I miss Robins too, that period under him was great ,the attacking football we played was fantastic.

If we lose and Pressley doesn't get sacked we may as well prepare properly for trips to Dag and Red and another trip to that dreadful Sixfields place.

I can't believe that Scottish twat didn't go after yesterday, it's like sisu want us relegated

We have the best away form in the league over the last four and the last eight matches so we should be looking for a win here.

Knowing us we will fuck up.

Robins time actually brought some of my favourite recent memories of supporting Coventry. That game at Stevenage wow, incredible.

Superb manager, worked very well on a tight budget.

Pressley won't be sacked anytime soon I'm afraid. That 4 year deal..

It'll cost the best part of a million pounds to sack Pressley, McFarland and Oggy. I think if SISU would want to bite the bullet then it will be done in the summer.

This is a must win game. I had no idea Leon Clarke played for them.

He doesn't.

Jordan Clarke does and he's been shite so far.

My best game under Robins was Colchester away on a very cold midweek night. I think we won 3-1 with McGoldrick scoring but that night we could/should have scored 7 or 8. We over ran them that night and even though it was possibly the coldest I have ever been watching footie I left with a warm glow in my heart and I finally thought we were going places, at least back to the upper reaches of the Championship

I was there that night and it was superb.

Even when McGoldrick left he managed to bring in Leon Clarke who was in my opinion a better replacement. Not only did he score stupid amounts for us, but we made a million pounds on him!

Absolutely dreading this, it's going to be absolutely freezing and we're going to get lose as per usual. 16 weeks since our last home win, how pathetic is that? Pressley is going to take us down

If we can have Robins as well. You can have Andy Webster. He's a Scotland international.
Nah, I like Robins. He's doing pretty good atm, just gotta improve our home form.

Mark Robins is a very, very limited football manager who was embarrassed when he made the step up to the Championship.

Things must be bad at Coventry if he is considered a managerial god.

Of course we don't think he's a managerial God, but if you have had Andy Thorn and now the equally incompetant Pressley, you would think he's a decent manager.
We realise it was in league one, but he played lovely attacking football , which worked in this league.

If have him back tomorrow as at least we would have more than one shot per game, and he certainly wouldn't think of playing Frank Nouble on the left wing like Pressley does, plus Andy Webster would be nowhere near the first team

We will most likely play an unchanged lineup but I would rather play Van Veen ahead of Hopper.

Boyce not starting?

Been our best player ever since coming into the first team, odd from Robins.

Our fans fucking clapped Gary McSheffery's goal. We're a joke.

Fuck off Scunny.

Sounds like Coventry really didn't deserve that either.

Nope, we deserved a draw. We were shit but we had enough chances to get something from the game and you sat back for most of the second half.

Agree with Charlie. Would have been a toxic atmosphere if we would have lost. Thought Barton and Pennington did well. Along with George Thomas who came on.

We really needed to win that with our run in mind...
