All quiet = good news for Sky Blues

All quiet = good news for Sky Blues

Coventry City have enjoyed a good week on and off the field, rebuffing any interest in their star players on transfer deadline day and completing the deal for James McPake to add to the earlier signing of David Bell from Norwich, and earning a thoroughly deserved win over league leaders Wolves on Saturday to move them onto the 40-point mark.

Chris Coleman seems to be working in harmony with his chairman and his signings are gradually becoming the backbone of the Sky Blues side.

Promotion back to the top-flight is still a way off of course but comparing the current situation to that of one year ago shows the progress that has been made.

Having gone through a traumatic takeover which went right down to the wire, the Sky Blues sacked Iain Dowie after a 1-0 defeat at Preston on February 9th, leaving them rudderless for the upcoming FA Cup clash with West Brom, which the Baggies won at a canter.

In contrast, City are enjoying a smooth build-up to the tie against Blackburn this weekend and are leaving the tag of crisis club to the likes of Southampton and Charlton at the foot of the table.
