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.

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 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 »
