    I agree, shouldn't be abuse of people going into the game to watch a game of Rugby. The majority will just be rugby fans probably with no idea, they arent all like the bellends who want to see the club go bust or think its a statement that they now support Wasps.

    I think it's best to avoid 'blame' altogether tomorrow, and just focus on the fact we're suffering.

    Not just to random people though going into the game?

    If of course you know full well its somebody like steve from cov but it might just be a bloke who likes watching Rugby minding his own business.

    I’m in. Blockading the stadium car parks would be my first option but I’ll go along with the turnstiles instead, better than us all standing by Jimmy Hill’s statue looking like lost sheep.

    Sometimes, you have to play the game, and it's right that confrontation wouldn't help. If somebody were to talk to me as per their board link as given, then I'd give my views back. I equally wouldn't want it be seen as anti SISU and nothing else, after all. But that's it, I don't think it serves a purpose, in this instance, to have a protest as anti SISU, anti Wasps, anti CCC. Anybody turning up will have their own views, many different, but the emphasis is whoever's at fault, it affects us all - we may all bicker here, but the consequences are felt by us all. We need to fight for the club, not against each other.

    Frankly, this should have all been started long ago so a campaign could build up and maybe have a more decisive effect but, again, we are where we are.

    Just checked on twitter under our usual hashtag #pusb and there is nothing regarding this. I'm not sure this is being pushed enough by the main players, if at all.

    Go for it in trying to get it out there.

    To be fair, everybody in sky blue in the pub will probably be more effective than randomly standing about outside! Get in Cov Welsh, Bull and Anchor and then the Brewery. Carry out on the grass with a picnic.

    This. I’m happy to push it on twitter if people on here are happy for it to go on there. Don’t want over-disgruntled yobs jumping on and just coming along to give out a torrent of abuse. I’ll call a Wasps ‘fan’ many things, but tomorrow just needs diplomacy, right?

    Need to get it on the Facebook forums too. I fear it may be too late to attract a crowd.

    I agree, too late.

    but can at least give it a go? Can't control who comes really, but that's also the consequence of no 'official' support for it.

    His presence would be most welcome. Once he puts aside his schtick he's articulate and intelligent, and has a valid POV.

    Hopefully he is. In all seriousness I would genuinely love to see him there, Nick too.

    It needs a "known" twitter handle to post it and then everyone retweets, that's how it will snowball. Trust, PSBG, JimmyHillWay, one of the supporters groups....

    If I post it, I'll be battered by the usuals immediately and then it will be squashed before it even takes off.

    Well I've asked the Trust... via various avenues. Still silence. tbh it's getting a bit late for numbers even if they come on board now (really, they were needed yesterday, this morning... some time!), so we might have to go viral instead.

    How about a hashtag we try and get trending? #SkyBlueProtest or something?

    I think this protest should be about getting the parties involved to recognise the damaging affect it's having on the CCFC support.
    The fan base of the club sisu are custodians of and a group who I strongly suspect have a far bigger proportion of Coventry council tax payers and residents than wasps.
    We're not going to garner any sympathy if we start abusing people.

    I have just read they have collections tomorrow for armed force charities.

    Thinking outside the box, it might send more of a message if people in cov tops were shaking some buckets to help. Actually doing something and being charitable! ;)

    So far nobody actually knows what people will do when they get to the statue, so it's going to be a group of city fans stood there.

    To save you a wasted trip the Bull and Anchor is shut currently, normally rammed on Wasps matchdays so wonder where these people will head instead?
