  1. The 7860

    There were loads of City fans in the hospitality areas so the actual number was probably well over 8,000. When we scored we we all politely sat there and said "yep". (With apologies to Jasper Carrot).
  2. A touch of reality on our signings

    Perhaps if I had entitled this thread "credit to our promotion team" and explained that six of them have kept their places in the face of competition from transfer activity it would have received a more positive reaction.
  3. A touch of reality on our signings

    No I am not suggesting Cotts made better signings ( though Kodja wasn't bad business). I was simply pointing out that despite all our signings we are still playing the bulk of the old league one team, minus Ayling, Cunningham, Freeman, Wilbs etc. In pointing this out I wasn't expecting the `Spanish Inquisition.
  4. A touch of reality on our signings

    We are both City fans and I hope you are right. We have signed young players and our existing players have matured and improved. I suppose I am just surprised that with all the money spent and after 20 - 30 signings we are still in the main watching the greater part of the League one promotion team. This is a fact not an opinion.
  5. A touch of reality on our signings

    I can't be a***d to list them all here but loook up our 2016 and 2017 squads on line including the loan signings. Many of them are now forgotten.
  6. A touch of reality on our signings

    I was including loan signings in addition to permanent.
  7. A touch of reality on our signings

    Ha ha. No problem. Been there and got the T shirt. My 19 year old is still on a video game when I want to watch Liverpool v Everton.
  8. A touch of reality on our signings

    In the brief history of this topic two contributors have incorrectly said that Smith and Kodja were signed by LJ. I despair. But don't let the facts get in the way of good spin.
  9. A touch of reality on our signings

    Rubbish. Kodja was signed under Steve Cotterill.
  10. A touch of reality on our signings

    Doesn't blow my argument out of the water at all. Obviously we have 5 other players in the team but the majority are still the league one promotion team. With 20 -30 new signings I would have expected more changes.
  11. A touch of reality on our signings

    No. Joined in 2014 from Oldham.
  12. I don't know exactly how many signings LJ has made since he was appointed but it must be 20 -30. Surprising then that that the spine of our team is still very much the league one promotion team, namely Fielding, Bryan, Flint, Reid, Pack and Smith. We only avoided relegation last season when LJ stopped experimenting and reverted to these players. Therefore only one in five of recent signings gets a regular place in the first team. Just saying.
  13. A game too far

    Only 3 points away from safety.
  14. Does O'Driscoll deserve some credit ?

    He more than questioned it. He publicly said he would have not paid the fee we paid for him - £350,000 if I remember correctly.
  15. Last season again?

    It's because the games I've seen are my actual experience of City and understandably leave a bigger impression on me than reports of games that I have not seen.
