And please give a warm welcome on Saturday to Dr Henry Jekyll…

Old Albanian on Saturday… And yet another team below us in the league, not unlike Cambridge, Loughborough and Fylde, who at home we would expect to beat, and beat convincingly, yet on current form we might well struggle to overcome on our travels… At The Butts though, in front of 1000 plus supporters, well this season more often than…

Travel Sick

I don’t get travel sick… …just a little sick of travel. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It would be easy to reel out the excuses… Wasps recall of Jack Willis and Tom Howe, the last minute withdrawal of  James Stokes following the pre-match warm up (forcing a late change with Will Maisey having to play full back and James Pritchard…

Cov v Rosslyn Park…run, Coventry, run

Watching Cov is rather like Forest Gump’s box of chocolates… You’re never quite sure what you’re going to get except there are never any soft centres… That said, we probably do have an inkling of what is to come following Rowland Winter’s comments on Thursday suggesting that there’s every likelihood that Coventry will show a far…

A bad hair day, or not, as the case maybe?

Something a little different today as we await the announcement of the match day squad later this morning… When you next have a break, how about grabbing a cup of coffee and settling down to see how many of the below you recognise? Most are fairly straightforward, although the odd one is a bit tricky…

Home from Home

Let’s go far away from home, Ride on a rocket Burn down the boulevard, burning it up. Let’s go far away from home, Ride on a rocket Burn down the boulevard, burning it up. Will I Am – Far Away From Home   I’m guessing (!) one of the problems with playing away from home is…

Cov supporters – so just how fickle are we…?

Many a tear has to fall But it’s all In the game All in the wonderful game That we know as love You have words with him And your future’s looking dim But these things Your hearts can rise above Tommy Edwards – It’s All In The Game Well, if ever a post was going to…

Fantasy team poll – results

As promised, today’s post details the results of the recent poll designed to be a light-hearted look at what the strongest side taken from the combined squads over the last two years might look like, as selected by readers of this blog. In all, just shy of 200 readers took part which made it the most…

Cov ‘Man of the Match’ against Cambridge – 19/11/2016

Will the outcome of this blog poll to determine Cov’s Man of the Match against Cambridge agree with that of the sponsors or will supporters look to award it to someone else? I have a strange suspicion it might… If you were at the game and would like to take part, all you need to do…

Today’s game, a late replacement, last day to vote, Stiff Little Fingers

Domestic fury and fierce civil strife Shall cumber all the parts… (and)by his side come hot from hell, Shall in these confines with a (captain)’s voice Cry “Havoc!” and let slip the dogs of war, That this foul deed shall smell above the earth With carrion men, groaning for burial   Antony (from Julius Caesar)…William…

Cov v Cambridge and THAT poll…
