Quality reply and read respect to you and your family!!I actually do not really understand what you mean by that. I can only assume that you maybe misread my posts!? Other than that, honestly no idea!
However, it did make me smile remembering my great grandad on my mum’s side. A stevedore at Millwall docks, and a who as a young man served in the Royal Navy fighting the Kasier and then in the Merchant Navy trying to defeat Hitler.
He was born in Bermondsey in 1896 to a typical working class family of the era and place. Yet, he voted Conservative all his life. Apparently my dad used to always question this, as he was and still is a Labour voter. My dad used to say he didn’t understand how a working man could vote for them lot. To which my great granddad apparently used to reply ‘I was born into nothing and I fucking don’t aspire to continue to have nothing or give up what I have managed to get for myself’.
As I can only think you meant to insult me, it did make me smile as to what my great granddad, a navy boxing champion, would have to say to some spoilt and pampered baby boomer / generation Xer / millennial (delete as appropriate) withering on about what East End Dockers should think about socialism.
Anyway, I only came on to say it sounded a good game today (a ding dong Championship match) and Coventry brought a large and loud support. So I hope all you Sky Blues that went had a decent day out. I was stuck at a child’s birthday party in one of those horrific warehouses with play pens etc., so I am under no doubt that I have seen more hooliganism and toxic tribalism than any of you today.
Again… good luck to Coventry City. Genuinely mean that, for reasons already stated.
