  1. If like me you get a little frustrated when the team doesn't take advantage when they should i.e. failing to beat teams like Wigan to go 2nd in the league, dont be too disappointed. I have just checked the October results for the teams currently in the top 10 positions, and only Birmingham have scored more points (9) than we have (8). WBA, Leeds, PNE, Fulham, Wednesday also scored 8 points. So in this topsy turvy division perhaps we are doing better than we think we are.

  2. So far Ive seen two games at the Gate. Leeds1-3 and Wigan 2-2. Next time probably a win. Will look at the Barnsley on telly, hope for 3 points there.

  4. The only thing worse than middle aged men wearing football shirts, is some jumped up little Naughty Word telling them that they shouldn’t be wearing one. I’m middle aged (40) I don’t wear mine often, but I always buy one and where it when & where I like. Especially around people who say that I shouldn’t..!

  5. I flew over here with them when we played Sheff Weds. That was a bad game as well. They brought their wives with them, who enjoyed good shopping time, and everybody made good use of the favourable exchange rate and cheap alcohol, that you can actually buy in any supermarket! It's government controlled over there. They're a great bunch and a credit to our club!

  7. To be honest, it's more about how we're playing than results. Sunday was the pits. We played most of the match like 11 guys who'd never met each other before. Had we looked slick and going for it throughout, I think everyone would've said "unlucky not to get the win" and accepted a draw. But it wasn't like that. Until the injuries return (and let's hope they come back as good as they had been - that's not always guaranteed) recent matches augur ill for us. We are due an absolute spanking.

  8. To be honest, putting some performances aside, I feel like we are where we are, if you know what I mean. 6th in the table, is about right, in amongst the top 6 fight. With an Afobe or two, a few more draws may have been wins. With Kalas and J DS, we probably would have conceded less goals. My feeling is i'm happy for us to just stay in and amongst the top 6/8 until January, where we can reassess, regroup and with the right additions really push on in the second half promotion push for the first time under LJ, with the squad benefitting from the returning players.

  9. So sad but read an article today about Peter Cormack . Now 73 he’s been diagnosed with dementia which the family believe to be football related. He signed for us the first season I started watching City as a 10 year old so I have fond memories of seeing him in a City shirt .

  11. I think the frustration comes from it being a missed opportunity and not playing on the front foot in home games. I think people would be more upbeat if we were more attacking at home and got our points from playing entertaining football. It appears that this only happens when Johnson rolls the dice and we go for it in games. Having said that, I'm not massively surprised given our injury issues. I feel like there's a lot more to come from this side and we're yet to have one of our purple patches that seem to happen a couple of times a season under LJ. The players returning from injury wi

  14. Well this dispels the sob story we do not compete on wages. Sides with far less resources got promoted last year. Outside of parachute payment clubs, we are the leading club. This season remains a big year with the resources spent . We are well placed, and so we should be with that vast spending . LJ has had it all now time to deliver, the platform is there. This is LJ opportunity to demonstrate he has the ability to deliver a promotion side.

  15. This completely...you can forgive injuries, you can forgive poor form with individuals, or even having to play with knocks....but some of the basics and complete lack of understanding by some leaves a lot to be desired. Especially when some have been here more than a season. I think we've got away with murder in some games.

  16. No doubt we need to be more attacking and entertaining at home - watching City is expensive, Winter's coming, and there needs to be a modicum of enjoyment and excitement to sitting through games with the prospect of getting very cold or very wet. We seem to have had particularly bad luck with injuries, but we won't be the only club to have suffered. As they are long term injuries LJ has had the opportunity to really coach the replacements into cohesive units and these players playing together regularly should really go a long way to negate the absence of others. We've got a rea

  17. I really don't want to be negative, but we have all seen how the last few Januarys have gone with signing that one key player To me the biggest loss is Afobe, we just don't have that presence up front at the moment

  18. Nobody has written to me about my shares, probably because they don’t know where I live. I’m not telling them, or selling, as I have a cunning plan. Maybe, at some point in the future, there will be a change in the law and SL will need the agreement of all shareholders to make a major change. By then I will be the only shareholder other than SL and he will have to pay me thousands to buy me out. I’m basing my long term retirement plans on this.

  19. The only person who knows the true figures is Mark Ashton. Fortunately he has made a statement: A lot of supporters have asked about the Afobe deal so let me give absolute clarity on this deal. I've been working at the very top of this industry for over 20 years and it's absolutely paramount that the CEO provides transparency and clarity. First and foremost any deal I'm involved in for this football club has to be right for all parties - it has to be right for the player, his representatives, the loaning club , the Head Coach and most importantly for this football club. I will never do

  25. Yes, most of us have Robins TV and we know that City can play good football. The Wigan game was not good and I think Wigan were the better team. They got the midfield and understod the lack of pace our defence have. The Charlton game also showed how are opponents with long balls came thru our defence. Think its gonna be better when Nagy is back. Dasilva, Kalas, Smith and Nagy still missing and we are top six. It shows that we have a team who is hard to beat. COYR!!!

  28. Were you there Sunday though ? Ignoring the hysterical comments, most "negative" posts are about how we go about playing a home game, and how that had been the case for some time. Luton was hopefully a one off.

  32. Like a lot of people around my age, much of the live football I saw on tv was of Liverpool in the European cup, I probably knew their team as well as the City team of the day and I always loved Peter Cormack as a player. When we signed him, it felt like we had become a proper first division club. He did have some injuries and only played 67 games for us over about 4 seasons, but still scored 15 goals for us. I think his best game for us, certainly the one I remember was against Arsenal which I think we won 3-2, he was unplayable that day. I wish him and his family well, it’s sad

  34. At Scunthorpe away a couple of seasons ago, I wore my Nibor Purple shirt to the match. I'm in my 50s. The shirt was over 25 years old. I didn't and I still don't care whether people think that I shouldn't be wearing that old football shirt. Why? I'll tell you why, because I was still able to get into it!

  35. I was taken to Arsenal vs Liverpool in the champions league once ... it wasn’t a brill game. Walking out after I saw most of the Arsenal players drive out of the underground players’ car park at their stadium - the usual array of Maseratis, Porsches and Ferrari was on show .... and then Kolo Toure drove out in a Ford Focus containing his wife and kids - I kinda respected him after that - he may have had a serious motor at home but didn’t rub supporters’ noses in it at the stadium ...

  36. On Wednesday I saw someone driving a Ferrari into the car park and revving the engine. I though this chap must be a berk, then saw it was Kalas, so decided he was a very sensible person just revving the engine to ensure nobody was bumped by the car

  39. There are 40 year old gasheads staggering home from the pubs in Patchway and Filton right about now, they will stop for a wazz against their neighbours’ garden walls before realisation hits them hard ... and they will slur out loud to themselves: “******’ hell, I was 20 years old the last time we finished above them pesky teds, I was a face in Chasers, I had Ollie’s mobile number, I was locked out at every single away game cos we always took massive numbers away..” - then when the wazz has dwindled and the cold, harsh night kicks in, they will look skywards and silently wonder “What happened?

  43. Just remind me of Cott’s achievements since he left City . Who is he managing today ? I am eternally grateful to the man for the time he gave us but he shot himself in the foot and had Lansdown ‘ backed him ‘ we could well have been in the brown stuff in terms of FFP . All Cotts wanted was to win football matches at any costs and he didn’t care about the long term affects on the club .

  44. COD used to have a Merc, but now has a Range Rover, COD 11. Fam has a black Merc with a French plate. Kalas has a Ferrari. J DS will need something with a booster seat so that he can see over the steering wheel.
