It’s Winter and the ice man cometh….

What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of Winter to give it sweetness John Steinbeck – Travels With Charley It’s not just Coventry supporters who are excited about the prospect of tomorrow’s visit to Old Elthamians. Dom Lespierre has also made it clear that he is looking forward to ‘renewing old acquaintances’…

Fylde (in the top drawer)….

The coaches had asked for a response to last weekend’s somewhat lacklustre performance against Bishop’s Stortford. And boy, did they get one. Ten tries, the opposition nilled. It’s hard to see what else the coaches could have expected. There will doubtless be some sceptics who will try to argue that the result is a somewhat…

Why Young Wasps are less likely to leave the nest this season….

Yesterday’s publication of the Anglo-Welsh fixtures, together with the increase in the number of A League games Premiership clubs will be involved in next season, raises some interesting questions regarding Coventry’s use of Wasps’ players, either on loan or as dual registered, over the course of the coming season. And the reverse is equally true……

Sparks are on the cards as M&S sign up for the season…

I know it’s all about longer term aims and disciplining yourself to look further ahead than just the one season. I really do understand that it’s a race and not a sprint and we should look for improvements across the club as a whole rather than focus solely on promotion. I get all that. But…

National One attendances – the winners and losers

I thought it might be interesting to have a look in today’s post at the average attendance records of the 16 clubs in National One this season and compare them to those of last season, just to get a feel of how clubs are faring generally in terms of numbers attending games over the last 18…

C’est magnifique, mais ce n’est pas Le National 1….

Sometimes reality can be a bit of a bummer. 5 games unbeaten, supporters talking about the remainder of the season with increasing confidence, performances improving significantly over the last few games… …and then along comes Hartpury College. And with Hartpury, along comes the reality check. However good we are and, in terms of National 1, I saw…

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…

Le Roux fires the first shots and Craig Newby

Half-term report…how was it for you? A poll and some numbers…

So, half way through Rowland Winter’s first season at Coventry and just how are things progressing? The Coventry DoR has been in position almost 6 months now and with the first 15 league games completed, we will all have our own expectations as to where Coventry should be at this mid-way point. I thought it might…

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…
