Firstly. thank you for taking the time to visit the site and I hope you enjoy what is on offer. My name is Matty Roper and I hold an unconditional affiliation to Coventry City, one that sometimes seems irrational, but always feels right. There is just something about this club – despite all the pain it puts us through – that pulls you in. Now, it is impossible for that bond to be broken.

Having followed the Sky Blues up and down the country over the last few seasons, I thought it would be a good idea to combine my passion for football with my love of writing – mattyroper.wordpress.com was born.

I reached the finals of the Football Blogging Awards in 2015 and 2016 thanks to the support of those who read my work, but university life and work got in the way, resulting in me hanging up my boots.

But, now halfway through my Sports Journalism degree and with my love of City just as strong, I am back. This site will be made up of my musings on the Sky Blues, exclusive interviews and a look at what some of our former players are up to today. Oh, and I will throw in a side order of poetry too because, well, why not?

Play Up Sky Blues.
