..and surpassing many others.
I bet you are the one insisting on the shoes. I have had an electrician in today and told him to take his shoes off or the missus would go mad. But really it was me.
good stuff. couldn't do me a favour and take a few with you ?
A few what?
to be fair mate, you've developed at bit of an obsession with him!
Well I'm a troll of course. His personal troll, to be precise.
Now who could it be?
True. Well at least they are leaving me alone for a while!
Thought I would wait till things calmed down a bit to respond to this.
We were caught up in the queue to get off at spaghetti junction and go past the villa ground, and have been in the past when villa are playing. We did, however, notice that one of the coaches went off to the right, so up and over the motorway so may check out that way to see if it's any quicker.
One thing I am surprised at is that nobody has mentioned the lack of female stewards to carry out searches last week - the ladies having to queue separately with only one turnstile being available. Not a huge problem really, in fact probably got in quicker. However, whoever had a go at the young lady needs to have a look at themselves!
yeah I saw that some idiot was giving it big in that queue
Yes my wife was not impressed ( and those of you who know the things annoy you thread - she has the patience of a gnat ) as there was no queue in the rhs as you look at the ground and then she had to go and queue on the lhs - shouldnt take rocket science to understand people come together male and female
Use your sat navs rather than going to 6, get off at 5 as it's quicker. Down past the fort.
just left after winterfell
Surely last night our lowest ever attendance for a first team match ?
It has to be.
What were the checkatrade attendances at Sixfields like?
That was before they changed the format though and allowed Man United under 14s in. There was slightly more respect for it back then
Just researched it and we didn’t actually play there. First season Leyton Orient knocked us out in first round at their place, second season we were already back at the Ricoh by the time we had a home tie
Found this from 2016 which suggests last night did set a new record When Coventry City attracted their lowest ever attendance
I wonder when iFollow purchases will count towards attendance? Wouldn't surprise me if there were more watching at home.
Wow, so less than half of our previous lowest ever crowd !
It’s not a real game though. This is really a reserve game and has no interest to hardly anyone. I was at that Wimbledon game in the equally pointless cup when as a top flight team we got 1,000
I asked the club how they can justify a 40 percent increase in the cost of coach travel.Looking at their reply it seems less people are using the coaches so hence the increase. By next season then the cost will be even higher as less people travel this way. This seems self defeating if you want people to go to Brum.
Yeah and I have just noticed there are going to be huge problems on west midland trains every Saturday until Christmas.
It isn't the club, it's the providers.
Are the providers running this as private venture or does the club hire the coaches and then sell the seats
it does'nt matter who it is, the end result will be less fans go. I've already lost the argument with my mates who will not go to Brum and now I also am out. They can count me in the crowd for the rest of this season because I have a season ticket, but I will not be there.
Because of £2? They could have kept the price the same but just put 1 coach on first come first served, that would have stopped even more fans going.

I get it's not ideal but really, not going for the rest of the season over £2 is pretty dramatic. Although I can't say I blame you as an individual, Coventry and Warks for some reason has the some of the flakiest football fans around.
Each to their own but if you're willing to fork out over £200 (ish) for a season ticket i highly doubt the extra £2 is causing an issue.
Get an unofficial coach if its the price?
Dont want to make a sweeping accusation but your post sounds a lot like one of those fans that doesnt want to go and will claim any excuse they can as to the reason...
The train is cheaper anyway
Really? Over £2 because the coach provider has put their prices up?
I guess if fuel companies put petrol prices up you’d not go if you drive
Might be a good one for when it gets cold.
A few weeks ago it was because of lack of parking at the Ricoh: St Andrews
