  1. Personally, I’ve don’t miss derby matches one bit. I hope that we never have cause to play a league match against them ever again. Why any self respecting City supporter would ever want to see the 15ers promoted is beyond my feeble comprehension. I want them to lose every game they play. COYR. FTG.

  2. I’d be happy to never play them ever again. Growing up in Kingswood during the 90’s when we were playing them and losing to them regularly was Hell at times. Whilst it is absolutely amazing to beat them, they’re unbearable to lose to. Let that shower of shit rot in the lower leagues forever, and their deluded muppet fan base talk about their potential and “incredible away support”, they’re a giant shit stain on this city.

  3. Just for context, Afobe, Williams and Rowe were all written off by a lot of posters on here when they signed as not being good enough. Yet, they have been 3 of the better players in the team when they have come in. Worst case scenario if this guy isn’t good enough is that Fam, Andi and Semenyo keep doing what they are doing and this guy leaves in January. No pleasing some people on here, thinking there are players available on the free transfer market in October who can score 20+ goals is ludicrous.

  4. Unless court documents appear to suggest this woman was completely making it up - which she wasn’t as he admitted it, then it is a complete and utter travesty that he hasn’t been at the very minimum told to apologise to this woman and accept the distress he may have caused all this mitigation “he kisses everyone” what a load of ******* shit. Yeh yeh and Harvey Weinstein is cool because “that’s how he cast everyone in his films” I also don’t care much for this comment to sympathisers “well you wouldn’t feel the same if it was your sister/mother whatever” although I appreciate the sent

  7. Spot on! With some signings 'conventional wisdom' goes out the window. For comparisons you need look no further than Teemu Pukki. You just never know. Judge the player by his performances for City. Viva Espana I say.

  8. Just listening to LJ talking about Rodri in the pre-match presser...a few interesting points: got a 10 day old baby, so uprooting at a difficult time (shows a bit of commitment / keenness imho....or perhaps he wants some sleep!) previously scouted by City when at Cordoba did a pre-season at Grenada, because was under contract, and only free, because they paid up his contract at the end of the Spanish window (so only been without a club since Sept - no like he was out of contract at end of last season) not carrying any weight, looks sharp first training session t

  11. Racism is absolutely NOT a problem at city games. I've been going to city games since 1994. I am brown and i have never received any racist abuse in that time - outside of football i have, quite a bit. I have only ever witnessed two racist incidents and both times the people apologised straight away (to me for some reason :laugh:) The first was an asian referee away at brentford and a city fan called him a paki bastard. - I turned and stared at him he apologised. The second was away at stoke and some shouted n****r at ricardo fuller. Unfortuntely i knew the bloke - we fell

  15. The introduction of Ladrón de Manzanas throughout Spain has been a revelation to my cider drinking friends (including @The turtle) who have long been jealous of the large variety of cervezas available to me! As for the nickname... I like it, and will henceforth be referring to Señor Ríos Lozano as "El Ladrón"

Ha ha, look at you sheeee’ds, 2 points off the top of the EFL, on sky sports almost weekly over the coming month, superb stadium that’s the envy of many, all questioning the merits of signing an ex Barcelona player, as a quarter of your squad is away on international duty. pathetic - and I’m going to knock one out because someone manning the videprinter made a typo and put “Rovers” instead of “City”, because it makes me feel better about being a Naughty Word”

  20. To be cleared completely seems a little bizarre when he admitted to unwanted physical contact. I’m not saying he should be locked up with the key thrown away but this type of behaviour needs some retribution. if it’s not consensual, then it’s not ok. *edit - also feel for this woman having the phrase ‘fat lass’ banded about about 50 times in various press releases

  21. An interesting point about luck is that there is differing opinion of what luck is between coaches and the writers. Many coaches feel there is very little luck in football. Good teams do not get luckier(cliché), they are better prepared and have players that can problem solve more easily due to their skill sets - Virtually everything is controllable (it could and can be affected) v uncontrollable. The bald bloke up in Manchester feels by focussing on his five elements of football and creating governing principles for its variables luck only then exists in rare extremes .. The effects of

  22. I would have thought it was quite obvious? We are clearly one striker short after Afobe’s injury, every fan and obviously the manager was aware of that. Johnson had taken a punt on this guy until January when we are able to actually look at more options. If he’s a success then happy days and if he isn’t we are in no worse a position than if we hadn’t signed anyone. Unless you can point us to that magic striker who is unattached and Johnson has missed?

  23. From the debate it stirred I'm regretting including that Guardiola analogy - the book is not of course so stupid to imply that he isn't responsible for the success that he produces, it is just illustrating a rather neat point that there is a lot of other data required to be able to truly understand and appraise a football team, in just the same way that in the second half of the analogy, actual results aren't always the best guide to an expansive coach at a non-elite team (the bit I thought reminded me of early tenure LJ). It's just the style of the book to give you reasons to question th

  24. I beg to differ . After fifty it’s all down hill and no matter how hard you try you can’t beat Father Time . It’s like an old car , it keeps running , though less efficiently than before , you replace bits but one day it fails its mot and it’s off to the scrapyard. When I was 25 I could fight and beat a man twice my age , I’m 57 now and still can . Just hope we don’t sign anyone over fifty .

  26. Took the opportunity of the international break to read the above book, published in Germany last year and a revised English language version came out this year. It's an incredible read that brings together all the background and trends in football analytics including key prior books and with practical team/player examples. Jens Hegeler's ideas are a key thread to the book with decent coverage of "packing" and it has the best history and explanation of xG ratings I've read (hat tip @ExiledAjax). It also explores the work of the Brentford owner to make a business out of beating t

  33. In my local village (Campillo) the cider is called Ladron de Manzanas………….. literally translates as "Apple thief". If that describes Rodri, I reckon he grew up in the Murcian equivalent of Charfield, Just a-robbin' the fruit like the rest of us did.

  35. Welcome to BS3 Rodri. Given our situation this is IMO a great deal, him joining extends our options up front with no long-term commitment. For him it’s a opportunity to stake a claim for an extended deal, so presumably he will want to do everything he can to impress.

  43. Wow, never thought I'd read about or hear of this guy again. Everyone got really excited when we signed him on loan from Barcelona B, just because it was Barcelona basically, who were unbelievable at that point. He scored on his debut and we thought we were witnessing the next Messi, but it soon became he apparent he just wasn't good enough for the Championship at that point, too lightweight and couldn't handle the physical style of football. He's probably a different player now though, so don't want to write him off. His nickname when he was with us became "That Welsh la
