Voice clip 1
Dave and Heather talk about chants and swearing at football grounds. They think it's a problem because it can influence children but they don't think there's anything that can be done about it - it's a sign of the times.
Alan Hartley, Machine tool salesman
Alan tries to describe the Coventry accent - it's not distinctive, but there are phrases that let you tell if a speaker is from the area.
Dave Jones, Retired policeman
Dave discusses changes to Coventry, good and bad - although he still loves his home town, he sees it affected by the violent age we live in.
Heather Taylor, Songwriter
Heather remembers how she was made to pronounce "th" clearly when she was a schoolgirl - and now it's a bugbear of hers when people say "fing".
Long description of interview: The group are all lifelong Sky Blues (Coventry City) fans and are understandably keen to talk about their football memories. Other hot topics include language, specifically swearing on and off the terraces, and why they think the Coventry accent isn't really an accent at all. They are all happy to talk about their backgrounds.
Recorded by: Amy Donnelly, Coventry And Warwickshire
