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

Aidy knows his history!

Coventry City's FA Cup winning team of 1987 was generally thought to be greater than the sum of its parts, John Sillett and George Curtis forging a formidable spirit among a group of players who could be fairly described as journeymen.

The latest in a long line of managers trying to give Sky Blues fans another memorable occasion to remember is Aidy Boothroyd and the new boss has been talking about the achievements of the boys of 87.

'They had steel and they had guile,' he said, quoted in the Coventry Telegraph.

'They scored goals and they kept clean sheets.'

Boothroyd has obviously been well-informed about his new charges and has identified pretty quickly the problems that hampered City last season.

'We haven't got anyone who can score any goals at the moment and we haven't really got any pace in wide areas.'

With a solid spine in place, comprising of Westwood, McPake, Wood, Clingan, Deegan and Gunnarsson, it is the wide areas, both full-backs and wingers and up front where the Sky Blues are lacking and where Boothroyd is likely to direct his transfer funds over the summer.
