Published August 2, 2013
IT 'GOES BEYOND FOOTBALL': Also in Coventry, Steve Carpenter reported supporters have "welcomed last-ditch talks" between ACL and Coventry City to keep the team in Coventry. Sky Blue Trust spokesperson Jan Mokrzycki said, "The whole sorry saga goes way beyond football and the fans are in complete contempt. The frustrating part is what do us fans have to look forward to?" (COVENTRY OBSERVER, 7/31).
NO TALKS: In a separate piece, Reid reported no 11th-hour talks aimed at keeping Coventry City at the Ricoh have taken place between council leader Ann Lucas and SISU Capital CEO Joy Seppala. Seppala "remains keen to take up Lucas's offer of 'woman-to-woman' talks any time, anywhere." It is "not known if there are attempts today [Thursday] on either side for the two women to talk" before Friday's meeting (COVENTRY TELEGRAPH, 8/1)
