Micky: McSheffrey sale was crucial

Micky: McSheffrey sale was crucial

Sacked Coventry City manager Micky Adams has admitted that the sale of Gary McSheffrey to Birmingham City in August did affect his side's season.

He said: 'The sale of Gary McSheffrey was a big turning point for everybody because he is a quality player and you can't replace quality players that easily.'

He added however: 'I'm not here to throw stones at people because I've got too much respect for everyone at the club, including the chairman and the board.

'I have been supported as well as I could have been.'

he's got a point you cannot sell your best players to clubs in the same division and expect to do well.

Fletcher admitted when having breakfast with McSheffrey this year befores the Cardiff away match, Gary 'looked straight through him'. He had already made his mind up to go (undoubtedly with some persuasion from his agent) and had effectively lost interest in the club. The only possible way to keep him was to increase his wages significantly and unbalance the structure at the club. For this reason, Adams can carry little of the blame for his sale. Fletcher also stated that the business side was with the board, and the playing side with Mickey. He was responsible for selecting the transfer targets, fitting them into the team and motivating them. In this he failed! I do not dislike Adams, but he was given as much opportunity as any previous manager and it did not work out. It is time for a new Manager to come in and cast a fresh pair of eyes over certain members of the squad who do not seem to play for the club, whoever is in charge!!

We also seem to forget that we were doing ok after McSheffrey went, I don't think that was the problem, I do wonder if Hughes being sack as Captain was, or was it at first down to bad luck and then it got out of hand.
