You can buy a Coventry v Blues half and half scarf from their club shop, I kid you not.

Does it say "Coventry" one end, and "City" the other?

Prepping for the inevitable merger.

They used to be called 'Coventry Singers'. If they merge with Small Heath may I suggest the name 'Coventry Mingers'

This is brilliant, two sets of mongs struggling to fill their allocations, one in their own ground, and having to get on the internet to create an atmosphere. About us. Who donít give a shit.

Both sets of fans will sing about us more than than they will their own teams which is great, we live in their heads. And in fairness, it's fucking spacious in there.

Listening to wm phone in after the games yesterday one vicious little nose phoned in complaining to franksy that blues never get any decisions because they are the blues. Also bemoaned that they had only played the milwall goal in the highlights post match. Franksy pointed out they were playing Cardiff. Then he went on about how they are in a relegation scrap despite being a fair few points away. They may know who they are but they revel in this underdog status bollocks.
Living in yardley you hear bollocks like this in the pub all the time. As shit as we are they still bring a smile to the face with their gritty shitness.

They getting excited over a 20,000 crowd, 2000 of which were Cardiff fans. And as usual lots of Blues posing on their from places like Rugeley, Northants and all sorts of places not in Brum. I suppose a lot of them could be people who moved out of the city but surely the same applies to a lot of our out of town support too - they forget about that though don't they.

Will (almost) be worth tuning into the commentary on WM for a few minutes to listen to them doing so. And laugh!

Almost of spacious as a half empty sty looks every week. I suppose Coventry's gates do serve to make Small Heath's look slightly more respectable.

Just looked at Cov's attendances at the Sty this year. I assume there's a boycott in place considering they're not doing too bad.

Imagine having to go there twice if they come up and are still groundsharing. It'd probably sell out with noses.

I understand the principle of a boycott but it is hardly a tough journey down the Cov Road form Coventry to Small Heath and back.
