The Sky Blue Trust will remain open to discussing, in a transparent and constructive manner, a solution to the problems at Coventry City FC. As has always been the case the Trust will seek to engage with all stakeholders in the dispute.
Allegations of conspiracy directed at the Trust are untrue, scurrilous and extremely unhelpful, serving only to deflect attention from the real issues at the Club.
Trust members and the fans in general require answers to many questions regarding the finances, the future of CCFC and a return to Coventry. We all eagerly await a full, clear and proper response to those concerns.
For clarity the aims of The Sky Blue Trust remain:

As you may be aware the Sky Blue Trust put a suggestion to CCFC that the Trust organize a forum for supporters to ask the club questions about the clubs finances. Sadly Mr Labovitch, the clubs independent Director, has turned down our offer but rather suggested the club holds its own forum to cover a wider range of topics rather than just the finances. When details of the club’s forum are released we will of course let you know.
In the meantime
In the absence of a forum on the finances we therefore would ask the Directors / owners of Sky Blue Sports & Leisure Limited (SBS&L), Otium Entertainment Group Limited (OEG) and CCFC to explain clearly and in detail the following.
1: Why have financial statements of CCFC Limited and CCFC Holdings Limited never been filed for 2012 or 2013? Those for 2012 were due at Companies House and Football league before any event or decision to wind up either company?
2: Given that the attendances at Sixfields are very low and the knock on effect of that financially, how will CCFC meet the requirements of the League 1 Salary Cost Management Protocol and still assemble a competitive team capable of challenging for promotion next year? What is the playing squad profile aimed at? What other sources of sales or income or other cash injections are expected to be achieved that will count towards the calculation and make squad improvements possible or even retain current budgets? Are there still savings on player wages to be achieved?Write comment (1 Comment)
Sadly Mr Labovitch has declined our genuine offer and is suggesting an alternative idea
