    Shit owners
    shit manager*
    players are either too young or shit
    future is shit
    new kit design is shit
    quality of the above is shit
    and all the real fans don't even have the effort left to complain anymore
    so all we have left is the usual suspects on here and the arseholes that I heard on the phone-in last night blaming the fans for our current plight
    I genuinely hope we get relegated,Sisu F*ck off and we either fold or get new owners with some ambition even if they don't have enough money to do it all properly .....Its got to be better than this SHIT

    * don't actually believe this as he has had the rug pulled under him so many times I hope someone comes in for him

    Boo hoo!. Thing is... it's not a matter of choice, we are from Coventry and it is our club. No it's not great but it is what it is and it will, eventually,
    get better. PUSB.

    I was with you till you hoped we are relegated. Don't want that but do want new owners, a commitment to the club, the city and the fans.
    We need a revolution ... Hillesque... It won't happen but we need something damn quick before the fans that remain drift away and the slow decline of our once proud club becomes terminal.
    I would consider anything to get us back to believing in our future... Not success initially but something where we again feel together as fans, where we anticipate the next game and we and the players wear the badge with pride.

    I would say, to summarise, we lost away today so there has beent he usual overreaction.

    Win two games in a row and everyone will be talking play-offs.

    Here endeth the thread.

    The relegation bit was written with a heavy heart but I genuinely believe it's the only answer...sadly..Sisu only want us to stay in Div 1 so they can keep pushing thru kids and making transfers fees they never disclose,lie about and never reinvest in the squad .....that's the cue for the normal suspects to start slagging me off but I really don't give a shit as they are small minded people who have nothing better to do....shame ...Revolution is what's needed but it will never happen as most real fans have dispersed FACT

    People banged on about relegation to league one because sisu would go. They banged on about administration because it would make them go.

    You do realise most transfers are un.disclosed, not just ccfc?

    If/when we lose the academy then the run of half decent kids will dry up. What keeps the club going will be lost no matter if we are in league 1 or 2.
    I genuinely can't see what SISU currently get out of their ownership of CCFC. They certainly don't command the respect of the majority of fans or people in the football world. I think they are only still here because of the outstanding legal cases.

    The selling Club writes into the contract that the buying club cannot disclose the real fee so they can pull the wool over the eyes of the punters and not reinvest much of the dosh at all..simples..

    you have your theories I have mine, lets agree to differ shall we?
    I just hope the currently plight (spiralling the drain) might incense enough people to turn up and protest properly and get some real media attention nationally and beyond because that would hurt the board members of Sisu ..At the moment I have no plans to give them 1 more penny (or £23+) to turn up at the Wasps Arena but I would for this....and no I am not condoning violence before you bat that one back at me!

    It is nothing about theories. It is fact. It is not about it being right or wrong, you are categorically wrong.

    There is no theory or opinion about it. You are wrong, it is not about agreeing to differ if you are talking absolute shit and making stuff up.

    So far today there have been 3,586 different people on here.

    This is my point, people just make stuff up and then claim it's their opinion.

    It is so rival clubs don't know how much money we have to spend (or in our case how much we haven't got)

    Most are probably watching the game.

    I had never heard anybody rant and nearly start crying until a couple of weeks ago.

    I think he was just pointing out that you were talking shit..again...

    So, about it being 1 or 2 people on here...?

    do you realise we adults can rant and rave (because we care) without nearly crying don't you?........and my point ,which you missed is that most of the people who feel this way no longer go as we refuse to give Sisu our hard earned money ....Still going does not make you a better (or worse) fan it means you handle in differently.....But I don't slag them off and they spent every waking hour on here name calling and ignoring what's happening in front of them,

    For many the answer is to try and walk away. The ridiculous state of affairs at CCFC and the owners refusal to either tell the truth about their true intentions or fuck off means that there is nothing a dissenter can do other than find other things to do with their life. It's hard if you have the City in your blood but that is what many have done now.

    Didn't Sepalla say when we moved to Northampton and fan base vanished she was basically told by the investors enough is enough. If we carry on at this rate and loans and freebies the attendance will be similar. I for one pay over £500 plus vat and football isn't cheap and have had enough of this now. If it's the same way next season me and my old fella will throw in the towel. 23 years season ticket holders and enough is enough not enjoying it anymore. It is at the end of the day something you enjoy not turning up for the sake of it.
    I don't know the answer but it feels as if we are all at breaking point.

    Many of the guys on here appear to be people with young kids and they are developing that Dad n Lad bond through the footie, they might see it different one day when/If their kids grow up and lose interest. I can see why some feel a need to keep it rolling and try and see some positives. I did it myself for 15 years with my kids and spent a fortune on all the tickets and attire etc. With those days gone and almost all of the crowd I went with having given up or moved away it's a real struggle motivating yourself to sit, often on your own in a cold 1/3rd full echo ridden arena.

    But when is that little run of wins coming I think we have played a few of the so called lesser teams in this league and have 2 points from 18 .Millwall away next week it isn't going to get any easier and I'm generally upbeat about our chances.
