Here's "COVENTRY CITY FC" pictured on their victory parade, when they became Division 2 Champions back in 1967. "CONGRATULATIONS" must definitely go to the current "CCFC" team, for what they brilliantly achieved at Wembley today! (If only they could have played good like that all this past season hey?)

Seems to be our thing - we only win something when the year end in a 7!

What an absolutely fantastic day! I didn't think there were that many people in Coventry let alone Sky Blues fans at Wembley. From the second the Tube doors opened from the Jubilee Line virtually every person was wearing Sky Blue. It was one massive party - young and old. My youngest is only ten and had never experienced 40,000+ fans all singing together. A truly memorable event. I was there in 1987 with my dad and now the roles were reversed - and I'm sure my dad was in Sky Blue Heaven! Big grin

My two sons won £150 after they placed a bet on the result, unfortunately there wasn't a great deal of the winnings left when they returned from Wembley, having spent a few hours in London after the game. Cheers Cheers

Don't pay much attention to things like that and quite often it's based on a single visit and experiences can vary game to game, even with the time of year. If the visit occurs while the team are on a bad run and they lose the game in question it will be a poor atmosphere. For a team on a winning run near the top it'll be a good one. Going on a sunny Saturday in August is going to be better than a cold wet Tue in January. I'll bet when they visited Sunderland, Leicester etc it was towards the back end of last season when they were on good form rather than this when they've both been quite poor.

I absolutely agree. But, of course, the report did NOT say that the Ricoh is the worst stadium in the country, it is just lazy reporting. That would be a ludicrous thing to say about a stadium that was chosen for Olympic matches and has 32000 seats, all with an excellent view. Some of the shabby old stadiums in the Premier League such as Goodison, Anfield, etc, can only dream of the Ricoh's sight lines. What the survey was assessing is the matchday experience, and some of the visits were made several years ago.. Of course, the fact that the team is in dire straits and playing in front of 7-8000 fans and losing most of the time makes for a poor experience, especially given the understandable negativity towards the club's owners. The Ricoh with 20000+ inside is actually a very good atmosphere and experience, far better than some of those at the bottom of the survey's list. As for places like WBA and Sheffield United at the top - words fail me!

For those who haven't read the survey, the comment about the Ricoh is: Worst feature: Often-soulless atmosphere in a virtually empty stadium - the move to a new ground just hasn't worked out, and it's hard not to feel for Coventry fans in that situation. Home end has been shut and used to house a giant Jimmy Hill banner, a reminder of what the club used to be. As MisterD-Di says, the survey was assessing the matchday experience - CCFC 2017 is hardly in the best state for a reasoned assesssment of its stadium to be carried out And for it to be rated below the likes of Grimsby, Crawley and Newport is astonishing - I wonder what the survey would have made of Fellows Park (Walsall) with its laundry wall at one end, and Northampton Town's County Ground (standing on benches along the cricket ground side!) back in the day! Oh my Lol As also mentioned, it's more "lazy reporting" from Trinity Mirror Sad

Somewhat ironic - at 7.00pm MUTV are showing as "On this day", ManchesterUnited v Coventry City, from 2000/2001 - that seems a billion miles away from today Angry

A very sad day indeed Kaga! Sad It's a shame we didn't get Mark Robins in instead of Venus taking over. He seems to have been a breath of fresh air, but all a bit too late. I worry just how easy it will be for us to "bounce back" when the owners are likely to sell any emerging talent we are likely to have.

One of my ambitions in the forty odd years I've lived in Coventry has always been to see my home city play my adopted city in a football match. It looks likely that I will get to see this next season but not in the way I'd hoped for as I'd always thought it would be in a cup match Sad
