As last season wore on, I started to notice a trend. Whenever there was a pause in our season; be it due to international breaks or COVID-19-related postponements, we would always manage to turn in a lethargic performance on our return to play. Needless to say, then, that with a tough run of fixtures coming … Continue reading Can I Boro a Feeling?
It's almost as though the summer never really happened, isn't it? There was a lot of worry and a dash of negativity going into the start of the new season, as many Cov fans felt that the team hadn't really improved on what was at our disposal by the end of May. Matty James, Leo … Continue reading Reading And Leads
Coventry City vs. Nottingham Forest - 08/08/2021 Sometimes, the size of the occasion can outweigh the occasion itself. After what feels like more than two seasons, we are finally back home. The Ricoh/Coventry Building Society ‘CBS’ Arena has missed out on promotion to, and survival in, the Championship. It has missed out on Liam Walsh, … Continue reading Much Ado About Notting
Adams Park is a happy hunting ground for Coventry City, and I’m sure almost every Chairboys supporter you ask would agree. With that in mind, it’s easy to say that it’s never a bad time for us to play this fixture; and on the back of a nice unbeaten run in the league, confidence amongst … Continue reading Can We Play You Every Wyc?
The men in suits Have shown no colour Lest the grey and black hues of their attire Perhaps, the suits are their armour, And their monies? The weapons. And yet, No matter how flimsy their armour, No matter how unbiased their colour scheme Theirs is the most potent weapon. Money. The sole dictator of life, … Continue reading Volume II: Exodus.
Christmas is over, and we're now back to normal; almost as though it never happened. For example, Coventry City won three matches over the festive period, and then lost to Scunthorpe following the passage of Yule. As such, we seem to have found our footing for the season, and it's very much a mid-table-resembling 'win … Continue reading Cov One – ‘Don Juan
The dawning of a new December brought with it the dreadful despairing of a deciduous dip in our displays. The six-game unbeaten spell that befell us in the autumn was now well and truly confined to the remnants of football history, and we have left our positive vibes to freeze in the harsh wintry climes. … Continue reading We’ve Got A Luton Our Plate
A month can seem like a long time in football. It certainly seems like a while since I lasted posted. Typically, such tardiness has occurred at a time when Coventry City have given me quite a bit to write about. Five wins on the spin, eh? An extra sixth game unbeaten, Saturday's 1-1 draw with … Continue reading Catching Back Up
Is it too early in the season for squeaky bum time? How important will this week's results be in eight month's time? How important is a consistent system when so much can change from one game to the next? Am I asking too many questions? Do bums even squeak? I'll try and answer at least … Continue reading Pomped Up Kicks
I went to the game against Bristol Rovers last week. The ground was miserable, the weather was miserable, and the performance was sub-par miserable. Quite frankly, I didn't want to do a blog about it, so consider that opening statement as good as one. To be honest, it would've been miserable, too. I think what … Continue reading They Come From A Land Down Sunder
