    Yes, it does seem to be a tad dodgy.

    The fans aren't happy and ACL and the Council are very quiet. I believe that ACL can still cause a lot of problems by refusing to accept the proposed VCA.

    What a bl**dy mess!

    Yes, it is a bit of a mess. The FA's got to approve the move, and Cov. & Northampton have got to sort out clashing fixtures as well.

    Apparently, Northampton are saying it's not "a done deal!"

    Questions have been asked in Parliament; but I doubt the government will do anything - it's not really their job to in this case.

    I agree Lex. However, there do seem to have been financial and managerial 'irregularities' going on and that ought invoke the wrath of the Football League and Companies House. - I won't be holding my breath...

    Yes, it does seem to be at that level, and not one of national interest.

    A new stadium is in the offing; but fans are still being kept in the dark:

    23,000 seater stadium? - About 20,000 seats too many I reckon.

    Like most of the fans, I don't believe it. It's all bluff and bluster.

    Well, I can't see many wanting to work with SISU, they haven't exactly demonstrated much trustworthiness to date.

    I also can't realistically see the site at Exhall being used. There are far too many access issues to my mind.

    Fans have set a petition up to keep the Sky Blues in Coventry: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england...shire-26089951

    Don't know how valid this survey actually is, seeing as KCIC has a slant on CCFC:
