Re: Coventry away ... all tickets a fiver

For my money twas the best 90 mins of the season, Coventry (with all their resources) never looked like getting into the game, we completely outdid em,johnson laid both goals on fer clarky. another everyman did his bit.

Re: Coventry away ... all tickets a fiver

Best away performance from Stanley since....West Ham?
Really assured from all XI, played a team game, closing down in numbers, making themselves available for a pass.
Coventry were very poor. Maybe Professor Coleman's being diplomatic mentioning their injury list, etc, or maybe they had their minds on the FA Cup. But definitely Stanley made them look second rate; even when they had the ball they rarely threatened.
Very impressed with Messrs Johnson and Dunne, as relative new boys, and good to see Captain Conneely back.
And great support from the Syanley fans.

Re: Coventry away ... all tickets a fiver

No one entering the Ricoh Arena for the first time could fail to be impressed by such grandeur
How can it be that this one-time member of footballs elite, winners of the FA Cup, are reduced to plying their trade in Englands 4th tier of football?
How are the mighty fallen.
I predicted that Coventry's bumper home crowd of over 27,000, would will their team to victory. How wrong could I be?
Enter little Accrington Stanley to spoil the sky-blues big party.
Coventry were outplayed by perhaps the most complete performance I've witnessed by Stanley this season.
They came close to scoring on a couple of occassions but then, we too could easily have doubled our goal tally on another day.
Every man wearing red - and 1 in black, gave 100% today. But my 'm.o.m.' would go to young Johnson who imho, was simply outstanding.
He took on the role of missing captain McConville with skill & aplomb, creating many of our best moves.
Stanley's 515 travelling faithful - almost 50% of our normal fan base, made a monkey of the home advantage by outsinging our hosts from start to end.
Today will live long in the memory of every Stanley fan who had the privelige to be there.
In all honesty, I didn't have much hope of winning today.
If fate decrees we achieve promotion this season, surely this will be remembered as the 3 points that secured it.

easy answer. bad owners and
bad decisions. its not where or what a ground you play on its the skill and character of the players on it. roll on tuesday night at the little wham.

Re: Coventry away ... all tickets a fiver

The match has been well summed by earlier posters above.
Maybe it was a mistake for Coventry to draw in such a big crowd, with the really cheap admission fee, as it might just have added to the pressure on their team to win. They were missing a couple of players through injury too. Having said that our boys were magnificent right down the team list. Chappers got better and better and did a couple of really confident high catches above a crowded penalty towards the end of the 90 minutes. Very pleasing to see and with his clean sheet I hope that he can repeat it consistently for the rest of the season.

Johnson set up the first goal with a driving run round the outside of their right back and he reproduced that determination a number of times throughout the match with similar runs. His corners too were hit hard and caused problems in their goal mouth. I could list all the players again and wax lyrically about how well they all played but essentially this was just a WONDERFUL TEAM PERFORMANCE.
I have to say that part of that team performance was THE INCREDIBLE SUPPORT FROM THE STANLEY FAITHFUL in our long thin triangle of seats in a corner of the ground. The continuous noise and the creativity of our singing still amazes me......!!!
Well done to the 513 loyal RED SUPPORTERS who out sang their 28,000 !!!
The players really do appreciate our support and once again they showed this at the final whistle.

What a GRAND DAY OUT!
ONWARDS AND UPWARDS
ON STANLEY ON

KEEP THE FAITH

Re: Coventry away ... all tickets a fiver

It tickled me that Coventry put the words up on the big screen, karaoke style, to try & get their fans to sing their support
Fantastic performance from all our lads & a well deserved result made for a brilliant day, if I was being picky I'd say they were a little over zealous with searching our fans on the way in, but whatever floats their boat - certainly didn't detract from our enjoyment of the day

Must've just been the female steward then, she searched my bag (standard), then my coat pockets & even inside me hat! All in the name of safety I know but I think what topped it was asking someone to open their flask & sniffing it????
