The "Fighting the Jimmy Hill Way " alliance calls upon all Coventry City fans to join them in a planned day of action on Saturday October 22nd to demonstrate the strength of feeling that the time has come for club owners SISU to put the club up for sale.
At 2pm we will be marching from Holbrook Park on Holbrook Lane via Hen Lane to the Ricoh Arena where we will assemble at the Jimmy Hill statue to make ourselves heard in a vocal but law abiding manner.
At 3pm as the match versus Rochdale kicks off we intend remaining in place at the statue as we make the incredibly difficult decision to "boycott" the match.
This decision has not been taken lightly but we feel the owners need to get a taste of what life will be like should they choose not to sell. That is to say ever increasing numbers of supporters staying away from games having had enough of SISU and its disastrous tenure.
We would urge supporters to attend both elements of our day of action but acknowledge that some will find it hard to stay away from the game and no hard feelings will be held towards those who actually go in.
We hope however that there will be a good turn out for both the March and the gathering at Jimmy Hills statue as we once again urge SISU to do the right thing and sell up.
Ian Dowie, Chris Coleman,Aidy Boothroyd, Andy Thorn, Mark Robins, Steven Pressley and now Tony Mowbray have all come and gone during their tenure which suggests the problem lies far deeper than who the manager of the club is and that only a change of ownership will allow the club to move forward.
We therefore reiterate that SISU should follow Mowbrays honourable lead and put the club up for sale.
We would also add that it is club chairman Tim Fisher under who's stewardship the club has failed at every turn. We therefore feel strongly that, on this occasion, the wrong man has left the Club.
