Talk about it in here
Just bought my 5 and we've already sold 7000 before the walk up
Been and got my 2
Bloody hell, fair turnout this.
I'd predicted no more than 7 000, so it looks like it will exceed my expectations.
Do we know which turnstiles will be open?
I felt #1 priority was to get more than at Northampton, not much of a contest there. To get more than the capacity of Northampton would be fantastic.
Also, once you factor in people who would have gone but can't for whatever reason, or those who won't go to this but would have gone to watch CCFC had we been at the Ricoh today, there's a large number of people that the club have successfully managed to alienate.
i'm going 3-2
Huckerby, Paul hall and Marcus Hall
St John ambulance are there,
there just waiting for dietmar bruck
Sky sports news feature but in a pub so can't hear it
Any news on the other team?
For the Midlands All Star XI the following players are currently slated amongst those set to appear:-
From Wolves FPA -Mel Eves (player-manager) plus Lee Naylor ; Jon Purdie and Tony Dinning; from Aston Villa FPA - Derek Dudley; Ian King; Des Little; David Norton and John Pearson; fromLeicester City & W.B.A. Phil Gilchrist alongside former Northampton Town stars Coventry kid Terry Angus; and Bedworth born Dean Thomas as well as Stuart Storey (Hinckley Utd Manager and ex Birmingham City). The Midlands XI will also be assisted by two National Hunt Jockeys, Charlie Poste and Jodie Mumfordso somebody will be for the high jump!
I've just bought my 3 tickets. Block 20 on the halfway line. Does anybody know who the old boy is selling the tickets? Is he a former player?
I got 7 yesterday! Should be good! Even if we are mostly laughing at how unfit the old boys are. Then again, most would probably still show me up when it comes to fitness. And most will have probably retired before i Was born. Well maybe not....
We have limited resources we have made arrangements to open a very small number ofest cash turnstiles on the day for latecomers – but if you leave it late you may miss the build up to the fun and games and the actual kick-off by a ‘mystery’ guest.
DEANO any word on who the mystery guest could be?
but former player trevor lewis will be there,93 years old
maybe some old bald fat guy that took us to wembley....just guessing
let's hope so!
off to the match now
sing your hearts out for the lads
A bus driver?
Never heard of any of them!
On the way now :-)
He is brokenhearted from this forum we had a cheeky little discussion about grendel lol
Is the ticket office open until 12.30pm? I'm just about to head up there now.
A weatherman, 8 small parts and a widow twanky.
Nice bloke he was!
Looks like it's going to rain
I've heard of Dean Thomas
This is going to be a very special day in our history.
Get yourself to the Ricoh today to show you still care about football in Coventry.
It could also show new owners there is a fanbase in Coventry.
It will also put some much needed £ into local and cancer charity.
There is every reason to go!
Bought mine about 12.15, still around the 7,000 mark
Right, I'm here... Anyone know where i can get my hands on one of the sky blue kcic wristbands?
Gotta give props to the people who have maintained the pitch, looks beautiful!
Just sat down. Pitch looks the best I've seen it. What a pity it's not going to get properly used.
Im sat in my padded seat in block b :-)
