Quoted from oldun


I like Mitch Rose. I think some fans misunderstand the role he is being asked to play which is holding midfielder in front of the back 4 to frustrate opposition attacks and he is doing this well. He is fairly quick and physically strong. Think of the good old fashioned shoulder charge he did to win us the ball or the countless times he closed players down and nicked the ball. We have not had someone like him for ages. Key player in my eyes. Only criticism he sometimes gets too deep and ends up on top of our central defenders going for the same ball. Otherwise get off his case!!


I like Mitch Rose. Alongside McAllister as the defensive midfield, he will fit nicely, Kelly, Jones & Dembele as the attacking 3.

I'd play Osborne ahead of Kelly when he's fit as well.

Just reading this on Coventry's website. Didn't realise you couldn't get between the player and the ball and have to allow the shot.

It happened right in front of the away end so most City fans there had a really clear view. It was a stonewall penalty. The ball was in front of Vincenti who had a clear sight for a shot on goal and would almost certainly have scored. As he went to strike the ball a Grimsby defender put his foot between Vincenti's foot and the ball. Vincenti therefore kicked the defender's foot and went over. I was certain the referee would give the pen as he was right on the spot. I couldn't believe it when he waved play on. If there was an injustice with the first goal (and I don't think there was), his decision to allow it only made up for the terrible decision with the penalty.

Must admit from the Upper Findus looked like nailed on pen to me, which I believe it was Berrett, would probably have meant he received his second yellow much earlier in the game.

Ref was poor all game & can't remember last time we had a"homer" assail seem anti Grimsby to me!!!

But surely you don't have to allow the attacker a free hit at the ball? Or have I got it wrong again.😔

Watching on I follow I was certain it was a penalty. I was in shock when the ref didn't give it. But I think the balance in the middle was poor yesterday. Berrett and Summerfield offer neith adequate defensive cover or attacking impetus. I like the idea of McAllister and rose in there with jones giving more of an attacking midfield role. But the way we set up yesterday was too negative, and I'm sure I wasn't the only one who could foresee the game after seeing the team sheet.

I had a great view, just behind the ref and I thought he got the penalty decision right, although I certainly wouldn't have been surprised if he had given it.

Looked a penalty to me as Berrett looked to tackle the man rather than the ball.

Not sure what people have seen in McAllister, many on here are suggesting we shouldn't make assumptions based on one game this season yet some seem to think that McAllister is the answer to our midfield problems based on 4 games 3 of which were a year ago.

Let's hope he is what we are missing.

Hmmm. If you put your foot in front of the ball to stop a shot, are you guilty of obstruction? Given how much leeway defenders are given in obstructing forwards when letting the ball run out of play, perhaps not. Looked a penalty to me it must be said and the chance came after some pretty shambolic organisation and defending.

As an aside about Rose, I think he did well in patches but attempted to overplay at times as well. He needs to get his challenges in and win tackles then control the ball and move it on as quickly as possible to our ball players rather than trying anything too clever himself.
