Cov hoping for one Hull of a good performance…

Two years ago, almost to the day, Coventry was about to embark on its 2015/16 campaign with a home game against Wharfedale. It was a time of great optimism, with the club having finished a commendable third the season before, recruited strongly (so we were led to believe) and having had a very encouraging pre-season…

Hard done by Moseley lose to Blaydon…the run in to the end of the season

Oh dear. Blaydon 25 – 12 Moseley. Blaydon were at the races and won… …Moseley fell at the first hurdle. Yesterday, it seems as if Kevin Maggs’ worst fears were yesterday realised. Without 5 players following the England Counties game against Scotland Club XV on Friday,  Moseley made the long journey up to a resurgent Blaydon. The…

Today’s game…déjà vu Dev…farewell to Dan…band aid…Twitter feed

Game day. And probably just the right fixture for Cov, following last week’s second half humbling at the hands of Hartpury… …how’s that for alliteration? Esher did us over good and proper earlier in the season down at Molesey Road, winning 34-14 and nilling us in a comprehensive second half performance. We know exactly what…

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…

Look, Lemme tell you this I know you know someone who’s got a negative vibe (Euhh) And if you only help it will only keep it alive (Sh-yeah) They really don’t have nowhere to go Ask ’em where they’re going They don’t know McFadden and Whitehead – Ain’t No Stopping Us Now 11 changes to…

The close season is now officially open…

In previous years, this 12 week break from the end of one season to the beginning of the next was little more than a time of reflection of the Cov that just was and anticipation of the Cov that will be, come September. For me, it was a time spent scouring the papers and Internet for…

Why the unbeaten run now and despicable Cov, too

I imagine the question that most Cov supporters will be asking themselves is why on earth it took Coventry until mid-March to exhibit the kind of consistent form that we all knew they were capable of producing? Yes, prior to then there had been odd games where you thought maybe, just maybe, there was a faint spark of…

So who else would you offer a contract to…and tomorrow’s team

One of the most telling statistics to come out the drawn game against Blackheath last Saturday is that it resulted in our longest unbeaten run of the season – just 4 games in total. Not what we were expecting back in September but what we were hoping for come Christmas. It’s been that disappointing.

Blackheath, Moseley and Creative Parallel…

So today is to be my last away game of the season, having made the decision that with nothing really to play for, Wharfedale is probably a bit too far for a day trip. I always enjoy travelling, whether it be with friends as it was a couple of weeks ago or by public transport as is…

The Coventry Alternatives – 2015/16 and Blackheath RFC

Whichever way you look at it, this season has been a massive anti-climax, so much so that there’s no point in even trying to put some sort of spin on it. It’s hard to find any positives to come out of it, other than perhaps the fact that it has brought about a complete restructuring of…

Anyone else feeling any guilt, awards’ day and comedy evening

The end of the season is fast approaching. An if I’m honest, I’m not quite sure how to feel about it. After all the disappointments we’ve had this season, in some respects it just can’t come quick enough. I’m getting to the stage now where the remaining games are almost (almost, mind you) secondary to the news that has…

Cov v DMP – it’s just got a whole lot more interesting

3 pm today is going to be fun. So, if you were planning to give the DMP game a miss, believing it likely to end up a dull, mid-table affair with little to play for and no atmosphere, then think again. It seems as if there might be some fireworks after all and it could be…
