Bazza 3 years
Trev 5 years
Bruce 6 years
McLeish 4 years
Hughton 1 year
Clark 2 years
Rowett 2 years
Zola 4 months
'Arry 5 months
Cotterill 5 months
Monk 15 months
Clotet 13 months

It's all about stability with them innit?  ;)


Bet ours doesn't look great when it's written down like that.


You are right, 1993-2020 we have had twelve permanent managers. They have had thirteen.

Yeah, but at least Huddersfield only need to win one match to go above Blues, whereas Luton needed about 3 wins.

Still extremely unlikely that they will go down.

very true.
I can't see them dropping, either. They're lucky that there's always two teams you know will drop and another one, or two, that are dire.
They had a few results go their way last round of games, though.
Without checking exact results, off the top of my head they could have been forth bottom a point, or two, above Hull, after loss at Stoke.

We're understandably unhappy about the fact that before yesterday we had gone 10 games without a win, but until I checked I hadn't realised that SHA are 11 league games without a win and counting.

It's bad enough for that kind of run to happen in the top flight but when it happens against teams like Reading, Millwall and QPR you know you're shit!

Just a shame so many of them were draws or they'd be seriously sweating by now.

Yes still their Facebook hordes seem far more concerned about our form.

They were more obsessed with Grealish diving and our relegation battle. Funniest thing I read was a Blues fan doing an ode claiming we were unhappy with our faux success and how we wished we were more like Blues!
Just seen a Birmingham Mail post on Facebook about rats in Birmingham. A Blues fan said remember you never more than five feet away from a Villa fan in the city. I thought there were no Villa in Brum? Make your minds up!

As opposed to never being less than 500 feet from a nose.

If and or when we are next in the same division as them and Cov, interesting to see what ticket allocation we get for the Sty.
Can you imagine playing Cov. They give us 2,000 tickets and they only have 5,000 fans

I can’t see away allocations of any great significance being made available to any team in any division for the foreseeable future.

If we do have to play them again next season the police will be desperate to get that done and dusted whist no crowds can go.

I have never encountered one of these mythical creatures you call 'Coventry fans', what are they like?

(I have known one, but he had special needs and was a lovely guy, so never ventured into football talk.)

I managed a few betting shops in Coventry occasionally when I was on the relief circuit. In my (admittedly limited) experience of them they don't like us but they do like talking about us.

There were a couple of kids at work who claimed to be either Man Utd or Man City, but when they started doing alright this season and drew the rags in the cup the mask slipped.
