Our pitch is bigger than yours!

Coventry City now have the largest pitch in the Championship after the Ricoh Arena playing surface was extended in length by five metres.

It now measures 105m x 68.6m and boss Iain Dowie told the club website: 'Extending the size should allow the players to play to our system as well as making them fitter.'

Surely buying better players would be a much easier alternative than making the pitch longer than anything the opposition have to put up with.
