“Robbie Keane”

published 30/08/2000

ProA good future for him

ConsCoventry have lost out

Coventry are a club with great ambition and a great chairman. Last season Brain Richardson has £7,000,000 on division one Wolves’ star and full Ireland striker, Robbie Keane. On his full debut he scored the only goals of the game in a 2-0 victory over Midlands rivals, Derby County. His goal...

ProYou may learn something

ConsYou may wish you hadn't

Born and bred in Coventry and now living in Suffolk I followed Coventry City since I can remember. My dad was a long serving season ticket holder for more than 40 years and he introduced me to Coventry City Football Club. I am a firm believer in supporting the local team of the city you were born...

Reports today and yesterday in newspapers that Inter Milan are considering to put in a bid for Robbie Keane in the region of £12.5 million. I think if they do make an offical bid Coventry will accept as this is a lot of money for them. I think this will be a big disapiontment for the Coventry...

“Depth in squad”

published 26/07/2000

ProGood attacking quality

ConsNo real playmaker

When the individual squad of Coventry City is analysed there are indeed some very talented individuals .The likes of Keane,Hadji,Chippo Rouselle and in my opinion Zuniga (Who looks a first class finisher) .However Coventry do not have strength in depth in all positions to really be threatening...

“Sky Blue Saga”

published 08/05/2001

Progood player manager, some great players

Consfirst division, strange transfer policy

One of the league's 'forgotten' teams, most people don't even know that Coventry were the third longest surviving team in the top flight until their relegation a few seasons ago. The legend that is Jimmy Hill even played for them in his prime. So I thought I would take a look at my favourite team...

“Whats the point”

published 10/08/2000

ProNever go down

ConsNever do anything

What is the point of teams like Coventry. When they were involved in relegation battles at least there was a bit of excitement around the club. Now all they seem to do is hang around just above the danger zone. And thats about it!!! Not only that but they get a really promising player in Robbie...

For as long as I have been a Football fan, Coventry City have held a place in the top flight. This is one of the most remarkable, and least remarked upon facts in the game. For over 3 decades Coventry, a town which for all its virtues is hardly a football hotbed has had a topflight football side...

“Hopes for the season”

Prohendry and palmer

Consloss of McAllister

I am tempted to give Coventry a mid-table position for next season as, on paper, they look to have a good squad. However, there are so many teams out there that appear to have good squads and I believe that Coventry will not be improving on last year’s position of 14th. In fact, I think they will...

they don't really have a point do they? they have now begun to pull away from relegation trouble far too early, yet will not challenge for europe in the forseeable future. so what do coventry hope to acheive? many clubs in their position often look to the cups for sloace, yet coventry rarely seem...

Progood players

Consread

Coventry City are one of them teams that always get caught up in the relegation battle but who are in my view good enough to avoid it. They have some very good players who consistently under performed, all they need is luck, no way in my view should they be so low down in the league. They have...

“City - it's about time”

published 03/08/2000

Prodecent squad, plenty of money, good manager

Consdo they believe they can do it

Coventry City. What do you think of when you see the name? A Premiership club. Gordon Strachan as Manager. Tidy ground. Serial Relegation avoiders. Well, isn't it about time that they did something? Strachan has had money to spend - he has brought in quality players in Chippo and Hadji and more...

I have visited Highfield Road several times in the last few years and I have noticed a big change in the attitude of this club. I had the good fortune to be a VIP guest at a Coventry match when they played Liverpool the season before last and got to see behind the scenes. Coventry is a club with...

I was born in Coventry and lived here until I was 7, when I moved to Ireland. Deciding to continue supporting Coventry City has proved hellish, but ultimately satisfying! As I tell those who try to slag me off, at least I have a genuine reason to support a Premiership team. Unsurprisingly, most...

“A fairly good team”

published 25/11/2000

ProNot sure

ConsFalling apart

Last season, everything except away form was going in the right direction. There was a decent squad, including the great Robbie Keane, in form Chippo and Hadji, few players injured. However, this season has gone not very well at all. Bellamy has replaced Keane which has proved to be no where near...

ConsStruggle to hold on to their best players

Coventry have struggled to maintain their top flight status for as many seasons as I can remember, and rarely make any decent progress in the league. Gordon Strachan has without a doubt done a great job for them in many respects, and was starting to bring together a good team. However they have...
