FOURTH in the League, That's Fourth in the League just in case you didn't get it the first time. Dizzy heights indeed for the Sky Blues.
A big away following to bramall lane should set things up nicely for the visit of dirty leeds, this weekend. They have sold their allocation of 6,000 tickets and, by all accounts are asking for more.
Wouldn't it be nice to get a decent home turn out again, there is nothing better than a big away support and a good home crowd, to get the atmosphere going inside the Ricoh Arena Stadium.
The Cardiff game was a point in fact, with a cracking atmosphere about the place. There is plenty to shout about too, with 4 wins and only 1 defeat in our last 6 games, it has all the credentials to be another cracking tie.
Aidy has got the team working for each other and has turned a pretty solid back four, into an excellent well drilled unit, with no shortage of strength, power and ability.
So if you haven't been for a while, go and buy your tickets folks, get up the Ricoh next week and see what you think, in the words of Delia Smith:
"Where are you?"
"Let's be havin you"
COVENTRY CITY super sub Jordan Clarke has revealed he was close to asking for a loan move until he took advice from his agent - Sky Blues legend Cyrille Regis.
WIGAN Athletic boss Roberto Martinez has quashed reports that Chris Kirkland may be leaving the club.
With the biggest talent in England, recently changing his mind about where his future lies, and deciding to sign a lucrative new contract with his current club. Following, it would appear, some guarantees as to the future direction of the club, my mind immediately turned to arguably the biggest asset we have at Coventry City, and the possibility of a U-turn from him and his advisers.
I would imagine that Kieran Westwood's main reason for not signing a new contract with our club was his desire to play at the top level of the English Game, in the Premiership.
I don't want to start counting my chickens yet, but with the leaps and bounds made by the Sky Blues so far this season, it is a possibility, however small at the moment, that we are heading in that direction.
We have played some of the best teams in the Championship, and have not been found wanting against any of them and, if you look at the way Cardiff ripped apart Leeds 4 - 0, and the fact that we at least deserved a draw against them, the progress has been outstanding in recent weeks.
Let's all hope it continues and that Westwood has a change of heart and decides to give us, and Aidy, at least another couple of years, to achieve his, and all our dreams, of a chance to ply his trade in the Premiership.
