SO, another transfer embargo hits the City, which for a club that went almost 12 months without signing 1 outfield player, is hardly going to be the ruination of our club, but why all the words of rhetoric from Tim "trust me" Fisher?
That's two years on the trot that we they have been late producing accounts, with the excuse being: "As part of the accounts submission process then we have to be able to show committed funding out for the next financial year and, at this stage, we could not do this as we, the board, are still in the process of agreeing and negotiating budgets with the owner."
"There is nothing untoward about this and it is perfectly normal to be negotiating funding with the owner".
Or, it could mean: we don't really want to waste any more money on this club, we have sold most of the assets so we are looking to get out as soon as possible, going into administration at the earliest opportunity, with relegation pretty much guaranteed.
On the playing side:
10 straight away defeats is enough to explain to any doubter that we are in the mire, but, we did go through the 1999/2000 season without an away win and managed to finish 14th in the Premiership that season. The big difference being that our home form was the 6th best in the league that year and we also had a certain Mr R Keane up front.
Let's hope we can keep up our winning form at home in the immediate future, to at least give us a slim chance of staying in the Championship, with or without the backing of SISU!
VIRUS victim Andy Thorn spent last night at the Ricoh Arena Hotel because he was too ill to drive home after being rushed to hospital for tests, it has been revealed.
COVENTRY CITY have been placed under a transfer embargo after failing to file their accounts on time.
SHOULD Coventry City perform the gargantuan task of maintaining their Championship status this season, there is no doubt that it will represent one of the flukiest survival battles ever witnessed.
That will be of little bother to any Sky Blue fans of course. We are Coventry City. Staying up is what we do. The way in which we go about achieving this is of little importance, all that matters is the end result.
The news that Portsmouth may lack the financial capabilities to continue functioning until the end of the season was met with mixed emotions.
In fact, no, that is a lie. Obviously it is sad to see the potential demise of a well-respected football club, however all that concerns me at present is the potential ramifications for the Sky Blues.
ANDY Thorn is hoping that Jermaine Beckford doesn't come back to haunt him when Coventry City head up the M69 looking for their first away win of the season.
WATCHING Ben Turner put in a colossal performance for Cardiff in the Carling Cup final certainly made you wonder where Coventry City would be in the league if he was still at the club today.
