NEWS: Coventry City legend Steve Ogrizovic to retire at the end of the season
At the end of this season. Be interesting now to see if the goalkeeper situation improves with him gone.
All the best to him and a good stalwart for us on and off the pitch over the years.
Retiring at the end of the season. I’m pretty sad about this. He’s the last link here to our top flight past and you don’t get over 30 of years of loyalty from many in football now.
To be replaced by.... Leeee Buuurge!
Will make some people happy. At least on removes the excuse of oggy everytime a keeper makes a mistake
Burge to be new goalkeeping coach
Guess it was timed to give him a send off.
Would be interesting to see who replaces him. Somebody said on here the other day all the keepers and oggy were going.
Sure Robins will have known about this for a while now and will have a new coach lined up, expect Burge and LOB will be gone, hopefully Stockdale in and Robins/new goalkeeping coach will probably make a call on whether Addai is up to the job of no2 or not.
Can't see Stockdale coming in unless he's happy for a massive pay cut.
He's been earning plenty for doing fuck all so a pay cut to play might be something he would consider.He would be number 1 and maybe player coach role.
Maybe we’re not going to have a goalkeeping coach and will offer Stockdale the equivalent wage of our 3 keepers and 1 coach?
Happy retirement to a club legend. Sure he'll get a great send off on Sunday.
Oggy was a legend for the club. Made mistakes, cost us goals, and made some great saves too. Like most keepers I guess. I wish him well.
He will get good send off at the Shrewsbury game!
Great servant of the club , hope he has a happy retirement , actual club legend
His interviews whilst he was here suggested he'd had enough of training with Blues U18s. Think he's contracted until 2020 with them so I'm sure we'd suggest they pay him off of a portion of his next years contract with them to mutually terminate and that would cover some of the pay drop he'd get here.
Yeah but he could still walk into championship clubs with a better wage
Set up nicely for Chris Kirkland.
Did think that but isn't he up north now?
Good luck Oggy!
Thanks for the memories
Thanks Oggy and enjoy your retirement. CCFC legend.
Could he though? Not even making the bench at bottom half club currently...
They are all going and being replaced
Only 4 players have played in the top flight of English football over 4 decades - Steve Ogrizovic, John Lukic, Peter Shilton & Stanley Matthews.
Liverpool Ladies, should be a no-brainer for him
Thanks Oggy! Pusb
It's got to be Stockdale as he's the only goalkeeper we've ever heard of
Been a great servant to the club over the years. I even saw his City debut !
Can nt blame him for the crap keepers we have now.
Hope he enjoys his retirement .
Exeter City's Christy Pym contract is up in the summer...
Why not just Chris?
I don't like him based on being called christy
Weren't both of Mo Konjic's lads taller than him - 6'7" or so, when he brought them over earlier this season. Even if they aren't keepers, they'd scare anybody away from the goal.
What if he dropped the 'y'?
Edit: Having thought about it, 'Christ Pm' sounds silly too!
He can call himself Christine Pym if he can punch a ball further than 5 yards as far as I'm concerned
Thanks for the memories OGGY too many players are called great, for us you were. Have a happy retirement.,
he's even been blamed for the wastefulness of the strikers!
