Coventry City Football Club

Carrying on the theme of being proud to be from Coventry, I'm also proud of our football club. They were the 3rd longest club in the Premiership but sadly got relegated several years ago. It's easy to give up and die, but CCFC carried on their dreams and have opened the new Ricoh Arena. It's won the hearts and minds of the fans and it seems the club are going from strenght to strenght as they have just signed a new 5 year deal with Puma.

On top of that Michael Doyle is staying, even though he could have gone on a free transfer - now that shows faith in CCFC. Lets hope we finish in the top half of the table.

*From :
Coventry City midfielder Michael Doyle has signed a new two-year contract, with an option for a further year.
The 24-year-old could have left the Sky Blues on a Bosman free transfer this summer, and his decision to stay has delighted manager Micky Adams.
"It was no secret that I wanted to keep Michael at the club as he is an integral part of my plans," he said.
"There isn't a player in the league who can match him in terms of work-rate and at only 24, he has years ahead of him."
Doyle said: "It wasn't a hard decision to sign. We've shown this season we can compete with anyone at this level."


  1. I was told this by a lad who attends a youth club I work at.

    RICOH stands for Relegation is Cov's Only Hope


  2. I refuse to believe it's true!

    I'm the optimist.
