I wrote a quiz for Jackie Magazine on how much you like Coventry City. Unfortunately, it seems that Jackie magazine no longer exists... so I tried Cosmopolitan and they told me to come back when I had something more sexy. The editor also said that my quiz was shit but I think she was joking.


So, rather than waste my quiz I’m posting it here for you all to enjoy. Let me know your score so we can find the Coventry City Superfan of the year!


1 How much do you like Coventry City?
  • They are OK.
  • I quite like them.
  • They are nice.
  • They are really smashing.

2 It’s Saturday afternoon but Coventry City don’t have a game. What do you do?
  • Go and see your guy on a date, it’s no big deal.
  • Sit in your bedroom listening to Donny Osmond records to cheer yourself up.
  • Go and watch the local rugger team instead – hoorah for Wasps!
  • Become all miserable like Morrissey.

3 Coventry City are losing a football game by a goal to nil and your favourite player comes on as a substitute. He’s really dishy. He gets into a great goalscoring position close to you. What do you do?
  • Hide your face in your hands so you don’t distract him. Coventry City comes first!
  • Flash him a smile in the hope that he notices you as he scores. A hot date may come from this!
  • Write your telephone number onto a piece of card and try to distract him.
  • Do nothing. This is Coventry City, he’ll probably miss anyway.

4 It’s the summer hols and you go camping with your guy. He invites you to play football with his mates. What do you do?
  • Baggsie being Leigh Jenkinson and score lots of goals.
  • Say yes but then lounge around in the centre like Keith O’Neill.
  • Refuse unless you get a ‘ten bags’ transfer to Aston Villa.
  • Refuse to play – you might break a nail!

5 The new season is approaching but then a fella you’ve fancied for ages asks you on a hot date. What do you do?
  • Tell him to fuck off. Coventry City comes first!
  • Go on the date but listen to Stuart Linnell and Dave Bennett murdering the English language on the radio.
  • Say yes and spend 10 hours getting ready.
  • Say yes and invite him to the game – two birds with one stone!

6 Coventry City’s hot new striker has moved into a house near yours. How do you attract his attention?
  • Don’t bother, he’s not as hunky as the goalie.
  • Hang around outside his front door until he gets a restraining order.
  • Get drunk and accost him in the pub. Only to find out later that you got the wrong fella and the guy you snogged works down the Recycling Centre.
  • Ignore him: you are saving yourself for David Cassidy.

7 You get an invitation to be a cheerleader for Coventry City. What do you say?
  • Absolutely! And you wear a micro mini skirt to capture the players’ attention.
  • I have to check what I’m doing that day – I think I may be listening to pop music on my tranny.
  • Say yes – but only because you can go and watch the game for free.
  • Say no because you don’t want to miss the pre-match excitement from the stands

8 Coventry City Council asks you to become mayor; however it’s a condition of the job that you smoke 40 fags a day and hate Coventry City. On the other hand, it pays very well. What do you do?
  • Take the job. Who gives a shit about the voters?
  • Refuse the job – not only because you like Coventry City but also because you are a socialist and don’t believe in earning lots of money for doing next to nothing apart from opening new ‘World of Sofa’ shops.
  • Take the job because you really like fags – especially Embassy Number 1.
  • Take the council to the European Court of Human Rights.

9 Another fantastic Coventry City fan friend of yours, Tony, starts arguing with you about what it’s like to be a teenage girl, even though he’s a 45 year old panel beater with a hairy arse. What happens?
  • You ignore him because he’s talking shite again.
  • You make the mistake of replying and he never shuts up about all the teenage girl expertise he has.
  • You distract him by telling him how lovely Coventry City is.
  • Accept what he says because you don’t want to upset him.

10 Coventry City decides to play the next season in the Dutch League at Ajax’s home ground, in a cunning plan to bankrupt every charity shop in the centre. What do you do?
  • Faithfully attend every game to cheer on the team.
  • Go and watch, but try and find a hill so you can watch the game for free (good luck with that in Holland).
  • Not one Eurocent more!
  • Moan about it on the internet but it makes no difference because you never attend games anyway.

If I joined the cheerleaders and wore a micro mini-skirt I would get more than just the players attention, considering I'm a close fit to the description of Tony in number 9!

The best of Trench!!

You could always try these.

Nah... I only occasionally think of something that I think is funny - and from the responses many others don't agree. That's fine - don't want to turn into a David Brent type person who has zero self-knowledge or self-depreciation. :)

South Leics...unfortunately
This got me Chuckling in bed next to the other half. I can tell you now...it lost a lot of comedy value trying to explain this to a 53 year old senior Executive of a fashion brand. ...... completely wasted on him 😂😂

I do love reading this forum. Only sunderland betters it sometimes, dillusional monkey hangers hehe ( i was married to a thing form easington colliery .... and that is Sunder....land) I dont post much at all, but recent events get my goat as they do all CCFC fans.
Forgive me for this, but my ole fella was not a sporting type. when i grew up i lived in Hillfields and could hear the oohs an ahhs form Highfield Road in my garden.

My first game was Wolves in the old first division, i always thought it was 1 each but the records say we won 1-0. Hooked Since.
I dont go so much now, events bore me, but the love is still there. yes i did wembley 87 and the recent trips, all very enjoyable.

The texaco cup and anglo scottish? Trakia plovdiv in europe at home, didnt do bayern at home my pocket money or newspaper round didnt extend to that. Away trips , many. I lived in Great Yarmouth for a while ( 9 years) and Norwich was always a good day, sat in the home end.

As you can guess i am an oldie now (61) Cov City through, no other team , i would rather give it up although maybe i have or not?

This current stuff with Mr (return ) Robins, one b or two? It ignites old feelings.

The low times when relgation form the top flight hurt us all, the relegations since even more. You know what we are showing signs of getting back to somewhere, the promised land of mega bucks or a level of which can enjoy? Who cares? its our team, our colours , our club and for some their life.

Gran Canaria a good while ago, i wore green and black stripes (pony) " hey Cov, came from a Swede, come in here" I was wrecked that night! the djay was from Courthouse Green i had more than a fare share of buy one get on free with the added shots. I think they were happy to have something other than Manure, up your arse, and the like.

Footbal needs ups and downs, its the nature of it.

Whatever happens over the next few years lets enjoy it, show the everyone how good and bad we can be, more good please

If finances allow i will buy a season ticket to support CCFC regardles of if i go or not. thats this year, i suppose at best given it may be i follow and some merch.

A city the size of Cov needs better from us all, 9 or 10 in England puts us where? yes exactly! Have a think kids and your own and how you encouridge ( spelling) them.

PUSB
