We won't return. Once we go down, we will stay down under SISU.
How come SISU are sticking around?
Actually thought Coventry were decent enough today, absolutely capitulated when United scored their first, was not surprised at all to see the Mighty Blades grab an equaliser
Ref was poor for both teams. Didn't like the way Cov players ran in towards the and the stretcher was brought out for the sending off, oh please.

If I had to choose today it would be Pressley, as we need to change something immediately or we are going down with a whimper.

New owners would need now to the whole summer to start to change things, with investment in club and players.

I hate both of them, more Pressley at the moment ,he just grates me.

Who would you choose ?

It would be SISU for me. I like many have wanted SISU out for an awful long time, whereas with Pressley it has been a few months (for me anyway).

Not only that, but if SISU were to leave, any new owners (which obviously wouldn't be guaranteed) would change the manager.

if you got rid of Pressley would you trust SISU in appointing his replacement? When did it go so wrong with Pressley, seemed to start off really well!?

We sold Leon Clarke to Wolves, he then decided to change up our tactics rather than attempt to get in a decent replacement which led to us going through a major decline in 2014 where we were only saved by Callum Wilson/Franck Moussa (Playing Conor Thomas/Anton Robinson RM wasn't going to work.). At the start of this season, he signed players for 4-4-2, then changed his tactics to 3-5-2 following the world cup so we didn't have the players to accommodate the formation. Though we became a little bit more solid at the back, our strikers received zero service which led to us losing/drawing a lot of games. It took Pressley far too long to figure out the flaws with the system which led to us throwing away a 2 goal lead at home to crawley, and us losing 2-1 to Crewe and 4-1 to Oldham. Since then he has changed between 4-4-2/4-3-3/4-2-3-1 to try and solve the issues but often, our teams lack a solid structure which allow opposition's midfields to just control the play. He has shown himself on many occasions to be tactically inept and has performing well below how we should be with the squad we have.

SISU are incredibly stubborn. Despite losing millions they still won't leave. Everyone can see that we will continue falling with the way things are going and with SISU no longer being able to buy the Ricoh, they almost have no chance of rebuilding this club.

In terms of today, I thought the tackle was really poor, from a player I like. Doyle was also slightly lucky when he was on a yellow after his rage at the ref following on from his 50/50 tackle with Fleck.
I would love a player like Doyle in our side, despite the fact that when he was with us I didn't particularly rate him. This is definitely his level.

Nope, which is why I would be worried with them sacking him. The did bring in ex-Leeds boss Hockaday in a few weeks back to coach the U21s, so he would be first choice.

As Joe said, last season he was fortunate to have the best attacking players in the league to get the defence out of trouble. When we lost all four (Moussa, Clarke, Wilson & Baker) we were always going to struggle.

cheers Joe x 4, sounds like he's a desperate man changing all the time. Sometimes Clough can be really stubborn with his tactics but rather that than someone who constantly changes, that's never going to work. Completely forgot you'd lost those four tbf. Replacing Clarke and Wilson with Tudgay and Miller seems shocking in hindsight (and probably quite bad at the time). What's happened to Miller btw?

the ref today was comical at times but cant argue with the red. From where I was sitting it loomed like one of those where you see them given and you see them not, so cant complain when it goes against you. Was a stupid place for the tackle too and totally unnecessary. My favourite thing today was when we had a fk in the 2nd half and the ref stood by the ball asking the Coventry players to move back. It took McEveley to march the ten yards and show him where they should be stood, ridiculous. That Samuals seemed a good player, I know all players do it but really think its time goading opposition fans in the way he did got a booking. Can understand it when that players been getting stick but dont think he had till he scored.

Lets be honest, most referees in this league are awful.

The amount of games I have been this season where both sets of supporters are having a go at the ref is insane.

very true, some the stuff is unbelievably basic though. I mean seriously, not working out the ten yards is as basic as it gets. Not that it made any difference, our set pieces are shocking, have been all season and we don't seem to have bothered working on it.

As I said I desperately and wholeheartedly despise both of them, what sisu have done to our great club is an absolute disgrace, but we need something done very quickly and sacking Pressley ,which like Tommy said would bring in Hockaday ,would hopefully mean the new manager syndrome would kick in and save us.
New owners this summer is vital, we have no future whatsoever under these charletons

New manager syndrome didn't work at Villa today, though :D

Clough's stubborness with floating corners is costing points. Drill them for god's sake!

We scored from 1 at qpr from one of them so i think hes got it in his head that its a good idea they are the easiest possible corners to defend

Concerning Miller ,he was never given a fair chance at Cov. Most fans liked what they briefly saw of him, but I think he upset Pressley at some time ,because he was suddenly bombed out of the squad and told to find a new club.

He is the one player who were told they would never play for the club again who hasn't, the other four were given another chance.

I would give Miller another go definitely. Pressley really is clueless
