SH!T ??....Have you lost at Chasetown yet during your tumble from grace ? You will know what Sh1t is when that happens  
Every sympathy with you otherwise regards all the off field stuff you have endured.
Do your fans hold anyone person in particular to blame for your meteoric descent ?


All about the owners mate, very well documented and very long.

This together with being one of the most unsuccessful clubs in the football leagues in last few decades has caused major apathy...

We still like to blame ITV Digital for going bust for starting our rot.

Agree with Bigdog, the police call themselves a "Police Service" well that's a joke, ordinary football fans are a pain to them were all holigans wanting to fight cause trouble. Don't get me started on how they deal with general burglary etc, from experience you have to be happy with just getting an incident number so you can claim on insurance but some weeks ago Look Norh had a report of some rare wild flower growing on the roadside that may get picked and there are the police reporting that they look upon this as a high rate crime.

So who's fault is it all ..your current predicament ?

The problems really began back in the mid to late nineties when Cov endured a relatively successful period, the days of Atkinson/Strachan, Whelan, Keane, Dublin, Huckerby etc....

The debt was building as the club chucked bad money after bad in desperate attempts to retain Premiership status.....the relegation and the subsequent failure to return at the first attempt was the other catalyst for disaster.  The new ground was financed and planned with Premiership football in mind obviously.....poor performances saw the crowds drift from 20/25,000 down to below 17/18k and it's been a downward spiral.

Sisu rescued us from administration but have systematically killed the club over the last 5 years, falling out with the council (who owned The Ricoh) and other partners thus driving us into isolation off the pitch.  This together with very limited funding, asset stripping and poor footballing decisions and you have the modern day Coventry City.....I could go on and on.

It's a club with passionate fans, a good away following and yes it's a proper footballing City.....Jimmy Hill must be turning in his grave.

Did I hear the other day that Coventry haven't finished in the Top 6 of any Division for something like the last 40 years?

Correct.

Most don't know that but it's a shocking fact.

Can't see families being an issue mingaling together, the attitude of it not being able to work just proves why rugby fans and players turn their noses up at football

It's pretty obvious to me that this is down to the police, perhaps Kristine could post to put everybody's mind at rest?
