    London Wasps play Harlequins at the home of Coventry city.

    Anybody local prepared to get up there and tell them talks falling apart is unacceptable @CJ_covblaze ?

    Failing that take some superglue up on Friday and seal the turnstile gates.

    Voices required at the Ricoh.
    I'm in if organised.
    However we know that the trust will not do anything in relation to this.

    Need numbers in mass. It’ll never happen. The apathetic, resilient fan base doesn’t care.

    Here's an idea. How about you do it instead of waiting for somebody else to do something?

    From past experience we all know what happens then. The fans all splinter off into small groups arguing over who is to blame and you end up with a protest attended by a handful of people. It needs the trust, who are keen to keep reminding everyone they are the biggest fans group, to get this rolling and coordinate with other fans groups.

    Doing something is targeting all parties not constantly blaming 1 of them, what do you do then?

    Erm, because it would be far better if it was coordinated by our fans group. That is what they are supposed to do.

    The Liquid gold Way Trust Bristol/London/Coventry Jimmy HiIl Supporters Branch. Now that's a party I can get behind.

    Cant imagine we'll hear anything from the Trust until its too late once again. A 30min conference call tonight followed by an email to their database would be far too much hassle and it may help SISU/the club.

    It's targeted at CJ because of his position in the Sky Blue Trust, which as we know is the biggest Supporters Trust for Coventry City FC and has all the fans thoughts at heart.

    The fans will never win. Look how laid back the fan base is. “The Trust should do everything!” Demonstrations won’t ever get enough backing regardless of who organised it.

    My comment was more to the fact that people are calling out CJ who is one person expecting him to do everything.

    Because Paul from the Hen Lane organising a demo doesn’t have the contacts or logistics to organise things.

    The Fans Trust who are suppose to represent the fans, and ultimately the football club however can organise such protest/events - has the social media clout and contacts to arrange it on a large scale.

    So forgive us for looking towards to the trust to be out sorting this out

    It's a disgrace the way people go on at Theresa May trying her to get something done about Brexit. She's just a woman, what can she do?

    Well why don't us on this website arrange something? Everything is arranged online anyway, what's the difference?

    People only mention CJ because nobody else from the Trust bothers to interact. It isn't personal against him and I have said over and over it's pretty unfair he get's thrown under the bus like that.

    Your probably right. Everyone is too divided and entrenched in their views.

    I agree with you with the last bit. I feel like he's gets undue stick on here sometimes.

    Maybe the trust needs reforming or reorganising? We could have a prominent member of this website on the board or something? We are a big fans group after all...

    The fact that this is just being mentioned three days before the Wasps game shows how unorganised we all are.

    I'll shut up now.

    I dont think any of it is personal to him as CJ, more towards the trust but he is the only person to login to "try" to interact.

    More of them should bother!

    Working in Worcester on Saturday otherwise I would've picketed/leafleted (or similar) like I've done in the past.

    I've lost count of the amount of times I've tried to suggest there are four parties involved/at fault to people that have said there's only one.

    Sadly, they are your peers on the Trust Board who are pushing it as much as they can.

    The trust are constantly on the media bragging they are the voice of the fans and seem to have that cretin Johnson with them as some kind of enforcer

    The media will take statements from them not from Cov Kid from Tile Hill

    It’s well known that Hoffman had a deal agreed with wasps and certainly Johnson claimed to know the details

    The trust have for siding with chancers as they flatter them. The Haskell debacle was humiliating

    Yet here we are again.

    He seems to be the only one doing anything? The anti wasps message on the advertising boards at the ricoh?
