Can Coventry City play attacking football and be successful too ?
AS an onlooker on Sunday at the final day premier league games I got absorbed in it
and what high drama was served up,one minute one club was going down then the next
It just proves what we have all known for many years that football is the most exciting sport,
it can be cruel and pleasing all at the same time no wonder it's watched and played by so many.
But it made me just wish that the Sky Blues were involved in some exciting drama, but not fighting relegation but at least in the play offs.
I am a huge admirer of Holloway and his Tangerine troops they never give in and still want to play attacking football even when they know they should keep things tight.
And our very own new boss has the same mindset it seems as Holloway,great for us fans of this refreshing style of play but alas to be successful you have to be a bit boring at times,which is often called winning ugly.
It's all very well knocking it about and scoring goals but if you can't defend you are going to end up losing more than you win, hence Blackpools drop back into the Championship.
But it can be a dilemma for managers do they stick with their attacking philosophy,or do they change thinking and have a more bland approach ?
Most fans want an attacking passing team to watch but also one that is a winning one too,so i look forward to see if Andy Thorn sticks with his style of play,great if it turns out to be successful but we don't want to be known as a side who play pretty football but struggle to defend a lead.
