Championship: Familiar frustrations for Rams fans

Coventry City's mysterious owners SISU came in for plenty of criticism recently after a transfer window that saw no-one coming in through the Ricoh Arena entrance door and promising youngster Conor Thomas loaned to Liverpool with a view to a permanent move in the summer.

The club's transfer policy is mirrored to a certain extent by that of Derby County's owners, whose perceived lack of investment in Nigel Clough's squad has led to protests in recent weeks after the Rams' slide down the table.

'We acknowledge the frustration and anger of some of the supporters,' said a club spokesman. 'We understand they want to see the team and the club performing better.
'We have a clear plan how we are going to run the club, we believe in this plan and we are sticking to it.

'We believe this plan gives Derby County the best chance of a stable and successful future even if we are currently experiencing some short-term pain.

'The ownership group remains committed to this club and will not deviate from the strategy which has put this club on a sound financial footing for the first time in decades.'

Words that sound fairly familiar to those coming out of the Ricoh Arena in recent weeks and proof if proof were needed that long-term plans in football are a hard sell when supporters of both Coventry City and Derby County can look just a short distance up the road and see Leicester City charging up the table, backed by wealthy owners.
