Season in quotes - December

'The sword of Damocles has been hanging for a little while now.

'When I came to the club, I thought it would be a very positive situation where we'd have quite a sizeable amount of money to spend. It hasn't quite turned out like that,'
- Iain Dowie speaks to Radio 5 Live after City file their notice of intent to go into administration.

'I'm told it's a sleeping giant and a good opportunity so we are talking,' - Greek billionaire Alki David emerges from nowhere as a potential saviour and returns there just as quickly.

'The successful conclusion of this transaction ensures our future is secure and the threat of administration is avoided,' - the bare facts of the Ray Ranson-led takeover as published on the official club website barely hint at the relief felt by Sky Blues' fans.

'This is a very exciting day in the long, proud history of Coventry City Football Club,' - says the man who refused to give up on the club, outgoing chairman Joe Elliott.

'The two goals are a joke and when you look at the goals at Blackpool on Saturday they are poor from our point of view.

'We had a points tally in mind for this period but that has probably gone out of the window now,'
- Dowie starts to feel the heat following the Boxing Day defeat by Crystal Palace.
