    But mysteriously, once the purchase of the land and the sale to Tesco had been completed, Coventry City Council informed the football club that they were unable to share with them the profit from the sale of the land due to ‘state aid’ implications.
    extract from Paul Fletcher's book about the deal......................looks like the council have previous

    You have to say we've had some shit people in charge of this club but pretty much every one of them, going back long before SISU arrived, have been scathing about the council.

    Wonder if we'll see interviews with the likes of Fletcher following this.

    The council were obviously gutted they couldn't share the profit. So much so they decided to give us a generous £1.2mill rent deal when it all went tits up for us...
