  1. Time to put your feet up Bobby

    Trust our brilliant management team to decide about whether Bobby needs a short break. Don't forget - it was them who realised that he could be moved from his former midfield role to become an excellent front man.
  2. Man City

    Sorry ! Just another post to say how good Man C were last night. Unbelievable ball control from every player, precision passing. Scary pace in attack. Energetic, intelligent movement off the ball and Aguero's goal was almost as good as Joe Bryan's v Man U ! It was a compliment to us for Pep to put out a near first team team choice and a privilege to watch a world class team at their best. But - as many have said, we were not embarrassed last night and many PL teams have failed to score two goals against them in one game this season. The big question now is - can we take our brilliant cup run as inspiration to take us to promotion ? Despite some concerns about our first team being still tired on Saturday v QPR, I think the answer is YES !
  3. Your OTIB messages to the lads today....

    Win or lose, just make sure you walk off the pitch knowing you have done your best. But - if we do win, you are likely to be carried off the pitch on fans' shoulders !
  4. Have we ever been a more attractive club?

    I also became a City fan in the 1970's just after City were promoted to the old Division 1 although I was by then in my early 20's. We had some great players back then but I agree with you, this current squad is the most amazing group I have ever seen and I think we are going places under LJ. Thank you Steve Lansdown for ignoring the noise (not least on here) last season and sticking to your belief that Lee would make a great Manager - sorry I mean Head Coach. Tomorrow is going to be AWESOME - whatever the result.
  5. BCFC v MCFC

    Although the play off final v Hull comes close, there is no doubt in my mind that this is our biggest game EVER ! Playing the best team in Europe for a Wembley Cup Final place - it does not get better. As Man Utd will definitely remember - we are capable of beating top PL teams. I admit, I am just talking this up, but that is the attitude we (all) need going into this game.

  8. Guardian coverage - good read

    We are in safe hands. The entire culture of the club has been rebuilt for the better over the past two years and reading this excellent article is very reassuring. We should be very grateful to SL for backing LJ throughout the dark days at this time last season. Of course we are not going to beat Man City over two legs, but the fact that we are playing them in the semi-final of a major cup competition whilst sitting in the top six of the league with a realistic chance of promotion is a superb achievement.
  9. Signs of progress .

    In the TV promotion for the League Cup semi-finals, Sky Sports are regularly showing Korey's stunning winning goal against Man U and LJ's (now viral) celebration with the ball boy and describing us as Giant Killers. Loving it. .
  10. Atmosphere tonight

    One of my City mates could not make it yesterday and so I invited another friend who is a mad keen Bristol Rugby STH to take his seat. First time he had been to football at AG. He could not believe the noise we made - compared to the Rugby fans. Admittedly they get a smaller attendance, but from where we sit (Dolman E33 - the old Block B) it was great. Admittedly, the Wolves fans hardly stopped singing throughout the game - except just after our goal, but we should never forget that fans who go to away games regularly, tend to be more, well - fanatical. No need to knock ourselves about this. A full Ashton Gate since the redevelopment is very intimidating place for visiting teams.
  11. Public Address System

    As a Dolman Stand STH I agree it has been a bit better for the last two games, BUT far from perfect and if I compare it with outdoor PA's at other events frankly the club could do better. With regard to the possibility that the acoustics vary a bit depending on where you sit, for the record I am in block E33 row 21,
  12. Worst single moment watching City

    It was Chopra - arrogant twit - especially that night
  13. Worst single moment watching City

    I second that - I mean the humiliation at home by Cardiff. It was an evening game - perhaps four years ago? . A freezing February night with sleet driving horizontally into the Dolman stand. And i remember the Cardiff striker (whose name I have forgotten) taunting us home fans with V signs after scoring. I think he scored twice that night. We stayed to the very end (God knows why) but by then there were about 500 of us left.
  14. Wednesday...Lets Have Some Fun

    Could the singing section try to avoid any songs including the word "Red" as Man U seem to regard themselves as the only Reds. However songs including "City" will be just fine and might remind them of their neighbours who are way out front in the PL. Can't wait for a really belting "We love you City, we do........" Not to mention a certain song about cider.
  15. Please Help Me

    Yes, don't forget we are the largest town or city in England and Wales which has never hosted a Premier League Club. We now have the stadium (and the squad) to do this and it's looking good - so far. If we keep up our current form (forgetting the loss v Leeds for now) I think we will make the play-offs this season.
