Remember so many classic games against Bedford at Coundon Road, always a hard game fought with spirit.
The fixture has taken on an even more significant meaning with the number of the Butts lads having a link with the club. Looking forward to an exciting pre Christmas spectacular to warm the cockles of your heart.

Very interesting point Mark. 100 games is quite a milestone. I wonder how many of the staff at BPA are aware. Bedfordís game at Ealing on Saturday was very much one way traffic, and clearly the Blues supporters are starting to become a little uneasy. In addition to which, Bedfordís Championship season is not anything like as good as usual. Their very lowly position in the table gives evidence to this. So Saturday could be very interesting. Unfortunately I canít go, but I have abiding memories of our game there last season and hope that we can go just that little bit better this time.

Yes, I think Mark and the site have stolen a march over the club and the Bellylaff with this one winking smiley (I haven't counted the games personally, though, but I expect MF is confident).
Not that it matters; it's just nice that people are made aware. Let's hope RW can celebrate this milestone in style.

I thought it was an unwritten golden rule that a journalist never revealed his sources!?

RW is the man who went to Jon Sharp with a plan and Jon's backing has been vital. But Winters vision and ability to deliver has been impressive. Nobody gets all the recruitment right and sometimes there has to be stop gaps. Last year we carried a few in contract because we achieved promotion a year earlier than expected.

If someone really hasnt been upto it they have been moved on quickly. Winter is supportive of players and tries to develop them off the pitch as well as on it.

He is open with the fans and the forums have been excellent. His delivery is eloquent, at times humorous but he is quick to tell fans when he thinks their opinion is wrong. He certainly can have a ruthless streak.

Those 100 games have gone quickly. I have tickets for Saturday and hope Coventry can reward Rowland and his family with the win he deserves against Bedford.

Ha ha. Without on the record sources, 90 plus per cent of stories would never be written.

Or wouldn't back in the day. Nowadays, a rumour on social media counts as a source smiling smiley

But RW is a stat man, too...more of which to come.
