The First Time Ever I Saw Your Team: Coventry City

Salut Banner3(featured image)

John McCormick writes: Pete Sixsmith makes reference to events at and around Coventry City FC in this piece. The Coventry Telegraph is a good source of information and includes a countdown clock which will tell you how long it will be until CCFC play their last game at the Ricoh – and maybe in the […]

Sunderland vs Coventry City Who are You? ‘I’m a fan of any club with such a stunning following’

Jake: 'send them back to Coventry - pointless if not naked on horseback'

Laurie Kilpatrick is an innocent man. He wasn’t even an egg, as one of my daughters used to say, on the infamous night that Jimmy Hill – er – orchestrated the perfect finish to Coventry City’s final game of the season, a match delayed by congestion against Bristol City: making sure the players of both […]

SAFC vs Coventry City Guess the Score: the home run

Jake: 'guess the score - just for fun. Click my banner'

When you are in sight of an automatic promotion place, three successive home games might appear something of a gift. But nerves play a part, too, and often enough this season Sunderland have suffered less in this respect on their travels than at the Stadium of Light, says Monsieur Salut. The first of that trio […]

McCormick's Craic(featured image) full size 640 x 138

Part one of our mid-season review looked forward to the Christmas games. Part two looked at what had happened up to New Year’s Day. Part three was delayed until yesterday, and I’m taking the time to update that post after yesterday’s results. The first part of this one is the same as yesterday, given that […]

Part one of  our mid-season review looked forward to the Christmas games. Part two looked at what had happened up to New Year’s Day. Part three was meant to go out after the Luton game. Repetitive strain injury decided otherwise and I still have to take care so here’s what I’ve managed, with a focus […]

Salut!’s Seasonal Summary. Part Two: from Bristol to Blackpool

McCormick's Craic(featured image) full size 640 x 138

By now you should have read part one of this series, the preview of the Christmas period which I wrote for the SAFC programme. You might even remember some of the words I wrote, especially the conclusion: “Christmas and early January remain crucial, which for us means holding our own away and completing doubles over […]

Barnsley lurk behind Peterborough, Portsmouth and Sunderland, while Charlton and Coventry stutter.

With a break this weekend it’s time to revisit our “Ones to watch”. If you’ve been following this series you’ll remember that we’re tracking six clubs over the course of the season. The six were chosen by a people’s vote, that new tool of democracy,  with the club which came top of the poll – Coventry City – […]

Sixer’s Coventry City Soapbox: Peter sings the blues in Two Tone city

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……..are you a glass half full or glass half empty type of personality? This was one of those games where the moaners and complainers will point to the fact that we have only won one of our last five games while those of a more upbeat persona will point to the fact that […]

Sixer’s Coventry City Sevens: 1-1, not enough but could have been worse

Jake

Pete Sixsmith felt a draw was fair, and listening to Barnes and Benno, Monsieur Salut thought the same. Injuries – Loovens off in the first few minutes, with more to follow – certainly harmed our cause but we must somehow learn how to keep a clean sheet. Pete did not, he assures us, ride naked on […]

The First Time Ever I saw Your Ground: Coventry City, the Ricoh Arena and a glimpse of Highfield Road

Salut Banner5(featured image)

John McCormick writes: like Pete Sixsmith, I was at Goodison that night. Like Pete Sixsmith I condemned Jimmy Hill for his actions, especially his ‘holier than thou’ attitude afterwards. But, like Pete Sixsmith, I’m old enough to know it serves no purpose to harbour grudges against clubs or fans. It’s better to share some decent […]
