On the Sixth Day of Christmas…

We’re halfway there We’re looking good now And nothing’s gonna get in the way We’re halfway there And looking back now I never thought that I’d ever say We’re halfway there We’re halfway there Big Time Rush – We’re Halfway There ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Day 6 of the ‘Coventry’s Most Valuable Player’ poll. And in 7th place,…

On the fifth day of Christmas…

Yesterday’s news that Brendon Snyman ‘has parted company with the club’, presumably with immediate effect, was something of a shock to say the least. With little evidence of there having been problems on the pitch, one can only speculate as to the reason behind Brendon’s departure. Whatever the cause, Coventry won’t have made such an important decision affecting both the…

On the fourth day of Christmas…

Day 4 of the ‘Coventry’s Most Valuable Player’ poll results and this time it’s 9th place that’s up for grabs. And you voted for: Rob Knox. ~~~~~~~~~~~ I think it’s fair to say that Rob Knox was always going to appear in the top 12, the only question being how high up he would figure in…

On the third day of Christmas you voted for…

Strange Don’t you think I’m looking older? But something good has happened to me Change is a stranger You have yet to know George Michael – Older Lovely as Christmas is, it’s good to get back to something approaching normality. With so little self-control, I do tend to over-face myself over the Christmas period and I have…

And on the second day of Christmas, you voted for…?

Well how was it for you…? If it was anything like Christmas at the Smiths, then after the usual presents and over-facing ourselves following a fabulous Xmas meal, it’s a question of indigestion, watching endless repeats on the tele and the occasional nap with obligatory snoring and dribbly chins. All this, of course, interlaced with the setting up of the grandchildren’s…

On the first day of Christmas…

A very merry Christmas and a happy New Year to everyone involved with Coventry RFC – players, coaches, backroom staff, the Board and, of course, the supporters. Season’s greetings as well to everyone who has come across to read the blog over the last 12 months, especially those who have added their own comments, something which I greatly…

The proof is in the (Christmas) pudding…

What a difference 12 months can make… This time last year it was anything but a festive time of year for Coventry supporters. The team was 9th place in National 1 with just 37 points from 15 games, 9 points and three places behind where we are now, but having played a game less. And whereas last…

Video verdicts and some mid-term musings

I met your children Oh a oh What did you tell them? Video killed the radio star Video killed the radio star Pictures came and broke your heart Oh, a, a, a, oh The Buggles – Video Killed The Radio Star If you haven’t yet watched Paul Smith’s ‘Midland’s Rugby Video Verdict’ on the Coventry…

Nothing succeeds like success…catering for bigger crowds…

Success breeds success. The more a team wins, the more support it attracts. And whilst there’s nothing new in that, it certainly is true of Cov at the moment as it seems they are already beginning to benefit from their improved performances of late, including the draw at Darlington a couple of weeks ago which by all accounts was…

Coventry’s Most Valuable Player and ‘Man of the Match’ v Moseley

By way of a bit of light relief over the Christmas period last year, I asked readers of the blog to vote for the player they felt was currently Coventry’s ‘Most Valuable Player’, the club’s MVP. With little else happening over the festive break, it was a talking point on the blog, if nowhere else. After a…

Cov ‘Man of the Match’ against Moseley – 17/12/16

Will the outcome of this blog poll to determine Cov’s Man of the Match against Moseley agree with that of the sponsors who chose James Stokes, or will supporters look to award it to someone else? As it stands at the moment, of the 5 polls so far, three have agreed with the decisions of the sponsors…
