I am truly in awe of many of our supporters who, in 40 minutes of football, have already passed judgment on the Head Coach and the players.  Goodness knows what they would be saying were we losing instead of winning.

Give the guys a break

I really want us, the coach and the players to do well but you can't blame people on here for judging this first half we've been very very bad. A team from last years League One have knocked it around us like we don't exist.

The level of quality in our defence is a huge worry. The likes of Vyner, Moore and Rowe would only get into the likes of Luton, Barnsley, Wycombe and Rotherham. 

Hunt is a bottom half championship player. 

Needs addressing in the transfer window. 

Sessegnon, Kalas, Mawson and Dasilva should be regulars. We need more quality in depth.

5-3-2 didn’t work in the championship for cotterill and won’t for DH need a lot more robust midfielders to make it work 

It works well for many teams, comparing it to Cotterill's team is pointless - the personnel are different.

No team stays rigid in formation, it's all down to the coaching and game plan.

After seeing the line up, how anyone would think that the performance would be any different than that which we have seen in the first half is beyond me. Midfield non existent and two very defensive ‘wing backs’........

Agree, knowing this many players wouldn’t feature he should’ve changed formation to suit the changes

Most disappointing thing from that first half is the lack of a discernible identity. Still feels like LJ randomball, with players just looking like they’re making it up as they’re going along, too many random hoofs upfield. 
 

Where is the fresh new attacking approach with players really knowing their roles? 
 

credit to Coventry though, look a good side.

Well that's pre-season optimism drained in 45 minutes.

Look, it's the first half of the first game of the season I know. But early signs are not good, that's putting it politely. Could easily be losing at half time. 

We looked like the newly promoted away team.

Coventry, better all over the park, in possession, out of possession. We had 40% possession. 

We're constantly resorting to long balls already and our 'unforced errors' and misplaced passes must be well into double figures. Front men too isolated.

Only positive - Kalas and some Bentley saves.
