    An industrial dispute led by "Red Oggy" would get us back on the front/back pages.

    Just a thought.

    The only positivity coming out of the club is on the field action, Good idea it would be to strike!

    Are we paying their wages? Under what basis of paying their bills would they think it was a sound idea?

    I'm sure it won't. But if it did....oohhhh if it did......... Wouldn't it help bring things to a head ? And it wouldn't have to last long. Just a week or so.

    Step 1. Take sharp carving knife
    Step 2. Place against the septum
    Step 3. Hack repeatedly until nose is clean off

    Result - You can consider your faced to be sufficiently spited now that you've successfully severed you nose.

    Better they strike, or whatever, when doing the stuff on the pitch than when not. Bigger Impact.

    Striking is an extreme and obviously very unlikely. But couldn't they do something to show their feelings. How about all playing with a KCiC bracelet ?

    Think they're prohibited from making any political statements, so it'd be difficult.

    Agree some sort of show of unit would be nice, but i wouldn't hold your breath, these are guys paid to play sport. They have a great lifestyle and not likely to becoming out with nasty truths ( even if they were away of an issue, a lot of them aren't the sharpest tools)

    Would it be a political statement ? Anyway all joking aside I think the players could help if they were properly organised. Something suitably clandestine but supportive of the feelings 99% of us have. Coventry city should be in Coventry.

    I think its possible and would have a bigger impact than any fan led initiative.

    Anyway the nurse has just turned up with my pills. Toodle pip for now !

    Didn't the players go on strike at the beginning of last year or was that just working to rule?
