    Big win for Coventry.

    Bristol City certainly got that on the beach. feel.

    Sheffield Wednesday need a win soon.

    I'll pop my head back up now we've had a win. I stay off the forums after a loss, mainly because of our own forum. Its so unbelievably negative on there a lot of the time.

    We had a massive panic today, Godden went down injured but looks OK. I'm still in the belief that him & Walker will determine if we stay in the league.

    We have been poor recently but that's why we're in a relegation battle, it was always going to be like this.

    A great weekend for Cov! Feeling good after a win but there is a long long way to go.

    I'll take back my prediction that Rotherham will climb above Coventry to survive.

    You don't lose matches like that at this stage of the season if you're Rotherham and survive. 5 games in 11 days will be tough on the squad as well.

    Fair play for Wycombe for fighting until the end, 8 points adrift with 18 points to play for though is a tough ask.

    Great win for us today - think that’s probably is safe now in conjunction with Rotherham’s bad weekend.

    Huge win for Cov - think they’ll edge to safety with a kind run in.

    looking tough for Rotherham now sadly.

    All I can say is we are "lucky" that Sheffield Weds have that points deficit and Rotherham are suffering due to a fixture pile up. We'd be bang in trouble otherwise. *If* Rotherham do win those games in hand we are in bother. We are sinking fast! 1 win in 14 and still to play Derby, Huddersfield, Birmingham, Sheffield Weds and Rotherham themselves, all below us, plus Cardiff.

    It really does look like the current bottom three then despite Wednesday and Wycombe's show of fight as no one seems bad enough from 21st to 18th to lose every game, Id say teams from Blackburn upwards have enough points in the bag

    Well done today, we were a shambles but take nothing away from your performance. Why the hell did we let Paterson go? He always showed passion and he was great today. Play like that every week and you'll survive, good luck.

    Don't try and include yourself in our special group :laugh:

    You're safe as houses. I think if we can win a couple we'll be safe which will put us on 48 (same as you lot now).

    Out of interest, what do you think is the consensus on Mowbray?

    What a brilliant result after Fridays debacle. We have a hard game Vs Bournemouth on Saturday but have to play Rotherham a week Thursday. Beat them and I think we're safe.

    I thought Coventry were going to take the last spot but I've changed my mind to the current bottom 3 going down now. Wycombe and Wednesday have too much to do I think, and I think Rotherham's fixture pile up is going to do for them.

    I'll be happy for Coventry if they stay up. They've been through such shit over the last 15 years and it would be nice for their fans if their return to Coventry could be at Championship level. Hopefully with fans allowed in the stadium.

    We're on 46 points so would like 1 more win. Though I do think it'll likely be the current bottom 3 that go down for the reasons I stated.

    I think the tide has turned on Mowbray tbh. It's a genuine shame as we were totally and utterly disfunctional when he came in with no backroom structure and a split fan base on it's way down to L1. From there he picked up the pieces and put some pride back into the club and is seemingly trusted by our owners (or advisers). However there is always the worry that we would appoint an awful manager next time as the record under these owners is pretty poor on that score.

    Do you see any parallels from his time at Coventry?

    You'll stay up.

    Might just have come at perfect time! Nothing fluky about it either. Amazing what beating Brazil can do?:laugh:
