Countdown to Homelessness Part 2 – The Final Countdown?
Yet the owners and director of Coventry City FC remain hellbent on risking the future of our Club by continuing a Court Case which seems doomed to fail.
“I don't go for wasting time in negotiations.” said Joy. Apparently, she would much prefer to waste time in Court instead. There have now been enough judges to form a football team, ruling on various stages of the legal action.
Less than 3 months and just 7 home games remain. The sands of time are running out rapidly with no solution in sight. We can only hope that the Supreme Court reject the JR2 Application and that Sisu finally recognise that Enough is Enough.
Preferably, they will Sell Up & Go and let Coventry City Football Club thrive with new owners who actually give a damn!
Firstly, many thanks to John Fletcher and Maggie Johnson for "marking my homework", correcting mistakes, giving encouragement and constructive criticism.
I wish to express my warm gratitude to the Editor of the Coventry Telegraph / Coventry Live, Keith Perry, for allowing me to call upon the archives of our local paper. The team at the CT has reported the ongoing drama thoroughly and fairly and continues to do so. Most of the quotations in my work are sourced from articles written in their publications.
My deep appreciation also to Simon Gilbert, now of the BBC but formerly of the Coventry Telegraph, for being able to take guidance from his fantastic book “A Club Without A Home”. It is a volume that all Coventry City fans should read and tells the story up to early 2016 in far more detail, with a deeper history and with greater talent than I possess. Of course, Simon wrote many of the pieces in the CT that I have called upon.
Finally, I must stress that what I have written reflects solely my opinions and there is no implication that any of the above-mentioned persons would agree with any of the conclusions that I have drawn.
