    that the City ceased to exist, who would/could you switch your support to, even if it felt wrong and dirty, and you could face yourself in the mirror?? I think it would be Wolves for me, they're playing some nice footy just now, nearly as slick as us, getting some good results.
    I live about 5 miles from the King Power as the crow flies, but there is no way I could entertain stepping foot in there except as an away fan, same goes for the claret and blue shithole just off the M6. (can't even bring myself to type the name).

    I'm bored on a Friday afternoon waiting for tomorrow.

    I'd probably be done with football, certainly wouldn't switch to another team.

    I'm increasingly disinterested in England games and the Premier League is rapidly losing its appeal as a spectacle. Just the same few teams going for the title every year unless someone comes in and spends a fortune. They're spending all that money but its not resulting in a generally exciting product to watch.

    Absolutely nobody, unless there was an AFC Coventry emerged from the wreckage that had some sort of tangible link in some way to CCFC.....no, that wouldn't happen would it ?.

    No other football team apart form England, here - Hellas Verona from afar, and any rugby team playing against Wasps.

    Probably the Villa or Leicester, depending on who's doing the best in the league at the time.

    I don’t even think I could support whoever played wasps. The hatred would be too much to handle

    I was talking about this with my girlfriend the other day. I came to the conclusion that I couldn't support anyone else. There are other teams I like and I enjoy watching all football, but I don't have any passion or care for any other team and wouldn't be able to get that again if Cov folded. I'd keep following Leamington FC as much as I do now but they wouldn't be able to fill the shoes.

    Wouldn’t support any other team. I live about a mile and half from Leicester’s ground so I might occasionally go and watch a game there...but support them...Never!!
    Most likely go and watch games on the local parks on Saturday or Sunday.

    No one probably. If I needed a fix of football, I'd probably go for local non-league so Havant & Waterlooville.

    No club could ever replace Cov though.

    I have several clubs which for interests sake and for assorted reasons I keep tabs on hoping they do well. It is two tiers down from "support" as such - Alloa Athletic, Hibernian, Sheffield Wednesday and MKDons. I'd just carry on doing that.

    I would never support another team other than City.

    If the situation was that you were just getting into football now who would you go for it'd be Bristol City, not far from me, well run and on the up.

    I think if you emigrate or something and there is a local team there that could never have been in competition with Cov then you can 'support' them, but it would never be on the same level.

    Depends on your individual circumstances.

    Me personally, born in Glasgow into a Celtic daft family. My Da would take me to Celtic games as a boy. Could see Celtic Park from my street.

    Moved to England aged 11, someone later took me to HR and I just kept going back.

    52 now, must be over 800 City games and going to Rochdale tomorrow.

    Do 2 or 3 Celtic games a season.

    Love both teams.

    I’d lose about 3 stone. I’d be out on my bike every Saturday afternoon and could Never support another team.

    Yeah I would argue that’s different. Teams are not in the same country and you were influenced as a child rather than now

    I lived in Brussels for 2 years 2000-2 & used to go & watch RWDM home & away with a Belgian friend. I liked going and watching them especially the 2nd season when they put a really good run together to get in top half of their PL but it was never the same & if we were playing on same day I always wanted to get back to the car for our result on radio 5. They were relegated 2 divisions at the end of the season for financial irregularities, not paid tax bill I think.

    Red Bull Coventry. But really just England.

    Wolves for fuck sake. As my dad would sing.

    “Wolves wolves and wolves and wolves and wolves wolves and wolves and wolves and wolves wolves and wolves and wolves, we all fucking hate wolves. And leicesteeeeeeeeer”

    Cov Rugby.
    The way football and in particular the premier league is going, I'm losing a lot of interest in football. I love CCFC and most of my daily life revolves around planning match days out and looking at twitter/SBT for news and stories, but past my love for CCFC I can take or leave football. Even if not, I couldn't support another team. Not like I do, with the love and passion i give to CCFC. So for me, it would be a) pro Cov team and b) in supporting/helping cov rugby, I'd be anti w**ps too so it would be a double bubble for why i would support cov rugby
