    Very weak finish by Cov Utd, who finished a little above Sphinx.

    Sphinx failed ground grading the other year so unless they've made improvements they are stuck at that level for now.

    I went past on the train en route to the Ricoh about 2:50 I'd say 100-150 in the stand at that point.

    Was just answering the original post question that at 2:50 I'd say between that figure.

    Couldn't care less how many were there, I have as much interest in them as I do in Villa.

    I'm equally as interested in Coventry United and Coventry Sphinx as I am in Coventry City.
    They all represent my city.
    I'd even root for Villa if they were playing a Manchester or London team.
    I did attend college in Aston.

    Apparently Sphinx have sacked their manager. They are like 6th in the league! Strange.
