The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

POOR Coven­try.What with play­ing at Northamp­ton and now be­ing de­ducted ten points, you’re tempted to think it can’t get any worse.

But just ask Portsmouth how bad it can get. Their first game in the bot­tom di­vi­sion and they end up get­ting beat 4-1.

Five years ago they won the FA Cup, now they’re 91st in the Football League – it’s a cruel game some­times.

Still, you’d rather be them than Coven­try right now. I just find it absolutely ridicu­lous that there’s a fan­tas­tic sta­dium sit­ting in Coven­try gath­er­ing dust.

The two groups are act­ing like big soft kids. Surely some­thing could have been done to reach an agree­ment be­fore now.

Like ev­ery­one else, I just thought it was brinkman­ship. I thought they’d get to­gether at the eleventh hour and thrash some­thing out.

But no. They’re both dig­ging their heels in and it could be the de­struc­tion of the club. How stupid can you get?

I don’t blame the fans if they don’t turn up at Northamp­ton. If I was one, I wouldn’t.
