    I was told by the ticket number that mine should work yesterday - that will be interesting then.

    Ha. I spoke to the nice lady at the CCFC ticket office (rather than ticket master) who clearly stated it won’t work (doesn’t mean she was right mind). Maybe tweet the club and ask them to clarify? I’m just hoping my tickets are there when I turn up...

    The Times says that Jobello Bartlett and Allessani are not available to us today - lazy journalists - not wrong but just irrelevant

    My sentiments but I don't think MR wulk make too many changes.
    He's played strong sides up to now and I think he'll do the same today.
    However my selection prediction have been about as accurate as a snide rolex from an Ibizian lucky man

    Mixed emotions on days like today when living abroad. Excited for the match but also gutted to not be there. Miss the match day build up a lot too.

    Best I can manage out here is a couple of hours before kick off I'll put beers at various places around the house leading up to my office/stadium, put my Cov shirt and scarf on, and wander from 'pub' to 'pub' drinking my beer and posting a couple of messages on here with my footy mates.
    If it's an away game, while I'm walking round the house I deliberately won't make eye contact with the wife and daughter if they aren't wearing sky blue, in case they try and start a fight with me but if it's a home game i'll throw my arms around their shoulders whenever I pass by and bang out an out of tune rendition of the sky blue song.
    I make sure the last beer in my office before kick off is always the most expensive and worst quality and then I'll queue for the toilet for far too long so I miss the kick off by 30 seconds.
    Next I'll spend 40 minutes muttering 'typical city' about everything while convincing myself that these standard football situations that are annoying me so much are somehow unique to Cov, while occasionally roaring 'FORWARD' at the tv!
    5 minutes before half time I'll go for another beer and wait by the fridge for 10 minutes and then wait in another queue at the toilet because my wife's in there doing a line, making me miss the 2nd half kick off by a few minutes again. By this time I'm so drunk I won't remember much of the 2nd half anyway and then when the match is over I'll pop on here to add some player ratings that are entirely made up of my own confirmation bias. All that is left to do then is to go outside and burn 100 quid to make the experience more authentic before getting an earful from the wife for being drunk at 7pm.

    Haha. I do think our depth is stronger than previous years.
    Don’t get me wrong I wouldn’t say no to winning today but if given the choice I’d choose Tuesday, and go for playing Brum in the league next season. Deep down I feel like they’ll bring us down to earth today, reality check.

    Got a good feeling about today. Let’s hope it’s good natured off the field irrespective of what happens on it and not spoiled by the handful of pubeless morons that will no doubt turn out by both sets of fans looking for trouble.

    I wonder if Blues will sing ‘shit ground, no fans’ to us?

    Buzzing for the game, realised this morning that it’s been over a month since my last home game (missed MK Dons). Has a real ‘big day’ feel to it.

    Definitely got a ‘big game’ feel to today.

    Train is way busier than usual.

    Promised the partner I’d be getting my usual train home straight after the game. Slightly worried I might end up breaking that promise.

    I still think the league is way more important, but going to fully embrace and enjoy today’s festivities.

    And, as per previous posts, I genuinely think we’ve got a strong chance today.

    Enjoy the day chaps!

    Pinched it from an almost identical CET article that I laughed at on here about a week or two ago?

    Think it will be a good game & we'll probably play the better football. Ultimately think they will be just too strong for us but hopeful never the less!

    Will be a great test for our players. Think it will be an electric atmosphere.

    I dunno. You may be right but confidence plays a part. We're full of it and they are struggling. I reckon a draw.

    No doubt Brum will fancy their chances more if they can take us back to their place for a replay
