I have never encountered one of these mythical creatures you call 'Coventry fans', what are they like?

(I have known one, but he had special needs and was a lovely guy, so never ventured into football talk.)

They were bouncung through London Bridge October a year back after we'd been at Millwall. Singing about us.

Were they top lads, or just pavement dancers?

They were cocks shouting their heads off about a club they'd not played in nearly 2 decades after beating Charlton I assume. Even the Dingles that were there looked embarrassed.

I have. A very large group indeed of mainly skinheads smashing glass bottles and goading innocent fans. The police arrived promptly and cordoned them off. Unfortunately I got stuck with them. Asked to be let out and was refused. Pulled my jacket zip down a touch to show the Villa shirt I was wearing. So relieved when he said, "Go on, mate." and lowered his baton so I could get away from them. They were absolutely hell bent on causing a fracas. Seriously scared.

There was one in my course in Uni. He was called Derek, from Waterford and of East Asian descent so randomly had chosen Coventry as his team. He was a nice lad if a bit of a wimp but still professed to hating the Villa.

They sound charming! Like the infected in 28 Days Later, but with a talent for hiding.

Birmingham slum spillover basically.  Said just in case any of them happen across this as it will annoy them.  Another club who all of a sudden find a few fans when there’s relative glory to be had.  They’re still seething about 2001.

Was it really 2001?!

When we sang "We'll meet again" I didn't think it'd take 20 years and only then because we've got one of the shittest teams in our history!!!

I wonder what the odds are that they'll all suddenly forget their boycott for a game against us*


*If crowds are allowed back by then

**we won't be playing them anyway so we won't find out

Get one over on Villa?

Why is he so bothered about the rivalry anyway?

He's been trying to wash his deformed, webbed hands of that pathetic club for ages, but nobody wants to know.



Thankfully, a few months after this, a Chinese hairdresser did want to know.
