    I understand that everyone who attended the sky blues trust forum has their heart in the right place. However, from watching the forum tonight it is quite clear that the sky blues trust clearly isnt the platform to grill Tim Fisher. Tonight was a genuine chance to get answers and ask intelligent factual questions. Instead what we got was a load of people shouting out and going on about how it was much better watching Coventry City in the 80's. I believe that the audience needs to be more intelligent and ask the important questions. Weve gained 0 knowledge from that utter shambles.

    Really??

    Thought we learnt quite a bit

    He opened by apologising for all the bad decisions made by the club this season

    Crfc are happy to work on a joint stadium at the butts.

    Robins is going to be given s top 8 budget in league 2 next season

    Of the 150 or so season ticket holders only 3 are definitely renewing and Tim doesn't think there's anything he can do or anything he should do

    Club is not for sale

    Sisu will continue to invest to keep club afloat

    He genuinely thinks that we believe some of what he says even though he has proved to be a pathological liar in his 5 year tenure

    The only comfort I have is the selection of Mark Robins as manager, not that I think he's the next Sir Alex Ferguson but his track record here suggests he wouldn't hesitate to sling his hook again if rugs were pulled from under his feet....again.

    Hats off to Fisher to be fair-like him or not he never hides. What did we learn? We learnt that a while ago the fans running on the pitch destroyed any chance of a deal with the Butts Park Areana. Now we are pressing ahead with the plans for a ground share at the Butts Park Arena? More lies.

    What on earth would you expect to learn from a pathological liar? I think the forum (partly) served one main purpose which was to show Fisher how much contempt the fans feel for him and Joy.

    He said a top third budget which could cover all the way to 15th in league two but at least they're taking us back to the community with Project Butts!

    Yep.

    The aim has to be promotion. Robins is going to have to be very shrewd in the transfer market and really be able to get the team gelling and competitive.

    The aim should be top 3.

    Think the Trust got caught between two stools. A) wanting to ask questions B) giving their members the opportunity to question Fisher. Both are worthy ideas. In the end neither were achieved successfully, the set up was wrong imo. It needed a detailed examination of Fisher for people to listen to followed by a short question time. As it was all put on the internet in any case did it need an audience at all? A questioning of Fisher for 90 minutes by two or three people might have been far more uncomfortable for Fisher

    Whilst I understand the anger and needing to have their say, many of the audience questions were rambling statements/rants that let Fisher deflect any decent question put to him. I don't think it would have mattered if a professional media guy was there to compere you would still have got many of the outbursts. I know everyone wants their say but think about it when you get the chance and keep it focussed and short.

    I would think that Fisher is quite pleased with last night, he got his messages across, didn't really answer any questions properly and people are questioning the merits of the SB Trust

    most unfortunate

    The worst aspect of the night was that he now has people believing a Butts move is a live project. It isn't, it is a pretext to blame other parties.

    Exactly. If we're not accepting anything bar an instant return from League 2 we may as well just pack up shop.
