    SISU won't get away with things here like they did with Higgs.

    I think we'll now see just how much of a bluff it was about building a new ground.

    Ann Lucas is a liar and cannot be trusted. She would stand down if she had any integrity.

    Steven Pressley's been given the boot following Coventry's particularly poor run: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/31587140

    He's paid the price of the parent company starving the team of funds. If he can't afford decent players he's not got much chance.

    That said, I've seen plenty of very good local players that would love to play for City. - Maybe the answer would be to go to part-time, but gifted, local players?

    How can anyone take these clowns seriously? They've told lie after lie. Waste of space!

    The sooner they go the better.

    The new train service for the Ricoh has a capacity for 75 people an hour. No good for Wasps games, but from what I've been hearing from Coventry City fans over the last couple of years, 75 is more than enough!

    It's shameful and looks to being a waste of money.

    Rolling stock is expensive and isn't held back in reserve these days, and this was known at the outset.

    We were sold on the idea of the station at the outset (presumably to remove some of the objections about the Ricoh) and then let down. Subsequently we have now been given a station that is virtually useless for bringing people in and out of events.

    This whole thing stinks!

    It stinks a lot! What kind of idiot builds a stadium and fails to provide for adequate transport? I remember knocking round Old Trafford on a Saturday afternoon a few years ago, and was impressed that the stadium had its own dedicated train station that could deal with trains disgorging hundreds of fans every few minutes.

    Its another unbelievable joke.. 13.5 million to revamp the line and now the trains will be too small to carry more than 75 passengers to the Richo-and a station platform which is unsafe.
    It would have been cheaper to provide a 35 seater coach.
    In the same copy of Coventry telegraph there was a suggestion about using a regular canal barge which stops at Longford, quite near the arena.

    An amazing score for CCFC, the team's best result for a couple of decades apparently: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/35509795

    Well, I live in the shadow of the Ricoh arena and I didn't hear any cheering...
