Hull yeah…

One of the good things about travelling down on the supporters’ coach to away games this season is that Rowland Winter, the coaches and the players always make you feel appreciated, no matter the result. After the game, RW and Brendan Burke came onto the  coach to thank supporters for making the trip down and to emphasise just…

Freddie Tuilagi, Sam Pailor and updates from the Hull game…

One player to have gone under the radar this week, in stark contrast to the week before, is Leicester DR loanee Freddie Tuilagi. The announcement of his arrival took everyone by surprise and it became something of a subplot in the narrative building up to the Plymouth game last weekend. This was to be an…

Cov team news v Hull Ionians: able, stable and climbing up the table…

The team announced yesterday to face Hull Ionians shows only two changes, both of which are enforced as a result of injuries to Tony Fenner and Jack Willis. A third change occurs on the bench where Boris Stankovich returns, having recovered from a knee problem at the expense of Jimmy Litchfield. More often than not,…

To Hull in a handcart, ever the optimist, a glimpse of the future…

Three away games. Three losses. You could almost be forgiven for thinking that on Saturday, for those supporters making the long journey up to Brantingham Park to watch Cov on their travels once again, it’s a case of ‘going to Hull in a handcart’, such is the run of poor results away from home. Each performance…

You Spin It Round…

All I know is that to me You look like you’re lots of fun Open up your lovin’ arms I want some, want some Dead or Alive – You Spin Me Round Sad to hear of the death of Pete Burns yesterday. 57. If I live to be the same age as Pete,  I’ve got just…

Coventry v Plymouth – an experience worth sharing…

Sometimes there is a fine line between winning and losing. In yesterday’s game against Plymouth, it was pencil thin. A 4H pencil at that. And whilst there will rightly be lots of concerns expressed about a Coventry second half performance in which we almost contrived to lose a game that we were 26-5 up in…

Cov’s Man of the Match vs Plymouth

Will the outcome of this blog poll to determine Cov’s Man of the Match against Plymouth agree with that of the sponsors for the second week running? If you were at the game and would like to take part, all you need to do is click on the circle next to the player who is…

Thursday night’s training and a chat with Rowland Winter…

Well, I managed to make it to training… …and I’m glad I did. A first glimpse of Freddie Tuilaga, an interesting and informative chat with Rowland Winter and 75 minutes in the good company of a couple of other Cov supporters. Not a bad evening. Not a bad evening at all. It was encouraging to see…

Tuilagi – Freddie and the dreamers and Coaches – a new approach

I’ve long wished that one day I’d wake up to hear Coventry has made a big, big signing, someone who’s very name inspires fear in the opposition…someone like a Tuilagi, for instance. Just imagine that… Well, you may say I’m a dreamer… …but I’m not the only one. And wishes, it appears do sometimes come…

Moving up, moving on, mascots and man of the match…

I’m moving on like a ship sailing windblown Who can say where the rainbow may be found Take my chance and I’ll sail to tomorrow April moon can you tell me where I’m bound I’m moving on from this place of confusion It’s goodbye to trouble I’m leaving behind In my life no more grieving…
