    Yeah, that is huge news, Mowbray is able to attract that kinda of player to league one. If (and it is a big if) he can play to even 25% of his PL form then Coventry are onto a winner. His fitness will be poor but brining him on for the last20/30 minutes or playing one half will bring a lot of quality to the side. Its only a one month contract so we need to see how he gets on.
    I suspect Mowbray has the bigger picture in mind and wants the younger players at the club to learn a thing or two whilst also generally raising the club's profile. Either way these are exciting times to be a City fan, and it's been a long time since I could say that.

    Technically this belongs here: Howard Kendall, former Everton player and manager who led them to the division one title, has died in the last hour. Two minute silences across English football grounds today.

    I have to say I was shocked when you guys signed him. Such a weight off of our shoulders when he left. He's simply failed at stepping up from league one (which he's quite good at judging by previous loan spells etc.)

    Yeah, Mowbray has the clout to convince "big names" to the club. Eagles will be more influential at the club. Blackpool came to the Ricoh to play for a point, they were very defensive. City played well but the final ball was not good enough. Kent and Murphy are quick but their inexperience shows. I think City can push for promotion and the glut of goals from Newcastle should help them forget about Armstrong and hopefully extend his loan.

    I live too far away to get to any games home or away but I have heard similar stories about the young loanees, very keen to take players on and try some fancy skills but not always aware of what's going on around them. A hopeful side effect of a 'big name' like Cole might be a few more bums on seats at home games even if only for a short while.

    The league is wide open, that much is clear, so if we can hang around the play-offs come the end of the season anything could happen.

    Are all games far for you ? Come on there must be something within a 20 mile radius

    I live near Dundee. The nearest league side is Carlisle which is still a good few hours by public transport from here, most others are a 5-6 hour round trip in best circumstances.

    Steve Evans is not a fit and proper person to be involved in football in my opinion. He is a convicted tax dodger and his touchline behaviour has on occasions been disgraceful. Neither is Mr Cellino. Barnet had some questionable people involved in the club many years ago but nowhere near as bad as these two.

    Thats what I was thinking two criminals involved with a club with the highest arrests of the Championship, is sort of like the perfect match.
