Arguably the biggest ****-off on this forum and none of you could be bothered to create a thread for this?
SERIOUSLY?

Anyway, Wigan can tighten their grip on top spot, Cov need to win to keep just about in touch with the top 6.

Wigan will probably will because they're well good at football and that.

For some strange unexplained reason I can actually see us winning this. We just play better away from home.

1-2 to the mighty ish skyblues

Don't care anymore. Get rid of them all and start again.

This.

So glad I did overtime at work instead of going today. Seriously thinking of sacking next season off. I bet Mowbray played the same tired old formation again...

Me to Tommy, I'm dreading next season when yet again we start well and get near the top and raise those ignorant to what will eventually happen , start saying we're going to win the league, for it to all fall apart again when Mowbray changes the system and starts playing everyone out of position.

I'm thinking of giving it a miss also

Why does he play the leading scorer out wide on his own ,when he scored all his goes when he was a centre forward down the middle.
I'm just totally flummoxed by his tactics

Coventry looked poor. Devoid of any confidence, they strung a few good passes together, then straight away a string of sloppy passing followed it. Several players looked disinterested, I think Armstrong wished his loan had been terminated. That Bigirimana was simply woeful, just ran around, don't think he even touched the ball and just pushed and kicked our players clumsily all game.

Joe Cole, now I've never seen a player more desperate to get sent off in a game, came on made a crunching late tackle and got booked. Then made another late tackle, well after our player had played the ball, having looked over his shoulder to check the ref was watching first. He then did it twice more despite being on a final warning and the ref let him off, Cole looked absolutely gutted to not get the second yellow.

Not sure he was alone though because there was a lot of players just lunging in late second half at 1-0, at 0-0 these kind of tackles weren't happening, but the referee was very weak.

First half we dominated possession and despite regularly bursting into the box, either our final ball was poor, no one was in the box to get on the end of the ball or Coventry defenders blocked it. Half chances for both sides first half. Second half we completely dominated and should have scored more, guilty of overplaying it rather than just shooting on a number of occassions. Jaaskaleinan could have stayed at home.

Surprised at Mowbary's post match comments, thought they were unlucky and apparently frustrated at poor results despite a string of excellent performances?!?!?! Also accused Wigan players being at fault for Coventrys late tackles, because we passed the ball too quickly....
