Coventry V Luton; official play off final match thread

Recommended Posts

I agree with Cambridge that this play off final feels different in that Luton were harshly treated (in my opinion) by the FA and have managed to come back from non league football to the verge of playing in the Premier league. Coventry have also managed to come back from League Two. It was only five years ago that these two teams were playing each other in League Two. Both teams have spent very little in relative terms on their squads/wages. So in summary whoever goes up it will be one hell of a fairytale come true........

Why is it historic Cambridge? Don't we have a play off final "every" season 🤣

Well, neither side have played in the Prem and both were down in the lower divisons a decade ago.

I think its great that one of these two "smaller" teams will be in the Premiership next season, rather than one of the usual suspects!

This is the same Luton that played on a plastic pitch and banned away fans.

And your point is?. QPR played on a plastic pitch, you could argue they were pioneers. Aren't a lot of pitches now a mixture of grass and plastic these days, I know the pitch at Carrow Rd is. Didn't Luton ban away fans after Millwall caused a lot of trouble at Kenilworth Rd?.............

totally agree especially for their fans who have been through hell these past years. Difficult to forecast who will win but good luck to both. clubs and fans. This is what is all about.

I was at Coventry v Norwich at Highfeild Rd in 1992.  Crook and Ndlovu scored in 1-1 draw.

Webber is right though, how can we hope to compete with a team with the resources available to Luton!

To be fair and I say this as no fan of Webber like 95% of our fanbase wouldn't tolerate us playing like Luton do so it's an unfair comparison. Coventry is a fair comparison but they only snuck into the play offs after a late run, they weren't amazing this year by any stretch.

Seeing these two very poor sides competing for a place in the Premiership makes it quite frightening to realise how much we have declined  this season. Most of our sides over recent years would have thrashed either of them. Compared with us both sides neither have the money or support to compete with us. Where has it all gone wrong ????

I have no idea what style of football we played this season!

The worst two teams to ever reach a play off final. I genuinely think that... they were both absolutely dire but it's nice to see a small team get up, so fair play to Luton.

Are you dreaming Luton have been amazing the last two seasons as for Norwich I tell you now Ipswich will finish above Norwich!! and so well Coventry Norwich are dreadful they have no team just a bunch of players that can’t fight and need mummy to hold their hands I have followed Norwich as a second team since my mighty Luton town got relegated 31 years ago. And the last two seasons I can’t even watch Norwich play anymore they are so dreadful so please don’t put the mighty Luton town down we are a team and have more fight and heart and will give it a better go at staying in the premier league than Norwich have the last two times they went up. Norwich play with no balls and no fight and no heart… this Norwich  team is dreadful they is not one Norwich player that I would want to play for Luton  not one. And I follow both clubs. And I would never think I would say that at the start of last season when Norwich went up to the premier league
