The EFL flexing their muscles on Coventry whilst Bolton and Birmingham ride roughshod through their financial regulations. They should be looking to help Coventry not threatening them with expulsion and virtually killing off a football club.

I see Shaun Harvey is leaving the EFL at the end of the season.

Interesting that the League have only seemingly been forced into taking action as the deadline approaches and there seems to be a risk of a big problem developing if Coventry don't have a home ground next season and if the worst does come to the worst then they need to plan for next season. Only taking action when they've no choice but to do something.

Typical - do nothing for years as clubs are wrecked and only act as the problem begins to cause problems for them and their image.

You can bet if Coventry were planning on moving back to Northampton they'd happily approve it and leave it be for a few years.

It seems the only realistic alternative for them is to temporarily move to Nuneaton's ground up the road but it seems that might not be up to League requirements.

I saw him minutes after we got relegated at Brentford as we were getting into the car for a miserable journey home. I have refereed him several times and know him reasonably well as we always used to

So basically if you have black hair and a beard you stay, everyone else out.

He actually said it!   ‘We will outline our demands to the players and what is expected from them. They are going to have to work very hard, stick together and have a right good go.’

Nuneaton's ground is very much a non league venue, a return to Northampton would be given the Oysten treatment and no-one would go, and the other stadium, the Butt's arena already has 3 teams playing there (Coventry RFU, Coventry United and Coventry Bears Rugby league). Coventry City's owners SISU are constantly suing the council and the Alan Higgs charity over selling their halves of the stadium to Wasps, and it gets thrown out of court each time.

What is a new factor is that I think Wasps are now having to restructure a bit and not pay big wages for top players. A whole load of their big names will leave next season, and apart from one or two coming in, the squad is far less of a dream team of high profile stars.

Nuneaton have plenty of their own problems so don't think Coventry moving to play there will happen

Gary Bowyer appointed Bradford manager initially until the end of the season with Andy Todd as his assistant.

They look like certainties for relegation but I wish him well and hope he pulls off the escape.

He's certainly on his way to cementing a reputation as a crisis club firefighter.

I have a mental image of Andy Todd running around kicking the opposition's subs up the arse all game.

We could do with Andy Todd kicking our subs up the arse.

On another tack I see Keith Hill has got the black spot over at Rochdale. He'd got stale there. You can only work miracles for so long. Rochdale have defied gravity for a while.

I'd have Bowyer back in a New York Stadium minute. I'm even beginning to think Keith Hill might be better than what we've got.

A very good coach and good at fixing broken toys. When you look at the cast offs he made good at Rochdale he must have something. He has the habit of getting on peoples nerves though. Living in Rochdale I follow them closely and he's been a bit Mowbrayesque lately. Chopping and changing the team and playing players out of position.

I'd had enough of Bowyer though, when you've been around football a while you get to smell relegation in a team and his team ended up smelling of it. Our lot at the moment have a similar smell.

Stanley have been dropping like a stone. Last time I checked they were top 6. They aren't far off a relegation spot now. My guess is the league has caught up with them. It's a big jump from League 2 for a club with their budget.

I also saw that Paul Scholes is yet to win a game as Oldham manager. They've conceded last minute goals in all of his 4 games in charge.

Stanley took another big step to safety last night but still only 4 points off the bottom 4 but with a game in hand. Big match against Rochdale on Saturday. A couple of wins should be enough for them.

Everyone from 10th down could realistically be in trouble in League One, madness.
