Micky deserves a warm welcome

Micky deserves a warm welcome

Ex-Coventry City manager Micky Adams makes his first return to the Ricoh Arena on Saturday as the current number two to Colchester United boss Geraint Williams and deserves a decent hand from the crowd.

Adams' reign as Sky Blues boss ended slightly shambolically as his team fell apart last December and January, conceding 21 goals in 8 games and bowing out of the FA Cup at home to Bristol City.

That should not colour however the crucial role he played in the club's fortunes after taking over from Peter Reid in February 2005.

Some quick-fix signings, getting the best out of Stern John and Dele Adebola and revitalising Gary McSheffrey's career by handing him a role as an attacking left-sided midfielder kept us in the Championship that season and culminated in the never-to-be-forgotten send-off to Highfield Road when Derby were despatched 6-1.

The following season, working under tight financial conditions, Adams pulled a couple of rabbits out of the hat with Dennis Wise and Don Hutchison and led the side to an excellent 8th-place finish.

It all went a bit wrong after that but Adams left the club in a better position than he found it on-the-pitch.

Off it, who knows if there would have been a club if we had been relegated from the Championship ahead of the move to the new stadium.
