No Suprises. (apart From The Chelsea Team.)

No suprises. (Apart from the Chelsea team.) A pretty near full strengh Chelsea team strolled through the the semi finals of the FA Cup with a professional display against a gutsy Sky Blues team.The sold out Ricoh Arena was host to a confident Chelsea team, unbeaten since Guus Hiddink took charge and the class of the Premiership side showed.From the kick off the Sky ....

Bring On Chelsea.

Bring on Chelsea. Allow me to set the scene. The City of Coventry, a metropolis, a beacon of hope through the darkness of the West Midlands, shone, cutting swathes through the mediocrity of West Midlands football, was the stage for a confrontation between David and Goliath. Thousands waiting outside the turnstiles, the event being delayed as the Sky Blue masses gathered ....

Coleman's Headaches Continue.

Coleman's headaches continue. As the West Terrace predicted the Sky Blues were no match for Derby in the first half as the Rams ran riot scoring twice, hitting the woodwork twice and squandering a hatful of chances. The second half was a different story as Derby allowed City back into the game but where other teams would have kicked on for at least a point, once again, ....

Depleted City Record Home Win.

Depleted City record home win.  Chris Coleman's depleted Sky Blues recorded their first home win in eight attempts at the Ricoh. Coventry started the game without regulars Fox, Dann, Ward and Tabb but had enough about them to take an early lead. In the 11th minute Beuzelin found Morrison running on to the Wednesday goal. Morrison, from a tight angle, scuffed his ....

City Finally Reach Thirty Points.

City finally reach thirty points.  Chris Coleman finally saw his side reach the 30 points target he set himself albeit five games overdue as the Sky Blues earned a share of the spoils at Liberty Stadium. With both sides struggling to find the net, it was Swansea who dominated the first half and should have made their domination count. City's ....

Socrates Ain't Singing In The Rain.

Socrates ain't singing in the rain.   Philosophy, the most important subject isn't taken seriously in our education system but it is part of our animal instinct. Every species of animal or creature have a philosophy of how to live and exist but we humans ignore that and only see the human style of philosophy. If I asked most football fans, do you like philosophy? ....

Oh Ye Of Little Faith.

    Was the togetherness the team showed in this remarkable win due to the fact we have a small squad, and thus throws players into the arena that probably wouldn't have been included? Coleman stated from the beginning he wanted a small squad but due to injuries that wish almost meant he would have to play himself. Hall probably never thought he would have to ....

Over Two Months Since Last Home Win.

Over two months since last home win.   It's been two months now since the Sky Blues won at home and the "give him 'til Christmas" boys are getting thinner and thinner. Coleman, who sets his standards low and fails to achieve them, has seen his Sky Blues fail to win at home in six attempts. City started brightly enough going one up inside two minutes, Ward ....

Sky Blues Stutter To Ugly Draw.

Sky Blues stutter to ugly draw.   Coventry came from behind to salvage a points at the Ricoh to save the blushes of Chris Coleman. It was the Swans who came out the traps the brighter putting the Sky Blues under pressure from the off but City fought back and could have easily took the lead twice in the first ten minutes or so with Swansea making a goal line ....

Backs To The Wall As City Pull Off Fine Win.

Backs to the wall as City pull off fine win.   The Sky Blues come away from Hillborough with all 3 points after a gritty display. From the whistle Wednesday came at the Sky Blues with City having to soak up much of the first half pressure. After Chris Colemans half time talk the Sky Blues came out on the attack and in the 58th minute got their breakthrough with ....

Woeful Sky Blues Lose Again.

Woeful Sky Blues lose again.     Chris Colemans Sky Blues relegation form continues as Plymouth sink Coventry with a late winner in the 87th minute. The Sky Blues started brightly and had much of the better play in the first minute then things got back to normal. Coleman stuck with fans favourite Leon Best who's only contribution was to be caught off side ....

Time For Coleman To Go?

