Phils Chelsea story....
at 10:45 26 May 2024

One part I don't like, the United saga dragging on with their review next week. We really can't afford for this to be dragging on another couple of weeks. That'd put us well into June and with quite a bit of transfer business to complete.

I wonder if the press jumped the gun with ETH future and yesterday may muddy the waters for United

Maresca favourite for Chelsea job...

Surprising. You'd think that they opt for KM if Maresca is a serious contender.

IF we do go up...What business needs to be done?
at 16:14 1 May 2024

Considering the players who will be out of contract & then the loans that'll be ending, that leaves quite a few holes that'll need filling.

Keepers - by all accounts, Vas is close to a new deal. I can see Walton moving on to get first team football. Although, he's on good money here & who knows if he's due more on promotion. As good as Vas has been, especially with his feet, he does let in some soft goals - see Hull 3rd goal and even last night. I do think we need another keeper myself.

LB - Need cover for Leif, goes without saying.

RB - Donacien will leave you'd assume. Tuanzebe has done a decent job there and Clarke is decent enough, but i'd like to see another RB myself and perhaps move Axel back into CB.

CB - Wolf, Burgess, Tuanzebe & Edmundson still on the books - assuming Tuanzebe gets his year option taken up. Another CB will amost certainly be added. I can see us switching to a back 5 next season, in which case we'd almost certainly need another CB.

CM - Ball almost certainly leaving & Travis will return to Blackbun. We need more legs in midfield - not sure Luongo & Morsy will both be able to play together next season. Could do with a more athletic midfielder. I could easily see a couple of CM's added.

Wingers - Sarmiento, Jackson, Aluko & Omari all leaving. Harness also hasn't featured much of late, so you'd think he's likely to move on. This will leave quite a big hole - i believe there was an option on Sarmiento to stay if we did win promotion, interested to see if we take that up. Will certainly need to strengthen in this area.

AM - Chaplin struggled a bit the last 10 games or so. Could see Taylor playing a bit more advanced next season perhaps. With Omari leaving, this is another area we'd need to improve.

Strikers - Moore likely to head back. Leaves Ali & Hirst. I could see a world where Ali gets loaned out for next season & another striker comes in.

Overall - we'd probably be looking at quite an extensive squad refresh overall. A lot of players out of contract/returning to clubs from loans - would leave the squad very thin.

So what can we actually expect from Coventry then?
at 21:32 28 Apr 2024

Looking at the side they put out at Blackburn, that still looks fairly strong to me. Wright, Simms, O'Hare & Palmer are all good players at this level.

I hope that Sheaf is still missing from their midfield - he's always looked a good player when i've seen him. They're also missing a few players at the back, so hopefully we might be able to take advantage of that.

I guess we just don't know what side will turn up - are they on the beach or will they be committed to getting a result?

Davis injury really doesn't sound great does it...

He will be a huge loss if he doesn't play these final 2 games.

IF we don't go up... Which players do we see being wanted by bigger clubs?
at 08:27 23 Apr 2024

Davis the obvious one, but do we forsee interest in any other players?

I'd have said Hirst, but I think his injury will put a hold on that one.

I think we'd keep the bulk of the squad and just lose Davis myself whilst having a turnover of the fringe players.

Understandable that the players would be as well!

Just feel completely drained with it all. Last night on a high, but tonight feels like a loss and a huge chance missed.

What's everyone's feelings about Moore starting then?
at 09:55 6 Apr 2024

I think he will start and play the first 55-60 mins. He's had 4 days since the saints game now, they'll know this is a massive game and probably the hardest of our final 6 games that we have remaining.

He's crucial to how we play and also crucial for defending set pieces, an area where Norwich are strong.

Vital he plays & I'm sure that he will.

What do we recon for Moore then?
at 09:12 2 Apr 2024

I'm not too confident he will be fit for Saturday. Didn't actually look like a contact injury? Unless it happened before the time he actually went down? The defender didn't seem to be anywhere near him at the time.

Can anyone clarify the yellow card/ban rules?
at 10:50 1 Apr 2024

Is Luongo now clear of a potential 2 match ban with him being on 9 bookings at 39 games?

Morsy still 3 away from a ban - if he gets them between now and the last game, will he miss 3 games? Could be a huge blow if this happens last game of the season and we end up in the play-offs!

Really poor last 15 after taking the lead....
at 14:47 9 Mar 2024

Just sat so deep, kept hoofing to no one and invited the pressure again and again and allowed balls into our box.

2nd goal was a clear foul on Davis though, another terrible decision by the officials but we should've dealt with the corner still.
