Ricoh Arena: Coventry moved staff out of the stadium last week

City's owners Sisu removed staff from the ground after a subsidiary company of the club - the one which held the stadium licence - was placed in administration last week.

Sisu have held talks about relocating to an alternative venue but Arena Coventry Limited, who manage the Ricoh Arena and claim they are owed £1.3m in unpaid rent, released a statement at the weekend making it clear they do not intend to kick Coventry out.

City chief executive Tim Fisher now hopes to negotiate a new deal in time for Friday's game against Doncaster.

He said: "The long-term licence was terminated by the administrator, but we are hopeful that Coventry City Football Club (Holdings) Ltd can reach agreement with ACL to allow the team to play its final three games of the season at the Ricoh.

"We appreciate that our supporters have been through a great deal of upset and uncertainty, and there is a responsibility on all parties to ensure that the question of where we play our remaining three home games is resolved as soon as possible."

Coventry and ACL are back in the High Court on Tuesday, when the stadium's owners will attempt to force the club's football business into administration.

If that happens, the Football League is likely to impose a 10-point penalty and all-but end City's play-off hopes.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
