Odds on some league game gates being less than 750 ?

Odds on some JPT games being less than 300 ?

A decent chance we might see both those I reckon.



it is more than I thought they would sell :shock:

Good guessing without facts, the website has been down most of the week and they're still working on direct debit payments. I've not got mine yet based on these facts but will in the next few days.

Dog, without seeking to question your interpretation based on your view over who is most culpable but where does this sit with your estimates about the figures of who were prepared to protest.
I mean could you revise your opinions about numbers based on facts or are you sticking to the dogma?
Has your thinking evolved beyond "write it on a pissed stained bed sheet" on what might be the best way out of the impasse?
Just wonderin', like.

Any chance of repeating the question in legible English please? Ideally I'd like to understand what the fuck you're on about before calling you a ****. Ideally.

Call me what you like..........but curious to know if the recent Keep Cov in Cov march had changed your mind about perceived effect of protests?

Effect? So far, minimal. Nothing has changed and I doubt SISU learnt anything new, a few thousand people in cov are pretty pissed off hardly going to get them panicking in Mayfair. However, it was a decent turn out, seemed better organised and I liked the idea that the message of the day was keep cov in cov rather than SISU out. It just shows what can be achieved with the right planning and message, it's just a shame they still insist on doing the mickey mouse stuff, I can't help but wonder where we'd be now if it had been properly managed from the start.

If the club move back to the Ricoh it's nothing to do with the protests, it's because ACL are in the shit because the casino are off too, so an agreement HAS to be reached. All they're doing is trying to find a way where neither side lose (Either of their two) face(s).

The casino are off? Is that a direct result of city not playing there or has the Chinese population of Coventry moved elsewhere.

I have been told that the football match days bar takings account for over 60 percent of the Casinos annual bar takings. The have threatened to close unless something changed. Interesting bit is that ACL have tried to reassure them that they have other Coventry Sporting Clubs lined up to replace the City. More porkies from ACL as I cant think of another Coventry Sporting Club that can be even close to a like for like replacement.

I am guessing that Compass arent too pleased either.

I wonder what ACL profit/loss figures will look like without a football club and casino? Perhaps now they will be more likely to want to do a deal and this is why there is now some dialogue between the club and ACL.

I wonder about the stadium rights too, Ricoh can't be too happy with losing the anchor and only last summer they signed up til 2025 but said a future extension would depend on the success/profile of the football club.

Ricoh couldn't have asked for better coverage although when the furore dies down and we have settled into Sixfields it will be history, although some people are still under the illusion that we will be playing games there still

Les Reid Twitter comment (26 July): "@sirjase Other sources claim anything still possible on #CCFC #ACL Ricoh talks, even before TUES. Claim is "deal to be done". We'll see." Of all the people commenting on all things CCFC, LR is as on the ball as anybody.

Me too. I also wonder if a better debate surrounding the issues may have led to more support for the club/sisu.?
AND, the hostility towards people who did try anything was just **** ish because it merely made people defensive and less willing to properly manage anything.

ANYWAY, I do not think the march has done any harm at all. There's a principle at stake and throughout the game this would not have been lost. The FA got involved as the last thing they want is this sort of negative publicity about financial irregularities, club ownership, etc. In addition I think it also focused minds at the Council as their policy of the Ricoh safeguarding leisure and jobs was in tatters. This, allied to just 300 diehards left prepared to follow the absurdity of Sixfields, will have made Fisher realise he's lost the argument. All in all, even at this late hour, I expect some sort of accommodation and deal. We'll see.

Did wonder how long Ricoh had signed up for. Just goes to show what a mess the whole thing is with everyone losing out. Oh well bring the season on and lets see how we go with the side we have.

The march did no harm, but it was a disappointment. Not enough fans from other clubs, showing we're 'the football family' (Yawn), for a start.

Not being covered on skysports news probably hurt much more than that.

Yip. More proof that we're not part of the football family. Would anybody actually notice if we just closed down and went away....?

I did read a direct quote from their PR Director when they agreed the deal that they were more concerned with it being used as a concert/entertainment venue and they would have sponsored the venue football club or not (although undoubtedly they get a benefit from the club playing there with it being mentioned in media). In terms of brand imagethough CCFC aren't exactly something to be connected to at this moment in time.
