    5 Efl clubs apparently. I’m guessing Blues maybe, Mk? West Brom, Villa. I’m guessing local clubs

    Can't see it being West Brom or Villa, would be way too big and the amount we'd pay wouldn't make it worth the trouble.

    Possibly Birmingham as they're skint and Walsall purely on size. Did they say Midlands clubs or are we talking within 50 miles?

    It would save us having to change the seat colour.

    Not sure everyone is suggesting non league clubs, it clear says 5 EFL clubs. My guess
    Northampton
    Walsall?
    Birmingham City?
    Burton?
    ....not sure on the 5th.

    St Andrew's would be ok, but only as a last resort.

    Northampton already said they would
    MK I’m sure wouldn’t have a problem with it
    Oxford’s stadium is owned by some guy wanting as much money as he can get
    Birmingham are skint

    Then either Walsall or Burton

    After reading that open letter if we have to travel to somewhere like Northampton, Birmingham or Walsall and there is or was land available to build a ground there should be serious questions asked and answered, in my opinion playing out of Coventry again could be fatal to our club.

    Birmingham's the obvious, as they need to get that pot to start pissing into.

    Would be, errrm, 'fun' going there, mind.

    You have to think MK is a definite, Blues likely but I cannot see villa. Walsall could be a potential club coming forward. Leicester would be the obvious choice from a logistical positioning but probably doubtful

    Can you imagine how terrible MK would be ? 3000 Coventry fans packed into one section of one end in a stadium similar in size to the Ricoh . Padded seats mind you.

    not going to lie for me personally if it was Walsall I would go, never going to live close to Coventry again so to travel 3 miles to see them would be a bonus
