    Good, lets show everyone we could still be a massive club if it were not for our owners being pricks and a Council who are greedy.
    No one cares but us so lets show them we do !!!

    I still fear people have moved on. I expect 1-2k but I sincerely hope I'm wrong and it's more than last year.

    Only problem I have is this march/protest will achieve nothing other than pride an principle something that went as soon as we stepped foot in sixfields.

    I know a fair few coming. Depends on the weather. Rain could slash numbers in half.

    What a brilliant idea for an away game protest! Mustn't forget the big shades though!

    You can't deny fans the right to watch their team in their town and not expect it to dent enthusiasm.

    Some fans had 50+ years of loyalty thrown back in their face.

    Where the fuck was the Telegraph last year then? Sitting on the fence when it really could have put pressure on SISU. No real investigative journalism on the biggest story in the City for years. Now we are told we have to support the Telegraphs "Campaign".

    Its rubbish Gilbert - too little to late and you should be ashamed.

    Didn't the Coventry Telegraph relocate to Birmingham? Tbh I the only reliable source of Skyblues news I take nowadays is Michael Orton's emails. The ccfc website is totes hillaire too.

    It's never pointless to stick to a principle and engage in community action. Sisu and acl and CCc are mugs to have let this happen and to still allow it to be happening is scandalous

    Well he should know about the hypocrisy and cowardice shown by the Telegraph and I assume the Campaign plan is his idea by the way he is banging the drum for it - lazy, generic and populist without the balls to hold to account the people responsible for our situation.

    So, you agree, it wasn't his role last year, so can't be blamed for that. Who's role was it? :o

    This was our position last year (two months before I joined) http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/sport/football/football-news/keep-coventry-city-in-coventry-3414872

    Where were we? I was at the march. Here's my report written 5 days after I joined the company. http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/news/coventry-news/thousands-sky-blues-fans-flood-5167884

    I think it was our old mate Les who flip flopped from SISU outer to Council Hater before being moved on by editor Alun Thorne who has bravely started A KCIC campaign 14 months too late

    That's just reportage of the march. You could hardly ignore it!

    As for last years "campaign" can I ask why it wasn't sustained through the year if it was SO important to you?

    I have found Simon Gilberts articles of great interest since he took over from Less Reid, even buy the paper (Leamington Spa issue) again.

    Why are some people so anti anything that might be positive. Even the most hated group (SISU) have hinted that its best to put the past behind us.

    As for the march, it solves nothing but my God it still makes me feel good when I remember last year.

    Well done to those who take the time to organise such things, its great to know some still care.
    500 or 1000. I want to be part of it on Saturday and wear my shirt with pride

    I reckon then you're going to plump for Spider-Man, Batman, The Hulk, David Brent, Maggie T, Vivien, Alan B'Stard, Alan Partridge, Bugs Bunny, James Bond and Wonder Woman.

    Not sure there's anything on at Sixfields on Saturday. There's a bike ride on Sunday though.
