The Ricoh Arena: Centre of a dispute between ACL and Coventry's owners

City's owners struck a deal to play at Northampton's Sixfields home for the next three seasons after a long-running dispute with Arena Coventry Limited over the terms of their Ricoh rental agreement.

ACL this week said they would sign a Company Voluntary Arrangement enabling Coventry to exit administration if the League One agreed to a new 10-year lease on reduced rent.

In the meantime, ACL have complained to the Football League about City's proposed groundhsare.

A spokesman said: "It is clear that the Football League has breached its own regulations in making the deeply unpopular decision to allow a ground-sharing arrangement with Northampton.

"There is no justification to take the Sky Blues out of Coventry, and the Football League clearly have not considered the matter fully - or else they would not have arrived at this decision.

"ACL remains committed to keeping the Sky Blues in Coventry and will pursue all avenues available to us to do so."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
