Doing it the right way

With Swansea City clinching the third promotion place to the Premier League it is interesting that QPR, Norwich City and the Swans, three teams who played good football throughout 2010/11, have gone up. Using wide players, playing from the back, being patient, passing and moving and generally being comfortable on the ball and trusting players augur well for Coventry City next season.

That is due to the remarkable turnaround in the club`s playing fortunes in the last ten games of the season 2010/2011 sparked by a complete change of playing ethos introduced by Andy Thorn at Burnley on a cold, damp March Tuesday night when we all wondered just where the Sky Blues were heading. League One looked the most likely, the majority of fans thought, as the season fell apart and the club appeared to be on the verge of imploding.

Thorn, while looking at different ways of playing as a Plan B for next season, is confident that City can impose their style of play on the opposition rather than the other way around.

"We had ten games in the end and we didn`t change the system," he has said.

"Everyone knew how we played but we started to get better and better at it and it is a case of other teams changing their system to come and stop us."

The result at Wembley proves that you can play attractive football and succeed so here is hoping that Wembley in May 2012 will see the Sky Blues be just as successful if they haven't been promoted before then.
