Coventry City & The Franchising Of London Wasps

For a couple of weeks or so, there was something approaching normality at The Ricoh Arena. After an absurd amount of time away, Coventry City Football Club was back home with a team that was performing reasonably well on the pitch, and all was as near as things have been at this basket-case of a…

Plus ça Change: The High Court Damning Of Coventry City

Plus ça Change: The High Court Damning Of Coventry City

When the verdict was delivered at the High Court in London earlier this week, it couldn’t have been done so in a more emphatic manner.

The Hedge Fund & The Football Club: A Year-Round Pantomime

The Hedge Fund & The Football Club: A Year-Round Pantomime
