The 72 Show - Episode 2.19 (With Matty Roper)
Anthony Kendrick is joined this week by Coventry fan and blogger Matty Roper.
We get the immediate reaction from Matty with Russell Slade sacked. We discuss whether it was the right decision, and if there is any hope of a replacement coming in and saving the club from what appears to be a nailed-on relegation. On a brighter note, we discuss the upcoming EFL 'Checkatrade' trophy final against Oxford United.
We then move on to discuss the Championship, with the relegation battle our focus. Burton Albion drew 0-0 with Bristol City with Matty giving his views on whether the club can stay up, as well as an insight on Shaun Barker who he recently interviewed. Blackburn have improved under Tony Mowbray with two wins out of three, with Matty discussing his thoughts on the former Coventry boss. The top of the table is also discussed, with Brighton losing 3-0 to Newcastle, is this just a blip or is it the start of a choke?
League One saw Fleetwood continue their impressive run, getting a fourth win in a row by beating Scunthorpe 2-0 to replace them in the automatic promotion places. We review the teams at the top of the table and who will go up. In League two, Leyton Orient got the result of the weekend with a massive 4-0 win over Newport. Can this revive their survival hopes?
Thanks for listening!
