Ricoh Arena: Coventry hope to win back 10 points

The League One club was given seven days to exercise its' right of appeal and has chosen to do so in order to keep their slim hopes of a play-off place alive.

A High Court hearing in London last week ruled that the club had gone into administration, with their Ricoh Arena landlords - Arena Coventry Ltd - owed over a year's unpaid rent of £1.3m.

City said they had placed a non-operating subsidiary of the club into administration and insisted it was business as usual at Coventry City Football Club (Holdings), which they said held the crucial 'golden share' that provides membership to the Football League.

A statement on the club's website read: "Coventry City Football Club (Holdings) Ltd has submitted an appeal to the Football League to have the 10 points deducted last week reinstated.

"The points were deducted following the administration of CCFC Ltd. The club will keep supporters informed of the progress of the appeal."

S I've always envisioned him as a Pirlo or a Scholes, though he needs some of Andy Murray's conditioning and shiny, ankle supports to keep his own from buckling under the tackles that will (inevitably) come his way. He's got the physique and low centre of gravity to flourish, but needs to make himself more resilient.

Time For Another Wenger U-Turn On Wilshere?

A

s a United fan I fell I can say this without accusation of bias, Sergio Aguero is for me the only player close to Ronaldo or Messi, what goes against him is his injury record, Hazard is good in fits but doesn't give enough end product in my eyes, Tevez would be 4th for me
