Andreu disappointed with result

Coventry City midfielder Tony Andreu has stated that he is disappointed with the results that saw his side lose by 3-2 on their home ground.


He said that this was a major setback for him and the team and that he is looking forward to seeing the club bounce back in the coming weeks.

The midfielder scored his first goal for the club in this match and said that it was a disappointment to have not managed to get a result from that game.

Indeed Coventry City started the match poorly and found themselves 2-0 in the first half. Tony Andreu said that the first half was really bad for the host team and they deserved to be trailing at the interval. However, he feels that the team played much better in the second half and managed to score two goals that allowed them to equalize.

However, they will again allow Shrewsbury Town to score another goal on a free-kick in the closing stage of the game. Read the rest of this entry »

Coventry City aiming for promotion

Coventry City manager Mark Robins has stated that he wants his team to push for promotion at the end of the season.


He said that it is the objective of any team to win promotion and that Coventry City is no different.

He admitted however that we are at an early stage of the pre-season and it would take time to assess whether the team will manage to do it. He said that there is plenty of new faces in the team and that they will need some time before getting used to their surroundings and to play at their best level.

Mark Robins was speaking just after a pre-season match that saw his side plays against Sutton United. He said that he deliberately looked to play against a non-league opposition as they were very physical and this is the kind of opposition that they will be coming against in the league.

Jon Whitney knows Atmosphere of Ricoh Arena will be Unfavorable

Jon Whitney knows that the atmosphere at Ricoh Arena on Saturday is not going to be peaceful at all as the home fans there will try a lot of things to show their dissent against the top brass of their club, but, he is not bothered about it as the coach of the visiting team.


The previous time when Ricoh Arena had hosted a game, there was a deliberate attempt by the spectators to somehow not let the game progress and for that; they threw a lot of objects towards the pitch as a result of which the game was not able to be started on usual time.

Whitney suspects that it may be the same during his team’s game as well and it may turn out to be a scenario where the game has to be stopped at some point and started again and then stopped again because of the obstructions caused by the spectators, but, he reckons that’s not going to affect his boys because he has got them prepared.

Coventry City looks fragile

New Coventry City manager Mark Robin said that his team appears to be quite fragile and lack match fitness.


He believes that his side is not good enough at the moment to compete in League One. He made the statement after his side suffered their third defeat in a row against MK Dons.

He said that he was surprised with what he has seen on the pitch and he cannot understand how the players suffered physically. For him, the League One is a demanding league, and it is important that players are at their peak physically if they want to win game.

However, he admitted that there are signs of progress and that the players are slowly getting accustomed to his playing style.

But at the moment the players do not seem to be able to play like this for 90 minutes, and this is likely to cause problems. Read the rest of this entry »

VENUS DISAPPOINTED AFTER SHEFIELD UNITED LOSS

Coventry City interim manager Mark Venus has expressed disappointment that his team where unable to salvage anything from the clubs defeat to Sheffield United during the week.


The coach, who may likely watch the fans protest for as long as he remains in Coventry, told BBC Coventry the reason for the fans protest.

“We played a good footballing team with a bit of experience and know-how, and I thought we matched them. We worked hard, gave it our best and the longer the game went on I felt, the more threat we had.

“But to give a late goal away is where we are at the moment,” he said.

During the match with Sheffield United, City fans invaded the pitch twice in a protest directed at owner Sisu, who seem to be doing nothing about the team recent poor run of form. Coventry currently lies one point off the bottom of league having lost 6 games in a row. Read the rest of this entry »

COVENTRY GET A DRAW AT WALSALL

Coventry City were forced to a draw by their hosts, Walsall in a League One clash on Saturday, 29th October 2016.


The result saw City leave the relegation zone after the game at the Bescot Stadium. City got the match opener but the hosts claimed a point as they equalized.

Ruben Lameiras struck in the opening minutes of the game to prove that the visitors wanted to win. His curling shot was inches away from the opener. The Sky Blues got their opener in the 36th minute through Andy Rose. Marvin Sordell sent a low cross ten yards out but Rose reacted faster than the Walsall defenders to convert the opportunity.

The goal forced the home side to push for an equalizer. Lee Burge almost allowed it before the half time whistle as he spilled a shot from Adam Chambers. Chambers had directed a well-hit shot from 30 yards for the City shot stopper to spill but later recover. Both teams went on recess but after the break, Coventry could have put the game beyond Walsall. Daniel Agyei struck but the Walsall goalkeeper Neil Etheridge stopped it from being the second goal.

Tony Mowbray going to search the suitable men to buy for Club

While the last date for buying someone from his club has gone with the window closing, it’s still possible to buy someone who is not contracted to any club.


So, Tony Mowbray is now going to search the suitable men whom he can buy from the list of free agents.

According to Mowbray, certain clubs in the third division are trying to make a ridiculous number of signings and are going for almost all the players which are up for sale and since, they are not backing off from spending high, they can seal any deal they are interested in which is a problem for other clubs.

Mowbray has managed to have some decent buys, but, they are youngsters and while in the view of Mowbray, they would be useful, he reckons it would be ideal if he can rope in some seasoned campaigners too from somewhere because his team is not the most experienced.

The former Middlesbrough player said, “We did our bit, we made the effort, but, you know when you are up against clubs which seem to want every name which is in the market and ready to spend anything, it gets complicated.” Read the rest of this entry »

Coventry City To Decide On Stadium For Use

Coventry City has completed a decade that has proven turbulent in many ways.

It might be looking at moving from the current Ricoh Arena, where it was playing. It had entered into talks with the Coventry Rugby club in playing at the Butts Park Arena. The club has confirmed talks about securing a deal. It would help expand the stadium to a size that would be comfortable for playing and will ensure that day revenue on non match days would be earned. This was a problem that they were facing at Ricoh Arena.

This decision will appeal to many fans of Coventry City. Many miss the previous location which was in the center of the city at Highfield road. They had been disillusioned with the faded life that the club had been leading at the Ricoh Arena. The ground is able to hold only 3000 but it can be expanded to hold about 15000.  This would be taken up when the Sky Blues decides to move in. If the pitch is successful the grounds would be looking to accommodate a maximum capacity of 25000. Read the rest of this entry »

The Dagenham & Redbridge Academy product Jones’ new contract with City will officially start on 1 July. The excited City manager Tony Mowbray told BBC Coventry & Warwickshire:

“It got a little bit tight at the end.

“After playing for us, a few clubs became even more alert than they already were and were potentially trying to hijack a deal, but Dagenham and Jodi and his family remained loyal to our agreements.

“I like his directness and his positive play. We can develop him. He can become a goal scorer as well. He can dribble around the end of the box, get a yard and shoot with his left foot. We’re excited about him. Read the rest of this entry »

Eustace will handle the team at Aggborough in the summer after their relegation was made sure with the goal less draw against Barrow last Saturday.

He was involved in a total of 98 matches, putting the ball past the goal keeper 10 times before joining Stoke City in 2003.

The Ex-Coventry star also played for Watford and Derby County before being released in June 2015.

Tony Mowbray, the Sky Blues coach, in the summer after he left Derby, played Eustace but admitted that he didn’t think he’d fit alongside John Fleck in midfield.
