    Me neither. I keep an eyes on the scores but interest level is vastly diminished . Not looked at any goals on internet either. I would attend a local away game to where I live but certainly not going to so called 'home' game'. Just not interested and its not right. I Know your right not ccfc related , these other people with opinions need to be challenged

    People can post what they want, and I'm free to comment on that content.
    It's a simple premise.

    I've been 3 times now (Southend, Gillingham and Wimbledon), I don't enjoy one bit that we are playing in birmingham, but as others have said, it is about supporting the manager and the team.

    I didn't go to Northampton as many didn't, and it killed me to not go. It hurts going st Andrew's but once that whistle blows it's about singing 'Play Up Skyblues' and getting behind the team.

    Tuesday was incredible to score that late on, and a really good atmosphere too.

    I found it hard to break my moral feelings about going to see us at home outside Coventry, but the pain not supporting my team far out weighs the pain and frustration that we are in brum. I hope we return asap to Coventry but I've been 3 times now and can't wait to go again...not to birmingham, but to support Mark Robin's and this great team he has assembled.

    I don’t get the moral crap, it’s not euthanasia its watching a football team.

    If the club gets kicked out of their stadium because of unreasonable terms what do you expect them to do? Fold? Get kicked out?

    What do you realistically want from the situation

    Unreasonable terms as decided by whom? The courts have all agreed against SISU.

    I think he's referring to wasps wanting sisu to indemnify them against any costs that arise from the EC complaint against CCC.
    As you state, several courts have found against sisu so why are wasps obstructing our return, it's just another sisu wild goose chase isn't it?

    Just think people want genuine plans or targets from management or shareholders of the club. As much as I want Wasps to have major problems with EC, I can’t support a move to Brum to wait for that, which is what I suspect is going on.

    However, if a site was agreed and work was started, which tbh I think has a likelihood of 0%, you’d possibly see me at SA. I was worked up at the start about this whole moral thing, not anymore. But people go, enjoy it, great. I just don’t fancy it. Encouragement is fine but I’ve made my choice, and I’ll stick to it. I can confidently say I won’t jump on any bandwagons, but I will be at away games. Thing is the Sixfields season blunted some of my passion for City, I still had my ST’s afterwards, but I think for that reason is why I don’t feel the pain of missing it. I still want us to do well, I don’t want us to lose out of spite for fans who go.

    You do realise that the courts have nothing to do with it, right?

    Are Wasps getting twitchy over their tickets sales? Is that why these accounts are crawling out of the woodwork now?

    Just out of interest, you’re obviously a big fan, is it just circumstance that stops you from going to St Andrews?

    circumstance yes as in saturday early evenings i have a responsibility in city centre(pm me if want to know) but also thats not something i cannot reschedule sometimes if i have plans.

    the biggest reason other than being in cov on sat evenings is that no real need for me to travel to brum, i am desperate to watch coventry city play and i scratch that itch every single game via ifollow(which i pay for)

    match experience i wanna try it out at brum and will go soon but i said even when at ricoh i am not bothered about drinking alcohol and socialising with mates or singing etc, i just want to watch the game and thats what i do every week. when at ricoh i went to 12-15 games every season with match packaages, i am not gonna pretend watching on tv beats being there but now its about added time issues and expense to go further so yeah i am gonna cut back on the games i go to. as long as i am watching us play i will be ok.

    more power to those that do go and hate watching on the tv etc, everyones different. im not having a dig just being honest.

    hope that answers your question.
