Adams tries to stay positive

Coventry City manager Micky Adams admitted his side were undergoing a crisis of confidence after their 4-2 defeat at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday, a result that could have been worse after the visitors raced into a 4-0 lead.

He said: 'We were undone today by individual errors which you can never legislate for and to be fair we never gave up and kept going.

'We are suffering in confidence but we kept going which we owe to the fans and ourselves and if there are any positives we can take from the game it is that we won the second half.'

Change to most recent first
the rest of the team isn't in too bad a shape...Bristol and Palace were given goals by one man: Virgo. His inability as a footballer is no longer funny.

I agree with Micky about confidence beening low, but I would have liked him to come out and take the blame for this one. As he said it was individual errors that gave the goals away, the biggest individual error was his for not making the change he did at half time when we went 0-2 down it was there for all to see that Virgo was not the man for the centre of defence or the individual error of playing him at all, Come on Micky if you get it wrong put your hands up

slightly puzzled he did not start with Ben Turner who by all accounts played well at Bristol but big doubts on Virgo and Steele. One positive from yesterday was the spirit and who knows what would have happened if the third had gone in. Let's get behind the team on Tuesday.

'Undone by individual errors' looks like you have been undone a lot lately 1 point from the last 18.

Just checked the FA Rules - It appears that you don't get any points for winning the second half!! Make or break on Tuesday - we need to stop the rot now!
