    It's sky blue ribbons. CJ put some better photos on Twitter. I like it. Subtle and with an obvious message

    I don't live in the City, but to cover public areas with sky blue ribbon would be a great visual sight and no doubt bring the media in to follow up (again!). As said above, subtle but effective.

    Can see the thinking of making things Sky Blue! Fair play LAST and others :)

    It's pro CCFC!

    I like this, you'd see them everywhere when it was done before.

    It is Right outside the main Entrance to the new council house it reads city of sport. Ricoh arena home of Coventry City and Wasps.
    That in itself gives me another idea?

    Does it include covering one up?

    Boddy seems to be making the correct noises, to try and convince everyone it's not the clubs fault they may be turfed out. I know you've got no insider infor OSB but worse comes to the worse, do you think the EFL would allow us to play outside the city, rather than fold? I'm wondering how on board the fans might be this time, should this happen again.

    Great that ribbons have been placed outside the Council House to remind them about CCFC.... however, I think it is Wasps that need the reminder that the people of Coventry care. (How are they getting such an easy ride out of this!!??) Get some ribbons up at the Ricoh on the wasps signs... or even better, some sky blue paint!... make them work to get rid of them.
    Said on a previous post that these fans groups need to put some focus on Wasps potentially squeezing us out of Coventry (and possibly existence!!)
    Yes, that read WASPS POTENTIALLY SQUEEZING US OUT OF COVENTRY AND OUT OF EXISTENCE!!!

    I find it hard to believe they would not let CCFC do that. Probably not their first choice but i dont see them stopping CCFC doing that especially when the EFL member can point to the 3rd party landlord refusing to talk

    Don’t see how they’d have any other option. Say no and you can be certain SISU will have them up in court for one reason or another.

    precisely ...... the EFL do not have a reputation for dealing with problems, they usually adopt the path of least resistance

    We could always lockdown roads at other EFL events to put pressure on them. An exclusion zone of 1 mile from a stadium in fact we'd probably get more coverage to do it at a big PL game or cup final. Gridlock all routes approx. 1hour before a game. Possibly worth trying for a W*sps game too.

    *I'm aware EPL is different to EFL too, but would get much greater publicity and coverage. Less sympathy from other clubs I imagine, but most of the big teams couldn't care less about us anyhow and only view their elite theatre hyperbole.
