Sorry to milk the whole Twist and Shout thing.

I am utterly overwhelmed with the response the Coventry fans at half time video as got over the last three days since I uploaded it. First of all thanks for sharing it. The first place I shared my video was right here on these forums and within a hour it took off from here.

Since I uploaded the video I have had many emails from many places regarding the video such as Getty Images and as far away as Singapore News Network and a few companies who wanted to buy the promotional rights to the video. I recently got into a one year contract with a company to further the exposure of the video, they have rented space to 'put' my video with companies such as MSN, Yahoo, AOL and lots of Asian web companies. I want to do as much as I can for my club so this is why the video now has adverts.

The biggest enjoyment I have had so far is reading the many pages of comments all over the web. The worst comments I have read by any football fans on the net is about the price of a pint at the Emirates! It's also great when people say they have a soft spot for us now or we are their new 2nd club or even just football fans are now more aware of our clusterfuck of a situation.

The Why and When protest was an absolutely great idea and well thought out, I will never forget the buzz I got after holding up my 'why' and 'when' pieces of A4 paper from the applauding Gooners and I will never forget the mood of the Coventry fans throughout the entire day we had in London. We are a credit to ourselves, from the pubs to being inside the Emirates, half time party which I was lucky to be a part of let alone my video going viral, to the fans after the game having a great time in the pubs, Arsenal and Cov fans getting along and getting drunk together even though one team lost 0-4.


A list of links where Twist and Shout got a little more exposure for our problems and plight.

Yeah well done Fluffsta, although I prefer your video in the 12 Pins, the one with that good looking fella in the red coat and cap.

Fluffsta, your videos have been excellent. That one of the hill protest was brilliant too. Hope to see more!

What he said!

All the vids are great, sad to think how much is being missed by so many.

Dont apologise for milking it, long time since there was anything like a feel good factor, them vids provide one if only for a short time.

Seeing them made so many feel good, proud, can only be a good thing!

I always said we needed to send something viral to help the cause and you've only gone and done it! Great work and great video. Definitely something the fans can feel good about.

Brilliant effort.
This settles any argument for the "Cov in Cov" battle cry, "Twist and Shout" it is!

There's some proper retarded comments on that video. Why do people watch something they know they won't lIke then comment saying they don't like it. Get a fucking life. Worse than people on here.

470k now by the way.

We've picked up a lot of new fans/admirers from this and made more people aware of our plight. Maybe it's something to springboard off of? Forgetting all this protest malarkey as, to be honest, I don't think it is working. Maybe spend the rest of the season being amiable and likable (we all saw the comments from the likes of Preston who thought we deserved it and had no sympathy). Go to away games and make a tonne of noise, have fun. Talk to other fans, at the grounds and on their forums. Don't bring the politics into it much, but instead get people to like us more. They will see our amazing support, then see the stark contrast when they visit Sixfields and see how this whole mess is killing our club first hand. They will be more likely to be sympathetic when we talk about our problems if they see us a bunch of good lads, who know how to have fun, but are having our club ripped away from us. Hopefully if that all works then next season we will have a big enough support base from outside of the City to make bigger impacts upon the FA, the league and the game as a whole. Take it back to grass roots. All of us versus everything wrong in football, instead of a few of us from Coventry against a hedgefund. Maybe that will get results?

With the carlsberg signs in the background it would make a great online advert for them,
If carlsberg did fans ....

Message for Fluffsta;
Have you linked your vid to the Epetition?
Clearly, both have universal appeal.

which petition, post it up
The e petition.
The point is:
If fluffsta can get 0.5 Mill hits for his opportunistic video can he link it to the petition? We only need 20% of the hits he's already got. Way t go, surely?

Maybe if it was on from the start. Expect it Wil tail off a bit now.
