The trains were stopping at Bordesley tonight for this. I even saw two Exeter supporters getting off.

Just in case anybody was interested.

At least they are away in the next round (Watford) Save our pitch.

True, but I'd forgotten about the Mighty Q trophy they play in... think they've got two games at ours in this.

The irony, the season we try and adopt a passing style of play, is the season we've two teams playing on the same pitch and it'll look like a paddy field by February.

I wonder if the groundsmam was consulted by Chairmam XuanDong?

Pleased for them, had a good start to the season.

It will be good for the local businesses aswell, like the puds who must struggle on non match days due to the area.

As a whole, heard they enjoying Brum, rearly does anyone say anything positive about our city

Had a glance at a Cov forum. The most common sentiment was that Stans is a proper ground, much better than the Ricoh. They enjoyed the experience. Some moans about turnstiles being too small, seats too flimsy, queues for refreshments too long. Couldn't disagree with any of that. Few comments about the surrounding area being a ghetto, but some yearned for a return to a city centre ground like Highfield Road.

The main thing is that the vast majority are respectful to us. That is refreshing.

I'd love it if we chose a specific Coventry match to go to en-masse to show them what a full Stans is actually like. I'm going to go to a couple of their games anway. Beats going shopping with Mrs.

They've got a home game on the 12th Oct. We've got the week off. England are away the night before.
Luckily, the amount of heroin I use is harmless. I inject about once a month on a purely recreational basis. Fine. But what about other people less stable, less educated, less middle-class than me? Builders or blacks for example. If you're one of those, my advice to you is leave well alone. Good luck.

Having been at uni in Cov in the late 90's and seeing what the area the old stadium was in, I would've thought it was like being back at home for them....
Old MacDonald had a farm. EU, EU... Oh.

Very melodramatic!
