Exclusive: Ian Holloway discusses Coventry City fears as stadium concern continues

Published

on

Coventry City have had things far from easy in recent years and still there remains unrest and uncertainty.

Right now, there remain questions over where the club is going to play next season and if assurances cannot be made then the EFL will call and EGM to discuss their status as a Football League club.

It’s all a mess, then, but a rather familiar one for a club that, on the pitch, actually seems to be going somewhere.

To try and pick some of the bones out of it, then, we spoke to Ian Holloway who issued this passionate response about the Sky Blues.

He told us exclusively:

“It’s sad because they’ve started to come back.

“There always seems to be another bit of torment for them and you always think, haven’t they had enough? Something needs to give.

“It doesn’t feel like a football club at the moment because you need that solid structure behind you.

“There should be a safety net for clubs like this, look at Bolton for example. There’s more than enough money at the top of the game to get a safety net for when clubs do get into trouble.

“Does this fit and proper persons rule really work? How can you check if someone is right and proper? You don’t actually know what their intentions are.

“Some locally owned clubs can even see selfish owners – look at Blackpool.

“Look at Brighton years ago when someone took their ground off of them, these are institutions and things that are more important than us – they belong to the area they’re in.

“Football should secure itself by having a slush fund in case Coventry¬†City fans have no Coventry City to follow.

“It would be easy to do.

“We don’t want to lose these clubs and I’m pretty scared that the game that I love is at risk of losing famous clubs like Coventry City.”
