Not convinced City will miss Clingan

So, after much speculation throughout the summer, Sammy Clingan’s move to Coventry City appears to be going ahead. It was being reported this morning that after fresh talks over the weekend, the midfielder is on the verge of joining the Sky Blues for a fee of around £650,000. There have been a number of complications with […]

Norwich v Coventry – three points or… know the rest

The phrase ‘must win’ is used an awful lot in football. However, for Norwich City this weekend it couldn’t be more appropriate. Bryan Gunn’s team – who sit in the bottom three of the Championship – face Coventry City on Saturday and it is a game they simply have to win. The relatively disappointing home […]

Coventry Morrison’s most likely destination

Not content with picking up Freddy Eastwood from Wolves, it looks like Coventry are about to sign the now former (?) Palace striker Clinton Morrison as well. There’s been no word from the club about whether or not either of them were on Roeder’s list of targets, but if you add Kevin Phillips, Andrew “don’t […]

2007/08 Review: March – featuring Blackpool, Watford, Coventry, Stoke, Sheffield United, Colchester and Bristol City

March wasn’t one of the best months in City’s season. It started with a disappointing 2-1 defeat to Blackpool at Carrow Road. Two goals from Stephen McPhee gave the Seasiders a 2-0 lead going into the break, and although Jamie Cureton’s penalty halved the deficit with twenty five minute to play there would be no […]

2007/08 Review: November – featuring Ipswich Town, Watford, Plymouth Argyle, Coventry City and Blackpool

November kicked off with a new manager in the form of Glenn Roeder. A lot of people, including me, were rather uninspired by the board’s choice of new manager, and had been holding out for Paul Jewell. If only we knew then what we knew now. The first act of the Roeder regime was to […]

FA Cup Memories: Coventry City v Tottenham Hotspur, 1987 Final

The first FA Cup Final I can remember was the 1987 showpiece between Coventry and Spurs when I was six. My main memory of the day was feeling really really sorry for Gary Mabbutt when he scored the own goal, and the look on Kilcline’s face when he lifted the cup. It was great. It […]

Poll Results: Southampton, Leicester, Sheffield Wednesday, Coventry or Blackpool – who won’t be very happy on Sunday?

67% of voters agree with me and think the Foxes are for the drop. City’s weekend opponents Sheffield Wednesday only picked up 2% of the vote, so people are either extremely confident that Leicester are doomed or they don’t fancy our chances at Hillsborough on Sunday – probably both. Southampton, Leicester, Sheffield Wednesday, Coventry or […]

Poll: Southampton, Leicester, Sheffield Wednesday, Coventry or Blackpool – who won’t be very happy on Sunday?

It’s the final poll of the season (until I think of another one anyway). Southampton’s point at West Brom last night means there is still a real battle on for the third and final relegation place in the Championship, with the Saints, Leicester City, Sheffield Wednesday, Coventry City and Blackpool still not safe. I’ve had […]

Championship Predictions: 28th April 2008

Oh, the sweet feeling of being able to take a look at the Championship table without coming over a little peculiar. Here’s how I think the final league table will look: West Brom (81pts) Stoke City (81pts) Hull City (78pts) Bristol City (74pts) Crystal Palace (71pts) Watford (70pts) Wolves (70pts) Sheff Utd (67pts) Ipswich Town […]

Looking forward to Saturday’s game? I still can’t make my mind up…

I usually look forward to the last home game of the season. I enjoy the awarding of the Player of the Season (although if anyone other than Dion wins it this year I think I might try and start a riot) and, more often than not, I like the lap of “honour” the players do at […]

Championship Predictions: 20th April 2008

Ok this is getting silly now. There’s only two weeks left in the season so you’d think it would get easier to sort out the mess that is the Coca-Cola Championship, but it’s still all over the place. Here’s where I am today: West Brom (83pts). Stoke (81pts). Hull (75pts). Bristol City (75pts). Watford (73pts). […]

Poll Results: Who’s going down?

The results are in, and the people who have stumbled across this blog have spoken. The results are: Leicester – 47%. Norwich – 13%. Sheff Wed – 10%. Blackpool – 9%. Coventry – 8%. Southampton – 8%. Barnsley – 5%. Looks like the Foxes are favourites to claim the third relegation place, but own up […]

This weekend in the Championship

City could very well be safe after this weekend’s games – or we could just as easily find ourselves back within a couple of points of the drop zone with only two games left. The Happy Days Scenario The dream scenario for us would results something along the lines of Barnsley to beat Leicester, Blackpool […]

Championship Round-Up: Surely one more win will be enough?

Today’s Championship results were almost perfect for the Canaries: Norwich 2 Burnley 0. I went for 2-1 but 2-0 was even better. Thank you Dion, thank you Ched. Colchester 2 Ipswich 0. The U’s would have been relegated had they lost to Ipswich, who didn’t exactly warm up for next week’s derby in the best […]
