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……

Two new signings… Schadenfreude? Guilty as charged.

So it’s Alex Grove and Jack Preece… Big signings, those. Rowland Winter said that he was looking for players to come in with experience, who will be cool under pressure and who will be able to finish games off. These first two certainly fit the bill. And here’s the thing…

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…

As ye sow, so shall ye reap…

Back in 1974 as part of their centenary celebrations, Coventry Football Club (RU) produced a 72 page booklet entitled ‘One Hundred Years of Coventry Blue’, which as the title suggests was a nostalgic look at its  already long and illustrious past. It’s makes for fascinating reading, admittedly not something you would want necessarily to read from…

Freddie Tuilagi, Sam Pailor and updates from the Hull game…

One player to have gone under the radar this week, in stark contrast to the week before, is Leicester DR loanee Freddie Tuilagi. The announcement of his arrival took everyone by surprise and it became something of a subplot in the narrative building up to the Plymouth game last weekend. This was to be an…

To Hull in a handcart, ever the optimist, a glimpse of the future…

Three away games. Three losses. You could almost be forgiven for thinking that on Saturday, for those supporters making the long journey up to Brantingham Park to watch Cov on their travels once again, it’s a case of ‘going to Hull in a handcart’, such is the run of poor results away from home. Each performance…

Moving up, moving on, mascots and man of the match…

I’m moving on like a ship sailing windblown Who can say where the rainbow may be found Take my chance and I’ll sail to tomorrow April moon can you tell me where I’m bound I’m moving on from this place of confusion It’s goodbye to trouble I’m leaving behind In my life no more grieving…
