Back to the bread and butter.

So we are told 'every game as it comes' and 'we aren't looking at the FA cup clash with Chelsea but the league game with Norwich' adding 'it's our bread and butter game' All the old cliches come swarming out like bees in summer.
Luckily we have a manager who can expand on cliches and come up with original thoughts and ideas, but if he thinks we fans should put off thinking about Chelsea and concentrate on Norwich he can think again,
but, we do understand it is the team he is refering to.

We now move to the end of February and as winter considers relenting we as football fans start to dream, or worry, about the coming months. Alot can happen in this game of football, and Norwich and CCFC have often found themselves in similar situations. Over the past twenty years I would say we two teams have always been put into the same bracket, and that is why we have shared so many great players over the years. Cross, Mcguire, Bellamy (cough), Hucks and Dublin to name a few, but the list is endless.

This season though we seem to be going in different directions but we know how quick fortunes change. Norwich started so well at the beginning and with a sold-out stadium their fans want, and should get, just rewards.
We on the other hand are looking forward to the end of season looming as we have the Cup, and possibly the play-offs, to challenge.

Norwich are the wrong end of the table and Gunn must be hoping to pick up points as Forest and Plymouth, their main rivals, play away against good opposition. Will that mean they take us lightly? I believe they are. Many of their fans think because we are mid-table there is nothing to play for but our wise old Cookie is trying to play the play-off card so that the players keep performing.

Playing well now is not only about preparing for the cup but also getting ready for next season. If the play-offs happen thats a plus but a good run-in can motivate the team and encourage fans to be positive about next season.

As the Sky Blue Army travels to Norwich they know they will be following a team of committed individuals that now function as a team. Gunn will be hoping his team will start to perform and give their relegation fight a lift. But with the City of Coventry well on their way to putting together a very impressive run this game is wide open.

Coleman will concentrate on the defensive part of play and hopefully be looking for another clean sheet, and that is why I can't see CCFC losing. A scoreless draw or a Coventry win looks likely.
