No moans at being sent to Coventry.

CAN you imagine Liverpool or Everton playing every home game at Old Trafford? Would you make a near 70-mile round trip to watch your side on supposedly their own turf while Anfield or Goodison lays dormant? And after a while, would you just pack it in and not bother? Such has been the situation for Coventry City supporters, who last season saw their club kicked out of Ricoh Arena and were made to traipse all the way to Northampton for their home games. A disgrace.

Needless to say, the fans weren't overly keen and voted with their feet, Coventry's average home league attendance just 2,287 last season - compared to almost 11,000 the previous campaign. Thankfully, though, sense has prevailed and Coventry are poised to return to their Ricoh home, a stadium that was only constructed in 2005. Not before time. The fans, the last people considered, have deserved better.
