    Cheers Stagger. I'm not one of these who believe we have a right to be a Premier League team... we are where we are because that's where we deserve to be. But certainly we should be looking at the championship as where we need to set our sights on.

    This is a huge game. The hardcore fans are always there, but the 'day trippers' probably haven't got the stomach for another year in the 4th division if we don't make it today. And we have built up a reasonably talented young squad, which will likely get picked off by other teams if we don't make it up today.

    There were only 26000 at the Rotherham vs Shrewsbury game yesterday. There's 37000 city fans alone today, which says something about how far we have dropped, and where we should be aiming for.

    Highfield Road.... yes. Should never have left. It's never been the same since we left. I've found myself going up less and less, and increasingly found myself going to watch matches in Italy and other countries. I can honestly say it's nothing to do with our league position or quality. I still enjoy away matches. But the erosion of the "matchday experience" due to the move to the Ricoh Arena has had a massive effect for me, and once you get out the habit of going every week it's hard to get that back.

    It looked comfortable in the end. But football is won (and lost) on such small margins. If our centre back hadn't curled in the best goal he's ever likely to score, we could be in a penalty shoot out at the moment. Or it could have gone the other way and we could have lost.

    I don't like to give it all the.... "we've been through so much...". At least we've tasted the glory days of being in the top division for many years, albeit struggling most of that time. But it's been a rough ride supporting city and there was a definite lump in my throat at the final whistle. Whatever I think of football nowadays, you can't undo 25 years of passion. Hopefully build some momentum as a club and push for promotion next season.

    Play Up Sky Blues

    Really pleased for you Travs. Always had a soft spot for Coventry City after the classic 1987 FA cup final against the hot spuds.

    Never a dull moment at ER. Except during games.

    I predicted 0-0 in the work competition, so that didn't go too well.
