    http://planning.coventry.gov.uk/portal/servlets/AttachmentShowServlet?ImageName=1527660 @shmmeee can you fit a Championship sized football ground on here? Might need some more of the Sphinx land, but surely enough will still remain to leave them a decent pitch etc. Just something to discuss...

    Features – Bands F.C. Some decent badges here, I couldn't wear a badge that looked like another teams crest, but I do like the design of the Pulp and Charlatans badges.

    Certain players frailties were exposed today - Mowbray

    “It was educational for me because games like this expose the frailties of certain individuals. It asks questions and it was quite raw to see the ones who wanted to play and do what we do and the ones who find it difficult on that pitch". He mentioned this about three times in the radio...

    SCG Minutes from 5th March meeting

    http://mobile.ccfc.co.uk/news/article/scg-minutes-march-coventry-city-league-one-2353631.aspx Not the most thrilling or contentious read, but I'm sure there's something we can argue about.

    Which City manager did (or is doing) the best job with the worst squad?

    There's not enough arguing on the other thread, so try this one. This is the worst squad I can remember, and therefore the best manager is Pressley.

    Which is the best team goal ever?

    When people argue about the best team goal ever, it's usually these two that it comes down to. They are very similar in many ways, but the second one has less showboating and is scored from further out, so that gets my vote. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5HbmeNKino...

    Best opposition player you've seen

    Seeing Gianfranco Zola on TV tonight reminded me of a game at Highfield Rd where he showed what a wonderful player he was. I think it was the Cup game in 2001, we lost 2.0 and when he was substituted late on in the game he was given well deserved applause from the City fans. Not only was...

    Costs per game

    In the main the club has 23 income generating events. A lot has been said of possible rent/service charges on a per game basis. I think splitting costs over the income generating units can give a good reflection of the position we are in. So, per (home) game the costs were, for 12/13...

    Bloody foreigners

    We used to sign plenty of foreign players, in my time of watching since 85 many have come and gone (mainly from 90's onwards). I looked through a list of our players today and many I had forgotten. I hope someone was getting some sneaky cash out of these deals otherwise they make little sense...

    Nick's NOPM £10 charity bet

    Before the Arsenal game Nick kindly suggested a £10 charity bet, this was to prove whether he was correct in stating that as soon as we get popular opponents NOPM goes out of the window. If you are someone who was vocal in their support of NOPM, but did then go to the Arsenal game, please be...
