So Coventry City are top of the league ! Ok there's only 3 games gone and there's a hell of a lot of football still to play but let's face it we've endured plenty of miserable times in the last few years so I think we can allow ourselves to enjoy these early heady days.
We at the Sky Blue Trust just like all other city fans couldn't be more delighted at what we've seen so far from Tony Mowbray's men. Not only have we won 3 potentially very difficult games but we've done it with a style and swagger that we haven't seen from a Sky Blues side for many a long day.
Who would have thought when the fixtures were published in June that we would not only beat comfortably but outplay 2 sides who were playing in a higher division last season. Who would have imagined that neither Wigan or Millwall would have been able to cope with our pace and attacking movement. Who would have dared hope that we could finally lay our Crewe Alexander bogey to go top of the table with the best start to the season for 23 years.
So far Tony Mowbray's signings have looked inspired. The quality touch of Lameiras, the organisation and leadership of Ricketts, the strength and power of Vincelot and the undoubted class that Armstrong brings to the party have given us a fantastically exciting start. Add to that the undoubted qualities of Fleck, Johnson, O'Brien and Maddison and it's easy to see why many city fans are beginning to believe again.
Nobody should get carried away. The good run won't continue forever and there will undoubtedly be difficult times ahead but for now we salute Tony Mowbray and every single player who has worn the Sky Blue shirt this season.
Thank you for making us smile again !
