SADLY, THE SKY BLUES ARE SINKING RAPIDLY
COVENTRY sacking Russell Slade is like changing the pianist on the Titanic. It won’t make a blind bit of difference when it comes to avoiding the iceberg.
In fact, the collision has already happened and icy water is filling the bow.
For Mark Robins, the only task left is to stand on deck as the ship slips to the gloomy depths.
While owners Sisu remain at the helm, no manager has a hope. Not Slade. Not Robins. Not a dream team of Pep, Jose and Sir Alex.
The man in the dugout is irrelevant when the people upstairs refuse to invest, insult supporters with silence and engage in petty, unwinnable wars with local authorities.
Sisu, and Sisu alone, are responsible for the wretched performances, the falling gates, the now inevitable relegation to League Two.
And the worst thing is they don’t appear to even care.
They have been a stain on football and a cancer on Coventry. Sacking another manager won’t deflect from their negligence one iota.
