Coventry City and manager Mark Robins have moved quickly to ensure to build on the momentum generated by their famous win against Exeter City on Bank Holiday Monday that ensured a swift return to League One for the Sky Blues.
It’s fair to say that 90 minutes of football at a sun-drenched Wembley has transformed the entire mood of both the club and its supporters and all of the news coming out of CV6 since that day has been positive.
Firstly Robins put pen to paper on a new contract at what has become his club in many ways, one where he enjoys the complete respect of supporters, is on top of recruitment matters and where the hierarchy seem to afford him the freedom to do his job as he sees fit.
Anything can happen in football but everything is in place for Robins to be at CCFC for a five-year spell or beyond and go down in the history books alongside Jimmy Hill as someone who transformed the fortunes of the club.
As he did last summer he has not wasted any time in bringing in new players, striking while the promotion iron is hot to sign Reise Allasanni from Dulwich Hamlet, who will hope to match the impact made by Max Biamou after his move from Non-League and also Shrewsbury defender Junior Brown who comes with plenty of League One experience.
Season ticket sales are moving along steadily and the new kit is set to be launched soon…good times at the Ricoh so let’s enjoy it while we can!
