'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Former Boss in at Coventry

Former Barnsley boss Mark Robins has been appointed manager of struggling Coventry City.

Robins left the reds in the summer of 2011 and has been out of management ever since, seemingly turning down opportunities due to the clubs financial restrictions.

Robins quit Barnsley citing financial restrictions at the club making his position untenable. So taking on Coventry seems a bizarre move for Robins with the club having little or no money to spend.

Following relegation from the Championship, Coventry are still to record a victory in League One this season so Robins will face an enormous task to turn fortunes around.

I usually wish former Barnsley men well in whatever they move on to. However I have to smile to myself that he has had to accept a League One job offer. Also with the way he left the club and the football he forced us to watch at Oakwell, I would shed no tears if his time at Coventry ended in failure.
