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

No-one 'immune' in Sky Blues restructure

Although Andy Thorn stated in the wake of Coventry City's relegation from the Championship that he has been asked to remain as manager next season, a club statement, issued just hours after the Sky Blues' fate was sealed, has promised a 'major review and restructure' of all aspects of the operation.

The statement, which can be read here, says that 'not one part of the club will be immune' as the review looks to continue what acting chief executive Tim Fisher calls a 'process of recovery' which began at the turn of the year.

After the unedifying sight of the club's security personnel battling with their own supporters as the Doncaster game came to an end, relations between supporters and the boardroom are at an all-time low.

The club statement lists the clubs who have dropped into the third tier and bounced back stronger over the past decade but Coventry City seem a long way from being able to 'do a Norwich' next season.

Most Villans will laugh. I won't. I might not particularly care about Cov, but I suppose I'm young enough to not get the hate. I've said for a decade it's about time the Midlands took over from London in terms of derbies so what are the odds on you working your way back lads? Get in the Prem, and then give us 6 points - not that difficult surely? :-)

I'd say if we are going to play Villa in the near future it will only be in the cups or if you come down. The Sky Blues are a long way from the Prem at present.

Well buck up then Wol, and rebound! Seriously I think every club in the Mids would get taken more seriously if we could rival the bloody London derbies. Arsenal v Spurs, Man U v Liverpool (lol) Palace v Fulham etc. Let's get our share!
