'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Sky Blue decade: 2005

Year In Brief: Peter Reid lasted just a few days of 2005 before his short reign in charge was ended, Micky Adams, the popular choice to succeed him, duly getting the task of making sure City's new stadium was not christened with League One football.

That was achieved in spectacular style, a 6-2 win over Derby in the final fixture at Highfield Road leading to an outpouring of Sky Blue emotion.

City then moved to pastures new, fans and players alike getting used to the Ricoh Arena, a reality after years of talk.

High Point: The old and the new. Andy Whing netting the final goal at Highfield Road and Claus Jorgensen making history with the first strike at the new stadium.

Low Point: Not too many to be fair as Adams built a side that was hard to beat and capable of getting goals from the likes of Stern John and Gary McSheffrey, although results remained mixed in the second half of the year.

Brief Encounter: Shaun Goater made only a handful of appearances after signing on loan in March but his experience brought the best out of a number of players around him in the fight against relegation.

Quote Unquote: 'Tradition means nothing.

'It's about what you do tomorrow as a football club, not what you did yesterday,' Jimmy Hill urges City to make the most of the move to CV6.
