    I think we know the answer already. If we need a point and it's the last home game of the season there will be far far more there than normal. The novelty factor gets people attending.

    Yes there will, but 30,000ish, no . If we get towards 20,000 including away supporters that would be some achievement.

    I never went to Northampton other than the hill. But have been to St Andrews.

    But if it does go to the wire and the ground is full how can you prove it is the political stay aways turning up?
    I have been to many football games as a nuetral. The games I have been to at St Andrews have not been the highest attended so the growth pool doesnt depend on me and the wife. Just because the average is say 6,000 it doesnt mean it is the same 6,000 every week. There is always a large floating pool of sports fans due to other commitments - shift work being a big one.

    I did not go to our last two Wembley appesrances for example. It didnt mean I didnt care or did not want us to win.

    I mean how loyal are you? I have watched Coventry Reserves away at Oldham on a Wednesday night.

    The reality is I have seen loads of games and missed loads of games for all sorts of reasons - just like you.

    When it comes down to the the wire a whole bank of fans will make the extra effort - just like you!

    unsurprisingly, there does seem to be a surge of interest, it is a possibility that the kop stand could be full to capacity on tuesday, if that happens on the evening of the game does the club have the capacity to open a block in the tilton? it would be rather disappointing if those wanting paying on the gate could not access the stadium.

    Do we honestly give a shit who goes or doesn’t?
    I don’t - more fool those for missing this great team in action but quite frankly I don’t give a toss!
    I go because I want to watch Coventry City and that’s that - simple really.
    I’m sure we don’t need all these will you won’t you threads - it’s stupid to be fighting amongst ourselves!
    Just support the Sky Blues in body or spirit at St Andrews or on ifollow or on CWR or away from home only - as long as you’re supporting the lads that’s all that matters surely?

    Personal choice, always has been always will be!

    My choice (why cut off your nose to spite your face) I’ve missed one home league game due to a holiday but still watched it.
    Not in a position to attend as many away games but Saturday was my fifth of the season. That doesn’t make me any better or any worse than any other supporter.

    The enjoyment this season I’ve had was unthinkable at the start of the season, not only the results but more importantly the style and overall performances. This is already a very special and memorable season and I’m totally behind Mark Robins and his hard working and dedicated staff and of course the AMAZING SQUAD.

    Long may it continue PUSB

    The irony for me is there is a section of fans who moan about fans not attending and then when they do they moan they are glory hunters.
