Bonkers game at Millwall yesterday.
Bartman (GK Bartosz Bialkowski) had a 'mare for the first.
Wycombe had a corner fly straight in, only to be ruled out for a very soft foul.

We scored a pen. We *should* have had two more.
We hit the woodwork 3 times.

 

But I suggest you all watch the highlights below (or skip to 1:45) to see what our 6'7 lumbering mountain of a centre back, Jake Cooper, so-very-nearly almost pulls off.

It's funny, and I said this at the time which was later confirmed on Quest. If you watch Bart as the ball is coming in, their striker has got hold of his arm. As he starts to head to the far post you can see his arm being tugged meaning that he couldn't get back in time. How the hell the ref/lino caught that though is beyond me.

 

Did you watch last night? Might be one of the best performances I've seen from a Millwall side since we had Cahill (first time obviously!). Mahoney has come out of nowhere and looks to be unstoppable at the moment but we were excellent all over the pitch. Hope we can find some consistency.

I absolutely did, because Millwall on the telly never gets old.

We were outstanding. I'm really enjoying how hard we work, Romeo was up and down that right flank more than a prozzie's gusset.

I also like our two pronged attack:  

1. Can Wallace do something spectacular. 
IF 1 FAILS...
2. Stick it on Smith's face.

We (Coventry) lost to another late goal today. I don’t think we’re far away, they just need to up the fitness levels a little. 
 

We did score with a header from 25 yards though so should really get a bonus point.

Playing junior football (under 10’s) I think. I went to volley it from the edge of the area but instead it hit my knee and looped straight into the top corner. Best/worst goal I have ever scored.

Fast remembering how nutty Championship football is. Watford started the season tight at the back but blunt up front, the defence gradually got shitter and we've only picked up going forward over the last couple of games but somehow we're 2nd. Bizarre.

Thought Wednesday looked decent in the first half against Swansea last night. We were moving the ball around a lot quicker than under Monk. Swansea changed it around in the second half and looked a lot better because of it. A point was the fair result. We still look desperately short of attacking threat.

Milllwall are in with a genuine shout of challenging for the playoffs again. Gary Rowett has us playing this crazy fluid 3-5-1-1 system that really suits us, despite it playing several players in roles that they haven't really ever played before.

 

 

This description of our footballing style has aged worse than Whole Foods 12-month Cave aged Cheddar, if you substituted dairy for actual human shit.

Lovely result in the Welsh Derby. Thought Cardiff would be up for it, but it wasnt like that at all. 

 

I don’t think we’ve actually played well in the derby since Bellamy scored at the Liberty.

 

Diabolical today from us. If Harris hadn’t won the last 4 after being close to the sack - he’d have been gone tomorrow.

 

We are now 4 consecutive derby games without a goal and now have to stress about the chance of the double happening for the first time ever and as it’s late March then there is a chance they’ll be Swansea fans to witness it.

Mad old game against Birmingham last night. We started off looking like a a team wanting to make up for the derby defeat while Brum appeared to have forgot to field a full 11.  Scored, should have had more then decided to give up and let Birmingham come back and they scored. 1-1 H/T.  Second half - fairly even then defence went to sleep and let a Birmingham player skip past half the team. 2-1 Brum.

 

Then it went mad as former Cardiff keeper, Etheridge pulled off a couple of great saves then we got a penalty which he also saved. Then we scored 2-2.

 

We wnt back to sleep and Birmingham kept skipping through our defence getting closer and closer to finding a winner,

 

And then we went up the other end - Morrison header. 3-2 and its 5 wins out of 6.
