Coventry City fans had plenty to be happy about in the late 1990s. They had been a top-flight side for more than three decades, and they were graced with a team of glittering international stars such as Robbie Keane, Gary McAllister and Mustapha Hadji. The future appeared bright with the promise of a huge new multi-purpose stadium - including a retractable roof and removable pitch - that would make the club self-sustainable. Fast-forward another 15 years and the club found itself with no stadium to call its own, playing in front of tiny crowds some 35 miles away from the club's home city. Coventry City: A Club Without a Home is a journey through one of the most turbulent times in the history of the Sky Blues, told by those caught in the eye of the storm.
