  1. Maggers..........

    He made a mistake, but bloody hell, I’m glad I ain’t in the trenches with some of you lot! COYR
  2. Your OTIB messages to the lads today....

    Me & Elliott cannot be with you at the Gate tonight due to illness. I feel robbed of watching you against what some might call the best team in Europe. The pride I have of my club in so many ways on & off the pitch currently is immense. Wear your shirts with pride, be brave on the ball & play your game. No matter what, stick together & enjoy it. I have no doubts you will make us proud. ALWAYS BELIEVE! COYR
  3. Luke Steele

    Good read. Clicked on the Leroy Lita piece as well. Didn’t realise he went off to Thailand. COYR
  4. Paul Lambert new Stoke manager

    Personally think he will do an ok job, just to add. COYR
  5. Paul Lambert new Stoke manager

    That is brilliant, made me chuckle. Maybe life ain’t so bad! COYR
  6. 3-5-2

    It is actually my preferred formation. The only problem as you alluded to is the right wing back position. The wingbacks position IMO is almost the most important position in this formation. You have to be a very good player on top of being super fit. We have one side covered, would need to find the other! Saw a very good wing back display from their right wing back yesterday, very impressed. It’s definitely an option though. COYR
  7. Parking Tickets for Pavement Parkers

    I’m amazed this hasn’t happened before ref parking on the grass verges etc. Some people do seem to park literally anywhere. COYR
  8. Liam Walsh

    Certainly a better second half than first half. My first thought was he needed to get his head up quicker or be more aware of his teammates position. Although you have to accept he hasn’t been here long & you would hope that comes with time. What I would say is that IMO, LJ made a mistake starting him, only in the sense that Paterson was then effectively left midfield, having to keep an eye on their right wing back ( good player). Paterson IMO is our most creative player & needs to be 10/15 yards further forward, a lot closer to Bobby who was isolated. But with regards Walsh, I would say not a bad start, with real potential to get better. COYR
  9. Gazza's kind heart.

    Another one Mcoist tells of Gazza, is when they use to stay in a hotel, the night before the game. Mcoist was sharing a room with another player ( can’t remember his name), when he woke at about 4 or 5am, to look at the other player looking a bit lost staring at him. To then look up & find Gazza sat on the end of his bed playing a console I think it was. To then say “ Gazza what you doing? It’s 5 in the morning!”. Then Gazza replies something along the lines of “ I was lonely & needed some company!”. He had gone to the hotel reception & asked for Mcoist’s key! Mcoist instructed every other hotel after that to not give Gazza a key. COYR
  10. Surprisinly

    Would depend on the criteria for a ‘ long ball’ I would say. Is it a ball hit over 30 yards or a 60 yard lump? COYR
  11. Gazza's kind heart.

    Brilliant. Cheers for that. COYR
  12. Gazza's kind heart.

    Saw some old clips of him recently, WHAT A PLAYER he was. Heard a story from Ally Mcoist recently, about Gazza playing against Celtic & getting a bollocking from Walter Smith at half time at Parkhead. To only then disappear & make his way up to the directors lounge to have half a pint. To then come out & put on a MOM performance! COYR
  13. Favourite chants over the years?

    “We’ve got our CITY back, we’ve got our CITY back” fairly sure this was sung during possibly the Millen days? Seems quite poignant at the moment! COYR
  14. John Stones 50 Million Aden Flint ?

    Agree with most of your comments RedDave, but reference the second goal, personally put it partially down to Wright not tucking in. A few seconds before the goal you can see Flint telling him to tuck in, which he doesn’t. Slightly off topic mind! COYR
  15. Transformation of our club

    Absolutely spot on. Have said it before, he started a lot of what we see today. Was it him that use to talk about performance before result? Knowing that long term wise, the performance would bring results. Noticed Louis Carey saying the same thing last night. I’ve also heard a lot of Prem managers saying the same thing recently. Good manager/coach, just not so good for sound bites! COYR
