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

The Sky Blue decade: 2006

Year In Brief: City started the year with a home win over Wolves and for the next few months the Ricoh Arena really began to feel like home.

An excellent run of form saw the Sky Blues end the campaign in 8th place and hopes were high for the new season.

The sale of Gary McSheffrey soured the mood however although form held up fairly well until December when a run of defeats put the pressure on Micky Adams.

High Point: A 6-1 win against Derby was followed by an FA Cup tie with Middlesbrough which attracted over 28,000 to the new stadium and in which City were good value for a draw against their Premier League opponents.

Low Point: December's trip to The Hawthorns saw the Sky Blues hammered 5-0 by West Brom and marked the beginning of the end for Micky Adams.

Brief Encounter: Adams surprised the football world by signing Dennis Wise, a player he had previously bombed out of Leicester.

The veteran midfielder enjoyed an Indian summer at the Ricoh, scoring 6 goals in 13 games and creating plenty of others.

Quote Unquote: 'I think I have helped this football club take big strides over the last couple of years, but if the fans want to get rid of Micky Adams then that's the quick way of doing it,' the City boss responds to criticism of his substitutions in the game against Barnsley in October.

Wayne Andrews had proved Adams right by scoring within seconds of arriving on the pitch.
