  1. He did okay mate. Hard going against the likes of Shipley and Tavares, but looked neat on the ball and got forward when ever he could. He looks like he has a decent engine.
  2. The keeper had next to nothing to do mate and had no chance with the goal and that's my point i.e. the defence worked their socks off and put bodies on the line when needed to protect him. Impressed with both centre halfs to be honest.
  3. Sam Wood looked a big no-nonsense blocker type CH, who won everything in the air, put in some decent blocks, but was relieved to have Agbontahoma's pace along side him once or twice. Stood up to some decent Coventry forwards and considering we were battered by a decent Coventry side for most of the game he played his part in protecting the keeper who hardly had a save to make. I'm sure Bully will be pleased with his overall performance. Onen just looked a bit lightweight and didn't really get into the game.
  4. Yeah, he looked half decent today. Considering most of the game was played in our half, he managed to be a real handful whenever we did get hold of the ball. Thought the lad at left back (Paulo Aguas) had a decent game as well.
  5. tbf we were under the cosh for most of the game. This wasn't a case of sitting back on a lead, or losing concentration at the death. thought the lads battled really well today - Agbontohoma was outstanding. Bear in mind Coventry had 4 or 5 first teamers on the pitch.
  6. so four academies have ditched him mmmm......
  7. Thousands unsold makes it all the more ridiculous that they haven’t given us more
  8. Coventry fans I know argue that getting to the final and winning it 3 or 4 years ago was the spark that re-ignited their fire and gave the club it’s mojo back. take it seriously, winning becomes a habit.
  9. Not sure that’s what he said. “Better all round game” is what he said and I find myself nodding guiltily in agreement. Des, by a country mile was the best defender I have ever seen at Wednesday, possibly the best the club has ever had, but wasn’t all that special on the ball and carried zero goal threat to the opposition, so yeah Dom’s right up there in terms of all round game… YOU’LL NEVER BEAT IORFA…
  10. From what I saw pre-season I just think he might be the one who possesses the “X-Factor”. I guess Theo and Sow might also, but I haven’t seen them yet… just gut feel that’s all.
  11. Not mentioned Shodipo either and I’ll wager he will be the best of the lot when he’s back.
  12. He stays for the season, we get promoted. He needs to feel some big love from us - he needs to hear it First time he does what he does to stop a Rotherham attack on Saturday, he needs a rousing rendition (to the old Des Walker tune) of YOU'LL NEVER BEAT IORFA YOU'LL NEVER BEAT IORFA Make it happen Owlstalkers...
  13. If we are going to play out from the back then a holding midfielder who can receive the ball under pressure is a must have. Byers can do that, he did it very well last night - not sure Adeniran is that player. both very good last night.
  14. 3 tickets paid for over3 years ago and not arrived. thats 3 empty seats tomorrow and 3 voices DM won’t have getting behind the team as we live 90 miles away and one of us works until 12.30, so I’m not prepared to sit on the M1 for 2 hours and then hit the queue 15 minutes before ko to hopefully get to our seats at half time . the customer service and yes we are customers, because we pay a lot of money for the product is disgraceful; no communication, no plan B, no apologies. No business in the 21st century deserves to survive when it performs like this. I guess there’s still a chance they all arrive in the morning, but even so, what a shambles….thousands of pounds forked out 3 years ago and we are hoping the postman arrives on the morning of the first game. Absolutely f’kin seething
  15. I reckon there were nearly that many of us at Blackburn 10 days earlier. what a night that was
  16. Wow. Sounds to me like your love-in with the piglets was a match made in heaven...
  17. Yep and I’d take 4 points from the first three games, one win, one defeat, one draw, pretty much par for the course. Unlike most on here I don’t think how we start is crucial, I fully expect the squad to take time to settle in on the pitch and we will get stronger as the season unfolds.
  18. Didn’t he start at Watford this lad? If so where’s Scram? He’ll have an opinion on him
  19. So Charlton are okay with giving us and no doubt every other visiting club 2500/3000 tickets but SAG are able to over-ride that and make up their own number? We are "special" aren't we...
