  1. January - February 2024

    Moving into a new year and the second half of the season we have FA Cup and league action along with a little EFL Cup semi final to contend with as we go for our second final in three years.

    FA Cup Action
    As we enter into the FA Cup in the third round we were drawn against Arsenal which is a bit of a disaster as I had hopes of a bit of a run in the cup. Anyway, we welcomed Arsenal to the Ricoh Arena and managed to earn ourselves a replay as we drew 1-1 thanks to an equaliser from Sam Gallagher just after half time. Going into the replay we knew that if we progressed we would face Man United in the next round but it wasn't to be as we lost 2-0 with Arsenal hitting us with 2 goals late in the second half. That's us for this year as we go again next year.

    EFL Cup Action
    After somehow beating Liverpool 3-0 in the quarter finals we dodged a bullet and drew Brentford in the semi finals with it being a Manchester derby in the other semi final. Going into the first leg we were missing several players due to a sudden outbreak of a mysterious illness, anyway we visited Lionel Road and came back with a credible 0-0 draw. Going into the second leg we knew that if we progressed we would probably be facing Man United in the final as they had won the first leg 4-1.

    Going into the second leg we welcomed back Ocampo and Molumby into the team and it paid massive dividends. We fell behind after 20 minutes as Brentford went ahead through a Osako goal. It took us 6 minutes to get back on even terms thanks to a cracker of a free kick from Ocampo and we went into the second half in level terms. Second half began quietly but it did finish dramatically as Joe Evans-McCrum seen red for a second bookable offence on the 76th minute but then 3 minutes later we took the lead as Sam Gallagher poked in after a goalmouth scramble. The game finished 2-1 as we won and progressed to the final to face off against United who won 8-1 on aggregate against Man City.

    League Action
    Going into the New Year we had a lot going on. Going into January in the league were there or there abouts for the season so far but still had time to improve. We started off the year with 2-0 win against Southampton thanks to goals from Pereiro and Ocampo, we followed this is up with a 2-1 defeat against Aston Villa with Winks getting nothing more than a consolation. We welcomed Liverpool to the Ricoh Arena for what will be the last time and we came out 2-0 winners thanks to a double from Abel Ruiz. We ended the month with a 1-1 draw against Arsenal as they equalised in the 93rd minute. We finished in the month in 12th place as we still have hopes of finishing in the top half.

    Moving into February we had yet another lovely international break and it did us no favours. We went into the month with four games scheduled and ending it with 3 points from 4 games. We faced off against Man United first up and went home empty handed despite United going down to 10 men after 5 minutes as they won 2-0. We followed this up with a 2-2 draw at Chelsea with goals from Gallagher and youth prospect Babangida and a 3-3 draw at Watford with a double from Abel Ruiz and Joe Evans-McCrum got his first goal for the club to secure the draw. We ended the month with a 1-1 draw at Bournemouth with Winks getting a late equaliser to leave us in 13th place on 35 points.

    Transfer Action
    Outgoings
    January as per usual is a quiet transfer period for the club as I don't like to make any moves in I don't need to but I was forced to make a move due to a major outgoing. Prince Uzochukwu left the club and moved to Bayern Leverkusen for 12 million euros with a 15% add on for any future fee received by Leverkusen, this was disappointing as The only other major outgoing was club stalwart Gael Bigirimana leaving on loan to Getafe as he decided he has felt he has achieved all he has at the club as they also have a clause to make the deal permanent for 4 million euro.

    Incomings
    After Uzochukwu left the club we needed to bring it a decent replacement to bridge the gap in defence as we bring in our promising youth. We signed Ricardo Farcas from FC Groningen for 3 million euro as he came in to provide competition for Guneysu and Friis to pair with Doria in defence.

    Next update will be the EFL Cup final.

  2. EFL Cup Final 2024

    So here we go, our second final in three years and again its in the EFL Cup as we face off against Man United this time around. As expected any history we have Man United is heavily weighted in their advantage given the nature of our clubs anyway here we go.

    Build Up

    Going into it we both have came through some difficult games to get here with us obviously having to play a game more than United as we entered the 2nd round whilst they entered the 3rd round. Below is both teams journey to the final.
    A Coventry City/Sky Blues Special-efl-cup_-overview-stages.pngA Coventry City/Sky Blues Special-efl-cup_-overview-stages-2.png

    1st Half
    First half started off extremely slowly whilst United start straight out the blocks and put us under pressure from the off. Even with this pressure from United there was no clear chances in the first half with us only having 1 shot in total and it wasn't even on target.

    2nd Half
    Going into the 2nd half we started off straight out the blocks after a stirring team talk as we pushed United back for the 1st 10 minutes and we had our only clear chance of the game as Gallagher came close with him chipping the keeper only for the ball to rolling agonisingly wide. United finished the half strongly and could've and should've won in in the last 5 minutes as Morata slammed a shot wide whilst one on one with Wildsmith as it ended 0-0 in ordinary time.

