    We know you both follow things that are said and written on here and even occasionally lift themes of threads and expand on them. Just do us a fucking favour and stop trying to play one up man ship on social media with my club. Put your professional dislike aside and just repot the facts as you have been told them rather than just click baiting each other. Their is something happening that long suffering supporters deserve to know about but they want real facts so do your jobs professionally, stop acting like school kids and give us accurate information about the situation as it happens. If you cant I suggest you both look for editorial positions on The Beano.

    I was personally hoping it was going to be a boxing match.

    If the forum software allowed it, I'd like this post ten times over.

    I'm gonna like it, unlike it and like it again to try and simulate the experience.

    I'd sign in as Glen and like it, but I'm too committed to the character

    Are both these reporters City fans or just employed by their respective papers?

    We should ask for ticket stubs to see, then the difference between then equals a free punch.

    Hmm, not sure I'd advocate violence towards anybody no matter whether you agree with somebody or not.

    It's not serious, plus it would be a charity boxing match.

    Disclaimer, this is not advocating actual attacks on innocent people. It is jokingly suggesting a charity boxing match.

    Perhaps if they had a charity boxing match in aid of buying Sisu out we could get a massive deposit to put down?

    Got to be careful of Gilberts hair though, it acts like a protective crash helmet.

    If you don't want there to be violence, why not set them both up on little pedestals, like subbuteo figures, with an oversize ball? (Can use their ego's for that) We can all have a go at "shoving" them. At least it would be the correct sport?

    Not sure how to "shove" them though, maybe a high powered hydraulic ram?? ;)

    Yep spot on. Embarrassing.

    I hate what Circus the club has become on and off field enough but the modern media obsession with click bait/substance-less reporting is making it unbearable.

    Just makes me switch off, can't be sustainable, surely people get wise and will stop clicking on click bait twitter links

    Agree, I'm completely sick of Gilbert's petty pointscoring on twitter. He has shot fans down for weeks, calling any rumours of a takeover 'bollocks' and saying his sources had said nothing's going on.

    To stir it up, he then published a pathetic article suggesting a bunch of Australians led by Mark Schwarzer, might be putting in a bid. Then yesterday, he said he was delighted to 'finally be able to reveal' that Hoffman and co had put in an offer for the club.

    I like Gilbert as a person, but as a journalist I think He knows nothing and acts cocky when wrong. He's a poor mans Gulleame Buileage, or whoever that tosspot is on Sky that covers Spanish football and always gets stories farcically wrong

    He'd just bring his hockey stick to overcome that disadvantage (he plays for C&NW).

    Why do these lads get such abuse for taking up positions on a subject when the very same juxtapose opinions appear on this site.. The usual suspects support Reid and the council supporters ,egg chasers support Gilbert. Your looking in the mirror boys . Dont you like what you see?

    Thankfully, this site has little responsibility for reporting with truth and accuracy.

    Because we are, after all, on a fans forum chatting shit! Not in an official post spouting shit as fact! What we write on here is a matter of opinion, which is then translated as fact by a "journalist' who then gets very defensive/passive aggressive on social media when outed as a fraud!
    From the outside world point of view we have a mickey mouse club, make to look even more so by the likes of Giblet and Reid!

    The trouble with Reid is that he has allowed his bitter dispute with the Coventry Telegraph to become so personal that it has clouded his judgement. At times he comes across as hysterical in his reaction,and it just seems too personal for him. As others have said he just keeps repeating the same soundbites over and over again,as if that somehow makes them true.
    What was actually said between the various parties at different times, a lot we can only guess, depends often on people's prejudices. But what we know for certain is what Fisher has repeatedly told us the fans over years, about buying land, moving to a new site. According to Fisher this should have been our first full season at our promised new stadium. So it is beyond doubt that Fisher has been economical with the truth for years to us the supporters, and yet Reid seems to treat this as a minor oversight.
    He has never presented any credible case, for a move to the Butts. Who would finance it, who would own it, why would CRFC get involved with an organisation who are utterly toxic. Why would they benefit from playing even in a 12000 stadium when they get gates of just over 1000.

    Moaning about Gilbert on here is just weird IMO. Reid, however, deserves everything he gets.

    Being one of the posh twats from rural Warwickshire (I'm not actually posh) I don't have quite the same understanding as the situation as everyone else does. Anything that Gilbert says/does pisses me off (says more about me than him), so I refuse to follow him on Twitter & take everything he says with a bucket of salt. To sound a bit amateur, can anyone provide me with a fair assessment of Les Reid as I know very little of him & the Cov Observer?
