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 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 »

Coventry City are no rush to make some signings according to manager Tony Mowbray

Coventry City are no rush to make some signings according to manager Tony Mowbray, who also says that he is looking at making some value additions and not some expensive name to the squad. It is seen as a direct statement towards prudency from the club that has suffered several financial problems over the years. The former West Brom manager has unearthed some great players over the years and he is prepared to wait in order to find those names at Coventry. The club had an indifferent League One campaign after finishing just below the top half of the table.

Unless the club strengthen significantly in the summer, it looks like they will not be challenging for even a play-off place. However, there is plenty of time left to the close of the transfer window and Mowbray can still look forward to making some valuable additions. Even though the price goes up as the window approaches, longer negotiations may help reduce the price. Coventry managed only two wins in the last two months of the campaign. This poor end of season form was a major reason behind the club missing out on a top-10 finish. Mowbray remains confident that the club are not far away from challenging for promotion.
