As Singers at the end of the 19th century, and Coventry City in the early years of the 20th century, shirts were, on occasions, sky (or light) blue, as this site shows Thumbs up

. . . so that was just the kind of occasion where they needed a good result. Lots of kids went home yesterday thinking they might be better off supporting a Premiership team Roll eyes

You are quite right. Unfortunately, City are notorious for choking on those occasions that they have a big crowd at home, especially after a good run of results. The huge crowd on Saturday was down to cheap/free tickets, but City had won seven home games on the trot too. Cue an awful performance. As a friend said, we could have written the script. Roll eyes Saturday was my first game at the Ricoh for almost two years. It may be another two before we go again. Sad

This attendance figure is interesting. A friend of mine attended the game and he reckoned there were only about 22,000 actually there. Is this right? Worrying if it is, as that means maybe only 4,000 of the free children's tickets were used. Next time the City wanted to set a new attendance record they could offer free tickets to 25,000 Siberian reindeer herders, and even if they didn't turn up they would still be counted!

Belushi, I think you are correct. We were on the balcony in the posh seats. The two ends were the areas where free tickets were distributed and they were certainly not full. The stadium holds 32000, and my guess would have been around 24000 were there. I know they include season ticket holders whether they attend or not, as they have paid for their seats. But I'm not sure they can do that for when freebies are distributed. Far too many gaps for 28000. It would have been interesting to see how many were left at the final whistle. The last 15 minutes looked like a fire drill, and I reckon there were well under 10000 left at the end.

I think most Siberian reindeer herders are Manchester United fans or maybe even Chelsea!!!
