Then there were nine for Sky Blues job

Then there were nine for Sky Blues job

Richard Shaw is one of nine people on the shortlist to become the next permanent manager of Coventry City with interviews set to take place this week against the backdrop of Sunday's home televised defeat at the hands of Stevenage in front of less than 10,000 spectators.

Another poor second-half display did for the Sky Blues and surely spelt the end of Shaw's own managerial ambitions, his comments afterwards that the players 'have been great and not given us a minute's problem' at odds with what fans have witnessed too often on the pitch both this season and in years past.

Few would dispute Shaw's assertion that the team needs 'a few nasty characters and a few generals' having lost the midfield battle comprehensively to a Stevenage side who defended deeper after the break and hit City well on the counter attack.

It's time for managers to point the finger. Too often Andy Thorn defended players who had let him down and Richard Shaw is now doing the same. Name names and get it out into the open.

agree whole heartedly that players should be named and shamed when performing poorly. Yesterday was a real low point and one thing stood out that they were not playing for Shaw. Murphy does not dominate, Edengule, Jennings and Kilbane were poor.

Sky Blues versus Blades

The curtain comes down on football at the Ricoh Arena for this season when Coventry City entertain Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon, the Sky Blues campaign now over but the Blades maintaining an outside chance of making the play-off places.

Last Saturday's defeat at Doncaster Rovers officially ended City`s own hopes but they will make it a hat-trick of home victories if they can take three points from Nigel Adkins side.
