Saturday seems such a long time ago.
Concerns about the off-the-field goings-on at Coventry are such that the result against Rosslyn Park on Saturday is almost of secondary importance this week.
Apart from sorting out the obvious difficulties on the pitch, the club must resolve the question of:
- How to deal with the growing feeling amongst supporters that there is something very amiss within the coaching/admin setup;
- And, if there are problems, how they can best be resolved quickly, with a minimum of impact on the club in terms of finance and personnel.
So it’s going to be a tough couple of weeks, one way or another. The club is fortunate in that there is no match scheduled for next Saturday as it’s World Cup Final weekend, so the extra week of inactivity on the pitch means that Jon Sharp has longer to look into what has been happening at the Butts and decide whether a root and branch review is needed, or merely a bit of light pruning here and there with perhaps the odd clipping of a tail feather or two.
We have made huge strides in the last two years and I think we are looking at a rosy future, certainly a future with great prospects. (CET – Jon Sharp)
