    Bloody hell, fair turnout this.

    I'd predicted no more than 7 000, so it looks like it will exceed my expectations.

    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'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?

    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!

    Just sat down. Pitch looks the best I've seen it. What a pity it's not going to get properly used.
