So, is the the end for the Sky Blues? Bad bad times. Hard to tell what is truth and what is fiction these days, as a fan? It's ragin'

Either way it will be the critical point we have all been waiting for, either SISU will pay up and prove they are interested in the club, or they let the club fold. Personally, I have had enough of their BS and would happily support a new Coventry City, even if it was in the Ryman league.

I'm the other way, I probably will bin footy entirely if we go but agree SISU are totally at fault (as well as a lot of the sheep brigade in our fan base, proper head in the sand types). This sh1t has been coming like a slow freight train for at least 3 years now, we made the fatal mistake of not accepting admin at any point, we could have been in a 3rd year of a new build by now.

I think we are the perfect example of why supports need to be protect against the fact anybody can buy a football team, it was all promises and fake smiles when they took over and the club has been passed about the SISU board room like a toy for them all the play with, now the toy needs some attention and some cash, it is likely they will chuck us in the bin......makes me sick! The FA needs to sort this kind of thing out, or the English football leagues are going to be a wasteland of ruined teams by bad owners.

From what I have heard, SISU do have the cash but they are just dragging it all out to ruin ACL, then SISU will feast on their bodies and start buying up bits of the Ricoh.....not an ethical business plan, but if they keep giving Robins transfer funds I might forget some of the bad stuff......for a little while.

On the positive side, an excellent 5-1 win today, tricky away game next at Doncaster.....might try and buy an away ticket for that.

disgraceful behaviour from the bitter blues at wastelands, a hefty fine and points deduction would be fullly deserved

2-0 win at home to Burnley at the weekend left us in ninth, one point off the Play-offs. :D

They turn down that offer and now want to do this:

The will only work as a temporary home whilst other sites are found in Coventry for the construction of a new Stadium. Hopefully the Council and ACL will see sense that having two large stadiums in the city and one being empty is not a good thing.

Way to go, Bradford City! Awesome result. Wonder who they will get in the Semi-final? And what chance of an appearance in next seaons Europa Cup?!! They've been in Europe before, so would be great to see them back there. The Arsy game will hopefully be the springboard they need to progress to League One.

And it appears they have also been reinstated to the FA Cup. Can they make it a triple success by the end of the season? FIngers crossed! :D
