home games and hasn't got a leg to stand on when screaming about the 'jollies'

    I honestly think , Joy n' Timmy would have the gall to do this . can just see her now at the front of the bus like Joan of arc and Timmy beside her Phil Neal style - yes boss , yes boss

    Do you really think SISU are going to fund a bus tour?

    I felt this way during the earlier games, odd that we managed to win Cup games but no cup bounce when playing the league games. So yes I do feel cheated.

    Another reason why I can't go. It would be wrong of me to call 'the jollys' when I joined them surely. At least I go to some games. These jollys haven't been for years. Last season only missed about 3/4games. Less jollys last season.

    I would say if we were to win they should do a victory parade, but one with a twist.

    Send a bus round with a load of fans on, including some of the kids from Walsgrave Hospital and other CCFC fans that might be ill or have disabilities. The players can walk round and clap them with the rest of the fans.

    I don't think the players themselves deserve their own victory parade, but I don't think we will win anyway.

    Interesting idea.
    But City may win this game. That's the point. A bit of luck on the day. We got to final riding our luck.

    It's wrong of you to slag anyone off for going when you're as part-time as anyone else now.

    I'm not snagging off the jollys. Or anyone for going to Wembley. Go ahead and enjoy the day. Your choice. I've been a part-timer on and off since my dad took me up in '68. Some years season tickets, some years a few games. Sorry to repeat again, I have been berated, so my comment. Just can't reward a team with my presence when they relegated us. You all go-ahead, fans deserve a jolly out to Wembley. I'm doing other things. Have fun.

    Thanks for the replies. Some a bit rude. Some interesting, most I agree with. How can the City have a parade if they win this trophy? Not many would turn up. Yes, taking the piss and where would they parade around. It's not an FA Cup. I don't think it would happen. It's a one off, day thing.
    Cheers.

    Cant ever visualise me being at Ball Hill again clapping home a team that 'performed' in 6 games but not the other 46 that mattered.
    To be honest I think the team would be too embarrassed to do it anyway.

    tbh i would piss myself if the club decided to parade that pathetic trophy around the city on the open top bus the one in the museum if we did win it,which i believe we won't anyway,especially with relegation and the shit season we have had,with sisu though, they would bang on about here is the success you have all craved,don't say we don't deliver trophy's

    Knowing our fucking council, it will probably be a joint winners parade with Wasps

    Of course you are, that's been pretty much all you've been on about since signing up, that and shouting SHIT CUP.

    I wouldn't open the curtains if they passing my house. Not a chance imo but if they did, surely nobody would go.

    Perhaps, but the smell would be horrendous.

    I would hope they all had a wash before boarding the bus to be honest.

    Ive not called it a shit cup for this thread. And qualified my argument by stating you makes your choice. If some peeps want a day out so be it. Simps.
