The Sky Blues have been deducted 10 points by the Football League with part of the club on the brink of liquidation. With pitch invasions and fan protests continuing, ACL and SISU are still at each other’s throats.

We ask – when does this mess end? Ahead of Coventry’s opening ‘home’ game at Northampton this Sunday, we catch up with When Saturday Comes writer Tom Furnival-Adams and Jim Lee from the ‘Keep CCFC in Cov‘ campaign…
