    How do you try and change the going rate other than making some kind of point?

    This may have been said already but I don't really understand the players needing our support comments. Surely it is their ludicrous wage demands that are necessitating the price increases in the first place. Perhaps a mass walk out would make them think about the impact their money grabbing has on fans. It isn't all the club just like it isn't all the manager when results go badly. I've never understood how lightly players seem to get off. I would support a walk out. If we have to sacrifice three points and potential promotion to make a point on how the club is being run and football in general I think it is worth it.
  3. Interesting talk at Senior Reds today

    I believe there is no scientific evidence but plenty of anecdotal. This leans toward the pyschogical but doesn't disprove the scientific. There aren't lots of studies showing positive scientific evidence but it may be that it is hard to detect. Either way physchology is so important it isn't necessarily less valuable than scientific!
  4. TV Coverage is set to ruin the Premier league even more

    It not necessarily the clubs of the premier league with which I have a problem and certainly not the vast majority of the fans who attend premier league games. My main issue is with the media frenzy and over exposure of a league which, whilst higher in quality is no higher in entertainment value, by media outlets who are (understandably) serving their best interests through hyperbole. Their control over the nature of the premier league with regards to match timings is in the interests of TV fans rather than fans who wish to attend games. My main issue with the clubs would be those who insist on charging extortionate prices when ticket revenue makes up a relatively small proportion of their income. I don’t think it is an all pervading evil but it is not a desirable situation for those who just want to follow their club and watch them compete at the top level whilst maintaining a sense of connection with the club and with reality.
  5. TV Coverage is set to ruin the Premier league even more

    It is somewhat of a dilemma isn’t it. You want to watch City at the top level playing against the best but it is such a shame that it would have to be in the premier league.
  6. An interesting problem in January

    If we don’t go up then we have to hope that the players are really committed to the club and the ‘project’ otherwise they leave, we start again and potentially have another season like last season whilst the new players with potential take time to gain experience. I’m not convinced we have 3 or 4 out of the first team at the moment ready to step up if our better players leave. If it is possible for us to pick up one or two additions that improve the quality of the squad whilst maintaining dressing room harmony to have a good go at promotion in my opinion that would be the way to go. Who these players are, from where they may come and whether or not we can afford them is the obvious issue with this!
  7. Stop the Aston Villa/Birmingham hype on skysports

    Channel 5 certainly aren’t ignoring us anyway. This weekend was the first time I’ve watched the programme and I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone talk as enthusiastically about City as Colin Murray did and I include City fans in that!
  8. Have we under estimated LJ ?

    If we don't beat Bolton on Tuesday I reckon. I'm all for optimism, enjoying the moment and hoping for the best for the future but it is amazing how much opinion has changed since the Brentford and Millwall games which were just 4 league games ago. I think I must be in the minority who thought things weren't quite as bad as all that last season/start of this and will wait a little longer before dreaming of promotion!
  9. Real Madrid signing a 16year old for €61m

    I have never seen City play in the top division. It's not about getting to the Permier League because it's so great or the best league in the world as it sees itself. For me it is about seeing City playing at the top level, it is just unfortunate that the top level is one of the most overhyped 'products' in the world which is now focused on making as much money as possble for people who don't really care about football.
  10. That is why we need to keep Flint.

    I've worried about him at times this season not so much because he's done anything obviously wrong but because he was playing every minute in an at time woeful defence. Clearly he isn't perfect. There can't be many centre backs in the world who are as strong as he is at the 'heading and kicking' but can also deal easily with small pacy strikers and intricate build up. He'll always do a very good job for us in a settled defence with a solid partner alongside him and the character he adds to the team adds to his value to us. Hopefully we can keep hold of him.
  11. A time to remember

    David Noble away at Palace in the playoffs. Awesome goal right at the end.
