90 minutes in and it is cutting up quite badly where close action takes place but looks fast running.

Bit of a worry. There is literally no time for mitigating action.

No and another hour on it is looking very patchy in places too.

Must admit it’s whetting my appetite for the new season though. Looks a good crowd there as well.

Not the England performance, surely?! :(

No, wasn’t great was it. Although some of those Samoans were brutal.

Has Coventry been particularly wet in recent weeks?

Absolutely not. Last week was particularly hot - this week has been more reasonable with the odd welcome shower.

Interesting that we applied for tickets for todays matches in the ballot, and were not successful, but watching on the TV there were plenty of empty seats.

Anyway off to Brum tomorrow to watch the Gymnastics.

Get ready for complaints from CCFC  about the playing surface. It will unfortunately be warranted. Their first home match is next weekend and from above sections look to have little grass left.

It's been  played on virtually non-stop tho', hasn't it?  True, it is a trifle bald in places.

When you consider what soccer and rugby grounds in the 80s were like, there is nothing to complain about today on even the worst of grounds.
