When The Sky Was Blue: The Inside Story of Coventry City's Premier League Years

Rich Chamberlain

Regular price $21.94

From the publisher:

When the Sky Was Blue celebrates Coventry City's nine-season adventure in the Premier League, from founder members to relegation, through a compelling array of brand-new interviews with managers, players and other key figures from the time. While not the most glamorous club to have played in the division, few can match the Sky Blues for madcap tales. This book tells those stories through the memories of those who were there.

Hear how Bobby Gould's decision to hold pre-season in an army barracks led to near-death experiences and career-ending injury. Savour the glitz and glamour of Ron Atkinson's whirlwind spell at Highfield Road. Relive Gordon Strachan making Robbie Keane Britain's most expensive teenager.

Oh, and there's also those heart-stopping relegation battles, FA Cup heartbreak and the time Coventry City became 'The Entertainers'.

The author:

Rich Chamberlain's first trip to watch his beloved Coventry City was in the inaugural Premier League season. He witnessed a dire 2-0 defeat to Wimbledon. Amazingly, this failed to put him off a life following the Sky Blues. Away from football, Rich is a former freelance journalist who has interviewed stars as diverse as rap royalty Ice-T, rock hell-raisers Moetley Crue, pop songstress Sheryl Crow and football icon Jimmy Hill.
