    Agree with the people saying it feels way more SISU out than about us being homeless. From my point of view I did think there was a larger number in support today than usual. Not too sure about the yellow vests though...

    How will it unite the fan base?

    It will get some pats on backs for saying sisu out. Nothing more.

    Obviously, a few people have stayed behind with sisu out banners. They must care more than everybody else.

    Funny protest if you think about it. If they stayed until the next Wasps home game they’d just add them to the gate.

    Ah well, let people blow off some steam, can’t do any harm.

    That would be a good protest.

    It won't change anything but massive respect if you can stick it out. Do you want me to order you some food?

    If they want more people to stay they need to publicise it. Not sure what it will achieve other than a bill for the club for the stewards overtime.

    Does anyone really think Sepalla even knows its taking place, let alone that it will have any influence? Would be better off aiming it at Wasps and asking for someone at Wasps to come and speak to them to justify potentially killing the club with their actions.

    They must love protests that don't target them that mean they can send us a bill and make themselves some money.

    They were mostly young kids that are worried about their Club.
    Fair play to them.

    But today was a SISU out protest wasn't it? According to all the banners being waved and CWR, today was a SISU out protest. Nothing to do with the rent deal

    Because the campaign about the forthcoming homelessness, strongly assisted by the Trust and JHW etc, has just reverted to a SISU out campaign. Perfect for Wasps and the Council.

    Say SISU goes, who is taking over? What's stopping SISU continuing with the court case anyway?

    Of course it's perfect for them.

    It's pretty blatant as well, to the point their bloke is trying to wind the fans up to protest.

    Absolutely pathetic protest.

    Make it about staying at the Ricoh and I'll join in. Another pointless rant about SISU out and I'm afraid I'm out too. They're not listening and they don't care. In fact the ground situation apart we've been given a budget to compete as well as many others in this league so I'm not sure changing them helps.

    Stay at the Ricoh is the only important point worth shouting about.

    Almost all of them are teenagers and are trying to vent and show they think what’s happening is not acceptable. I personally think they’re doing it in a lawful way that doesn’t hurt anyone. Fair play to them. It’d be better if it was more about keeping CCFC at the Ricoh than the ownership but they could doing be a lot worse things with their time.

    Bang on!!
    Wasps playing russian roulette with the club, makes me so angry that there is no pressure being put on them. Why the hell aren't The Trust and JHW encouraging cranking up pressure on them. Protests against SISU have had and will have zero effect.
    Wasps got into bed with the council a long long time ago... before our move to Sixfields. People who say Wasps have done nothing wrong must have little love for CCFC as ultimately them refusing to do a deal with the club will either kill it or resign it to relegation to non league football.
    Having played at most levels of that, anybody wishing a "phoenix club" have absolutely no idea what they will be facing. Trying to get through the leagues is incredibly difficult with many clubs throwing massive amounts at it and failing. Some of the holes that you would go to are archaic with horrific facilities. People may not also realise that we would attract players of around that level (budget = income etc) and it could be years, if ever that CCFC would see the football league again.
    By refusing to talk/deal with CCFC, WASPs are equally culpable and could kill our club.
    Get the pressure on them, get it public, make it known that if thet play a part in killing CCFC then the people of Coventry will not make life easy for them (??)
    If people want CCFC to survive in any form worthwhile, start cranking it up on WASPS!!!!
    WASPS are going to be a factor in our non existence if the current direction of protest/action is followed.
    Get some balls Trust and JHW and start to aim in other directions too!!!

    Meanwhile, the football goes from success to success. Enjoy it. Get off Facetwat, Grange Hill News, etc.

    They could also be fingering and trying to get into night clubs. (Not at the same time, but impressive if they do).

    I guess they have grown up with that as the norm and people being praised for it.

    Thousands of Portsmouth supporters who did a sit in after a midweek game against Ipswich a few years ago didn't ask why, they simply felt they had to do something. You think it will achieve nothing. I happen to agree that it's probably the case. There won't be anyone here from SISU. They're probably all abroad. However, if a group of supporters feel passionate enough to do it then let them . It may achieve nothing but at least they tried. It's easy to keep saying " why. What's the point ?"
    One thing is for sure: if no one does anything, then nothing will ever happen.

    Our protests have always been poor. SISU have run this football club horrendously and very little has been done.

    Look at all the other poorly run football clubs in England. Leeds, Pompey, Blackburn and now Blackpool. All of them protested better than us and have all now been successful.

    I'm pleased for Blackpool this week. Their fans protested in a well-organised fashion. They boycotted religiously when needed.

    I think there is a lot of things being claimed as fans power that masks the real reasons for ownership change. Fans played their part in each case but the major factor has always been other.
