Micky Adams is still seething at the fact that Coventry City must kick off the new season tomorrow still without a home.
The Sky Blues manager faces three straight away games as a result of the Ricoh Arena not being ready on time.
And, going into tomorrow's trip to Championship favourites Norwich City, Adams feels there are unanswered questions as to why his preseason preparations have been so hampered.
Coventry's players were not due to get their first feel of their new stadium until today. And Adams, further frustrated by the timing of what he sees as an unnecessary pre-season trip to Ibiza, is not happy.
"I'm absolutely devastated we won't start the season there," he said. "I experienced going into a new stadium when I was at Leicester, where we had time to get used to the surroundings and play a friendly on it, but we've had none of that here.
"We haven't been allowed on the pitch yet. Even when we do, we're going to have to run around in hard hats. That might be all right for Bob the Builder, but it's not for us.
"We've lost our advantage. We're going in there blind, and without the revenue that would have been created.
"From a results point of view, our pre-season has been a disaster, and there's been managers sacked for a lot less.
"But, if my results have been poor and I deserve the sack, then somebody has to take responsibility for this. It's a nonsense.
"If we go into the new stadium bottom because we've lost the first three games and we only get 15,000 in there for a first game, we'll have lost all the momentum we were ever going to get."
For all Coventry's stadium fiasco and their lack of preseason form, Adams is still in surprisingly positive mood ahead of the trip to Carrow Road.
"I certainly don't see the next three games as a case of damage of limitation," he said. Every team kicks off with optimism, confidence and belief and we want to go to Norwich and get a positive result.
"Some silly punters will say we've not enjoyed very good results in pre-season. But the first thing you want is to come through with your players fit.
"And after a trip to Ibiza which, given our schedule was not the best, the only one we've lost is Stuart Giddings."
