  1. Magnússon in the papers today (Merged)

    He's just a really lovely bloke, isn't he? Would like to see him get more of a chance. I think he's a real talent. Understand that he is stuck behind Baker at the moment but if you ask me I'd be going to him first to play left centre back next time Baker can't play.
  2. Eliasson Signs!

    Typical Evening Post. He's Swedish, not Finnish
  3. Media Officer Vacancy

    There are definitely people on here who think they could do a better job than the current lot. Your opportunity to put all your hard hitting questions directly to LJ: Is Flint going anywhere? Can he handle a maverick? Is the fact he's built one of the tallest squads I can remember a result of his short man syndrome? Which species of Triassic bantersaurus is he descended from again? What does he think of Spanish claims on Gibraltar?

  5. Eliasson Signs!

    If it does happen that doesn't even do it justice. Lyon are regulars in the Champions League and were in the semi finals as recently as 2010 against Bayern. They won 7 consecutive Ligue 1 titles between 2002-08 and have been a production line for some of the best French footballing talent, see Essien, Malouda, Benzema, Lacazette and many others Were we to sign Eliasson over Lyon as others have said it must be down to a question of playing time. Money plays a role sure, but he must feel his career is better advanced by forming part of our Nordic spine: Magnússon, Engvall, Eliasson (okay, wishful thinking maybe)
  6. Bobby Reid Appreciation Thread

    Amongst the many things that I love about Bobby Reid, my favourite has to be that his sister is the Labour member for Battersea, Marsha Decordova. How he construed to miss some of the chances he had last year I don't know. He was always in the right places but I think suffered from a good measure of bad luck not to score a few more. Hope he finds his stride this season because, well, we could do with him being good.
  7. Very moving interview with Steven Caulker in the Guardian today. He's been struggling with mental illness, alcoholism and gambling. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2017/jun/29/steven-caulker-mental-illness-addictions-gambling-drinking-qpr It's also troubling to read as a City fan: “The sleepless nights, sat up till 5am replaying every bad decision I’ve ever made in my life, worrying what will be next … Tottenham sent me to Bristol City on loan at 18 and they put me in a flat in the city centre surrounded by nightclubs, two casinos opposite, the kind of money I’d never seen in my life, and no guidance whatsoever. I was pulled once by a member of staff and told I’d been spotted in the casino at 3am but their attitude was: ‘What you do in your spare time is your business. Just don’t let it affect your performances out on the pitch.’" Like many fans I thought Caulker was one of the best players to pass through BS3 over the past few years and I thought the sky was the limit. He was certainly better than his fellow Tottenham loanee, Danny Rose, who to my continued bafflement is a regular England international these days. I'd be devastated to think that we had let him down and I sincerely hope that we are more conscientious about this sort of thing now, although Tammy's car accident says maybe we haven't... All the best to Steven in the future. Hopefully he can rediscover his form and crack the England team again someday
  8. New badge

    Could do with a silhouette of the suspension bridge behind the robin. But I also would rather we kept the current badge.
  9. The alternative to Hull being relegated and a long away trip is Hull playing in the Premier League, which is, if anything, worse. League One for them would be a perfect solution to that problem but that's just wishful thinking.
  10. A thorough analysis and a good read but the question of luck deserves emphasising. I don't think as a reasonably talented Championship club that you can lose that many games on the trot without having luck go against you for at east some of it. The sort of short-termism that characterises a lot of football clubs often forgets that you don't have total control over the outcome once the whistle blows and the ball starts pinging around the pitch, a deflection or slip could make all the difference - you just never know. So kudos, in my opinion, to the board for seeing through some bad results to see that we've got a reasonable set up and are a decent side on our day. We've been creating chances throughout the season, enough to have won a lot more games than we did. I highly recommend experimental361.com for more context and stats. You can decide how much store you want to put in the numbers but their end of season form graph that'll be up on Monday I imagine will show a city side that consistently did worse than you would expect for the performances that they put in. Which is not to say that there havent been days where we havent been good enough. Even as recently as Brentford we just didn't turn up.
  11. Has to be Heaton for me. Hard to compare goalkeepers and outfield players but we've haven't had the same assurance from any goalkeeper before or since. And look at the man now: strong argument that he should be England's Number 1 and best goalie in the Prem this season.
  12. Engvall

    Do we get a mention in the commentary here?
  13. 1 from 4 with 8 games to go?

    Birmingham have been woeful. Would not put it past them
  14. No Tomlin

    Maybe he's on a plane to Marseille
  15. "his 15-year-old brother Timmy, a forward on the books of Charlton Athletic" Sensational.