Time for Coleman to go? and take Best with him. The Sky Blues rolled over giving Crystal Palace, who had not won in five games prior to today, an easy victory at The Ricoh Arena. The Welsh windbag got everything wrong from team selection to tactics to substitutions as the Sky Blues looked clueless and disinterested throughout the 90 minutes that was ....

Money Can't Buy Points.

Money can't buy points. "You're rich, but your teams still s£it." echoed 'round the Ricoh on Saturday as the Sky Blues saw off a strong challenge from Iain Dowies men.Ironically QPR have been the best team we've seen in the Championship at the Ricoh so far this season but Coventry managed to hold on to the 1-0 lead gratuitously handed to the by the man in black ....

Strikers Fail To Strike.

Strikers fail to strike. Coventry City failed to take advantage of 10 man Blades as once again Colemans faith in his strike force is misguided. (Like Leon Best's shooting.)In a game in which the Sky Blues dominated play it was two points dropped as City failed to capitalise on their chances. It was left to midfielder, Jay Tabb to show our strikers where the back of the ....

Deluded Coleman "content" With Rubbish.

Deluded Coleman "content" with rubbish. To make any sort of impact in this division Coventry City need to be winning games like Preston North End at home and if our manager's starting position for assessing the game is based on how crap we were a fortnight ago then God help us.City started the game brightly in the Autumn sunshine, boasting an attack of Eastwood, ....

City Slump To Three On The Trot.

City slump to three on the trot.   City boss Chris Coleman has finally admitted what a lot of fans already suspected, that it's going to be a long hard slog again this season. With 3 lucky wins and 3 losses under his belt Coleman looks to manage the fans expectations rather than manage his players after a lack lustre performance at newly promoted ....

Coventry City 0 - 3 Phil Dowd.

Coventry City 0- 3 Phil Dowd.   Phil Dowd stunned Chris Coleman and the home crowd at the Ricoh with a sublime display to end Coventry's 100% record this season. The oddly shaped official, who's arms are three inches too short for his body hails from Stoke on Trent where it's normal for people to have short arms, (Robbie Williams anyone?) has been ....

Tyke That.

Tyke that.   In their best start to the season in fifteen years Coventry march to the top of the league to prove the 40/1 offered by some bookmakers pre season was rather generous and foolish.The Sky Blues, once again, took all three points without being convincing, but as they say, it's a mark of a good team when they win when not at their best.Coleman made one ....

The Shots Blown Away.

The shots blown away. Coventry ended up comfortable 3-1 winners at the Ricoh after a first half display that left a lot to be desired. It could have been so different as Aldershot went closest in the opening exchanges when John Grant lobbed Danny Ireland with the City defence having to head over the bar to clear the goalbound chip. Coventry were limited ....

Shapeless Sky Blues stutter to victory.   Coventry City walked away 2-0 victors in a poor game in which both teams started deliberate and nervous and got  slower as the game progressed.

And So It Goes On.

And so it goes on.      Pre match we tried the delights of the Cherry Tree. All in all a good venue with a good atmosphere. It was nice to meet up with some old faces, Rob87, Baddiel and Matesy amongst others. The conversation was about anything and everything except how the Sky Blues would fair. It was as if no one wanted to tempt fate. The half time at Colchester had probably saw City fans at their lowest all season but we were still in this ....

High Five.

High five.     In what was the most important game of the season so far Chris Colemans Sky Blues held their nerve as the travelling Sky Blue Army lost theirs and came out easy winners in the end. Pre match was spent in the Dragoon, situated just on the edge of town but in walking distance of Layer road. Of the City fans in the pub the conversation inevitably was about how we would fair and the consequences if we failed to win. At times like this it's ....

It's all to play for after The Sky Blues threw away a goal lead and total dominance to capitulate in the second half.In a game that neither side could afford to lose for very different reasons the Sky Blues started the more confident but couldn't capitalise on first half possesion and chances.Coleman made two changes from last weks defeat at Watford bringing Thornton back in to the starting line up for Julian Gray and Tabb back in as Osbourne went ....
