Coventry City Rumours Abound But No News
It has been very quiet at the Ricoh since the end of the season with only a handful of actual stories. The vast majority of column inches have been devoted to rumours and recycled stories.
Since the end of the season the only real confirmed news that emerged are that Clingan, Platt and Harrison have left, Cranie is still having talks, SISU are having talks about part ownership of the stadium and the transfer embargo remains in place.
Not much to fill over eight weeks of back pages and website space.
We have seen rumours of players leaving/arriving despite the fact they can't. Add to that rumours of new investors, administration, off shore companies, player budgets plus a number of recycled stories and non-stories.
You have to feel a bit sorry for the sports writers at the Coventry Telegraph.
Today's headlines are a good example where but for the publishing of the fixture list, we are left with a story about how the players believe they should be promoted.
This is firstly patronising to the fans, as this should go without saying, players should go out with the attitude of trying to win every game and be aiming for promotion.
Secondly as the players are still on holiday for a few weeks yet, how can AT state this unless he has phoned every one of them and got their response, which is not the case stated in the article.
As I said rumours abound but facts are as thin on the ground as Carl Baker Goals!
