Vital Coventry reader comment

Vital Coventry reader 'ccfcks' contacted us with his views on a certain referee's performance at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday.

He said: 'On Saturday Coventry City won 4-1, the only person in the ground who didn't think that was Graham (I'm in the limelight) Poll.

'The fact is 2 points, which was the difference here could be the difference between staying up or making the play-off, today it means we are 16th not 14th.

'The FA will not act on comments on referees even though there is a option on their web site to do so, but I think it is time as football fans we changed this.

'Just a few things that I saw which he got up to and I have tried but cannot work out.

'Booking McKenzie for going for a 50/50 ball with the keeper, he had to go for the ball.

'Booked Tabb for a pull on the keeper, but only talked to the keeper for swinging an arm at Tabb.

'Give a non-penalty I still don't know what it was for.

'Gave us a couple of free kicks in the first half for Cardiff players diving but did not book them.

'Two goals disallowed I don't know why.

'The thing is being a Coventry fan you can take losing or drawing but when a team play like we did and it is taken away by a nutter in the middle it felt more like a loss.'

Graham Poll loves to make the wrong decisions, I bet he lays in bed at night thinking he is the talk of the town after every game. He made such a grunt of him-self during the world cup I am amazed he is still employed. The man is a complete tool.

Sky Blues versus Blades

The curtain comes down on football at the Ricoh Arena for this season when Coventry City entertain Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon, the Sky Blues campaign now over but the Blades maintaining an outside chance of making the play-off places.

Last Saturday's defeat at Doncaster Rovers officially ended City`s own hopes but they will make it a hat-trick of home victories if they can take three points from Nigel Adkins side.
