SUPPORTING Coventry City can be a bit like a rollercoaster.You can be low one minute,and super high the next.
We're certainly on a high at the moment.And why not the cynic in me thought the two home wins in a week would be followed by two away defeats.
Newcastle may have ended up as expected but a lot of spirit was shown in the first half. The win against Palace was one of our better away performances this season.
Ive been talking about our poor away performances this season. An improvement in those is the best way of ensuring a top half finish
NICKNAMED Paulo Wanchope by his team-mates, Carl Baker is fast becoming a fans' favourite for his exciting runs with the ball seemingly Velcroed to his feet.
CHRIS Coleman has told his Coventry City players to stick to what they've been doing when they line up against Scunthorpe tomorrow.
ONE game at a time is the football clichÃÂ© Coventry City boss Chris Coleman is more than happy to adopt as he looks to sneak the Sky Blues further up the Championship table.
IT HAS been a good start to my loan spell, picking up a couple of wins and I am enjoying working with the lads and the manager.

THIS IS a passionate plea from a loyal Sky Blues supporter of over 40 years who has seen many ups and downs while watching his beloved team.
I'm urging all football fans in Coventry and the local area to support their local big club in the very competitive Championship.
Why not come and try the 'Sky Blues experience' at the mighty Ricoh Arena?
Let's get behind our team and try toÃÂ support them back to their rightful place in the Premier League.
I RECENTLY wrote about the declining attendances atÃÂ the Ricoh and it has brought a mixed reaction.
All fair comments, but nothing I didn't expect. But it still comes down to excuses at the end of the day.
Pleasey says I should think before I write. Well, I did, and I have done before this one. Here goes with my further thoughts on the issue...
RAY Ranson has issued a rallying call to Coventry City's floating fans.
STRIKER Jon Stead is looking forward to a bright end to the season after being impressed with his new Coventry City team-mates.
IT MIGHT be coincidence but since James McPake returned to the side, City have won 5, drawn 3 and lost only 1 out of 9 Championship games. During those games, City have conceded only 6 goals, three of those coming in the Ipswich game.
Having watched a number of those games, I think his no-nonsense style of defending and solid partnership formed with the impressive Richard Wood is a key reason for this impressive return.
Add this to the best goalkeeper in the Championship and some strong performances from both Wright and Cranie and City look solid at the back.
Chris Coleman has conceded that his Coventry City side could launch a late push for the Championship play-offs.
AS VICTORIES go, they don't come much bigger than in tricky away games hot on the heels of a heavy midweek defeat at the hands of the league leaders.
SOMETIMES when City bring in a player who's not a name were familiar with from a lower division club it's very easy to sneer
But in these days of mass foriegn imports there are still cases of quality players who've found themselves in the lower divisions
in his short time with the club Carl Baker has impressed me as a player of great technique who will be a great asset to the squad.
