Coventry Football Club

Coventry vs Port Vale – 26th December 2016

Score: 1 – 0 to Coventry

This football was my very first football that I have ever been too and I must admit that it was very interesting. The game was at Ricoh Arena and my friend got me a free ticket. The whole atmosphere was amazing everyone was chanting and I did not feel out of place although I do not really understand the game or the rules.

In the first 6 minutes, apparently Port Vale should have been in the lead but the goalie cleared the shot out on the corner shot. However the game more interesting and Coventry had possession of the ball a lot, but when Port Vale got the ball they did try and score but unfortunately kept on missing.

The best part of the game was when Coventry scored, the whole crowd that supported Coventry stood up screaming and chanting with happiness. This made me feel very happy as these people are very keen on the game and all share the same interest which brings them together whilst watching the game which allows them to become apart of Maslow’s theory of escapism as all the people who where at the game came to escape from the reality of their lives.

Throughout the game Coventry had 9 times to score and scored once, whereas Port Vale had 6 times to score and never scored. This shows how intense the game was to keen supporters as they were always on there toes hoping that Coventry would score more goals, so the hype of watching them become closer to the goal but not scoring made the crowd again come more closer together as one.
However the amount of times Coventry had to score was the amount of fouls Coventry had, whenever the ref would call a foal the crowd was scream and yell and get rowdy.

Safe to say I have a very enjoyable time watching the football with an easy way in and way out.

The result for the group coursework I felt was very good. I was pleased to work with my group as we now are very close friends, however, working with them sometimes was very difficult due to the boys taking over and wanting to write the task’s themselves. On the first task we all did our own work and then stuck it all together. Then the tasks after that only one person did. I was allowed to do task 4, which I was very pleased with the outcome as when we went to a feedback session before we handed it in, there was barely any mistakes all I got was improvement or what to add in. With us focusing on one task instead of working together allowed us to all give opinions to the task and for the person to then write it up allowing us to improve on our writing skills. The mark we received we were all really pleased with.

In the individual essay, the mark I received I was a little disappointed as I felt I performed a very good essay with further research and further examples of theories, however, I got told it needs to pursue a more discursive approach. Then they go on saying it does do that but it needs to problematize the topic. The feedback I received did confuse me as it said one thing then said I did actually do it but needed to add something else then it goes on to say I did try and do that. To me the feedback was great to see what I need to include for that essay if I ever write it again, however it did not give me feedback on what to include in further essays to get the grades I want.

Within my feedback for this module i was mainly ticked in the 50-59% boxes for the assessment on the intended learning outcomes which I feel was appropriate however I do feel that in the last point, ‘Apply the key concepts through a critical analysis of their own media, cultural or communication objects’ for me to get marked in 50-59% was not correct as I was the only one to really understand they key concepts and how to include them into our documentary and book itself. Within our documentary my group gave specific people jobs to do whilst working to build it up to become a moving image which made some of the people in the group not really do anything, as I felt happened to me so I could not perform at my best.

Within the book feedback I did feel that what was said was correct, we as a group didn’t spend any time together building the book to make it look like a book itself but instead made me the person to build the book on my own, hence why it seemed very poor and low quality as nobody gave me feedback on what they thought I should add or take-away so I just had my own opinion and I thought it turned out alright. With my own chapter of the book, I felt it gave some links to different types of new technologies showing my further reading but I do agree that it didn’t include a lot of theory and that it was mainly describing new technologies.

On the final day before we handed in the work, we did as a group read over everyone’s chapter to check for spelling errors so when there were spelling mistakes it would have been because we misread or did not notice it.
