When halibuts get in the way of a good game…

You make one small mistake… Okay, maybe more than just the one, but even so… A game defined by the presence of the odd Hippoglossus or two is one that tends to be remembered for the wrong reasons. Cam seeing a lot of the halibut Cov defence strong as we win the pen — Tim…

A black day at Blackheath – the reprise

Well I’m standing by a river But the water doesn’t flow It boils with every poison you can think of And I’m underneath the streetlights But the light of joy I know Scared beyond belief way down in the shadows Chris Rea The Road to Hell Well, that didn’t quite work out as expected, did…

A case of re-signed or resigned…?

In doing a bit of background reading on the players who featured in the MVP over the last week, a common trait amongst most is the overwhelming desire to play Championship rugby. For some it would be a return, for other’s their first experience of rugby at the next level up. Not so, of course,…

Training ground update #12

The players looked sharp out there on the pitch yesterday evening… Any concerns that last week’s layoff might not have done us too many favours were  immediately dispelled once the squad started to go through the practice drills/routines. There was real pace to everything the players did, with the ball being fired first one way…

Supporting Cov is far from routine…

I was born by the river In a little tent And just like the river I’ve been running ever since It’s been a long, long time coming But I know a change gonna come Sam Cooke – A Change Is Gonna Come It’s been a long time coming. 41 games under Rowland Winter and just…

Cov to make Loughborough pay for their student loans…?

Put the words Leicester Tigers and Academy alongside any other National One side and it’s bound to cause a few collywobbles for Coventry supporters. Loughborough’s decision to work in partnership with Leicester and, in effect, become almost a ‘B’ League side (given that the letter A has already been taken) adds a different dimension to…

Getting into the groove as Cov look to continue the run…

Come on I’m waiting Get into the groove Boy you’ve got to prove Your love to me, yeah Get up on your feet, yeah Step to the beat Boy what will it be Madonna  – Into The Groove I’m such a plonker… Every season when the fixture list is first published, I always make a…

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…

The countdown to Mose – Cov seizing the advantage early on

Friendlies Season 3 – Episode 2: the one with the Nuns

Some interesting selections for the Nuneaton game then… I remember Rowland Winter saying that the squad that he took out to Jersey would give supporters a pretty good indication of where he was going in terms of his strongest team in readiness for the opening game against Hull Ionians, which is now just four Saturdays…
