  1. Team for today

    Could be some surprises today bearing in mind suspensions and players coming back.We seem to keep things bit quieter nowadays like pisanos surprise return. Fielding Pisano Wright Baker kelly Paterson Pack Smith Brownhill Reid Duric (60 mins)

    Don't let the b****** get you down at least you have the balls to stand up for what you believe in.
  3. Price of the pressing game.

    Wonder whether our high intensity pressing game is the reason for our poor run and ridiculous injury problems. To play as many games as we have done will have taken its toll anyway but to play in a style which saps even more energy will cause injuries through muscle fatigue. Since our poor run has started we don't appear to be able to sustain pressure on opponents like we did earlier in the season,we even managed to force man City into errors. I'm not to sympathetic about footballers being tired but they do look it at the moment. Would be really interested to know what the recovery Lj talks about actually means.Also they don't appear to do a proper warm down after the game.This should be done as soon as possible and for at least 20 mins to remove lactic acid from the body. I would like to think we have proper recovery systems in place but evidence would suggest otherwise.
  4. Price of the pressing game.

    Couldn't agree more can always have first choice players on the bench who if needed can come on when opponents tire it's the way to do it.
  5. Price of the pressing game.

    Runners wouldn't run 3 10k races a week for a sustained period without some drop in performance the recovery and squad rotation is vital to keeping going. In hindsight if we really wanted to push for promotion getting out of the cups early is a good plan.
  6. Price of the pressing game.

    True but man City have the luxury of being able to rest any of there starting 11 whenever they want and have at least one replacement who will not weaken the team.We don't even like using subs at times.
  7. This is it today.

    I think the season could be decided for us today, lose or draw against Burton with there horrible home record and a probable win for boro would leave a gap and shatter our confidence. The performance at Preston was not a bad one just showed flaws in both boxes.We must be more ruthless. I think we will win today and it may spark a good run, however Lj has a very interesting team selection to make,can see him going for something new. Prediction city win 3 1 Any views on team for today?
  8. Goalkeepers

    If he doesn't come he puts less pressure on defender ie leaving space also if defender messes up he's then not left in no man's land.Golden rule of keeping. If you come for it get it.
  9. On a lighter note, Cardiff LC 2nd leg 5-1 video

    An interesting watch not a lot different to today's game except for less sideways passing and a bit slower also some tasty tackles which didn't even get a booking. Made me remember what a talent Jackie was , most skilfull player I've seen.
  10. My advice to the team to win at Preston

    He'd make a bloody good javelin thrower
  11. My advice to the team to win at Preston

    We wouldn't turn down corners if we got them and hordurs long throws are better as they are aimed at the goal.Stupid not to use them as long as we don't rely on them. In turns of distance I reckon he's up there with the best Andy legg and delap. I swear at times he reaches the back post.
  12. Any good bets for today.

    Anyone got any good tips for today apart from staying on your feet.
  13. Any good bets for today.

    Thanks will have a go thought villa good value at 1.8
  14. Any good bets for today.

    Asked for that I guess
  15. Was watching some American football couple of months ago , pretty sure it was in buffalo.The snow was in drifts and up to a couple of feet deep in places including on the pitch.Was it called off for health and safety , no chance they carried on and got it done.We have a massive couple of inches ,schools closed road chaos and if the city game is on I'm a snowman.
  16. They would be playing in America.

    Fair points still think we're soft though children at school yesterday allowed out for 5 minutes.
  17. Time to stop analysing.

    Time is running out on the season it will soon be getting warm!! The bad run has happened and we're out of top six, looking back over injuries , cup runs , tactics and errors is pointless ( no pun ) The club as a whole need to look forward and get back to enjoying football again and stop over thinking it. It's a simple game , keep it when you have it get it back when you haven't and be ruthless in both boxes. Good players win matches not fancy formations and we have them just go out and play .
  18. Time to stop analysing.

    Man City and Barcelona play very fluid formations with no rigid positions they win as they have fitter faster and more technical players, they are also very well motivated the most important role of the manager.Watch the Brian clough documentary.
  19. Time to be positive

    We've had a great season .We've got a fantastic stadium.A squad of players with potential. An owner who actually cares about the club and the city and is not using it to rip off fans. Yes our form has not been as good recently but every team in this league is capable of winning games and nobody just rolls over.The reality of football is you will lose games it's a case of how you respond which matters. As fans we need to realise what a great club we have and look forwards rather than worry about the past. If your still not feeling positive just think how miserable you'd be if you supported the gas.
  20. What realistic amount of money would you turn down if city could be promoted? What about non financial sacrifices no more cider for life? Rovers to win the fa cup? Working 7 days a week for next year?
  21. Will we make play offs?

    It's going to be great end to the season we've had a bad run and saturdays result was awful.However I feel that this group of players may still have a surprise for some in this league who think we've blown it.Despite our run we are still top 6 and in the bunch and wouldn't surprise me if we went on a good run again, the fans need to stick with the team and see what happens. At the end of the day ,1 we are safe and 2 we've made a cup semi final which at the start of the season would have been great. Prediction we will make play offs.
  22. Prediction and team for today.

    Think frankie will be back today can see Corey back in central midfield with Magnússon centre half, reid and Fammy up front, pack smith centre mid ,not sure about wide players where we have most options. Think we will be back at it today can see us winning 2 0.
  23. How do we get back on track

    Friday was a bad performance from what looked like a team who had lost their way.Only a few weeks ago we were giving Man City two tough games.I think the players are suffering a comedown from these big games.Bolton away on a Friday night at 8pm is not something to get too excited about, although this is the reality of championship football.Going away for a break maybe just what is needed to enable the team to put the cup behind them and start a fresh. Think we need to remember what we have achieved and take this into the next few games .It's not over yet.
  24. Team for Bolton ?

    Steele Smith Flint Wright Bryan Kent Brownhill Pack Patterson Reid Fammy Bolton may have lots of new faces so hoping their not too organised.Keep the momentum going from Saturday.
  25. Time for fans to roar us home

    Crowds and support has been amazing this year matching the outstanding football being played. We have as good a chance as any of the contenders when you consider what we have been through with injuries and fixture congestion. The fans have a massive role to play in determining where we end up this year .The players seem to really lift there game when the crowd is up so keep it up.COYR
