Thorn on Brody Brainwave

Coventry City manager Andy Thorn is staying out of the row created by former director Leonard Brody who thought that fans being able to text in with what players the manager should substitute was a creditable idea.

Andy Thorn refused to be drawn into the debate about what is frankly a ludicrous idea which no manager would ever work with and said at the club's weekly press conference: "I’ve got thoughts but I think it is best I concentrate on the football.

"I did say something funny but I best not repeat it, but it was along the lines of if you get a double six do you get the bus to the moon as well?

"People have their ideas and I don’t know what they do elsewhere in other countries and I don’t want to be dragged into it because we have been so positive this week.”
