middle of the pitch for me is the big concern, sometimes we have 1 DM 2 CMs, then 3 DMS then 3 CMS, then 2AMs 1 CM, any time no one is in the DM position balls got slotted down the middle to easy

Simon, I honestly believe we are a decent attacking player or two away from a top 6 side. This team work hard but look like they are devoid of options once they get up top...

Today is one of our better in recent weeks and we cannot fault the effort... :clap:

LATEST SCORE: COVENTRY CITY 1 - 1 CARDIFF CITY (57 mins)
Bluebird scorer: Josh Bowler, 29 mins


I’d have to agree on this showing. Just need to get some consistency.

Brilliant. We’re actually attacking, getting into their half with numbers. Great to see

What a fortunate goal. Coventry don’t deserve to be behind but do I care, do I f**k. Now let’s see the game out.

I think I know what you mean. A lot of our midfield players are too similar. The worst being Ralls and Wintle who have proved time and time again they just don't work together!

Siopis is our best DM. Ralls keeps things ticking as an 8. Ramsey as 10, but in his absence, probably Turnbull.

lol hard to type what i mean about the midfield, basically i think they run all over leaving big holes instead of keeping to their tasks.

Like Sip should sit in front of the back 4, intercept passes, follow a runner etc
Ralls is kinda like the pivot, sit in front of Sip but does go in his space unless needed and doesnt go too far forward. Then i have Col/Rams/Turn who plays to the right of Ralls, more freedom to go forward and roam.

But i keep seeing them all over the place, they should make a triangle imo and move around in that shape, gives wingers and full backs people to play off.

Quite often we have big gaping holes in the midfield up opposition half. Then we have times they all go up and we have a big hole behind and we are beaten with 2 passes

About time the players actually put an effort in.

Fair play. That’s all we ask for, put the effort in!
