Exactly this. We didn't play to our attacking strengths.

The positive is we got to a final on foreign soil so we can take heart from that. We scored late goals that got us this far but this time we conceded late that's the way it goes.

Seems to be our default mechanism. Score then fall back just like in the 2021 final. In all honesty Spain deserve to win they have controlled the match and been the best team in the tournament winning all 7 games.

Not only are the fans subdued for lunchtime kick offs but very often the team is too. Everyone seems to be still half asleep in a flat atmosphere. It wasn’t that long ago when we last played Millwall at lunchtime and put in an appalling display in a 2-0 loss on Boxing Day. Hope we don’t play like that in the 1230 games coming up.

Alas Dusseldorf made fools of themselves losing that. They looked and played like Doncaster Rovers...

The only thing I knew about Dusseldorf in the 80's was Susanne Freytag in one of my all time favourite bands Propaganda from that city. Don't know much about the footie team or their history but like the comparison with QPR.

Exactly this. I am sick of seeing and hearing about it to the point I feel the same now about City as United, Liverpool and Chelsea in equal measure. Four titles in a row for City which I saw coming back in 2012. We may never win at the Etihad now looking at the gulf between us and them so there was our chance to be lauded for decades as the team that stopped City. Instead it will be decades of Aguerro rammed down our throats.

The Coventry Conference – Report
at 14:14 6 May 2024

The write ups in the first half of the season were the only good thing about following this team as they were a damn sight more entertaining than what was happening on the pitch. Thankfully the second half of the season really picked up so we had results as good as the match reports.

I echo all the comments made in this final report and the way we treated this final game in a professional manner. Too often we have switched off at the end of the season and suffered heavy defeats like 5-2 to Spurs, 7-1 to Sheffield Wednesday, 4-0 at Norwich, 5-1 at Leicester etc etc. The curse of nothing to play for which we have seen with Sunderland for many weeks now and in Cardiff's final two games losing 4-1 at home and 5-2 away. Thankfully we have a manager at last who had us up for a final game with nothing riding on it.

Clive and Marti really do deserve to enjoy the summer but I suspect our manager has a lot of work to do in that time.

Very pleased to win today in view of how they rolled us over the last two times we met at Loftus Road. 8 away wins is a good return from us and a big reason why we stayed up.

Pretty much agree with Kevin Gallen about what is needed for next season but I have to say I welcomed the bigger and stronger players used by Marti since January making us more competitive. Types like Kakay and Dozzeĺl were too lightweight for this division and needed replacing so the manager quickly identified the weak links in the side.

A double celebration for me with the Spiders beating the Onions tonight so Queens Park will also stay in their Championship. Why was I ever worried about QPR and QP getting relegated?

The constant home defeats and inability to score convinced me we were going down. It wasn't until January that I thought we had any chance. It seemed like a failure to score second half goals in front of the Loft was never ending and no point staying after half time. Delighted we survived but mindful we need to get goals onto this team next season otherwise more misery will ensue.

My route was to not even watch and explore the Valleys like I did the Leicester game. Perhaps it would be better if I gave up watching us and stayed in Wales...

I didn't for sure so much for thinking parking the bus and grinding out a narrow win was the only way to win.

I was in the Valleys when we won at Leicester and didn't think we would better that. So here I am in the Valleys again and we did better it. Perhaps I should just stay here if we are going to get results like this!

I suspect it would be better to park the bus as their pace on the counter will catch us out. Just scoring twice is a mountain for us so we have to try and grind out a 1-0 win or draw.

Leeds don't look great in defence but we don't have the strike force to capitalise on any errors they may make. We will need to defend really well to stay in it as clearly their attack is far superior to ours.

I suppose an all Manchester final for the global market is a money spinner unlike City v Coventry. Naturally a toenail is offside for Coventry but had that been United the goal would have stood. Sick to death of the borderline offside rule as if a toenail gives you an advantage. Having said that I did think the handball for the Cov penalty was harsh and the handball rule is equally as unfair as the offside rule. The game is being ruined by the laws and VAR.

Fed up of the same teams getting to cup finals. Same in Scotland with Celtic winning 6-5 on penalties after a 3-3 with Aberdeen. Two excellent crosses from Hoilett for Aberdeen to twice come from behind but alas the underdogs north and south of the border didn't get the wins they deserved.
