  1. Time for some straight talk...!

    Have said on a previous thread this week, hard to underestimate the mental exertion the 3 big cup games have had. After yesterday I think it's pretty unlikely we'll make the play-offs. Being brutally honest I think we're going to lose our next 3 games and that will be that. Which will be hard to take after things up until Jan, but I'm more hopeful than ever that the club is in the rudest health it's been in my lifetime.
  2. Time for some straight talk...!

    @Michael McIndoe, interesting observations. Thanks. Without wanting to sound like a kiss arse, I hope us City fans realise how much of a coup/privilege it is having one of our former players now posting regularly on here. Testament to the quality and diversity of threads of here.
  3. Press Conference v Sunderland

    I wasn't even close.
  4. Press Conference v Sunderland

    "I've been pleased with the response from the lads this week. It's been good to get away for a few days. We've put Bolton behind us and are chomping at the bit to get going again. This is the final third of our season and we need to be at our best from here till the end. They're a hungry bunch, they know things have been under par since the turn of the year, but I have a lot of faith in this group and am confident they'll turn it around."
  5. If we are still in the top 6 at the end of February.

    Bearing in mind the injuries, we'd actually overachieved until January. Considering we've had Bobby Reid leading the attack on his own. The revelation has been how well Wright has adapted as a full back. We need Paterson to find form again. Gone off the boil in recent games. One big factor to bear in mind is the mental exertion that the 3 huge cup games have had. Never mind the physical aspect of those games, the levels of concentration, the excitement, the adrenaline, ahead during and after would have been massive. We're not the only ones who get excited about these big games. We just need to get minds focused on the task ahead. I think we will sneak into the play offs but it's going to be very tight. The important thing is that we finish the season strongly. A good unbeaten 6-8 game finish puts us in a good position for the dreaded play offs.
  6. Cardiff... Bubble or not to bubble.....

    This has got to be pretty unprecedented, surely? 50% cut in our allocation. I know when Man U have had their away allocations reduced due to trouble, they've not lost out by this amount.
  7. Team for Bolton ?

    Johnson will stick with Korey at RB. And Mags won't start. It'll be the same XI that started on Sat with Brownhill possibly coming in for Paterson. Latter being rested.
  8. Promised land

    We should all be getting behind teams like Swansea and Bournemouth and Huddersfield and Brighton and Burnley. If they can all do it and survive (for now), we can.
  9. Promised land

    And Wolves. Six London clubs: Watford (not actually in London but who cares), Palace, Chelsea, Arsenal, West Ham and Spurs. Bournemouth and Southampton aren't that easy to get to. West Brom is easy. You're probably right. It might be slightly fewer miles if we go up, but not by much. We need Newcastle and Huddersfield to go down and Swansea and West Brom to survive.
  10. Promised land

    Closer away matches. We're so bloomin' far away from most cities/towns in the Championship.
  11. What might this mean for our existing strikers?

    If Taylor was loaned to a League 1 club (which I just can’t see), what a statement that would be about his ability. You don’t sign someone from the division below only to loan them back there one year later. I think Taylor will be gone permanently in the summer. Works hard, decent movement, but too much of the headless chicken about him. And his finishing is woeful.
  12. Loïs Diony - Confirmed Loan Agreed

    One thing I will say is that there must be doubts about Djuric's impending return to the side. He was only meant to be out for 3 weeks after his latest op. And that was just before the Man U game. Clearly nowhere near ready because I doubt we'd have made this signing if he was due back soon.
  13. How to negate "the press"

    Ta. Hence why we signed Walsh and have loaned Kent. At least we now have cover. A real shame about O'Dowda's injury.
  14. How to negate "the press"

    O'Dowda off the crutches? Don't suppose you asked him when he'll be back?? I think LJ said another 2-4 weeks about a week ago. I think...
  15. Pre-match music for return leg

    Well said! It's cringeworthy when teams do it.
