  1. The almighty 'Unspectacular Clubs Who Play In Red' Derby. 2-1 City I reckon.
  2. Well, '4/20' is the name given to the annual celebration of cannabis culture but you seem to be on crack instead
  3. Yes it is, it's Thursday 20th April...are you celebrating 4/20 a bit too enthusiastically?
  4. to be honest I don't know what else I expect when I go on OTIB on a Thursday
  5. I hope Shaun develops into an excellent player, but if he is one of our main strikers next season than not only have we got this summer's recruitment wrong, but if Engvall can't even get ahead of him it shows how much of a mistake his signing was.
  6. Most likely on big wages at Newcastle and could have possibly gone there for 'one last paycheck'. If he leaves I can see him being snapped up by a newly relegated team such as Middlesbrough
  7. slow news day?
  8. Oh yeah, I understand there was no alternative, it was more of a comment towards what our future recruitment in the summer must be in order to try and prevent such a situation happening again. The two points were lost due to our wastefulness, but there must be no denying that once the subs were made we did look like a weaker side, with Cotterill being particularly ineffective. Can't blame Wilbs for anything though, if anything I give him credit for trying to continue with a potentially serious injury
  9. We cannot afford to be complacent. I remember reading an article about some little team that thought they were big enough to stay in the division, but they got relegated after being in the drop zone for only 20 minutes. It must have made their fans look like right mugs- can't remember for the life of me what they're called though...
  10. I think switching Smith from CM to RB in the same game muddled the team up a bit- especially Pack. I appreciate we don't have many other alternatives, and Smith has had some good games at RB, but from then on the midfield lost their shape and looked confused when for the previous half they had been passing it around for fun as if the Blackburn players were training mannequins.
  11. Forest are deplorable and it would be hilarious to see them and Zach Clough go down. Blackburn could still potentially pull themselves out of danger- once they got Emnes on yesterday they completely transformed as a team and took the game to us.
  12. Given the huge success of the purple and lime kit when we reintroduced it, I think they would be silly not to bring it back. It's something unique and it has genuine meaning to us. The best City shirt that I own is the Thorn Security purple and lime one, sold to me by a very kind member of this forum. White or black shirts are just forgettable, but in 14/15 I wouldn't be surprised if the away kit had outsold the home kits! We've made away shirts of different colours for those that don't like purple and lime, and now it is time to bring it back.
  13. Ah, I see- my mistake. Here is my sicknote, got a bit of a case of 'Monday Morning Syndrome' I can get on board with our strategy, but Gustav's signing had a hint of panic around it. I understand that Kodjia is older, but his stats were better and he was set to go into the first team. Perhaps we should looking at these overseas players if they are a couple of years older than Gustav. To take up permanent residence on the other side of Europe, away from family and girlfriend, at that age is brave but very risky due to all the emotional and psychological factors that come into play as he makes his transition. It just seems too much, too soon for him, and being his age myself I feel this would be the most common occurance for players that age.
  14. Regardless of my opinions about SL/LJ, I was sceptical of this signing from the day it was made. This was a lad who had an okay goalscoring figure, was very young, and had to leave his family and girlfriend. I think it was unfair on him to bring him here so early when he was clearly not ready, and he has been completely messed around when his loan was briefly suspended. My opinion on the lad isn't born out of some prejudice for him due to his fee, or any malice I currently hold towards SL and LJ. To sign a player that barely plays before being rushed out on loan is poor management that will only alienate him- he must think he's made a huge mistake. This move represents how our approach can go wrong and why we must refine our policies instead of taking punts on those with situational factors that will hugely inhibit their progress from day one.
  15. I do feel sorry for the lad but do seriously wonder why we even signed him in the first place- seemed like a bit of a panic buy after Kodjia left. Other clubs such as Preston seem to pick up good players for peanuts and here we are spunking 1.6m (most of which went into agent's pockets) for a nice touch against Hull and a through ball at Fleetwood. Would love to be proven wrong but I see this going down as one of our worst transfers ever.
