All I want for Christmas is a boxing day win
WHILE most Coventry fans would have a wry small at the departure of the ludicrous figure of Ken Dulieu I suspect like me what their looking for from the festive season is a win against Bristol City on Boxing Day
Being the team just above the relegation zone if we are ever to start the great comeback we simply must win that game. Whilst Kevin Halls is right we have got used to seeing Coventry City lose it's still possible that one win could lead to more
Yet looking at the team playing with such a desperate lack of confidence at times it's hard to see it happening. Andy Thorn rather like Dickens Mr Micawber bemoans his bad luck and "waits for something to turn up".
No team are eternally unlucky. If chances are missed its basically because of a lack of confidence. There are questions about the diamond formation. It's worth asking why the club can't be a home for Freddy Eastwood. And if two keepers were bought for competition why can't Dunn be given a chance
But the real question is why are these players who should be capable of so much more propping up the table.
Many fans look at the usual points safety margin and so we are gone already. That may or may not be so. In reality we need to achieve more points than the third bottom team
and that's it
But as Stuart Linnell says every week something has to change to make things happen.
Most teams get a surge in this situation from a change of manager. We can't afford to make a change it would seem.
But having Lee Carsley at the club who was so inspiring to his team mates on the field last season is a temptation. Big decisions may have to be made in this area
