Anyone remember when coventry lost to Everton

Recommended Posts

Ironic to think that Coventry could yet again have a big say in our destiny ,like they did when they surrended to  Everton 4-0 to send us down on the last game of the season.

Yep, too right. It was so late in the season, or maybe even after the official end of the season, Everton had had their end of season party the night before. The story going the rounds at the time was that some of their players hadn''t even been to bed, or at least not to their own bed!

The year Coventry were allowed to play 3 matches after the season had finished with the final game being againt the Champions Everton , they needed 9 points and duly got them . Unforgettable really.

Still bitter about that. Still hate Coventry (although not really their fault).

Even now, Cov turned us over but rolled over to forest and will probabaly let Barnsley beat them too.

I still hate both of them. Coventry for being a sh*thole and sending us down in ''85 and Everton for everything else, though especially for beating us in the FA cup semi.

[quote user="Loan City Fc "]Actually it was probably 2 points for a win all those years ago , so make that 6 they needed.
[/quote]

 

The points were changed in 1981 - otherwise we would not have got promotion at Sheff Wed , 3 points for a win took us up , 2 points kept us down

Either Way Cov are an almighty pain and as such will lose tomorrow night , McCarthy is a Barnsley boy , player and fan so don''t expect Wolves to be all guns blazing on Saturday either
