Discussion in 'Coventry City General Chat' started by Lofty, Jan 7, 2014.
The protest could be more effective, especially if anyone is in office on a Friday afternoon.
Have emailed them complaining and asking for their reason.
If everyone sent them an email asking for their reason they may reconsider. Why cant they swap it for the Sat evening game (Stevenage vs Everton)?
London Midland takes 1hr 40 mins. 3pm Cov-Euston £6. 4pm train for £8.50. 5pm train £15, but might be tight on time especially if delayed. Virgin trains are quicker but stupid money really (£45 single).
My advice is if you planning on using the trains, book up quick before either the seats are sold or the prices rocket up. PUSB!
It's obvious that both clubs wanted the Friday game to maximise rest for the following games. Cov play Orient on Tuesday, Arsenal play Southampton on Tuesday.
It's more that I imagine most (like me) will be pushed to get from Cov to Emirates after work on Friday, let alone fit in a protest beforehand. I agree though, the whole thing makes more sense if someone's in. I just wanted 4,000 Cov fans bringing London to it's knees! mwahahaha!
At least the Emirates isn't far from the bottom end of the M1, much more accessible than Wimbledon.
fuck it ,ive got me radio
Everton have got the Merseyside Derby on the Tuesday. I really don't think the clubs had the final decision.
Well Friday night has screwed my original plans up! Gonna have to see about work etc. now.
What has Everton V Liverpool got to do with this... i'm confused
and literally no where to park anywhere near the ground
What I'm trying to say is other clubs have also got to prepare for the games midweek.
I mentioned Everton because they play the BT sport tie on the Sat evening. That's why I was wondering why that game is on the Sat and ours is on the Friday. Surely if BT sport swapped it everyone would be happy. Stevenage would sell out whatever day and time they play against Everton.
Apologies if I didnt say it in my original post
They are not going to cancel the game if a few people email. Get real.
While you are at it can you ask the Queen to lend me a tenner?
About as real as all the fans emailing the Football League as to moving Coventry out of Northampton.
Did people get real then? It's a long shot, better than nothing at all.
Thanks...I am with you now. I guess bottom line ITV wanted the Chelsea game (I am guessing they got first choice) and BT chose us...tbh I'd prefer Friday over Sunday, but each to their own I guess....
ha ha best post ever.. are you deluded..i hope your email was strongly worded
personally im happy enough to have it on tv friday night saturday night or sunday afternoon. i wasnt going anyway, NOPM PUSB
I asked for their reason as to why they picked the game for that time.
It is a long shot but its better than moaning on here about it.
but you are moaning about it on here...
I know I am, so I am emailing them too... that's better than just moaning.
I've sent a counter email as I want it to be on Friday.
Chill lads, not the end of the world being on a Friday.
When we went Old Trafford few years ago for league cup that was a night game.
I've emailed them to see if they can do a re-draw because top of premier league vs mid-table league 1 seems a tad unfair.
Not ideal being a Friday but matches these days are all over the place.
When we won at Old Trafford in the Carling Cup that was a Tuesday night so that may be a good omen ?
Even if it was a Monday morning you can bet the Sky Blue Army would turn up in their numbers !
Over the moon. My NOPM is still going strong and I get to see the game #chuffed.
It's fine for anyone who can book time off work and go early on the Friday but totally shit for me! Might just make kick off....
Good luck with that one!
That's right, BT sport not paying sisu a penny more than 144 grand to show it.... NOPM is dead. Just say NOPE to Sixfields (not one penny ever) and everyone stay calm....
Yeah I went to that, fan-tastic evening. Took a half day off to get up there and the next day to recover/ get home. Does anyone know of anywhere that has a list of places that have BTSport in London?
thanks Brian. Disappointed I didn't get a LOL though.
I am glad its a Friday but sorry for you guys who were geared up fo a good weekend etc
I can watch it and I won't give sisu a penny, no 40% from me
Been looking on Booking.com and laterooms.com , plus trying to plan tube travel to the potential hotel.
So far it's a disaster.
Want to go as these chances don't come round very often , plus went last time and it was amazing.
Really pissed off.
Thought I had cracked it when the CCFC website put the fixtures up this afternoon and the Arsenal game was 3.00 p.m. Saturday. So I booked a few tickets cheap on the train. What a balls up friends and family text and phone that it's now on Friday night. Bull chips. Now I have to rebook or sort a minibus out . But half the crew who were going now cannot get time off or have other plans . I will be there but at a cost . PUSB
One for the historians
If not cov, Ever?
There are two cup finals at the Ricoh Arena this week; the first of which is this evening when Woodlands FC take on Chelmsley Town...
Hope one and all have made it through the week safely
20 bottles of bud for a tenner in asda
8 bottles of peroni in the fridge and second series of Dexter to watch
Much love to you all
