CCFC: so much talk and so little action

Coventry City may be 4/1 outsiders to beat West Ham United at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday afternoon but the return to Championship action will be a blessing in disguise for Sky Blues' supporters after an international break filled with meaningless talk from people on the fringes of the club.

Leonard Brody has been filling the pages of the Coventry Telegraph this past week but little of what the former director has had to say seems to stand up to much scrutiny or need to be taken too seriously.

Neither unfortunately do the comments of Councillor John Mutton about the current club board and the 'loss of 10,000 fans' during their reign.

City's attendances in the Ricoh Arena averaged 21,301 in the first season at the new stadium, 2005/06, a far cry from the 27,000 that Mr Mutton claims. Every subsequent season has seen that figure reduce to the current low.

SISU are firmly to blame for that but they did not inherit a club filling their stadium and in a rosy financial position. The juggernaut was out of control before then and the current owners have been unable to stop it but sadly for City die-hards we have been cursed with bad leadership for many, many years.

At least the 90 minutes on the pitch on Saturday holds out the hope, however small, of a result to put smiles on our faces.
