No offence but I’m pretty sure he’ll notice.
How is it having principles not wanting to travel 20 miles? What’s the principle there?
Going to take a flyer here, but I’d suggest
It not being in Coventry ?
Surely the main principle is keeping Coventry in business.
I’d suggest the poster could replace principle with laziness or apathy.
Not sure it matters what it’s called.
Maybe Same reason all locals don’t go to away games, laziness ?.
Keeping Coventry in business, in Birmingham ?
I will go when I can, so just playing devils advocate
Yes, that is where we’re playing now. The aim is to keep Coventry going until we can get back (I’m keeping positive we’ll get back).
Our away attendances are pretty good, no problem there. So it can only be some perceived moral high ground they’re taking... or laziness.
Playing at the Ricoh for the last 5 years has been painful (I haven’t been able to go much). Wasps advertising and badges everywhere. The grounds not ours. I felt completely demoralised every time I got there.
Very happy to hear, Chris/Christ/Christo/

A lot to celebrate. Hope you now go on to live a rich and wonderful life.
If the people spent as much time supporting the club as much as they do making excuses for not coming we would be a lot more successful than we are now.
Just think if their was billionaires out there looking to buy a team would they choose one with 11 to 12,000 fans at home games or some team with fans in excess of 20k watching the team they allegedly support? We have a great away following but it could be soooo much better rather than bleat about such things as nopm until Sisu have gone then I am not going to St Andrews make a sacrifice for the team you allegedly support and go for the short time hopefully leading to an upturn in fortunes then you can genuinely say ..."you made a difference"
and what a great way to spend more time talking about CCFC.
For those who are really asking how they tell there kids, I just hope this is the worst thing you ever have to tell them in their lives, but I expect it wont be.
Hundreds of people are making excuses. Thousands arent bothered, thats the bigger issue
Yeah, agree with this Dave.
Never mind the Trust or that nob from Jimmy Hills Wayward going on about boycotting, they should be getting behind the club to find an answer. IF the council are dragging their feet or putting up barriers, they should be called out. And I include CWR and the Telegraph in pushing them to answer.
EFL should be transparent too. They've allowed this, but under what conditions? I presume they've been told CCFC will retrun to Coventry .... well how the hell is that supposed to happen given the current stalemate.
IF its a case of its all bluster re "new stadium" and I expect it is, the council should be perfectly able to tell us thev'e received no reasonable requests. I don't know why the local media are either pushing their own agendas or are too shit scared to get down and dirty and find out what's going on, for some reason. I'd suggest inviting all to an open broadcast...those that refuse to attend obviously have something to hide.
I won't go to Birmingham but i'll go to a few away games.
Apart from 32,000 Sky Blue Seats that have SKY BLUES and CCFC written on them, yeah really felt like Wasps stadium...
Not sure I understand either. Wouldn’t that be like putting up 4 or 5 City badges on St Andrews and saying it felt like ours.
Just think people are scraping the shit barrel to find insignificant ‘positives’ in this massive embarrassing sorry disaster.
From when it was built in 2005!
So, tell me, how is it our stadium?!
I’m not scraping anything. Club shop, signs everywhere you look... it’s not our stadium!
Not sure anybody is gonna feel more at home at St Andrews... a lot less in fact.
At least you will have Spice Girls to remember at the Ricoh for the rest of your life.
Decent gig as well.
Did I say we would?
Sounds like you need to go and comfort your kid anyway.
the principle of having to travel to another football club’s ground to watch your team play at home.
I’ve no idea what that means, but okay.
One of the more memorable visits to the Ricoh.
You’ve obviously been to some shit gigs in your time.
Plenty of time for other gigs though, yeah?
What are you on about, they’ve been completely respectful and haven’t plastered their logo everywhere. You’d hardly notice they’d moved in.
If the people who arent going to St.Andrews go spend a couple of Saturday afternoons protesting in big numbers at a wasps game they'll do a u turn quick sharp.
Lets hope so
Shame they never moved us to Scotland you could really bond with then LOL
If we go belly up it will be anything but the fans fault.

For any of those that do wonder this, why don't they take them up the Higgs for U23/U18 games every now and then? It's not quite the same but they're still supporting Coventry City. In some ways it's more exciting because you're much closer to the pitch and the players. And it's cheaper
Take a kid to a panto and they don't care it's a provincial rep group and not a West End line-up.
That idea that you can determine principles based on who does or doesn't go to the football is a bit simplistic.
Thin ice? Shit has hit the fan? You're wasted on here, get on Twitter.
