Just seen the highlights/goals on CH5. Whoever was bashing RCC is a bit, well  Doh ...One worldie, one pen and one thronker.

How we didn't score in that melee about one yard away, i'll never know. I counted at least five bites of the old cherry in that moment.

Anderson has to hang his head for the creation of Coventry's goal three. Even if the player shaped himself well to execute the goal. Well took but should never have had the chance.

Think we're pretty harsh on ourselves today. Indeed, play that way in most games and I'm certain we'll win more than lose.

On a side note though, Mullin and Taylor should be being utilised as impact subs and are both worth 45 mins min. Taylor offers consistency in corners, free kicks and crosses. Today that could have been the difference. Mullin offers grit and determination in a more controlled manner than Dunne. He seems like he's hell bent on getting sent off. Does not justify a start let alone 90 mins. In fact has Taylor's contribution been on the pitch, we could have been talking about a Mullin headed winner. Flitcroft needs to utilise his squad efficiently. Do that and we could easily turn into the team to beat.

Agreed up until here. They were a bigger threat down our left and Taylor would have got skinned at full back. Iandoloís deliveries were mostly up there with Taylorís today, think heís learnt a thing or two off him.
As for Mullin in midfield which I presume you are suggesting if replacing Dunne, that is just so wrong in every way

Aha-haha. It's whatever you want it to be   Only joking, it's basically a beast of a goal, a corker if you like. It's the brainchild of BBC Sport's Dan Walker, in reference to any goal scored that has similarity to that of a Tony Yeboah-esque finish.

Yeah, it's fine. You won't embarrass yourself  Cheesy

Nahh the suggestion would've been bringing Taylor in an advanced role as a winger on for Gordon/Anderson. It would've enhanced our attack and i'm certain we would've seen a goal assisted by him. No not suggesting it as a positional replacement. A good manager can change the shape within a match. Dunne off put Banks into a holding role and go to something like 4-3-3;

Iandolo LB, Lancs & Preston CB, Robbo RB; Taylor LW, Banks CM, Anderson/Woolery RW; Woolery/Anderson LF, Richards CF, Mullin RF

That would be an adaptable formation to change to, whilst in play for say the last 30 mins.

Means nothing, but a few comments from Coventry fans today:-

Was impressed with Swindon today. One of the best teams we have faced this season.
Should definitely be in the top 7 come May if they keep playing like that.

Agree with this, at 2-0 up you would think we would be on top but they stuck at it and moved the ball around well on a sticky pitch, they were a yard quicker for a good portion of the game and if they had scored in that goal mouth scramble they might well have gone on to win.

Impressed by Swindonís forward play today. They could easily have won the game.

spot on... the looked a decent side.

Maybe a plonker with a throttle! ,  Anyway watched the highlights late last night and no one else has mentioned it so maybe the cider has soaked in but have re-run the goal mouth melee several times and surely that was a handball on the line ?.

I thought so, looked clear from behind the goal. But hardly anyone appealed for it, so it was either shielded from those on the pitch it my eyes very much deceived me

On the game now the beer haze has gone. We actually played quite well yesterday. The difference was a worldy goal, a stupid penalty given away by Preston and a good finish after Keshi Anderson tried to dribble outside the area. I thought Iandolo was good when in advanced areas and his deliveries were excellent. Olly Banks has a good range of passing, not always on the button but picked out the wingers with 50 yard balls a couple of times and at least tried to pick out a red shirt. Norris hit the bar just after we made it 2-1 and we should have scored in the second half with 2 crazy goal mouth scrambles. Think Flitcroft taking off Woollery was a mistake as his pace was stretching them. Hopefully back to winning ways at home to Crewe on Saturday.

As usual I enjoyed my day out, good chat with some Cov fans in the casino after the game who are always friendly. They said our defence was shit, which I think is fair although Preston is much better than Lancashire and Robertson who are extremely limited defenders. At least Preston has the ability to do more than just whack the ball out of play. With Conroy back we should be a bit better in this respect.

Cannot believe our keeper is getting stick?!

He had fuck all to do but pick out two shots he could never get close to and a pen ...
RCC did little wrong yesterday at all, even the wonderful Vigs couldn't have stopped either goal and a penalty is always a keeper lottery. He failed to catch cleanly a couple of times but other than that his kicking is better than Vigs and he has little to do.

Quite liked the look of Richards when he came on, won some clever fouls which gives us opportunity to whip the ball in with Iandolo's good delivery.
If we play like that rest of the season we'll win more than we lose, Iandolo MOTM by a country mile.
Interesting how we all see different things in a game, I thought Richards offered nothing and that Iandolos deliveries other than for the goal were very poor.

Met some Cov fans back in the pub....they said if we had got a second we would of won....I agree..

The ref wasnt exactly shit but didn't stamp out the cynical stuff for both sides. The example was the Cov handball to prevent a scoring opportunity through ball...no booking and then a yellow for a Cov player for a wanky challenge.

Yeah think it was a common consensus that had we scored in that spell we would have won.

Agree about the ref some of the bookings were a bit random. The one where Marc Richards threw himself on the floor was just bizarre. (Unless that player had been fouling persistently I guess)

Could have been the turning point in the game,  suppose it's just one of those games - dominate and lose, need to get back on track next Saturday,  we're far from out of it yet.  There's always at least one team that comes with a late run, player's coming back -  let's hope its us.
