'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Backhanded Compliment

Would it be right to say that Steven Pressley's comments are a "backhanded compliment" to Bradford?

Sunday saw Coventry involved in yet another goal filled game, and again in front of the sky sports cameras, when they came to play is at Valley Parade.

We fought back from two-nil down to two-two and then an injury-time penalty from Nahki Wells completed his hat-trick and a 3-3 draw for us.

Their boss has credited us for fighting back into the game, and securing that late draw, but has also branded our football "from the bark ages".

Pressley said: 'I thought we had dealt with everything that Bradford threw at us. I was delighted with the effort and a lot of aspects of our play. I am just disappointed we didn't get the result our performance merited.

'Credit to Bradford for pressurising us late in the game, but it was never going to be easy for us playing against long ball football. That is football from the dark ages, but we have got to learn to cope with it.'

That would be a backhanded compliment wouldn't it?

If football from the dark ages is enough to get us out of league two and into league one, challenging for promotion to the championship, then I think I can live with that and the football in the dark ages can't have been bad!
