If we keep playing like we did in the last 30 mins then relegation is inevitable.
First half looked very good, lots of passing and moving, could have gone in one up, started the second half well.
Tavernier and Williams seemed to have struck up an understanding, shame they were on a different wavelength to Agard and Sow.
Then took off Lewi, big error sticking Cisse out wide, his lack of conviction cost the goal, that and some joke defending.
Why did Nicolls spend so much time before the game practicing long goalkicks, then spend the whole game playing them short to defenders.
Our build up was much too slow, second to the ball lots of times. Cisse and some others just strolled through the game, total lack of urgency.
Coventry pushed up in the second half compressing play into about 15 yards, but we took so long to get the ball up to the front men everyone was marked with at least three spare players. Lots of work to do on the training pitch, fans want to see players willing to die for the cause, as well as good football.
Take nothing away from Coventry, they kept their shape and every man did his job, but our lethagy made it easy for them.

No pleasing some folk.

If you're happy watching that every week fare enough, you probably don't have far to travel to home games, my 100 plus miles round trips for home games are starting to feel less worthwhile, so based on what I've seen this season, myself and my son will not be renewing our season tickets or attending anymore home games, just away games now, starting with Walsall Saturday.

I'm refusing to get sucked in again. It's only a game, which I'll enjoy whatever the standard. I'll go, have a couple of pints, chat rubbish with some friends, come on here, post crap which hardly anyone reads, have an evening out in the Stony fleshpots, come home, go to bed.

It's really only a game. Nothing more. Just a game. Enjoy it for what it is. A game.

I'm sure you have said that in the past and will say it again in the future.

Whether we stay up or go down will probably not be decided until towards the end of April.

What I dont get is that for the last few months people posting on here have been sick and tired of the crap football we have been playing. ( not sure if one can call it football).

We have a new management team which although includes a young ambitious manager first time job with a very experienced assistant at Premier League clubs and yet all is doom and gloom after one match day.

FFS give them a chance the state we have been in is liking turning an oil tanker round in the Grand Union Canal ie bloody difficult.

If they could wave a magic wand Im sure they would but football aint like that apparently.

Just for a few months can we possibly get behind them and see what May brings.

None of us want relegation but please lets get behind the team on match days

This.
It was a bit worrying how the weaknesses are still prevalent, but there was just enough improvement to keep me interested.
I'm not expecting a complete turnaround within 2-3 matches, but hopefully will see some more improvement.
In a way, it's going to be interesting to see if DM has enough time to turn us around. Maybe PW should have got rid of RN a month earlier?

Stoney fleshpots? Bit too far from the clap clinic for my liking

For the first 45 minutes we were exciting up to the penalty area, and nearly all the players played well. But on clear chances we still should have gone in a goal down. Our possession on the floor might look good, but only in the areas outside those two banks of four.

Second half we shot ourselves in the foot with those defensive changes and seemed to lose the plot.

As I said elsewhere, its early days. The new management team needs time to gel.
