I see that Moseley have announced that they have signed Langley and Lewis on loan. Most surprised at Langley I think as he has been with Canbridge this season (I think).

Yes he has. I think it is a great opportunity for Dan to kick on with some gametime and get experience.

disappointed dan has been loaned out. imo with stokes gone he should have been given a run a full back. with trimble & purdy on the wings & big dave on the bench.
maybe he will impress at mose and push even harder for starting place.

If Dan Lewis plays for Moseley as he has played in his limited time in a Cov shirt, he should play every match he is available for. Better for Cov in the long run.

Don't forget Forsyth?

Got to find room for Andy and Junior, when he's fit, in the back three as well. Who'd be a coach or selector? Tough job.

Well that was short and relatively sweet, but hardly surprising... Can we get Dan Lewis back please, we need players who see a future at Cov.

On the Coventry site these is no suggestion that it is a loan.

Speaking to friends who were at the Amp game HP got turned over 3 times, TK/PW threw 6/7 ‘bounce/miss’ passes and RB was the only hard hitting back 5 fwd. Given RWs commentary about building towards being ‘’premiership ready” isn’t now the time for Lewis, Flinn, Russell and Jeannot to be getting meaningful game experience at Champ level rather than Nat 1?

These lads are 22-24 now, unless there is going to be a massive cash budget increase to buy in Prem players surely we need to grow core players? Saints, Wasps, Chiefs, Sarries, Sale, Bath Quins all have players younger than these playing routinely.

As promotion and relegation are highly unlikely when will these players get the chance to develop if not now?

'HP got turned over 3 times'

To be fair to HP, the tackle area didn't go well for anyone at Ampthill...

Rob

I think that was the most contentious area of the game Rob. In my opinion Rob, Cov seemed to be ‘pinged’ far more on this issue than the home side were and remarkably quickly at that. Have had Sir before, notably at Ealing last season, and once again seemed to suffer . Would like to see the penalty count on this one area alone. Still, move on and hope for a reaction on Saturday.

Agreed Paul, Mr Richards had a certain interpretation of the breakdown that Cov couldn't seem to understand.
My dad would have described him as a 'homer', given the amount of times he helped Ampthill out of a corner. However, if all his decisions were correct then we have serious breakdown issues to correct before this Saturday...

Seroius breakdown issues? - At Ealing we certainly did!

I think it is an issue we had in National One. Its been a bumpy ride since then....but for me still our biggest weakness.

Still amazed by Cov supporters' continuing gloom about how awful things have gone since arriving in the Championship two Septembers back. Just how bumpy has the ride been, really? 9 wins and a draw last season, resulting in 8th place and 51pts - the best-ever performance by a promoted side in the decade since the Championship was formed; and this season the win ratio up to 50% in 8 games, plus a draw, and 5th place, with a general acceptance that Cov are part of the 'chasing pack' behind Newcastle at the top end of the table. And yet many people on here seem to view the glass as half-empty...

Once would do Tom!
TBF, though, you're spot on. This season's win-rate is also garnered from five aways out of eight too, which is pretty decent going.
It's a Cov thing though. Wouldn't be happy if we weren't miserable winking smiley

Edit: Have deleted the 'triplication' now Tom smiling smiley