    Extra Time + Penalties
    Extra time went through like a blur as there was no real chances for both teams and the game petered out and went to penalties. Going into the penalties it was all up in the air but unfortunately it wasn't to be as United ran out 4-3 winners. Doria, Ruiz and Rahman all converted for us but Molumby and Hamilton had theirs saved, whilst United converted 4 of theirs and Wildsmith saving Zuccarelli.

    Anyway on to next year.

  3. End of season run in 2023/24

    Here we go into the end of the season as we try to get over the disappointment of losing the EFL Cup final against United.

    Youth Intake
    First up we have the annual youth intake and it was another good year for the club as we welcomed in some potentially good players via the youth intake. We've secured two central defenders, a right back and a central midfielder who all have the potential to make it at the club.

    League Action
    March
    We started March by welcoming Newcastle to the Ricoh Arena and lost out 2-1 as we took the lead through Guneysu before Newcastle hit back with two late goals. Next up we went to Derby and lost the complete plot as we melted away and were hammered 3-0 as we were never in the game. After that defeat we followed it up with another one as we lost out 1-0 to Swansea thanks to old club legend Michael Folivi who scored just after half time. We ended the month at Everton and performed well as we ran out 3-0 winners thanks to a double from Ocampo and a wonder goal from jones. This left us in 13th place on 38 points with 6 games to go.

    April
    April began very quietly due to another international break as we only played 3 games during the month. First up we visited Middlesbrough and we prevailed thanks to a 3-2 victory with a double from Winks and a late winner from Ruiz. We then visited Man City and after a good defensive display we drew 0-0 and we finished the month by welcoming Spurs to the Ricoh Arena and we lost out 4-2 as Doria and Ruiz got nothing more than consolation goals after Spurs scored 4 in the first half. We finished the month in 13th place on 42 points with 3 games to go we could still make the top half.

    May
    Going into the final 3 games of the season we have a tough end but could still come out with a top 10 finish if results go our way. We started off against Stoke and lost 4-1 as Berahino scored all 4 as Ruiz got nothing more than a consolation for us. We then travelled to West Ham who hammered us 3-0 as they took the driving seat in the race for the title over United with West Ham having two to play and United 3 to play. Final game of the season saw us face off against Sunderland who boast a 34 year old Gareth Bale and a 32 year old Christian Eriksen and we drew 0-0 and we squandered plenty of chances. That's us for this season as we finished in 12th place on 43 points.

    Other announcements
    In other news in April I was offered an interview for the vacant Spurs job. The job itself is vacant due to Spurs sacking Jurgen Klopp after he was deemed not to up to standards this season.

  4. 2023/24 Wrap Up

    So we've finished yet another season in the Premier League and did well to finish mid table after yet another end of season meltdown. We finished the season in 13th place in the league whilst making the final of the EFL Cup before crashing out in the 3rd round of the FA Cup. West Ham won the league whilst United won the EFL and Chelsea took home the FA Cup. Derby, Aston Villa and Bournemouth were all relegated whilst West Brom, Sheffield Wednesday and Burnley are all promoted from the Championship.

    Going to the end of season awards they were much the same as last year. Doria took the Player of the Year award again with 49% of the vote with Jodi Jones coming second on 23% and Baba Rahman made the top 3 for the first time with 17% of the vote. Carlos Ocampo took home the goal of the season after a cracker of a free kick against Everton in the 3-0 win towards the end of the season. January buy Ricardo Farcas took home the signing of the season after coming in and slotting in the back line to partner Doria after January. Finally Abel Ruiz took home the Young Player of the Year as he notched up 19 goals as he took on the role as the main striker as Sam Gallagher spent most of the season in the physio room.
    Attachment 1119264Attachment 1119265

    Commercially the club has down well again. Sponsorship rose to just over 26 million euro whilst competition prize money, corporate and hospitality and match day commercial and retail income did drop which is to be expected as we have no European football this season. Broadcast revenue has decreased again but still it did generate 116 million euro for the club to leave us well set. Doria sold the most shirts this season with Jones, Winks, Molumby and Gallagher joining him in the top 5.
    Attachment 1119266

    Finally we have changes to our facilities, due to them good oul technology advances our youth facilities have dropped a level so the board have sanctioned an improvement which should hopefully do our players no harm. We'll end it with us getting some fantastic news as we officially say goodbye to our old home the Ricoh Arena and move into the brand new 45 thousand seater Coventry Stadium.

  5. Preseason - End of transfer window 2024/25

    Moving into a new season we have also moved home, into a brand new 45 thousand seater stadium after moving out of the Ricoh Arena.

    Preseason
    For our preseason tour this year we decided against going to the States for the training camp as we went to Hong Kong this time around. We played a total of 12 games this time around with games in Hong Kong during the camp and then the usual friendlies including a game against North Carolina. We ended with 8 wins, 1 draw and 3 loses as we lost to Man City, AC Milan and Spurs and drawing against Swansea. We ended up scoring 43 goals and conceding only 15 as we had a decent enough preseason.

    League Action
    August
    First game of a brand new season was at home in our brand new stadium against Spurs as we drew 1-1 thanks to a late equaliser from Sam Gallagher. Next up we visited Old Trafford and lost out 3-2 despite goals from Gallagher and new boy Molina. We finished the month up by visiting Newcastle as we got our first win on the board, winning 2-1 with goals from youngster Chris Stewart and Molina. This left us on 4 points after 3 games in 11th place.

    Cup Action
    EFL Cup
    This year again we entered the EFL Cup in the 2nd round and we were drawn against Doncaster at home. We progressed to the 3rd round with a 2-0 victory thanks to a double from Pereiro, drawing Walsall in the 3rd round.

    A Coventry City/Sky Blues Special-coventry-city_-senior-fixtures.pngA Coventry City/Sky Blues Special-coventry-city_-competitions.png

    Transfers
    The summer transfer window was a busy one for the club as we welcomed 5 new players and 18 players left the club under various guises as we made a profit of just under 10 million.
    Outgoings
    We had 8 players leave the club permanently with 7 moving on to new clubs whilst Seamus Coleman decided to call it a day as he retired. Goalkeeper Wildsmith left to join Liverpool for 2 million with Gael Bigirimana and Hachim Mastour also joining him in leaving permanently as they left to join Sampdoria(3.5 million) and Basel(5 million) respectively as the major players to leave as Maher, Casal, Olmo and Diallo left permanently as well.
    Incomings
    As before we had welcomed 5 player join the club with 4 going into the first team squad and 1 going into the u23s. We see a new keeper join in Manuel Roffo and defender Rob Holding as the only outgoing money. We signed Javier Molina on a free after he left Liverpool and Anxo Herrera on a free after he also left PSG. Aaron Jenkins joins the club and goes into the u23s as he signed after being released from Man United.

  6. September - December 2024

    Here we go down to business now that the summer transfer window is over we have to make do with what we have until January unless we pick up another gem on a free like we did with Baba Rahman.

    League Action
    September
    It took us until the middle of September to get another league game due to the first international break of the season as we faced off against Chelsea as we lost 3-0 as we finished the game with 10 men with Molumby seeing red. We followed this up with another 3-0 loss to Burnley as we completely lost the plot as we went 2-0 down within 14 minutes. Things didn't get much better as we finished the month with a 2-0 defeat against Man City as we went 0-3 for the month conceding 8 goals and scoring zilch! This left us in 18th place and we have plenty of ground to make up in the league.

    October
    First up we face Sheffield Wednesday as we try to turn around our form after a disappointing September and we started well with a 3-2 win thanks to goals from Cesinha, Ocampo and a late winner from Gallagher.

We finished the month as we started with a 1-0 win against Stoke thanks to yet another late goal from Ocampo this left us at the end of the month in 12th place as we have turned it around.

    November
    We began the month by welcoming Liverpool as they came away with a 1-0 win after grabbing a late winner through some slack defending on our point. Next up we faced Arsenal and after a better defensively display we came home with 0-0 draw to make up for the previous defeat. After another international break we faced off against Leicester in the M69 derby and lost out 3-2 as we started dreadfully as Rahman saw red and Leicester then went 2-0 up after 25 minutes but some improvement saw us bring it back to 2-2 via goals from Cesinha and Holding but Roffo scored an OG as we lost it late on. We finished the month with a 3-3 draw with Jones grabbing himself a double and Gallagher also chipping in as it left us in 16th place going into the festive period.

  7. January - February 2025

    New year, new Coventry? Naw just plodding along in the league and challenging the establishment in the cups.

    League Action
    January
    We started the new year with a visit to Spurs and we came away with a credible 0-0 draw to set us up well for the semi final encounters late in the month. Next up we faced off against United again drawing 0-0 thanks to a defensive masterclass before beating Newcastle 3-0 with Winks netting a double and Sawyer also getting on the scoresheet. We finished the month with a 3-0 defeat against Chelsea and a 5-1 defeat against City despite us taking the lead as we capitulated in the second half shipping 3 quick fire goals. We remained in 12th place as we did solidify our position as we opened up a 6 point gap over 13th place which is currently occupied by Burnley.

    February

    February began with us welcoming Burnley and we came away with a hard fought 1-1 draw thanks a goal from Winks with Burnley getting a late equaliser. We followed this up with a 3-0 victory over Sheffield Wednesday with Gallagher netting a double and Oliveria also netting himself a goal. We picked up another 3-0 victory this time over Middlesbrough with Gribbin getting a double and Gallagher netting again. We ended the month unbeaten as we picked up a 1-1 draw against Stoke with Stewart netting a late equaliser keeping us in 12th place with us 1 point behind Watford who occupy 11th.

    Cup Action
    EFL Cup
    We go into the semi final knowing a place is up for grabs in the final against either Bournemouth or Swansea but before that we have a 'simple' task of overcoming Spurs. First up we welcomed Spurs and went with a 5-3-2 formation and came away with a 0-0 draw as we controlled most of the game but couldn't finish our chances.
    We lost Molina for the 2nd leg as we drew 1-1 in normal time with Cesinha getting an equaliser early in the 1st half after Sane opening the scoring for Spurs. We went into extra time knowing if we held on we would progress to the final and we did it as I went contain with the 5-3-2 formation in extra time and we progressed to our second EFL Cup final in a row. We will face off against Bournemouth as the progressed after beating Swansea 2-1 on aggregate. During our run to the final we also have set a new record of 12 games unbeaten which is good for the history books.
    A Coventry City/Sky Blues Special-76e538ffa8.png

    FA Cup
    With a 3rd round tie against QPR we finished up with a 0-0 draw as we couldn't unlock their defence as we struggled to create chances. In the replay we performed better with Gallagher opening the scoring before QPR went down to 10 men but they did grab an equaliser to finish 1-1 in normal time, Pereiro pulled us out of a hole as he netted in in extra time as we won 2-1 to set up a 4th round tie with Manchester United. Our FA Cup journey ended in the 4th round as we crashed out with a 2-1 defeat as Stewart got nothing more than an late consolation as the fightback came too late.
    A Coventry City/Sky Blues Special-583e16f2be.pngA Coventry City/Sky Blues Special-583e136877.png

    Winter Transfer Window
    We had an interesting January transfer window as we made big moves to strengthen the team. Carlos Ocampo started window off by wanting to leave so a duly obliged but couldn't get him a permanent move as he left on loan to Salzburg. We brought in two new faces to the club Callum Gribbin from Derby and Rui Oliveira from OM as they provide strength and depth to the starting line up.
    A Coventry City/Sky Blues Special-76e51840a7.pngA Coventry City/Sky Blues Special-76e522cb41.png
    This also meant we smashed two transfer records as Callum Gribbin is now the clubs most expensively purchased player at 11 million euros and we have spent the most this season at 21.5 million euros.

  8. EFL Cup Final 2025

    So here we go our 2nd appearance in a row and people say its a mickey mouse cup, but I suppose it is if your teams not in it you can't win it as we face off against Bournemouth for a place in Europe next season. First up we have both teams journey to final with both teams having a tough tests enroute to the final.
    A Coventry City/Sky Blues Special-80712a71f7.pngA Coventry City/Sky Blues Special-80714668cd.png

    I went with my trusty 4-2-3-1 and entrusting Sam Gallagher to lead the line in place of Christ Stewart who had worked himself back into fixture after a bout of flu. Bournemouth on the other hand went with a 5-3-2 formation employing wingbacks with Danny Ings and Callum Wilson leading the line for them.
    A Coventry City/Sky Blues Special-80710c38d1.png

    Going into the game we knew it was going to be a struggle but if we played well we could win it. The first half itself was a quiet affair as we couldn't quite unlock the Bournemouth defence as we struggled to not only get away shots but also shots on target as we only troubled twice in the first half as Doria and Hamilton both picking up yellow cards for us and Bournemouth also seeing two yellows in a scrappy half. The second half was a different story however as we changed to a more attacking mentality and it couldn't have started better as Winks won a penalty just after the restart but Gallagher couldn't put it away. Things got better as Winks this time got on the ball and fired into the top left had corner to put us in the lead after 66 minutes as we finally made the breakthrough and 7 minutes later Gallagher picked himself up after winning his own penalty and coolly slotted past Soriano to double our lead as he made amends for missing the first. The game petered out as Evans-McCrum picked up a yellow in the 78th minute as we held on for a deserving 2-0 victory with Winks deservedly taking home the MOTM award.

  11. So...

    The only terrible thing about FM has only gone and happened. Laptop crashed this morning and when I rebooted it back up and loaded FM I have discovered all my saves have become corrupt. All my Coventry saves have been affected so eventually here it is after 9 wonderful seasons its the end.



    Actually disappointed as I have finally got the club a stable footing back in the PL and had some potential wonderkids coming through the ranks but alas it is no more.

    I will be starting a brand new save at some point today and again like the Coventry one it will be a side down on its luck.

    Peace out!
