    A great post.

    The problem at Coventry City seems to be too many ego’s pulling in different directions. This is hurting Coventry City and hindering their progress.

    Coventry’s Board of Directors need to work together, or else if they cannot they need to find a buyer who will buy the club outright and promise money for Andy Thorn to reinforce the side.

    If Coventry are still in this mess at Christmas, a drop to League 1 could well be inevitable.

    I disagree Adam, I think that while behind the scenes issues were certainly to blame for the last 2-3 years, this season we actually have a united board with a plan.

    Problem is of course that a vocal group of supporters disagree with the plan (to break even) and are creating another set of issues to be addressed.

    It’d be great if we could spend our way out like so many in this league, but I won’t complain about a board trying to make the club financially stable until this mythical white knight turns up.

    As always it’ll only be success on the pitch (and for a City fan that just means top half) that puts these things to bed.
