Speaking about attendances.....

Sat Feb 10, 2018 7:19 pm

What magic formula have Coventry City come up with, I wonder? OK, they're riding fairly high in League 2, and people will turn up to support a team that is playing well, BUT it's still League 2, and their visitors today were Accrington Stanley (who you'd think wouldn't bring an army) - yet the attendance at the Ricoh was 28,343 :shock: :shock: :shock:

Or did the BBC get its figures wrong?

Heard something muttered on Sky Sports earlier about the club have made an agreement to play at the Ricoh for next season at least so maybe all out celebrating some stability.

Accepted, and I could understand 10,000, 12,000 or even 15,000 - this is League 2 with the visit of Accrington Stanley for heaven's sake! But 28,000 + ???

And they managed to lose 0-2 :lol: which is just the kind of thing we do in front of a full house.

Let us pause to appreciate the fact that 4 days before the biggest game in the clubs history, shrews have only shifted 9,000 tickets to Wembley.

Exeter have sold more and cov have sold 3 times that. Last time I wandered onto the shrews Twitter account there were tweets begging fans to go. :lol:
