Handbags And Gladrags.

Handbags and Gladrags. The Sky Blues travel to Derby, the land of head scarves PVC shopping bags big coats with big buttons on, and that's just the men!I worked in Derby some years back and I'd like to say I've a soft spot for them.I'd like to say it...You'd have thought the war was still on.It's an odd place with odd people, for decent night life you have to go to ....

Tangerine Dream

Tangerine Dream. This Saturday we see the seasiders coming to the Ricoh on the back of that shocking FA Cup result to our next Cup opponents. We could, and should, have been playing Blackpool for the next two weeks but now they face Brum next week in the league. We are no strangers to cup upsets and I was rather taken aback that people weren't really suprised at ....

You Must Be Kidding.

You must be Kidding.  As most are aware I have a soft spot for many clubs and 'The Harriers' are no different. Of course this Cup game is at the Ricoh but one of the reasons I am fond of them is the fact they possess a really nice little ground that lies next to The Severn Valley steam train station.We shouldn't under-estimate them too much, and with the apathy of ....

Sky Blues Christmas Catalogue.

Sky Blues Christmas catalogue.  Chris Coleman's philosophy of 'grouping' games throughout the season is logical, and also interesting. He has grouped our next three matches together which I think most fans and commentators would go along with.Our Christmas cheer begins this Saturday with Ipswich at home, then a Boxing Day away clash with Swansea, and finally back ....

Ipswich - Where Did I Put Those Keys?

Ipswich - where did I put those keys?  The reason for writing this now has nothing to do with the fact it probably takes Ipswich fans 2 days to get to Coventry by tractor. Or it takes them two days to read it. No, I would not be so cruel.Like many clubs in this league I also have a soft spot for Ipswich. Apart from the football I have only been to, or near Ipswich ....

Watford - Candle In The Wind

Charlton - Back to the future.   We have now played 3 teams from the bottom six and starting to get points. Since we were relegated we have constantly lost to teams below us, and if we are intent on doing something, this season or next, we must beat teams around us or below us.So many teams, when relegated, look to rebound and they are under the illusion that the ....

Charlton - Back To The Future.

Charlton - Back to the future.   The last time we played Charlton at their ground was when Ray Ransom said 'That will never happen again'. It was the last game of last season and Charlton tore us apart. It sent our neighbours down but that could have so easily been us. I hope RR remembers that day when he travels down to London for this game.Saying that, I don't ....

The Loving Memory Of Brian Clough.

The loving memory of Brian Clough.   As you know my mum's background is Welsh, or at least her family is. Well, my Dad is from Nottingham. The first top I ever had was Notts County and my uncle sold programmes outside the ground. But my Auntie Ann broke the tradition and married a Forest fan. County were in the top tier as were Forest and it was great to go to ....

Sky Blues To Carve Up The Swans?

Sky Blues to carve up the Swans?   Of all the games I was looking forward to this season, this was the one more than any other. It's not because of childhood memories when my father dragged me bird watching at 4 am in the morning. It's not because of my schooling in Rugby and rugby being a passion for many a welshman. It's not because of my Welsh heritage of ....

View From Afar.

View from afar.   Well today we visit one of my favourite grounds. To be honest when I lived in Britain I prefered away games to home games. There is a different kind of supporter who attends away games, and we can see that with all the booing going on at the Ricoh. CCFC has always had fickle fans and even at Highfield Rd the moaners were always out in force.In ....

Sky Blues Look To Put Home Form Behind Them.

Sky Blues look to put home form behind them.     Coventry travel to Hillborough hoping to put the last two games behind them and re-ignite their season. Two disappointing performances at home have left them in 18th place in the Championship on 20 points, 5 points above relegation and 20 points off pace setters Wolves. After what can be described as a ....

Coleman Looking To Make Amends.

Coleman looking to make amends.   Chris Coleman will be hoping that his team can put the debacle of Crystal Palace behind them and take all three points against Plymouth. After the garbage they displayed on the pitch last Saturday the Sky Blue faithful will be hoping for a performance that they can be proud of. Much has been written over the past week  ....

Rams To The Slaughter?

Rams to the slaughter? Angry Chris Coleman will be hoping Derby feel the backlash  from poor performance mid week against Burnley. This week has seen City plummet to 17th in the Championship, just 4 points above the relegation zone and Coleman is desperate for the Sky Blues to get back to winning ways. Derby sit just 3 places above the Sky ....

Coleman Happy With A Point.

Coleman happy with a point. Chris Coleman has indicated that he will be happy with a point from Saturdays clash with 2nd in the Championship Wolves claiming "...it is not about that (Eastwoods return) it's about Coventry City going to Wolves and getting a point..." At a time when Coventry City are full of confidence and climbing the table and off the ....

Dowie Returns.

Dowie returns. All the hype has been about the return of Iain Dowie to the Ricoh Arena but this should play a poor second to the job in hand. Two draws in a week that the Sky Blues possibly should have won puts us back in the frame to push on up the table. QPR will take heart from their win at Carrow Road mid week but as comfirmed on the first day of the season, Norwich ....

Preston North End!?! Preston North End!!!

Preston North End!?! PRESTON NORTH END!!! That was how the lad reacted the last time the Sky Blues played Preston after they'd dicked us 1-0 at Deepdale when he asked how we'd got on and who we were playing. No disrespect to Preston, fact was they should have beaten us at the Ricoh last September after Partick Agyemang had put the visitors in front in the first half ....

Coventry take on the Toon.    With Cup games thrown in mid week it seems it was only 5 minutes ago since the last match preview and seeing that we’re a bunch of lazy so and so here at the West Terrace we were over the moon to receive an e-mail from “Geordie Dave” with his thoughts on the game.Thanks Dave.Fre The Toon this is the ernly real ....

Sky Blues look to continue winning ways at Barnsley.   The Sky Blues take on slow starting Barnsley in their first away fixture of the season. Away to Barnsley has reaped rewards in the recent past for Coventry, notebly last seasons opener when the Sky Blues came away 4-1 winners. Iain Dowies men took the lead early on only for Barnsley to equalise shortly after. ....

Focus on Aldershot.   After 125 years, almost to the day the Sky Blues welcome Aldershot to the Ricoh Arena.Now I'll be the first to admit I know absolutely nothing about the Northern pit village somewhere near Huddersfield or Barnsley or one of them places so imagine my suprise when I googled it and found that Aldershot is infact, in London.

Had enough, had enough, yes you’ve let me down, let me down!     Football on a Sunday is not good. Why have the Seasons big finale on a Sunday? Practically zero public transport with Sunday timetables and many train lines undergoing routine maintenance.

In Wolverhampton dressing like Dave Hill and Noddy Holder is a way of life and has been for the past 3 decades.
