Coventry fan GaryMabbuttsLeftKnee from the Sky Blues Talk website is hopeful about his side’s promotion chances this season.
About the fan…
I’m GaryMabbuttsLeftKnee. I’m 26 years old and go both home and away games. I don’t remember too much from the Premier League days, so it’s been fairly doom and gloom for me. This year has provided a nice spark.
How do you expect your team to do this season?
I’m not in the “we should be getting automatic promotion” camp that there appears to be a few of. I would have taken a top-half finish at the start of the season but seeing how well we’ve progressed I would be disappointed if we didn’t make top six now.
Who should we watch out for?
Any of Lameiras, Maddison, Murphy, Armstrong (Kent can look very dangerous but very rarely delivers at the telling moment).
What are your thoughts on your manager?
I can’t sing his praises enough. He has turned the fortunes of our club around in a small matter of time. His profile has helped us capture loan signings that otherwise we wouldn’t have made and he has also signed the likes of Vincelot and Lameiras permanently who (although being at different stages of their careers) have both been superb
What are your thoughts on your board?
The less said about them the better. Firstly, they have treated fans disgracefully in recent years and secondly it just creates in-fighting and really boring bickering.
How do you expect Vale to do this season?
I guess I don’t have much of a basis to answer this question but from following results and catching highlights on the awful Channel 5 football League show, I would anticipate you to finish bottom half but with no worry of relegation.
A score prediction?
I’m hoping we shake off our (relative) poor form. A nervous 2-1 win with Lameiras and Armstrong to score for us.
