    They don't own it, the EFL do.
    And if we are promoted back to L2 from non-league we get it back

    Loving these signing just being announced no 2-3 week drawn out saga in papers being linked with people.

    All have league 2 experience as well. Good stuff

    If they get promoted back to L2 the EFL will not give it back [ The golden share ] if the home ground is NOT upto LEAGUE STANDARD !!!

    I've hardly heard of any of the payers we've been signing for years. Mostly because I don't give a shit about other teams or other teams players. All I care about is if they play well for us. Most of the time they don't though to be fair.

    Already resigned to losing anyone from last season who is any good, so don't really care if people are going out. Anyone who stays is basically equivalent to a new signing in a squad made from scratch.

    Or Robins only came back only if everyone kept out of his transfer dealings. Nobody has been sold yet. The longest period for years.

    Rods a decent enough player, he certainly grew in confidence when he played for us, and I think that he is very good at a League Two level.
    Give the lad a chance, and dont get on his back, if he has a shaky start, as he is short of match practice.

    Looks like our concrete Rod will be our very own Ben Dover...

    He'll get a chance. As will McNulty! But if they don't cut it after their debut, they will be eternally shite :D

    Another astute signing, at least on paper. I've never heard of him or seen him play so I can't comment on the reality, but he's a good age, has decent experience and is rated by fans of his former club.

    Three signings BEFORE pre season has even started. What is happening?!

    If odds were available for L2 winners next season, I'd definitely let the heart and the optimism overtake the head and memories of the last 20 odd years of being a Coventry fan.

    Are they?! I checked Coral and Bet365 earlier but I couldn't find anything for next season. I'll have a look at Sky Bet now!

    During my time on here I've always considered him a sound guy, dogged in his opinion,
    Always willing to stand up for himself, yet always respectful, I've known him be funny
    And sometimes generous, but I fail to see how you can credit Astute with our signings.;)

    It's currently 13/1 for us to win L2 on Sky Bet. Definitely worth a few quid.....
