Vital view: City can profit from CCC chaos

Vital view: City can profit from CCC chaos

It's been a week of chaos in the Championship, kick-started on Sunday by Sheffield Wednesday parting company with Brian Laws.

He has been followed off the managerial merry-go-round by Jim Magilton at Queens Park Rangers and, surprisingly, Brendan Rodgers, axed by Reading just a few months after they lured him away from Watford.

Not that Rodgers would have been better off at Vicarage Road judging by the headlines generated there this week where boardroom turmoil and financial problems mean administration remains a real danger.

Elsewhere, Plymouth have had a transfer embargo placed upon them while Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony issued a lengthy statement detailing his achievements at the club, in response to recent criticism.

In contrast it has been a quiet few days at the Ricoh Arena, Saturday's win over Peterborough and Freddy Eastwood's goals in particular lifting the spirits among fans.

As always it all depends on results of course but with the transfer window coming up, City have a chance to make some further progress with their squad and back Chris Coleman, giving out a clear signal that he is the man in charge for the foreseeable future.

Continuity at this stage could benefit the Sky Blues at a time when many of their rivals in the league are going through transtional times.
