  • 2nd gear all game.

    Onto the next one
  • Crap performance, all looked leggy and lacklustre, Fosu back to his worst for us, never passing quickly and giving the ball away in dangerous positions, Pratley, despite the goal, looked pretty poor and wasn't a worthy replacement for Aribo. Need another player who can create things from a deeper position, Fosu and Reeves really let us down in that regard

    It seems we started slowly, changes made with Grant & Marshall coming on, equalised ..... and then conceded late, when their player was allowed time and space on the ball.

    This.

    Should never have taken Bielik off. Chucking a kid on to help us hold the game is not going to help him develop.

  • We were shit
    Coventry lacked quality but had a lot of fight and running
    Liked their RB. Looked like Dijksteel but with attacking intent. Think they have him on loan from Chelsea.

    Get us Cullen and Aribo back and we’re all good for playoffs.

    Real difficult to think of any postives after that performance. We never got our of second gear and struggled to play our passing game. Set pieces and long balls were our only method ot getting a goal.

    I don’t think Coventry deserved to get the win but we were not at the races. Coventry did a number on us. Whenever we had the ball we look static and struggled to find any space to open Coventry up.

    Midfield was completely wrong. In hindsight we should have played 4-4-2 with Marshall on the wing. Fosu was exceptional on Saturday, terrible today. Ajose looked lost.

    Very frustrating day at the office.

    Poor first half looked a bit better after the break when changes were made especially Marshall who offered some attacking width. We managed to get ourselves back into the game from a set piece converted by Pratley after his poor start. We then succumbed to a late winner not the first time this season. If I'm honest we were second best most of the match a bit like the Blackpool game so time to regroup and we go again on Saturday at Barnsley where I'd take a point right now.
  • Aribo longer term injury. That’s trouble.

    Well there's a surprise. Charlton don't do 1-2 week short term injuries.
  • Badly need some central midfielders back and fit!
  • Got what we deserved: Nothing! Allowed them too much space and time. On the occasions we attacked it was all too slow and predictable. The subs all looked to be better than those they replaced, that gave us a bit of hope - especially Marshall - but it was only temporary.

    Only good thing is that The Ricoh is very close to the motorway, so it doesn't take long to get moving afterwards.
  • Our midfield is cursed

    JFC, Cullen, Aribo, Lapslie, Ward

    It’s ridiculous
  • You can imagine Bowyer's post match comments:

    "We didn't really turn up, did we?"

  • Only saw second half, but we were poor. Second to the ball. gave them all the space in the world to do what they wanted to do, and no cohesion or bite.
    Marshall and Taylor were the only 2 to come out with any credit.
    Solly's aerial challenge in extra time sorta summed it up when he went up for a header and missed the ball by a long distance and handled it at chest level to give the impetus back to them.

    We got what we deserved and that was the square root of a mince pie. Failed to deal with the movement on the wings and their 23 Caused us all sorts of problems. We tried to stick to a game plan that wasn’t working and then when we changed it with Marshall going down their wing we still couldn’t handle heir wide play. Second best to everything and their keeper had one of the easiest games he will play in.
  • wasn't there ..stats suggest we were well on top .. ANOTHER late late goal does for us

    I think the ref took pity on us when Solly did that as he blew for FT straight after. You are right though that summed up our whole game. Utter crap.
  • What's actually wrong with Aribo?
  • We played narrow, they exploited the space wide first half. Their full backs bombing on. Marsh coming on pushed them back, and we had a little flurry of pressure, but nothing amazing.
    Second goal for them was too easy, Fosu watched his man come inside, Lapo tried coming in to cover but the lad got his shot away.
    After two good performances, Fosu was disappointing. Coventry done their home work and was on his touch, back to goal, and lost possession in our own half.
    Gutting. But we didn’t deserve to win, a draw would’ve been fair, but just slightly.
    Coventry weren’t great, but we always slip in these away games which is frustrating.
    No idea how Bow will pick a midfield for Saturday with Lapo and Aribo out.
