Is Andy Thorn the only optimist at Coventry City these days ?
AT last the transfer embargo has been lifted and Andy Thorn has gone all excited and frothing at the mouth at all the money he can now go out and spend.
But hang on a minute isn't our club in a financial mess ? With talk of liquidation ?
And where's the money coming from as one minute we haven't got a penny to our name and the next it says in the paper Andy has been given a budget to use.
You just don't know who to believe anymore in fact we'd get more truth from a politician as stories change on a daily basis.
What that budget probably means is Andy can sell some players and any spare cash can then be used to go bargain shopping in footballs equivalent to Poundland.
I hope I've got it totally wrong and Andy can spend without selling but you do get cynical and bitter when you support the City for as long as I have it does have that affect on me now.
Today I read about our top Physio leaving to go to Bristol City and that along with Harrison gone as well your waiting to see who's next out of the Ricoh door as every week someone is on his bike and pedalling fast out of Coventry.
But you have to admire Andy Thorns optimism as he remains so upbeat all the time so much so it makes you think he may be on something but whatever it is I bet us long suffering fans wouldn't mind some of it !
I got a call last week from the Ricoh and I was asked was I going to renew my season ticket for the coming campaign ? I replied I am going to wait and see what happens first but don't worry as I will always follow the team no matter where they end up.
See what I mean I'm not just cynical but nervous as well as who really knows what's going to happen between now and the new season ? But it's good to see Sky Blue Kev back amongst us again as I thought he'd defected to the Villa or somewhere !
