  1. Maybe we need an addendum. Ohh Kasey Palmer I'd let you shag my wife. But it's her decision I don't control her life Oh Kasey Palmer Nothing's sexier than conseeeent.

  2. Although there’s the recall option in January, barring massively unforeseen circumstances we’ve seen the last of Matty in a city shirt. That being the case (and it’s the right decision for where we are as a club now), I’d just like to put on record how much I think he brought to the place. Contrary to popular rovers belief, we didn’t buy him to scupper their promotion chances or in spite, but because we needed goals and he was a goal scorer. Did he really bring goals? Nope. But what he did bring was some of the highest work rate and most intelligent running you’ll see. Game awareness

  3. Just don’t understand why LJ, MA and our 30 strong recruitment team, ( plus the Wales manager) with all the stats and figures available for almost every player in Europe should blatantly ignore the OTIB experts who clearly know that his legs have gone.

  5. I'd be bitterly disappointed too. He's been brought in for a decent sum and in that time scored 26 times in 64 starts (11 appearances from the bench) in the league. Almost all of those games he has been asked to play a role he is unsuited to, the lone forward. I think it is assumed that because of his size he should be suited to the role, but he's not. Still, he works his bollocks off for the team and has a reasonable return on the goal front. Playing as part of a 2, I'd wager he'd have scored a few more. LJ changes the formation to go 2 up front and drops him. Must be a bit of a kic

  6. Reminds me of a story my mate told me about his mate who was best man at a wedding. He was told that under no circumstances should he use swear words in his speech because Auntie “Margaret” hates swearing. So he got up to do his speech and started with: “I understand that Auntie Margaret doesn’t like sweating. So if she’d like to eff off out of the room I can do my speech properly!” Heard it didn’t go down very well in one half of the room.

  7. Fam is a big character. Anyone who saw him walk around the pitch at FT will have noticed that this is a guy who isn't going to act the knob. I'm sure he will fight on to play football. Good luck, FD. A real decent bloke too

  8. Look forward to reading that. Was capable of some excellent things and produced them sometime- reckon another who never made the most of their talent. Was because of his flexibility an important part of our excellent 4-4-1-1 in first half of the playoff season under GJ, able to flit back and forth between midfield and attack. The moment at Palace last minute sticks in the mind.... Enjoy!

  9. He's a very solid central midfield player. Good all rounder, who at just 23, has played almost 200 games at Championship level. That says a lot as the level is fast paced and unforgiving. He's a different style to Pack, Nagy or Massengo so difficult to compare them like for like. I would like to see him score more goals though and pop up inside the box. I too think he's a bit better as a more advanced midfielder - but he's not quite as creative as Palmer so in the current setup probably won't get to play there regularly. I think he might play a bit better if deeper alongside Nagy wh

  13. Who wants to mention that despite everyone at Stoke being useless last season, they actually conceded less goals than Bristol City? And we had the best CB pairing in the division according to us. With Dasilva's injury requiring us to play 352 (ish), only having Baker, Kalas and Moore fit plus a never used Baldwin from the under 23s necessitates this signing. Plus I'm sure Moore and Baldwin could actually benefit from training with a CB who spent many of his best years playing for a pretty decent PL side.

  17. Its a real shame to see him leave on loan. He is a goal scorer and brings something different to the forward line. I do think his age is against him though but he is a clever player. There are games which suit his style of play. I get the home grown player scenario but I don't feel it should be to his detriment. I am excited by Semenyo's progression but it should be in tandem with Taylor. All it will take is a couple of injuries and we will be back in a hole much like the left back hole we currently have. I would also argue that from the bench Matty Taylor offers more variation than Famar

  18. To those questioning the positioning of the disabled area in front of section 82, try to understand this. Disabled folk- like my 16 year old son- are exactly the same as you and me. Exactly the same. They have exactly the same rights and should have the same opportunities. That includes the right to choose where in a football stadium they want to watch the match from. You and I have 2 sides, 2 ends, 4 corners, high or low to choose from and, where humanly possible, those with disabilities or special needs should have the same chances. Which is why modern, well designed stadia- which is what AG

  19. Why should a club hell bent on spending huge sums to accommodate as many folks as possible in as safe and comfortable an environment as possible even consider 'accommodating' f'wits desires? Here's an idea - if you don't like or are unable to follow the basic rules of guidance provided sod off and bother somebody else and let those of us interested in watching football get on with it. Trust me, the behaviour and attitude displayed by what you incorrectly term an "unfortunate," incident is and never was anything of the sort. What will be unfortunate is as and when somebody gets injur

