    The city centre is what lets
    Cov down, I’d rather go elsewhere to do shopping. There are many worse towns and cities though.

    The problem is the lack of investment in Coventry. Whilst I don’t see an issue with the students in the city - there’s lack of things for them to do whilst it’s just as easy to pop on the train to Birmingham - better shopping, bars and nightlife

    Other than getting stabbed, there isn’t much you can do in Coventry

    Indeed. Was always going to happen if/when the results started to falter and the novelty wore off.

    I wouldn’t say we’re faltering - on the contrary 2 defeats in 16 is unreal. I think there’s a bit of frustration about our finishing but other than that, I’m still hyped about this season

    No,stabbings only happen in Coventry. If people don't like it here then move. Simple.

    Probably should rephrase it-not as good as we started the season off.

    The Ricoh is a souless place and has been since we were relegated from the championship. That's not really the fault of the stadium, neither in design nor location .
    If we were attracting 18,000 plus every game it wouldn't receive the criticism it gets , but we'll only get that when we are in the championship or higher.
    The club seem to think that we would be getting an average of around 13,000 this season if we had remained at the Ricoh: still less than half full but given our circumstances ove the last decade its reasonable : better than some attrendences at HR when we were in the top division.
    The fact is if we were in the premier league the atmosphere wouldn't be an issue.

    It's like a big city with a small town centre.

    A big city with a small town centre that’s been neglected. It’s utter crap.

    Loads of pubs in the city centre. A total myth that there's nowhere to drink

    Other than more touristy cities like Bristol, Nottingham and Newcastle, Coventry is no worse than Sunderland, Stoke, Wolverhampton, Derby, Bradford, Portsmouth, Plymouth and Hull.

    I only realised Coventry wasn't too bad the moment I left the city.

    Sorry mate, but that's rubbish. If you knew anything about Torch you'd know that he lives and breathes Coventry City, Affection for the club is not contingent on living in the city or (judging by the number of Liverpool/Manchester/Arsenal shirts knocking about) vice versa.

    I don't wish to know the odious individual. I haven't questioned his support of the club I've questioned his attitude towards whether he cares if we're back in Coventry or not. A question he seems to avoid.

    I've worked in brum for 25 years and the abuse I've had off that lot for being from Coventry is unbelievable. They question where I'm from when that place is even worse. I remember us playing blues/villa home and away over the years and my anger during those games cos of the inter city rivalry was mad. Those who know what I'm on about will know where I'm coming from. I'm sorry but the likes of him will never feel that way.

    It's a Coventry thing. Just continuously slag the place off. It's not that bad here.

    Has this guy actually been to the Ricoh Arena? What pub is he missing? There was never a pub at the Ricoh or near the Ricoh.

    Was that walking distance from the ground? One of the things I hated about the Ricoh Arena was there were no decent pubs nearby and we ended up drinking in the casino, but fair enough if the Cherry Tree was nearby. I must have missed that.

    No there really isn’t... there’s about 3 decent places.
    But as I said, it’s a £5 train journey to Birmingham and back to get all of this on a bigger scale. The shopping centre is great and you can make a day of it. Broad street alone has better and more bars than the whole of Coventry

    Growing up in Coventry was literally going on the same route every Saturday night. But there is no other reason to go to the city centre
