    Coventry City Community Day

    This is what CCFC did. They gave out vouchers to the schools, which had to be filled in with contact details to claim the free ticket. This ends up with more records in the "supporter database" so more promotion/marketing can be directed at a bigger audience. Simply having a free for all in terms of attendance will only work for one week (and that's only if you get the additional benefit of extra spending e.g food/merchandise)

    Hosting promoters not wanting to miss out on one of the best supported teams travelling to their clubs i would imagine. Bees always take a large contingent of fans, and if there are just a handful of meetings for a side with the Coventry name, I guess they think we will travel in even larger numbers than usual
  5. Thats still a damn sight more than we currently are

    I'm not sure how you read that from PhilfromCov's comments Speedibee, but that isn't what hes saying at all. I agree with him. We have a lifeline, but now we have to make the most of it. We need a solid plan to either get back to Brandon, or a new stadium, rather than just limping along at Leicester, with crowds dwinling, and then the plug gets pulled due to a lack of finances. Save Coventry Speedway, should be attempting to put more pressure on all sides to see what the plan is

    If the future is clear, presumably we have a date for returning to Brandon? Until we're back home, I'd suggest the future is anything but clear

    I too am sceptical about the move working, however, it has at least given us a chance. As I'd said before, the cost of leasing the facilities and track, weighed in with a potentially reduced crowd doesn't make sense if it's only a short term measure. I appreciate that they would be running at a loss if they were to ride away meetings only at the start of the year, but they would then make up for it later in the season, with regular crowds at Brandon. I personally feel that this news isnt yet cause to celebrate. We need a stated plan/timeline on how we'll get back to Brandon, without that, there could be fans that drift away

    If it was only going to be for a few weeks, surely it would make better sense to just ride away meetings at the start of the season, similar to Belle Vue this year. If Horton has the main lease at Brandon, it amkes sense to run his home meetings there, and then he doesnt have to worry about the cost of sub letting the track at Leicester, and fans potentially not travelling

    I agree with SCB. Why go to the lengths of signing rioders etc. Both sides had the perfect get out at the end of last season. They could've walked away saying they couldn't agree a deal and that wouldve been that. Something is going on, i just cant work out what it is

    Our only hope at the minute is Sandhu taking back the ownership of the speedway team, the lease and running it all himself.

    You don't actually believe that do you? It's an awful paper in all honesty. Their speedway coverage is only so good because of Dave Rowe

    Very crass comment, especially from someone who was so critical of Shovlar a few pages back. In my eyes this is a bigger piece of trolling than anything he said

    Honestly didn't see this coming! Fantastic news, although i'm still wary of any unforeseen holdups

    I really don't understand the doom and gloom over this team. Comparing it to an "Elite League" team, it doesnt look great, but we aren't in that world any more. In Bates/Sarjeant and Kerr we should have the best two reserves in the league all season, and looking at what other reserves are likely to be signed, they should clean up, and then be full of confidence if/when they move into the main body of the team. I'm quite optimistic for this teams chances.... as long as the stadium issue is sorted