  21. The player I thought we were getting from the Gas, and the actual player Taylor was surprised me. I thought he'd be a bit like Tony Thorpe, not great anywhere other than in the box & was pleasantly surprised to see he was actually a better footballer than expected! 9 goals for us in 75 games doesn't look great, but he only started in 27 of those! He also got 12 assists which isn't too bad, 5 in his first half season here which helped us stay up, 2 the season after vs Palace & Man U on the cup run, and then 5 last season which was only bettered by Eliasson. Good l

  22. Well then, that was over quickly! (That's what she said - in before anyone else) Congratulations to @cityboy who joins @TETBURY MASSIVE as an OTIB Last Man Standing champion! Only one brave enough to back the City on the weekend and it paid off! Brentford could've done with Bentley in goal as they let down both @Woodsy & @red_druid by drawing against Hull Woodrow scored a beauty, but it wasn't enough as Barnsley could only draw against Charlton which let down @Starbuck Even a Flint hattrick wouldn't have saved @reddoh from exiting the competition yesterday as Reading

  23. If we're looking at the lyrics like that, it doesn't actually say the person's wife has to sleep with KP. The the singer is saying they'd give permission for it to happen, not that she has to. Equally the singer isn't "offering the services" of her. But since when have football songs been literal? Korey Smith isn't actually everywhere, and the vast majority of teams (in fact all but one) aren't actually the greatest team the world has ever seen.

  24. Genuine question - what is all this about us putting "all of our eggs in one basket"? Doesn't the fact that Afobe signed mere hours after the EN deal fell over demonstrate pretty clearly that we had back up plans?

  25. To all these people saying "his legs have gone " and "he's too old" some said exactly the same 'back in the day' when we signed a certain Norman Hunter and what a signing he turned out to be. So lets give the guy a chance. Taylor Moore would learn lots along side such experience.

  28. By 'sorted' I assume you mean we weed out the fans who are too stupid to behave themselves and ban them, so that supporters with mobility issue can enjoy the game without worrying that someone might throw a flare at them, or, God forbid, we beat a team from a different division, they feel the need to run on the pitch because celebrating in the stand is beyond them.

  34. Thought v Brum he benefitted from Nagy moving it quickly to him. Good game. On Saturday I thought he had a tough first half as Cameron outmuscled him every time he tried to break the lines. With the sub at h-t I think he took on responsibility for sitting in and gave a mature performance.

  38. Well, to be honest the Kasey Palmer chant does suggest that women (wives) are owned/controlled by their husbands. Or, that he should have the power to offer her services to other men (against her will) ? Why on earth would a woman need permission to sleep with someone else than their husband, anyway?

  41. The player and Arsenal were entitled to make their choice. What sticks in my craw is the fact that, if the reporting was accurate, neither he nor anybody representing him had the courtesy to inform us that he wouldn't be turning up for the medical. If that tells us something about his character we may be better off without him.

  42. As I mentioned in my post earlier, I observed that with Nagy (and Massengo for that matter if he’s playing the ‘deeper’ role), are much more mobile than Pack ever was and as a result they will have the energy and pace to defend wider than Pack did. This means that whoever is the other midfield partner (Brownhill in yesterday’s game), needs to be more aware of having to cover centrally, outside the D. Pack never roamed away from here, but now Nagy (and Massengo) will, then Brownhill needs to work harder to cover when they go to defend ‘out of the cage’. I’ve screenshot a couple of e

  43. Weird comment. Of course he is - because he's a young lad not used to Championship football. He will make mistakes, and if he plays a lot this year he will give goals away too which are without doubt his fault. If you're going to play young players we have to accept that, and within reason (unless he's hopeless, which he doesn't seem to be) give him support to help him develop. Accidents will happen, but that doesn't make him a bad player.

  45. Seriously though, only the Gas could claim that taking 1400 fans one and a half hours up the road as travelling ‘on mass’ (?) Obviously one of the many Championship clubs who aren’t actually envious of their ‘bonkers’ away support is us as we clearly travel in larger numbers. Think that’s worth pointing out again.

  46. Update- one male arrested after being captured on club cctv, currently still in police custody( time 8.10pm) myself and the other football officer immediately went to the disabled area as soon as the smoke grenade landed. I can confirm 3 disabled persons at least had to leave the area immediately to obtain oxygen/ fresh air and water. I have been given permission by Oscar to tell everyone he was one of the people and left in total for about 10 mins. He really is a pleasure to talk to , but he is very sad and angry this has happened, and wants it to not happen again I can conf
