It's the all important budget meeting this week as Chris Coleman and Coventry City chairman Ray Ranson meet to discuss the summer transfer kitty available for new signings at the Ricoh Arena.
Another lacklustre end of season for the Sky Blues could restrict the funds on offer for Coleman, having had a knock-on effect on season ticket sales and generally producing a downbeat atmosphere amongst supporters and in the city itself.
As for the chairman is he still convinced that the Welshman is the right man to implement his plans out on the pitch?
'I know what we need and I know the players I would like to bring in to help us,' Coleman told the Coventry Telegraph, identifying the absence of 'pace and power' in the side as an urgent priority and looking longingly at the kind of money spent by Nottingham Forest last summer and their current league position.
Whether being told that those players are out of his price range would see Coleman decide to call it a day remains to be seen.
However, while he remains a popular media figure his managerial reputation is surely now dependant on reviving the fortunes of his current club.
With two points needed from the last two games to improve on last season's total, the manager could not really walk away secure in the knowledge that he would walk into a better job.
Winger Michael McIndoe meanwhile believes that the Sky Blues are fighting a losing battle to get into the promised land, based on their current outlay on player.
Quoted on Wednesday he said: "You've got to understand the budget we're using, I'm not making excuses but if you look at our budget compared to the top 10 at the moment then there's a massive, dramatic difference."
