    Who's confident about an upset?

    There is plenty of football being talked on other threads to be fair.

    But a marked improvement in the last week, which is refreshing.

    I can see a draw! Will this be a replay or extra time?

    2-2 then onto pens which we will lose. Aron Gunnarsson will score the winner. Ive become a little bit tired of hearing long term future for the club from Pressley- for him then to sign players on one year deals or short term loans. Therefore if we get a nice sized compensation deal id be happy for us to part ways.

    From BBC Sports site;
    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer:
    The Norwegian is well aware defeat by League One Coventry, for a side who
    were in the Premier League last season, would be viewed as an upset.
    "Coventry are a big club themselves. I played many time against them myself,"
    the former Manchester United striker said.
    "They've been successful in the cup before so we know it's going to be a tough game."

    Nice to know he remembers us! Hope he goes to the right ground (unlike some! :D http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/28765011)

    The 'Soccerbase' take on tonight and on Elvis and Huddersfield.

    More misery on cards for Elvis and Sky Blues fans

    COVENTRY need ‘something a little bit different', according to boss Steven Pressley, if they are to put up a decent challenge this season.

    How about new owners, a new ground, a new playing squad and a new gaffer. That'd fit the bill, wouldn't it?

    Actually they may well be needing a new manager soon. As I'm typing this, Pressley's one of the jollies for the Huddersfield job, based it seems on the fact that Huddersfield nicked the previous Coventry boss and Pressley, presumably, would love to jump ship if the right offer came along.

    Mind you, given that Mark Robins was given one game to turn Huddersfield's season around, I'm not sure anyone would want the Terriers gig. More funny farm than Galpharm.

    Pressley's got the small matter of a League Cup tie with Cardiff to focus on. (Incidentally, if Cardiff were worried that a drop out of the Premier League was going to cost them a fortune in TV cash, they needn't have worried. That's twice in five days they'll have been on the box. Even Clare Balding can't trump that.)

    We know most Sky Blues diehards won't go near Sixfields, but presumably they'll still tune in to watch the tie, and presumably they can still bet on their side as well. Or in this case, bet against them.

    Well, they lost their two best strikers over the course of the last six months and I doubt Elvis's heart is really in it. For ‘something a little bit different' read ‘something very similar to last season'. Could be a long one for Cov.

    Lower Div teams regularly beat teams from higher league teams at this stage of the League Cup so we definitely have a chance. Hopefully Cardiff take longer to adjust to the pre-season type atmosphere than we do.

    Hopefully Mcwank, Swanson and O'Brien have been practicing their special abilities since Saturday. How do you get better at running around at full pace?

    Sky's coverage starts at seven, so they're either going to look at our situation in depth...or show the goals from last night

    We are going to lose so bad with that team. Plenty of goals in that line up....

    Can play centre half and centre mid, we shall see. I'd rather 4-4-2 get back to basics

    Is Maddison on the bench? Would quite like to see what the hype is about.

    It does look like 4-5-1 too, 2 central midfielders, 3 attacking midfielders.
