Coventry – UNITED.

Not many clubs in the English Football League can say they started the season on minus ten points, under a strict transfer embargo and playing their ‘home’ games 35 miles away from the city they belong. For Coventry City, this has been the reality.

Despite the footballing gods overlooking the Sky Blues, the band of young, fearless players have shown how competent they are against the more settled outfits in the league such as Preston and Wolves.

The confidence that has followed a succession of impressive, consistent results, coupled with the positive style of play Steven Pressley has instilled means Coventry now lie 11th in League One with a genuine chance of making a play off position.

Regrettably, due to the divisive nature of Coventry’s current situation, passion among supporters has been seen to overflow into hostility towards each other.

The club has a proud history, and nobody is content with the off  field dealings as they stand. However we do have a lot to celebrate on the field and this is what must take the limelight.

Petty playground arguments about who is a bigger fan due to the amount of away games they’ve been to needs to stop; all forms of hostility needs to be put to one side. There is a squad of young lads performing week in week out under great adversity showing pride to wear the shirt. They need our support. We are all united by one fact, the fact we are Sky Blue and we love our football club.

Now is our time to show it.
