Time for Coventry City to wake up from the play off dream
WITH a return of two points from the last nine it's surely time to forget about this play off talk.
As Jim Brown said in the Telegraph on Saturday it was always a long shot and maybe we all got far to excited. After the draw against Leicester it would be easy to get depressed looking at our play off hopes
But putting all that aside to see City play as poorly as they did in the first half and have the character to pull back and get a draw was absolutely great.
As I've said all season if we are to escape from this division we have to produce consistent performances away from home
This is the season we played positively at Newcastle. We beat Crystal Palace away,and we recovered from two down to draw at Leicester.
There have been many poor results and poor performances in the mix which have meant a potentially great season will just be a good one. But when Chris Coleman says a top ten finish will be progress he's obviously right
We need to achieve enough good results in the run in to achieve that. Hopefully we can do that and plan for next season
We began this season deciding not to spend as much as we hoped in the August window. We've clearly not scored enough goals this year. Our top scorer has managed a goal every three games.
I believe a prolific scorer would have helped push us further up the table. Could we use Michael Doyle as part of a deal to get Beckford next season?. Have we the money to get Stead in on a permanent transfer?
The real question is can we turn out a team next season who will consistently produce performances home and away?. This is the question posed by Ian Palmer in his last blog and it's the key one.
You have to remain positive as a fan so I prefer to remember the second half against Leicester. It would be nice if we could turn up and produce two decent halves against West Brom though
