Former Coventry City defender Chris Cattlin has called for a war council to try and transform the fortunes of the Sky Blues.
Speaking to BBC Coventry & Warwickshire, Cattlin who was the guest at City's 2-1 defeat at Brighton on Saturday and received good applause from both sets of supporters said: "I'd like all the brains that have got great feeling for Coventry City to come together.
"I'd like to see a war council with Jimmy Hill, John Sillett, George Curtis, Tommy Hutchinson and myself.
"Perhaps we could sit round in a lounge somewhere. You never know what comes from people's ideas but you can't just keep going on from year to year in this situation.
"It's very difficult for Andy Thorn. "It's been well documented that they've got financial problems and until that's solved they've just got to keep their gum shields in and hang on in there.
"It's very, very difficult when you're having to get rid of experienced players like they did at the end of last season and try to keep the atmosphere going and the winning formula with the young players they've got. Until we get somebody come in with financial substance this is not going to go away.
Andy Thorn, for me, has got the side playing the type of football I like. I just can't believe the luck he's had."
