Pressley, who played for the Sky Blues for a year in the mid-1990s, has guided the Scottish League One side to a Scottish FA Cup semi-final against Hibernian on 13 April.

Lee Carsley stepped in as Coventry's caretaker manager in February when Mark Robins left the cash-strapped League One club to take over at Huddersfield Town in the Championship.

Bairns chairman Martin Ritchie is reluctant to lose Pressley, in charge at Falkirk since February 2010, but will not block the 39-year-old's departure.

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.
