Three post-Coventry texts
The Coventry result was a real disappointment and no doubt raised a few debates between football purists and pragmatists. I received three post-match texts (not all from Rams fans) all on a familiar theme:
“Well based on that, you wouldn’t want to be a Cov fan and watch that shit”
“Hated that. Also hated Dion Dublin bigging up Boothroyd’s percentage football. Pair of… [you can guess]”
“Cov looked typical Boothroyd side i.e. awful”
Despite the result, our domination of possession did get us somewhere with more shots on target than Cov, including Moxey’s three clear-cut second half chances (I wouldn’t blame him at all for the two he missed. I suppose the right-foot volley actually comes in the “off target” column). I’m more than happy with the new footballing philosophy, the problem is we just keep giving goals away!
