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

When Could City Go Back?

Slowly and tortuously, like a dripping tap, it may be but it does appear that Coventry City are edging closer to returning to the Ricoh Arena.

Having lost the court case against the city council and made the required payment to stadium owners ACL as instructed by the Football League the club seem to have little option but to talk about a deal to come back even if, as they have done, they continue to appeal the court decision.

It has already been confirmed that the agreement to play games at Sixfields can be broken mid-season so when would be a realistic time to do so given the negotiations that would be needed? The Sun published a story on Friday saying that 6 September was a possible date but that looks too soon.

Looking at the Sky Blues' fixtures perhaps the most appropriate time would be after the Walsall game at Sixfields on Saturday 29 November after which City are not at 'home' until 20 December when Fleetwood are the visitors (FA Cup 2nd round not withstanding).

Could it be home by Christmas? And how would people respond to their side playing in their home city but with much-disliked owners still in charge?

As ever there are still plenty of questions to answer.
